After watching the committee meeting yesterday with Solyndra’s management pleading the fifth amendment after each question asked of them I was sicken as I realized for the first time in my life the new Mafia has arrived in America. This new Mafia doesn’t carry the Tommy guns of yesteryear, nor do they bomb the restaurant owner or the grocery stores who oppose extortion tactics, what they do is far worse.
Though they may not be packing the heat like the thugs of yesteryear they are just as dangerous to the American Citizens. The mob figures of the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s don’t hold a candle to those who now are the featured thugs of the new millennium. Capone, Moran, Morelli, Pollizzi, even our own Bugsy Siegel in Las Vegas Nevada committed atrocities that scarred our city and towns; however they faded into the abyss as agents put them out of business. No such fate for this new Mafia, the agents of today refuse to touch them, they fear for their lives and those of their families unlike the Elliot Ness’s who dedicated careers to eliminating the criminal activities of these mobsters.
As we look back in history we can observe the patterns evolving as our politicians began to change the course of our nation through the same tactics used by syndicates all across America. The mob sent figures into a grocery store to inform the owner they were in need of insurance, protection money so they wouldn’t have unimaginable disasters happen. Today our politicians extort trillions of dollars from taxpaying citizens for items they don’t need nor want, like the solar panels of Solyndra. If we don’t agree the mob is sent out to make life miserable for those who question their reasoning in way of tax audits, background checks into personal business or habits by Police, FBI or CIA agents.
Harry Reid and is band of minions continually threaten those who oppose him regardless of affiliation. During the last debate with Sharron Angle his closing statement was ” I am a fighter. I will continue to fight for what I believe is best for the American people. We have a long ways to go. But we have made some progress, and I’ll continue to do everything I can for the people of Nevada.” Get it, his statement wasn’t I will fight for what my constituents believe in, it was I will continue to fight for what “I believe in”.
The Tea Party Patriots decided to stand up against unfair taxation policies prevalent in Congress today and were castigated as right-wing nuts, “Astroturf” Nazi’s and the list goes on and on and on. These members are not nuts or radicals, they are Americans who love their country and hate the politics that have eroded the quality of living for all citizens of this great nation. They are Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Independents, Conservatives and yes some liberals. Americans who felt strongly against the policies enacted by Congress.
Public sector unions created two classes of people. Those who get benefits for practically nothing and those who have to pay not only for their own benefits but those of the public sector union members too. These unions main goal was growth with the intent of raising money through dues to fill the coffers of those politicians willing to enact laws detrimental to the future of this country but not the unions.
The public sector union employees received benefits that no member of the private sector could ever imagine. Those public servants (politicians) working for all Americans somehow pulled the wool over our eyes and created a Mafia hierarchy that has devastated this nation.
Our elected officials offer or are offered payoffs and payouts in order to remain in power such as the mob syndicates had done for so many years creating power and wealth from illegal or unethical activities. Our President allegedly helped in the funding of 554 million dollars to Solyndra, a company that never should have received one dime of taxpayer’s money as auditors would attest to today. He didn’t do this for the good of the country, he did it to push his green technology ideology on all Americans, insisting America needs this green technology such as the thugs preying on store owners back in the day.
This President as well as his predecessor gave billions in stimulus money to GM and Chrysler to overt bankruptcy as reported by Obama after which he did pressure the industry to use the bankruptcy code and had taking away the investors 1st right of ownership only to handout billions to the union pensions as a blatant payoff for those unions help to get him elected with contributions in the millions to his Presidential campaign.
President Bush, our 43rd President appears to have offered Congress free rein if they would allow him to invade Iraq and Afghanistan. As the wars continued so too did the uncontrollable spending habits to the tune of a 4.8 trillion dollar increase to the national debt over his two terms as President. President Obama will be considered the biggest spending in the history of our country as he is on track to add more than 6 trillion dollars to our national debt by the end of his first term.
No political party is exempt from this mob mentality as all parties have members using fear and divisiveness to drive their desires to get what they want. This new Mafia must be stopped if we are to survive as a nation. We must eradicate this venom from the Halls of Congress as quickly as we can or we will cease to be the Greatest Nation the World has ever known.
The problems we face in this country are not those of the Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians nor of the Independents. The problems we face are the problems of all Americans, regardless of race, creed or color. We must unite as one to fight those mafia rulers to return our freedoms to the individuals. We must inform Congress they no longer can pass laws which are unconstitutional. We must stand together to return Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness back to our nation as written so many years ago. Together we can be the voice of America, for the good of America. Patriots one and all!
