No Little Johnny, We CAN'T Just Write a Check
Can someone PLEASE explain to Mr. Obama that you cannot write a check when there isn't money in the account? Can someone please explain to him that a check is a promisory note promising to forward funds THAT ARE AVAILABLE? Writing a promisory note without the funds to cover it is fraud which is why post-dating checks is illegal. Can someone also inform congress that they are there FOR THE PEOPLE and not for themselves? Their service, while VERY OVERLOOKED by the majority of Americans, is not overlooked by God and they will be held accountable. Please correct me if I'm wrong: congressmen earn around $180K per year and EVERY one of them retire millionaires. If they are doing so legally than in the name of service, shouldn't our congress people be sharing their keys of success to help our nation prosper financially. Our kid's kids will be paying those fraudulent promisory notes and would benefit greatly from the knowledge that our government "officials" clearly have (I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume their earnings are completely legal.... anyone with me?). But I'm going to go out on a limb and say that as long as we allow our government to abuse power, we as Americans deserve everything that's coming our way. Our children will most certainly suffer the sins of their fathers. As long as we do not rise and take our government back, anything we allow to happen is our own fault. We have a responsibility to stop injustice and collectively have the power to do it, but we don't. I often wonder how thousands and thousands of jews were abused, tortured and killed in concentration camps by a group making up maybe hundreds. I wonder why the same holds true in Africa today and held true when slavery in America was going strong. How does a group as large as these in history, with the power they possessed as the majority allow much smaller groups with much less power control and become all-powerful? I personally believe its the same thing that has and is occurring in America today. I just don't think that I'll ever understand it.
