The Media IS the Problem

Listening to Jim and Margery when I first got in the car this morning set me to screaming at the radio in 5 sec flat . . . They were discussing MA prop 3 that would cut the sales tax to 3% and how bad that would be.  They are supposed to be right and left, but really are like left and center left. . .  they totally buy into all the BS on how this is a bad thing to lower taxes.
 
But that is not what set me off.  What really got me going is Margery says "if it passes the legislature will not do it.  They will lower it to 5% and that would be OK". . . blink blink. . . ARE YOU FUCKING NUTS!!!!!
 
She is fine with the government ignoring the will of the people.  And she is the supposed Conservative on the show. . . . she buys into the Obama crap and the government knows best bull shit.
 
Folks like this need to go back to school or keep their mouth shut.  The government works for the people, not the other way around.  When the people vote on something, and it passes they are not supposed to ignore that.
 
When this prop passes they had better do it.  If they don't we need to note who ignored the will of the people and remove them.  Impeach them, vote them out I don't care but there has to be a legal means to remove the people in government who have forgotten their oaths and who is in charge. . . .
 
I still can't believe anyone would say it is OK for the legislature to ignore a vote by the people . . . . I think I will be pissed about this one all day. . . .

Doesn't the MA legislature have a long standing tradition of ignoring the will of the people? I can think of at least two ballots that passed only to fall on deaf ears.

Yes, they do ignore the people and often. The thing that scares me the most is that someone thinks this is OK. . . . I say that is why we need to vote them OUT in less than a week. . .
