\"The peoples Work\"

Or
"Get back to doing the Peoples Work"
"Doing The Peoples Work" "Doing the Work of the People" ETc. Etc.Etc.

I'm SO Friggin tired of hearing our elected officials using this term or phrase.
Its just Mental Masturbation!!!!!

What they should say is that they need to get back to working the people. At least then they would be honest.

im willing to bet 95% of them have never had a job requiring manual labor or skilled labor and know nothing of middle class life. their grasp of reality for common folk is limited

personally, I don't care if any of my elected representatives ever worked a manual labor job as adults, but I do wish they all had experience in trying to manage a small business, or medium sized business. The expereince in business management would help them understand the plight of every day Americans having to deal with the bull shit regulations imposed by the federal government. Then, when their term is up they can take their merry asses back home (on their own dime), pick up where they were with their own typical civie life, pay for their own damned retirement and medical care......

Then, we would have a government of the people

mr surv.
Was that the orignal intent of our founders?
What Happened? Never mind I know.
When people realize they can vote them selves money then we are doomed.
I think there is a famous quote to that effect.

Or affect?

I hope we as Americans DEMAND that our elected representatives return to the original concept of a "representative republic" form of government. If not, in two or three generations we will be a two class society... the ruling class and the serfs

never even thought about that. excellent point though. their position insulates them from their own stupidity (long and short term). its complete BS that they get a retirement after one term and can serve indefinitely making their job resistant to economic woes that we all face

I recieved this as an email a few months ago,
This is how I feel about Politics

Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage,
hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it.

Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb

towards the banana.

As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all the other monkeys
with cold water. After a while another monkey makes the attempt

with same result, all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water.
Pretty soon when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other

monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put the cold water away. Remove one monkey from the cage and
replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and
wants to climb the stairs.

To his shock, all of the other monkeys attack him. After another
attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs
he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it
with a new one.

The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous
newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm.

Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a
fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the
stairs he is attacked.

Hang on.

Most of the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they
were not permitted to climb the stairs, nor why they are participating

in the beating of the newest monkey. After replacing all of the original

monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys have
ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever
again approaches the stairs to try for the banana.

Why not?

Because as far as they know, that is the way it has always been
done around here.

And that, my fellow monkeys, is how Congress operates...

And that is why we need to replace ALL of the original monkeys
this November.

We need to replace all the monkeys not just the originals and retrain.

I didn't watch. I fear being hypnotized by the antichrist.

I didn't watch either; I didn't want to be tempted to "Elvis" the TV.
