We’ve been watching you for a long time.  We have written you, made telephone calls and visited your offices.  You have ignored us.  You have failed us.  You have denigrated, ridiculed and insulted us.

The economy is failing.  You say the recession is over; for you, your lobbyists and large corporations maybe, but not for me and my neighbors.

Unemployment remains near 10% while underemployment is 17%.

You shoved down or throats, a burdensome healthcare legislation which will tax us all to high heaven, for starters and you strive to give illegal immigrants rights while treading upon the rights of the citizenry.

ENOUGH!  We will have none of it.  It’s time to pay the piper.  Party over.

Starting with the midterm elections, we, the people, are voting you out.

By the end of the election 2010 season, you will be unemployed.

BUT don’t despair (as if you care). All is not lost.  Listed below are employment recommendations and employment applications.

What will you do in 2010?


I have a problem.  Well, not really a problem so much as a dilemma.  Politics is important to me, but it’s such a broad category and encompasses so much, and there are a lot of important issues.  I go through my Reader and see that I’ve noted several different posts that I think I may like to blog about in the future.  I feel spread a little thin.  So many topics, so little time!  I feel like I need to pick just one or 2 and focus on those.  But for a political blog, specificity can often be a death-knell.  I don’t have time to put the hip-waders on for each subject.  How can I pick just a couple?  What’s my passion?  It depends on the day, I suppose.  It can be anything from education, AGW, immigration, taxes, 2nd Amendment, 1st Amendment, abortion, liberalism, racial issues, elections, Islam, conservatism, and on and on. 

Perhaps if I lumped all my favorite posts together onto a single page of links?  I’m thinking out loud here.  I’m not shooting to be the big centralized location for political bloggers, I just want to share my thoughts on different topics.  Sometimes I haven’t formed a solid opinion on something and am trying to sort it out.  To be sure, political opinion is something that is always in flux and evolving.  I know my core beliefs, but there are issues on which I go back and forth – like capital punishment. 

Whatever the case, information is key.  What I’ve learned – especially over the last year – is that bloggers too often get dismissed for being “nothing more than bloggers.”  Journalists boil down to being nothing more than bloggers with a better paycheck, often-times, and citizen journalists don’t get the credit they deserve.  I’ve seen bloggers dig up more information than “journalists” did, particularly in the case of Obama.  So, “journalist” doesn’t impress me. 

Scarborough questions journalistic integrity over Obama

Meteorologist Anthony Watts has far more credibility spread over his blog than a lot of “journalists” do who spread the “green gospel” far and wide with no scientific basis whatsoever.  He’s got a lot more credibility than James Hansen at GISS, who has been known to skew data just to advance his personal agenda.

Political stuff often depresses me.  I live in IL.  ‘Nuff said.  ;) 

I’m not sure what I’ll do about my indecision, but I did want to get it off my chest.  Maybe it’s just a matter of putting my own thoughts down, instead of being goaded by the blogs I read.  The big topic today is Blagojevich, but at the moment, I don’t really care about that.  He’s been the governor here for 6 years, and frankly, I’m more than a little sick of him.  The scandal now is, to me, par for the course and something I saw coming 6 years ago.  Meh.  As far as I’m concerned, “journalists” are way behind the curve on this one.  Where were they in 2002 when this guy was running for office, campaigning on “hope” and “change”?  Why, I guess they were at the same place they were at in 2008, when Obama was doing the same exact thing

I’ll get my thoughts sorted out, one way or another.  Having a blog helps in that regard.  Thanks for joining me on the journey.  🙂

Merry Fitzmas!

Saw this over on Backyard Conservative, and it’s just too good not to pass along!


John McHugh of Green Oaks writes (to the tune of "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen"):

Wake up, old Rod Blagojevich, the Feds just rang your bell.
Just step outside … and take a ride … no time for extra gel.
They heard the tape … there’s no mistake …
This state’s half-way to Hell.
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, save Illinois! Oh, tidings of comfort and joy.

How could you, Rod Blagojevich? This really has me beat.
It wasn’t nice … to put a price …. on that there Senate seat
The way you threatened Wrigley Field
How can the Cubs compete?
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, save Illinois! Oh, tidings of comfort and joy.

Get real there, Rod Blagojevich, you’re much too smart a man
Remember what this state has done to Otto, George and Dan.
If Durbin doesn’t write a note
You’ll join them in the can.
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, save Illinois! Oh, tidings of comfort and joy.

The Night Before Fitzmas

‘Twas the night before Fitzmas, all still at Rod’s house
While the Feds vetted transcripts: “That Blago’s a louse”.
A Senate seat’s empty, the temptation is great
To use the advantage and change Blago’s fate.

Rod’s plotting and scheming were thick in the air,
And Patti’s encouragement hung like a dare.
With Rezko convicted and Wyma on tape
Rod sensed a pressure he could not escape.

The dollar signs danced around in their heads,
With visions of firings for those who write ed’s.
And Patti in the kitchen and Rod in the den,
Had begun financial planning for 2010.

More rapid than eagles his ideas they came,
And he cursed and he shouted. His mind was aflame.
“Now, Tribune! Now, Cubbies! Now, Obama and pols!
This seat’s up for sale – for anyone…except moles.

“You’ll put up the money! You’ll pay, then you’ll play!
And meet me on my terms or I’ll snatch it away!”
After ranting and spinning, he twirled through the air.
(He then glanced at Patti, and asked ‘How’s my hair?’)

The Feds through the wire couldn’t believe what they’d heard.
Screwing sick kids for money – that’s just too absurd!
By selling the seat for the highest bid one would pay,
Rod fashioned a political form of e-Bay.

But Fitzgerald was ready – a warrant he swore,
The next morning, a phone call, a knock at the door.
“You’re joking!” Rod opined. “My conscience is clear!
They’ll love me again, from Troy to Kildeer!”

But the cuffs, they clicked soundly, and as he drove out of sight,
Illinoisians, they nodded – the Feds got it right.

IL politics, at its best!

Illinois politicians!  One in prison, one on the way, and one heading soon to a White House near you!! 

My Reader has been busy today and a majority of the posts coming in have been about the arrest of IL Governor Rod Blagojevich.  Illinoisans were dumb enough to elect this guy twice, but then, they’ve kept Daley in office for nearly 20 years now, along with all the other corrupt officials they keep putting back in office.  I saw an interesting bit of information on another blog today:

This makes for the fourth out of the last seven elected Illinois governors to be indicted since 1960 (Otto Kerner, Dan Walker, George Ryan, and Rod Blagojevich) … since 1972, 28 Chicago alderman have been convicted of crimes. If this number was extrapolated to the US House, it would be as if over 240 congressman had been indicted in the same period.
(The link at the Tribune does not include the last two Chicago alderman to be convicted, Arenda Troutman and "Fast Eddie" Vrdolyak.)

[link from Illinois Gov. Blagojevich, Chief of Staff, Arrested from The New Editor]

My husband made an interesting observation this afternoon.  “The last honest politician from Illinois was originally from Kentucky, and they ended up killing him.”  It certainly feels as though Lincoln was the last decent politician we had.  It just boggles the mind sometimes to think about how bad it is here, and that nothing ever gets done.  Yes, Blago was arrested today, but the only way things are really going to change around here is if the voters of this state decide once and for all to clean house, and vote out every single IL pol we have currently in office, both down in Springfield and Chicago.  Let’s face it, 10m of the 13m IL residents live in and around Chicago, so most of the crap is up here – we just send it down to Springfield.  Now, 2 governors in a row have been arrested.  When are the people of IL going to wake up and smell the corruption here? 

I was going to put in most of the links I’ve had come through my Reader today but decided against it.  You’ve probably seen enough today to fill you to puking about IL politics.  I will however, leave you with the words of John Kass, one of the few conservative columnists at the Chicago Tribune.  He’s worth the read.  Governor has one choice left: Sing?
