Washington Reasoning

Posted Friday, September 30, 2011, at 3:12 PM

Are you as tired as I am of seeing the same old political hacks saying the same old things?

Are they looking for answers for the people such as drastically curbing federal spending or just seeking re-election to save their own jobs...which they aren't doing very well?

I'm fed up with these talking heads telling us we can spend our way out of debt. It just doesn't work that way.

The American people have been hurt far too much by these people promoting wars supposedly to protect the rights of people who have been fighting among themselves forever and will be doing the same once our military leaves. How many in Washington D.C. are interested in protecting any American's rights except their own?

Will they ever realize we can see they work too hard to get the votes of people living here, many of them illegally, to get their votes of their group in the 2012 elections?

How many of them ever care?

Your title is an oxymoron.

You are right Bo!

Here is why!

Washington, DC is NOT even one of the 50 States.

Washington, DC is a Territory that was cut out of American Soil for the seat of the Government. It is 10 miles square according to the US Constitution in Article I,Section 8, Clause 17.

Washington, DC is the Play Ground of our Government. The US or USA or US Government has exclusive jurisdiction over this territory and everyone living in it.

Congress can make ANY LAWS to govern these District of Columbia Citizens and the laws don't have to be in compliance with the US Constitution.

Citizens living in Washington, DC are under its exclusive jurisdiction because they live on Federal Land.

The Federal Government tries to force those laws on the Sovereign Citizens of the 50 states also, in hopes we won't know they are not Authorized to do so. They use scare tactics to enforce their laws.


If you listen to the stupidity of the economists who are speaking today, you will hear them speak about the country going into a recession?

Where have these economists been? We have never come out of the double recession yet (Triple recession in my opinion).

They are saying we are going into another recession and it is going to be worse.

Some of you may remember, but I already predicted that we would NEVER RECOVER from this recession. It is starting to look like I may have been right.

The candidates are doing nothing but fighting each other. How can they come together and beat king Obama if they can't speak nice about each other.

I don't even watch the news any more. It is just the opinions on the hosts of the news stations, kind of like a reality show.

As for all the wars and conflicts we get into is just plain wrong. That is what the United Nations was created for. The Policeman of the world. They can't even wipe their ask without the United States giving them money and war machines.

America needs to wake up.

Japan was asked why they didn't come on over to America and invade us after the attack on Pearl Harbor because our troops were all fighting in Germany. They could have invaded the US and done a lot of damage.

Their reply was... they knew every American had guns and knew how to use them. They knew (even when the Americans didn't) that they would have been killed trying to invade this country.

A fact is... all the hunters put together in just 4 northern states would be a larger Army than any known Army in the world.

There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin ... 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan's 700,000 hunters, then

Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.

And that doesn't include all the other home owners with guns.

Does everyone see why king Obama and Hillary Clinton want to United Nations to ban guns in America?
