    Letter to Barbra Boxer

    Babs:

    You were so right on when you scolded the general on TV for using the
    term, "ma'am," instead of "Senator." After all, in the military, "ma'am"
    is a term of respect when addressing a female of superior rank or position.

    The general was totally wrong. You are not a person of superior rank
    or position. You are a member of one of the world's most corrupt
    organizations, the U.S. Senate, equaled only by the U.S. House of
    Representatives.

    Congress is a cesspool of liars, thieves, inside traders, traitors,
    drunks (one who killed a staffer, yet is still revered), criminals, and
    other low level swine who, as individuals (not all, but many), will do
    anything to enhance their lives, fortunes and power, all at the expense
    of the People of the United States and its Constitution, in order to be
    continually re-elected. Many democrats even want American troops killed
    by releasing photographs. How many of you could honestly say, "We pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor"? None? One? Two?
    Your reaction to the general shows several things. First is your abysmal ignorance of all things military. Your treatment of the general shows you to be an elitist of the worst kind. When the general entered the military (as most of us who served) he wrote the government a blank check, offering his life to protect your derriere now safely and comfortably ensconced in a 20 thousand dollar leather chair, paid for by the general's taxes. You repaid him for this by humiliating him in front of millions.

    Second is your puerile character, lack of sophistication, and arrogance which borders on the hubristic. This display of brattish behavior shows you to be a virago, termagant, harridan, nag, scold or shrew, unfit for your position, regardless of the support of the unwashed, uneducated masses who have made California into the laughing stock of the nation.

    What I am writing, Senator, are the same thoughts countless millions
    of Americans have toward Congress, but who lack the energy, ability or
    time to convey them. Under the democrats, some don't even have the 44
    cents to buy the stamp. Regardless of their thoughts, most realize
    politicians are pretty much the same, and will vote for the one who will
    bring home the most bacon, even if they do consider how corrupt that
    person is.

    Lord Acton (1834 - 1902) so aptly charged, "Power tends to corrupt
    and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Unbeknownst to you and your
    colleagues, Mr. Power has had his way with all of you, and we are all
    the worse for it.

    Finally Senator, I, too have a title. It is "Right Wing Extremist
    Potential Terrorist Threat." It is not of my choosing, but was given to
    me by your Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano. And you
    were offended by "ma'am"?

    Have a day. Cheers!
