C'mon people. We're getting slapped in the face daily. I'm telling you that these 'gentle people' are testing OUR resolve. They want to tighten up control, and in order to do that they need to see where we all stand.

Now we come to find out that the TARP bailout money that the American People overwhelmingly didn't want, is actually going into the same people's pockets, who made it law!

This has become a government without representation. We the People have become little more to the power elite, than hot air, and these people will just crank up the "air conditioner" all at our expense.

We are the donkey with a carrot dangeling from a stick, in front.

GRRRR!!!

I just read in one of tentickles posts that said that lawmakers can also invest in companies that are getting ready to benefit from a law they are making. Yep, I'd say that's insider trading - for you or me, but then we aren't above the law.

Do as I say, not as I do!!! LOL, that is what burocrats in our country expect.

I'm thinking that if the US American People stood up like our British brethren, then our 'leader's' would change their tune. However, changing a tune is a bit late.

It is time for action, and letting the PTB sing the jail house blues.
