They have some crazy plans for us.


You think legalizing prostitution is CRAZY???

Even my Mother (DoB 1917) and Grandmother were FOR legalizing Prostitution. There is no way you are going to stamp out prostitution so Regulate it, TAX it, and protect those poor girls from disease and abuse instead of tossing them in jail.


As it stands now we have the highest incarceration rate in the world. One in four adults have a criminal record and therefore can not get a decent job. Our prisons are so overfull the Supreme Court has ordered California to remove thousands from their over crowded prisons...

So how about making drug and prostitution legal and focus on the REAL crimes, Murder, Rape, theft, and FRAUD (aka fractional reserve banking :lol
As it stands now, in one state, having ammunition (not a gun) WILL land you in jail for two years (a gun and Ammo is ten) but stealing a semi-truck and trailer and driving across state lines nets you a MAXIMUM of two months probation (with four prior convictions!)

Tom Udall (Democrat NM) on the Senate floor calls for a full debate. Saying congress and the Senate acted in hast when passing it the first time....


GOOD for TOM!!!!

I think after this and after Nancy Pelosi said, "But we have to pass the [health care ] bill so that you can find out what is in it." It is past time for the READ THE BILL ACT!


Rep. Conyers: Don't Read the Bill

“I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill,’” said Rep. John Conyers. “What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”



That's an elected member of Congress explaining why lawmakers shouldn't bother themselves with reading bills. It's just too gosh-darned difficult. And who's ever heard of lawyers working in congressional offices? Not me, no way.

Seriously, as a representative of a district, congressmen should know what they are voting on and, if they need help, they employ people who can help them read the bills and inform their decision-making process on behalf of their constituents.....


GOOD GRIEF! What the heck are we doing electing these S.O.B.'s for if it is not to REPRESENT OUR INTEREST???? And that means READING and UNDERSTANDING what they are voting FOR!

I thin it is time for THIS

The clearer you make it, that you do not represent joe didntgivemeabuck average, the more likely it is that those who did fund your election campaign, will fund your reelection campaign.

This is why I am voting for Ron Paul, We are only asking that they do their freaking jobs! You think if I went to work and failed to read a report the people I work for would say: "Well it is really long, why read it, thats only what we pay you for!"

Sorry but no, California is releasing prisoners NOT because of over crowding, but because they are going BROKE and trying to trim the fat and cut corners......

They were talking about doing this last summer to bring down spending in California........

Over crowding had nothing to do with it

Well, it's over. Obama signed the four year extension minutes prior to the midnight deadline.



Paul agreed to let the bill go forward after he was given a vote on two amendments to rein in government surveillance powers. Both were soundly defeated.

So I Intentionally turned the volume up, and made it so my Dad( A somewhat left leaning Obama voter) had to listen to this from Rand.

First Question from him after it was over...


Q: who was that Guy?.( I have made him listen to Ron Paul on Issues in the past) And he really likes him.

A: Rand Paul, Ron Paul's son.

Him: Oh! You know What? I never liked that stupid patriot act.

Me: I know! What is the point of having Security , if you have to go through metal detectors? And if you have to do...(Insert famous.. "Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one." Thomas jefferson."

Then i said.. Well Barak Obama just gave a big old..CHECK mark to the patriot act.

He shook his head and said "I know"

Things are moving in the "Right" Direction. So long as we can avoid the Douchebag's like Romney, Palin, Trump, Huckabee, and other's who speak only half truths. We need a Paul in the white House.

The sad thing is this something that should have happened long before Obama came into office.

When the Patriot Act was first conceived all those years ago, I literally cringed at the mere thought of our civil rights and liberties being chiseled away. Now we're here nearly a decade later still trying to get this mess rescinded.

The paid off puppets in the house and senate are not about to go
against what their puppet masters want.

Hillary has clearly said who is really in charge.


I like this wikipedia diagram of corruption

Apologize if this has been posted before

For those who do not know it, the CFR is not part of the government is a Rockefeller org.
