These truly are tectonic times folks. As I stated to my father in an email earlier today:
"We are no longer a government of the people, by the people and for the people. We are a government that is controlled, bought and paid for by corporations, banks and special interests groups - but I don’t think these elected leaders will really wake up until they see a few of their brethren hanging from lamp-posts. Now I don’t condone this action, but I do anticipate we will see it in the not too distant future, as I smell a revolution brewing."
With that said, enjoy the video below - where a disabled Marine vet tears his congressman (Brian Baird, 3rd District, Washington) a new one...
Better listen up dear elected leaders - you swore to defend the Constitution and your constituents plan to ensure that you do!
Comments below from the young Marine vet posted on his youtube video page:
I, David William Hedrick, a member of the silent majority, decided that I was not going to be silent anymore. So, I let U.S. Congressman Brian Baird have it. I was one questioner out of 38, that was called at random from an audience that started at 3,000 earlier in the evening. Not expecting to be called on, I quickly scratched what I wanted to say on a borrowed piece of paper and with a pen that I borrowed from someone else in the audience minutes before I spoke. So much for the planned talking points of the right wing conspiracy.
Well done David - Semper Fi! (translation for those uninitiated: "always faithful")
