Blah, blah, blah


No Representation

Americans are incresingly feeling that their voice isn't being heard in Washington and that they aren't being represented. Wasn't this one of the charges against George III?

Three-fourths of Americans (75%) in a recent FoxNews poll feel that they are not being represented - as if we needed that survey to tell us this. All we have to do is reflect on our own experiences.

Whenever I call my Senators - especially Bill Nelson of Gatoraid fame - I only get voice mail. They aren't interested in hearing from us. My congressional seat won't be filled again unitl Ed Lynch wins the special election on April 13th.

I clearly have little to no representation.

The current numbers on people opposing health care are at 55% and rising. However, since the majority of votes in Congress is all that matters, and not whether they represent the will of the people, we may get health care passed anyway.

Even if it passes on Sunday or whenever, it isn't a done deal yet.

Oh, if November 2nd would get here.

I am so looking forward to the November elections.  I feel a bloodbath coming on.

Kevin:  This is just amazing.  You mention a Fox News poll... and take it as fact.  Not only are you feeling unrepresented... when you are watching "Fox News"... you are not watching the news.  Fox News is an "entertainment channel."

Have a wonderful weekend !

Interesting that you call Fox News an "entertainment channel." I seem to recall those words coming from Obama and Gibbs. Now that Obama has graced the network, maybe their opinion has changed. :)

Fox News is an entertainment channel, I like the shows when they tell me the truth about what is happening in DC and how all the libby's are scrambling for votes right about now.

Go Fox Go!!!!
