A friend of mine emailed this to me today. Hope this isn't a repost. Some of you may enjoy this, others will not. Either way, I am not taking a side or position on this topic, so don't hate.
Some of us witnessed the arrogance of Barbara Boxer (CA) as she admonished a brigadier general because he addressed her as "ma'am," and not "Senator" before a Senate hearing. This letter is from a National Guard aviator and Captain for Alaska Airlines.
-You were so right on when you scolded the general on TV for using the term, "ma'am," instead of "Senator.' After all, in the military, "ma'am" is a term of respect when addressing a female of superior rank or position.The general was totally wrong.You are not a person of superior rank or position. You are a member of the one of the world's most corrupt organizations, the US Senate, equaled only by the US House of Representatives.
-Congress is a cesspool of liars, thieves, inside traders, traitors, drunks (one who killed a staffer, yet is still revered), criminals, and other low level swine who, as individuals (not all, but many), will do anything to enchace their lives, fortunes and power, all at the expense of the People of the United States and its Constitution, in order to be continually re-elected. How many of you could honestly says, "We pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor?" None? One? Two?
-Your reaction to the general shows several things. First is your abysmal ignorance of all things military. Your treatment of the general shows you to be an elitist of the worst kind. When the general entered the military (as most of us who served) he wrote the government a blank check, offering his life to protect your derriere, now safely and comfortably ensconced in a 20 thousand dollar chair, paid for by the general's taxes. You repaid him for this by humiliating him in front of millions.
-Second is your puerile character, lack of sophistication, and arrogance which borders on the hubristic. This display of brattish behavior shows you to be a virago, termagant, harridan, nag, scold or shrew, unfit for your position, regardless of the support of the unwashed, uneducated masses who have made California into the laughing stock of the nation.
-What I am writing, Senator, are the same thoughts countless millions of Americans have towards Congress, but who lack the energy, ability or time to convey them. Under the democrats, some don't even have the 44 cents to buy the stamp. Regardless of their thoughts, most realize that politicans are pretty much the same.
-Finally Senator, I, too, have a title. It is. "Right Wing Extremist Potential Terrorist Threat." It is not of my choosing, but was given to me by your Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano. And you were offended by "ma'am?"
Sparknotes- Boxer was offended someone called her ma'am and not Senator, and humiliated a general in front of millions, and this letter was written to her to show her ignorance and how corrupt the Senate is.
