    The time has come for the blind to see. Its time to admit what political field refuses to do. It is to begin impeachment proceedings. Why not face it. Things has gone to far. Call your congressman, senators. At least they will know how you feel. Wild Bill

    The great unwashed masses don't have a clue.

    Stossel interviewed some who didn't know what the National debt was.

    Conservatives will have a tough time unless a charismatic leader comes forth who can energize the electorate with digestible truth.

    Buuut.....The silver lining on this cloud is watching Obama and his stumblef*ck presssecretary try and talk their way out of responsibility.

    It's better than Laurel and Hardy.

    This economy stuff has been hard on Barry. It's affecting his golf game and fund raisers. Time to go to Martha's Vineyard and hobknob with the Kennedys.

    The economy can wait till he gets back.

    A very interesting column.. COMPLETELY NEUTRAL
    Be sure to Read the Poem at the end.

    Charley Reese's final column for the Orlando Sentinel...
    He has been a journalist for 49 years.
    He is retiring and this is HIS LAST COLUMN.

    Be sure to read the Tax List at the end.

    This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is
    completely neutral, neither anti-republican or democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired
    reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining
    clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the
    judgments made that impact each one of us every day. It's a short but good read.
    Worth the time. Worth remembering!

    545 vs. 300,000,000 People
    -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-picking thing. 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 now? He is the leader of the majority party.
    He 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 cannot 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 and Afghanistan it's because they want them
    in Iraq and Afghanistan ...

    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 Orlando Sentinel 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 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 anyway!

    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.

    Accounts Receivable Tax
    Building Permit Tax
    CDL license Tax
    Cigarette Tax
    Corporate Income Tax
    Dog License Tax
    Excise Taxes
    Federal Income Tax
    Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA)
    Fishing License Tax
    Food License Tax
    Fuel Permit Tax
    Gasoline Tax (currently 44.75 cents per gallon)
    Gross Receipts Tax
    Hunting License Tax
    Inheritance Tax
    Inventory Tax
    IRS Interest Charges IRS Penalties (tax on top of tax)
    Liquor Tax
    Luxury Taxes
    Marriage License Tax
    Medicare Tax
    Personal Property Tax
    Property Tax
    Real Estate Tax
    Service Charge Tax
    Social Security Tax
    Road Usage Tax
    Recreational Vehicle Tax
    Sales Tax
    School Tax
    State Income Tax
    State Unemployment Tax (SUTA)
    Telephone Federal Excise Tax
    Telephone Federal Universal Service Fee Tax
    Telephone Federal, State and Local Surcharge Taxes
    Telephone Minimum Usage Surcharge Tax
    Telephone Recurring and Nonrecurring Charges Tax
    Telephone State and Local Tax
    Telephone Usage Charge Tax
    Utility Taxes
    Vehicle License Registration Tax
    Vehicle Sales Tax
    Watercraft Registration Tax
    Well Permit Tax
    Workers Compensation Tax


    STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
    Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & 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, if agreed, stayed home to raise the kids.

    What in the heck happened? Can you spell 'politicians?'

    I hope this goes around THE USA at least 545 times!!! YOU can help it get there!!!

    GO AHEAD. . . BE AN AMERICAN!!!

    Impeachment would be nice but it cannot happen. I am truely surprised however that there has been no assasination attempt. He is a prime candidate. He is silently converting this country to a Muslim majority

    He took an oath to uphold the Constitution and he is not doing that. He has done a few unconstitutional things that he should not have. Is that not an impeachable offense? The Congress is too fearful of repercussions from an action like that. Bulge.

    You forgot the Senate, Rick!

    But that would be a "Good" start!!

    Just seen where a federal Judge has destroyed Billions of dollars of improvements on the PNW Hydro dam systems!

    "As you may have heard, Judge James Redden of the Federal District Court recently jeopardized the future of our region's hydroelectric dams by ruling that the federal government's current program to strike a balance between the Northwest dams and the protection of our local salmon – known as the "Biological Opinion" – violates the Endangered Species Act."

    From my congress rep.

    We need to find our how to get rid of "Activist" judges and politicians! The latter can be voted out if the public is "informed", but how do you disbar a judge????????

    Since Congress is the one who does the impeachment hearings, it would be like the pot calling the kettle black. Congress is just as screwed up as he is.

    The government needs to be replaced and taken to court for screwing and stealing from the taxpayer. All we have been given is lip service for decades.

    If Geoge W. Bush didn't need to be impeached, no president could possibly need to be impeached. Anything goes.
