Government intrusion, why can't they hear it...


That seems to be the real question. Regardless of the label you carry, left or right, the government is extending and pushing toward levels of involvement in your life not yet attempted. There are regulations that tell you how much water you can flush down your toilet, schools are sending home papers to be filled out asking how many people live in your home and wanting you to circle the "correct figure" that matches your household's annual income. Don't worry though... it's to be kept confidential.. for grant purposes... even though your name and address appear at the top of the page next to the bar code....

Now, every time you see any media it's full of scenes from these town hall meetings of angry people yelling at senators and representatives. The left leaning people are screeching "it's staged!" and the right wingers are belching forth with "see! i told you!".. Protests being staged and backed by sponsors is nothing new, most are, and always have been.

What's behind the anger that these people are expressing is fairly clear to me. Government intrusion in general. Quite frankly ladies and gentlemen suffering smugness.. we are tired of it. By all means continue to label these people as rubes, uneducated, racists, staged, zealots, xenophobes, etc, etc... You are easily making their points for them, Why you ask? Because everyone is watching, that's why...

I live in Georgia, the land of the eternal racist.. I must admit that I haven't heard mention of obama's race at all. What I am hearing is a daily round of, "Damn...". Working in small business is a scary place to be right now. Our book keeper is telling us what's coming down the pike, and we don't like it. Since we are a business with a single owner the business income is listed as personal income, and the taxes will go up, being that we gross over 250k per year. That simply means that our business will have more money taken from it by the government in this already tricky economic atmosphere.

On a personal note, it irks me to watch people finally getting to confront these ass-hats from Washington, and then see the cut away to a smug faced commentator as he/she launches into the usual attacks against the people you just watched demanding answers from their representatives. Quite like being stuck in a room with bill maher as he rants about how stupid southern people are. Then I make the rounds to blogs and news sites to be treated with the litany of "my god these people are stupid... health care for free? who doesn't want that?"

Tonight I watched as Claire McCaskill a senator from Missouri dealt with people shouting at her at a meeting. And what were they saying? "You work for us" "Why cant you hear us?" These people are like me. They don't care if obama is black, they don't care who's fault it is. They are just tired. What was her response? "why are you being rude?" give me a damn break.. It's time people were rude, they don't seem to pay any attention otherwise...

We work all day long. We are kept away from our homes and families for ten to twelve hours a day. The time we put in is turned into money. The government is taking 40 to 60 percent of our time already, and they want more. When we turn on the lights in the morning the meter is running. When we turn on the water, when we drive, when we buy gas, food, when we drop the kids off at school, when we get home and turn on the television, or talk on the phone, when we pay property tax on our homes, land and cars... The government has its fingers in everything we do.. They make money from all of this, not to mention from our incomes as well... We are taxed when we earn it, when we invest it, when we save it, when we spend it, and dammit.. when we die and leave it to our children... enough is enough already.. Going to build a house? Why... you must do a perk test, dig a few holes in the ground, then pour in some water and time how long it takes for it to drain out, then write it down on a form, then turn it in to your local government office... AND you get to pay them $175.00 for the privilege...

We the people that actually get out there and work our asses off and pay the taxes on everything from income to food, utilities, clothes, cars, property, homes, phone usage, television, internet, death, birth, medical needs, school, etc etc are getting a bit fed up with whole mess...

Government employees have no problem voting in raises for themselves while we squirm to keep our jobs and pay their bills. The size and scope of this group of miscreants grows each quarter, regardless of which party sits in majority, as the economy that funds them shrinks each quarter. This is not sustainable. It's simple mathematics.

They jail people who cook books and put out false financial statements to wall street while they do exactly the same thing to us. They draw power and money from us and we continue to put the same people in office term after term. Why are we not marching on Washington with pitch forks and torches? Let's get the government to sell some of the prime real estate they own in the heart of our towns and go to cinder block buildings with single dangling light bulbs next to landfills and dog pounds.. sell off some of the marble flooring and new computers and get some PROFITABLE businesses in their current locations so that the economy can grow...

Pass term limits to go back to a true citizen government, pass the fair tax to get them the hell out of our money and lives, and hold heir asses accountable for every dime of ours that they spend... Once all this is done, then we can stand around and point fingers at each other in different parts of the country as we call out xenophobic names meant to impress...

The sad part to me is... I feel that politicians don't care about the money, they see it all going down.. it's sad and scary... I feel that they are more interested in the power they hold, and because of that we should be afraid...

Damn people, start paying attention... Go here and read some of this shit instead of depending on john stewart or bill orielly to tell you about it... pull yourselves together out there before its too late... Because when it's too late... it's over...

...where did I put my pitchfork?

Jules said...

Oh Wendy...you left it at our house. Do you care if I use it?

So right Big Daddy...lots of questions being asked but not necessarily the correct ones.

Just me... said...

Not that they can't..
They refuse to hear..
To hear might mean they have to think about something other than their own self-interest..
Not likely, but maybe...

And I'm just tired..
