This is a page dedicated to not being politically correct. I make no apologies. I feel there is way too much of that today. If you are easily offended, do not read this "Blog". It is full of political and social observations and comments. I am in my own way, attempting to educate all who want to know how our government works and how we can regain control so we can remain a government that is "Of The People, By the People, and For the People.

Hearing your comments and concerns on the important issues facing our country is important to me as I work to represent you in Congress. I believe that our nation's government is only as strong as the individuals who choose to actively participate in its improvement and am grateful when constituents take the time to contact me.
Please be assured that I do take note of your views and will keep them in mind as I continue to represent Southwest Washington.

COULD THE EXPLOSION OF THE YELLOWSTONE CALDERA BE THE CATASTROPHE THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS PREPARING FOR?

Let your elected officials know what you think about this tax. Click on the title to go to the story.
PS....We're going to be doing this a lot because raising taxes is what the Dems to best..........Don't make it easy on them!!
Have we reached the tipping point towards socialism? I guess you'd get different answers from everyone, but I am of the opinion that we are in fact, teetering on the edge and about to fall. I don't think it will be possible to get back on the side of capitalism once we fall. Before the election, I would have never believed we'd be where we are now with all the so-called bailouts. It seems everyone is rushing to get in line for a handout and no one is thinking about the future ramifications of their actions will have on the country. What I am speaking of is how much control the government has in our private life and in private industry, and how that relationship manifests itself in the end products and lifestyle we will be forced to live (or endure).This country was not founded nor was the Constitution written so as to allow big oppressive government. In fact it was crafted with such verbiage so that it wouldn't. When the government is allowed to pour money into ANY endeavor, it will always take some sort of steps to control whatever entity it is. Look at state governments. For example, if a state refuses to "play ball" with the Feds, what do they do? They threaten to cut off whatever Federal aid moneys that will have the biggest impact on the offending state. Usually that works and the state complies. I am sure that the same tactic will be employed with the automakers, banks, newspapers, corporations, or whatever organization/s come begging for a handout.I am sorry to say that anyone who does not believe that is either ignorant or deluding himself or herself. It is a fact and it will happen. Those that have read this "Blog" may have noticed that I have not written one word of criticism about GW Bush. I am however forced to do so now because in part to new revelations AND what I have learned since starting this publication. He has firmly and decisively put us on the path to socialism in the latter months of his administration.Much to the dismay of his fellow Republicans too I might add. He is going to go down in history as the highest squanderer of money in Presidential history. He has single handedly put us on the road to socialism. Those that know me will know that writing this about GW is difficult for me because he was my last Commander and Chief as I retired from the military on his watch. I have always been of the opinion that he was a great President especially because of what he did to protect the country after 911.(My generations Pearl Harbor) Since my retirement and especially within the last year, there has been some revelations on my part that causes me to call into question my loyalty and high opinion of him. This move toward socialism is one. There is another but I will reserve that for a future post. But, moving on, everyone needs to pay close attention to the political dialogue going on now especially on the side of the Dems with regard to the Federal bailouts. There was a time when they (The Dems) were all against big business, but now all they want to do is bail them out. If you listen to Rep. Barney Frank, Dem. MA, talk about the bailouts, you'd hear him say now that corporations aren't about big business, it's about the people in them and how we should not allow them to starve.Well, nobody wants anybody to starve and nobody will, but his political double standard slip is showing and he is revealing himself to be the career politician that he is. Personally, I can't stand to even listen to him. I find him offensive in speech and appearance. I am soooo glad he is NOT my Rep, however we here in Washington State have our own career politicians and they are also Dems. So with that being said, and both Houses are controlled by the Dems, we are headed towards socialism like a snowball headed to hell.The United States of America, as we know it, is going to cease to exist very soon because the politicians are running toward that goal line like a track star running for the gold in the Olympics. Has everyone forgotten about socialism's history and it's current state today. Has everyone forgotten these famous words spoken by Winston Churchill "Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it". Or even for our socialist friends who admire Karl Marx "History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce."The only thing we can do is be vigilant and keep track of all of their actions on the floor and they’re voting. Please contact your elected Reps and tell them how you feel about our future as a nation and where you think we need to go. If we are not vigilant, we are will falter and we WILL get the government we deserve because we didn't stand up to them. Please use your rights now while you still can!!
