    The Daily ACK!!!


    The Daily ACK!!!
    by Scott Lawrence

    If I hear the term 'fiscal cliff' one more time I think I am going to throw myself off of it. And why the hell are we hearing yet again about a looming dock strike this time affecting the Gulf and Eastern Seaports?

    Is there anyone out there besides myself who is asking the question why we are UN-LOADING cargo ships instead of LOADING them with American manufactured products?


    Maybe about 12.5 million unemployed people in this country, depending on whose predictors you choose to subscribe to.


    How do we avoid the fiscal cliff? How about enacting legislation that states if you want to sell your product here, you've got to build it here. All of it. Made in America, by Americans, for the American consumer. The income tax revenue alone would answer the financial woes traumatizing this nation.


    Unfortunately we don't have leadership on either side of the aisle who isn't directly or indirectly in the pocket of corporate America. Therefore the fools in Washington simply have to go, from the executive branch all the way down.

    Taxation without representation started a revolution before. Isn't it time to throw off such tyranny?


    "But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government."

    Wake Up America!! ACK!!!
