What she fears most

July 6, 2013

I received an E- mail the other day I found to be most interesting; it was a women testifying before some committee and she said that she was not afraid of the crook at her door robbing her, because......

It's not nice to call your neighbors "local buffoons"! Besides, it's downright short-sighted, since you never know when you may need something from one of the "local buffoons"!

Spike, who's easier to hold accountable for use of tax money, locals who you see every day, know as neighbors and can easily contact, or those nameless, faceless bureaucrats in DC (District of Corruption) who you don't know, never see and who won't even return your calls when you have a question?

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah ...Then ends with a plea to only elect MEN of moral character to public office.

I could explain that, when used in this manner, MEN has no gender component. We, collectively, are MANKIND, or MAN, as in HUMANITY or HUMANS. "Peace on earth, goodwill toward men" was not about gender, but in a broader sense, HUMANITY.

Sorry, Washington is admittedly bad with money but still trust them further than the local buffoons or Harrisburg.

They call this 'misplaced trust' for a reason!!

That is not why we would have the problem GysgtUSMC. You have the problem. Imposing term limits will not solve the problem. You can not stop people from making a career in politics.

We could pay more income tax if the city and school district wasn't constantly increasing taxes.

We could pay more local taxes, in fact we'd pay ONBLY local taxes if the tax structure was correct. Top down has proven to be ineffective, so let's pay all personal taxes to our locality, whether city or township, which pays to the county, which pays to the state, which pays to the federal. It would certainly make the 'higher' levels of government more efficient, don't you think? We absolutely don't need such a duplicative, enormous and overreaching federal government!

"That is true, but those same polls also show that most people are happy with the job that THEIR Congressperson is doing."

LOL That is very true. Their member of Congress is not the problem it is yours.

Exactly Mr. Reeder and as long as there is that mentality from the people, you will continue to have these career politicians polluting our system.

There were no term limits on the President until the death of Roosevelt.

A Supreme Court Justice is a lifetime appointment.

The Constitution gives the power to the people to elect their representatives to the House, the Senate came later through an amendment. Elected officials get voted out all the time. Gerrymandering lets elected officials keep their elected offices longer. Gerrymandering lets political parties keep majority hold in legislative bodies.

Term limits will not solve the problem you site. You only take more away from the voters.

The American people consistently disapprove of the job congress is doing, the same congress we put in office. So I ask, are we doing a good job weeding out these career politicians and bringing change to Congress. I think not. We approve term limits for our president who we can also vote out, but not for our representatives who have just as much power if not more in my opinion.

We've hear this "prediction", ALMOST as often as the number o' times we've been told the World is about to "end".

Hey Shammy - this isn't a global warming thread.

It starts with an 'e-mail' about women testifying and then only repeats what 'she' said. Then the fears the government not criminals. Then ends with a plea to only elect MEN of moral character to public office.

Then the right has the audacity to label liberals as sheeple.

More informed and enthusiastic voters are the answer, not term limits, in my opinion.

Actually Mr. Shaman, I did say BOTH parties.Your current frontman is a great example.Like you, he is unable to think for himself and can only repeat what he is told to say by his party puppeteers.

Here we go again. Mr. Shaman you are a prime example of why nothing gets done on Capitol Hill. The right does this, the left is superior. They have this country exactly where they want them. Towing the party line and cheer leading their cause without an ounce of thinking for themselves. Babble on Mr. Shaman, you make the rest in your club look like servants to the masters in Washington.

We Dems call them "throw-away" candidates (See: Dole, McCain, Romney), and Republicans do a GREAT job of producing them!!
