AMERICANS ARE HURTING – “CONGRESS COULD CARE LESS”!

After you read this send me a message and tell me how Congress and three vindictive Senators can take a month off when people are suffering. Our Congress is inhumane to keep the Obamacare debacle alive. I hope the voters remember every Democrat and the maverick RINO’s when they come up for re-election.

At the same time I can’t fathom why some news service does not compile a special report of actual facts of how health care costs are destroying working and retired Americans. If you hear younger Americans tell us seniors they are tired of paying for our Medicare they are not informed.

I will share some personal facts of how healthcare is effecting my retirement. I will also share two examples of the plight of two middle aged Americans, one is from my family regarding the insurance debacle. The sad part of this insurance disaster is that Congress and all government employees are exempt from the Obamacare disaster. They could care less as they have more than adequate insurance that we pay for most of their premiums with our taxes.

I retired nearly 24 years ago with one pension for 27 years service with what is now Lockheed-Martin. This provides us with a staggering $221.47 each month and no benefits. Now take a look at what Medicare provides and costs. We each pay $107.00 each month in premiums deducted from our Social Security, now named a Federal Entitlement. This is means tested and many retirees pay much more as they have higher incomes. We also pay for the first $185 of costs as a deductible or $370 total each year.

For the uninformed, Medicare only pays for 80% of medical costs and unless you are rich or a fool you have to buy a supplemental insurance policy to cover the 20%. This requires a policy just like those on Obamacare that is so-called competitive as the rates in each State are not the same. These premiums increase each year as you grow older regardless of your health. Being blessed with my 87th birthday this month and you reach this advanced age there is no competitive advantage to shop around for better rates as you are just too old. Currently the costs for Norma and I to be covered is $399.29 each month and these costs have increased twice in the past six months but who cares?

Bush #2 gave us old people another entitlement called Medicare part “D” for our drugs. This program is also competitive as you buy an insurance policy that has many options, choices and different premiums to chose from. These policies are so confusing my insurance agent for our Medicare refuses to even sell or recommend which insurance provider to buy from. As Norma takes much less prescription medication she has a policy with lower premiums and has a co-pay for her medication. In my case I have higher premiums and only have co-pay if their is no generic yet. Currently our monthly costs for prescribed drugs and premiums is about $210. In addition we take doctor recommended vitamins, aspirin, fish oil, bacteria for my colon and other assorted over the counter medical items. The Instaflex for my knees alone is $39 a month. This will easily average over $75 each month.

Speaking of my knees that are both bone on bone. My family doctor can inject steroids in my left knee every three months. I have to drive 128 miles to my referred Orthopedic Surgeon who administers three shots in my right knee every six months. Both doctors do not recommend surgery because I am just too old. Medicare pays for the steroid shots in my left knee and the shots injected by the Surgeon every six months. My main reason to include this information is to document why are there three and six month intervals. If I have to have the shots sooner Medicare will not pay for them. They cost $550 and $1800 each cycle. The doctors both told me there is no medical reason for the time periods but some bureaucrat in Washington decided that was what it would be. I do get a steroid shot in my right knee after four months as the series of shots never last six months.  

We have no coverage for dentistry work. Just yesterday I paid $210 to have my teeth cleaned and a getting a crown re-cemented in that came off when the hygienist was flossing my old teeth. Our average dental costs are $1500 each year.

Because I do not understand or trust the confusing Federal ograms I still maintain a catastrophic policy I have had for 50 years. It has a $25,000 deductible and cost $636 annually

To save you time our annual costs for healthcare is at least $13,279.00 at this time or $1,106.58 each month. Norma has not been admitted to a hospital since 1965 or 52 years ago. I have not been admitted to a hospital since 2004 or 13 years ago which means nothing for our insurance rates.

I hope those who think Medicare is free and are not government bureaucrats become aware of that planning for those “Golden Years” in advance is difficult.

Our daughter is in business for herself and is required to buy an Obamacare policy or pay a hefty tax penalty. She has not been hospitalized in the past seven years. Her policy premiums are some $800 a month and she has to pay $60 per visit any time she see’s her primary care doctor. She has no dental coverage and her policy has some other restrictions. It has a $6000 deductible clause. If her doctor refers her to a specialists the policy pays nothing until she reaches the $6,000. If the doctor send her to get any testing, X-Rays or lab work the policy pays nothing until the $6,000 deductible is met each year. If a generic drug exists they cost $5.00. If no generic drug exists the co-pay is extremely expensive. Some drugs are not even covered and she pays 100%. In the area she lives there are few choices and they keep disappearing as the insurance companies keep dropping out of the market. To keep her doctor she has been with for 25 years was a nightmare of bureaucratic paperwork.  

Can you imagine a government employee and especially a Congressperson screaming if they had a policy like hers or ours. They don’t have to worry as they are the new “Elite” class of Americans. When my grandchildren ask me what field of work to pursue I tell them either “healthcare” or “Government service”. These are the only fields with benefits as Obama killed benefits from most companies and the 40 hours work week. My son works for one of the largest companies in the world that offers no healthcare or retirement benefits to newly hired employees. Anyone who plans to live on Social Security is mindless. Why has this escaped exposure even from Fox News is scary?

I know a friend who works as hard as anyone I know. He is a maintenance worker and has no benefits. His wife also works and they have three small children. If she covers her husband and their children with her insurance she would have zero take home pay. The consequence is he and the three children must use Medicaid care where illegals have priority.

As the media or any well known journalist or commentator or even a well known Blog writer has never attempted to tell the real stories I will publish your story if desired? Maybe just one person in power in Washington might really understand.

I give up on Congress to help as they just play power games. Other matters are understandably important but to just sweep healthcare under the rug is hurting far too many deserving Americans. When two female Senators and John Mc Cain sank the repeal of Obamacare they betrayed their trust. Women I can understand are concerned about abortions and free birth control pill for even those on welfare. McCain who reversed his last vote, just voted no to punish Trump politically. Every pregnant woman who cares for everyone is still being punished because of these three Senators who hate President Trump. A really sad day for America folks when a “has been” Senator killed all hope to fix our healthcare to just stab Trump in the back. They used to call this Treason but Congress persons do not fear or support our laws they can just ignore them. Washington is broken but who cares? I do, do you? Please share this with every American possible.

COMMON SENSE SOLUTIONS!

The young lady who asked to be put in charge is describing how problems must be solved in any business. If you can’t produce dividends to shareholders who invested real money in a company it is bankrupt or worthless. That is called profit. When I was young the government did not give people money to sit on their butt and do nothing and if you were capable you worked for your subsistence. The entire National Park system was built by people who were unemployed, it was called a depression. They built roads and other infrastructure deemed needed by a government that thank God actually worked together to feed everyone.

This common sense method was how America was capable of producing everything required to win World War 11. This was America at its finest point and since we have watched our government systematically fall totally on its rear racing to become a socialistic democracy. If we were to be attacked tomorrow it would be nothing but chaos in Washington. Watching the 3 million consultants and lobbyist race to beat the bloated government employees away from any enemy target area. Congresspersons would have already left because they did not let the media warn the bloodsuckers and bureaucrats. I want to thank my good friend, Allan Moore for sending the following letter that was written by a smart young lady whose name was not revealed.

WRITTEN BY A 21 YEAR OLD FEMALE.

It’s her future she’s worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big government state that she’s being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in her opinion. This girl has a great plan! I love the last thing she would do the best.

This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco, TX.

PUT ME IN CHARGE…

Put me in charge of food stamps. No cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

Put me in charge of Medicaid. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.

Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your “home” will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

Put me in charge of checking pay stubs. You will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a “government” job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22-inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the “common good.”

Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be “demeaning” and ruin their “self-esteem,” consider that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self-esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

AND while on Government subsistence, you no longer can VOTE!

Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Government welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job. Now, if you have the guts – share this.   ANON

A Donald Trump is educated, trained, and has more experience in creating jobs than the entire Congress and every bureaucrat in our government. He has experienced failure and every failure has made him wiser.

Our government is so bloated with duplications, union rules, and waste it will take a while to “drain the swamp” as my Coonass friends across the lake would say. Our government today operates on an old adage “IF YOU CAN’T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU’VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM” The young lady’s letter reminds me of many situations I experienced during my last eleven years as a consultant. I worked in 32 countries and 49 states.

I dearly hope everyone that reads this will pass it on to everyone you know. Far too many Americans and probably many thousands of government employees have been on welfare all of their work life. I beg you to elect Trump and watch the fat trimming begin immediately.

If I were elected the first thing I would do is demand term limits for all elected and appointed friends including Federal Judges and the Supreme Court. Wallowing in the government sty has politicized every decision made in the Washington swamp. No wonder we are nearly nineteen trillion dollars in debt. Even at my soon to be 86 years old I would love to be turned loose in any part of the government looking for duplicity and waste. I would want no salary, just 10% of what could be saved with a common sense business mind.

VETERANS ADMINISTRATION FAILURES.

To hopefully get more Americans to demand that our veterans are treated at least as well as illegal aliens please share this with everyone. I wanted to re=blog this article after my latest article was published.

If every politician in Washington was required to have read this article and letter from Bob Kustermann that was published eleven months ago, Bob might still be alive. How we treat our veterans is inhumane at best. I followed this article with another plea titled “What has happened to America”on September 17, 2015 and it appears that no one really cares if we just let these brave Americans just die and go away.

In Bob’s last visit to the VA last month he was deathly ill and while they were arguing on what to do he checked himself out and went home to die at 69 waiting to start dialysis as his kidneys were failing. I wonder how many thousand times this happens every day? The saddest part of this story is that no one really seem to care. Is there anyone in America who knows how to get the attention of someone who will do something to shut down the Veterans hospitals and at least treat our veterans equally as we treat illegal aliens free.

I have some 550 people who read this blog and If they all send it to people on their mail list maybe a copy will find one of the people running for President. Maybe if FOX news and Megan Kelly would ask this question in one of the debates instead of trying to defeat Donald Trump with “Gotcha” questions it would get exposure from the biased media. If we had a media that cared this issue would have been fixed a long time ago. Two people commented on the original article. One was my son and the other was a friend from Melbourne Australia. Please read the following and help slow down this tragedy. C Brewer 

AMERICAN VETERANS CARE – RED TAPE AND DISCRIMINATION! Published March 25, 2015

I sincerely hope this article makes you sick. The only people we have treated worse than the Indians, including illegal aliens, are our military veterans. I am extremely qualified to state the facts and verify the specific facts documented in the letter I ask to post as I am a veteran of the military. I am not a veteran of any combat or foreign service although I have likely visited and worked in more foreign countries, thirty-two to be specific, than 96% of every lobbyist, Congressman or the White House “Kingdom”. I volunteered and with my parents approval, I joined the US Navy Reserve in 1947 when I was 17. The Korean War seemed imminent and I volunteered for active duty in April 1948 and was honorably discharged on August 30, 1952. I had to serve an additional year as all enlistments were extended during the Korean war.

I only asked one time for any federal veteran benefit, some help with some uninsured drugs, and it was denied because I was earning more than the current poverty level. I did earn a military funeral but I have ask my wife not to even notify anyone from our government except my Federal Entitlement benefit that used to be called Social Security so they will not harass her. Writing this blog demands that I read facts and when I read a copy of this letter in our weekly local Sabine County Reporter, it disturbed me deeply. To even think we treat our veterans worse than illegal aliens is unbelievable. In essence an eligible veteran is treated worse by our government than the Democrats and illiterates (some are not both), who never worked or intend to work and draw welfare.

Even Medicaid is more responsive as the new VA Choice Card. The fact that all doctors in rural areas are not qualified is just another bureaucratic waste of time and money. The fact that our only hospital director or Board had no information is just another way to deny veterans benefits equal to aliens. They should be given the same benefits as I receive with Medicare and the government should pay their deductibles and premiums that I have to pay. Shut down the Veterans hospitals or make them available to everyone. Set the veterans free from oppression.

Please read this and pass this on to everyone you know. The really sad part is that the media, including Fox, has reported this change as an added benefit to our veterans. For Gods sakes how can what this letter describes be viewed as an improvement of any kind.

Bob Kustermann  is a good friend on mine along with all of the other veterans in Sabine County Texas.

Dear Sir,

I am writing to ask for your help with the new VA Choice Card. I received mine about a month and a half ago and called the number that was on the card to make sure I was qualified for this benefit, which it turns out, I am.

I live in Hemphill, Texas with the nearest VA clinic in Lufkin, Texas, approximately 60 miles away. The information I received indicated that if you live more than 40 miles from the nearest VA clinic or your VA appointment was more than 30 days away, you could see a local doctor.  The VA also indicated that our local hospital, Sabine County Hospital, and local doctors are currently eligible to participate. 

When I first called, the VA asked for my information and said for me to call back in 7 days  to see if I was qualified.  The VA then informed me that if I needed an appointment with a local doctor to call them back and the VA would set up the appointment.  The VA then informed me it would take another 7 days to get this appointment approved, taking 14 days from the initial call to just schedule the appointment, not yet seeing a doctor for treatment.

One of my concerns is that I am required to have a physical exam twice a year.  In order to accomplish this I must travel the 60 miles to the Lufkin VA clinic two weeks in advance of my physical exam for blood work, and of course the 60 mile return trip, for a five-minute lab test.  I then have to make the 120 mile round trip two weeks later for the physical exam.  Many of the veterans I help in Sabine County cannot either physically make the trip to Lufkin or cannot financially afford the trip.

I recently was granted the opportunity to make a presentation on the VA Choice Card to our local Hospital Board.  Hospital Administrator Diana Taylor informed me that she has placed several phone calls and sent two emails to the VA within the past month requesting forms and other information to become eligible to participate in the program, but has received no response.

It is my understanding that there is only one local doctor that is eligible to participate in the program, but getting in to see him is a very lengthy process requiring the veteran to phone the VA and request an appointment with the local doctor; the veteran is then required to call the VA back in 5 to 7 days to find out when the appointment is scheduled with the local doctor; the appointment will likely be scheduled around 7 days away, with the total days spent now at 12 to 13 days; if a prescription is written by the doctor, it takes another 7 to 10 days to receive the medicine in the mail, making the total time thus far 19 to 23 days.

Common sense tells me that if a veteran has to wait up to 2 weeks for an appointment and 3 weeks before receiving medicine from the onset of their condition, the likelihood of the condition worsening, or become fatal, is a real possibility, requiring additional, and likely, more intense medical care.

The bureaucratic strings attached to the VA Choice Card are NOT helping veterans, but merely painting over and covering up systemic problems in a widely documented troubled agency.

Any assistance you can provide, not only to me but to all veterans to expedite their receipt of quality healthcare will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Robert Kustermann

I ask that you send a copy of this letter to every Congress Person, Governor, State Representative and Senator if you can get their address. Knowing Bob for many years and the hundreds of hours of community service he and many other veterans provide are vital for our rural County. My personal thanks to them all for all of their service. 

Goodbye old friend, Sabine County Texas will miss your always smiling face and your willingness to give far more to help your fellow-man than you ever received. This old man will never forget you. You suffered far beyond normal and sadly forgotten by your own country. It appears to me that our Veterans Administration administers euthanasia successfully by just ignoring our veterans condition. If a regular hospital did this it would be called murder. C Brewer February 10, 2016

HILLARY CLINTON FACTS! Part One

Watching politics for over 80 years reached a new low when Obama was elected the first time. After his re-election I was convinced that the average American has no idea what freedoms they are slowly losing or even care. My last article, “Joys of Muslim Women” will hopefully wake up enough females to at least know what their life will be like under Muslim laws. As I have stated before ladies just get ready to have your Burka ordered. For both parents of daughters make sure you are ready for them to be mutilated by law and suffer the rest of their lives.

I plan to continue this series of articles on what Hillary Clinton will enact or continue if she is elected as our next President.

GAY RIGHTS

During her 2008 bid for the Demoncratic nomination, she refused to support same-sex marriage. My how flexible a politician can be when she flip flopped and endorsed same-sex marriage in March 2013. Two of her quotes were “gay rights are human rights” and “LGBT Americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones. And they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights”.

Now she is in full support of the Obama Muslim invasion and their rights to be American citizens. Any babbling idiot fully understands that the Muslim faith does not accept “gays” in any form. One of the newest Muslim pleasures we have watched live on TV is pushing “gays” from the roof of tall buildings to see if they can soar like an eagle. Maybe Hillary will insist they get free flying lessons in America.

GLOBAL WARMING

Hillary is on record that she believes the Earth’s temperature is warming because of pollutants released into the atmosphere by man’s use of fossil fuels. She has supported cap-and-trade proposals to auction off pollution permits and using the proceeds to invest in green technology. You can be sure that “Old Bill” and her son-in-law have milked the commodity markets and are in the best position to prosper if our petroleum industry is totally destroyed by Obama. It will take the oil industry 20 years to become profitable again. You can be sure the Saudi’s will close the valves again when both the American and Russian oil industries are ruined.

Again Hillary is the “Flip-Flop Queen”. While serving as Secretary of State she also stated that the department was “inclined” to give its seal of approval to the controversial Keystone XL pipeline. At that political moment she he did not need the support from the idiotic tree hugging environmentalists who believe Keystone would result in an environmental catastrophe and increased pollution leading to global warming. Al Gore likely went berserk.

Her latest involvement was the following quote, “We’re either going to be dependent on dirty oil from the Gulf or dirty oil from Canada. And until we can get our act together as a country and figure out that clean, renewable energy is in both our economic interests and the interests of our planet, I mean, I don’t think it will come as a surprise to anyone how deeply disappointed the President and I are about our inability to get the kind of legislation through the Senate that the United States was seeking.”

Facts will be the Chinese will get most of the cheaper oil from Canada, the Saudi’s will cause the price of crude to be at least $100 a barrel again and Burlington Northern railroad and Warren Buffett can enjoy the oil transportation bonanza.

Health Care

Hillary supports universal health care, and championed her cause unsuccessfully during her husband’s presidency in 1993 and 1994. Clinton has said she still carries scars from her political battle to provide health care for all Americans.

One of her quotes was; “From my perspective, we have to lower costs, improve quality and cover everybody. What’s important and what I learned in the previous effort is you’ve got to have the political will – a broad coalition of business and labor, doctors, nurses, hospitals, everybody – standing firm when the inevitable attacks come from the insurance companies and the pharmaceutical companies that don’t want to change the system because they make so much money out of it”.

The record so far for Obamacare is a total disaster for Americans. Healthcare for the working person is no longer provided by the large Corporations as a benefit. The costs have skyrocketed for every American who is not a government employee including old folks like me on Medicare. I have no idea what Medicaid costs for the 65,000,000 Americans, the flood of Muslims and illegal aliens who pay nothing. Our veterans must use the Veterans Mis-Administration (VA) services which is far worse than those on Medicaid. The VA, like the Post Office, TVA, Amtrak and any other government managed operation is a total business disaster.

I had a new prescription filled yesterday to see if it will reduce the unsteadiness and pain from Neuropathy that is a life changing event. Two medications I have taken have not stopped the scare of falling again or the pain associated with the incurable nerve problems in my legs and feet. My wife and I pay over $800 a month for Medicare and the supplements necessary to avoid catastrophic medical expenses. This one new prescription costs $259.00 for my part for a 90 day period and if it helps it will be a blessing. I never expected to live what will be 86 years in August or to be viewed as a burden by our President, the media or the Congress and Supreme Court…

Taxes and the Middle Class

Hillary has repeatedly called for universal health care and lowering the costs of college tuition, raising taxes on wealthy Americans and helping struggling middle-class homeowners avoid foreclosure.

One of Hillary’s key quotes on helping the middle class by raising taxes on the wealthy: “One of the issues that I have been preaching about around the world is collecting taxes in an equitable manner — especially from the elites in every country. It is a fact that the elites in every country are making money. There are rich people everywhere, and yet they do not contribute to the growth of their own countries.”

Government Spending

Hillary raised concerns about the federal deficit and growing national debt during her tenure in President Barack Obama’s administration. One of her quotes on the national debt: “It poses a national security threat in two ways: it undermines our capacity to act in our own interest, and it does constrain us where constraint may be undesirable.”

Hillary did not blame Obama, however. Instead, she accused his predecessor, Republican President George W. Bush, of running up the debt by launching two wars, in Iraq and Afghanistan, in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks at the same time he successfully pushed through tax cuts that benefited the wealthiest Americans.

Another quote; “It is fair to say that we fought two wars without paying for them and we had tax cuts that were not paid for either, and that has been a very deadly combination to fiscal sanity and responsibility.

Do any of my readers have specific subjects they would like me to focus on next? If the entire media, all Progressive-Liberals, current Republican elected leadership, tree huggers, gays, illegal aliens, prisoners, Saudi’s, some European leaders and every registered dead American have their way, Hillary will be anointed Queen next January.

WOW……………………….Guess who will be “King”.

Let me wish every father a happy Fathers Day 2016 a day early. I will be waiting by the phone tomorrow to see how many of my 46 will call me.  Maybe six?

Wal-Mart vs. The Morons

My good friend Dan Fussel sent me this analogy of facts that put some interesting emphasis on how screwed up our government has become. America became the most powerful and successful country in the world because we allowed brilliant and creative individuals to improve so much creativity and success.

As our government grew and started creating taxes, regulations and focusing on what we can’t do instead of allowing the creative to help us prosper. Wal-Mart is a perfect example of how America was the land of opportunity. Now we watch Demoncrats doing everything possible to attack their success with demands we raise the minimum wage and provide fringe benefits just like they have in manufacturing things.

The liberals have killed our ability to make anything and we have watched millions of jobs flee America for countries that covet having work for its people. Folks, listen to Donald Trump who at least knows how to make money making things again. We have created a welfare class of citizens that is bankrupting us. 

Then we opened the borders to illegal aliens to work cheap but burden to give them healthcare, education and other social services that accelerate our path to financial ruin. Open your eyes and see that the future for our children will not provide them with the freedoms and success we enjoyed. Trump may be our last chance to fix the government that has gone mad with power and welfare to buy votes.  C Brewer 

PLEASE READ THIS TO THE END. IT IS VERY INTERESTING!!!

Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart Every hour of every day.

This works out to $20,928 profit every minute.

Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.

Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco+K-Mart combined.

Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world’s largest private employer, and most speak English.

Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.

Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years.

During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.

Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.

This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth’s population is approximately 6.5 Billion.)

90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart. You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that

MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy.

This should be read and understood by all Americans… Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature, it is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:

The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 240 years to get it right and it is broke.

Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 80 years to get it right and it is broke.

Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 77years to get it right and it is broke.

War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 51 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the poor” and they only want more.

Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 50 years to get it right and they are broke.

Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 45 years to get it right and it is broke.

The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 38 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.

You have FAILED in every “government service” you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.

AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??

Folks, keep this circulating. It is very well stated. Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our “duly elected’ (they never read anything) and their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel.

AND

I know what’s wrong. We have lost our minds to “Political Correctness”!!!!!!!

Someone please tell me what is wrong with all the people who run this country!!!!!!

We’re “broke” and can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc. and the last months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, and Turkey and now Pakistan (the previous home of bin Laden). literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!

Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed income’ receive no aid nor do they get any breaks.

AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without needed medicines, and mentally ill without treatment, etc.

Imagine if the GOVERNMENT gave U. S. the same support they give to other countries. Sad isn’t it?

And the Washington elite wonder why so many people identify with Donald Trump’s message – basically all of the above – and don’t trust the dishonest self-promoting Clintons with their self-enriching positions of power plays!

BEING UNITED SAVES AMERICA!

AN OLD CONSERVATIVE’S DREAM!

My good friend and golfing pal, ED Johnson, sent me a message with someone’s dream. I have decided to change the names and make several modifications, additions and express what would be my perfect dream. If someone knows who created the basic outline I will be happy to give them credit. I hope to wake up next November to and hopefully watch my dreams come true.

My dream was watching the inauguration that happened and the actions on and after January 20th 2017. 

1. President Donald Trump and Vice President Ted Cruz are sworn into office.

2. In a rare event on inauguration day, Congress convenes for an emergency meeting to repeal the illegal and unconstitutional Socialist healthcare farce known as Obamacare.  The new Director of Health and Social Services Dr. Ben Carson announces that an independent group of healthcare management professionals is hired to handle healthcare services for poor and low income people. They are also assigned the duty of eliminating Medicare and Medicaid fraud.  Government’s costs for public healthcare are reduced by 90%.  Healthcare insurance premiums for working Americans are reduced by 50%.  The move saves billions of taxpayer paid dollars.  Healthcare service in the U.S improves 100%.

3. Newly appointed department of Homeland Security Chief Marco Rubio announces the immediate deployment of Troops to the U.S. Mexico border to control illegal immigration and the immediate deportation of illegals with criminal records or links to terrorist groups.  New bio-encrypted Social Security ID’s are required by every American citizen.  Birthright is abolished. All immigration from countries that represent a threat to the safety of American citizens is terminated indefinitely. The move saves American taxpayers billions of dollars. Several prisons are closed.

4. Newly appointed Secretary of Business and Economic Development Carly Fiorina eliminates more than half of the Government agencies operating under the Obama administration saving taxpayers billions of dollars. Stocks rise 100%. 

5. Newly appointed Director of Government Finance, Rand Paul announces the abolition of the IRS and displays a copy of the new Federal Tax Return form.  It consists of one page.  The instructions consist of two pages. The Federal Reserve is audited. The move saves American Taxpayers billions of dollars and increases tax revenue.

6. Hillary Clinton is in jail, where she belongs.  Her cell is directly across from Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who are serving time for ‘Hate Crimes”.  She bitches at them constantly from behind the bars of her cell in what some might call cruel and unusual punishment.

7. Bernie Sanders is in the “Funny Farm” (asylum), where he belongs. His room is directly across from Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chris Matthews and Al Franken.  They meet for tea every day at ten and discuss the success and benefits of Communism and Socialism throughout the world. They also wonder when the “Mothership”’ is going to pick them up and return them to their home planets.

8. Windows 12 is released. It is designed for humans, doesn’t try to satisfy the needs of every person on the planet, doesn’t require a degree in nuclear physics to operate and looks just like Windows 7 except it is easier to use.

9. Barack Obama flees the United States under cover of darkness and returns to his homeland of Kenya before his trial for treason begins. He deplanes on a remote jungle airstrip. It was reported that he was last seen wandering through the jungle singing “Hakuna Matata” with a chimp named “Michelle” and two monkeys named “Joe” and “Valarie”.

10. A committee is established to determine what is causing global cooling. Billions of taxpayer dollars are saved. Polar Bears and Seals were applauding the action as the enlarging ice cap was attracting too many hunters who could travel easier.

11. Dead people, illegal aliens, cartoon characters and ACORN are no longer allowed to vote. Most Demoncrat politicians, especially in Chicago, South Texas and all red states are fleeing to other states, changing their names and hiding to avoid prison.

12. The Department of Energy was abolished and the newly reorganized Department of the Interior was made responsible for the drilling, production, transportation, sale, storage and purchase of oil, gas and coal. Initial study found that America would be 100% energy independent by 2020. It was announced that any energy purchased would be from Canada and Mexico. Gasoline prices dropped to 99 cents a gallon when all federal taxes were eliminated.

13. The Department of education was eliminated and every state was notified that any person in any teaching position that made any statements to students that were in conflict with the Constitution would face prison terms. Activity to change the Constitution would be permitted but not in any classroom. In other actions public teachers would be deputized to arrest students and/or parents who do not obey written discipline guidelines.

Suddenly I woke up before I finished listing other actions that should be taken. When I have another dream I will document my dreams as Part Two. If you have suggestions of other actions that should be taken, please send me your comments and/or register them as comments on my blog.

AMERICA – LAND of POLITICAL SLAVES!

It used to be “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave”. Unfortunately the “Brave” have become the minority.

I have multiple reasons for writing this article as just in my lifetime we have destroyed far too many freedoms for American citizens. Being born in 1930 about the only thing most Americans had was freedom from our own government to live the “American Dream”. There was no EPA, Energy Department, Social Security Administration, Education Department, thousands of lobbyist in Washington and we did not have a “Royal Family” to squander the tax dollars we paid. Yes things were tough for most Americans but we had charities and the churches that helped the Americans in need.

We had regulated immigration that was designed to improve American needs instead of creating the world’s largest unemployment abyss so that we can make work for the scum of the world who have no loyalty to America. When I read about the Muslims taking total control of cities in Michigan it makes my blood boil. They were escorted in by the Progressive-Liberals of both the Demoncrats and Republicans just to gain votes. An invasion and occupation of segments of America without firing one shot. They have never and will never accept our laws or our heritage like the Europeans who immigrated in the last century.

That’s bad enough but the real invasion has been from the South. Living in Texas all of my 85 years this invasion was rather regulated for most of my life. We have Mexican families that have been born as Americans for many generations.

Before I retired I was invited to both make a speech at a Mexican University and present a technical seminar in Mexico City. I has several Mexican companies I was providing consulting services for in Mexico at the time. The organization that was sponsoring the seminar sent me a copy of the promotional material describing the event which was obviously printed in Spanish. I took Spanish in the 4th grade when education was a State responsibility but it was no help to approve the draft. I had a Hispanic friend my age that I asked to translate the brochure draft and he had less knowledge about Spanish than I did.

I worked in 32 countries, including several Muslim nations and enjoyed over 25 years vacationing in Mexico with a time share in Puerto Vallarta. Mexico is a beautiful country and has wonderful people but the change in violence due to drugs is ruining what used to be a peaceful nation. I have no problem with immigration if it is regulated, but the recent invasion, supported by Demoncrats just for votes is total madness.

What prompted me to write this article was watching Harry “The Zombie” Reed explain why the Demoncrats were supporting the “Sanctuary Cities” decisions of no telling how many actual laws are being violated by them and create the abuse of natural born Americans. I worked more than desired in California, “The land of fruits and nuts”, but recent decisions to allow illegal aliens to vote is nuts.

Folks, America is in crisis mode and sadly most Americans are totally unaware of what is happening. They get their welfare checks, unemployment checks, food stamps, free stuff and Medicaid without having to work. If enough Americans don’t wake up next year and stop this folly they better prepare for Sharia Laws and learn to speak Spanish. One thing is certain, they will not have all of this “Free Stuff” when America becomes a Socialist Democracy.

Lawless society will be the downfall of America if we stay leaderless much longer. Like everything there is a bottom line in my message. We have one American running for President that has the gonads to stop all of this fright in Donald Trump. Unless Emperor Obama does not declare Marshall Law and skip the election next year America has a chance to be great again. It is time for all freedom loving Americans to band together and stop the destruction of our Republic. I hope we use the ballot box rather than the ammunition box to bring America back to the greatest country ever created. Work is better than bleeding.

DONALD TRUMP – PART FOUR

My reason for publishing this series is to document the factual positions that Trump has actually promised he would use to improve every one’s life in America, white, black, and yellow. He has never shown any bias except when dealing with inept individuals. There is no place on earth populated with more inept people than Washington D.C. I will repeat my reason for trying to get voters to make sure we elect a leader with a proven success record. Liking Trump is not a factor and the other individuals who are capable leaders I could support like Cruz, Fiorina, Carson or Kasich have zero chance of being nominated as they don’t have enough financial support. The rest of the candidates are pure politicians that will promise everything and deliver nothing.

If you will get beyond not liking Trump’s boisterous demeanor and focus on his agenda you will see that his overall objectives are aimed at common sense objectives that will help everyone. I don’t agree on some of his objectives or his flamboyant persona but if he can just get jobs created alone he can stop the bleeding. How many of the people running for President, both Democrats and Republicans, have created as many jobs for Americans as Trump has?  

How many politicians have we watched that have promised to fix the federal tax system? How many actually changed the system? None. Trump has promised to not only make it better for all individual Americans, but also to find ways to encourage businesses to remain in the US. He has promised to develop incentives to attract foreign businesses to move to America. His objective is to make America the most attractive place in the world to do business. Sure that is a real challenge but it is possible with a proven leader motivating Congress to perform sensibly again.

He has promised to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. I have read that this would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs. His plan is to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax. He also wants to create incentives to companies that agree to move jobs back to the USA.

Trumps tax plan would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. The facts that I read reveal that his recommended personal income tax plan will be:

  1. Income up to $30,000 will be taxed at 1%.
  2. Income from $30,000 to $100,000 will be taxed at 5%.
  3. Income from $100,000 to $1,000,000 will be taxed at 10%.
  4. Income from $1,000,000 and above will be taxed at 15%.

Trump has gone on record that Obamacare is a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity”. He is convinced it “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.” He feels certain that allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace will drive prices down. Trump supports tort reform to eliminate the costs of defensive medicine and the outlandish cost of malpractice insurance. Trump is on record that Obamacare must be repealed. Based on his comments about the Canadian healthcare program I believe that Trump will support a single payer healthcare system.

Unlike most conservative writers, a plan that demands that all able bodied Americans pay into the plan is the only common sense solution to all of the problems. This would help everyone and the doctors who are having to find other occupations because of the insurance penalty. If lawyers were required to pay malpractice insurance, it might even the playing field.

Trump wants Congress to enact severe spending reforms. He pin points that it is only common sense to understand that spending more than you receives in revenue is absolute failure. He has gone on record that if America can’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion, no one will be able to save this country.

He has made it clear that we must cut spending. He has promised that he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. His plan is to revive and increase the economy by increasing the taxable revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients.

Trump has documented his objection to the only solution the Democrat’s ever have, which is raising taxes. History has proven that every time they raise taxes they destroy the economy. Trump is right in his belief and history proves that when you lower taxes you create an environment to help businesses grow, hire more workers and those new workers will be paying taxes that increase revenue. This is nothing more than “Business Common Sense 101”. C Brewer

WHY WE ARE GOING BROKE?

Maybe Trump is more accurate than we give credit for.

The biggest factor why seniors are losing more and more benefits. They are getting blamed for the country going broke.  

It’s easy to dismiss individual programs that benefit non-citizens until they’re put together and this picture emerges.

Someone did a lot of research to put together all of this data. Often these programs are buried within other programs making them difficult to find.  

A Real Eye Opener….WHY the USA is going BANKRUPT? Read this:      

We have been hammered with the propaganda that it was the Iraq war and the war on terror that is bankrupting us.    

I hope the following eleven reasons are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the readers gets sick of reading them. I also have included the URL’s for verification of all the following facts.

  1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal immigrants each year by state governments.      

http://www.fairus.org/site/PageServer?pagename=iic_immigrationissuecenters7fd8

  1. $22 Billion dollars a year is spent on food Assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC,  and free school lunches for illegal immigrants.

  1. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal immigrants.

http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.HTML   

  1. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English!

http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt…0.HTML      

  1. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal immigrants, known as Anchor babies.

http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.HTML                                             

  1. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal  immigrants.  

http://transcripts.cnn.com/%20TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.HTML

  1. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal  immigrants.      

https://owa.slugger.com/owa/UrlBlockedError.aspx

  1. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal immigrants   for Welfare & social   by the American taxpayers.

http://premium.cnn.com/TRANSCIPTS/0610/29/ldt.01.HTML

  1. $200 Billion dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal immigrants.

http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRI

    10. In 2006, illegal immigrants sent home $45 BILLION in remittances to their Countries of origin. Off The Dark Side Illegal Immigration: Nearly One  million sex crimes committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States.     

http://www.drdsk.com/articleshtml

The total cost is a whopping $338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR AND IF YOU’RE LIKE ME, HAVING TROUBLE   UNDERSTANDING THIS AMOUNT OF MONEY; IT IS $338,300,000,000.00 WHICH WOULD BE ENOUGH TO STIMULATE THE ECONOMY FOR THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY.    

Are we THAT Stupid?    

YES, FOR ALLOWING THOSE IN THE U.S. CONGRESS TO GET AWAY WITH DOING THIS YEAR AFTER YEAR!!!!!          

If this doesn’t bother you, then just delete the message.    

If, on the other hand, it does raise the hair on the back of your neck, I hope you will share this with every Legal Resident in the United States you know like I have done!

My great friend Connie E, from Humble TX sent this to me.

OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA – COPIES TO 534 IN CONGRESS!

I feel sure we have at least one person in Congress who would agree?

What on earth happened to “common sense” in America? Will our elected officials ever stop their political wars long enough to see what they have already destroyed. The United States has only one major problem which is wasted resources. We have changed the entire work ethic just in my lifetime. Every one of our elected officials knows that jobs have saved this country every time we have a crisis.

I listen to our President repeatedly read on his teleprompter that the infrastructure in America is crumbling. I seriously doubt he has personally observed mush but it is a serious problem. I doubt that anyone in Congress disagree. Why don’t we fix it? The President and the Democrats want to borrow on our children’s future to modernize our crumbling parks, roads, bridges, slums and civic services. The Republicans with closed minds and fights with each other just say no and ignore the wasted resources we have doing nothing. Wake up Washington we have all of the resources we just don’t use them.

When I was a boy we had no large park system or decent roads in most of America. Our government back then had enough “common sense” to create jobs to improve America by using able bodied citizens to do the work. We had no food stamps, Medicaid, SSI, and the other hundreds of freebies like Obama phones to pay for. Let me share some statistics that blew me away when I just decided to open my eyes and study them.

The latest U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), revealed that we had 2,266,800 adults incarcerated in U.S. federal and state prisons, and county jails at year-end 2011. It is not rocket science to be certain we have more today. They show that we also had 4,814,200 adults on probation or on parole. Wow, Over 7,000,000 adults that owe something to society and except for the ones who work free for Sheriff Joe, over 2,000,000 sitting in jails doing nothing for improving anything. What a waste of free labor because of the ACLU and our Political Supreme Court.

Additional statistics I stumbled across searching for facts were equally interesting. 

  1. We have 10,200,000 adults drawing unemployment.
  1. We have 82,679,000 people on Medicaid.
  1. A total of 109,631,000 people are on welfare.
  1. Unbelievably we have 51,471,000 people on food stamps.
  1. We have 22,358,000 receiving women and children Social Security benefits.
  1. There are 20,358,000 people drawing SSI payments.
  1. Last Thursday’s Labor Department report showed we had 430,000 people of working age (16 or older) that just dropped out of the workforce.

I could spend a lot of my time and waste yours by calculating statistical scenarios that are unnecessary to make my point. We have way more than enough people already getting paid for doing nothing and setting in jails and prisons to rebuild everything and not cost one red cent.

Our local roads could use a lot of help here in the woods of East Texas. I would like to bring up one more question that I could not find statistics to report. I wonder how many of the millions of people in the statistics I did gather above are illegal aliens? It’s for sure that Obama or Congress will never let us know. Does anyone out there care? I do!

Apparently asking those in prison, drawing unemployment or receiving welfare to actually do some work to improve the infrastructure is out of the question. This would be unfair and “common sense”. So we welcome illegals to come in to work and instead of working they just get on the same freebie wagon and enjoy the ride. The welfare train is headed for a derailment and these hobo’s better get ready for the wreck. We don’t have any vacancies in our prisons and Mexico likely will not let any of them live there. Sic’um Donald Trump we need to close the borders.
