This is the latest thing that got me riled up:
House, Senate Democrats: no tax cut extension over $250,000
This is bitter politics, with collateral damage being sustained by American small businesses. Americas' strength lies in small business. Not big
corporations, but small business, and entrepreneurial spirit. This government is doing all it can to consolidate business into big corporations, I
wonder if it's because it's easier to control big businesses than independent small businesses. Think about it, they've bailed out only the big
corporations. They're consolidating banks into fewer and fewer banks nearly every week. Stupid, stupid, stupid Congress. They have their blinders
on and can only think about politics and are blind to the destruction in their wake. It's so stupid it seems malicious and carefully crafted. It's
the carefully crafted death of independence.
And what about the Patriot Act? We are pulling combat troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, but can we have our liberties back yet? I served in the
Army, and I considered myself part of an organization fought for and defended our freedoms, only to later see them yanked away by Congress. Have we
even considered rescinding the Patriot Act? Remember the days when you could see your family off at the airport gate? When your nail clippers were
not confiscated by the mall police at the airport? By all evidence, it looks like the terrorists have won. Osama is laughing at us suffering from a
thousand cuts, by our own Congress. And Executive branch. And the Judicial branch that upholds these new restrictions on the American public.
Seems everything the government does is to quash the American spirit. They've even passed a law making it illegal to sell fruit and vegetables from
your own garden to your neighbors. www.examiner.com...
...This new bill will place a great deal of authority over farmers, and even freelance gardeners simply growing fruits and vegetables in their
own backyards. Practices such as saving seeds for use the next year would be prohibited and doing so could result in a federal offense, punishable by
fines and prison time. Some speculate that the practice of saving seeds is being banned in order to give seed companies, such as Monsanto, a monopoly
over the seed industry.
One of the biggest groups of people to suffer are farmers. Farmers who provide food for their own families, as well as sell their crops at farmer's
markets, will now be subjected to the authority of the federal government in regards to their crops, and the sale, and even personal consumption, of
said crops. You heard right; it would be against the law to consume food grown in your own garden without the federal government's
Seems the goal of the government is to make the American people more and more dependent on the government. More entitlements, more control. That's
how America conquers emerging nations, by getting small nations addicted to American funds, and threatening to cut the funds off. It's how America
crushes the spirit of independence, by creating dependencies and shutting down opportunities for those who feel independent.
