The following was sent to me by a dear friend of mine. As a rule I don't use profanity in my blog - but, given this particular situation, I let it slide - just this once - primarily because I totally agree with everything this person said. It's good to know that, contrary to the meanstream press, there are really other people out there who are not buying to the tea-party or the rep-ugh-blicans line of garbage.
I would be interested in your feedback on the following communique.
“Social Security is an entitlement!?”
These are some preliminary comments already received):
"A little truth being spoken. Sent with much love and hope. All I can say to this is...WOW! I hope this is a real letter." "I really like the guy who wrote the letter below." " THIS SENIOR CITIZEN NAILED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
“Social Security is an entitlement!?”>
> "Alan Simpson, (REP-UGH-BLICAN) 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 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 "bullsh-t" on your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullsh-t, 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 Bullsh-t, 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 b---h."
> >If you like the way things are in America, delete this. If you agree with what a fellow Montana citizen says, PASS IT ON!!!!
Well I'm passing it on -
I totally agree with what he said and then some. In fact, I'm sure there are many who could add even more. I just want to put my two cents worth in for those who don't yet get the big picture - the next time you guys in Montana, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma and other states think about voting rep-ugh-blican - DON'T. Just remember who got you into this mess called the economic down turn; remember who is trying to drag you deeper into the swill while they continue to suck the blood out of you ( I guess that's why Vampire stories are so popular in the US, in honor of the blood suckers among us that now permeate congress going under the guise of representatives - but they don't represent you or me. They represent their fellow blood suckers. They are now getting a massive transfusion from our tax dollars and social security.
So, I am co-signing what the fellow said in Montana - and telling you to pass it on to two friends; and have them do the same, and so on and so on; I'd like to see us get a little (read whole lot) more outraged a'la Wisconsin and start pulling them back out of these positions that they now hold before they can do any further damage.
Can you say recall and impeach, boys and girls? It's like the sign of the cross, or sun light - you know Vampires can't stand either of them. So let's shed some light on their true nature, and cross them out of office forever.
We have a lot at STAKE - "STAKE!" GET IT??? Oh, well - so much for vampire folklore.
I, also would be totally remiss if I didn't include this additional piece I received from my friend Judy of Eduadvocate. It seems as if Eric Wattree is also reading my mind. I totally concur with his conclusions. What do you think? Read the following and give me your feedback:
Is the GOP Really America’s Domestic Enemy?
- by Eric Wattree (of course my answer to that question is YES)
"Many of my conservative friends are advising me that by implying that the GOP is a domestic enemy of America that I’m being unnecessarily divisive, and I’m doing myself a disservice. One particularly good friend said, “Contrary to what you and Gordon love to espouse, the GOP is not the 'devil incarnate.' It may be politically convenient and divisive for you to call it that, but it is just not true.”
"Sorry Tom, but I beg to disagree. The fact is, I’m neither implying, espousing, nor equivocating. I’m stating a demonstrable fact. The GOP leadership is un-American, period. And they specialize in holding the American people hostage. Their total disregard for America is made quite evident by the fact that every time the GOP wants to push one of their unpopular initiatives they begin to strangle a segment of the American people for leverage.
Two of the most recent examples of that are the way they held unemployed Americans and first responders hostage in order to push through the extension of the Bush tax cuts to benefit the wealthiest 2% of the population. Thereafter, they threatened to shut down the entire government in an attempt to push through initiatives that would have brought severe hardships upon the poor and middle class.
"Both the methods and propaganda of the GOP are not only un-American, but right out of the Nazi playbook. The GOP leadership has calculated that the more miserable they can keep the American people, the better chance they have of regaining power. That, in turn, would allow them to get on with the business of totally enslaving the American people. So they routinely employ tactics from right out of Joseph Gobbels’ handbook on the effective use of propaganda to keep us so angry and divided that we’re blind to their concerted effort to keep America ignorant, distracted, and miserable."

I dare say I couldn't have said it better myself. And I truly hope Americans are now beginning to wake up to the truth. Those who voted for the Rep-ugh-blicans for the racist reasons of thwarting President Obama, may find that their plans have backfired and are now coming back to bite them in the butt in more ways than one. Also consider everytime the rep-ugh-blicans have had their hands on the US government, they have screwed things up big time - Watergate; the Savings and Loan debacle; the Oil debacle; the silver debacle; mortgage, foreclosure, economic downturn debacle (all by Bushes by the way). And when someone - i.e. President Obama, shows a humane face, and tries to restore - no elevate - America to its purported greatness, you actually allow yourselves to be seduced by these miscreants who have appealed to your baser natures, and let the very Vampires back in that he had gotten rid of.
I could say that you deserve every bit of hell you are about to face; but I live here too, and I'm really not up to going through four years of their crap. So, a word to the wise should be sufficient. The people in Wisconsin should be the beginning of correcting the biggest mid-term election mistake ever in the history of the US. And while we're at it, let's change the Rep-ugh-blican symbol to Snake instead of Elephant. Elephants all over the world have to be really insulted to be hijacked as their symbol. They have done nothing to deserve that. They are loyal, family oriented creatures. Better yet, let's change the symbol to Vulture - more befitting the real nature of their party and their outlook.
Anywaaaay, regardless of the symbol you chose to use for them - let's stop being their victims and have some victories of our own. If your kid, or a neighbor's kid is turning 18, take them personally to register to vote. Make sure all your family members, neighbors and friends are registered. We are going to be dealing with some interim elections prior to Obama's re-election. We have to make sure we stay in the majority from now on. We cannot leave the President hanging and then expect him to make miracles with no back up. We have to be about it 25/8!!!!! Cause when it comes to the Rep-ugh-blicans, 24/7 is not enough!
Take care and
STAY BLESSED &
