Some years ago famed newspaper columnist Dave Barry offered a way for our country to deal with runaway government. He proposed “The Dept.of Louise.” Louise, a 38 year old mother of three, totally involved with the laundry, PTA, grocery shopping, and soccer practice, would be consulted before any government action or spending could occur. “Louise, we need twenty million dollars to build a new landing strip for wild geese.” And Louise would say NO. “Louise, we need ten million to study the sex habits of the Ugandan box turtle.” And Louise would say NO. “Louise, we need to eliminate the second amendment and greatly change the first and the tenth. In fact we need to throw out the whole Constitution and write a new one which would better serve our special interest.” And Louise would say NO and you have to hurry because I have to pick up my kids from soccer practice.
the people, need to find our backbones and say to the bully government,
NO. A government which decries bullying in schools is the biggest bully
of them all in every aspects of human interaction and they need to hear
the word NO from us.
moronic State Senator in Florida is proposing legislation which would
require any purchaser of ammunition to take an anger management course
and have a waiting period. Colorado is proposing an end to pump
shotguns. ICE is releasing thousands of illegal immigrants to prey upon
the citizens. All across the country government agencies are bullying
the American people by instituting rules and regulations with little or
no thought as to the outcome. To all of these idiots I have one word,
NO. We are free people who have been endowed by our Creator with certain
unalienable rights including life, liberty, and the pursuit of
Founding Fathers knew what government oppression was. They lived with
it everyday. They knew what government overreach was. Our Constitution
was written to protect us from our government. Our freedoms are not
granted by the Constitution, they are our unalienable right. They were
granted to us by our Creator. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights
were designed to keep government off our backs and their boots off our
necks. As free people we decide what is best for us. There is no person
or group of persons on earth intelligent enough to decide what is best
for me. I make that decision. Sorry Mayor Bloomberg but it is my
decision whether I will buy sodas in 60, 80, or even 100 ounce
containers. It is my decision as to what cooking oil I will use. It is
my decision whether I will allow my offspring to nurse or take formula.
It is none of your damn business. Take care of yourself and I will take
care of me and mine. Stop trying to bully me.
where are you now that we so desperately need you? Where are the people
who will just say no to our runaway government? We have a book of
rules. We have a manual of operations. We have the law. We, the American
people, have the U.S. Constitution. I regularly re-read it. I often
refer to the Bill of Rights. Those individuals whom we have hired to
serve us as representatives need to also re-read these documents. Many
seem to have forgotten what is written there.
who serves in government has to swear an oath to uphold the
Constitution from the president on down. None are exempt from that
requirement. It is incumbent upon us, the voters, to hold their feet to
the fire. I’m pretty sure no one in Washington wants to hear from
