This is a little off-topic. However there is a national movement gaining momentum that is "a coalition of citizens and organizations concerned about the recent trend of fiscal recklessness in government."
If you are raging mad about the recent federal government fiscal recklessness, then log on to: http://newamericanteaparty.com/ (also in the sidebar).
We the tax payers need to hold our elected officials accountable whether it is at the city, county, state, or federal level. Even though the Erie County Clerk of Courts elected position is just a "lowly county" position, I'm doing my part to expose the waste and total lack of mismanagement in this county office which is literally throwing our tax money away an initial estimate to be in the millions of dollars over the past 20 years.
What are you doing to address these issues in government? Plan to do SOMETHING. Don't just sit back and bitch about how bad things are and that they are getting worse; take action by picking an area to take up YOUR "American Tea Party."
This Remove Barb Johnson site is one of our local "American Tea Parties." Hopefully more will spring up.
Perhaps we can all start by sending our elected officials a tea bag in the mail. I think they'll get the message.
