CHER SUPPORTS CHAZ ON DANCING WITH THE STARS


Activist and transgender,Chaz Bono, is supported by his mother, the legendary CHER. Celebrity lawyer, Nancy Grace,  tells haters and those who accuse ABC of a “homosexual agenda,” to find something better to do.  If there was a “homosexual agenda,” I say  that it would the same as the “American agenda” which is to seek and love the rights and freedoms all Americans can enjoy in the pursuit of happiness.  Isn’t that true for you?  Yes?  Then from now on, support EQUAL CIVIL RIGHTS FOR ALL AMERICANS! Watch this coverage on CNN:

CONGRESS: IS IT TIME TO VOTE THE OLD LIONS OUT?


TEA PARTY HIJINKS

Recently, we saw what freshman congressmen can do in The House to screw up the works.  For a very long time we have complained about gridlock in Congress, but our pleas for movement on issues have fallen on deaf ears.  Perhaps some of our senators and representatives have been in The Congress long enough.  Please peruse these charts on Wikipedia and see which members have been around too long. Yes, longevity gives a member power, membership on choice committees, chairmanships, etc., but, at what cost to the people who opinions they ignore?  Gridlock has been going on in The Congress for decades.  The Tea Party is just the latest iteration. I suggest that The Constitution be amended to allow for recalling members of Congress for cause.

Today, we learned that we have wasted $60 billion dollars on contractors and bribes in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Why isn’t Eric Cantor calling for spending cut here?  Why isn’t Eric Cantor calling for all our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan be brought home immediately?  We would save $1.4 trillion dollars in reduced spending which would solve our most pressing economic problem!

Each day we see members of Congress being interview on TV, but, on the six o’clock news we don’t hear of this and that legislation being enacted into law.  Witness: The 112th Congress has been “working” for eight months and have not passed a jobs bill. And, they won’t own up and tell us why.  Maybe, “throw the bums out!”

“VIRGINIA IS FOR LOVERS”

SOCIAL SECURITY IS A PONZI SCHEME, RICK?


Candidate Rick Perry says that “Social Security is a ponzi scheme…” and “a fraud. I thought I should check the dictionary:

Definition of PONZI SCHEME

: an investment swindle in which some early investors are paid off with money put up by later ones in order to encourage more and bigger risks

Definition of FRAUD

1
a : deceit, trickery; specifically : intentional perversion of truth in order to induce another to part with something of value or to surrender a legal right b : an act of deceiving or misrepresenting : trick
2
a : a person who is not what he or she pretends to be : impostor; also : one who defrauds : cheat b : one that is not what it seems or is represented to be

Rick, is this what you think the federal government has been doing all these years?  As one who benefits from Social Security, like my parents and millions of other seniors, I, say “Your comment is trivial.  The American people want to hear you say how you will reform Social Security for future seniors.  Have you got a plan?  We are tired of slogans and distortions. Social Security is one of the greatest achievements of Democrats.  You pay into the system so that you will benefits when you retire. Not enough workers are paying into the system to keep the system running.  I can see the comparison with a ponzi scheme, but, the goal of Social Security is not a huge payoff at the end. Just a modest income that ensures some measure of quality of life survival.   Social Security will run out of money eventually without reform.. Presently, the program needs more revenue.  That means, Rick Perry, we need to hear your jobs plan, if elected. Rick, do you, like the Tea Party, oppose revenue raises (taxes)? You, Republicans, want to destroy our success with privatizing Social Security to increase Republican wealth.  You want to give us insignificant coupons from the Treasury to go into the indifferent insurance industry to buy healthcare. That system does not work for us. Witness!

Governor Perry, somehow you qualified to be the head of a state government, but, for Republicans to select you as its standard bearer, you will have to present original ideas that show you are a deep thinker.  Good Ole Boy charm won’t win a Presidential election.

PRESIDENT OBAMA ASKS FOR INVITE TO SPEAK AT CONGRESS


“Today [08/31/11] I asked for a joint session of Congress where I will lay out a clear plan to get Americans back to work. Next week, I will deliver the details of the plan and call on lawmakers to pass it.

Whether they will do the job they were elected to do is ultimately up to them.

But both you and I can pressure them to do the right thing. We can send the message that the American people are playing by the rules and meeting their responsibilities — and it’s time for our leaders in Congress to meet theirs.

And we must hold them accountable if they don’t.

So I’m asking you to stand with me in calling on Congress to step up and take action on jobs:

http://my.barackobama.com/Time-To-Act

No matter how things go in the weeks and months ahead, this will be an important challenge for our organization.

It’s been a long time since Congress was focused on what the American people need them to be focused on.

I know that you’re frustrated by that. I am, too.

That’s why I’m putting forward a set of bipartisan proposals to help grow the economy and create jobs — that means strengthening our small businesses, giving needed breaks to middle-class families, while taking responsible steps to bring down our deficit.

I’m asking lawmakers to look past short-term politics and take action on that plan. But we’ve got to do this together.”

Texas Is On Fire. Will Gov. Perry Ask President Obama for Aid?


There are many Republicans who are proponents of “smaller government.” Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, toyed with seceding from our Union of 50 states. Yet, when disaster comes, we see Republican governors quickly ask the federal government for aid. Texas is now ablaze.  I wonder how long it will take Gov. Perry (R-TX) to request money from President Obama (D-IL). Here’s a window on the fire:
