Warren Buffett, “I could end the deficit in 5 minutes,” he told CNBC. “You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971…before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc. Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land…all because of public pressure.
This is one idea that really should be passed around.
1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.
2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term’s), then go home and back to work.
If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive the message. Maybe it is time.
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!! If you agree with the above, pass it on.
Is MORE spending and MORE government ever ENOUGH?
How about too much?
And if there can be too much spending, where is that point?
And if there can’t be too much, will the government ever stay out of anything?
Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding U.S. History as any of the other 42 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House.
The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence , Missouri . His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and, other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there.
When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an “allowance” and, later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year.
After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them.
When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, “You don’t want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn’t belong to me. It belongs to the American people and it’s not for sale.”
Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, “I don’t consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise.”
As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food.
Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices.
Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, “My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference!”
I say dig him up and clone him!
History Is Repeating Itself
1994 Bill Clinton – 2015 Barack Obama
Dear Friends, twenty-two years ago US President Bill Clinton brokered a deal with North Korea to reign in its nuclear program. Clinton stated confidently that this agreement would end the threat of nuclear proliferation in the Korean Peninsula and was “good for the safety of the entire world.” Since the agreement was reached, North Korea has not only obtained the ability to produce nuclear weapons, but just recently launched a long-range rocket into space, which is widely being viewed as a veiled nuclear missile test.
Today, history seems to be repeating itself. Only a few months after US President Barack Obama brokered a Nuclear Agreement with Iran, warmly welcoming the Islamic Republic back into the community of nations, Iran has only escalated its provocations and rhetoric. In the build up to and following the Nuclear Agreement, Iran has tested missiles specifically designed to carry a nuclear payload, kidnapped US sailors, financed the speedy construction of Hamas terror tunnels and is likely on track to become the latest nuclear-armed terror state.
It’s time to learn from history. We cannot capitulate to terror, but must fight it using all means available to us within the law.
Fighting Terrorism – Doing Justice.
By: Truth and Action
Veterans are being arrested by the Secret Service for making anti-Obama Facebook posts, sometimes the very next day after creating a post – a practice which has been going on for quite some time.
All the while, our police force is being militarized at an alarming rate, with veterans being cited as one reason why. This is revealed in a statement made last month by Sgt. Dan Downing of the Morgan County, Ind. Sheriff’s Department, he stated “The weaponry is totally different now that it was in the beginning of my career, plus, you have a lot of people who are coming out of the military that have the ability and knowledge to build IEDs and to defeat law enforcement techniques.”
DHS has specific programs to silence veterans, such as Operation Vigilant Eagle, which was started in 2009. See more on this program below.
We’ve seen the Washington Times report on a memo detailing Obama’s plan to use the military against citizens. Of course strategically it makes sense that in any such war, the first targets would be those who can defeat local law enforcement, organize others into field-ready teams, and train the other patriots in the finer points of combat: our veterans.
In the four years since the start of Operation Vigilant Eagle, the government has steadily ramped up its campaign to “silence” dissidents, especially those with military backgrounds. Coupled with the DHS’ dual reports on Right-wing and Left-wing “Extremism,” which broadly define extremists as individuals and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely,” these tactics have boded ill for anyone seen as opposing the government.
One particularly troubling mental health label being applied to veterans and others who challenge the status quo is “oppositional defiance disorder” (ODD). As journalist Anthony Martin explains, an ODD diagnosis
“denotes that the person exhibits ‘symptoms’ such as the questioning of authority, the refusal to follow directions, stubbornness, the unwillingness to go along with the crowd, and the practice of disobeying or ignoring orders. Persons may also receive such a label if they are considered free thinkers, nonconformists, or individuals who are suspicious of large, centralized government… At one time the accepted protocol among mental health professionals was to reserve the diagnosis of oppositional defiance disorder for children or adolescents who exhibited uncontrollable defiance toward their parents and teachers.”
The case of 26-year-old decorated Marine Brandon Raub—who was targeted because of his Facebook posts, interrogated by government agents about his views on government corruption, arrested with no warning, labeled mentally ill for subscribing to so-called “conspiratorial” views about the government, detained against his will in a psych ward for standing by his views, and isolated from his family, friends and attorneys—is a prime example of the government’s war on veterans.
Raub’s case exposes the seedy underbelly of a governmental system that is targeting Americans—especially military veterans—for expressing their discontent over America’s rapid transition to a police state.
Obama Strips Requirement: Immigrants No Longer Have To Pledge To Defend The USA For Citizenship
The Obama administration has decided to remove the lines from the oath to become an American citizen requiring new citizens to bear arms on behalf of the United States or perform noncombatant duties in the armed forces in times of war. Newly naturalized Americans will no longer have to pledge to defend the USA if they choose to opt out.
As luck would have it, Johnny had something to say to people that want to protest by burning the American Flag… “We’ve also got a right to bear arms and if you burn my flag, I’ll shoot ya.”
Oh yeah, this is classic Johnny!
The video is below and it might be a little grainy, but it is sure worth the five minutes to give it a look…
Don’t say he didn’t warn you…
Netanyahu’s Warning Message to Americans That Obama Has Been Completely Ignoring | JewTube.tv
36-year Navy veteran, retired Admiral James Lyons, Jr. the former Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, and a former senior U.S. military representative to the United Nations was recognized and honored with the 2015 Freedom Shield Award at the “Keeper of the Flame” event at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Postal Museum.
While making his acceptance speech the Admiral blasted Congress for not stopping Obama’s fundamental transformation of America and stated that the greatest national security threat to the United States resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, The White House.
