Government "For" the People? Really?

You know that old 'of the people, by the people....' that Lincoln intoned. Well, he was wrong.

Two different instances surfaced today (and the water-pun is felicitous.)

First, in Georgia. It's been raining there; deadly rain, with floods. However, it broke the drought which had prevailed for quite some time, thus going quite a ways towards re-filling Lake Lanier, which served as the reservoir for Atlanta.

Oooops! Nope. (See combox at the link)

...a Federal judge told them they can't use Lake Lanier as a reservoir anymore. They're planning to flood Dawson Forest [instead].

After umpty-years as the reservoir, providing potable water, ......oh, well. Too bad. You're just people.

Second, in California:

Jim DeMint offered up an amendment to the Department of Interior’s budget appropriations to sidestep stupid environmental studies about a minnow that a judge used to stop water flow in California’s Central Valley, where 50% of the US fruits and veggies are grown.

DeMint's amendment was defeated.

The Central Valley's drought-problem has resulted in multiple bankruptcies for growers, up to a 40% unemployment rate in the Valley, and will serve to increase the price of fruits and veggies across the country. But Big Green and "our" Government value the 3" minnow more.

Fish 1, "the people" 0.

The TEA Parties are NOT just about Obama. Never were, and never WILL be. They are about bloated-Blob Government(s) whose priorites are completely out of line with the priorities of the citizens of the country.

American Common Interest
It is with much regret that I deliver this message to you today. However, the common interest of America is at risk.
We have a Strong Body of individualism being applied against the American people. This Body is of great power and vast with hundreds of thousands members across the Globe. We have become defenseless in the wake of their strength. Therefore, we are forced to watch while our Brothers and Sisters are murdered and some stripped of their jobs and left destine for poverty and prejudice. Some have experienced this injustice and have a personal desire to bring forth justice while others who are distant, remain neutral in their thoughts and actions. It is not that we consciously chose a neutral position; it is a simple matter of programming. We the majority have become accustomed to our present state of awareness and unknowingly surrendered to individualism, in short, we have programmed our minds to accept the evil malicious acts that surround us. It is the majority acceptance that gives strength to this Strong Body of individualism. Therefore, a complete absence of majority acceptance is certain to diminish their strength. We must break away from our present state of mind and begin a new training. We must see through the distractions that are designed to blind us; prejudices, poverty and Wars, all designed to divide us resulting in chaos and disorder. Our direction is controlled by the media and they control the media. Our leaders spend 50 billion dollars a year on the war against drugs, and 60 billion on the War against terror. They announced on September 10th that they were unable to account for 2.3 trillion dollars and in addition we have a rapidly growing U.S.National debt that is presently 10,664,478,340,753.90 dollars. We must question everything. Question your thoughts, do not accept them. Question the events that surround you, do not ignore them. Search for the truth, do not accept untruth. Refrain from acting out anger hence, maintaining order. We must follow our hearts and embrace our soul’s to unveil the identities of this Strong Body of individualism.
It would be premature for me to share their name and expect you to accept it as truth. You research, you decide.
You have one decision to make; will you enter into a Universal Community of Body and Soul (UCBS) to form a resistance against individualism entities?

Our Government,

Why do We the People of the United States of America do nothing while we are slowly destroyed from within? The answer is embedded within each of us, the answer is Moral Values. To do the right thing is the American way, it’s what we do, it‘s what we were taught by our Parent‘s, Teachers and Fore Father‘s. For us to correct what is wrong would mean to open our eyes to the values instilled in us. One has to wonder what it takes to elude what one knows to be morally correct. What if you were President of The United States of America and you were briefed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff on a possible threat of Oil shortages due to troubling relationships with Irac. What would you do? Would you stage a Terrorist attack and kill thousands of innocent Americans? Would you justify your actions as Collateral Damage? After all who wouldn’t sacrifice 3000 lives and counting, for the good of the whole Country. Right? Is it possible for one of us to be persuaded to carry out such immoral acts? The answer to this question is obvious.
What do we do? Why do we fear our Government? Why does the Author of this letter choose to remain anonymous? Since that horrible day there has been countless attempts from American people petitioning our Government to allow a independent investigation to determine the cause of so many oddities. Why not allow a in depth study of each unexplained detail? The Commission admits to unexplained events and instead of digging deeper looking for answers the unexplained events are dropped. The truth stands beside honorable men while a lie hides behind evil cowards. The amount of credible evidence that has surfaced and is left just sitting there ignored by our Justice system is astounding. A homicide detective is very precise and thorough and he leaves no rock unturned in his effort to put the murderer behind bars. Why then has this so called investigation left so many rocks unturned, untouched and unseen? We have had Government appointed officials fired for speaking out and other citizens efforts quickly subdued with anonymous death threats. How can this be explained, what does this tell us? It couldn’t be more obvious that the truth is being concealed and our efforts seeking the truth are kept at bay with fear tactics. Our Government is correct in that the American people will accept whatever they say to be the truth. They know that for us to believe the opposite would destroy our comfort zones. Which brings us back full circle to Moral Values. It is sad to say but, if we continue to up hold the same Moral Values that has allowed our Government to murder at will, then we too are stained with the blood of the innocent.

Some will read this in mockery and say, “This guy is a loony. He’s been watching to much TV.” This denial felt by many is justification for their Moral Values and keep’s them within their comfort zone. However, lying in the deepest chamber of their heart is the terrifying truth that will someday surface.

O divine art of subtlety and secrecy! Through you we learn to be invisible, through you inaudible; and hence we can hold the enemy's fate in our hands." (Sun Tzu)

"Warfare is the art of deceit. Therefore, when able, seem to be unable; when ready, seem unready; when near-by, seem far away; and when far-away, seem near. If the enemy seeks some advantage, entice him with it...Attack where he is not prepared: go by way of places where it would never occur to him you would go."

"If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, seperate them."

"The control of a large force is the same principle as the control of a few men: it is merely a question of dividing up their numbers."

"So in war, the way is to avoid what is strong and strike at what is weak."

"Water shapes it's course according to the nature of the ground over which it flow's. Therefore, just as water retains no constant shape, so in warfare there are no constant conditions."
