I AM NOW AS CERTAIN AS ONE CAN BE THAT THE MAJORITY of THE 'DEMOCRATIC'
CONGRESS IS "ON THE TAKE".
THEY HAVE ACCOMPLISHED "NOTHING " IN TWO YEARS, EXCEPT TO DISCOVER "GREED".

STARTING WITH NAN PELOSI, HARRY REID AND NUMEROUS OTHERS, THESE PEOPLE HAVE SOLD THEIR 'SOULS' TO THE BIG BUSINESS LOBBYISTS.

WE, THE PEOPLE, ELECT THESE
"EMPLOYEES, PAY THEIR WAGES, AND THEY ARE TO REPRESENT ("US",) NOT THEIR OWN SPECIAL INTERESTS, HOWEVER, THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY DO....
THERE NEEDS TO BE MANY NEW LAWS INTRODUCED INTO THE "UP-DATING" OF THE CONSTITUTION.

THERE WAS A WAY, CALLED AN ART. V. ..BUT IT WAS STRUCK DOWN BY THE SCOTUS.
OUR ONLY WAY TO TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY AND the 'CROOKED' CONGRESS,

NOW SCOTUS? ARE THEY RECEIVING "FAT" ENVELOPES ALSO ?

MY BIGGEST QUESTION IS WHAT IN THE HELL ARE AMERICAN PEOPLE DOING, SLEEPING, WHILE THESE CLOWNS AND BIG BUSINESS ARE RUNNING THIS COUNTRY OF OURS, FOR THEIR OWN GREED AND MONEY?
HAVE THEY EVER HEARD OF GOD, JESUS, THE HOLY SPIRIT ?

THESE ARE THE TRUE JUDGES , AND IT SHOULD RATTLE THE CAGES OF THE SCOTUS TO BE REMINDED THAT THIS EARTH IS ONLY A STOP OVER, BEFORE YOU ARE JUDGED ON YOUR OWN GREED, DESIRES, AND SINS, AS YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HIDE BEHIND ANYTHING, INCLUDING YOUR MONEY WHICH WILL NOT BE WORTH ANYTHING TO YOU IN THIS "COURT ROOM'.

THE SAYING "WHAT FOOLS THESE MORTALS BE" IS LOOMING VERY LARGE OVER THE HEADS OF MANY OF THESE CONGRESS PERSONS.

I, FOR ONE, CANNOT UNDERSTAND HOW WE, THE PEOPLE, WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THE GOVT. LOST IT ....

NOW IT IS A KNOWN FACT THAT 78% OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DO NOT WANT ANY PART OF "AMNESTY", YET THE CROOKED ONES ARE GOING TO ALLOW IT...??????

WHY, ON ISSUES THIS LARGE, AFFECTING SO MUCH OF OUR COUNTRY, ARE WE NOT ALLOWED BY A "SPECIAL" VOTE, TO END THIS AMNESTY THING ONCE AND FOR ALL...???????

I FEEL THAT WE HAVE BEEN "TIED" UP AND HAVE NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT ANYTHING...AND I DO NOT LIKE THIS FEELING ? YOU ?

START DISCUSSING IT ON ALL OF THE BLOGS , LET SEE IF ANY BODY CARES ABOUT ANYTHING ANY MORE......
