I wrote to Congress this week.
I expect by now the various services have investigated me and
found me to be an opinionated, albeit harmless to my country ,
This week my communications were:
a) No Big 3 automotive bailout!
b) Encourage bio-fuels research of kudzu before it consumes this section of
the world. ( it is the most prolific plant and it isn't food.)
c) Provide tax incentives for American companies to bring the jobs back home
and a tax hike to those who are supporting the economies of our adversaries.
d) To please don't wimp out on the Hillary can't be Secretary of State issue.
e) To please tell me who becomes president if the courts find Hussein Obama cannot be President because he was born in Kenya. Does Joe Biden become president and Nancy Pelosi VP? Do we have another election?
Do we change the constitution for Obummer?
f) To please hold the line and NOT revise the constitution so Hillary and
Hussein can have it their way !
I am still awaiting a meaningful reply, although I have been thanked for my "interest" by a variety of automatic e-mail responses.
I also queried my state legislators this week on the subject of education.
If we installed an "education lottery" in these waters to enhance the quality
of education then WHY have the schools progressively declined? Apparently
said decline is accelerating rapidly. Doesn't seem to be a plan or funds in
place to address this "unfortunate directional change".
So far, I haven't even gotten an automated response from the state boys and girls.
I wrote my local newspaper to illuminate my causes for displeasure with our perpetually bickering and non-productive County Council. They called to get my permission to run it as a guest editorial on Sunday and would I provide them with a picture? Blowfish would prefer I not. He's afraid our pond will be vandalized by those not in agreement with me.
I just might start calling him Jellyfish any day now.
Blowfish wanted to know if I really thought my efforts would have results?
I mentioned to him the old truth about evil prevailing when good thinking folks shut up. He was not persuaded. Just once I think it would be entertaining if he thought my efforts were, at the very least, an exercise in the freedoms of a democracy. He tells me democracy is over except in the minds of fools like me.
My next communication?
The classifieds "free jellyfish" !
