Return of the Soviets!

My computer and my camera aren't state of the art....but even at middle-aged they are remarkable for their quality and cheapness compared to the earlier versions. I've had five computers and five cameras....each generation a quantum leap above the previous at the same or less cost.

Gosh, how do you think that happens?

My government however gets MORE expensive and less satisfying with every election. This latest juggernaut- after the idiocy of the Clinton years, the Big Government Bush era ending with the final flourish of TARP is a nightmare. Omnibus after Stimulus of unread 2000 page bills. Now health care: a soviet style bureaucratic behemoth steamrolled on top of us in this age of faster/better/cheaper interconnectivity. Passed in a rush by a strict one-party vote with bribes and set asides to buy the last few holdouts.

Private business gets better and better. Government machinations cost more and have to be enforced at the point of a gun. Hmmmmmmm.

It is time to start taking back our country by eliminating these commies in office. An armed march on Washington is necessary to restore order & clean house. We need millions of capable, patriotic citizens to do their duty (many sworn to uphold the constitution when we were either commissioned or enlisted etc).

State & local houses need to be cleaned also, but start at the top & work down - no exceptions - if guilty, then gone.
