The Government Actually Got It Right This Time!

Driving into my office Friday morning, I was behind a vehicle from Washington, D.C. Due to the fact that I had NOT had a cup of coffee yet, was extremely tired from being sick AND being up with Reagan all night while she was sick, I found myself staring in a complete daze at the car's license plate.

At some point, the 'logo' on the plate began to sink in. You know those logos right? Like "First in Flight" "Alabama the Beautiful"...etc, etc, etc? Well, Washington D.C.'s logo just happens to be "Taxation Without Representation". I know they probably meant to be patriotic and sound like they were 'for the people' with that saying, but I couldn't help but chuckle. It came out spot on the exact way it was written...Taxation Without Representation...that's exactly what the American government has turned in to.

Every day the American people lose a little bit more of their freedom to the government in the form of more taxes, more government control, more government regulation and more welfare problems. Every day the future becomes a little more difficult for my daughter..because her generation will bear the brunt of the decisions that are being made now.

We must let the government know we are not going to allow them to continue to run amock with our money, with our lives. April 15th is approaching soon...check out your local community for "TEA PARTIES". Make a stand and make your voice heard!

P.S. Happy birthday my oldest furbaby! You're 10 today!!
