Hi, guys! I’m here to help you relive some old movies and songs. Now don’t think I’m a nut-job woman from Ohio who’s “off topic.” Please, give me a second and read on.
Nancy Pelosi. how many of you know that name? Two months ago, she called us revolutionists “simply revolting.” And she meant the adjective, not the verb. So a la The Beatles, we’re “gonna have a revolution, oh oh, ya know!”
First up. How many of you saw Cinderella Man, that great movie with Russell Crowe? Every day he went lookin’ for work during the depression. He stood in lines, hoping that a business would hire HIM for ONE DAY out of the HUNDREDS in line, so he could put food on his family’s table. Are we headed AGAIN after 70 years, for this same kind of situation? Millions are out of work. I’m makin’ up me own song now: “Waitin’ for the Stimulus to Work, oh oh, ya know.” Just how many jobs has this boondoggle created, anyhow? Swine odor in Iowa. Pelosi’s mole rat in CA. Studies of drinking habits of hookers in China. And HIV hookers in Thailand. And let’s not forget ACORN. Your taxpayer dollars hard at work.
The Cole Porter song, Night & Day. The Fed is printing money at record levels. Night & day! Heck, they printed $1.2 T in one day back in March! Does anyone know what $1T dollars is?? It’s a “1″ with 12 zeroes after it. It would take 95,000 years to count $1T using $1 dollar bills.
Apocalypse Now. I’m not a big fan of Marlon Brando personally, but he was a great actor. And that’s where we’re headed, folks. Apocalypse. Now. Not later. Stimulus. Omnibus. Bailouts. New credit card rules. Cap & trade. Help for troubled homeowners. Chrysler. Gm. and Terminator: Judgement Day. Do you want your hard-earned money to bail out the “Governator” and California? Pay for THEIR mistakes?
We have $11 T in debt now. Mr. Obama and Congress have spent more in 130 days than every president from George Washington to GW Bush. That’s not considering our Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security obligations. And much more to come. Let’s not forget healthcare reform. Maybe $2T more? You know DC. They’re just like contractors. Never come in on budget. So let’s say they come in OVER budget. Let’s give it a nice, round number like Tim Geithner says we can. May 50% over budget? $3T? Who knows.
Who knows one of the biggest movie grossers of all time? Titanic. The Kate Winslet and Leo DiCaprio one. We have our own version right here. The Sinking of the Titanic, USA. That’s where we’re headed, guys. We’ve hit an iceberg. The downfall of the biggest, most unsinkable ship in the history of the world. USS Titanic. If we don’t make some changes. Fast. But the theme song of that film was My Heart Will Go On. Ladies and gentlemen, the HEART of America is not Fox News. Or Rush. It’s certainly not MSNBC. It’s not Congress or Mr. Obama. The heart of America, folks is you, I and other grass-rooters rallying together. And together we will make sure that no matter what the heart of America will go on. We will still keep it beating!
Now one of my favorites. The Untouchables. With Kevin Costner and Sean Connery. It seems, my friends, these folks in DC think they are in the SEQUEL to this movie. That nothing can TOUCH them. Nothing can befall them! The White House now even has its own news network. Are we gonna let DC be “untouchable”? I don’t think so!
Let me draw your attention to the picture at the top of this page. The first three words say “We The People.” WE THE PEOPLE! That me, that’s you, that everyone else in this United States. We The People! This piece of paper belongs to us, and no one can take it away from us! But guys, please look at that piece of paper again. Because we might as well send it to Iran. Or Russia. Or China. Because frankly, THE FOLKS IN DC AREN’T USING IT ANYMORE! They’ve wadded it up, and thrown it in the trash like a piece of garbage! They ignored us; when we said “NO!” to the bailouts. They ignored us; when we said “NO!” to the Omnipork Bill. And they ignored us; when we said “NO!” to the Obama-Pelosi Theft Act of 2009. But Glenn Close, in Fatal Attraction, said to Michael Douglas: “I will NOT be IGNORED!” And neither will we, WE the People. Because us revolutionists, are simply revolting. The verb, not the adjective.
Location. Hollywood. Movie set. Jennifer Lopez, star. Threatened by a jerk of an ex-husband (no offense to any ex-husband readers here). She finally got her cajones, and said “ENOUGH!” She trained, and she took him out. He never knew what hit him. We’ve gotta get our cajones back, folks. Gotta learn to say “ENOUGH, DC!”
And last but not least. Network. Peter Finch, screaming out the window “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it anymore!”
So let’s send a clear message to DC. “Back off! You guys, work for us; remember!? We’re the ones who sign your paychecks, so start listenin’ to your bosses, or join the unemployment line. Cuz you’re gonna be fired!”
And I almost forgot. “Take that Constitution out of the trash can!”
Please join me and many other folks in DC on 9/12/09 for Tea Party at the Capitol!
