Time for ‘We the People’ to Drain the Swamp

To The Editor: When the Democrats reclaimed Congress in the 1996 midterm election, then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi pledged to “drain the swamp” of ethics violations that allegedly went uninvestigated under Republican control. Pelosi further said, “Democrats promise to lead the most honest, open and most ethical Congress in history.” That term, “drain the swamp,” conjures up a myriad of images, a swamp being a place in which many slimy, loathsome creatures exist in the muck and mire just below the surface. I took Pelosi at her word. After 23 years in Congress, she must know of what she speaks. And, as the newly elected Speaker of the House, she would have the power to remove any of those slimy, loathsome creatures she works with every day that broke the law. Then, two years and one election later, on Thanksgiving eve, Nov. 26, 2008, Pelosi said about the ethics investigation of Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), “I have been assured the report will be completed by the end of this session of Congress, which concludes on Jan. 3, 2009. I look forward to reviewing the report at that time.” Rangel, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which appropriates (by taxes) all money spent by the government, was accused of not reporting and paying taxes on the rental income of a beachfront villa he owns in the Dominican Republic. In a less polite way of saying it, Rangel is a tax cheat. He doesn’t deny that he receives rental income, only that he was ignorant of the law that he must report it. This from a man who has oversight power of the IRS. What’s the latest update on Pelosi’s solemn vow? The House Ethics Committee investigating Rangel has issued “close to 150 subpoenas; interviewed 34 witnesses; took over 2,100 pages of transcripts; reviewed and analyzed 12,000 pages of documents; and held over 30 subcommittee meetings.” Talk about the inmates running the asylum. One definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Good Ole’ Charlie is still chairman, which sends a clear message to the American public that our elected representatives refuse to abide by the same laws they impose on us. If we need more proof, one must only look to the health care reform bill from which they also exempted themselves because the generous plan they have is much better. However, Pelosi’s minions are capable of showing outrage. Do you remember their demands for the head of Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) who shouted, “You lie” when President Obama said that the health care bill did not include an exemption for illegal aliens. Although Wilson’s statement was true at the time (the exemption has since been deleted from the bill, at least for the time being), it was a breach of polite decorum and Wilson was brought to the well of the House chamber and given a “resolution of disapproval.” The Democrats are phonies full of indignant rage only when it comes to the ethics of a member of the opposition party. They simply refuse to police and remove their own. Time is running out for Pelosi and the rest of the politicians who run Washington with a 19 percent approval rating. The result of our governor’s race proves that when the voters are unhappy the party in power is held responsible. I’m going to love the election results in November when “We, The People” are given a chance to drain the swamp. GERALD F. STAHLECKER Seaville‘we+people’+drain+swamp

    My dog was watching Pelosi on the news. Within minutes he took a dump on the floor. I don’t get it. He hasn’t done that in years. Then I listened to her and vomited. Now I understand.

    Nancy Pelosi is not qualified to answer the phone at my office. She has no work experience, doesn’t identify with America and actually hates the Constitution. She is an idiot.

      yeah, but how did she get in office? And how come there are so many idiots in office? And why hasn’t she been voted out? Seems so strange that a person who outwardly hates the constitution would be in an office that’s suppose to uphold and support it. But then, you have Obama who hates Americans, attended Muslim schools and teachings, professes to be Christian, isn’t a native or a citizen for that matter running the country. He hates the constitution just as much if not more so than Nancy so the two of them are a record team. Their own party want little to nothing to do with the dynamic duel. But getting back to the topic at hand, our country is in the toilet and no party to date is capable of getting us out of it. The problem here is the current party has no intention of moving us out of this recession.

    The only CHANGE that we really need is to get rid of the three stooges(OBAMA,PELOSI,and REID).

    If the Congressional Membership had any brains they would charge this woman with High Treason and vote her out. According to what I have discovered her actions internally could lead to her imprisonment for life. Without going into specifics there are at least five areas in which they could try her which include her activities toward fellow congress persons. Congressional egos suggest that no one has the metal to take the action to remove this maniac from office. She ranks up there right beside Joseph Raymond McCarthy in her venomous activity.They need to take her down!!

    To My Unborn Child

    Goodbye my unborn child,
    Your life is about to be defiled.
    I have decided to play God
    Treading paths where only angels have trod.

    You are not able to speak; you have no voice
    While I have the right to choice.
    With a voice you might ask, “What did I do?”
    My answer is that ”You became you”.

    Since it is you that my passion has wrought,
    I have given this act some thought.
    I have reached the final conclusion.
    You in my life would be an intrusion.

    Please don’t take this as personal,
    I don’t believe that life is eternal.
    So I offer this last good bye,
    The surgeon comes with murder in his eye.

    Jim Knapp

    The is the first scene from MacBeth Act I Scene 1 Thunder and lightning. Enter Three WITCHES.
    First Witch (Obama)
    1 When shall we three meet again? Translation – I’m on a jet plane don’t know when I’ll be back again. I’m off to see the wizard. (The audience is not sure if this Jeremiah Wright or Louis Farrakhan.)
    2 In thunder, lightning, or in rain? Translation – I’m afraid to fly in this weather but we need all the sound and fury available to convince those dumb honkey muthas that the sky is falling.
    Second Witch (Nancy Pelosi)
    3 When the hurly burly is done, Translation (When this hubbub is over. Nancy wonders why so much commotion about this bill? After all it is only a few trillion and we can destroy the way of life for most of the Americans and still keep our jobs?
    4 When the battle’s lost and won. Translation (We are striking a blow for all those little fetuses that did not want to face the world in the situation we created by ignoring Christian values. Beside that we fostered our own illegitimate creation of a Socialistic Welfare State.
    Third Witch (Harry Reid)
    5 That will be ere the set of sun. Translation (I have been shooting craps with the lives of Americans for so long that my car is worn out. Get me a fast train to Vegas so I can spend my way back to prosperity.
    First Witch (Obama)
    6 Where the place? Translation -Well I think Denver would be a good place after all we put on a good show there once and fooled the people. Let’s double down. What is a little jet fuel anyway I like my new plane and I’m a traveling man.
    Second Witch (Nancy Pelosi)
    7 Upon the heath. Translation – Anywhere in America as it will all be a wasteland when we three get done.
    Third Witch (Harry Reid)
    8 There to meet with Macbeth. Translation – Joe Biden will be waiting for us he has been wandering around since the election with a gag order but now we need him to blubber a bit so we can blame this whole frigging mess on him.
    First Witch (Obama)
    9 I come, Grimalkin! Translation – I have to go, Hillary is calling me.
    Second Witch (Nancy Pelosi)
    10 Paddock calls. Translation – I’m tired and want to go back to my stable for a nap.
    Third Witch (Harry Reid)
    11 Anon. Translation – I should have been at my Alcoholics Anonymous meeting where I go every Wednesday.

    Harry Reid – Fair is foul, and foul is fair: Translation – We took America thru the looking glass and the people are confused as to what is right or wrong.
    Nancy Pelosi – Hover through the fog and filthy air. Translation – I left my heart in San Fran Cisco
    Obama – Chicago. Chicago is my home town. We got Blagos, Dagos and Homos.
    Exit stage left, far left, so far left they get lost and hopefully cannot return for act II.
    The applause comes wildly from the right with the prospect of never seeing these yahoos again. Unfortunately they will be wallowing up to the trough again and again until the well is dry the land is desolate and the Chinese arrive to collect the debt.
    Macbeth – This would be Vice President Joe Bidden when it is proven that Obama was not an American born citizen.
    Grimalkin1a. – (aka Hillary Clinton)This is an old or evil-looking she-cat.
    Paddock 1a – This is a small, usually enclosed field near a stable or barn for pasturing or exercising horses.
    Heath 1 a: This is a tract of wasteland b: an extensive area of rather level open uncultivated land usually with poor coarse soil, inferior drainage, and a surface rich in peat or peaty humus
    Hurly Burly – This great noise and commotion syn. commotion, confusion, chaos, turmoil, disorder, upheaval, furor, turbulence, pandemonium, tumult hubbub, brouhaha.
    Don’t tread on me.

    So when are we breaking out the guillotine and meeting on the Capital steps?

    I would like to thank the hippie baby booming generation for this despicable congress and the head Nazi Obama with Chairman Pelosi’s communist party running headlong into Socialist anarchy.

    To all here. Though I would ruffle a few feathers, facts are facts. Pelosi and the other clowns are exempt and always will be. She herself is not ashamed to admit that her and her husband are invested in natural gas and she is using her position to further that stock for her own benefit. The problem here is that she is not afraid or ashamed to admit it. She was elected to office by the same clowns who voted Obama in. A total unknown, with no track record what so ever. Forget the fact that he’s of color, that is irrelevant. What is, is the fact that he made President by breaking every rule in the book. And he is trampling our constitution without opposition. If you ever felt your vote don’t count, this is prime proof that it doesn’t. So you must wonder who really is in charge. It sure isn’t the people.
