Protests, Tshirts and the American Way

[kc_background_pac_1_heading_12]Congress is Missing
in Action,
Where are our Leaders…[/kc_background_pac_1_heading_12]

The United States is on the brink of financial ruin, the dollar is worth less than it was in 2001, more than 24 Million Americans are unable or unwilling to find a job.

We live in a nation where on average there are more murders in our largest cities, than there are on the battlefield in foreign wars.

We are facing the most difficult social and financial situations this nation has ever faced and the news story below, is what congress thinks is the most important thing.

America are you not proud? 

Where have we found our courage?

Perhaps it is time to begin to Recall Senators, Congressman who will not do their duty as prescribed by the
constitution of these United States of America.

Voters, what were you thinking in when you put people like Harry Reid who has betrayed his own party (allegedly) and the people of the United States.

I find it appalling disgusting and evil what the congress thinks is the way to deal with our problems is to make it a felony to protest after allowing the occupy wall-street movement to do what ever they wanted to do but now they want to make it a felony to wear a T shirt that may offend someone?

=====================================

The following News story was sent to us by email, we are providing coverage of this news story included below, the source is Watchdog.net

I find it not only Amazing that congress is so far gone that they are unable to see what is happening in our own nation because allegedly they are so busy amassing wealth that the rest of us will never have the opportunity to achieve, but they want to oppress and to create a nation of slaves.

Imagine an America in which the government can deny protest in any public space it deems fit. Where wearing a dissenting shirt around an elected official could be construed as a felony. Where First-Amendment protections become privileges subjectively doled out by the state. Sadly, that America is pretty much here.

In March, Congress passed HR 347, a bill that limits Americans’ ability to protest in public and on government grounds. Mainstream media didn’t raise peep, but now there’s finally some anger building. The bill, passed almost unanimously, makes it a federal offense punishable by up to ten years in prison to “knowingly” protest in the vicinity of the Secret Service–that is anywhere the Secret Service “is or will be temporarily visiting.”

It also makes many public events impervious to lawful protest. Any “National Security Special Event” (NSSE) requires Secret Service protection. NSSE-designated events have proliferated since 9/11 to include Super Bowls, concerts, campaign events, and now any public event that Very Important People want protest-free.

Most dangerously, it criminalizes protest. Under the bill, “disorderly or disruptive conduct” or activities that “impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions” could warrant felony charges. What constitutes such “disruptive conduct” rests in the eye of the beholder–or the eye of Eric Holder. To put it plainly: the government can decide where and when free speech is allowed and severely prosecute any “disruptive” activity, while we’re confined to “free speech zones.” We can help fix it, however! Join our petition below to protect our speech rights!

PETITION TO CONGRESS: We treasure our first amendment rights of free speech and public assembly! HR 347 limits valid arenas of peaceful public protest, and broadens the government’s ability to curtail civil liberties. We demand that Congress amend the bill to provide clearer language as to what constitutes “disruptions”; to allow for reasonable, peaceful protest at NSSEs and around Secret Service; and to ensure that no peaceful protest can ever be deemed a felony.

Betrayed by speaker John Boehner

The rumor mill was in full force this morning when talk show host, Rush Limbaugh, broke news that John Boehner the speaker of the house would have a Special “deal” to pitch which would likely be a comprimise that would destroy the hopes of the republicians to regain the white house in 2012.

It is disturbing to see that we could be looking at the end of America as we know it today, which for some people is what they want, they have this idea that the rich are too rich and the poor are too poor, they might be right.

The problem is that this type of thinking has never proved profitable for the poor or the rich.

So will  John Boehner do the right thing and stand up for the American people or will he allegedly cry about how unfair it all is, the issue here is simple.

Will we turn from the brink of diaster, or will we embrace the failed economic agenda of the last three years?

The dollar is sitting on a wire, and what the speaker of the house does in the morning will determine what happens next.

Will we face the collaspe of the stock market?

Will the dollar drop to an all time low because the republicians are unfit for office?

Will we watch as millions of Americans have to beg for food because of the failed politics of the last three years.

Will we do the right thing or will we fail America?

super congress unconstitutional

Amazing news folks, it appears that not only have the American people been betrayed, but our elected leaders apparently are prepared to sacrifice the constitution in order to do what they want to do.  

Not what the people want to do, but what they want to do.

They are proposing that they create what would amount to a gang of 12, Amazing, that we have a speaker, or allegedly (weeper of the house) that would even consider this, it is not only wrong but it is illegal.  They want to take over by force the congress and by pass the will of the American people.

If you think this is not a problem think again, if this is done we must vote them all out of office, because it is wrong to do this and it is illegal, it is morally wrong, it is ethically wrong and it is criminally wrong to betray the people in this way.

William Pitt made it clear,

"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves." – William Pitt

 

We cannot afford to do what is wrong for the wrong reasons, when we are on the brink of our own financial ruin, what are they smoking up there on capitol hill, I would say that I want some, but you know what if it makes you this stupid, it is something that we cannot afford to even try out, because then you would have every jumping off the cliff of insanity.

This is nothing as simple as a process or a committee, it is the dismantling of the constitution and it must not be allowed call your congress person call your senator, this must not be allowed to happen because it bypasses the constitution and the will of the people, it must not be allowed to proceed.

There are those that may argue about how this is just a process and not a change in how the government works, but that is just not accurate, it is really simple, any change in the way that the constitution defines our congress is not constitutional simple as that, you cannot substitute a dictatorial legislative body in place of the will of the people.
