I Donâ€™t Feel Much Like Talking Anymore
By: Carolyn Hileman
When we the people called the Toll Free Switchboard 866.340.9281, and told them no amnesty bill, they shut it down only to change the number and put it on the floor yet again. When we the people called and told them no to the dream act, they took it off the defense bill, now guess what? ITâ€™S BACK. I have talked to these people till I am blue in the face and I am sick of talking to them, I donâ€™t feel much like talking anymore.
I feel like screaming, I feel like climbing up on my roof top and screaming ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, STOP TRYING TO HAND MY COUNTRY OVER TO WHOM EVER YOU DAMN PLEASE. I donâ€™t pay taxes so that they can fund heath insurance for illegal immigrants, I donâ€™t pay taxes so they can use it to send children of illegal immigrants to colleges half of the American children cannot afford to attend. I donâ€™t pay taxes so that I can pay for their emergency room visits, welfare and food stamps, I pay taxes for my fellow citizens, I pay taxes so that when we are at war we can afford to fund it. I pay taxes so that children of taxpayers who cannot afford to send their kids to college might have a chance to see their child do better, but I damn sure do not pay taxes to fund illegal activity and that is what they are asking me to do and I say not no but HELL NO!!
I am about to decide we need to call them every single day and say hello this is a taxpayer and I just wanted to remind you that you work for me. My kids will tell you my worst pet peeve is I hate to repeat myself, as I am sure you can tell by now I am past fed up, my kids understand the word NO better than our senators. Maybe there arenâ€™t enough people calling them, maybe we are speaking way to softly, maybe they canâ€™t understand us, maybe we need to yell it to them I mean really they are all the way in Washington, maybe the connection is bad. Maybe we need to yell; maybe we need to get our neighbors to yellâ€¦
We work way to long and way to hard to just allow them to decide that they are going to ignore us. We pay their salary, every single one of them answers to all of us. I really do not care what state they say they represent, they are representing our tax dollars and by God it is time they learned what we the people want. So call 1-866-340-9281 and take out your frustration on those people who truly deserve it. Most times I am very calm, today is not one of those days, I am angry that our senators do not care what we the taxpayers want and I just donâ€™t feel much like talking anymore.
“We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills;we shall never surrender.”
In Germany they came first for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
Martin Niemoeller (1892-1984)
“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should
also have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of
independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include
their own government.”
– George Washington
In the End,
we will remember
not the words of our enemies,
but the silence of our friends.
