SOCIAL SECURITY:

Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions during election years.

Our Senators and Congresswomen do not pay into Social Security and, of course, they do not collect from it. You see, Social Security benefits were not suitable for persons of their rare elevation in society. They felt they should have a special plan for themselves So, many years ago they voted in their own benefit plan. In more recent years, no congress person has felt the need to change it. After all, it is a great plan.

For all practical purposes their plan works like this:

When they retire, they continue to draw the same pay until they die.
Except it may increase from time to time for cost of living adjustments. ......

For example, Senator Byrd and Congressman White and their wives may expect to draw $7, 800,000.00 (that's Seven Million, Eight-Hundred Thousand Dollars), with their wives drawing $275, 000..00 during the last years of their lives.
This is calculated on an average life span for each of those two Dignitaries. Younger Dignitaries who retire at an early age, will receive much more during the rest of their lives. Their cost for this excellent plan is $0.00. ZIP!! NADA!!! ZILCH!!! This little perk they voted for themselves is free to them.You and I pick up the tab for this plan. The funds for this fine retirement plan come directly from the General Funds;

"OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK"!

From our own Social Security Plan, which you and I pay (or have paid) into, every payday until we retire (which amount is matched by our employer ), We can expect to get an average of
$1,000 per month after retirement. Or, in other words, we would have to collect our average of $1,000 monthly benefits for 68 years and one (1) month to equal Senator Bill Bradley's benefits!

Social Security could be very good if only one small change were made.

That change would be to:

Jerk the Golden Fleece Retirement Plan from under the Senators and Congressmen. .. Put them into the Social Security plan with the rest of us......

Then sit back.....

And see how fast they would fix it!

If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe good changes will evolve.
2010 is an election year for 1/3 of the senate and 1/2 of the house of representatives. It would be nice if congress got the message; the voting taxpayers are in charge now.

First Ever Blonde GUY joke

The very first ever Blonde GUY joke... And well worth the wait!

An Irishman, a Mexican and a Blonde Guy were doing construction work on scaffolding on the 20th floor of a building.
They were eating lunch and the Irishman said, 'Corned beef and cabbage! If I get corned beef and cabbage one more time for lunch, I'm going to jump off this building.'
The Mexican opened his lunch box and exclaimed, 'Burritos again! If I get burritos one more time I'm going to jump off, too.'
The blonde opened his lunch and said, ' Bologna again! If I get a bologna sandwich one more time, I'm jumping too.'

The next day, the Irishman opened his lunch box, saw corned beef and cabbage, and jumped to his death.
The Mexican opened his lunch, saw a burrito, and jumped, too.
The blonde guy opened his lunch, saw the bologna and jumped to his death as well.
At the funeral, the Irishman's wife was weeping. She said, 'If I'd known how really tired he was of corned beef and cabbage, I never would have given it to him again!'
The Mexican's wife also wept and said, 'I could have given him tacos
or enchiladas! I didn't realize he hated burritos so much.'
(Oh this is GOOD!)
Everyone turned and stared at the blonde's wife. The blonde's wife said,
'Don't look at me. The idiot makes his own lunch.'

Gadhafi is due to address the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday.
Isn't it nice that Donald Trump is entertaining strangers, or should I say terrorists..........?

Whatever...........

Obama, found himself on the defensive, denying the plan breaks his campaign promise not to raise taxes on the middle class and insisting the public insurance option isn’t dead. And his attempt to rally Latino voters around the cause instead was met with sharp questioning from a relative newcomer to the Sunday scene, the Spanish-language network Univision.
Obama broke little new ground in how he tried to sell his own program, which has sharply divided his own party and left many in the public confused and deeply skeptical.

Why NFL Players Go Broke.........

So, figure a player gets drafted in 2009, signs for the minimum and lasts three years in the league: He will have earned about $1.2 million in salary. Factor in taxes, cost of living and the misguided belief that there will be more years and bigger paydays down the road, and it becomes a lot easier to see how so many players struggle with money after their careers end. Nobody plans on playing just three years in the NFL, you know? The average NFL career lasts just three years, you can't buy big fancy homes, cars, expensive clothes and live high on the hog. That's how the money runs out. DUH!

Now What.......

Protesters against US President Barack Obama's health care plan and other policies gather in Washington, DC, on September 12, 2009. American anger at the cost of propping up the US economy will not force Obama to row back on his ambitious health care reform plans, the White House said Sunday.
Protesters against US President Barack Obama's health care ...
Tens of thousands of people have marched from the shadow of the White House to the footsteps of the US Capitol to protest against Obama and what they claim to be his "big government" policies.
I'm sure that many of these people, voted this man into office, and now their angry at the outcome. It's sort of late for them to whine now, they should have watched what they were doing before they put him there.

Health Care.......

While our government is fighting about a form of healthcare, these companies, are languishing in what may turn out to be one of the worst years for people to buy cheap health insurance . What can they do but try to get customers where there is already a saturated market. The government will be making many decisions, that will control how these companies, operate in the future. It is my hope that our government, handles this situation in an amutable manner.

I wonder how the world can keep destroying it's people's homes just to fight wars. These people have nothing to live in, or around. They must depend on help from other sources.

DC Tea Party

Protesters Marched ......

Tens of thousands of protesters fed up with government spending marched to the U.S. Capitol on Saturday, showing their disdain for the president's health care plan with slogans such as "Obamacare makes me sick" and "I'm not your ATM." The line of protesters clogged several blocks near capitol, according to the D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency. Demonstrators chanted "enough, enough" and "We the People." Others yelled "You lie, you lie!" and "Pelosi has to go."

Throngs of people waved U.S. flags and held signs reading "Go Green Recycle Congress." Men wore colonial costumes as they listened to speakers who warned of "judgment day", Election Day 2010. They say unchecked spending on things like a government-run health insurance option could increase inflation and lead to economic ruin.

Exonerees........Get Big Money........

Thomas McGowan's journey from prison to prosperity is about to culminate in $1.8 million, and he knows just how to spend it: on a house with three bedrooms, stainless steel kitchen appliances and a washer and dryer.

"I'll let my girlfriend pick out the rest," said McGowan, who was exonerated last year based on DNA evidence after spending nearly 23 years in prison for rape and robbery.

He and other exonerees in Texas, which leads the nation in freeing the wrongly convicted, soon will become instant millionaires under a new state law that took effect this week.

Exonerees will get $80,000 for each year they spent behind bars. The compensation also includes lifetime annuity payments that for most of the wrongly convicted are worth between $40,000 and $50,000 a year — making it by far the nation's most generous package.

No Taxes.........

Construction is seen Monday, Aug. 24, 2009, in Englewood, N.J., as workers renovate a 25-room mansion owned since 1982 by Libya. Officials are trying to prevent Libyan President Moammar Gadhafi from staying at the mansion in this northern New Jersey suburb.
Libya, hasn't paid and still doesn't pay any taxes on this property. How do they get by with that? Are they getting immunity from paying taxes on property they have owned in this country for years? We the American people don't get that luxury, so why is another country allowed to do this? Remind yourselves, it wasn't very long ago that Gadhafi, was attacking our boats in the harbor at Tripoli. Now he wants to come over here to live.........? With the Lockerbie scandal, and him allowing the guy back into Libya with open arms, I say Gadhafi should burn in hell.

Interesting Solution

This is from an article in the St. Petersburg , FL Times Newspaper on Sunday. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the Economy?" I think this guy nailed it!

Dear Mr. President:

Please find below my suggestion for fixing America 's economy.

Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan..

You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

There are about 40 million people over 50 years old in the work force.

Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire. Forty million job openings -

Unemployment fixed.

2) They MUST buy a new American CAR. Forty million cars ordered-

Auto Industry fixed.

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage-

Housing Crisis fixed.

It can't get any easier than that!

If more money is needed, have all members of Congress and their constituents pay their taxes...
