You know something? They think they own the government....
...and we work for them? Especially that chickenshit in the White House. He thinks he is the King of the World. He is above the laws. He has never thought that he works for us. That thought, I am certain, has never crossed his little warped mind. The "government" and the Treasury are there to use at his whim. He doesn't have to ask anyone for anything. He is the President. And, in his mind, the President does not have to explain himself. He's the "decider". He will decide what is best for everyone else. I truly believe this is how he thinks... and it makes me sick.

1. Ann Coulter said in 2001...
"We're in charge now. And we're going to make you like it."

2. Yes, they feel entitled to the job and we are not equals, we are peons.
Nero and Caligula. They OWN us, it is the ownership society. The New World Order.

3. You know something? They do and they bought it with donations
to candidates including some who call themselves Democrats.

The question is whether those who work for a living have the ability to put aside divisive issues and vote together to return government to We the People.

We have an opportunity every two years because we could vote into office 435 new representatives who truly represent the people rather than corporate interests.

Will we do that? :shrug:

4. The biblical notion of 'husbandry' is dead in them.
These are the rape-and-pillage 'owners' of everything they can steal. These are people who've been enriched by the labors and sacrifices of others - others often too desperate and weak to bargain for a fair share of the value of their own blood, sweat, and tears. or 'others' as parents who died and left their rotten spawn behind.

6. They think they are owed our government
They drank their own kool-aid and believe the entire country OWES them. They don't seek the betterment of the country, they couldn't care less about people that aren't in their immediate sphere, and would gladly sell their own mothers in exchange for a "permanent Republican majority". They've infiltrated EVERY nook and cranny of our federal government and they'll sit there like ticking time bombs waiting to undermine the next Democrat in the WH.

Here's to eternal vigilance on our part, kentuck.

Maybe we need another karma get-together.

9. I remember those days.............
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 05:46 PM by KoKo01
the great "Kharma" sessions the calling together in the Astrology Forum...when we "spiritualists and metaphysics" used to parse over all of this and try to put it into some perspective we could wrap our "minds around" because what was going on was so BIZARRE most of us couldn't handle it and we kept thinking that there was SOME FORCE...BOLD FORCE that we could summon that would just "blow it all away."

How long it's been since then. But, I treasure those days.

:loveya: We maybe underestimated the enormity of the EVIL...
