This is the “The Tan Man”, “John of Orange”. I thought that he’d never stop crying for the first six months after the Grand Obstructionist Party won the Majority. Acting as if he could identify so incredibly well with those that lived without because he started working at age 12, Johnny boy I did too, difference being at 12 I was a pre-teen girl who had to take jobs as a waitress and or Factory, spending a good deal of my time putting my foot in doors when a male manager wanted to speak with me in order to avoid sexual harassment.
I am not a multi millionaire like Boehner, unlike him I’ve yet to forget where I’ve come from, and those much less fortunate than myself. Boehner and the Grand Obstructionists, from the time Obama was elected until they gained the Majority had an incredibly well constructed and deeply strategized plan, “Troops we will say “NO”, that they did repeatedly, even if the bill that was coming to the floor was theirs they All, every SINGLE one, said “No” to every thing every time. They collected our money for their pay and did nothing, nothing especially after Boehner made Speaker, then they allowed everything we protested against or to assure that regardless of gender or race we had choice, women it was choice for different things than persons of cplot but we all marched for over a decade for some things nod they’re trying to remove every right we fought for and won. They’ve allowed this nation to slip back at least 30 – 35 years! I have about 10 months left until I become an Ex-Pat, this isn’t my Nation any longer. My husband, myself and both daughters will probably do the same but we’ll be in 4 different countries.
Hey Boehner where’s the Jobs?

Sign my petition at Change.org, Congressional Reform act of 2011. Read it and if you agree put your John Henry on the line.
