Charley Reese's Final Column

We Posted this story because maybe we CAN DO SOMETHING About it!
Please visit out site after reading this story at

Charley Reese's Final Column
A very interesting column.. COMPLETELY NEUTRAL
Be sure to Read the Poem at the end.

Charley Reese's final column for the Orlando Sentinel...
He has been a journalist for 49 years.
He is retiring and this is HIS LAST COLUMN.

Be sure to read the Tax List at the end.

This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican or democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day. It's a short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!

545 vs. 300,000,000 People
-By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do 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 equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded t he 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 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 legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.

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 a Speaker, who stood up an d criticized the President 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 and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House now? He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the 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 Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it's because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ...

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.

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 th is power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists 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 the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees...

We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

Charlie Reese is a former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.

What you do with this article now that you have read it.... is up to you.
This might be funny if it weren't so true.
Be sure to read all the way to the end:

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table,
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax h is pay,
He works for
peanuts anyway!

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid...

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
'Taxes drove me
to my doom...'

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

Building Permit Tax
CDL license Tax

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom
, if agreed, stayed home to raise the kids.
What in the heck happened? Can you spell 'politicians?'
I hope this goes around THE USA at least 545 times!!! YOU can help it get there!!!

I Rescued a Human Today!

This very touching article was emailed to us from our Friend and Veterinarian Dr. Elizabette Cohen.
We thought we would share it with our friends too!

I rescued a human today.

I wish I knew who the author of this is, but I don't. I'm sending it to all who love animals and hope that you will do the same. Scroll down...............



Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.

As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.

As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life.

She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.

A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

I rescued a human today.

Re: Banning the sale of Pets?... NO!

Perhaps we should tackle the ROOT of the problem - Abusive practices by commercial breeders.
How? Well, THAT'S the real problem.
More Inspectors/Inspections? A registry of approved facilities? Perhaps public web-cam access for facilities over a certain size? (NOT the family/small breeder). Most people would not have a problem with the sale of pets as long as the pets AND the parents of the pets were treated properly. We just have to figure out how to make that happen.

The problem is not with the consumers - it's with the suppliers.

An analogy: If a manufacturer of Peanut Butter is found to have produced a product which is contaminated with Salmonella (which has happened), or if a manufacturer's facilities are found to be in violation of health codes, they are required to take action (fix the problems) or be shut down. This is the suppliers problem. If you wanted to make it the consumers problem, you would push for legislation to make it illegal to sell peanut butter (thereby putting the manufacturer/supplier out of business), or take other restrictive actions directed at the consumer end. This is what appears to be happening in the pet business - It should NOT be made illegal to sell pets - It should be illegal to operate a kennel or facility in which animals are abused and/or not provided with basic care and necessities!!!

Why Good Dogs end up in Shelters!!!

Here is an interesting article on Dog Shelters.
Visit our site at;

    An estimated 3.7 million cats and dogs are euthanized in the United States annually. Unlike shelter numbers in the 1960s, there are far fewer puppies being put to sleep today. There is a demand for puppies in many shelters. Many shelters in the U.S. have to bring in dogs from shelters in other parts of the country where shelters are still overcrowded. Thanks to the success of educational programs about spaying and neutering, an estimated 75 percent of owned dogs in the U.S. are spayed/neutered. Shelters and rescue groups also import several hundred thousand stray puppies and dogs from out of the country to put up for adoption in the U.S. each year. All of this means that the dogs that you find in animal shelters today are different from the dogs that you once found in shelters.

Many of the dogs in shelters today are there because they are owner turn-ins.

Here is a list from The National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy of the top ten reasons given by people for surrendering their pets:
• Requests for euthanasia because of illness (7.4%)
• Moving (7.3%)
• Found animal (of unknown origin) (6.6%)
• Landlord will not allow pets (5.3%)
• Owner has too many animals (4.8%)
• Euthanasia because of animal's age (4.6%)
• Cost of maintenance of pets (4.1%)
• Animal is ill (4.1%)
• Allergies within the family (3.98%)
House soiling (3.37%)
You can also add things like other behavior problems and personal problems (divorce, death, etc.). This list would account for about half of the euthanizations in the U.S. Many good pets would die for the reasons on this list.
Some of the most common reasons for owners to turn their dogs in to shelters include things like housebreaking problems and allergies. These are both preventable. Any dog can be housetrained. It’s much easier if the owner begins when the dog is a puppy and works with him consistently. Some Toy dogs are hard to housebreak but even they can learn. If you have allergies to dogs you need to do your homework before you get a dog to choose the right breed for you so you can find dogs that may be good candidates from the point of view of coat and dander requirements. It’s not possible to walk into an animal shelter and simply pick out a nice dog if you have allergies. You have to carefully research which breed and individual dog might work in your situation.
Other common behavior problems include excessive barking, tearing up furniture, digging, chewing things like woodwork, digging or tearing up carpet, jumping up on people, and so on. Although frustrating, there are solutions for all of these behavior issues. But they can land a good dog on death row in an animal shelter.
A large percentage of the dog population in most animal shelters is comprised of bully breed dogs -- the so-called “pit bulls.” The bully breeds have been so maligned by the media that most people are afraid to adopt one. Annual statistics show that mixed breed dogs and Lab mixes (which are abundant) are much more likely to be involved in a dog bite incident than a bully breed dog but the media sensationalizes stories involving the bully breeds.
Far less than a quarter of the dogs in animal shelters are purebred dogs. Breeders try to screen and match good owners for their puppies before they place them. Good breeders also provide help and advice for owners after they buy a puppy. This means that many owners are helped along the way and their puppies never develop the behavior problems that some adolescent dogs develop. Good breeders also act as a safety net for the puppies they produce. Many are willing to take a puppy back later in life if the owner is experiencing problems and can’t keep the dog.
Purebreds also have the added backup of purebred rescue programs. Many times if the owner of a purebred dog can’t keep him the owner will contact a purebred rescue organization for help in finding the dog a new home. This means that most purebred dogs in need never see the inside of an animal shelter. Each breed has its own rescue contacts and they usually try to work with animal shelters in case a shelter does find a purebred dog. You can find information about purebred rescue groups online.
There are many great dogs in animal shelters today. You may find fewer young puppies than at one time because owners are taking information about spaying and neutering pets to heart. But you can find some puppies in shelters and many dogs that are a few months old. Some dogs in shelters may have been turned in by owners and are looking for a new home. You can help provide them with a second chance. Everyone needs a second chance now and then.
