Constitution Pt. 5

January 13, 2010

Section 4. The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators.

The Congress shall assemble at least once every Year, and such Meeting shall be on the first Monday in December (changed by the 17th Amendment), unless they shall by Law appoint a different Day.

That’s it. That’s all they wrote. Simple and straight forward enough don’t you think? The funny thing is, it sounds like this was more of a duty than a career doesn’t it? Meet at least once a year? That sounds quite part-time doesn’t it? Did you know about this? I didn’t think so. That’s why I’m writing this. How much do we pay these blood suckers to meet at least once a year? Anybody? Anybody? Senators – $174,000.00 a year and Representatives $174,000.00 minimum a year. That’s quite a sum for one meeting don’t you think?

At any rate, when we get to it, we’ll see how the 17th Amendment affected this.

Your Taxes

January 13, 2010

Who’s doing your taxes this year? Chances are pretty good that it will soon be H&R Block. You see the number one tax preparer (which I assume is H&R Block) has finagled legislation so anyone preparing taxes for someone else will have to be licensed. Isn’t that great. Fantastic capitalists they are. It’s the American way. Make it so hard and expensive for anyone to compete against you that they just won’t do it. Then, when you are the last man standing, raise your prices as high as you like.

Is anyone else sick of this yet? The Bush tax cuts expired and I got my paycheck today. Eight dollars light. What a pantload.  It just keeps adding up. And it’s adding up to more than this cowboy makes. I heard a theory today. It stated that the Republicans trotted out McCain in a deliberate attempt to lose so they could get this communist we have now. Then after four years of this crap they would be able to gain control of the house, senate, and the Presidency. Fine plan, huh?

The problem is that anytime one side or the other gets full control you, me, and the rest of the American people get hosed. Our only hope is for gridlock. Now isn’t that a load of crap? We have got to take control back from these parasites who produce absolutely nothing and get this country back on track. If we don’t you better take a good look at those pictures on TV of Haiti because that’s what we are heading for. Enjoy.
