A Senior Citizen Lashes Out
I was perusing through my emails over the weekend and came across this from a Mr. Skinny Ass. Now, I don't know who Mr. Skinny Ass is, but I want to thank him for sending this my way. Here is what this email is all about. Back in August of 2010, Alan Simpson, Senator from Wyoming , called Senior Citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared "Social Security" to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats. The co-chair of President Barack Obama's bipartisan deficit commission lashed out at seniors because they are unhappy with his ideas for reducing the deficit by cutting Social Security benefits while reducing corporate taxes. "I've never had any nastier mail or [been in a] more difficult position in my life," Simpson told Jeremy Pelzer at the Casper Star-Tribune. "Just vicious. People I've known, relatives [saying], 'You son of a bitch. How could you do this?'" Well, here is what one unknown Senior Citizen had to say.
"Hey Alan, let's get a few things straight..
1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole for FIFTY
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 ambition losers in return for votes, thus
bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme
that would have made 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 is 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 money from Medicare to pay the
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.
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
To add insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for calling "bullshit"
on your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions
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
3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?
4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare 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
nutcases who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from
millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.. And for what? Votes.
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.
Talk like this warms the cockles of my heart. The facts are that "We The People" pay into Social Security and damn it we want our money and we want it now! If these pinheads in Washington have pissed away our Social Security money I say we storm the Capitol and take back our government. of course, most of the people storming the ramparts will be using walkers, canes and wheelchairs which means it may take a while.
I was driving past the Hotel Sterling this past week and noticed that someone paved the part of River Street right next to the hotel. This new black top is right where they have it blocked off to traffic. ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME! They pave the part of the road where no one can go! They need to pave W. Market St right by the Guard building. I hit that pot hole the other day and lost a nut.

This one is a no brainer. Ariel Castro may actually be the schmuck of the century. If you don't know what he did then you should take the bridge.
