Who are the Real Servants of the People?

I need to say no more about my stance on government and who are the real servants of the people. This video says it all for me. To me, this video exemplifies the difference in the meaning behind "In God we Trust" and "In Government we Trust". For in this video we see how government shows its belief in the people instead of demanding that the people show its belief in government.

a h/t to the professor over at Legal Insurrection for this video and story.

Easy one to answer, in this Monarchy with the House of Lords, we commoners or serfs have the benefit of the I.R.S's gun point as our servant. Without them our nation would crumble beneath our feet. Only they make the American Dream availible to all. Reguardless of tax production or tax consumption.

To all libs and progressives,

My take on government will always be in the many voices that sing in unison to this.


Freedom of spoken voices and from taxes works for me.

I don't have any Problems with Government/Business Out Sourcing Partnerships. Sounds Great!

I have said it before and again I have no problems with what the government is doing.

I am glad this community got what they needed and wanted..

Lista said...

Yeh, but they Didn't. Obama Care is Being Protested and Fought at Every Turn.

In Case you don't Know, Tweetey, I am a Moderate Republican and I am Opposed to Both Extremes. The Reason Why Griper and I Argue so much is because I Believe in Compromise. I Also Find Obama's Policies to be a Bit Extreme and that is why I am Grateful for the Republican Influence that was Recently Elected to the House.

Funny, Griper is so Determined to Prove his Point about no Compromise, that he is Even Uncompromising in Personal Relationships and not just in Politics.

You've Actually Met with him in Person, so Apparently doing so might be Safe. I have Trouble Trusting him, though, because he is both Uncompromising and Unapologetic. Perhaps I'll Talk to you about it more Privately One Day.

Let me Know if you are Trying to discard the Tweetey Title and I will Start Calling you Nbrsspot, even though I Really Think that Tweetey is Cuter.

More for Tweetey,
Huh? You Know what? I didn't Read that Right and I Apologize. When you said, "I have said it before and again I have no problems with what the government is doing.", I though that you Meant the Federal Government and that you were a Democrat. Then when you Said, "I am glad this community got what they needed and wanted.", again I thought you Meant the Democrats.

Actually, though, you said "this community", not the Federal Government. I Guess I'm not Listening Right, but Please don't Tell Griper, OK? lol. :)

don't worry, lista, as you have implied many times i am deaf and cannot see.

I am so Very Handicapped without Non-Verbal Feed Back, Griper. It's just like with this Last Comment from you. It is Impossible to Tell if it is Humble or Sarcastic, but when I Thought about the Possibility that it is Humble, My Heart was Softened Towards you.

I can at Times be Very Very Hard on you, yet if you Only Knew. There ARE Keys to my Heart, Griper, that Cause me to Soften and not be Quite so Negative all the Time. If Only you COULD see. If Only you COULD more Fully Understand.

The Griper said...

why thank you, lista for choosing the more positive of the two intents. that was very kind of you.

Lista said...

You're Welcome and I'm Going to do it again.

Believe it or not, I had a Conditioned Response to your Second Comment as Well. Again my Initial Response was to Suspect Sarcasm and I'm Guessing that the Conditioned Response is Based on a Little Anger, as well as a Learned Low Opinion of you or Bias Against you.

The Reason for this is because of an Event that you Never Apologized for. Don't you see, Griper? There is something that you could have Done in Order to Prevent my Learned Bias and Low Opinion of you. Your Aversion to Making Apologies has a Consequence. For me to Totally Remove that Consequence from you would be to Enable your Bad Behavior.

I've Decided, though, to Set my Bias Aside for now, Give you the Benefit of a Doubt and Take you at your Word that you Truly are Thankful. This is Called Grace (Unmerited or Undeserved Favor) and the Bible Teaches that we are to Offer Grace Once in awhile.

Though, Keep in Mind that the Bible also Says that God Gives Grace to the Humble.

"But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, 'God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.'" (James 4:6, KJV)

So I Guess it is my Perception of Humbleness in your Comment that my Grace towards you is Based on.

Now that Donald Trump is making the kind of waves that should have been made during the run-up to the 2008 Election by our so called Press and by any or all of the Republican Candidates, I must confess that I have become a “Trump Cheerleader.”

I’ve maintained from early 2008, that Obama was and is a Fraud. Not in the sense that I questioned whether or not he was born in Hawaii ….. but more on the lines that I thought he was an empty suit portraying himself as some super intelligent and super competent Executive. It didn’t take me long to confirm my thinking just by looking at who his friends were and his public response to sitting in Wright’s racist Trinity Church for 20 years. My conclusion then and now is that BHO is an arrogant, petulant, super slick lying elixir salesman.

As to the Birth Certificate ….. I always wondered why he just didn’t show the darned thing to get this inconvenient matter out of the way. So from that point of view, I don’t think I was considered a so-called Birther. What I have been all along [and I’ve heard this label of late] is a “Proofer.” –

I don’t know much about this Guy that is now our President. But what I do know he is hiding a whole lot more than his Birth Certificate.

“Promising to be the most transparent president in history, Barack Hussein Obama is the most deliberately opaque president who has withheld many more records than his birth certificate. Not only has he withheld his records, he has fought to keep them hidden from public view, amassing legal fees that some claim to exceed a million dollars of his own money, and perhaps twice that amount if pro-bono and other legal work is counted.” (This quote from a Canada Free Press Article)

The exact opposite of public service can be found at the union/etc protests at state capitols around the country.

There, the protesters don't have in mind what they can do to serve the public, but instead are thinking of how rich they can get while damaging the critical missions of government and bankrupting the public (taxpayers)

The Griper said...

my thoughts exactly, dmarks which was why i found this story so refreshing.
