From a cotton farm, pizza parlor, car salesman...To Congress

We asked for change and we got it!
November hailed a shellacking for the Democrats and a long awaited victory for the Republicans or should I say the Conservatives, thanks to the effect the Tea Party organizations have.   
Of the 107 freshmen elected to the 112th Congress of the United States of America. We acquired 13 NEW Senators and 94 new House of Representative members were sworn in on Wednesday. Of the 13 new Senators only one was a Democrat! The house gained a whopping 85 new Republicans, while the Democrats only gained 9 new Democrats.

These new freshmen are offering us a breath of fresh air and a simplicity our country desperately needs. We want the new Congress to listen to us and understand our plights! We grew tired of all the old Rinos who only wanted for themselves and not our Country, so we ousted them and hired people who respect this country.
Well Patriots, we got it! This New Congress is very diversified, and at least 35 of them have NO EXPERIENCE in politics! Let me introduce you to some of our new Congress members:

These Patriots come from all walks of life: the Republicans gained 5 new Hispanics, 2 Blacks and 8 women!,
We recently elected 6 doctors, 3 car dealers, 2 funeral directors, a former FBI Agent, a pizza restaurant owner... If that's not diversification for us I don't know what is!

Stephen Fincher is a gospel-singing cotton farmer from Frog Jump, Tennessee. He has never been to college or involved in politics. His campaign slogan was "Plow Congress" he flipped a long time Democratic seat to the GOP.

Ex-Philadelphia Eagles lineman Jon Runyan (R-NJ) when questioned about his lack of political experience replied, “Yes, I have no experience raising taxes over and over again. Yes, I have no experience increasing the debt. Do you really think the people who created these problems are going to be able to solve them?”

Newbie Ben Quayle (R-Az) son of Former VP Dan Quayle fought hard for his win through a nine way fight to win his seat. In an ad he called Obama the "worst president ever" then declared “Someone has to go to Washington and knock the hell out of the place.”

College Rodeo star Rick Crawford (R-Ark) gave up rodeo competition after being seriously injured and accumulating large medical bills. He soon became a well-known rodeo announcer, later using that experience to starting his own farm news broadcasting network. The courageous risk taker was a bomb disposal technician during his stint in the US Army.

Billy Long (R-Mi) owns an auction company and hosts a morning radio talk show. He participated in local political campaigns since the age of nine. Little Bear, his dog, helped his campaign tremendously with this trick: Long would ask, "Little Bear, would you rather be a Democrat or a dead dog?" Naturally the little dog responded by rolling over and sticking his feet up in the air! What a good campaign manager.

Our Country has spoken, we have elected a wide variety of people to represent us. With so many local, state and federal government seats being occupied by individuals with little or no political background our Country is sure to change the direction we are heading. These Patriots ran for office with the belief they could change the direction our country. We chose to elect these people for their belief in the U. S. Constitution. With them they bring a diversity of new ideas and hope for a better government.

I welcome all the freshmen and returning members to the 112th Congress and pray we will see some partisanship in the Greatest Country On Earth.



  1. We certainly did elect a lot of total unknowns. Remember Obama was virtually an unknown when he ran for president?
    Hopefully these newcomers will uphold their oat of office and work with and for the people.

  2. Deanie---
    Billy Long hasn't hosted a radio show for several years now.
    Long has NOT been involved in politics since he was 9 years old, his dog has been dead for over 40 years. He was recounting a story that happened when he was nine years old

    Long, also a professional gambler, played his cards right and won with a massive infusion of money.
    He is no tea party patriot, he is interested in only one thing, Billy Long.

  3. ps, Long is represents MO Missouri 7, not Mi Michigan.

  4. You seriously don't believe that tall tale about Billy Long and his dog do ya? Hey the guy is such a patriot, he skipped yesterday's reading of the Constitution and stayed in his office tweeting about who he was meeting in DC while still claiming to be an outsider. A Patriot would have been on the House floor yesterday. Billy Long isn't a Patriot, he's just another bored millionaire trying to get his name on a highway before he dies.

  5. I thought it was a cute story about the dog. I don't really know anything about Billy Long. He will be one of the people who will be watched.

    My next door neighbor ran for the city council and won! He has never in his life been actively involved in politics. I hope all these newcomers live up to their expectations.

  6. I like what Ben Quayle had to say. We need someone to go to DC and kick butts.

  7. Busplunge, look at the bright side, the dog now plays his part very efficiently without being asked. Maybe we can teach Liberals to roll over and play dead. This would sure put our country in a much better position.
    By the way Deanie how old and do you have a picture of the rodeo rider? LOL

  8. Whose butt would you start with abby? They've all been so crooked in the past that it would only be a guess where to begin. The only words of advice I can give you is start with the white house and work down!

  9. I hope the cotton farmer does better than the peanut farmer we had years ago!
    Our country deserves better than what we thought we have elected, and I am glad to see the rinos leaving office. I think a lot of these new people will really work with the citizens.

  10. Cotton farmer, rodeo star, mortician whatever. I'm more interested in the pizza owner. I would love to have a double pepperoni with olives and anchovies sent over. At least we know he could handle this, time will only tell what he does in congress.

  11. Let's keep our eyes on all the members of congress. The new ones have to learn the ropes of life in DC and the rinos will be there to lead them in the wrong direction. Hopefully the newbies will not be swayed by the power hungry and they will maintain their honesty and values they were voted in for.

  12. It looks like they're learning the ropes, Wes. They're locked in their offices hiding under their desks. Maybe we could all pitch in and send each of them a can of pepper spray, this could give them the courage to go back to work.

  13. I am looking forward to this new congress and really like the idea of so many common folks getting involved in the running our our government.

    My prayers are with the victims and their families of the Tuscon massacre.
