   Allsogreat posted on Main Page The Lobby  Thought I'd share my letter to my Congressmen;

Dear Senator Inhofe / Senator Coburn / Rep. Mark Wayne Mullins

The war in Afghanistan which started 7 October 2001, a mere 12 years ago is still going on.
This is a war that has enriched the lives of so many stockholders and War Profiteers.. This war has become the greatest, richest, Profit Center since we sent our soldiers to die in Vietnam. And only at a cost of $1.5 Trillion. You folks in Congress have done a praise worthy job funding this war.

I won’t dwell on the 2000 dead young men and women, our soldiers, that faithfully served our country to protect the poppy fields of Afghanistan. Nor will I dwell on the 18,000 maimed and mutilated young soldiers returning home. We know the VA will take care of them. They are so very good at their job.

As a reward for your Congressional efforts in this regard, I think each of you should receive a paid Christmas vacation [30 days] in Afghanistan clearing the roads of mines, IED’s and dead bodies, so that you’ll have a better grasp of how important this war is, and a better understanding of the terror, death and destruction that our young soldiers face every day.

My hope for all of you moral men and women in Congress is that all the taxpayers and voters will get out on election day and express their thanks. You deserve it.

   Hollyhock  Wow! This is so well written. I love the way you expressed your disgust for them in such a positive way. The last time I sent a letter to my Senator Patty Murray she thanked me and subcribed me to her doofus email list.

   Surfhut  We're neighbors! My congressman is James Lankford (2nd District ). He ran as an outsider against business as usual. Immediately was appointed to some powerful positions and got very comfortable with business as usual.

He made a trip to Afghanistan. The report he wrote about his findings made me ill.

   Allsogreat  Some of our Soldiers have made as many as 5 tours in the middle east. That's unconscionable since there's no benefit for them, or our country. Although it does enrich a lot of corporations. I want them home. My plan is to send a differing versions of my letter every week to my three congressmen for the next twelve months. Sometimes our elected criminals do listen. I wish everyone would do the same....we've gotta stop this crap....H

   Guard SGT (ret)  I understand your feelings. But we must remember this was a war that was declared on all of us. The enemy has declared every American here or there, a lawful combatant. That means they can kill any of us when ever they can.
Remember the British fought a very long war with the IRA in Northern Ireland. There were a great many that said the British couldn't win that war. The British didn't quit and in the end the IRA came to terms.
The enemy has declared and 9-11 shows it, they are willing when possible to fight here. They believe we are weak and unwilling to fight the long fight to defeat them.
One of my "Rules of War" is that it is always better to be the visiting team in war.
If we are to be free, this is a war we must win.

   Carmen  I can see getting into a war to win it but that isn't what we do any more. Fighting a war for 10+ years isn't fighting to win --- it is playing with people's lives.

Very good letter - I just hope those it goes to actually read it.

   Allsogreat posted on Main Page The Lobby  My new years resolutions for 2013

Start watching, and believing the MSM news channels - who needs the truth anyway?
Buy more stuff Made In China - the Chinese need jobs worse then Americans.
Lobby Congress to give all illegal aliens amnesty - again Americans don’t need jobs.
Buy a foreign car - help put American auto workers out of work.
Get on Food Stamps.
Start a solar panel company and get a $500M dollar Government loan just before I file for bankruptcy.
Get a job at Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac - they give really great bonuses if you do a bad enough job.
Lobby Congress to pass more regulations - we need to ruin more small businesses.
Lobby Congress to eliminate the Bill of Rights - we don’t need any.
Apply for a grant to study the sex life of the protozoa living in my cats water bowl.
Build a house on a flood plain - the government will replace it if it’s gets washed away.
Support another Congressional pay raise.
Send O’Bama off on vacation.
Lobby congress to allow more Muslims into the U.S. so they wont have to travel so far to carry on their Jihad.
Support more whale research in Egypt.
Tell Congress to send troops to Syria.
Buy a house I can’t afford.
Become more politically correct.
Take down my American flag - don’t want to offend the neighborhood association or the foriegners living in MY country.

Have I missed anything that should be on my list?
