Can we all agree on just a few things?

OK now, please hear me out. Can we all agree that America has used a lot of petrol fuel since Ford put his first car on the road? Can we also agree that we've been paying taxes on that fuel and those taxes, were to go to maintenance and new construction of our roads, highways and bridges?

I say again, we've been paying taxes on gas and diesel fuel since Henry Ford drove his first car off the assembly line, and the tax money that was collected from the sale of fuel was supposed to go towards maintenance and new construction of roads, highways and bridges. If those things are true, why then is our infrastructure a crumbling and dangerously deficient, catastrophic event waiting to happen? Our government, our elected officials, have been misappropriating tax dollars for over a century with no real accountability. They are not now, nor have they been, doing the will of the people.

Then they have the nerve to bitch about deficits when the majority of the deficit originated from providing tax breaks to the wealthy. Meanwhile, government can't afford their obligation to make payments to Americans who've been paying into the system for decades and when they need it most, the government slash their payments to cover up the fact they can't stop their embezzlement to fund special interest projects supported by the lobbyists of their campaign donors.

To add insult to injury, they've also managed to embezzled TRILLIONS upon TRILLIONS of dollars from the Social Security trust fund, a government created program in which people have been paying a portion of their salaries and wages into for decades. An embezzlement of the people's money, all to pay for more special interest pork and tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations, whose lobbyists have been so nice to them over the years. An accounting entry to divert income collected from taxes and other sources, to pay for things that would otherwise not get funded. Pure graft.

Don't you think it's time to put an end to this overstuffed, unaccountable, gluttonous pig of a government's appetite for self enrichment, ignoring constituents and spending other peoples money?

Raul Revere rode by screaming stuff last night...What was he screaming?...I don't know, I went back to sleep...

Deceit entangles the unwitting pawn with choices that appear inconsequential. They take from you in your best interests. But it's in their best interests not yours. They pollute minds with lies and distortion. A misinformation campaign of purposeful chaos and stress to get you going in too many directions in order to conceal the corruption of their kleptocracy. The greatest country on earth is on life support and our elected officials are playing golf, tweeting, molesting children and knowingly allowing the poor and middle class to suffer yet again from trickle down economic tax breaks to millionaires, that have never worked, and you still expect us to believe it's in our best interests?

I am loath to say we're at a tipping point, when truth will finally unite the common man into choosing between complicit blindness, or rebellion against the unjust and the long corrupted. When the last straw has been placed and the camel's back is broken, I say woe to the rulers, the elitists and "untouchables". The unmasked greed mongers who peddle death in the name of God and country. The elected who fill their coffers with lobby money, choosing wealth over morality, humanity and the best interests of the people who elected them. Woe to them, for the Second Coming and the Day of Reckoning won't amount to a pimple on a pedophile's ass when they finally storm the gates for them.
...just sayin'...

When "facts of life" Contradict Morality.

When the "facts of life" contradict morality, the real questions that should be asked are; who's doing the teaching and what the hell are they teaching? No one is born immoral, it's an acquired trait. The resulting effect is an emotionally fractured society of the morally deviant, sexual misfits, and those who never quite out grew puberty.

We, as a are society, have allowed this conduct to proliferate for generations. From the "girls night out" and "locker room" conversations that either disgust or entertain, to actual unacceptable misconduct by commoner and celebrity alike, that apparently only now shocks our morality. The deviant escapades of the empowered maladjusted, seems to have been the best kept secret of generations. But silence continues to remain the best kept secret of the abused, the oppressed and the victimized. Each of us personally, mother, daughter, father, son, sister and brother, each of us must eventually decide whether we accept turpitude and hypocrisy to be the moral standards of the society we are all a part of.

...the folly of indifference to impropriety.

History not only tells us where we've been, it may also predict where we're going. The last time we as a country were this politically divided, where middle ground ceased to exist because the issues were polar opposites, there was a civil war. We would do well to learn the lessons history teaches because America can ill afford the consequences of ignoring our past or the folly of indifference to impropriety.

America hit the Trifecta; How our government was overthrown without a single shot being fired.

This is the party that's calling for unity. This is the party that wants everyone to forget how they they screwed the people they took money from and screwed democracy and the Constitution in the same breath. A political party lead by people of dubious integrity and intent. A trifecta of deceit and corruption. If the Dem primary elections were not rigged, there is more than a good chance we'd have an old guy with glasses and white hair as President being Presidential. Putting into place a tax funded health care system for all Americans, giving kids an honest to God chance of making something of themselves by at LEAST providing a tax funded college education. People, even friggen Russia, "the red scourge of America", has provided their people a college education and have been doing so since before Khrushchev. (consult your history books) The point is, we probably wouldn't have some orange haired cretin, pulling off the biggest con in the planet's history. The overthrow of America without a single shot being fired.

If you take anything away from the 2016 elections IMO, it should be this; Our country and democracy was overthrown. Both political parties, Congress and the media, are complicit in one way or another. It wasn't done with armies or tanks. It wasn't done with fighter jets or battleships. It was done with the most powerful weapons on earth; the media, targeted propaganda and banks. Election reforms and critical legislation are sorely needed to close some loopholes, but this above all is most important to remember; No amount of Internet censorship or election reform, or Cyber/Homeland Security, can protect us from our own gullibility.

"Well, here's another fine mess you've gotten us into"

It is quite repugnant to lean from virtually every media outlet on the planet, that both the Republican and Democratic political parties, and possibly the most inner circles of our government, were infiltrated and/or aided, by agents of foreign governments or others acting on behalf of foreign governments. This in itself should be grounds to demand new elections be held and an independent special council called to thoroughly investigate the parties themselves and their operations. Impeachment of this President alone just won't cut it, the crisis is just that bad.

The entire administration and line of succession has been tainted. The repercussions of this devastating blow by foreign intelligence to cause chaos in an effort to topple and take control of the United States will be felt for decades because the reach of the operation was so thorough. The most deadliest weapon against America is a compromised government official or someone acting on their behalf and a bank, not a tank. The new battle field is cerebral and monetary. 

Our next steps will be crucial, and we'll need people with wisdom, honor and integrity if we are to prevail. Sadly, it's exactly the lack of those qualities that got us into this mess in the first place. For America and our democracy to survive, this really can't happen again and we must do all that is required to make sure it doesn't. Personally, I would start at the entire political vetting process. Political corruption begins at the source, the political parties and their members who run our government. From the looks of things, they can be found in any city or town in America at the intersection of obscene money, special interests and repugnance.

Cars kill people, will you ban them too? - A cowards cop out.

OK...let's try this one on for size. I'm a legal gun owner. But when the discussion goes to; "hey cars kill people everyday. Are you going to ban them too"...I just have to roll my eyes and cringe at the stupidity. Guns are made for the specific purpose of maiming and killing. They were not made to be paper weights and they weren't made for target practice. Target practice was invented to become proficient in using a gun accurately So lets just get that out of the way.

There are nuts in this world. That's just a cold reality of life, but we can't all become stupid just because we have a Constitution and a 2nd amendment. We may not be able to stop all of them but we may be able to reduce the frequency of these types of horrific and deadly events. Common sense and critical thinking must override anyone's sense of a Constitutional right to own stock piles of guns, or silencers or armor piercing bullets. It's all getting a bit absurd. And, there is a reason the government doesn't allow people to have fully automatic machine guns unless they are federally licensed fire arms dealers or law enforcement. It's called public safety and the good of the people.

So to think making adjustments, conversions, or additions to guns to make them operate as if the were fully automatic is OK without a good reason (and it better be because our shores have been invaded and they're shooting)...Most sane people I think would agree it isn't OK...(and no...you don't get to keep them just in case)...

There is no innate right of the public to possess armament such as silencers, bazookas, armor piercing bullets, automatic weapons, military or military style weapons and devices designed for the soul purpose of killing and maiming. Again, that's what weapons were made for and it's in the public's best interests to restrict and deny if necessary access and availability to the public domain.
