Charlie Reese and Common Sense

545 vs300,000,000

Charley Reese has been a journalist for 49 years.

By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does.

You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason.. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-pickingthing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red ..

If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ , it's because they want them in IRAQ

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

They, and they alone, have the power.

They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.

We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

Charlie Reese is a former columnist of the OrlandoSentinel Newspaper.

What you do with this article now that you have read it.......... Is up to you.
This might be funny if it weren't so darned true.
Be sure to read all the way to the end:

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.
Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid..

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
Taxes drove me
to my doom...'

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY? Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
What in the hell happened? Can you spell 'politicians?'
And I still have to 'press 1' for English!?

I hope this goes around THE USAat least 100 times!!! YOU can help it get there!!!

24 Trillion Commitment

This article blows my mind. And it's not all Obama's fault. Nor is it Bush Junior's! But both of these charlatans have much blame. This chain of events has been coming since 1933, 1946, and 1971 but ultimately we have to trace back the genesis to Dec 23rd, 1913 when our Congress agreed to depress the button for our country's eventual demise.

And at least Woodrow Wilson in 1922 had the moral courage to admit that he had "unwittingly ruined my country" in reference to his signing the Federal Reserve Act into law.

The average American cannot fathom this number because it is simply unfathomable. There is only about 8.3 trillion dollars in circulation in the world today (according to the Fed's website in June of 2009), so ask the very basic question how can 24 trillion be repaid when only 8.3 trillion are in circulation???????????????????????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our debt/inflation/slavery system must be scrapped and we must eventually return to sound money, the gold standard, where prices and one's wages are not distorted through some malevolent taxing agency like the Federal Reserve, and until that day articles like this are but pieces of the puzzle.

What Now Israeli Liars ?

I applaud these Israelis of conscience in speaking up. And it amazes me that even when IDF personnel speak up and say that they were ordered to shoot civilians that the upper echelons of the IDF and Israeli government can still play innocent.


And when your own call you a liar, then LIE LIE LIE some more and try and play the victim card, right Mark Regev? Right Bibi? Right Lieberman? Right Livni?

I wonder what Jesus Christ would say to these Jews today who run Israel.

Edith Piaf's Milord

If you cannot appreciate this lady's voice and love for music then you are a hopeless cretin.

Milord by 2 Belles Femmes Francaises

Comme elles sont belles ! Mon Dieux! Quelles Jolies Voix.

My Book Days

For a bookman, this song typifies our raison d'etre.

Bill Withers at His Very Finest

His force and aura blow me away. What a singer!

Charlie Pride and My Childhood

This song reminds me of my childhood, my grandpa, and the South in the good way that I remember it.

A Tribute to IZ

Israel Kamakiwo'ole .... probably mispelled .... had one of the most beautiful voices ever. This song and this video should make people realize that beauty is internal, and a property of one's soul, and does not depend on superficial factors which is regrettably what most people see first in this world today. Notice at the end of the video how many people attended his ash-scattering ceremony. I am sure that if any one of these people were asked what did IZ do for the world they would cite his kindness, his spirit, his voice and his love for fellow mankind, but never bring up his weight. In the grand scheme of things, certain things don't matter.

Inside the Honduran Coup

The SOA at it again. I thought that US interference in Latin America would move away from our old agendas and policies, but after reading this article, there is a common denominator between this Honduran coup and old coups in the past in Latin America.

To learn more of the why, check out "Confessions of an Economic Hitman"

The People Won vs A Corporate Interest

This is a pretty cool story, not for its environmental qualities, but rather to demonstrate that meaningful change can occur when people unite and make their voices heard against a corporate interest.

I especially like the water industry rep's comments after the vote was something like 354-2.

The IRS Attacks Switzerland !

This is complete garbage. Now the IRS is focusing its attention on Swiss banks who are legally obligated to not share bank records with anyone.

One day the IRS and the Federal Reserve System and their machinations will come to an end.

When The International Outcry Reaches a Crescendo

I would expect an attack on Iran by Israel as a means of re-directing the world's attention away from Israel's breaches of international law and re-focus the world's attention on Israel's so-called existential threat.

Murder Palestinians
Murder Lebanese
Steal Palestinian Land
Cry Victim
Cry Holocaust
Lobby the US Congress
Take US tax dollars
Block all Peace Initiatives

then repeat over and over again.

That is the Israeli MO and the historical record proves this thesis.

Business as Usual

It probably goes without mentioning that if the flier had not been exposed the dinner would have gone on. This is just business at usual in our corporate-dominated lobbyist infested government.

Sadly this is the norm and not an isolated incident. What does that say about our "model democracy" ?
