    ....the nerve of President Barack Obama talking about "Taxation without Competent Representation" in Washington, DC, when dysfunctional/inept elected officials like Barack Obama amount to "Taxation Without Competent Representation".


    Presidential limo sports 'Taxation without representation' motto by Richard Simon, Los Angeles Times, January 15, 2013

    WASHINGTON -- President Obama's limousine will display the District of Columbia license plate reading "Taxation without Representation" during inauguration activities and through the remainder of his term to call attention to the district’s lack of voting power in Congress.

    The decision, announced by a White House aide, comes in response to a resolution unanimously passed by the D.C. Council calling on Obama to display the slogan during the inaugural ride down Pennsylvania Avenue to highlight what the resolution calls the "fundamentally unfair and undemocratic condition of district residents."

    "President Obama has lived in the district now for four years, and has seen firsthand how patently unfair it is for working families in D.C. to work hard, raise children and pay taxes, without having a vote in Congress," said White House spokesman Keith Maley. Use of the plate, he added, "demonstrates the president’s commitment to the principle of full representation for the people of the District of Columbia and his willingness to fight for voting rights, home rule and budget autonomy for the district."

    Eleanor Holmes Norton, the district’s delegate in the House, praised Obama for "agreeing to a small but larger-than-life sign of his commitment to the district and its residents."

    "Each step must be counted as bringing us closer to our full entitlement as American citizens who pay more than our fair share of federal taxes and have served in all the nation’s wars, always without the rights those obligations demand," she added.

    President Clinton displayed the "Taxation without Representation"  plate -- the district’s standard license plate -- on the presidential limo, but President George W. Bush said he did not want to use license plates to make "a political statement."

    D.C. residents pay federal taxes and can vote for president but have a nonvoting delegate in the House and no representation in the Senate. Legislation to provide for "the admission of the state of New Columbia into the Union" has languished in Congress.

    In 1993, the House rejected a bill to make the district a state. The idea faced resistance from Republicans because the strongly Democratic district would probably elect two Democratic senators and a Democratic member of the House if it became a state.

    A bill that would have added two seats to the House -- one for the District of Columbia and another for Republican-leaning Utah -- died in 2010 after a measure was attached to it that would have weakened D.C. gun laws.

    Oath of Office: "I, (President, Supreme Court Justice, Congressperson, Assemblyman, County Board of Supervisor's Member, Mayor, City Councilperson, Judge, ), during such times as I hold the office, I, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States (the Constitution of the State of California, Maryland, Illinois, etc., etc.), against all enemies foreign (terrorist enemies of the U.S., illegal immigrants, un-American or un-Constitutional anything and everything, etc.) and domestic (treasonous individuals or organizations, any Police Chief who condones this and the Police Chief's rogue police officers, unethical or criminal elected officials or public servants, illegal aliens or his or her advocates, un-American anything and everything), and that I will bear true faith and allegiance, to the Constitution of the United States , (State Constitution), and that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties upon which I am about to enter."


    “There are cases where an individual has been wrongfully treated by his government and about the only way, unless the individual resorts tocourt, and even in some cases the courts are not able to give proper relief, the only area or avenue open to the individual is through his representative. When you find a bona fide error has been made, I suggest that you make a maximum effort to remedy it. This I feel is a vital and important function of those of us in the House of Representatives”.
    Authors: Donald G. Tacheron and Morris Udall, from the book entitled, “The Job of the Congressman”, pages 65 and 66.
    (The above excerpt “The Job of the Congressman” holds true for any elected office holder, and/or U.S. Citizen.)
    Article VI, USC:  This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State
    shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary not withstanding.
    “……Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and Members of several State legislatures (all elected officials), and all executive and judicial Officers of the United States and of the several states, Shall be bound by oath of affirmation, to support this Constitution.
    14th Amendment, USC, Section 1:   “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
    14th Amendment, USC, Section 4
    :   “……But neither the United States public debt of the United States nor any State shall assume or
    pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave: but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.”
    It’s not too late for any of these individuals to redeem his or her character, or to truly make a constructive U.S. history first, to be removed from the “disgrace of the essence of what it means to be an elected official list”, the primary requirement of redemption is to uphold the “Principles to which this Nation Stands” to competently represent U.S. born descendants of slaves.

    I'm U.S. born, black, and an inner-city resident and I will be the first to say, and also prove that President Barack Obama is the worst President ever.....and since BO has held office, there are more U.S. born blacks unemployed, and without competent representation than ever.

    Illegal aliens from around the world receive more benefit from President Barack "the Magic Negro-"illegal alien boot licking- The Food Stamp President Obama.


    CNN I-Report: "If given the opportunity or money, I wouldn't be willing to attend no good President Barack "the Magic Negro-Boot licking Illegal Alien-the Food Stamp President" Obama's inauguration because with good reason I don't respect BO" by TheTruth53

    .....Instead of Congresswoman Karen Bass and her associates sending or emailing Barack Obama's "Win tickets to the presidential inauguration" nonsense my direction, President Barack Obama, Congresswoman Karen Bass or her Congressional staff, and the Congressional Black Caucus should forget the inauguration ticket contest, and flood the "White House" with individuals that President Barack Obama truly serves......namely illegal aliens, illegal alien anchor babies, droves of individuals who don't pay property taxes, treasonous individuals such as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, freeloaders, public service union leaders, SEIU members, droves of "low information morons, Reverend John Hunter, Reverend Creflo Dollar, Reverend Al Sharpton, other sleazy individuals etc., etc., to the Barack "the Magic Negro-Illegal Alien-The Food Stamp President" Obama's Presidential inauguration.


    "Its simple restore the District to Maryland and let Maryland represent their interests."



    Since the State of Maryland is adjacent to Washington, DC., and Washington, DC., is too small of an area to be a State, as you state that is a simple and effective solution.

    Once again, the "forked tongue-despot/tyrant President Barack Obama, will use any opportunity to promote himself, and BO is just as guilty of being an elected official who is a disgrace to the office, which amounts to "TAXATION WITHOUT COMPETENT REPRESENTATION".



    For well over four decades, the voting residents of Washington, DC have been, and more than likely continue to be predominately black, yet a primarily black electorate vote for dysfunctional elected officials such as the convicted felon "Cocaine Snorting-Crack Smoking" former Mayor Marion Barry. Marion Barry is now a City Councilman of Ward 8, Washington, DC.

    This being said, the voters of DC are responsible for subjecting Washington, DC to "Taxation without Competent Representation" by voting for individuals who are a disgrace to the office.



    Lies Don't Keep Us Safe. Keeping Us Safe Requires Respect for the Rule of Law and the Constitution. The government'sargument is untenable. “The government cannot, under any circumstance, affirmatively mislead the court” by U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney

    "Insisting on honesty as the only policy, the supreme ruled Wednesday that public employees can be punished forlying,evenwhen they merely deny an accusation that later turns out to be true”.

    “ …….Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist. 'An employee who is asked about possible wrongdoing has only two legalchoices:Tell the truth or say nothing”.  (LA Times, January 22, 1998.)

    ........"Tell the Truth or Say Nothing" also applies to any U.S. President, Congressional office holder, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, U.S. Attorney General, court official, court clerk, Deputy City Attorney, Judge, elected official, lawyer, journalist, etc.
