Fwd: things to think about

Just in! Hey guys & girls…facts are facts!! This has to make you think a little bit, if not then keep your blinders on!

George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years. The first six the economy was fine. A little over one year ago:

  • Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
  • Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
  • The unemployment rate was 4.5%.
  • The DOW JONES hit a record high–14,000 +
  • American's were buying new cars, taking cruises, vacations over seas, living large!…
  • But Americans wanted 'CHANGE'! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress & yep — we got 'CHANGE' all right.

    In the PAST YEAR:

  • Consumer confidence has plummeted;
  • Gasoline is now over $4 a gallon & climbing!;
  • Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);
  • Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 TRILLION DOLLARS & prices still dropping;
  • 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.

    We may see. I didn't want change, nor do I want to see any more change like this!

    A dose of reality

                    545 PEOPLE
                                                            By Charlie Reese
    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,  WHY do we have deficits?

    Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do 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 bei ngs out of the 300 million  are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

    I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

    I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority.   They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.

    Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing y ou that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

    What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

    The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? She is the leader of the majority party. 
    She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

    It se ems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

    If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.

    If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.

    If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ, it's because they want them in IRAQ.

    If they do not receive 
    social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.

    Comments:  It's true that members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives enjoy a relatively generous government pension plan — some say too generous — but this email rant offers very little else in the way of accuracy. Under a law enacted in 1983, all members of Congress both contribute to and receive benefits from the Social Security system. Upon retirement, members receive either a combination of federal pension and Social Security benefits or Social Security alone, depending upon when their term of service started and how they configured their individual plan.

    Members elected after 1983 pay into the Federal Employees Retirement System. Members elected before 1983 participate in the older Civil Service Retirement Program. In both cases, members of Congress contribute to the plans at a slightly higher rate than ordinary federal employees.

    As of 2002, 411 retired members were receiving benefits under CSRS at an average rate of $55,788 per year and 71 were receiving benefits under FERS (or a combination of CSRS and FERS) with $41,856 per year in average benefits. Members do not automatically received lifetime pensions. How much they receive and how long they receive it depends on many factors, including age, length of service (including military) and choice of plans, etc. So, while it's conceivable that a few may receive pay-outs totalling more than a million dollars by the time they die, they would be the exception, not the rule.


    There are no insoluble government problems.

    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like 'the economy,' 'inflation,' or 'politics' that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

    Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

    They, and they alone, have the power.

    They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.

    We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

    Tax on retirement Income???

    Remember - you younger folks will be there sooner than you think
    :Adding a tax to your retirement is simply another way of saying to the American people, you're so darn stupid that we're going to keep doing this until we drain every cent from you.    That's what the Speaker of the House is saying.   

    Read below...............

    Nancy Pelosi wants a Windfall Tax on Retirement Income.
        In other words tax what you have made by investing toward your retirement. 

    This woman is a nut case!    You aren't going to believe this.

    Madam speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to put a Windfall Tax on all stock market profits including Retirement fund, 401K and Mutual Funds!

     Alas, it is true - all to help the 12 Million Illegal Immigrants and other unemployed Minorities!

    This woman is frightening. 
       She states...   'We need to work toward the goal of equalizing income,

    (didn't Marx say something like this), in our country and at the same time limiting the amount the rich can invest.'  

    (I am not rich, are you?)

    When asked how these new tax dollars would be spent, she replied:
    'We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities.
        For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities.    Stock market windfall profits taxes could go a long way to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as 'Americans'.'  

     Read that quote again and again and let it sink in.   Lower your retirement, give it to others who have not worked as you have for it. 

    Send it on to your friends.
        I just did!   This lady is out of her mind.

    Things to think about

    Can you cry under water?

    How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

    Why do you have to 'put your two cents in'… but it's only a 'penny for your thoughts'? Where's that extra penny going to?

    Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

    Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

    What disease did cured ham actually have?

    How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

    Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up like every two hours?

    If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

    Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV?

    Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

    Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway.

    Why is 'bra' singular and 'panties' plural?

    Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

    If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?

    Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane?

    If the professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can't he fix a hole in a boat?

    Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs!

    If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn't he just buy dinner?

    If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

    If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

    Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

    Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

    Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?
