A recent column in a car magazine really got us
thinking. It was about how, in the opinion of
the editor, that we hot roddders had gotten soft.
The reason the editor thought this way was simple;
in the beginning a hot rod was made to be fast.
Now many of us have to have leather upholstry,
power steering, power disc brakes, power windows,
enough bling to make a fashion statement, and
We feel this also applies to how we handle our
politicians. We have a president who is
living his rainbow-colored, sugar-free cotton
candy flavored, rose scented agenda of change.
He does this while claiming to have inheirited
the deficit problems his agenda has caused.
We have a Congress and House of Representatives
who allow him to do so why claiming that nothing
can be done to rectify the situation. We get the
feeling that they feel have been elected to do what
they wish and not what we, the people, want. They
also don’t seem to care about what is best for
While all this is happening, we the people,
take sides and argue about climate change,
green power, gay marriage, union rights,
high gas prices, and do nothing.
We heard our president gave another speech
and we haven’t heard anyone call him a liar
yet. Did he actually say, “we cannot spend
more money than we take in”? Gimme strength.
As sometimes happens, we may a simple
solution. When Just Eliminate Lies (JEL) was
first introduced to inform us about the
evil of smoking, people quit smoking. Now
we feel it has no purpose, and since our
government doesn’t end non-functioning
programs, we suggest that JEL simply be
changed to monitor truth in government.
It would keep the program busy, change the
landscape of political campaigns, and just
might spawn a reality TV show.
