And The Beat Goes On!

This letter was sent to me by one of our readers.
I think it pertains not only to Social Security but also to the New Jersey State Pension Fund. 
Essentially, all governors and their cohorts in the Assembly and Senate from Whittman on, have raided the Fund so as to give the illusion of lower taxes and thereby effectively bought votes with our money.
Like it or not, your money was inessence contributed to the political campaigns of all these politicians so as to help ensure their reelection.
And the sadist part, the beat go on with Christie and his minions in New Jersey government.
Thanks Marguerite for the letter!

This Montana woman stated it quite clearly.
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. And you've spent more than any administration in history.

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 Patty Myers says, PASS  IT ON!!!

Have a wonderful day!

Witnessing the Extinction of an Endangered Species
