Selling Congressional Seats on Ebay

April 25, 2009

No matter which way the wind blows, the United States Congress always profits financially. Why do “We the People”continue to pay salaries plus expenses to our “elected for life” public servants? Should not these little gods and godlings pay us for the privilege to enrich themselves while playacting at “public service?” Let’s auction off their mighty and powerful positions of Senator and Congressman to the highest bidder! Apparently, Governors already do it. Why shouldn’t we do it? After-all, we are still the “We” in “We the People,” aren’t we?

Pols Gone Wild!

The Congressional tentacles of our high and mighty “servants of the People,” our elected godlings, are tenaciously entwined into the shroud of our financial demise. The latest example is Senator Diane Feinstein who saw to it that her husband’s company was awarded the exclusive rights to sell the government’s foreclosed homes of “We the People.”Senator Feinstein saw to it that $25 billion of the American taxpayers’ bailout went to pay that nice little real estate commission to her own husband. Why not keep it all in the family? $25 Billion of the Bailout to the Feinsteins. After all, that’s what politicos have been trained to do – take care of “Number One.” And “Number One” ain’t no stinking “We the People,” you can bet. That’s okay – Senator Feinstein is not the only one to do it. Look at Congressman Barney Frank.

Congressman Barney Frank was willing to let the entire American financial system go down the tubes, see retirees lose their pensions, see millions of Americans lose their homes, so that he and his lover could live like the pompous godlings they really are. The Love Triangle the Destroyed a Nation’s Financial System.


Senate Seat For Sale on Ebay

December 9, 2008

It’s Barack Obama’s Senate Seat, For Sale on Ebay! Remember what Governor Rod Blagojevich himself said. “It’s a (bleeping) valuable thing. You just don’t give it away for nothing.”

Ebay is the fairest way to sell Obama’s Senate Seat! Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich can no longer sell it as he’s now in the slammer. Obama’s kids are not old enough to inherit it and Obama’s wife will be too busy acting as First Lady to take it. The rest of Obama’s relatives are not even American citizens, so cannot qualify to serve in the Senate without Congressional intervention. What else is there to do with the Illinois Senate Seat? Elections are just too risky and unpredictable, these days, even with A.C.O.R.N. and other community organizers doing their part.

It’s just a Chicago politics thing. Be grateful we don’t have that corrupt Chicago political machine running Washington.

Chris Matthews, soon to be “MAD” Senator from Pennsylvania?

Yes, hanging tenaciously onto the the long coattails of President-elect Barack Obama, MSNBC’s star television political reporter, Chris “Thrill Up His Leg” Matthews, plans to take over Senator Arlen Specter’s seat in Pennsylvania. Does Chris Matthews actually live in Pennsylvania, or does that matter anymore? Do Pennsylvania’s voters have any say in the matter, or does that matter anymore? Probably not it seems, when the Messiah is on your side. Chris Matthews, along with Minister Lewis Farrakhan, described their man Barack Obama as “The Messiah” during the presidential campaign.

He frequently commented favorably about Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election. On February 12, 2008, on MSNBC, he said: “The feeling most people get when they hear an Obama speech…I felt this thrill running up my leg.” He also said, Obama comes around, and this is the new testament.” On November 6, 2008, after the election, he stated on the MSNBC television program “Morning Joe,” that “I want to do everything I can to make this thing work…this new Presidency work.” When asked whether that was his job as a journalist, he stated “Yeah, that’s my job.”

On the April 14, 2008, edition of The Colbert Report, Matthews alluded to a possible run for the United States Senate from Pennsylvania. When directly questioned by Stephen Colbert about his intentions, he stated that there is a difference between celebrities and those who work for the people, and it’s a greater thing to work for the people. He also said that his boyhood dream was to be a senator. Four days later, on April 18, 2008, Matthews told Bill Maher that he has “made a commitment to covering politics, starting in 1987, and [he is] honoring that commitment, not getting involved in it.” The seat in question would be the one held by Sen. Arlen Specter, whose current term in the Senate ends in 2010. On November 28th, 2008, Fivethirtyeight.com and The Politico reported that Matthews has been in contact with senior staffers of Obama’s campaign about a possible run. (Wikipedia, 6 December 2008)
