I am not normally political but this senior says it all!!

Saturday, June 18, 2011

Another one of my friends sent me this the other day and asked me to forward it on to 20 more people if I agree---well I kinda do-and I almost did not post this since I try to stay away from political statements of any kind- BUT I mean heck--I've been paying into social security for longer then I can remember!! I really agree with this seniors last paragraph!!!!!!!!!

THIS SENIOR CITIZEN NAILED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alan Simpson, Senator from Wyoming, Co-Chair of Obama's deficit
commission, calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he
compared "Social Security" to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.
August, 2010.

Here's a response in a letter from a unknown fellow in Montana...
I think he is a little ticked off! He also tells it like it is !
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------

"Hey Alan, let's get a few things straight..

1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole for FIFTY
YEARS.

2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15
years old. I am now 63).

3 My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other
Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for
decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give
OUR money to a bunch of zero ambition losers in return for votes, thus
bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme
that would have made Bernie Madoff proud.

4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and your ilk pulled the
proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing
retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to
age 67. NOW, you and your shill commission is proposing to move the
goalposts YET AGAIN.

5 I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare
from Day One, and now you morons propose to change the rules of the
game.. Why? Because you idiots mismanaged other parts of the economy
to such an extent that you need to steal money from Medicare to pay
the bills..

6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes
our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why?
Because you incompetent bastards spent our money so profligately that
you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come
to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.

To add insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for calling "bullshit" on
your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for
YOU.

1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during
your pathetic 50-year political career?

2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and
how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the
American taxpayers?

3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you
proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or, as usual,
have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?

It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called
Congress who are the "greedy" ones. It is you and your fellow
nutcases who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream
from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes.
That's right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole
purpose of advancing your pathetic political careers. You know it, we
know it, and you know that we know it.

And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch.

If you like the way things are in America, delete this. If you agree
with what a fellow Montana citizen says, PASS IT ON!!!!

This would change everything and should be retroactive!

No one has been able to explain why young men and women serve in the U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay. While politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not make any sense.

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. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?

35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government

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."

Miki, where did you get this article? I would like to have a copy. Or at least send it on to others on my email and blog. I draw disability and I worked for 15 years I had to work 2 jobs, yes, 2 jobs because I did not want to ask the government for help with my problems. I have worked for another 14 just one job after I got married. (I married late after my daughter was grown). So, when I needed the help they made me wait almost 4 years w/o no money before they approved it. I almost lost my home, car, everything because I could not work. I worked so much during my younger years I ended up hurting myself in my later years. So, no, I don't feel bad about my check. They got money from me twice a week from both jobs! I only ask what is fair. The money was there until they kept taking it!

Sad state of affairs.I'd like to get my hands on the wonderful health care that politicians get. I wonder how many other people could have afforded the care that Cathy Giffords got for her "injury". I'm glad she's recovering but I bet most of her constituents wouldn't have had the same care.
Great post.

Unbelievable...as it is our senior citizens are getting a pittance, pittance in social security. Especially when you compare it to what Captain Bullshit is getting and going to get. I don't know when and if things will ever change and these people will stop getting so much money and power, every day in the news I hear stories about even local leaders of tiny towns making over 100,000 per year, while the people that are paying taxes and working so hard barely earn enough to eat. It is sickening!

This is so absolutely right... I'm not usually political either, but man, more people need to speak up like that guy.
