Social Security could be in the red in two years

19 08 2009

In a interview with the Tuscaloosa News on Tuesday Aug 18th Congressman Spencer Bachus, from Alabama’s sixth district, a republican said that social security will show a deficit in two years.

Does any one find this surprising? With the Democrats trying to enslave us to the state (for our own good, mind you) and the Republicans in the pocket of those who seek profit at the expense of their own countrymen (NAFTA, GATT) the revinues of the government are drying up fast.

“What this recession has done to Social Security is pretty alarming,” he said. “We’ve known for 15 years that we were going to have to make adjustments to Social Security, but we still thought that was seven or eight years down the road.

Its nice to admit that you saw this problem coming and instead of fixing it like we pay you to do, you stuck your head in the sand because you were to lazy to work for the fat paycheck most of your constituents would kill for.

He continues

But if things don’t improve very quickly, we’re going to be dealing with that problem before we know it.”

Oh Really? Like you and the rest of Congress have spent TRILLIONS of Taxpayers hard earned dollars to save failing banks and needless stimulus?

As for the looming Social Security crisis, Bachus said solutions are beginning to be discussed.

“We could raise the retirement age, or in the worst case, cut back on some benefits,” he said. “But that is something we are just now beginning to get a handle on.”

The retirement has all ready been raised. Benefits being cut is governments response to the reality of its total incompetence in running anything.

Government was instituted to promote the general welfare, Not issue welfare checks.

The simple and logical solution to all this is,

First, Secure the boarders.

Remove Illegals and return them to their home countries, this will raise American wages and increase revenues into the government.

Withdraw from NAFTA and GATT to reestablish our sovereignty.

And get the government out of the welfare business, being compassionate has created a underclass of citizens who are permanently enslaved to the government.

Doing something

7 02 2009

The president keeps saying that we have to do something to help the economy, I can always do something Mr. President. Doing “something” is not always helpful.

If my kitchen is on fire, doing “something” could be throwing the gasoline from my garage on it. If I don’t have enough money to cover my bills this month, doing “something” could be taking what money I have and play it at the local casino. Both are cases of doing something but not the right thing. I’m not asking for you to do the most correct thing, although I would like that, I just don’t want you making things worse.

Let the people screwinise what you and congress do, we didn’t elect you to rule over us, we elected you to represent us. You work for us! We do get to grade your work on a daily basis. We will cheer when you do well and boo and hiss when you foul up.

We the people are your boss and we will keep you on however a short leash we think you deserve.

So quit whining about how long this bill is taking. I like what President Jefferson said about situations like this.

Delay is preferable to error.

Congressman fiddles while his electors burn with anger

4 07 2008

A few weeks ago I decided to tell my Congressman Charlie Wilson (no, not the one from the movie) of Ohio’s sixth district, that I was fed up with the price of gas. so I got on his website and left a very simple and direct message to him.

“Drill here, Drill now, or be Replaced”

I would think that I was in a chorus of voices telling Congressman Wilson that we need to increase supply to decrease prices.

Ohio’s 6th district is probably the most gerrymandered district in the nation. It starts on the south side of Youngstown, Ohio and goes south till it hits the Ohio river and then follows it for the next 100 miles, while its east-west depth is no more than 30 miles at any point. It is the text book definition of “rust belt”

Congressman Wilson’s campaign adds in 2006 made a point of him walking past closed businesses saying he would keep what jobs we have left here. The jobs are still leaving, and the surplus of labor is driving wages down while the cost of living goes up.

So, I get a reply from Congressman Wilson. in it he tries to change the subject from his responsibility to the voters to do as we say, to the evil oil company’s holding to much land in leases.

Since 2001, the price of a gallon of regular gasoline in Ohio has risen more than 130-percent. This is seriously squeezing working families, forcing small businesses to make painful decisions and hurting our economy. Bringing gas prices down will involve a series of steps, including the development of U.S. oil and gas resources on federal lands.

The first step is to focus on the millions of acres already leased for oil production that aren’t being used. Today, an estimated 68 million acres of onshore and offshore land leased by oil companies remain undeveloped.

Might that be because it can not be effectively developed?

According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), if the United States were to drill in the nearly 68 million acres of federal land currently available for lease to oil companies, the U.S. could produce an additional 4.8 million barrels of oil per day. That would nearly double total U.S. oil production and would be six times the estimated peak production from ANWR.

Again there might be that much oil there, but would it cost more per gallon to get it out?

Today, there are more than 91 million acres open to leasing in the Arctic region of Alaska, including onshore and offshore land. Of the available land, oil and gas companies have only leased 11.8 million acres. In addition, 80-percent of the oil available on the OCS is already open for leasing—but the oil companies haven’t committed the money to drill there. While I support the development of oil and gas resources on federal lands, I cannot support opening additional arctic land or more land on the OCS, until oil and gas companies begin to use the land already available to them.

Do you hear the sweet sound of a fiddle? I do.

I believe the government has worked hard to make the land available; now oil companies need to do their part. That’s why I have cosponsored HR 6251, the Responsible Federal Oil and Gas Lease Act. This important legislation would force oil and gas companies to either drill on or forfeit federal onshore and offshore leases.  Under this legislation, companies would be banned from obtaining any more leases unless they can demonstrate that they are producing oil and gas, or are diligently developing the leases they already hold.  Similar and effective rules already apply to coal companies.

You forgot to leave out the part where the federal rules are if a oil company does not develop a land by the end of ten years the lease expires. What, you thought we wouldn’t catch your disingenuous statements about how unfair the rules are towards the oil companys?

I know that out-of-control gasoline prices are a top concern of the residents of Ohio’s Sixth Congressional District. I promise I will continue to support legislation that will ease the burden that you and so many others are feeling because of gas prices.

Sincerely,

Charles A. Wilson
Member of Congress

Yes we are mad. we can not afford this and we see you dodging the issue. I am a voter hence I am your boss. Here is the legislation I want you to support.

Drill Here, Drill Now!

Or you will be replaced.

Most Ohioans have good sense when it comes to unfair imports

8 09 2007

From the Reviewonline

Most Ohio voters say they favor restrictions on imports, even if it means higher prices for consumer products, according to a poll released Wednesday.

Sure they would, since the job they would be saving is their own. Ohio has been devastated by cheap imports from countries that are exporting their unemployment to our shores.

‘‘The worker on the ground knows what’s going on,” said Peter Morici, a business professor at the University of Maryland and the former chief economist for the U.S. International Trade Commission. ‘‘The sentiment for more rational trade policy is higher in Indiana and Ohio where they are more impacted directly than in Manhattan where people are making money exporting American jobs.”

The business people in Manhattan are making money by turning our country into a crap hole, and as long as profits flow, they don’t care about the damage they are doing to their country.

People will point out how Wal-mart has helped lower income Americans. Fifteen years ago, wal-mart had low prices, while featuring American goods. They used to hang signs showing off how many American jobs they created. This was the time when Sam Walton died and the business shifted to the children who grew up with everything they needed, and they wanted more. They forced manufactures to lower prices and bought from the communist Chinese, something Sam never would have done. He was well known as an anti-communist. But pride in America meant nothing to his children, only the bottom line. So Wal-marts search for more money put Americans out of work and created a need for their low price goods. A vicious cycle they created indeed.

The problem with some of the people running as Republicans is that they are so up these businessmen’s butts that all they can talk about is “Free Trade.” Here let me fix that for you, “free profits for me and slavery for you peasants that buy my things trade.”

Let me make my case.

A spokesman for Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani said the former New York mayor would emphasize to Ohioans the benefits of free trade.

I hope he doesn’t come to my fair state to peddle that crap, because I’m not buying.

Making a profit is good, but at the price of enslaving your fellow citizens is something we as a nation can not put up with.
