Your money

Looks like 2013 will be a lot like 2012 when it come to political lunacy. All the national media has been and still is aflutter with the "fiscal cliff."

I tell you what's terrorizing to me, the so-called mainstream media not doing their job anymore.

One thing they have not been reporting-- or maybe I've just missed it-- President Obama gave all federal workers a pay raise with the stroke of his mighty pen. For federal workers it was a thank you for supporting him in the campaign. But, your senators and congressmen also got raise.

About that I have heard not much in the Hurrumph, Hurrumph Outrage Department. Yeah, senators from Alaska-- God bless them-- but you've never even heard about them wanting to block the pay raises along with a few congressmen.

But the media is still fiscal cliffing. Has anyone done the fiscal cliff math? The house still has a say so, but the Senate deal is one dollar of pay cuts
per every 41 dollars of tax increases.

That Mitch McConnell, he drives a hard bargain, doesn't he?

So, the money continues to flow in our nation's capitol. Your money, by the way.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Now who was it that proposed cutting 5 federal departments that do nothing but waste our tax dollars ? Oh you know, the guy who promised to cut one trillion dollars from the budget his first year in office, the guy media ignored or ridiculed his campaign. Oh yeah, Ron Paul, the only American to run for president, the only candidate who offered hope to taxpaying, freedom-loving Americans. By now even the most ignorant American has learned that media is the enemy of our nation, ALL media.
