Citizens are Against Government Waste but Rodney isn't

Citizens against Government waste reported the Rodney got 300,000 for National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame for the Play it Smart campaign. About time we were in the national media spotlight. I mean its not like the federal government is in some sort of a financial crisis or something. Why worry about our soldiers in Iraq who don't have body armor when you have a football foundation that needs some money.

Rodney and the Swamp

There have been several news articles on Rodney and how great he is for getting $5 million for the Green Brook Project. Well the Commission says it needs $400M to complete Green Brook, good job Rodney! Next thing Rodney will do is place a stick in the way of flowing river and tell us he has funded a damn. Come on, Rodeny do you think we are dumb?

Environmentalism

All hail by Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen for he got us a million dollars for the great swamp! Never mind the fact that his voting record has cost us more then that. Let me explain:

1. Rodney
voted for the Bush energy bill. With gas prices at an all time high there is nothing like giving oil companies more money, then watching them do nothing with the price. The summer estimates are in and they are saying we are looking at a 65 cent increase this summer. So we will be shelling out more for gas, but we have our great swamp.

2. Rodney voted against searching house members for corruption. (11 times) This is just one of those things I don't get it. Someone is dirty, he is making you look bad, so you closed ranks and pretend nothing is wrong? What's the matter Rodney scared what we will find if we investigate? Is Abramoff that connected to you, you are unwilling to let us know the full extent of his reach?

3. Property tax is at an all time high, because our congressman has allowed Bush to reduce government revenue through tax breaks for the rich. Our state is getting less money from the government to run the programs that we like (street repair, school system, port security) so we have to raise property taxes which makes the federal tax look really stupid.

Rodney you have been a faithful public servant, its time to go home.

Wire Tapping is it worth it?

Sorry for the break.

So it has come to light that the wiretapping of phones without warrants started before September 11th and well the New York Times has just released some information on it. In exchange for our right to privacy being vanquished we got nothing, I repeat nothing. Here's the Times to prove it.

- In the anxious months after the Sept. 11 attacks, the National Security Agency began sending a steady stream of telephone numbers, e-mail addresses and names to the F.B.I. in search of terrorists. The stream soon became a flood, requiring hundreds of agents to check out thousands of tips a month. But virtually all of them, current and former officials say, led to dead ends or innocent Americans.


Anyone remember when President Bush said that we were only going to spy on people with known terrorist ties. Me too. More Republicans lies.

The law enforcement and counterterrorism officials said the program had uncovered no active Qaeda networks inside the United States planning attacks. "There were no imminent plots - not inside the United States," the former F.B.I. official said.

Congressman why have you not pushed for censure? Don't you remember "Give me liberty or give me death!" Where's your pride congressman?

Contract with America

What ever happened to the Contract with America? I think its time we canceled our contract with them for failing to live up to their agreements.

1. They pledged to "restore the bonds of trust between the people and their elected representatives," and what have the done but created a culture of corruption. As I wrote in the last post our congressman has contributed highly to this.

2. The Republicans swore that "government that is too big, too intrusive, and too easy with the public's money," was bad and they were going to shrink the government. To say that the failed on this one is an understatement. The federal government is now bigger then it has ever been. The Patriot Act allows near total government intervention into our daily lives. They can check our records, listen to our phone calls, intrude live never before. And now more then ever interferes with the economy.

3. They promised us term limits, yeah that happened.

4. Republicans pledged to "restore accountability to Congress" Again, what happened here? The government has gone unchecked like it has never been before. Pork barrel spending is at an all time high. The executive branch has been able to run up deficits unimaginable, done activities that most would consider unethical and illegal, and not to mention going to war under false pretenses.

5. The interest of the American people have not been looked after, which was the point of the contract.. Millions of jobs have been lost, millions don't have health care, and millions of people are without proper pensions.

6. There was suppose to be middle class tax relief, yet all tax cuts have gone to the wealthy one percent. No tax credit for children no American dream savings account. What went wrong?

7. The contract was suppose to enhance wages, yet it failed. The minimum wage is worth less then it was over twenty years ago. The average person is having to do more with less.

I ask that we nullify the contract.

Ethics, is it too much to ask?

Ethics, is it too much to ask?

Why is it so hard to be honest? Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen was voted to take care of District 11 voters not Tom Delay and the Republicans. Frelinghuysen voted with Tom DeLay 94% of the time. Now a very small percentage of people in this district agree with Tom Delay 94% of the time. What could possibly make it so that Congressman Frelinghuhysen vote like that? Money. He has taken $4,520 from Tom DeLay's ARMPAC. Anyone shocked?

I doubt there is anyone out there who feels that the rules should be changed because one person doesn't want to play by them anymore. Our leaders need to be held to a high standard after all we need there best judgment. Yet, Rodney Frelinghuysen voted to weaken the ethics rules in a move that many say served only to protect Tom DeLay. I mean come on, where does it stop?
