REMEMBER CONGRESS IS BROKEN. IF THEY RECEIVE A FLOOD OF EMAIL FROM US, THEY WILL BE ENCOURAGED TO PUT AMERICA FIRST AND PUT ASIDE THEIR PERSONAL AGENDAS.
“Today [08/31/11] I asked for a joint session of Congress where I will lay out a clear plan to get Americans back to work. Next week, I will deliver the details of the plan and call on lawmakers to pass it.
Whether they will do the job they were elected to do is ultimately up to them.
But both you and I can pressure them to do the right thing. We can send the message that the American people are playing by the rules and meeting their responsibilities — and it’s time for our leaders in Congress to meet theirs.
And we must hold them accountable if they don’t.
So I’m asking you to stand with me in calling on Congress to step up and take action on jobs:
No matter how things go in the weeks and months ahead, this will be an important challenge for our organization.
It’s been a long time since Congress was focused on what the American people need them to be focused on.
I know that you’re frustrated by that. I am, too.
That’s why I’m putting forward a set of bipartisan proposals to help grow the economy and create jobs — that means strengthening our small businesses, giving needed breaks to middle-class families, while taking responsible steps to bring down our deficit.
I’m asking lawmakers to look past short-term politics and take action on that plan. But we’ve got to do this together.”
There are many Republicans who are proponents of “smaller government.” Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, toyed with seceding from our Union of 50 states. Yet, when disaster comes, we see Republican governors quickly ask the federal government for aid. Texas is now ablaze. I wonder how long it will take Gov. Perry (R-TX) to request money from President Obama (D-IL). Here’s a window on the fire:
When God decided to give us a pathway to the forgiveness of sin [Jesus Christ], he brought together Mary, a virgin, and Joseph, a carpenter, to be earthly parents of The Son Of God. Michele Bachmann says, when she met Marcus, their marriage was not about romance, either, but, was the result of their being given the same vision from God declaring that they should be married. According to Michele, God has been talking to her ever since. Watch Bachmann explain this in her own words and decide if indeed she is a fool. I mean, the ordinary kind.
BTW, what did sweet Nancy Pelosi do to Michele Bachmann…but not be led by her? Bachmann was in South Carolina a few days ago and having nothing substantial to say (no plans, programs or new law), Michele went on and on about
repealing every advance made by the Obama administration and she wants to erase Nancy Pelosi from the face of the earth.[SIC] I was disappointed that the good conservatives in South Carolina ate it up like shrimp and grits!
