The following arrived in my email today. I wish it weren't so funny.
“While driving home yesterday I was taken aback when I heard that baseball
great, Roger Clemens, is being indicted for lying to Congress and could go
to prison for 30 years. This email is by no means a defense of lying or a
defense of steroids but I found it absolutely incredible when I heard the
words lying to Congress. I actually found myself laughing. Was the
announcer talking about the same Congress that we have in Washington ?
I am having a difficult time wrapping my mind around the picture of Barney
Frank, Chris Dodd, Maxine Waters, Charlie Rangel, and countless others
whose names escape me now who are congressmen and women sitting in
judgment of someone who lied about taking steroids when they lie, deceive,
and steal from us every day. Are we talking about the same folks who don't
report all of their earnings, don't pay their taxes, or feather their own
nests or that of their spouses with government contracts, sitting in
judgment of Roger Clemens? Please clarify for me: are we talking about the
same people who by the sin of omission allow our borders to be a sieve and
wage war against the state of Arizona for trying to protect her citizens?
Surely I am mistaken that we're not talking about the likes of Nancy
Pelosi who wants to investigate 911 families or anyone else who is opposed
to the victory mosque on ground zero but will not investigate who is
funding the mosque.
Congress should be indicted by the American people! If we cannot throw
them in jail for 30 years then we need to throw them out of office forever
and push for term limits. Every day I get more incensed at the absolute
disdain our public servants have for us, the American people.”
Be sure to get out and vote.
