    Charlie Daniels’ open letter to Congress: You’re a ‘bunch of sold-out, jaded, burned-out hacks’

    By Jessica Chasmar - The Washington Times - Wednesday, August 26, 2015

    "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" hit-maker Charlie Daniels posted a lengthy rant on Facebook Monday blasting Congress as "a breed of milksop, politically correct, scared of their own shadow, pushover, pathetic excuses for public servants."

    "You don't even have the courage to face down an out of control president, even when he makes a deal with the devil," the country music star wrote, referring to President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran. "Don't you bunch of timid capons even care what kind of world you're leaving to your children and grandchildren, not to even mention the rest of us? Are you really party partisans before you're parents and grandparents or even human beings?

    "You have allowed Obama to tilt the Supreme Court so far to the left that they're little more than a shameful extension of the Executive Branch," Mr. Daniels wrote. "You have talked for decades about the porous southern border but have done absolutely nothing about it. You have allowed cities in this nation to declare themselves sanctuary cities where they protect the worst of the worst criminal aliens, American citizens paying an awful price for your silence.

    "You watch an impossible National Debt balloon completely out of control knowing full well that a day of reckoning is coming that will seriously curtail the quality of life for coming generations," he continued. "You allow corrupt government agencies like the IRS to run over the very people you are sworn to protect and allow the entitlement society to expand exponentially while you actually entertain the idea of raising taxes on those who still work and shoulder the burden.

    "I wish you bunch of sold-out, jaded, burned-out hacks would just go home and let some people who still have some vision and whose consciences haven't been seared past the point of reminding them when they're wrong take over and start to claw this nation back on to the path of sanity," Mr. Daniels wrote. "Your ratings are in the single digits, your morals are in the gutter, your minds are on self-preservation and somewhere along the way you traded your honor for political expediency. You've violated your oaths, you've betrayed your country you've feathered your nests and you've sat on your hands while an imperial president has rubbed your noses in the dirt time after time. You're no longer men, you're puppets, you're caricatures, jokes, a gaggle of fading prostitutes for sale to anybody who can do you a political favor."

    The Grammy Award winner concluded his post by offering prayers for U.S. troops and "the peace of Jerusalem."

    I would tend to think Charlie called all Congress members worthless. If that was his intention, I totally agree but would have included all who have "served" in Congress since 1980. What else can ones who do nothing good while drawing huge pay be called, however it is cut the answer is worthless.

    What Charlie makes plain is we are again focusing upon the presidential race, when we should be concentrating upon purging congress of rats. To complete that takes a minimum of 6 years, so 2016 is a good place to start. AND,DO NOT REPEAT THE ERRORS OF 2014! That means, "Do not believe any republican promises to be sure of yourselves. Best philosophy, whether D or R if they have held any political office, likely they are not a qualified choice!! However, very likely to be a well trained liar.
