Brain Dead

Brain Dead
Kevin Bryant

An elderly man suffered a massive heart attack. The family drove wildly to get him to the emergency room. After what seemed like a very long wait, the ER Doctor appeared, wearing his scrubs and a long face. Sadly, he said, "I'm afraid he is brain-dead, but his heart is still beating." "Oh, Dear God," cried his wife, her hands clasped against her cheeks with shock!"We've never had a Democrat in the family before!"

I got this joke from my long time liberal almost to a fault sister. And yes, I do love her in spite of her political views. Though I must admit, she did NOT vote for Obama so there is some conservatism in there somewhere. Perhaps he just wasn’t sexy enough for her even though the press makes him out to be the sexiest candidate history to ever run for President.

Doesn’t this joke seem to fit a majority of those in congress today? Democrats will do anything to get Obama’s agenda passed as soon as possible so they can run on a premise that Obama’s agenda has not had time to take it’s full effect and make the conservatives look like they are spreading a doomsday type message to the voters. Truth be told, they know that in a few short months, the Obama honeymoon will be over and voters will be blaming him for the current state of the nation and the old “We Inherited This Mess” will no longer be able to be applied.

Personally, I think many have come to realize they backed the wrong democrat for President. Hillary would have been a better choice even though in reality, none of those running for the democratic nomination would have been a good choice but she at least would have made a better President that the one we have now. At least would have had Bill to go to for advice. Bill Clinton wasn’t a great President but he was far better than the clown we have in office now.

Looking at the current state of affairs, you would think all those democrats in congress are brain dead, but rest assured they are not. They know their time is limited to pay back all those financial backers they owe money and favors to. Just look at where the majority of the trillions they are spending is going. Many have accurately stated; Follow the money and there you will find the truth.

In a not too distant future, the run up to the 2010 elections will be in full swing and by then, it will be too late for the democrats to continue this practice of tax and spend and spend and tax. By the time the run up to the election really starts, the media will have no choice but to start airing the opposition’s side to the all this mess the congress and the White House has gotten us into since January 2007.

We, the people the politicians are supposed to be working for and accountable to must keep up the pressure on those in office. Those who have already announced that they do not intend to seek another term in office are pretty much lost causes, but anyone seeking re-election should be a target. Let them know what you think. Let them know what you, as their boss, demand and expect from them. Remind them that the represent you and right now they are an embarrassment to their respective states and the people they serve.

I have no problem reminding mine, are you reminding yours?

Follow-up: Some time after sending the letter I wrote to the Governor of Missouri that Al posted on this site, I finally got a response. It was the standard garbage letter written by some junior staffer that everyone usually gets from their elected official. PURE GARBAGE.
