WHAT THE HELL AMERICA??

"American veiwers watched intently, and impatiently as the pretty colors flashed and the media exposed the inner workings of Brittany's obviously, deep character.

I was amazed, truly dumbfounded wondering how we as Americans have sank so low. To all Americans I have but one phrase that helps me throughout my day of constant dangers and ever present death around the corner, "WHO THE FUCK CARES!" Wow America, we have truly become a nation of self-absorbed retards. I wish the world was in a state where everytime I stopped to scratch my balls it captured national headlines, but I'm a realist and consiquently think realistically. This world has serious problems and it's time for America to start addressing them."


"I have now lost at least 20 IQ points watching you ramble on about the petty problems of millionares. You can also chalk up about 3,000 brain cells, more than i lost in about five years of drug abuse, to watching your disgusting display of world news.
Collapse )And I have yet to see a story about the Project for a New American Century, which relies on the military and corporate takeover of the middle-east oil reserves.

Congratulations, you keep the masses ignorant and uninformed. You are truly a system that is a product of social conditions. A sickness on society.....the symptoms being "ignorant American", the diagnosis.................."terminal.""

"If you have nothing to hide, he argued, what's the problem?"

uh...

There is a problem with that attitude.

"Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution"

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

House Resolution 847

As some of you know, Congress passed a resolution December 11th House
Resolution 847 a resolution recognizing the importance
of Christmas and the Christian faith.

I looked up the voting record of the local rep and found he voted "yes"
I emailed his office expressing outrage.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My email to Mike McNulty

Mr. McNulty,

I am horribly disappointed with your vote for passage of the above resolution.

This country may have have been founded by deists and other faiths but I feel that
you departed from your sworn duty to "defend and protect the Constitution"

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Recognizing the importance of Christmas and the Christian faith is very close to violating the above amendment.

I have voted for you in the past because you were willing to make a stand against the Republican party and the war in Iraq.

Please consider that when this country was founded Thomas Paine warned us against mixing religion and politics.
Also that your constituents on the whole may be Christian, but there are many who are not.

Please read his "Age of Reason" for it contains the following quote

"I moreover believe, that any system of religion that has anything
in it that shocks the mind of a child, cannot be a true system."

I am a Pagan by nature, Proto-Wiccan by form,, but my church is of my own mind.

This is not nor I hope it will ever be a "Christian Nation"

Signed

Michael McNulty
Congress of the United States of America.
21st District, New York


Dear Mr. _____________

I am in receipt of your communication regarding H. Res 847, a resolution recognizing the importance of Christmas and the Christian faith.

The resolution passed on the House on December 11th under suspension of the rules necessary 2/3rds vote. I voted "yes"

I appreciate your (sic) sharing your views, but I respectfully disagree with you. This resolution is of simple recognition and is not intended to place one religion or faith above another.

Thank you for contacting me. Please feel free to do so whenever there is a matter of interest or concern.

Sincerely (best wishes)
Signed
Michael R. McNulty
Member of Congress.

I still take issue with "is not intended to place one religion or faith above another."
What happened to the recognition of the rest of the faiths or religions?

Even worse, he is the same party as I am.
Even worse, I agree with his stance on the war in Iraq
Even worse, I voted for him

One bit of good news, he is on his last term as he is retiring.

So, my advise to those who still vote. Ask your candidate where they stand on separation of church and state.
