I hope you are not offended by these cartoon pictures of real butts. They represent the notion of somebody who has really messed something up. I mean our government – Congress (House 435 – Senate 100), the Supreme Court (9) and the President (1). Joe Biden is not counted. You already know why!
Have we all not had enough of the lousy government served up by Washington? It is time to complain and keep complaining – please! Complain to the press, to your neighbor, to the Congress, and to the President. Send them cards and letters, emails, and best of all call them as that makes them try to serve the people rather than themselves.
Of course, feel free to purchase great conservative books at www.bookhawkers.com. The books will arm you with facts for when you get into those political arguments with liberal progressives.
I'd rather not use the word "asshole" to describe all of the elected officials of the US Federal Government. But, as a wise man once said, “What is; is!”
One day an email came that I show completely below and it helped me understand how just 545 people could mess up such a fine country.
Here is the original email that prompted this site. Bravo to Charley Reese. He would make a good Senator for PA.
So what the hell are we waiting for? Let's deal with them !!!!
BY Charley Reese
(Date of publication unknown)-- -- - Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, we have deficits? Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does. You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does. You and I don't write the tax code. Congress does. You and I don't set fiscal policy. Congress does. You and I don't control monetary policy. The Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president and nine Supreme Court justices - 545 human beings out of the 235 million [now over 300 million] - are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered but private central bank.
I excluded all but the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it.
No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislation's responsibility to determine how he votes.
A CONFIDENCE CONSPIRACY
Don't you see how the con game that is played on the people by the politicians? Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of Tip O'Neill, who stood up and criticized Ronald Reagan for creating deficits.
The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it. The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating appropriations and taxes.
O'neill is the speaker of the House. He is the leader of the majority party. He and his fellow Democrats, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetos it, they can pass it over his veto.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 235 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts - of incompetence and irresponsibility.
I can't think of a single domestic problem, from an unfair tax code to defense overruns, that is not traceable directly to those 545 people.
When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair. If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red. If the Marines are in Lebanon, it's because they want them in Lebanon.
There are no insoluble government problems. Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take it.
Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exist disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation" or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people and they alone are responsible. They and they alone have the power. They and they alone should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses - provided they have the gumption to manage their own employees.
This article was first published by the Orlando Sentinel Star newspaper. It was a long time ago but it is still spot on. Tip O'Neill was a man who had honor and who respected America and Americans.

Thank you Charley
Here is some more stuff if you feel like reading a bit more:
Note that Charley Reese took no time to honor the VP with the moniker so we do not either.
The point of this site still is that the 545 assholes in Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Presidency, have literally ruined America, and they are looking for all of us to pay their tab.
Additionally, their schemes in one area or another are intended to give them supreme and absolute power over our daily lives by offering us words that if they had meaning would give us all something wonderful. But, these magicians have tricks and promises and nothing more in their bags than emptiness. And, even their tricks go away with time back into their hiding places when these so-called representatives are comfortably presiding from their offices in Washington. They care very little for the people they agreed to represent. It is up to US to throw them all out and so we must have the strength to do that. They did this to us, period.
When I put up this site a while ago, before it was simplified and before it was made even more attractive, I specified a few of our own 545 renegades from Northeastern PA (NEPA) to give them special coverage. I hoped one day to put all representatives -- all 545 on this site and perhaps I shall.
Back when, there were a number of representatives who are no longer on the scene. Thank the Lord for small favors. We in NEPA are better off today. So, I leave some of the words about these has-beens below because you may recognize the attributes of your Congressman or Senator in their brief descriptions. Here goes:
In Northeastern Pennsylvania, for example, we had two congressman for a time, Paul Kanjorski, and Chris Carney.
Paul Kanjorski, below
Paul Kanjorski survived thirteen terms in office. Like many Democrats, he was OK thinking that the government should run healthcare and he accepted anything else that Nancy from California told him to do. He never represented Pennsylvania.
He felt that he was unbeatable so much that he would not hold an in-person town hall meeting. Instead he held a telephone town hall for which the folks needed to preregister. There was little publicity about it. After all, when all is well, a bad word might screw things up. Who would want to make an asshole out of oneself? So, this Congressman was defeated by Lou Barletta, a fine person, who continues to have the respect of the people in NEPA.
The replacement player for Kanjorski looks like this:
Lou Barletta, Congress
Chris Carney,Former Congressman
Mr. Carney, who had been the Congressman from the northern tier of NEPA wanted to be known as a blue dog but his constituents were always concerned that Nancy Pelosi's bag of tricks was so full of stuff that she found on the private government jet she continually used that she would give any and all of it to Chris Carney if he were willing to forget about his constituency (that's us folks -- we the people). Would he do this to the people? Well, after awhile, the people took matters into their own hands and voted him out of office. Tom Marino, a great Congressman and a great person took his slot, and he was not indecisive on critical matters such as our engagement in Syria. Tom said “no” right from the beginning. So, this is Carney’s replacement:
Yes, the replacement player for Carney looks like Tom Marino, because it is him.
Former Senator Arlen Specter
The late Arlen Specter became black and blue from all the beatings he took in his town hall meetings. The flip-flop Senator who was never a favorite of conservatives chose to become a Democrat when Republicans had rejected him. He hoped the Dems would love him. They tricked him as they trick us all.
Despite being the resilient soldier fighting town hall meeting after town hall meeting, one after another Arlen Specter was still Arlen Specter, who many referred to Benedict Arlen. If you can count and if you got here, you can… well, you could have counted on the Senator pleasing Harry Reid—not the people of PA. But, at least Specter stood up and fought at town halls. Like him or not and most understandably do not... Specter was a man. He had a fine replacement player when he finally stepped down, and unfortunately shortly after, he passed away.
The replacement player for Specter looks like this:
Pat Toomey, US Senator
Now, in NEPA, there is also Bobby, "the Weasel" Casey heralding from good ole Scranton PA. Bobby believes that political expediency is, how shall I say this -- oh, "expedient." He believes that good is good and bad is bad and better is better and worse is worse. He has not come up with anything original in which the noun and the predicate adjective are not the same word. But, his name is Bob Casey. His dad and mom are great people and his family is a great family. Unfortunately, Mr. Casey, our Senator is an apple far from the tree.
For three weeks in 2010 while Specter was taking a beating for his beliefs Casey was MIA in NEPA. Specter was getting loaded grenades thrown at his chest and he remained immovable -- not that Specter was a great conservative -- he just stood up for his beliefs better than Bob Casey Jr. chose to.
Bob made it known that he was on vacation and did not come out of hiding until about the fourth week in August. He said his family deserved a vacation. Pennsylvanians were suggesting at the time that they could use some representation but for the years the Senate has been in office we get none. He does love Barack Obama and would go to hell for him if he had to.
Don't representatives and Senators get a lot of time off like at holidays etc? But, Casey felt in 2010 that the family needed him to be with them. He of course was not running at the time. -- not that that matters. People do forget and in 2012, NEPA forgot and brought back the weasel.
Casey was reelected in 2012. He still has that weasel look though. Check out the picture and tell me what you see.
You may remember Bobby’s dad whose pro-life views got in the way of the party leaders and though he was supposed to be a speaker at the Clinton convention, Bob Sr. was banned because he was pro-life and the platform was pro-death.
Nonetheless Bobby the Weasel and his no name brother got up on the stage like puppies looking for a bone -- on the same symbolic stage that denied their dad. I'll never forget the gutless twins. Now, Bobby the Weasel is a Senator. Pennsylvanians deserve better.
The replacement player for Casey looks like this:
Senator Robert P. Casey Jr.
Well, maybe sometimes.
There--- that’s much better!
A big question of course is:
With many of the 545 missing the virtue of character, will America be here for US and our children? Who knows? But we all sure hope so. Americans must act by throwing out those who do not represent US.
Here is yet an interesting email I received. You may read it below if you are so inclined.
Will America be here for US and our children? Who knows? But we all hope so.
If you are not fed up yet with all the text on this site, hang on to read this next email. I give you the latest email that captured my heart.
Subj: Lying DC Snakes

As I accurately recall, there was a life and death crisis with the bailout, which led to giving money to the corporations who helped create the crisis, with no strings attached. They went out and started buying other banks, giving bonuses, etc., with no accountability. Then we realized it was just a way for Obama to take over the financial industry.
Then we had the stimulus crisis, where the stimulus HAD to pass immediately, without anyone reading it, or we'd all die, or worse! It was going to save jobs. It was going to create jobs. It was going to do all kinds of wonderful things. It had to be passed immediately.
Then we saw that it was being squandered on political paybacks to those who supported Obama. It was being squandered with no accountability. And it created NO jobs, nor did it save many, if any. Not only that, but once Obama had the bill ready to be signed, despite the dire urgency, he didn't sign it for several days!
Yet another LIE! And another power grab.
Obama hasn't released even half of the money, but is holding onto it until he needs it to corrupt [whatever he cannot control without corruption] Obama will be using his Dollars For Votes plan. Our dollars for his votes. Kind of like he did to get Landrieus's vote for cloture on his Commie Care nightmare.
The stimulus turned out to be another power grab by Obama, and remember, it was earth shatteringly urgent, until Obama had the votes.
Coincidentally enough, the same thing happened in the auto bailout, where there was a crisis that precipitated Obama's firing of CEO's and defrauding secured bondholders out of their investments, with no constitutional authority to do so. He restructured GM and gave away Chrysler. He supplanted the interests of the investors, who legally were supposed to be the first to be protected in a bankruptcy, with the unions, who had no right to leapfrog the LAW and end up with a huge equity stake in the company.
Once again, the whole GM bailout was a poorly disguised power grab by the left, and payback to the corrupt, leftist unions. It was of utmost necessity that it be done immediately!!!! Anyone see a pattern here?
Now we come to Obama's Commie Care, and once again, the dire consequences if we don't pass it immediately! Obama, Pelosi, and Reid have indulged in every possible lie and hyperbole to convince the nation of the desperate need for Kevorkian Care, and have failed to convince the majority. So they twisted arms, threatened, and paid senators off to get the bill to the floor, because as we all know, we have to HURRY, yet again.
The strange thing is, like with the stimulus, all of a sudden the Whitehouse, and the leftists who propagandize for them, like Corn, are not in such a hurry anymore. Corn is advising a relaxed pace. Take your time. And so on. Why would that be? What about the dying children with no health care?
Well, as with the other power grabs, the health care scam, which is the largest power grab of all, will take a little time to properly position to get the maximum communistic control.
[Ironically in 2013 as this fiasco hits implementation time, we find that the president lied about keeping your policies, keeping your doctors, and getting a $2500 cost savings. He lied or perhaps he was only kidding to get reelected. But, he repeated the dirge over and over and over. Now, he says that he did not say what he said. Yes, he lies about lies to cover up lies. Finally even the low information voters are seeing him for what he is as healthcare affects their health and their pocketbooks.]
Watching the Marxists in this nightmare, from Corn, to Obama, is like watching a giant Boa Constrictor that is trying to crush and kill a large animal. It is in a hurry to swallow the animal, but must make sure it is dead, and then position it properly for its gluttonous attempt at swallowing it whole. Corn is advising a cold, deliberate pace. No need to get hasty, now that they got the bill to the floor.
Like a snake, the left is big on the quick strike, but once they think the prey is under their control, they can become quite deliberate, even slow in swallowing the victim. Swallowing America's Freedom is not something that can be hurried, and now that the snake is confident it is in control, it is willing to takes it's time, somewhat.
The Progressive snake likes to hurry the kill so it can dine at it's leisure, but it is never really sated regardless the size of meal. The thirst of the left for more and more power is unquenchable.
Cap and Tax is the next thing that their rapacity for power will have their forked tongues flickering over. And it will be urgent, it's the environment! We can't wait, or we'll all die! Blah Blah Blah.............
Some final thoughts on this site
I hope you are not offended by the cartoon pictures of real butts in which, most often are contained assholes. These are not the biological notions of which I speak.
At one time, the webmaster thought that she should permit people to come to this site and pick the biggest asshole in Congress / just a part of the 545 / from a drop down list. The ide was that the people could pick the biggest asshole of the 545 who serve (and I use the term loosely) their constituencies in elected or appointed positions in the Congress, the Presidency, or the Supreme Court.
There would be 546 if anybody would count Joe Biden as being in any particular category. He is not a bad guy. He is actually terrible because even the machinations that he utters are not believed by Joe Biden himself. Otherwise, he would not be permitted on an Army or Navy base.
The concern of the webmaster for this site is “ Have you had enough of the crap yet to complain to the press, to your neighbor, to the Congress?” If not, go someplace else, and when you finally choose to complain, you can come back and read the rest of this site again.
