This past week, the Republicans in the California legislature, "ousted" the Republican House Leader. Why, you say, would those loyal Republicans do such a thing??? Well, seems the House leader was preparing to vote for the Governor's budget in an effort to save California from total financial collapse. It just doesn't pay to get out of bed some mornings.
Then there was one of the slickest 'bloodless coup " that I have ever had the pleasure of hearing about. Tenn. Republicans were taken by surprise when, after winning the legislature for the first time since the Civil War, Tn. Republicans were all prepared to elect their new House Leader and begin their assault on womeins rights, .......... But they got caught with their pants down...they had not a clue what was brewing on the other side of the isle, and then it was over and "slack jawed and stunned, previously arrogant and posturing Republicans knew they had been had. The Dems had recruited a Rep legislator to be their nominee. His name was placed in nomination and lo and behold, he won!!!
Now, the new Speaker of the House is no longer a Republican in good standing! But he is a gift to all clear thinking folks of the 21st Century.
The Right-wingers were all set up to begin dismantling women's rights, expand gun rights, destroy government programs, and give more tax breaks to the rich. I really do admire the actions of the Tn. Democratic Party...in a time when it is almost impossible to keep anything "below the radar", somehow they managed to meet, discuss, and plan their move to keep the Tn legislature out of the hands of extremists and in the hands of a more reasonable group. Would I have been so admiring if it had been the other way around? I still would have admired the plan and it implementation but I am sure I would not have been crazy about the outcome(just for the sake of disclosure, if you need any).
WE OWE SOME GREAT BIG THANKS TO THE UNIVERSE...THANKS FOR HELPING US STAY IN THE 21ST CENTURY.
So, if California can do it, if Tn can do it, why can't Washington do it and find and elect new Democratic leaders in the Congress? Nancy Pelosi decided for the American people that impeachment was off the table...maybe because her secrets would also have been revealed. Dianne Finestein thought our new president should have checked with her before appointing his cabinet members, then turned around and publicly blurted out classified information regarding our bases in Pakistan. And Harry Reid, yes, poor old Harry. He doesn't work for the president, he works with him. Wonder if he has any memory for whom he does work? THEY ARE ALL TOO OLD, THEY HAVE BEEN THERE TOO LONG AND THEY, TOO, HAVE BEEN CORRUPTED BY THE SYSTEM.
Yes, I realize we would have to "tear it from their cold, dead hands", but a Patriot can dream. A Patriot can imagine a day when government works for all people. A Patriot can forsee a time when grassroot's movements have great and sustaining power around the world. A Patriot will hold these dreams and high ideas up to the greatest of scrutiny and will not find them wanting.
