state of union

What manner of slave ship is this?

It cannot be America! In America we have a Constitution that limits the power and intrusion of the federal government in our lives. In America, the avaricious, bipedal morons in Washington would never confiscate taxpaying citizens’ money to bail out bankrupt companies, nor could they leave our borders unguarded and open to invasion from all the world, for people to take American jobs or become dependents of those of us who produce the vital commerce and goods once sought by the world.

Our Constitution would never allow the government to exploit a man’s wealth, with a death tax of nearly 50 percent. It just is not their money. It is beyond all reason that America would allow an obnoxious, vastly expensive and obvious failure, designed as health care reform, to intrude on and bankrupt our country.

Barletta’s path

leads to ruin

U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta makes an attempt to present himself as a moderate Republican in the Oct. 3 edition of the (Scranton) Times-Tribune newspaper; he is one who would gladly vote to end the government shutdown.

His spokesman, Tim Murtaugh, states: “The congressman has said from the very beginning if it came to the floor of the House, he would vote for a clean (continuing resolution) … He has never supported closing the government down and he believes that the best venue to fight over Obamacare is the debt ceiling.”

He believes that the best venue to fight over Obamacare is the debt ceiling! Are we missing something here?

For students of Scripture, it is akin to getting through a plague only to tempt something much worse; Barletta is inviting an apocalypse.
