Alan Simpson Obama deficit commission Co-Chair, Senior citizens Greediest Generation, Social Security Milk Cow with 310 million teats

Alan Simpson Obama deficit commission Co-Chair, Senior citizens Greediest Generation, Social Security Milk Cow with 310 million teats

This was sent to me from a friend:

“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.

Here’s a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana … I think she is a little ticked off! She 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 agree with what a fellow Montana citizen Patty Myers says, PASS IT ON!!!!”

By the way Alan, I am pissed too!

I am very close in age and work longevity to Patty, but I would like to add the following. In the early to mid seventies, when most businesses did not have computer systems, the company I worked for processed payroll for other companies. I made many of the tax changes. It seemed like every year for a while that the government raised the rate of the Social Security Tax. Every time I made that change I, too, was pissed. This was a contract we had no choice in and that got changed at the whim of the federal government without our consent. To add insult to further injury, along the way they upped the early retirement age without our consent from 59 1/2 to 62. Every reasonable study ever conducted indicates that the same money put in the most conservative private fund would yield an enormously higher return.

Social Security has been a Ponzi Scheme from the beginning.

So, Alan Simpson and any other idiot member of congress. You had damn well better watch what you say and do.

Millions of Americans are pissed!

Alan Keyes to Republicans, Lower debt, Refuse to raise the debt ceiling, House Republicans chastised

Alan Keyes to Republicans, Lower debt, Refuse to raise the debt ceiling, House Republicans chastised

From World Net Daily February 7, 2011.

“Former GOP presidential candidate and Reagan administration official Alan Keyes has joined the ranks of those calling on House Republicans to reject another hike in the debt limit that will permit the federal government to keep borrowing money to propel its spending programs.

He joins Sens. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., and Pat Toomey, R-Pa., and Reps. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., Ron Paul, R-Texas, and Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., in rejecting House Speaker John Boehner’s concession to raise the debt limit, which is expected to be reached toward the end of next month.

“We should demand of our representatives in Congress that they refuse to raise the debt ceiling,” said Keyes. “But we must also demand of ourselves that we refuse any longer to choose our political leaders from candidates produced by political parties intrinsically dependent on political vehicles fueled by unbridled government spending. Where politics is concerned, restoring the ceiling must be just the first expression of our determination to rebuild, as a home for responsible freedom, the house of constitutional liberty our forsworn elites are determined to destroy.”

Shock the Washington establishment by participating in the “No More Red Ink” campaign and shut down all new plans for bailouts, “stimulus” spending and even the funding for Obamacare.

Keyes, whose coming book, “And Crown Thy Good: Restoring America’s Covenant in 2012,” will address the issue, said Boehner tipped his hand late last year when he spoke to House Republicans sent to Washington by Americans fed up with business as usual in Washington: “We’re going to have to deal with it as adults,” Boehner instructed his colleagues. “Whether we like it or not, the federal government has obligations and we have obligations on our part.”

“U.S. government finance has evidently become a Ponzi scheme predicated upon access to fresh streams of borrowed capital,” said Keyes. “If done in ignorance, we might excuse the scheme as childish. Otherwise, we call it crooked, and treat adults who knowingly perpetrate it as criminals. Many of those who voted Republican in 2008 are demanding an end to precisely this kind of institutionalized chicanery. Sadly they may have cast their votes in vain. Of course, in order to mask the fact that the Republicans mean to go on with ‘business as usual’ GOP leaders are claiming instead that it’s ‘business as necessary.’ Naturally, the Obama faction Democrats heartily agree.”

Keyes continues: “They agree because what’s happening isn’t child’s play, it is power play. The GOP leaders blather about ‘meaningful cuts in government spending,’ but as I’ve pointed out before neither wing of the sham two-party system can have any intention of fundamentally curbing the U.S. government’s appetite for the nation’s resources. The political power of both parties depends on it. They won’t give up that power until the force of circumstances compels them to do so.”

Keyes made his comments in support of a plan led by Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND, to persuade House Republicans to defy their own leadership and refuse to raise the debt limit – an act that will force government to live within its means.

Called the “No More Red Ink” campaign, it empowers America citizens to send messages to every member of the House Republican caucus inexpensively and efficiently – with guaranteed delivery by Fed Ex.”

112th Congress sworn in, Oath of office, US Constitution, Natural born citizen vs citizen

112th Congress sworn in, Oath of office, US Constitution, Natural born citizen vs citizen

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

The 112th Congress was sworn in yesterday, January 5, 2011 using this oath of office.

“I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

If any members of Congress do not understand this part:

“support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;”

Please let us know.

Also, if you do not know the difference between citizen and Natural Born Citizen, and why the founding fathers chose this special clasification of citizen with two US Citizen parents, let us know. We will explain it to you.

John Boehner is sworn in as Speaker of the House. In his speech he dedicates the 112th Congress to following the will of the American People and US Constitution. I heard John Boehner’s speech yesterday after he became Speaker of the House. I smiled then. As I watched the video and listened to his words, I came close to tears myself. Tears are not a bad thing. Apathy is.

Supreme Court Justice Scalia will teach the first class of Constitution 101.

Justice Scalia, would you please spend a little extra time on the Natural Born Citizen provision in the Constitution.

From the Citizen Wells US Constitution Hall of Shame begun in 2008.

 Senator Mike Crapo

“The Constitution and federal law require that, among other things,
only native-born U.S. citizens (or those born abroad, but only to
parents who were both American citizens) may be President of the
United States.”

“Furthermore, both the Director of
Hawaii’s Department of Health and the state’s Registrar of Vital
Statistics recently confirmed that Mr. Obama was born in Honolulu,
Hawaii on August 4, 1961 and, as such, meets the constitutional
citizenship requirements for the presidency.”

 Senator Barbara Mikulski (The most grossly inaccurate response)

“The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution states that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.” Since President-elect Obama was born in Hawaii two years after it was admitted as the 50th state, he is a natural-born citizen. He has released a copy of his birth certificate and it has been authenticated by experts. Following Obama’s overwhelming and undisputed victory in the recent election, the Supreme Court has considered challenges to his citizenship and dismissed them as being without merit.”

 Senator Harry Reid

“Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961, in
Honolulu, Hawai’i. His birth certificate is a matter of public record
of the State of Hawai’i and is available online through various news
sources, as well as on the Web site for the nonpartisan, nonprofit
Annenberg Political Fact Check: http://www.factcheck.org

 Representative Steven LaTourette

” The Secretary of State of each state holds the responsibility of
verifying that each presidential candidate meets the requirements as
outlined in the U.S. Constitution.”

 Senator John Cornyn

“The consequences
of continued inaction are too great. It is imperative that Congress
act quickly to secure our borders, reform our country’s immigration
laws, modernize healthcare, and promote energy independence. You may
be certain that I will continue to pursue conservative initiatives
that reinforce the principles upon which our country was founded
while holding the new Administration accountable to the American
people.”

Representative James Sensenbrenner

“As you may know, the Senate unanimously passed S.Res.511, recognizing
that Senator McCain is a natural born citizen. This measure came about
in response to questions that were raised with respect to Sen. McCain’s
eligibility due to the fact that he was born outside of the United
States to U.S. citizens while his father was serving in the U.S.
military. In President-elect Obama’s case, such legislation was not
deemed necessary because claims that Mr. Obama is constitutionally
ineligible for the nation’s highest office are unfounded. No credible
evidence has surfaced to call into question his eligibility to run.”

Some of the members of Congress need more than Constitution 101. Perhaps they need.

Read Comprehension 101.

Integrity 101.

Give a damn 101.

As soon as these congressmen are sworn in, let’s help them with their education. Make certain they are up to speed about:

LTC Terry Lakin.

Obama eligibility issue facts.

Congress will listen, Obama eligibility, Congress derelict in duty in 2009, Listen or we will vote you out

Congress will listen, Obama eligibility, Congress derelict in duty in 2009, Listen or we will vote you out

“Why has Obama, for over 2 years, employed numerous private and government attorneys to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans

Despite numerous red flags in 2008, the US Congress in January 2009 was derelict in it’s duty, as part of the checks and balances, to question the eligibility of Barack Obama when the electoral votes were presented. Here are some of the more prominent red flags.

  • Despite the controversy about John McCain being eligible and the Senate resolution which stated that McCain had two US Citizen parents and the fact that Obama’s father was Kenyan and British, Obama was not questioned about his natural born citizen status.
  • Obama never presented a legitimate birth certificate and began using private attorneys to avoid presenting one.
  • Obama’s past was closely tied to Tony Rezko and other Chicago corruption figures. The Tony Rezko trial ended by mid 2008.
  • Numerous radical and socialist ties to Obama were public knowledge.

Congress was clearly derelict in it’s duty. Since Congress did not do it’s constitutional duty, the US Military has stepped in. Three generals have questioned Obama’s eligibility and LTC was court martialed for disobeying an illegal order to deploy. All because the US Congress failed us.

No more.

This will no longer be tolerated. A new effort is underway to get the attention of Congress and insist that they do their job. This past November election should serve as notice of our resolve. They will listen and do their job or we will vote them out!

New members of Congress recently received indoctrination on how Congress works. If past results are any indication, forget everything you heard unless it pertained to…

  • Uphold and defend the US Constitution. It is the supreme law of the land.
  • Support the military.
  • Listen to the public and act like you have some damn sense.

Most in the military take their oath to defend the US Constitution seriously. One military officer, LTC Terry Lakin, is living that oath.

THANK YOU to everyone for the tremendous response and participation in “Terry Lakin Action Week”- your phone calls and messages are making a difference. We apologize to anyone who hasn’t received a response yet back to an email- we do our best to keep up, but it is hard sometimes to keep abreast of all requests and comments received.
 
PLEASE KEEP UP THE PRESSURE- PHONE CALLS TO ELECTED OFFICIALS MATTER- AND A SPECIAL THANKS TO THOSE OF YOU WHO WALKED INTO CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT OFFICES TO RAISE YOUR VOICE IN SUPPORT OF LTC LAKIN.
 
Just this week, there were significant new developments on the eligibility front:
A state legislator in Texas introduced a bill requiring presidential candidates to file birth certificates- with the notable comment below:
 
“This bill is necessary because we have a president whom the American people don’t know whether he was born in Kenya or some other place,’ Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, said in reference to President Barack Obama and of House Bill 295. ‘If you are running for president or vice president, you’ve got to show here in Texas that you were born in the United States and the birth certificate is your proof.
http://lubbockonline.com/local-news/2010-11-17/birth-certificate-bill-filed-presidential-candidates
 
AND— former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, in an interview in Anchorage pointed out the failure to vet Barack Obama in 2008:
 
Sarah Palin chatted with KWHL’s Bob and Mark Show to discuss the re-release of John Ziegler’s documentary How Obama Got Elected and her travelogue series, telling Bob and Mark that the hagiographic coverage of Obama in 2007-8 is now “coming home to roost”:
 
We know that Obama wasn’t vetted through the campaign, and now, you know, some things are coming home to roost, if you will, which is inexperience, his associations, and that ultimately harms our republic when a candidate isn’t – isn’t vetted by the media, that cornerstone of our democracy. So, you’re right, it’s not about me and whether you like my politics or not. You can push all that aside, and just pay attention to what that message is in this documentary, and that is that things have got to change for the better in the state of journalism. Otherwise, you know, it could be part of a demise of our democracy if that cornerstone erodes.

High ranking military officers are speaking out, questioning Obama’s eligibility and at least one general has called for Obama’s resignation. If you were in Congress in  2008 and 2009 and bought in to the Orwellian lies from the media and Obama camp and the hustle from Obama, pay attention and admit that you made a mistake. If you are not willing to trust members of the military like LTC Terry Lakin, then pay attention to this.

Obama the hustler.

“Bartle Bull, lifelong liberal Democrat, Civil Rights Attorney, called Obama a “hustler.””

(From Atlas Shrugs)

“The Biggest Hustle in Human History”

“Is the President’s resume accurate when it comes to his career and qualifications? I can corroborate that Obama’s “teaching career” at Chicago was, to put it kindly, a sham.

I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back, and he did not have many nice things to say about “Barry.” Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn’t even considered. A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find him an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach. The Board told him he didn’t have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct.

The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool. According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement).

Consider this: 1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a “lawyer”. He surrendered his license back in 2008 possibly to escape charges that he “fibbed” on his bar application. …”

“Curiously, since I relayed a report of Obama’s “teaching career” at Chicago (he was apparently never a law professor, as some have claimed), the Illinois Bar has decided to partially redact what little public information it had available on its website related to the President’s legal status.”
