Criminal Charges for the President AND Congress!

The following debate originally took place upon the Facebook wall of an acquaintance…

Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, and President Barack Obama

Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, and President Barack Obama

Mike R.: So congress (at least one side of it) is trying to sue the President for sucking at his job. Can we, the people, sue our congress for sucking at EVERYTHING?

Allan W.: No because Congress bought out the lawyers with their pocketbooks, Stupid

:/

Rayn: Criminal charges against both sounds more like it!

Eric B.: Here here they are all retarded

The First 535 Americans to Send to Syria…

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Truth Beckons,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"May I suggest the first 535 we send to Syria?"

“May I suggest the first 535 we send to Syria?”

My Commentary: And, while they’re there , let’s insist that they strictly adhere to all currently-existing US “gun control” laws, too!

The Government Scam Referred to as “Social Security”

The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall…

Jason R.:

"Entitlements? I PAID CASH for my Social Security insurance. Our benefits are NOT some kind of charity or handout! Congressional benefits... premium federal healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days! - Now THAT'S welfare! And they have the nerve to call my retirement an entitlement??? Repost if you are sick and tired of their crap!"

Rayn: Indeed, Jason! Payments for SS/medicare were snatched out of every one of my paychecks without my consent since I was 15 years old! Anyone who would label such an arrangement as an “entitlement,” “charity,” or a “handout” is either sorely mistaken, or outright lying! As for Congressional benefits, I agree 100%. The so-called “public servants” who accept these outrageous “benefits” sure think very highly of themselves compared to the ones they “serve,” eh? Disgusting! And, sadly, a quick examination of the numbers, and the intricacies of the system, shows that the Social Security trust fund worked well enough, mathematically, to leave it as a major target for LOOTING by our own government, time and time again!

This is exactly why Social Security insurance’s biggest failure (besides not being voluntary) has been to put such a precious asset as our nation’s retirement into a single set of thieving, government hands, without our direct, daily, and individual oversight – all under the completely illogical and arrogant notion that “we the people” are unable to be trusted not to steal from ourselves, to understand the math involved in such a system, or even possibly, to have a few different versions of such a system in circulation, to meet the many different needs of the INDIVIDUALS that make up this country!

Speaking of welfare, how about CORPORATE WELFARE? According to the Cato Institute, the U.S. federal government spent $92 BILLION on corporate welfare during fiscal year 2006, alone! And, to add the the egregious nature of this virtual theft, recipients included such companies as BOEING, XEROX, IBM, MOTOROLA, DOW CHEMICAL and GENERAL ELECTRIC!!! Meanwhile, the same politicians that demand reforms for social programs largely REMAIN SILENT on this issue!!!!

The 545 People Responsible for All of America’s Woes (July 2001 version):
http://www.apfn.org/apfn/woes.htm

(Charlie Reese, Orlando Sentinal Star) Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, we have deficits? Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does. You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does. You and I don’t write the tax code. Congress does. You and I don’t set fiscal policy. Congress does. You and I don’t control monetary policy. The Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president and nine Supreme Court justices – 545 human beings out of the 235 million – are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

My Commentary: The math speaks for itself: 545 “representatives” rule over the more than 300 million Americans who make up this nation. Almost none of them have even met us or know us, about half of them are out-of-touch millionaires, and the vast majority could give two shits about our life, liberty and happiness!
