What's 'good' for the people isn't good for Congress?

It was recently announced that 100% of our congressmen and women declined to participate in ObamaCare. Not a single one of them will be forced to participate in the monstrous bill that they passed and are forcing the rest of us to obey! If this new law is so great...why don't they want to be part of it?

After some quick research I found that there are a lot of laws that Congress passes that they don't have to follow. Why are they passing laws that they are exempt from? If these laws are so good for the people, why are they above the law? They are citizens of this country the same as you and me but they don't have to follow the same laws we do! That doesn't sit well with me. So I've started a petition at the White House website to try and end this horrible double standard. I'll post the link below after the partial list of laws that Congress has exempted themselves from:

* The Freedom of Information Act.
* Investigatory subpoenas to obtain information for safety and health probes.
* Protections against retaliation for whistleblowers.
* Having to post notices of worker rights in offices.
* Prosecution for retaliating against employees who report safety and health hazards.
* Having to train employees about workplace rights and legal remedies.
* Record-keeping requirements for workplace injuries and illnesses.
In 1995, Congress did pass the Congressional Accountability Act, which applied these provisions to Congress:
* The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967.
* The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
* Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
* The Employee Polygraph Protection Act of 1988.
* The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938.
* The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993.
* The Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute that allows collective bargaining by some federal workers.
* Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970.
* The Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
* Veterans' Employment and Re-employment Rights Act of 1994
* The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1989, which requires employers to provide notice 60 days in advance of covered plant closings and covered mass layoffs.
* Provisions of the Veterans Employment Opportunity Act, which gives veterans a preference for federal jobs.

Please take a few minutes to sign these petitions. Let's stand up and take our nation back!

What would our founding fathers say?

Considering the state of things in our country, I can't help but wonder what George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and the others, would think of the way things are going in this once great country they helped create.

I, personally, believe they'd be ashamed. They'd be heartbroken and would, if possible, changes the constitution to be more clear so that it would be impossible to misinterpret it the way that the governments over the ages have done. The Constitution of the United States means something completely today than it did 237 years ago. Instead of making the people free and putting the power of the nation into the hands of the people, it's been reinterpreted to say the complete opposite. The power has been stripped away from the people and placed into the hands and pockets of lifetime bureaucrats. I truly don't believe that the founding fathers intended for politicians to remain in office for decades. And yes, I know they continue to be reelected over and over by the people- by people who are too busy to pay attention to what their representatives are doing.

I don't typically mention movies on here- especially not rated R ones but there's a movie that I saw years ago called The Distinguished Gentleman with Eddie Murphy in it and it's a perfect example of what goes on in Washington D.C. There's some language in it but if I recall it correctly there's no nudity or violence to speak of. It's a very close representation of how I imagine things being done behind the closed doors that our current president promised would remain open and transparent in his administration.

But we all know that this administration has been far more secretive than any in history. Full of lies, full of deceit and scandal. There's no transparency there unless Obama thinks tar is transparent!

Perfect example: I've started a petition on A petition to impeach Obama. But the White house has hidden it. The only way it can be found is by using the link I saved when I started the petition. I'll share it here and I hope you will consider signing it. You must register at in order to sign any petitions so do that first then click on this link so you're able to sign.

Impeach Obama

So far there are only 3 signatures on it and two of those are mine and my husbands. I know for certain that there would be more if people could actually see it.

I know our Lord in Heaven is sickened by the depths to which this country has fallen. Abortion at an all time high, a president who insists this is not a Christian nation yet he supports the Muslim Brotherhood with our tax dollars, Murder, Lying media, scheming lying government who do what they want instead of what the people want. This is not a nation deserving of God's blessings. This is a nation more like Sodom and Gomorrah or the world when Noah built the ark.

We, the people, the Christians of this nation, need to stand up and be heard. Fight!
