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
Social Security 2009
LET US SHOW OUR LEADERS IN WASHINGTON "PEOPLE POWER" AND THE POWER OF THE INTERNET. PLEASE Send This TO ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS. . It would be nice if congress got the message; the voting taxpayers are in charge now.

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.'
I thought if you abstained from sex and drugs, maybe that would help...........I know there are many who were caught off guard, and some other instances, where the person, was innocent. How did all this shit get started anyway?

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.

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.

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.
The hotels and restaurants, offer some of the finest packages at price's you can afford. Most all of your wedding can be planned through one complete hotel wedding package. They can set up your wedding rehearsal, make arrangements for your guests, and make your wedding the best it could ever be. Getting married by the ocean, on the beach is very romantic and then you have the secluded beach houses and villas all furnished with the quaint and beautiful romantic atmosphere. For more information, click on the link in this post and look around.
It is with profound sympathy, I offer my condolences to Patrick's family, friends and coworkers. May the Lord, give them peace and comfort, during this sad time.

There is a debate whether to allow treatment of this drug for terminally patients. California, allows it to be prescribed and has kiosks set up in certain areas for people to access it.

"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.

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.
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 -
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...
