No Wonder...

"...I've never been to one where a politician addressed people by a number and not their name. And yet that is exactly what Specter did. People had to take a number if they wanted to ask a question. When their turn was up, he called out the number instead of recognizing them by name...In Pennsylvania alone, the average resident pays more than $10,000 each year in federal, state and local taxes combined, according to the Tax Foundation. What are taxpayers getting for their investment in return? If they were in Lebanon this past week, it would have earned them the privilege of being recognized by their senator as a number, instead of their name." [link]

Yet these same politicians act shocked, and mortified when they are greeted with anything other than with fawning admiration and open checkbooks and wallets. When you can't treat your fellow man with respect and dignity, what do you expect in return?

Quote for the Day

"It is seldom that liberty of any kind is lost all at once." -- David Hume

What They Really Think!

"The Speaker of the House called you “un-American,” Harry Reid called you an “evil-monger,” and the President of the United States, well he’d just like you to “shut-up [link]

America's political elite are truly out of touch with average American's. They have shielded themselves from the people they are "supposed" to represent that they no longer live in actual reality. They live instead in "D.C. Land".

So Much for Representative Government

"I will vote adamantly against the interests of my district if I actually think what I'm doing is going to help them....I will vote against their opinion if I actually believe it will help them," Massa said. [link]

Talk about a slimy worm! This one let's the cat out of the bag in a big way doesn't he. Effectively he is saying "I do not care what you choose and want, you don't know what is good for you. I am from the government and I know what is in your best interest." Idiots like this need to be voted out of office and then derided and ridiculed until ran out of town.
