Well, guess what folks, Our country is dam well in a mess isn't it? We have allowed this disgrace to happen. Why? We became lax and lazy. Too trusting in the elected officials to do their job. We allowed 537 elected officials to use their positions, power and personal connections to corrupt our basic form of government to the point that now it is rotten to the core, and now the deep state shadow government, left wing liberals, so called progressives, and believers in big brother government are tearing our country apart.
Where is the America of my generation? Why have WE allowed this to happen to her? Who is to blame for the state SHE is in? I ask these questions in hope that like minded citizens will take a moment to seriously think about the direction our country is going. To think about how we, as citizens are can and are going to do about the mess we are in.
I am just a small time blogger. One who has been out of the blogger loop for a long period of time. But now I feel that I must voice my personal concerns in hope that I can reach out to those who feel that big government has crossed the line in our everyday lives and needs to reined in.
This initial blog will be just the first of more to follow. It is meant to be a warning, to raise awareness and, hopefully create a ground swell of opposition, no matter how small, that will not only oppose this attempted power grab vocally, but be willing to oppose this movement by whatever means that is necessary to protect our rights as outlined in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Well people me thinks it is time we took some action against our so representatives in both houses of our government no matter which party they belong to. They all are a disgrace and should be served notice, Apparently they think of themselves as being a notch or two just below royalty since they can dine at OUR tables for free, do nothing to earn their pay and are tearing our REPUBLIC apart.
Please read 28th amendment Please Read, and forward. This will only take 1 minute to read! 28th Amendment, 35 States and Counting. It will take you less than a minute to read this. If you agree, please pass it on. It’s an idea whose time has come to deal with this self-serving situation: OUR PRESENT SITUATION ! Children of Congress members do not have to pay back their college student loans. Staffers of Congress family members are also exempt from having to pay back student loans. Members of Congress can retire at full pay after only one term. Members of Congress have exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed, under which ordinary citizens must live. For example, they are exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment. And as the latest example, they have exempted themselves from Healthcare Reform, in all of its aspects. We must not tolerate an elite class of such people, elected as public servants and then putting themselves above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent, or whatever. The self-serving must stop. Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon their states.It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention. If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days most people in The United States of America will have the message. Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the Citizens of the United States …” This is an idea that should be passed around, regardless of political party. Congressional Reform Act of 2017 1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they’re out of office. And, no more perks go with them. 2. Congress (past, present, & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose. 3. Congress must purchase their own retirement plan, just as ALL Americans do. 4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%. 5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people. 6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people (i.e. NO MORE INSIDER TRADING!!!). 7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women. Congress made all these contracts by and for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor and privledge NOT a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators should serve their term(s), then go home and go back to work … not get all kinds of freebies.
This is a sad day for me and many of my friends in Charleston County, South Carolina. Prior to my retirement I proudly served 24 years with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Officer with the majority of my time in Uniform Patrol.
Today I received word that the agency lost two fine men to gunfire while working an off-duty job at an apartment complex. They were responding to a disturbance in one of the apartments and when at the door a deranged individual opened fire with a long gun, firing through the door killing one deputy and critically wounding another.
I am asking each and every one of you to show your support for the agency and families of the two brave men who gave their life serving and protecting the citizens of Charleston County. You can do this by going up on the agency Face book page.
I hope that all who read this will now take a moment to say a prayer for those men, their families, and the men and women of Charleston County Sheriff’s Office who will continue to serve even in the aftermath of such a horrible event.
God Bless You All,
John T: aka Joseph Jones, Master Deputy, CCSO(ret).
