just got this from a friend

This just in from a friend.

Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared "Social Security" to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.

Here's a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana ...
I think she is a little ticked off!
She also tells it like it is!
Oh sooo true!

"Hey Alan, let's get a few things straight!!!!!

1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for FIFTY YEARS.

2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).

3. My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud.

4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and "your ilk" pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age 67. NOW, you and your "shill commission" are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.

5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now "you morons" propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because "you idiots" mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.

6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you "incompetent bastards" spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.

To add insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for calling "bullshit" to your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU:

1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?

2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?

3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and health care benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?

It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the "greedy" ones. It is you and your fellow nutcase thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.

And for what? Votes and your job and retirement security at our expense, you lunk-headed, leech.

That's right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic, political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.

And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch.
NO, I did not stutter.

P.S. Stop calling Social Security benefits "entitlements". WHAT AN INSULT!!!!

I have been paying in to the SS system for 45 years “It's my money” - give it back to me the way the system was designed and stop patting yourself on the back like you are being generous by doling out these monthly checks.


If you agree with what a Montana citizen, Patty Myers, says, please PASS IT ON!!!!

Thanks Patty, What a meaningful, truthful, well written article.

how can you say with a straight face you are cutting my taxes when just with the expansion of sales tax items you cost the average Maine shopper $500 bucks a year? Man didn't you ever hear of pinochle?

Looks like that republican party is staying with the same o same o boys; we Mainers have had enough of that lying pack of tax robbers! they didn't get the message with poliquin! we will definitely send him packing! he thinks he is above the law! his home is in Georgetown and he is running in 2nd district! don't forget he stole tax money by claiming forestry abatement in a tree cutting zone! you can believe he is the dumbest fool walking and didn't know ;or he is just another cheap loud republican screwing his fellow taxpayers by not paying his share! either way this is why so many have left that party because of people like that who think they are above the law

voter restriction

The Brunswick times record had an editorial about voter restriction being done by the republican party and how successful they have been. Every democrat and independent should read this article and pass it on. It also tells how in every race they have taken the least votes of the two major parties. to me this is why they are the minority because they lately have been the party of deceit! How can you declare what a great patriot you are while trying to keep fellow Americans from voting so you can steal an election? just how un-american can they get and not be exposed? I think it's time to show them for what they have become,not what they once were!

the real republican for vets =cuts in benefits

Joe -

Mitch McConnell doesn't get it.

In the United States of America, the commitment to care for the men and women who put on our nation's uniform shouldn't stop once they return home from the wars they were sent to fight.

This isn't a new promise made to our troops -- some of our first colonial laws dealt with the care of wounded veterans.

That's why it was so jarring to watch Mitch McConnell lead his colleagues in the Senate during a filibuster of legislation to improve veterans health care and tuition benefits ... all over his desire to push our country to the brink of yet another war, this time with Iran.

Mitch McConnell has been on a desperate crusade to appeal to dissatisfied Tea Partiers in Washington D.C., but Kentuckians back home would be appalled by his actions.
McConnell's leadership against improving veterans benefits could end up being his kryptonite.

Kentucky has over 330,000 veterans who live in the state, tens of thousands of them who receive pension payments, tuition assistance, or health care.

McConnell's vote is a slap in the face to all of them.

Thanks for standing with us,

Jon Soltz
Iraq War Veteran and Chairman

crates and suitcases.

Description: Description:
On the second day, he had the movers come and collect his things.

Description: Description:
On the third day, he sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room
Table by candle-light, put on some soft background music, and feasted on a
Pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of spring-water.

Description: Description:
When he had finished, he went into each and every room and deposited a few
Half-eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar into the hollow of the curtain rods.

Description: Descriptionescription: Description:
He then cleaned up the kitchen and left.

When his ex returned with her new partner, all was bliss for the first few days.

Then slowly, the house began to smell.
They tried everything; cleaning, mopping and airing the place out.

Description: Description:
Vents were checked for dead rodents and carpets were steam cleaned.

Description: Description:
Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to set off
Gas canisters, during which they had to move out for a few days and in the end
They even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting. Nothing worked !!

Description: Description:
People stopped coming over to visit. Repairmen refused to work in the house.
The maid quit.

Description: Description:
Finally, they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move.
A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could not find
A buyer for their stinky house. Word got out and eventually even the local
Realtors refused to return their calls.

Description: Description:
Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase
A new place.

Description: Description:
The ex called and asked her how things were going.

Description: Description:
She told him the saga of the rotting house.
He listened politely and said that he missed his old home terribly and
Asked if they would be willing to reduce their divorce settlement in
Exchange for getting the house.

Description: Description:
Knowing he had no idea how bad the smell was, they agreed on a price that
Was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth, but only if he were to
Sign the papers that very day.

He agreed and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paperwork.

Description: Description:
A week later the ex and her partner stood smiling as they watched the moving

mal function junction

It seems that taking Maine workers hostage is getting to be the way of the right! Well I say that we all remember this when we cast our ballot and throw this sticky fingered group to the curb! It's time we brought this group to task! I'm sick of hearing these people who bitch about how the left spends and spends while they have family sucking us dry on welfare! It's fine for them to take advantage of these programs while spewing about others using the same program. Hell most of them either have gov. grants or loans for their business, kids in college with gov. loans or grants -you bet they know all the angles and use them! but they don't want you to!
So don't feel guilty to bring this up in conversation the next time you see them rant ! cuz they live in glass houses

I want to address those who think unions are bad

On the history channel they were talking about how much good the unions did for the coal miners.in the 30's and 40's even the early 50's unions were organizing to improve working conditions in the mines and other industrial companies. the safety hazards were many and if you got hurt you had no workman comp. Of course you know the owners of the mines supported the churches and the pastor preached about the evil union or he was replaced!
