Drain Sharks: they do exist.

I saw something posted to the Book of Face earlier today, and it made me angry. Later this evening, while bringing the Yank dinner at work – I saw something completely different. They both struck me – and made me think. The way I look at life – it reminds me of a contrast filter… sometimes I see in normal colors, other times the vibrant hues, and occasionally in black and white.

It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of politics – OR politicians. And I hate MSNBC as much as FOX. And obviously with N being a Marine, and with less than 1% of the US population carrying 100% of the load by serving in the military – well, sometimes I get frustrated. And I can’t help but share my perspective.

Unexplainable, InexcusableNo one has been able to explain to me why young men… and women serve in the U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay. While Politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not make any sense.On Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?

35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on.

This is an idea that we should address.

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform… in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

If each person that receives this will post it on their wall, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message.. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ..”

Now, what are you going to do about it? Read and delete, or work for reform? Share on the wall of EVERY congressman, representative, governor, the white house!!!!! Pass it around!!! Make calls, send fax’s and email’s……………

While in the female head at N’s squadron, I saw this:

So there you have it – pool sharks DO exist. And I’m pretty certain – nay, I know with absolute certainty – Drain Sharks (the two legged kind) are real.

At the end of the day, I remind myself of the following:

…And that not all Drain Sharks are elected political officials. They – and their agenda – are all around.
