Restart government by bringing Congressional brats to shame!


    What can the average American citizen do who does not like the fact that the government was shut down by a relatively few radicals in the U.S. Congress who are acting like selfish children, like bullies and brats, that want their own way, are yelling, screaming and throwing temper tantrums, failing to do their chores, pass a budget, pay our debts, and get on with the business of making laws?

    I propose we tar and feather the Congressional brats with words of ridicule and make them sit on the naughty stool, in the corner wearing a dunce hat! I propose that we the people who they are failing to represent, who they are causing to suffer by reduction of wages, benefits and the means to a livelihood, that we take action using the modern miracle that is the Internet, that we speak up and boot these Congressional brats from public office.  

    I further propose that we the people take action to so expose these bullies and brats for the bad character and idiocy they exhibit which hurts other people, that they will be forced to resign from office.

    The Congress of the United States represents all the people; it is NOT a place for a few to throw spokes in the wheels and shut down the whole government because they may not like the color of the president's skin, the fact that there are people who are suffering in poverty, who need low cost health insurance, who may be homeless or without jobs and need a hand to reach out and lift them up, as Christ might give with spiritual inspiration or the Good Samaritan might give with aid from a stranger along the roadside.

    Have we forgotten how to love our neighbors? Have we lost our way in the modern muck of tea party politics open only to those who are white, rich or patrons of greedy industrialists living in mansions, castles or upon estates at the top of the social-economic ladder? Have we forgotten the masses who are not so well off and  but by the grace of God there go I?

    Yet we are those masses. We are the people. We are the ones hurt when Congressional Tea Party brats misbehave and do not properly represent ALL THE PEOPLE by acting to keep the government running and open to business. Hence we the people should respond by tar and feathering those disobedient brats out of office with ridicule, shame and the dishonor they deserve for their failure to perform their duty as public servants.

    I call upon all who agree to demand that those Congressional Tea Party brats responsible for the shut down of the government resign immediately! If they do not resign lets use the Internet and social media to badger the bullies and the brats, exposing their selfishness, greed, hypocrisy and idiotic, irresponsible behavior, until they are so shamed that they cannot show their faces in public.

    Let's restart the government by showing that we the people are still in control. Let's punish those who failed to do their duty by not only calling for their immediate resignation, but by docking their pay and suspending any and all of their benefits indefinitely. Then lets constructively campaign to elect representatives who will not fail the people by acting like selfish bullies and brats.

    By taking power and control back from the bullies and the brats, by restarting the government with resolve to punish those who were responsible for its shut down, an act which hurt millions of people, caused much suffering and hurt the reputation and image of these United States of America, we the people can show that it is NOT a few bullies and brats who rule the nation; rather, it is the majority which rules in the 21st Century, just as in the tea party days of old when our nation was founded.

Do you think the city of Meridian should aggressively enforce the city's code enforcement laws on litter, abandoned homes and overgrown lots by issuing tickets and stiff fines?
