The unemployed hockey mom with the magical keyboard strikes fear in the hearts of this Administration.
But in the end, this is not about Palin. This is about the people being pissed off at Washington. Who do we have? A media that has yet to check out the record $500 million in large campaign donations and its possible relationship to that quick, $787 billion payoff, er, stimulus package? A Republican Party that screwed up for two elections in a row?
Who stands for the 47% of America that refused to go along to get along and voted for someone else?If it is Palin, then let it be Palin. And if that makes us all a bunch of stupid, gun-clinging rednecks, well, so be it then. The Ivy League sent us this guy. Maybe the University of Idaho can send us someone better.Daria DiGiovannicontinue reading
To the Members of the U.S. House & U.S. Senate,
I am writing to you, the employees of the People of the United States of America, to remind you of your jobs and your place in our republic. You are elected by the citizens of your districts and states to represent them in the federal government. You are expected to fulfill your duties, which include drafting and voting on legislation that conforms to the enumerated powers granted to the federal government by the People through the United States Constitution. We the People also expect you to read and understand that legislation before you vote on it! In addition, we expect you to be available to your constituents, the People you represent, to hear and listen to what we say.
We also expect you to respect the rights and the sovereignty of the several States of the United States of America, in which we live. The Tenth Amendment was passed because several of the States would not sign the Constitution and join the United States without assurances that their rights and sovereignty would be respected and remain intact.
We do NOT want you to enact legislation that you know is in direct opposition to the wishes of the American People or which infringes on our rights or the rights of the States. You, despite what you may believe, do NOT know better than your constituents. We want to remind you that you don’t have any right to your elected positions in Congress. You serve at our pleasure, and we are NOT pleased.
The power of the Federal Government and your authority to pass laws, comes from the People. You do not have any right to tell us how to live our everyday lives. You do not have any right to enact laws designed to change our behavior, even if you believe it’s our best interests. We are not children and you are not our parents. If any of you have actually read the U.S. Constitution (and I say if because it’s obvious that you don’t read the legislation that you so arrogantly vote on), then you should be aware that it’s preamble starts with the phrase, “We the People of the United States of America…” This is not by accident or coincidence. The Founding Fathers were leery of a powerful central government and deliberately crafted the Constitution to limit its powers and yours.
So, we the People want to remind you that we elected you and sent you to Washington, D.C. to represent us and we can bring you home. In affect we can fire you, if you fail to live up to our expectations or fulfill your responsibilities. Despite whatever amount of money you may raise, what political alliances you may form or what intimidation you may use, the power in this republic still resides with us. If you continue to pass laws designed to control our money, our businesses, our behavior and our day-to-day lives we the People will replace you with others that will do the job we sent you to do.
We the People of the United States of America are your employers. You the members of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate are our employees. It would be best that you keep this fact in mind when you are scoffing at the idea of reading a bill before you vote on it, thinking of raising our taxes or enacting laws that you know we don’t want you to pass.
You should consider this letter a prelude to a pink slip. If you don’t start to execute your duties as prescribed in the Constitution and as you know we want you to, then we the People will simply have to vote you out of office and elect citizens that will actually represent us and our wishes.

I searched the local newspapers this morning looking for any mention of the complaint filed by U.S. Naval Commander Jeffrey Gordon against the Miami Herald’s military reporter, Carol Rosenberg, “for abusive and degrading comments of an explicitly sexual nature made against me and others while at Guantanamo and Andrews Air Force Base.”
Nothing, not a single story or word was written about this in any of our local mainstream newspapers.
Gordon, in a three-page letter, accuses Rosenberg of a “pattern of sustained abuse” that includes, but is not limited to, sexual harassment.
Gordon quotes Rosenberg as saying: “Have you ever had a red hot poker shoved up your $%^? Have you ever had a broomstick shoved up your#@%? . . . How would you know how it feels if it never happened to you? Admit it, you liked it.”
According to Gordon, Rosenberg “routinely labeled my colleagues in the Office of the Secretary of Defense and Justice Department, as well as her peers in the press, as ‘bitches,’ ‘stupid,’ ‘lazy,’ ‘incompetent,’ ‘Nazis,’ ‘Saddam Hussein-like,’ etc.”
The Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz writes about Gordon’s letter here and, like all good media apologists on the left, shrugs it off as, “ the sometimes bruising battles between journalists, who sometimes must scratch and claw for information, and government officials, who attempt just as tenaciously to control information provided to news organizations.”
Media Bistro has a copy of the letter posted, and it is important that everyone read it. If any of these allegations are true, then every patriotic American in the country should bombard the Miami Herald and their corporate parent, The McClatchy Co., with letters, e-mails, faxes and phone calls demanding Rosenberg get fired.
Any one of these purported remarks would be grounds for immediate dismissal by any corporation in the country. McClatchy and the Miami Herald need to hold their employees to the same standards of behavior the rest of us have to abide by.
This isn’t about Democrat or Republican. This is about people who respect our military and act like professionals, and the people who do not.
I know a lot of veterans read my blog, and dear veterans, if you’re as angry as I am about this, contact your local veterans groups and demand that they take action on behalf of all of the brave men and women who protect our freedom.
Do not let the defenders of our freedom suffer abuse from any of the military-hating, lying lumps of leftist horse manure masquerading as journalists.
The left-wing press would like to ignore this story.
Don’t let them do it. Take action, and take it now.
