“For What It’s Worth”….

Just like the stock market crash of ’29, our U.S. currency is fast approaching the value of cheap wallpaper…… If those BOZO’s in Washington don’t stop being the immoral, unaccountable, I, Me, Mine Morons they are very soon, we’ll all be in the proverbial “Handbasket to Hell”…. No more U. S. of A. as we used to know it….. I say “used to” because I don’t recognize it in it’s current state…..

There are laws “We the People” have to abide by, and there are laws Washington runs our country by – THEY ARE NOT THE SAME!!!….. We have about two (2) to Five (5) percent of the population living off the fat of the rest of us….. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting REALLY Skinny these days……

It’s time to get our country back to the land of a government ran “By the People, For the People”….. There should be no such thing as a “Career Politician”…… Our country was not founded on that belief, and if things continue as they are, there will be no country left to worry about….. How’s your survival skills?……

  1. Friends, would you believe that Lee Iacocca is 82 years old and is still kickin’ butt? Check out his latest rant.

    Remember Lee Iacocca, the man who rescued Chrysler Corporation from its death throes? He’s now 82 years old and has a new book, ‘Where Have All The Leaders Gone?’.

    Lee Iacocca Says:
    ‘Am I the only guy in this country who’s fed up with what’s happening? Where the hell is our outrage with this so called president? We should be screaming bloody murder! We’ve got a gang of tax cheating clueless leftists trying to steer our ship of state right over a cliff, we’ve got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can’t even run a ridiculous cash-for-clunkers program without losing $26 billion of the taxpayers’ money, much less build a hybrid car.

    But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, ‘trust me, the economy is getting better..’

    Better? You’ve got to be kidding. This is America , not the damned ‘Titanic’. I’ll give you a sound bite: ‘Throw all the Democrats out, along with Obama!’

    You might think I’m getting senile, that I’ve gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country anymore..

    The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs.. While we’re fiddling in Afghanistan , Iran is completing their nuclear bombs and missiles and nobody seems to know what to do. And the liberal press is waving ‘pom-poms’ instead of asking hard questions. That’s not the promise of the ‘ America ‘ my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for. I’ve had enough. How about you?

    I’ll go a step further. You can’t call yourself a patriot if you’re not outraged. This is a fight I’m ready and willing to have. The Biggest ‘C’ is Crisis! (Iacocca elaborates on nine C’s of leadership, with crisis being the first.)

    Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in times of crisis. It’s easy to sit there with thumb up your butt and talk theory. Or send someone else’s kids off to war when you’ve never seen a battlefield yourself. It’s another thing to lead when your world comes tumbling down.

    On September 11, 2001, we needed a strong leader more than any other time in our history. We needed a steady hand to guide us out of the ashes. A hell of a mess, so here’s where we stand.

    We’re immersed in a bloody war now with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving..
    But our soldiers are dying daily.

    We’re running the biggest deficit in the history of the world, and it’s getting worse every day!

    We’ve lost the manufacturing edge to Asia , while our once-great companies are getting slaughtered by health care costs.

    Gas prices are going to skyrock again, and nobody in power has a lucid plan to open drilling to solve the problem. This country has the largest oil reserves in the WORLD, and we cannot drill for it because the politicians have been bought by the flea-hugging environmentalists.

    Our schools are in a complete disaster because of the teachers’ union.

    Our borders are like sieves and they want to give all illegal’s amnesty and free healthcare.

    The middle class is being squeezed to death every day.

    These are times that cry out for leadership.

    But when you look around, you’ve got to ask: ‘Where have all the leaders gone?’ Where are the curious, creative communicators? Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, omnipotence, and common sense? I may be a sucker for alliteration, but I think you get the point..

    Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo?

    We’ve spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened.

    Everyone’s hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping the government will make it better for them. Now, that’s just crazy.. Deal with life.

    Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed that there could ever be a time when ‘The Big Three’ referred to Japanese car companies? How did this happen, and more important, look what Obama did about it!

    Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the debt, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care problem. The silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are eating away at our country and milking the middle class dry.

    I have news for the Chicago gangsters in Congress. We didn’t elect you to turn this country into a losing European Socialist state. What is everybody so afraid of? That some bonehead on NBC or CNN news will call them a name? Give me a break. Why don’t you guys show some spine for a change?

    Had Enough? Hey, I’m not trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here. I’m trying to light a fire. I’m speaking out because I have hope – I believe in America .. In my lifetime, I’ve had the privilege of living through some of America ‘s greatest moments. I’ve also experienced some of our worst crises: The ‘Great Depression,’ ‘World War II,’ the ‘Korean War,’ the ‘Kennedy Assassination,’ the ‘Vietnam War,’ the 1970’s oil crisis, and the struggles of recent years since 9/11.

  2. Well, at least three (3) of us (Robo, Iacocca, and me) believe things have gone “Dumpster” at an unbelievably fast rate over the past two (2) years….. I like Iacocca’s reference to “Chicago Gangsters” – Very appropriate…..

    What are we going to do about it?…… Like I said in the Post, “How’s your survival skills?”….. The ultimate crises is here, NOW, getting worse by the second, and our supposed leaders don’t have a clue….

  3. As much as I despise Lee Iacocca, He is correct. What I want to know is what is it going to take for there to be another Civil War in this country? What is it going to take for the people who care what happens to rise up and actually do something about what is going on?!! Being upset about it is one thing but what is needed is action. Now you can say “Well why don’t you be the first?” I am like most of the working class Poor who is taking it up the Wazoo daily, I do not have the time, I am too busy working making a little to keep myself going and giving the lions share of my earnings to the Govt. so the ones who don’t want to do anything for them selves can get fatter on my dime. I urge everyone who cares about where this country is headed to read the constitution and do not EVER vote for an incumbent. Vote The Bastards Out and lets take back our country do this until some one starts the war. ( I know I will probably get put on some “watch list” Because I support the overthrow of the Govt. Let me make this clear I DO NOT SUPPORT THE OVERTHROW OF THE GOVERNMENT, I want a government of the people, By the People, And For the People!!!! Not a Government comprised of the Ruling class. Our country has become a Class Based System, bordering on a Socialist Form of government. Anyone who doubts this read Karl Marx and Frederich Engels. Thank God for this forum that we have here and the 1st Amendment so we can say what is going wrong.

  4. I’m right with you Mr. J. ….. I just hope it hasn’t gone too far….. The question in my mind is that, unfortunately, the situation has got so bad, that the people who have enough power to make the changes needed to give our country back to us are the SAME ONES who caused the problem in the first place, and they have no intention of giving up one ounce of power or money that they now control….. It’s a “Catch 22”, but, if it does (maybe I should say “When it does”) come to the downfall of our governing system, I think those individuals may find that they are not as “untouchable” and “protected” as they thought they would be, because, right now, they could care less about anything that doesn’t benefit them – I, Me, Mine is all that’s on their minds…… It’s Sad….. It’s Bad…… It needs to CHANGE and it will SOON – One way or the other……

  5. I’m with you, but we must be in the minority. Just watch the election results when they say 20% of the registered voters voted. That is just plain sad. If the people that don’t like it would vote. Maybe we could get some change. Revolution sure sounds good but they’re to lazy to vote. What makes you think they’re going to rise up and demand change. It seems the only people who vote are the happy ones. In order to have government for and of the people we the people need to let them know what we want, that means get out and vote. Vote out the incumbents. Vote out spending like “Maps”. Vote no to tax increases. Vote. Vote .Vote.
    Let the people rise up and be heard VOTE.

  6. Robo, You are right again. You bring up an interesting fact, As you say(and the media also) “20% voted” What the media does not state but we all know so well is that a lot of non voters Myself included Did not have any candidates to vote for. I being an Independent had no candidates without a D or R next to them. I have gotten so radical that I will not even vote 3rd party. I feel that partisan Politics is part of the problem. The Dems have their agenda, The Gop Theirs, even the 3rd parties have one, The only agenda that I want to hear from any candidate is they “Support, Protect, and Defend the constitution of The United States Of America, And will to the best of their ability Defend the United States against all Enemies Foreign and domestic.” And that the only reason that they are seeking higher office is to help run the government the way that their constituents wish. I say “abolish Parties, and Lobbyists.” The country has gotten so far away from 1 man 1 vote, It’s the Golden Rule, He who has the Gold Makes the rules. I do agree with the Laziness factor, But there is also a segment of the population that does not have a vote anymore.

  7. J.J. I’m not saying that your wrong but it all starts by voting. We can vote on more then just who’s in office we can vote on tax increases and on bond issues. I vote no on all tax increases and I vote no on all bond issues. I also vote against the incumbents just like you suggested in comment #3 and I quote ” I urge everyone who cares about where this country is headed to read the constitution and do not EVER vote for an incumbent. Vote The Bastards Out and lets take back our country do this until some one starts the war.” SO LIKE I SAID VOTE. It all starts by getting people other then the politicians to vote that means you J.J. if you and all like you and me where to vote the incumbents would not last one term. So PLEASE VOTE.

  8. Robo, Please understand. I do Vote on all State Questions, City Bond/Tax issues, And Judges. ( I always vote against the incumbent) But I refuse to vote for any political office that only has, Or gives me only the 2 party options. I vote absent T because I am mostly not in town on election day, and I do not make a mark by any name for those offices that have any party affiliation beside them.

  9. Cool, J.J. I can understand and agree with that. I grown tired of voting for the lesser of two or 3 a#$holes. Mostly I just vote against the incumbent. I think, I will start to vote against big spenders too. I just wish every one would vote. I don’t vote every time I can and I’m not saying every one should I’m saying every one should vote at least some of the time, and on what they find important. If you don’t like the politics and you don’t vote you are not using your voice to try and make change. If we vote and there is no change then it’s time for revolution. Vote for change or vote for the same thing just vote, and if like J.J. you think there is no suitable candidate then vote by not putting a check mark next to any of the a#@holes.

  10. Our Governments – City, State and Federal – have made sure that everything concerned with changing their current method of operation is a very complex, complicated, and involved process….. We must, therefore, use our “Right to Vote” (as has been pointed out very plainly by Robo and J.J.) to start ridding our system of “I, Me, Mine” people…..

    Everyone should vote on every election that they are eligible to vote on….. In Oklahoma, the news media is very lax about informing the public what is on any particular ballot – who’s running for what and/or what bonds or proposals that may also be on the ballot….. In this day and time of the internet, everyone has the resources and should research each election beforehand….. I admit, I am a little lax in that area myself, but, I do make it to the polls and cast a “Best Guess” if I have to…… It, at least, gives me the right to bitch about those people or proposals that I voted against or admit that I screwed up and voted the wrong way….. At least – I VOTED!!!…..
