Open letter to Barbara Boxer
Original post made by Sarina, Country Fair, on Jul 24, 2009
You were so right on when you scolded the general on TV for using the term,
"ma'am," instead of "Senator." After all, in the military, "ma'am" is a term of
respect when addressing a female of superior rank or position.
The general was totally wrong. You are not a person of superior rank or
position. You are a member of one of the world's most corrupt organizations,
the U.S. Senate, equaled only by the U.S. House of Representatives.
Congress is a cesspool of liars, thieves, inside traders, traitors, drunks (one
who killed a staffer, yet is still revered), criminals, and other low level
swine who, as individuals (not all, but many), will do anything to enhance
their lives, fortunes and power, all at the expense of the People of the United
States and its Constitution, in order to be continually re-elected. Many
democrats even want American troops killed by releasing photographs. How many of
you could honestly say, "We pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred
h onor"? None? One? Two?
Your reaction to the general shows several things. First is your abysmal
ignorance of all things militaire. Your treatment of the general shows you to be
an elitist of the worst kind. When the general entered the military (as most of
us who served) he wrote the government a blank check, offering his life to
protect your derriere now safely and comfortably ensconced in a multi-thousand
dollar leather chair, paid for by the general's taxes. You repaid him for this
by humiliating him in front of millions.
Second is your puerile character, lack of sophistication, and arrogance which
borders on the hubristic. This display of brattish behavior shows you to be a
virago, termagant, harridan, nag, scold or shrew, unfit for your position,
regardless of the support of the unwashed, uneducated masses who have made
California into the laughing stock of the nation.
What I am writing, Senator, are the same thoughts countless millions of
Americans have toward Congress, but who lack the energy, ability or time to
convey them. Under the democrats, some don't even have the 44 cents to buy the
stamp. Regardless of their thoughts, most realize politicians are pretty much
the same, and will vote for the one who will bring home the most bacon, even if
they do consider how corrupt that person is.
Lord Acton (1834 - 1902) so aptly charged, "Power tends to corrupt and absolute
power corrupts absolutely." Unbeknownst to you and your colleagues, Mr. Power has
had his way with all of you, and we are all the worse for it.
Finally Senator, I, too, have a title. It is "Right Wing Extremist Potential
Terrorist Threat." It is not of my choosing, but was given to me by your
Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano.
And you were offended by "ma'am"?
