“Elected Leaders” Take Actions On Hard-Earned Money

If there are but three constants in the world today one can always count on the following three things to always be there ringing their bells loudly:

1.  Death

2.  Taxes

3.  The New York Times waging a complete and all-out war on the working and middle classes of America and the Times editorial page always being on the wrong side of history.

 

 

What is really sad is that in the New York Times every day far from its incredibly Wacko Liberal editorial page are “news” stories that always following the line of trying to get more of hard-earned money from the American People because they believe that governments can spend OUR money better than We the People can.  No surprise here really though, because liberal elites that dominate the news in America today and have often never done an honest day’s work in their lives really believe they are smarter than YOU and since they sat through a few dozen classes at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, etc., that they should be able to tell the rest of us Americans how to live our lives.

Sorry, the American People are not stupid and We the People do work in Real Jobs making real products and providing real services every day and We work very hard for OUR money and taxes in America on all levels are already way to high and it is past time for the American People to take back OUR Government from these Ivy League Elitists and guess what you bastards:

 

That is what We the People are about to do.

There is no better example of this attitude of the New York Times and other Elitists in America than this Outrageous headline in the Times:

California’s Tax Aversion Complicates Budget Math 

What the Hell?  Newsflash to the Ivy League Elitists at the New York Times that have never done an honest day’s work in their lives and would not last 5 seconds in the US military:

Californians have to deal with some of the Highest Taxes in the country with the Highest Sales Tax, the Highest Gas Tax, One of the Highest Income Taxes and an Incredibly High Property Tax compared to the rest of the country if one’s home was purchased in the last decade.  Far from California having an “Aversion” to taxes California rightfully understand that they are Very Highly Taxed RIGHT NOW and that these Bastards in Sacramento don’t need more money because any more money they get from us will only be funneled to Government Workers that are already making Obscene amounts of money that are, of course, all paid for out of the pockets of the People.

The New York Times does identify in their incredibly biased news story (towards the Wacko Liberal side that can never have too much of the People’s money…..After all, we earned OUR money right?  Right!) what the “temporary” taxes that Jerry Brown and the Democrats want to continue to impose on the People of California will REALLY go for though.  Check out this paragraph from the news the Times incredibly biased news story:

“Even with the cloud of uncertainty in Sacramento, Mr. Brown’s aides and Democratic leaders have quietly begun laying the groundwork for a campaign on behalf of the tax extensions that is expected to cost $40 million to $60 million, a huge amount of money reflecting the cost of statewide television advertising here. Much of that money would come from state labor unions. Labor groups are already running polls and conducting focus groups that have, officials, said, found great but not insurmountable resistance to tax increases.”

Let’s repeat the KEY line in the above paragraph:

“Much of the money would come from state labor unions.”

Oh, what a surprise!  No, not really, because when one gets right down to the bottom of ALL of this Outrageous and Over-the-Top Government spending especially with state governments today in America it is the Public Labor Unions that are driving the deficit spending and they are driving it forward by BUYING-OFF politicians with campaign contributions and then those very same politicians turn around and give OBSCENE and OUTRAGEOUS salaries to Government Workers that are often making 2, 3, 4 times what they could make in the Real World.

Oh, you don’t believe that Government Workers aren’t making OBSCENE and OUTRAGEOUS amounts of money on the backs of the taxpayers?  Please, we invite you to join the rest of us in the Real World and to face the FACTS and REALITY of what is really going on in America today.

What is really going on in America today is that very powerful special interests like the Public Labor Unions, the Wall Street Bastards and Corporate America all believe that the American People are some kind of Bottomless Piggy Bank that they can access via BUYING-OFF our “Elected Leaders.”  Yes, that is what is going on in America right now, but that will not always be in the case because there is some very good case law being built right now across the United States that will allow the American People to toss some of OUR “Elected Leaders” into jail for crimes they have committed against the country by BUYING-OFF people in OUR Government to get them to do something that is clearly against US law.  That is called BRIBERY for the Idiots, Buffoons and Morons that somehow believe that handing over Hundreds of Thousands of Millions of Dollars to OUR “Elected Leaders” is anything but BRIBERY and in the coming years the American People are going to look very closely at EVERY DIME donated to EVERY politician in this country and if there is a connection between $$$$$$$ and action then get ready to have your asses tossed into prison.

Getting back to the OBSCENE and OUTRAGEOUS salaries and benefits that are now being paid to Government Workers in the State of California it looks like that We the People are going to have take on the Public Labor Unions and their members head-on because if they are going to spend 40 to 60 Million Dollars to try and get more money from the People of California so their members can sit around on their asses for 30 plus years in retirement hauling down $100K Plus in annual pensions then that effort Must Be Stopped by the Republicans in the California Legislature or then by People of California voting down an extension of these Outrageous “temporary” taxes.

 

 

For the Public Union Bosses and Democrats in Sacramento to understand what you are going to have battle against in the coming months the People of California are going to use FACTS to tell everyone in the state just how much money that Government Workers are hauling down in salaries and pensions and when that is known widely if the Public Employee Unions and Democrats thought getting these “temporary” taxes passed was going to be tough, you are going to find that getting ANY MORE money to pay OBSCENE AND OUTRAGEOUS Government salaries is going to be..

IMPOSSIBLE!

The Government Workers Protesting in Wisconsin

There has been a lot written and said about the battle in Wisconsin and other Midwestern states between the new Republican governors and the public employee unions in recent days but there have been precious few people talking about the essential issues that are now in play which will have a big say in the future of OUR country which revolves around the central premise that there have been promises made by our “bought-off” Elected Leaders that cannot be met by the American People under ANY circumstances.

 

First, we must say that we here at Mad As Hell And…. are not against people organizing themselves into unions if they willingly choose to do so (forcing someone to join a union is not only wrong it is un-American and any state that forces people to join unions only hurt their own citizens) and it has always been our opinion that any company in the private sector that does not take good care of and recognize the importance of their employees will probably end up with the formation of a union in its, workplace and rightfully so.

For the members of Mad As Hell And…. that run their own companies we believe in the words of the Great Henry Ford:

“There is one rule for the industrialist and that is: Make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible.”  Henry Ford

We would also add to Henry Ford’s words that paying one’s employees the “highest wage possible” also the importance of providing a solid health insurance plan for the employee and his/her family and offering the opportunity for employees to save for their/their families future and retirement with the employer maximizing contributions to employees retirement program.

Those are the principles that we live by when it comes to hiring and retaining employees and it has been our experience that if an employer places the proper high value on the employees that make the products and provide the services of the company then there will be little interest by the employees in forming a union.  With all of that being said it is our opinion that in the past two decades that public employee unions have grown to be out-of-control in the United States of America and their influence over some of OUR “Elected Leaders” is threatening the future of the American Republic.

Just like the Wall Street Bastards and Corporate America Welfare Queens that spend Billions of Dollars every year buying off OUR “Elected Leaders” in order to get tax breaks and favorable treatment, the public employee unions also spent Hundreds of Millions of Dollars of their union members’ money to buy off politicians on all levels of government and that has led to those “bought-off” officials making promises on wages, benefits, and pensions that cannot be met by the American People.

We here at Mad As Hell And… do not object to government employees being paid a wage and benefits that are in-line with what people in the private sector are being paid, but it is wrong and outrageous for government employees to be treated as if they are BETTER than American citizens and that they should somehow be exempt from the economic forces that shape our country or that they should be guaranteed retirement income that far outstrips what the people that are paying their salaries have in their own lives.

Sorry, government employees WORK FOR THE PEOPLE whether they are elected, appointed or hired by the government and that means that government employees MUST ANSWER to the Will of the People and the American People are saying in a very clear and very loud voice that the promises that have been made to government employees over the past two decades by politicians that have been “Bought-Off” with campaign donations CANNOT BE MET and WILL NOT Be spent.

Just like there is no chance in Hell that all of the promises that have been made by OUR “Elected Officials” on Social Security and Medicare can be paid for without massive tax increases on the American People there is no way that the increasing wages and benefits and especially all of the pension obligations to public employees in America can be met either.  We don’t give a Damn if there have been “contracts” negotiated with government employees  by the politicians that they “bought-off” promising these future benefits because the FACTS are that there is No Way in Hell that the American People are going to stand for 50 Plus percent of their hard-earned money going to retired government employees to sit on their asses for 30 plus years in retirement while they are working their asses off in the Real World without a guaranteed pension and if there is someone in the Democratic party or at the public employee unions that would like to challenge the American People on that point, by all means, give it a try!

To that point, it has become increasingly clear to us here at Mad As Hell And… that the American People need to be educated and told about on the amount of money that government employees are now making on all levels of government and the very lucrative pensions that many are now pulling down in retirement and that are promised to current government workers in the future.  (To see the disaster that is now unfolding on government employee pensions in the state of California that is already eating up Billions of Dollars that should be going to schools and other essential gov’t services check out the

(To see the disaster that is now unfolding on government employee pensions in the state of California that is already eating up Billions of Dollars that should be going to schools and other essential gov’t services check out the California Foundation for Fiscal Responsibility website which details the thousands of public employees that are hauling down $100K plus a year in retirement!)  It is our opinion that just like most Americans do not understand that most of the largest corporations in America spend Billions of Dollars buying-off OUR “Elected Leaders” for perks and benefits that they also do not realized that public employee unions also spend small fortunes to elect people that they know will sign-off on whatever BS the union leaders will come up with.  That set of FACTS have convinced us beyond a doubt that in the coming 2012 political cycle that the American People will need to be told the truth about how well government employees are living while both working and in retirement and that there are very effective, informative and entertaining ways we can do just that.

 

 

We just remind the folks at the Democratic Party, the public employee unions and in the Obama 2012 campaign team that the Buffoons, Hacks, Idiots and Fools that the Democratic Party has faced since the 1992 election are no longer the only people on the playing field and that the younger generation of the 1980 and 1984 election cycles have reluctantly decided to take some time for their very busy working and family lives to help take back the Republican Party from the Wall Street Bastards and Corporate SOBs and then to defeat the Democratic Party in the 2012 election.

No, it will not be easy to wrench the Republican Party back from the Buffoons, Hacks, Idiots and Fools that have destroyed it over the past two decades but that is something that must be done because it makes little sense to have two political parties that are both bound and determined to destroy the American People with out-of-control spending thus it is our opinion that our jobs and families can see a little less of us over the next few years (and some of our wives might even welcome us being out of the house more!) just like they saw less of us in the run-up to the 2010 election.

The 2010 election seemed to work out pretty well for Republicans with the help of lots of Republicans that were determined to see a change in America, some we agree with on issues and some we don’t, and certainly, we will continue to work hard as the 2012 election gets closer.  As for the Democrats and those Obama campaign folks in the White House and that are now working in Chicago.  Don’t worry, we don’t know what we are doing……right?

Is There A Deal That Could Be Had In Sacramento Between Jerry Brown and the Republicans?

As the California budget debate drags on in Sacramento in the spirit of Ronald Reagan, which a few of us here at Mad As Hell And… left college to work for in his run for the Presidency in 1980, maybe it is time for the Wacko Liberals and the Republicans to cut a deal, but a deal that does not stick it to the People of California in what is still the worst recession in California since World War II.

 

 

It’s time to end the budget nonsense in Sacramento so the state of California can focus on getting back to work because Jerry Brown and the Republicans continuing to argue about what in the end could be small amounts of money needs to be brought to an end.

Michael Gardiner of the San Diego Union-Tribune put out a news story a couple of weeks ago for HealtyCal.org that breaks down the taxes that Jerry Brown is trying to extend for 5 more years and here are those taxes and how much they would raise from the People of California:

How the tax package affects you

“Which taxes are at stake?

Sales tax: The state share was increased 1 percent, to 6 percent. It would raise $4.5 billion in 2011-12.

Income tax: There is a 0.25 surcharge. It would raise $2.07 billion in 2011-12.

Vehicle license fees: An increase of 0.65 percent to a 1.15 percent rate based on vehicle value. It would raise $1.38 billion in 2011-12.

Dependent exemption: A $99 credit, down from the $309 allowed two years ago. It would raise $1.25 billion in 2011-12.”

Now that you know what temporary taxes that Jerry Brown and the Democrats would like to extend for 5  more years (which is outrageous on its face) the next important number to know is what is the REAL budget deficit that the state is now facing after the Democrats cut about $5 Billion Dollars in state spending last week (No, the Democrats did not cut $14 Billion Dollars, but really only about $5 Billion Dollars after removing the fund transfers and other Bogus cuts).

Those $5 Billion Dollars in cuts by the Democrats leaves about $7 to $8 Billion Dollars left that needs to be cut from California government spending for the 2011 fiscal year which runs from July 1, 2010, to June 30, 2011.

Looking over the above taxes that Jerry Brown would like to extend for 5 years and keeping in mind the things that Brown has already agreed to with the Republicans to reform pensions and a few other items we could see the outline of a deal being something like this:

Jerry Brown and the Democrats

1.  Cut $4.5 Billion more Dollars from the 2011 fiscal year budget

2.  Follow through on the already agreed to pension reform changes

3.  Install a strict spending cap with 2011 fiscal year as baseline with spending growing no faster than inflation and population growth

Republicans

1.  Agree to one-year extension of sales taxes, $4.5 Billion Dollars

2.  Income taxes, vehicle license fees, dependent exemptions all expire and revert back to old tax rates/numbers

3.  That would roughly be $4.5 Billion Dollars by both sides after the already agreed to cuts that Jerry Brown had already earmarked for this 2011 fiscal year budget.

4.  Hard Spending Cap:  The above would set the baseline General Fund budget for the state of California around $80 Billion Dollars and a Total State Funds budget of around $122 Billion Dollars for the fiscal year 2011 which in future years could go up no faster than inflation and population growth.  The great thing about a hard spending cap is that it would send a very strong signal to business both in the state and ones that were thinking about relocating to California that the government was committed to controlling government spending into the future.

If the Democrats are not willing to make the above deal then let them get the signatures to put the tax extensions on the ballot for a November vote and let the public sector unions spend tens of Millions of Dollars of their union members money and the People of California will vote the tax extensions down.  (That will just be tens of Millions of Dollars of money that will not be spent by public sector unions in the 2012 election).  That would mean the Democrats in Sacramento would have to cut the entire $8 Billion Plus Dollars to balance the budget and if they want to take a chance with a vote then we say have at it!

Yes, some Republicans will howl about the Republicans caving in to Jerry Brown and the Democrats but in exchange for 1 year of $4.5 Billion Dollars in taxes, it would be well worth it to get some pension reform and a hard spending cap tied to inflation and population growth.

Would Jerry Brown and the Democrats take such a deal if offered by the Republicans?

 

 

Well, we would bet that Jerry Brown would take the above deal because he knows what a dire situation is in going forward in the coming years as more state workers begin to retire, but the Democrats in the California legislature would have to be dragged to such a deal because they are owned LOCK, STOCK AND BARREL by the public sector unions and the unions would take down the state of California and destroy its People before they would give up the right of their union members to sit around on their asses for 30+ years in retirement collecting $70K plus annual pensions.

Yes, there is a deal to be had in Sacramento but the deal that would actually benefit the People of California is one that mostly likely cannot be done without strong leadership from Jerry Brown.

Former US Senator Judd Gregg Calls Out For Leadership From President Obama

On Monday former New Hampshire and Republican Senator Judd Gregg asked for in an Op-Ed column in The Hill newspaper…

 

 

Step up, take charge and lead the nation, Mr. President

“Hope” is a great word, as is “liberty.” And “change” is nice. I have always been partial to “opportunity.”

They have all been words liberally applied in recent years by those running for office, many of whom have won. We now have a federal government that is dominated by elected people who have promised Hope, Liberty, Change and Opportunity. Where are we? We wait.

We confront the world where our role is in transition. Our policies in Afghanistan are struggling. The Middle East is in chaos and the cost of oil is threatening to stagger our economy. Our domestic energy policy is essentially non-existent, as is our immigration policy.

We have no good answer for Iran, Pakistan or North Korea, which represent legitimate threats in that they could be sources of weapons of mass destruction that may come under the control of Islamic fundamentalist terrorists.

Our military is being asked to be nation builders. This is not a proper use of their expertise or people.

Our economy continues to struggle. This is due to many factors, but certainly, a large part of the problem is the explosion in the size of the federal government. It has grown from 20 percent of GDP on average since the end of World War II to now absorbing 24 percent and going up.

This, coupled with an explosion of regulatory excess that makes France seem almost laissez-faire, has made the risk of taking risks and investing in new ventures that create jobs problematic.

Agencies like the FDA, EPA and the Labor Department have declared their own jihad against American entrepreneurs, resulting in a deflating of the forces that might give our economy some lift.

All of this is overlaid by a nation on a borrowing binge. Like a gambler who cannot stop placing bets, we continue to run up the debt — only in this case the house is made up of our international competitors, especially China.”

Very well written Senator Gregg but evidently, you didn’t get the memo.

What memo is that you ask?

 

 

That would be the memo that all of the problems facing the United States are just one big game that involves political consultants and various other hacks trying out themes, phrases, and words in order to try and get a leg up on the other political party so they can win the next election.

No, Senator Gregg, there really aren’t many people in Washington DC that give two rips about you, us, our children and grandchildren or the American People.  This is all about gaining and holding power and if these Morons that view Washington DC as some kind of game really knew of the very dangerous game they are playing that could put not only the future of the American People at risk but the fate of the world itself, we are not even sure if these Bastards would care one bit.

You see Judd, this is all just a fantasyland to the Democrats and the Republicans with the American People ALWAYS getting the shaft as the politicians that were elected to work for and serve the public play their games and put the very future of the American Republic at risk.

 

You see Judd, it’s just one Big Game.  Oh, but certainly you already know that this is all just one big game to these folks in Washington DC in both political parties because you spent almost 30 years of your life working with these Bastards.  Hell, you were right there in the US Senate when that Sorry Excuse for a Republican W. Bush and the Congress did this to the American People:

 

 

What the Hell was that Judd and why the Hell didn’t you tell W. Bush and your colleagues in the US Senate to step up and lead?  Now that’s a Damn good question!

Yes, President Obama needs to step up to lead and take on the very difficult problems facing the American Republic, but….and let’s be honest here….Obama’s political advisors would exchange right now re-electing President Obama while papering over the big problems facing the country even if they knew that American would implode in 2020.  Yes, Obama’s political advisors would swap their own children’s future for getting President Obama re-elected.  The same goes for the Republican political consultants as well.

This reality is the central fact about Washington DC that ALL Americans need to understand completely:

90 plus percent of the politicians in Washington DC would trade winning the next election and thus staying in “the game” even if they go re-elected by ignoring and papering over even very big problems that they knew would destroy the lives of our children and grandchildren (and even their own children and grandchildren’s lives!).  That is how addicted these folks are to holding power and the perks that come with having their asses kissed by lackeys that need to get a life and we know this to be a FACT because we have worked with and for these Bastards in our nation’s capital.

Just take a look at the incredibly absurd and complete lie being told by the Majority Leader of the US Senator Harry Reid (from The Hill):

 

 

Reid accuses GOP of threatening Social Security in funding fight

“Reid said he is irritated by pundits and politicians who accept the GOP argument that Social Security is headed for bankruptcy.

“It’s not just an exaggeration that Social Security is headed for bankruptcy, it’s an outright lie,” Reid said.

Reid and other Democrats at Monday’s event note that Social Security has a $2.6 trillion surplus and is projected to pay out 100 percent of benefits until 2037. After that point it is projected to pay out about 80 percent of owed benefits unless changes are made to the program.”

Very simply, Harry Reid is LYING to the American People and it is our opinion he knows his is LYING about Social Security because anyone with a working brain in the US Senate knows there is NOT ONE DIME in the Social Security “Trust” Fund.

Harry Reid and other politicians in Washington DC have spent EVERY DIME of the annual Social Security surpluses that came into the US Government over the past 25 plus years and there is NO MONEY in the Social Security “Trust” Fund and Harry Reid knows that to be a fact but here we have Harry Reid flat-out LYING to the American People about that FACT.

Below is the filing cabinet that Harry Reid claims is holding the $2.6 Trillion Dollar Social Security “Surplus” which is in a US government office in Parkersburg, West Virginia:

 

 

Yes, it does take an extraordinary good liar to claim there is $2.6 Trillion Dollars in the above filing cabinet!  Sorry Harry, there are only I.O.U.s in that filing cabinet..but you know that and LIE about that FACT to the American People.

No, it does not surprise us that Harry Reid would LIE about the Social Security “Trust” Fund because it is our opinion that if Harry Reid knew for a fact that the American Republic would be destroyed in 2020 if he could paper over the critical problems facing our country right now Harry Reid would take destruction of America over losing a political advantage or an election.

That is how sick these people are and as Mark McKinnon points out The Daily Beast….

Three Truths about Social Security

“1. Life expectancy has increased 15 years, but the retirement age has changed little.

When the “Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance” program was enacted in 1935, average life expectancy in America was 60 years for men, and 64 for women, with the retirement age 65. Today life expectancy is 75.7 years for men, and 80.6 years for women. But the retirement age is now just 66 or 67, depending on your year of birth. We are living much longer after retirement than the program was designed for. Good for us, but a strain on the system.

2. Those hard-earned dollars you pay into Social Security today are paid out to somebody else tomorrow.

There is no lock box. Social Security is a pay-as-you-go system: Money in, money out. It’s a pipeline with “money from current contributors coming in the front end and money to current beneficiaries paid out the back end.” This transfer of income, from one generation of workers to another, works only when there are more at the front end than the back. But there is a boom in boomers retiring and a decrease in the number of children—future workers to pay into the system—being born. Today, 100 workers support 32 beneficiaries. In 20 years, 100 workers will need to support 46 beneficiaries. There are more of us nearing retirement age, but we are not procreating enough.

3. Social Security is short of cash.

Since 1935, the cost of benefits has been entirely covered by payroll taxes from current workers. In 2010, nearly 60 million people drew Social Security benefits. But in less than 25 years, that number will grow to 88 million, with benefit payouts doubling to over $1.4 trillion. Yet fewer people will be paying into the pipeline. We don’t need to wait 20 or 25 years to see that Social Security is nearing insolvency: The Congressional Budget Office projects payroll tax revenue will fall $45 billion short of benefits owed this year, not including the interest owed by the government to the Social Security trust fund. (Excess Social Security tax revenue in previous years was exchanged for Treasury bonds—federal government debt—on which the government now owes interest.) Although the system is expected to return to balance temporarily in 2012, it will begin running deficits again in 2015 if interest from the trust fund is excluded and in 2025 including interest payments. After that point, the trust fund will be fully exhausted in 2037. We are running out of time and money.”

 

Oh, you don’t believe that?  Believe it.  Most of these political hacks that are supposed to be representing the American People don’t give two rips about you, your family, often even their own family or anything beyond winning the next election.

Now, that’s the TRUTH and Harry Reid’s actions and the actions of most of these “Elected Leaders” in both political parties in Washington DC prove that TRUTH many times over every day of the week.

 

 

Here’s something that should give these political hacks pause:  If you Bastards destroy the American Republic with your out-of-control spending, irresponsible governing and outright lies the power in the world will shift to “other” countries that have a lot different outlook on the world than the Principles found within the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution and in the heart and souls of most Americans.

Yes, these Idiots in Washington are playing a very dangerous game and if this Bullshit continues when they wake-up from their Stupid political games they and We the American People are going to look around and find a much weakened America and a much more dangerous world.

Bring Back the Al Gore “Lockbox?”

In the Fantasyland that is Washington DC there is always an intense search going on by politicians, pollsters and others that make fortunes sucking off the US taxpayer to come up with “works and talking points” that will divert the American People away from the robbery that is happening out back while the politicians do their best to distract all of us from looking up front!   “Hey, look here and not out back where the money is being carted off by the people that have BOUGHT us off!”

 

 

These Bastards in Washington have played so many games over the past few decades with the US Government’s books that even an army of accountants would never be able to figure out where the money is coming and going or if the folks at the Pentagon know what day of the week it is forgotten about how many contractors they are now paying (No, the Defense Department can’t be bothered with keeping track where OUR hard-earned money is going which is beyond OUTRAGEOUS and may just be criminal in the coming years.  Yes, these Buffoons at the Pentagon do not know how many contractors they have!  Incredible!).

The latest recycling of old BS is an attempt to revive a term used by one of the lead distracters from the Truth on the American political scene in recent decades and that would be Al Gore and the old term would be “lockbox” which Al used in the 2000 election against “W.”

 

 

Those of us old enough to remember the 2000 election remember very well the Pompous Arrogant Ass Al Gore looking over at the Pompous Arrogant Ass George W. Bush (Neither man to this day has done an honest day’s work in their lives and both would be lucky to be working the swing shift at the local 7-Eleven if they weren’t part of the lucky sperm club of Bushes and Gores!) and saying in his very fake Southern accent that we should put the Social Security surpluses in a “lockbox” so they could not be raised and spent by the Bastards in Washington DC.  That the Bastards in Washington DC spent every Dime of the annual Social Security surpluses and placed worthless I.O.U.’s in the Social Security “Trust” Fund is, of course, the TRUTH and just think the Great Al Gore was going to put a stop to all of that would his “LOCKBOX!”  Oh, that’s a good joke!

Saturday Night Live did a great skit of the debate between the two men that have never done an honest day’s work in their lives, Al Gore and George W. Bush, from the 2000 election.  Yes, this is very entertaining and it contains Al Gore’s “LOCKBOX!”

Now that is funny!

Now back to the Bastards in Washington DC that are constantly trying to come up with “words and talking points” that will distract the American People so they will look one way while all kind of nonsense and often illegal behavior is going on in the other direction.
