Funny, Sad and Soulless Politicians: VOTB

Posted in Politics, Vote Out The Bums at 5:44 am by Administrator

For a joke to be funny there must be an element of truth. Several political jokes have made the rounds on the Internet lately. These are soulfully truthful, funny and sad.

These jokes are funny because they hit at the soul of the corrupt politician. Like the Olympic Gold Medal won by the Chinese gymnast that landed on her knees, so is today’s politician – laughable. They are nothing but airhead fronts for big money and their ideas. Two of the presidential candidates are classic examples.

McCain has trouble deciding which of the seven (7) houses he owns to sleep in every night. Many American citizens would like to own just one. Obama isn’t doing to the least of his brothers (the one in Africa), but wants to represent his American brothers on the world stage. Where is Obama’s path out of poverty for his own biological brother let alone needy brothers in American families?

This first joke indicates the baseline inners of the soulless, corrupt politician. Politicians are nothing more than hollow puppets for hire.

Five surgeons from big cities are discussing who makes the best patients to operate on.

The first surgeon, from New York, says, “I like to see accountants on my operating table because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered.”

The second, from Chicago, responds, “Yeah, but you should try electricians! Everything inside them is color coded.”

The third surgeon, from Dallas, says, “No, I really think librarians are the best, everything inside them is in alphabetical order.”

The fourth surgeon, from Los Angeles chimes in: “You know, I like construction workers. Those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over.”

But the fifth surgeon, from Washington, DC shut them all up when he observed: “You’re all wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There’s no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains and no spine, and the head and the butt are interchangeable.”

Politicians spoken of in the joke are puppets dancing on the strings of money. They are soulless without humanity, convictions or common sense.

Unfortunately, the more hollow the politician, the more corrupt. They have the knack for winning elections because they don’t care where they get campaign money. (Can anyone said Clinton and China without smiling cash?) They condone election fraud when it benefits them. They become powerful on the hill through a system of seniority. Hollow, vacant and gutless politicians are the truth behind the surgeon’s joke. They would never go for three simple political reforms.

A ban on all advertisement would begin to counter the money advantage. A candidate would only be allowed to campaign in live venues. Time and energy of the candidate would be the limiting factor. (Sorry McCain) Time and energy are incorruptible.

Election fraud could be eliminated with precinct computers and printouts. Voters would use a computer to cast their votes. The computer would print three copies of the voters’ choices. The printouts would have a long identifying number indicating the date, time of day, precinct identifier and computer identifier. One printout would be given to the election officials. Another printout would be given to a non-profit watchdog group. The voter would keep the last printout. This triple proof would begin to guarantee fraud-less ballad counting for elections. The cost of such a system would be equivalent to one day at war in the Middle East!

The congressional seniority system needs to be changed to the most-qualified system. To be eligible for public office a candidate must have taken college credits covering a variety of applicable subject matter. (How many airline pilots or doctors work without degrees?) Once in public office, politicians must earn continuing education credits like all other professionals.

Congressional committee leaders must be the most qualified, not the oldest and least competent. Resumes, qualifying letters and interviews with a cross section of private industry experts affected by the specific committee would determine who gets chosen for committee leadership roles.

If we don’t institute these types of political reform, soulless politicians will continue to do what they do best. See the “2-story outhouse” picture below. The top sign says Politicians. The bottom sign says Voters.

Vote Out The (soulless) Bums: VOTB – every incumbent, every election until we get real governance reform.

Pass on the VOTB idea. Be like Paris and shop. The VOTB Store is open.

P.s. The real reason that we cannot post the Ten Commandments (“You Thou Shalt Not Steal”, “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery”, and “Thou Shall Not Lie”) in a courthouse building full of lawyers, judges and politicians is because they create a hostile work environment.

Russia: To Bribe or Not To Bride

Posted in Politics, Vote Out The Bums at 10:38 pm by Administrator

Russia knows how to play the ‘world chess game’. When the Bear makes a move the earth trembles. And all our politicians can do is blab meaningless platitudes.

Russia’s military dropped a hammer on the ant, Georgia. The world took note. Some responded with ‘if the U.S. can invade Iraq, what’s wrong with Russia invading Georgia?’ More important than the politics is the chess game for the illusion of world dominance. Russia made a move and the U.S. essentially folded. Georgia in turn asked China for help! Maybe the thought of China getting involved stopped the Bear. Or maybe the objective was reached before any country needed to get involved.

Note the press comments from early August. “Russia said Wednesday (08.06.08) that Iran should be granted more time to respond to a package of incentives that the United States and five other powerful nations have offered Tehran to freeze its uranium enrichment efforts, a stance that may slow U.S. and European efforts to impose U.N. sanctions on Tehran…. U.S. administration officials say Iran is buying time to advance its capacity to enrich uranium; an effort they suspect (‘what if’ politics) is intended to fuel a nuclear weapon.”
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/08/06/AR2008080601085.html

Not only is Russia (a nation with many nuclear weapons) buying time for Iran, but they have taken the invasion of Iran off the U.S. imperialistic dinner table for now. The U.S. won’t invade Iran in the near future (even with intense pressure from the AIPAC) for one main reason. Russia is throwing its support behind Iran. Even the AIPAC doesn’t want to take on Russia just to get at Iran.

Currently, Russia is helping equip Iran’s defenses. “Russia has signed a deal with Iran to sell 29 of its Tor M-1 anti-missile systems, a development that will complicate any planned pre-emptive attack on the rogue nation’s nuclear facilities, reports Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.”
http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=47696

If equipping Iran isn’t enough, Russia’s army is mobilized and close enough to take on any invading force. No one wants that battle except maybe Russia. Check!

The Russian weapons making industry took a big hit a few years ago. “After orders peaked at more than $2 billion a year early in this decade, Chinese arms deals with Russia shrank to almost nothing in 2006, and no major new contracts are in the pipeline, according to Russian, Chinese and U.S. defense experts.”
http://www.rusnet.nl/news/2008/03/03/currentaffairs03.shtml

So Russia has lots of weapons and is pushing to elevate its world status. The chess game continues where it left off two to four decades ago. The U.S. (England) needs to focus on the bigger picture that includes Cuba. Middle East stability will have to be put on hold in favor of world power plays.

Russia doesn’t play by the rules. Back in 2005 the Russia-Iran nuclear deal was signed over U.S. objections. This joint Russian-Iranian venture to complete the $1bn plant at Bushehr means the Bear has a stake in Iran. Russia is the “ensure security” at the plant and for Iran in general. Russia has rejected pressure from the U.S to cut nuclear ties with Iran. Checkmate!
http://www.rusnet.nl/news/2007/12/14/currentaffairs01.shtml

Now politicians from the U.S. (England, too) will have to figure out a civilized way to modify their version of the ‘world chess game’. They will try to control the Bear like a parent tries to control a kid. Parent control their kids with bribes. Will Russia fall for this again?

Maybe they have already been bribed. “The joint program that facilitated these closures (of Russian plutonium-producing reactors), known as Elimination of Weapons Grade Plutonium Production (EWGPP), aims to halt Russian production of plutonium…. With the closure of Siberian Chemical Combine, located in Seversk….. The United States has donated $926 million in order to help refurbish nearby fossil fuel and wind plants to compensate for the loss of energy.”
http://www.armscontrol.org/act/2008_07-08/RussianPlutonium

Recently, the temperature of Al Gore’s global warming butt was elevated. Not only are U.S politicians advocating fossil fuel use in Russia but also “Congressional Republicans claimed that as Vice President Al Gore may have violated the law by keeping secret the details of a 1995 deal to restrict Moscow’s transfer of nuclear technology to Iran.”
http://www.armscontrol.org/act/2000_11/russirannuc

Corrupt U.S. politicians know about bribes. They think all politicians around the world operate like that. They will talk with hollow certainty about Russia. Some will turn back the clock (McCain) and use cold war expressions. Bottom line – none of them have a clue how to play chess with the Bear if the bribes don’t work.

The time is right for new political blood. We need politicians who think beyond bribing children. VOTB: Vote Out The Bums – every incumbent, every election.

Fight for Freedom, not for Politicians: VOTB

Posted in Politics, Vote Out The Bums at 4:08 am by Administrator

“War is politics carried out by other means” Karl von Clausewitz

Freedom is worth defending and dying for. Politicians are not. The lives of U.S. citizens are freedom’s most valuable commodity. They should not be wasted fighting someone else’s war.

Politicians aren’t defending freedom. They are aligning themselves behind ideas put forth by groups such as the AIPAC (The American Israel Public Affairs Committe), Freedom’s Watch (the “$200 million mouthpiece for military action”), Move America Forward (MAF) and other pro-war lobbyists. The most powerful group is the AIPAC (a Pro-Israel Lobby). They have worked with Congress and the Executive Branch for decades on numerous critical initiatives — from securing foreign aid for Israel to stopping Iran’s nuclear program.
http://www.aipac.org/about_AIPAC/default.asp

Many think that the U.S. is going to war with Iran because of AIPAC. http://www.stopaipac.org/iranresolution.htm

If you don’t believe war with Iran is in the planning stages, check out another source.
“Why was the ‘Iran clause’ forbidding war on Iran without Congressional approval taken out of the recent supplemental for the Iraq war funding?” (1) The answer is that AIPAC wanted it out. Why is this hawkish influence on our politicians so controlling?
(1) http://www.jewishvoiceforpeace.org/publish/article_835.shtml

“On the rare occasion when a brave member of Congress dares to stand up to the unrelenting AIPAC tyranny, that person is targeted for unelection in the next congressional campaign. Big money is directed by AIPAC and/or its analogues into the coffers of the senator’s or congressman’s opponent. Over and over again, AIPAC has shaped the U.S. Congress in this way, so successfully that no one even dares speak out any more.” You can read more at:
http://www.antiwar.com/cole/?articleid=3467

Politicians know that American citizens prefer their wars to have moral dimensions that rise above geopolitics (like oil or defending Israel). So, the cries of nuclear capability are heard loud and clear as the reason for invading Iran. The word terrorist has been framed as a secondary reasoning for invading Iran. The ideas nuclear capability and terrorist hide their true motivations and generally magnify tensions of possible threat.

We are living with many nations (China, Russia, France, The United Kingdom, India, Pakistan, North Korea, etc.) that have nuclear capabilities. Interesting enough, Israel is believed to have nuclear weapons, but refuses to confirm or deny them. So what is the big deal if Iran gets nuclear capabilities? They are no threat to the U.S. freedoms.

The police in every town across the U.S. have a rehearsed response to this “what if” scenario. When a person reports that someone is threatening to kill them, all the police say is “no crime has been committed. We can’t do anything.” Therefore, they could only talk with the threatening person. This should be the policy with Iran, not war.

The talk with Iran should be along the lines of a “mutual assured defense” statement. If you strike we have a rapid response team ready to take out the heart of your homeland. More severe details could be spelled out and they would be understood. (Does anyone remember that the Berlin wall came down just this way?)

Politicians use ‘what if’ scare tactics as a smoke screen. Instead of defending the blood of U.S. soldiers, these politicians are consumed with self-interest and the interest of the pro-war money people. Politicians think that it is better to be reelected than speak to truth about the AIPAC or any other hawkish influences governing political decisions and war. (Where is the ‘maverick McCain’ on the AIPAC issue? Is our war hero scared too?)

Wars fought for the likes of special interests (AIPAC, etc) are a crime against the humanity of U.S. citizens. Politicians have blood on their hands when they send our citizens to wars with no immediate threat to our freedom. These politicians need to be voted out. VOTB

A total break with current group of politicians is the only way to bring human dignity back into government. As one e-mailer stated, “the government is 100% corrupt.” One hundred per cent of the politicians need to go. VOTE OUT THE BUMS: every incumbent, every election.

Presidential (hot) Paris: VOTB

Posted in Politics, Vote Out The Bums at 8:16 pm by Administrator

Paris Hilton exemplifies the comical nature of politics. This year’s election seems to be scripted by the writers from Saturday Night Live. Obama and McCain are saying bizarre things as if they were on LSD. Tire inflation is a national energy policy! Campaign ads compared a male presidential candidate to two female pop stars, Britney and Paris. Politics and politicians are laughable beyond belief. VOTB

Paris Hilton is hot even without an environmental impact statement. McCain is a stone cold iceberg. Obama is a throw-up warm muffin. The rest of the presidential field is global warming green – with envy. Paris is more real and has more to offer American citizens than all the rest combined.

Thank you, Paris for throwing your Gucci hat into the presidential race. Since the presidential race is nothing more than a popularity contest, Paris wins. She will get most of the male vote (she’s hot). Even though only females with good taste will vote for Paris there are plenty of quality shoppers out there in the heartland. Paris has publicly stated that she won’t accept any votes from discount shoppers. All in all, Paris should win by more votes than Clinton did when Ross Perot was a third party candidate.

Physically, Paris is much better looking than any of the candidates or Hillary for that matter. You can bet that Paris’s press conferences will be the most highly rated in television history . McCain may have bigger boobs, but Paris looks better in a swimsuit. Obama and Paris are sporting types, but Paris keeps her shape without having to play basketball and getting all sweaty. However, Paris may show some moisture on the dance floor!

Paris has stage presence and speaks confidently without thinking about her words. McCain and Obama talk as if they have stage fright. They constantly stutter and use “uh”. They speak with broken sentence structure, trying to avoid saying the wrong thing. Paris only speaks of stylish things open to designer interpretations.

Take your mind off the irrational and get fictionalized with the 1 Law 4 All series. Politicians’ secret lives exposed as you can only imagine.
Ad4Blog2x

We’re getting our focus back. Paris has more to offer than either of the two top candidates. First and most important, she can’t be bought off. Both McCain and Obama are in the pockets of big money. They both want Paris’s lifestyle. Paris doesn’t need big money. She’s hot!

Paris doesn’t waffle on issues. She constantly amazes people with her understanding of the “simple things”. She connects with everyday citizens. She’s honest to a fault. Many can empathize with her when she admits not knowing how to milk a cow. All Obama and McCain want to do is milk American citizens (and non-citizens) until we become poor peasants. They are both globalists with elitist delusions of becoming King of the Americas.

Paris is a steadfast shopper and clubber. As president she would institute an economic stimulus policy that included a ‘National Shopping Week’ (that’s hot), ‘Club Hopping Month’ (with no DUIs) and ‘Buy you best friend a designer outfit’ Day – once a month!

Paris would institute ‘uniform reform’. As another part of her stimulus package she would class up the uniform business. Her people would redesign the uniforms for the armed services, city and state police and prison folk (both guards and prisoners in pastels, of course). Hospital personnel colors will move towards the left with a mauve taupe hue. Neither Obama nor McCain are offering anything as eye stimulating as (hot) Paris.

“We need some totally hot legislation” to help those unfortunate Wal-Mart shoppers, she might state. Now, only politicians and celebrities ride limousines to the mall. To counter elitism travel, Paris will recreate public transportation in the image of a natural gas-powered limousine. That’s an economic equality idea for the ages. Public transportation will become more popular than the SUV!

This blob calls for a presidential debate with Paris, McCain and Obama. Saks 5th avenue should host the debate. The debate should cover everyday topics like style and wardrobe assembly necessary for presidential trips abroad, lowering taxes to allow for more shopping (that’s hot) and printing our own money (down with the private, for profit owned Federal Reserve) to lower the national debt (and allow for more shopping – hottest).

Why don’t citizens see the Paris light? Paris isn’t a bum. All the other politicians lack her style and grace. And most importantly Obama and McCain are in the pockets of big, international money pushing global ideas.

Cowardly Lions: VOTB

Posted in Politics, Vote Out The Bums at 8:08 pm by Administrator

The cowardly lion in the Wizard of Oz lacked the courage to act in the face of fear. He proclaims that courage is “what makes a king out of a slave”.

Politicians act like the cowardly lion. While roaring verbiage in front of TV cameras, they lack the courage to represent the citizens. Without even thinking twice about empathizing with citizen’s economic woes, they leave Washington and go on holiday. Politicians just keep giving us more reasons to mobilize and VOTE OUT THE (cowardly) BUMS.

During the past few months politicians had multiple chances to become kings but choose to stay slaves to party ideology. Instead of putting themselves in the shoes of most citizens, they chose to identify with the elitist, rich folks. Politicians don’t worry about rising costs. They’re driving, flying, eating – basically living – on our dime. “So what if voters are hurting, we’re not” is the way they act.

The vacationing politicians lack courage to do the right thing. They represent the citizens but wouldn’t stand up for them. They instead choose to allow citizens to suffer longer than necessary with higher energy prices.

There’s an old Chinese proverb that says, “A long march starts from the very first step.” The first step in the present oil crisis is to “drill here, drill now”.

The cowardly politicians refused to take that “first step” towards helping U. S. citizens. They refuse to stop fighting like children in middle school. They refuse to put the interest of the citizens first. They refuse to courageously stand up to their party leaders and say enough with the party politics.

Some politicians ask, “How is it that oil’s overhead goes up and so do the profits?” They actually believe that in most businesses, as overhead raises, profits fall. (Why aren’t the airlines showing huge oil industry-like profits?) To counter rising overhead, businesses will raise prices to keep the same profit margin. Politicians know something smells fishy, but are too cowardly to expose the truth. Instead they continue to play childlike power games blaming Bush.

If the Bushs (father and son) are trying to help big oil get richer, why don’t these cowardly politicians do some investigative work and prove it. They have the manpower to expose all the Bushs’ family connections to the oil companies. Politicians lack the courage to expose how corrupt the political system truly is. (google Promis Software or Inslaw Affair for real political cowardness)

Today’s politicians are inbred, courage less, jellyfish. Put them on any inner city street corner and they wouldn’t last ten minutes without calling daddy or mommy for help.

The lack of political courage is just another reason to Vote Out The Bums. A vote for any incumbent is a vote for rising energy (and living) costs.

This winter while you’re struggling to pay gasoline, food and heating costs, your cowardly lion politician will be warm and cozy spending your dime. Don’t be a sucker – VOTB!
