Politicians Are the the Most Dangerous Class of Freeloaders!

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

"Democrats are worried about these 'freeloaders' Republicans are worried about these 'freeloaders' And I'm here like, what about these freeloaders?"

“Democrats are worried about these ‘freeloaders’
Republicans are worried about these ‘freeloaders’
And I’m here like, what about these freeloaders?”

My Commentary: Got sense?

No Responsibility, Accountability, or Credibility

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “The Art of Not Being Governed,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"Don't blame me, blame Congress. I don't make the laws; I just enforce them. I'm just following orders. I just voted for the lesser of two evils. - Democratic Republics and the cycle of passing the buck."

“Don’t blame me, blame Congress. I don’t make the laws; I just enforce them. I’m just following orders. I just voted for the lesser of two evils. – Democratic Republics and the cycle of passing the buck.”

My Commentary: No responsibility. No accountability. No credibility.

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!"

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!!!!
