How to fix Congress

*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, before e-mail, before

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.*

*I’m asking each addressee to forward this email to a

minimum of twenty people on their address list;  in

turn ask each of those to do likewise.

In three days, most people in The United States of

America will have the message.  This is one idea that

really should be passed around.

Congressional Reform Act of  2011

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 effective1/1/12. ****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. 

THANKS AUSTRALIA , THIS IS AWESOME

Written by an Australian Dentist 

To Kill an American
You probably missed this in the rush of news, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper, an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American. 

So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone know what an American is.  So they would know when they found one.  (Good one, mate!!!!)

‘An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek.  An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, Arab,  Pakistani or Afghan.

An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as native Americans..

An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim.  In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan ..  The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses.

An American is also free to believe in no religion.. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

An American lives in the most prosperous
Land in the history of the world..
The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence , which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.

An American is generous.. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return.

When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country!

As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan ..
The national symbol of America , The Statue of Liberty , welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed.  These in fact are the people who built America  

Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11, 2001, earning a better life for their families.  It’s been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.
So you can try to kill an American if you must.  Hitler did.  So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world.. But, in doing so, you would just be killing yourself.  Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place.  They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom.  Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

Please keep this going!
Pass this around the World
.
Then pass it around again. It says it all, for all of us.

It’s going to get harder to get a passport

Did you know this?

http://www.consumertraveler.com/today/state-dept-wants-to-make-it-harder-to-get-a-passport/

Learning about this information I remember the following event I had.

Back in 1975 I crossed the Iron Curtain between Hungary and Vienna. This was a very chilling situation. When we got thirty miles away from the border the tour guide was getting off the tour bus. She was asked why and she “replied that she was not allowed to go any closer to the border. ” The border was very chilling. We sat in the tour bus for 45 minutes while the border guards gathered all our passports and took them into the office to check them out and make sure no one was attempting to sneak out.

The border was defoliated for 200 yards and had high machine gun towers  in the center. This was a site you don’t forget.

This kind of passport questionnaire makes me very uncomfortable. In my opinion, I am getting the feeling the United States is leaning towards a strict police state just like the former Soviet Union, and the Communists did not have to fire a shot.

In ten or fifteen years will more people be trying to get out of the country than trying to get in? This is a chilling thought.

Federal Reserve Logic

I have a book. Book sales are really bad. Therefore, I borrow lots of money and buy lots of books. Now, book sales really look great. WOW! I betcha, I could get a job at The Federal Reserve and sell government bonds. Now let’s see, how am I going to pay back the money I borrowed and I still have lots of books? Oh well, it’s only 600 billion.

Time to take a stand

If the gays can come out of the closet now it is time for me to come out of my closet. I am an angry voter who is coming out of the closet and I am ready to face threats, ridicule and loss of friends or family. Come November 2nd I will be voting for Buck, not Bennett. Fallon has my vote instead of DeGette. Tancredo wins my vote instead of Hickenlooper. I am tired of the career politicians bankrupting and destroying this fine country. ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and MSNBC have failed in keeping politicians in line by not reporting the news. I watch FOX News, Bill O’Reilly, Glen Beck, and I like Sarah Palin. “In God We Trust” belongs on our money and government buildings. However, we need to follow it not just say it. Contrary to what some think government will never take the place of God. I am tired of this nanny government. I don’t want the government telling me I can’t eat a Big Mac. I am proud to be an American and no apology is warranted for any country. If you think I am angry, you are right but I will enjoy my freedom of speech until you peel my American made Smith & Wesson 357 Magnum from my cold stiff hands.

The axis of idiots

USMC Sgt. Major has his Stuff together.

Jimmy Carter, you are the father of the Islamic Nazi movement. You threw the Shah under the bus, welcomed the Ayatollah home, and then lacked the spine to confront the terrorists when they took our embassy and our people hostage. You’re the “runner-in-chief.”

Bill Clinton, you played ring around the Lewinsky while the terrorists were at war with us. You got us into a fight with them in Somalia and then you ran from it. Your weak-willed responses to the USS Cole and the First Trade Center Bombing and Our Embassy Bombings emboldened the killers. Each time you failed to respond adequately, they grew bolder, until 9/11/2001.

John Kerry, dishonesty is your most prominent attribute. You lied about American Soldiers in Vietnam . Your military service, like your life, is more
fiction than fact. You’ve accused our military of terrorizing women and children in Iraq . You called Iraq the wrong war, wrong place, wrong time, and the same words you used to describe Vietnam . You’re a fake! You want to run from Iraq and abandon the Iraqis to murderers just as you did to the Vietnamese. Iraq , like Vietnam , is another war that you were for, before you were against it.

John Murtha, you said our military was broken. You said we can’t win militarily in Iraq . You accused United States Marines of cold-blooded murder without proof and said we should redeploy to Okinawa . Okinawa, John? And the Democrats call you their military expert! Are you sure you didn’t suffer a traumatic brain injury while you were off building your war hero resume? You’re a sad, pitiable, corrupt, and washed up old fool. You’re not a Marine, sir. You wouldn’t amount to a good pimple on a real Marine’s ass. You’re a phony and a disgrace. Run away, John.

Dick Durbin, you accused our Soldiers at Guantanamo of being Nazis, tenders of Soviet style gulags and as bad as the regime of Pol Pot, who murdered two million of his own people after your party abandoned Southeast Asia to the Communists. Now you want to abandon the Iraqis to the same fate. History was not a good teacher for you, was it? Lord help us! See Dick run.

Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Carl Levine, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Russ Feingold, Pat Leahy, Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, the Hollywood Leftist morons, et al, ad nauseam: Every time you stand in front of television cameras and broadcast to the Islamic Nazis that we went to war because our President lied, that the war is wrong and our Soldiers are torturers, that we should leave Iraq, you give the Islamic butchers – the same ones that tortured and mutilated American Soldiers – cause to think that we’ll run away again, and all they have to do is hang on a little longer. It is inevitable that we, the infidels, will have to defeat the Islamic jihadists. Better to do it now on their turf, than later on ours after they have gained both strength and momentum.

American news media, the New York Times particularly: Each time you publish stories about national defense secrets and our intelligence gathering methods, you become one united with the sub-human pieces of camel dung that torture and mutilate the bodies of American Soldiers. You can’t strike up the courage to publish cartoons, but you can help Al Qaeda destroy my country. Actually, you are more dangerous to us than Al Qaeda is. Think about that each time you face Mecca to admire your Pulitzer.

You are America ‘s ‘AXIS OF IDIOTS.’ Your Collective Stupidity will destroy us. Self-serving politics and terrorist-abetting news scoops are more important to you than our national security or the lives of innocent civilians and Soldiers. It bothers you that defending ourselves gets in the way of your elitist sport of politics and your ignorant editorializing. There is as much blood on your hands as is on the hands of murdering terrorists. Don’t ever doubt that. Your frolics will only serve to extend this war as they extended Vietnam . If you want our Soldiers home as you claim, knock off the crap and try supporting your country ahead of supporting your silly political aims and aiding our enemies.

Yes, I’m questioning your patriotism. Your loyalty ends with self. I’m also questioning why you’re stealing air that decent Americans could be breathing. You don’t deserve the protection of our men and women in uniform. You need to run away from this war, this country. Leave the war to the people who have the will to see it through and the country to people who are willing to defend it.

Our country has two enemies: Those who want to destroy us from the outside and those who attempt it from within.

Semper Fi,
J. D. Pendry – Sergeant Major, USMC, Retired

This is a savvy man. He has nailed it down pretty good. Too bad it won’t do any good. There won’t be 1 in 10 that receive it who will forward it.
