Are the American People Really Stupid?

“First you have to pass the bill before you can know what is in it”. We didn’t grab our rifles and head for Washington DC: And then came November 2012 and they denied the smoke coming out of the ears of the American Electric. Now comes November 2014 and we find out that the left; thought all along that the voting public was Stupid.

It is time “we the people” remind the political class we are aware of the politicians creed. “You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time”

Now I’ll add this; and I’m looking you square in the eye politicians of this country; fooling the people is not advised! November 2016 is coming

J F K said “ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country” and then he cheated on our first lady. Nixon said “I am not a crook” and resigned the presidency: And every manor of duplicity has been rot on the American people. Well! I for one am sick of it. If we have to have a come to Jesus moment with the American political class; then so be it!

Republicans it is your turn. We will see if you are up to the job. Maybe what we need from you is a constitutional amendment that says any legislation that is passed with lies to the electret is void. Of course that would effectively end the I R S would it not? Yah, that promise; that it would only be 3% and only affect the rich might scuttle that ship.

A little advice and then I’ll shut up and let someone else comment on what I have said.

When you are in your respective caucuses and someone says “this or that will not fly with the American people. Drop it: don’t say but we can make FOOLS OUT OF THEM in this way or that. Just punch the offender in the right eye and throw it out the door so the people of it’s State can deal with it in the proper manor, and YES I meant ”IT.”

Sometimes you just have to beat the FOOL out of people.

A snippet from My Book; A View From The Street/ River City Policing; coming out this winter
A day in the life of The Corporal

I was minding my own business on a warm fall day. Our Corporal had been dispatched to the scene of a car-deer encounter. The Corporal was one of those tender-hearted souls who had a hard time with gun play. He had been involved early in his career in a shootout with a robbery suspect in which his training officer was wounded.

After I cleared a call, the Corporal called me to assist him. I pulled up and the conversation went like this.

“Hi Knocker, I have situation here. There is this deer, and it has been hit by a car, and there is no animal control unit on duty now, and I was thinking you’re good at this sort of thing. I just can’t do it.” “What am I good at?” I asked. “Well you know the deer is hurt? It keeps looking at me. I just can’t do it, do you mind?”

I know you’re thinking Officer Knocker was screwing with the Corporal, and you would be right. I was playing stupid with him, letting him dangle. He was a corporal and could order me to shoot the deer, but he could not bring himself to shoot the deer or to order me to do it. I am of the belief that if you are confronted with a situation like this and you don’t take the opportunity to screw with the “do the minimum” office poge, you are just not being reasonable.

You have to have fun with this job or drink heavily. I chose fun. I kept obfuscating until he walked me over to the deer. I looked at it and said,” Yeah, you should just shoot it when there are no cars in view.” “Well a I well I can’t a would you mind a.” “Oh! Do you want me to shoot the thing?” I asked. “Well, yeah!” came the somewhat annoyed response. “Oh, ok.” I said.

All the pent up tension that the Corporal was experiencing was released at that moment.

I pulled my weapon and fired one round hitting the deer between the eyes and re-holstered. The Corporal jumped straight up in the air and yelled, Dang it, Knocker! You were supposed to wait till I was ready.” All the tension that was previously released was back. “You can’t do this to me Knocker.” “Why not? Isn’t that why they pay you all that extra money? Do you want me to leave a note for animal control, or do you think you could do that? Yah I can do that. Oh I’ll need around to replace the one I fired? Here take one of mine says the corporal. Gee did you have to do that he asked? Well I’m off. See you later I said

Some people are cut out to be cops and some are cut out to be insurance agents. We had a lot of insurance agents and not enough Real cops. Just something I like to muse about.
