welcome 110th congress!

ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the people's congress. if you are new or if you are re-elected- here's the deal: we expect you to work for us. you see, we are the people that are mentioned in the constitution that you swore to defend- against enemies foreign and domestic. you represent us. um- let me repeat myself in case you didn't catch that- you represent us. it would be in your best interest to represent your constituents- that's 'we the people'- because if you don't- we will vote your asses out. oh- that's with or without the diebold machines by the way. so- speaker pelosi, president of the senate cheney, and senate majority leader reid- this is what 'we, the people' want:

-end iraq now
-accountability for war crimes of bush and cheney- and what the hell- the rest of the executive branch
-civil liberities restored
-deficit and economics restored- no more breaks for the rich. they have to pay like the rest of us.

that's the first 5 things- i think that you can handle that in the first 100 days. to the democrats- hey- we will give you some slack. but-- and it is a big but- we will be watching. while we understand that this is a big mess to clean up- we will not tolerate bullshit. no concessions on integrity or ethics period. 'we the people' deserve to have a government that works in our best interests- and not in the interests of continuous campaign.

in the words of the immortal 'V': "people should not be afraid of their governments. governments should be afraid of their people."

You go girl! So far, they are moving along on the things they said they would and wrote a letter to Bushie saying no to the surge. Good start.
