The Bleat Goes On: No Con-Con!; Gurus;

Way Down Upon the Swami: Woody recollectz:
Back in the "day" (late 60s/early 70s), when the Beatles were making regular pilgrimages to India, and Ravi Shankar was on am radio, you couldn't swing a dead cat on ANY campus in the USofA without tangling it in the beard of some guru, swami or other South Asian soi-disant "mystic."
Mostly, after you got to know 'em, what they were interested in was boinking hippie chicks (my then-girlfriend among them), "generous" financial support, and expensive cars, pretty much in that order.

Con Con-Con: Woody fearlessly declarez:
Friends, you may think you do, but I promise you:
YOU DO NOT WANT a constitutional convention unless you are prepared to see even such tenuous, slender, shaky, fragile, ephemeral "protections" we now enjoy evaporate into the maw of the CorpoRatocracy.
Do not even CONSIDER the prospect.
Do you REALLY REALLY think the Citizens United effect wouldn't apply to the process? That the Owners would NOT use the opportunity to cancel the vestiges of freedom of speech, assembly, etc. 
Do you REALLY believe any personal protections would survive?
Chuy, jodido!
Children of a congress member do not have to pay back their college student loans. How nice! 
Monday on Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. 
Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention. 
This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on. 
This is an idea that we should address. 
For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform... in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop. 
If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around. 
Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ."
