Roger’s Rules

"Sucking at the hind tit of a dead cow . . ." and other entertainments for the age of Obama

“Tom Paine” (see below) has some (mostly) sage advice for Americans who are “mad as hell and want their country back.” I take issue with the idea of abolishing the Electoral College (How do you spell “President Al Gore”?), but otherwise his strictures about the dangers of living beyond our means (“Sucking at the hind tit of a dead cow”) and recommendations about what to do about our “non-representing representatives” in Washington strikes me as very sound.

* Representative snippet: “Your dysfunctional elite self-interested non-representing representatives passed the largest spending bill in history without reading it, and you did nothing. You want them to obey your constitutional mandate and secure your borders, and they ignore you. You ask them to enforce your immigration laws, and they ignore you. You say stop the madness of handing $300 billion of a bankrupted treasury to illegal alien welfare rewarding them for making a mockery of your laws, and they ignore you.”

* What to do:

1) “Require all laws that apply to the rest of the country also apply to Congress.”

2) Send your Congressional representatives a tea bag. They’ll get the message.
