Congress In Action????

The Americans With No Abilities Act (ANAA)
Senators are considering introducing legislation that will provide new benefits for many more Americans. The Americans With No Abilities Act is being hailed as a major legislative goal by advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills and ambition.
“Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society,” said California Senator Kamala Harris. “We can no longer stand by and allow People of Inability (POI) to be ridiculed and passed over. With this legislation, employers will no longer be able to grant special favors to a small group of workers, simply because they have some idea of what they are doing.
In a Capitol Hill press conference, Nancy Pelosi pointed to the success of the U.S. Postal Service, which has a long-standing policy of providing opportunity without regard to performance. At the state government level, the Department of Motor Vehicles also has an excellent record of hiring Persons with No Ability
Under the Americans With No Abilities Act, more than 25 million mid-level positions will be created, with important-sounding titles but little real responsibility, thus providing an illusory sense of purpose and performance.
Finally, the Americans With No Abilities Act contains tough new measures to make it more difficult to discriminate against the non-abled, banning, for example, discriminatory interview questions such as, “Do you have any skills or experience that relate to this job? “As a non-abled person, I can’t be expected to keep up with people who have something going for them,” said Mary Lou Gertz, who lost her position as a lug-nut twister at the Toyota plant in Georgetown, KY due to her inability to remember “righty tighty, lefty loosey”. “This new law should be real good for people like me. I’ll finally have job security.” With the passage of this bill, Gertz and millions of other untalented citizens will finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. Senator Dick Durbin, II, said: “As a senator with no abilities, I believe the same privileges that elected officials enjoy ought to be extended to every American with no abilities. It is our duty as lawmakers to provide each and every American citizen, regardless of his or her inadequacy, with some sort of space to take up in this great nation and a good salary for doing so.

This message was approved by Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Diane Feinstein, Kamala Harris, Maxine Waters, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, Chuck Schumer, Jeff Flake, Chris Van Holland, AO-C, Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi…….. all of whom certainly are; Americans With No Abilities whatsoever!

Tap Dancing Debbie

I can’t take it anymore!

I just shut off a news program after the host asked Congresswoman Debbie Dingle from Michigan if the Democrats were going to start focusing on getting things done instead of trying to bring down the president. Ms DIngle was remarkably flexible in her change to a new subject. Instead of answering the question she shifted to why she won’t vote to support Trump’s deal with the Mexicans. She insists that there must be some form of verification by the Mexicans that they are doing as promised. Probably not a bad idea, but not enough to warrant keeping the deal from going through.

The president’s new tactic to circumvent our badly written immigration laws shows his diligence in trying to solve a problem created by our legislators. A bigger problem is that our legislators will not act to revise the laws. They merely sit on their hands and tell us how overworked they are and how they need a raise. They did have time to propose a bill to raise their salaries. I guess facing TV cameras and answering questions by cable news companies is straining them. Oh how I feel for these poor politicians. I’d say that ninety percent of Americans would be very happy making $178,000 per year. I am a college educated engineer who spent forty years managing as many as a hundred professionals in a stressful manufacturing operation and I never came anywhere close to making that much. I got fifteen work days off to spend with  my family. These congressional creatures work 145 days out of 261 (116 days off). My eyes are dripping alligator tears for these poor, poor overworked minions.

Sadly, we can’t fire them. Our laws protect them from being fired. We the people can recall a political figure, but the effort to do so is monumental. We could impeach them, but this process is also monumental. There is a desperation move referred to as the tax payer relief shot, but that is counter productive to the solitary implementer. So we are stuck with our single vote every two years for congressmen and six years for senators. The trouble with the vote is that these good soldiers are so attached and faithful to their parties that voting them out becomes a mortal sin for the voter. Political parties are known for spending millions to keep their faithful in office.

My options are limited to complaining on this blog with the hopes that some reader willl be converted to my point of view and vote with me.

If you are too young to know what a tap dancer is watch this video it will brighten your day.

Funny but Sad

The World As We Know It

A friend just made my day with this bit of information. I don’t know if any of it is true. If it is, it explains why America is in trouble. If it isn’t, I commend the author for having told some pretty crazy stories.

This is priceless….says a lot about why things are the way they are in government!

A DC ‘airport ticket agent’ offers some examples of why the US is in so much trouble!

I love this as the ticket agent actually names names!

1.  I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman (Carol Shea-Porter) ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn’t get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!)

2.  I got a call from a Kansas Congressman’s (Moore) staffer (Howard Bauleke), who wanted to go to Cape Town . I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then he interrupted me with, ”I’m not trying to make you look stupid, but Cape Town is in Massachusetts ” Without trying to make him look stupid, I calmly explained, ”Cape Cod is in Massachusetts , Cape Town is in South Africa .”   His response — click.. 

3.  A senior Vermont Congressman (Bernie Sanders) called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando . He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that’s not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state. He replied, ‘Don’t lie to me!, I looked on the map, and Florida is a very THIN state!!” (OMG)  

4.  I got a call from a lawmaker’s wife (Landra Reid) who asked, ”Is it possible to see England from Canada ?” I said, ”No.”She said, ”But they look so close on the map” (OMG, again!) 

5. An aide for a cabinet member (Janet Napolitano) once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas .. I pulled up the reservation and noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas … When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, ”I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time.” (Aghhhh)

6. An Illinois Congresswoman (Jan Schakowsky) called last week. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 a.m, and got to Chicago at 8:33 a.m. I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois , but she couldn’t understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went fast, and she bought that.

7. A New York lawmaker, (Jerrold Nadler) called and asked, ”Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to whom?” I said, ‘No, why do you ask?’ He replied, ”Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I’m overweight. I think that’s very rude!”After putting him on hold for a minute, while I looked into it. (I was dying laughing). I came back and explained the city code for Fresno , Ca is (FAT – Fresno Air Terminal), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on his luggage..

8. A Senator John Kerry aide (Lindsay Ross) called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii . After going over all the cost info, she asked, ”Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii ?”

9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman, Bobby Bright from Ala. who asked, ”How do I know which plane to get on?” I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, ”I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these planes have numbers on them.”

10 Senator Dianne Feinstein called and said, ”I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola , Florida . Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?” I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola and fly on a commuter plane She said, ”Yeah, whatever, smarty!”

11  Mary Landrieu, La. Senator, called and had a question about the documents she needed in order to fly to China . After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded her that she needed a visa. “Oh, no I don’t. I’ve been to China many times and never had to have one of those” I double checked and sure enough, her stay required a visa. When I told her this she said, ”Look, I’ve been to China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express!”

12 A New Jersey Congressman (John Adler) called to make reservations, ”I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York .” I was at a loss for words. Finally, I said, ”Are you sure that’s the name of the town?” ‘Yes, what flights do you have?” replied the man. After some searching, I came back with, ”I’m sorry, sir, I’ve looked up every airport code in the country and can’t find a rhino anywhere.” ”The man retorted, ”Oh, don’t be silly! Everyone knows where it is Check your map! ”So I scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, ”You don’t mean Buffalo , do you?” The reply? ”Whatever! I knew it was a big animal.”

Now you know why the Government is in the shape it’s in! Could ANYONE be this DUMB, THEY WALK AMONG US, ARE IN POLITICS, AND THEY CONTINUE TO BREED.

Civil War?

SleepingPoliticians-1.png

While Obama was running for his first presidential term I predicted that there would be civil war fought in our country. The division that occurred between the left and the right without any middle ground seemed to be too huge to keep it from happening. The war has not happened, at least not a shooting war, but we are still divided even more so today than in 2008. The democrats had all the power; a leftist president, and Democrats were the majority in both houses. There was no stopping them. The unaffordable Care Act was approved by bull dozing through without any prior review by either house. We as citizens criticized our leaders for not reading the bill. The plain and simple fact was that they were not given an opportunity to read it. Had they the chance there would have been public outcry to stop the bill before it came to a vote.

Currently, the Republicans have the power, and I fully expect them to squander the opportunity to do some real good for the country. How many of you remember Obama putting down John McCain by Obama for daring to present an argument against the ACA. Obama very arrogantly told him the elections have consequences and I won you lost. The democrats rallied around that audacity and steam rolled the country into believing their bill was the salvation of the country. After the ACA passed and it became obvious that it had major problems, Obama again arrogantly changed the law to his satisfaction without any notification of Congress, a violation of his authority and against the law. The Democrats totally supported him because he was the Messiah and the ACA was to magic cure-all bullet.

This week, I heard Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer from New York cry that  Republican Senators  won’t compromise and allow the Democrats to ruin new efforts to make the bill into something that could work. What upset me was a lack of outrage by Republicans. I never heard any of them say that elections have consequences, and we won, you lost. I have this feeling that Republicans still think the Democrats are willing to compromise for the good of the country. They are not willing to do anything but to win for their corrupt party.

It is sad that the press, and the Democrats get so worked up when President Trump fights back against some of the BS they throw at him. The Press truly get upset that anyone should treat them in this manner. What they don’t fully understand is that the civil war I have alluded to is taking place, and they are the enemy. They lament that they are only trying to do their job, they don’t deserve to be denigrated and on. They still don’t get that they are the problem, and when they spew there falsities as fact we the reader have no fact checker to check them with. To them I say, get over it, we won you lost. If the want us to treat them appropriately, they can begin by reporting fairly and honestly without bias to either side. Instead they choose to be on the side of the enemy. I say to you, keep plenty of fresh kleenex in your pockets to catch the alligator tears you will shed when recoil against you when you spew lies at us.

Another point that has me upset is that there are factions within the Republican party that fight against their own people. The Congress resembles the war in Syria; Syrians against Syrians, rebels against Syrians, ISIS against everybody, the USA against ISIS, and the Russians against the rebels. Mark my word, there will soon be a video game depicting this scenario. I hope the developer sends a free copy to every member of the Senate so they can learn from it.  What a mess.

One Pissed Off Woman

crrawford.jpg

Today, I received an e-mail from a retired Air Force Colonel. It contains a letter from a lady named Patty Meyers. I checked it with Snopes, and they declare it Mixed. The reason it is mixed is because they cannot attribute all the statements to Patty Meyers. What that tells me is that Snopes wants to discredit this piece because it highlights problems created by Liberals. The letter refers to the last time Congress had to bail out Social Security several years ago. The problem is relevant again because the fix of kicking the can down the road has caused us to reach the can again. The root cause of this problem stems from the Democrat President Lyndon Johnson who asked Congress to remove Social Security from it’s trust fund protection  and to put the fund into the general budget. His argument was that his Great Society could benefit by the infusion of cash, and the government would make good on the money it was now borrowing from Social Security. Well folks, good old Lyndon is long dead and the Congress that voted this plan into law is also gone except for a few of the career guys like Alan Simpson who voted for the changes. The simple fact is that your Social Security comes from your paycheck and your employer contributes an equal amount. The money funnels into the general fund and Congress spends it on their generous social programs that benefit.

It is real easy to give away other peoples money which is what Congress does for a living. The problem is that they spend it faster than you give it to them, and with millions baby boomers retiring Uncle is in a lot of trouble. I will wager that if someday they eliminate Social Security payments they will continue to withdraw money from your check.

Alan Simpson currently works for President Obama on a special commission to propose ways to reduce the federal deficit.

Read the letter below, you will laugh cry and get angry all at the same time.  You may also begin to understand why Donald Trump is doing well in the primaries.

Alan Simpson, the former Senator from Wyoming, calls senior citizens the ‘Greediest Generation’ as he compared “Social Security” to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.

Here’s a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana … I think she is a little ticked off! She also tells it like it is!
………………………………………………………………………………
Hey, Alan, let’s get a few things straight!!!!!

1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for FIFTY YEARS.

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 losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud.

4. Recently, just like Lucy and 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” are 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” propose to change the rules of the game.
Why? Because “you” mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.

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. Why? Because you “incompetents” 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 debt. To add insult to injury, you label us “greedy” for calling “bullshit” to your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU:

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 American taxpayers?

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?

5. It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the “greedy” ones.

6. It is you and your fellow thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes, your job and retirement security at our expense.

7. That’s right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.

8. And you can take that to the bank.

NO, I did not stutter.
P.S. And stop calling Social Security benefits “entitlements”. WHAT AN INSULT! I
have been paying into the SS system for 48 years. It’s my money give it back to me the way the system was designed and stop patting yourself on the back like you are being generous by doling out these monthly checks.

Bad Ass

5 Things You Should Know About Bibi Netanyahu
March 3, 2015

by Smith Callen

Screen-Shot-2015-02-26-at-7.36.37-AM-640x480

Many Americans who have never heard Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before, were left in awe of his command presence when taking the stage, and also his ability to rhetorically demolish 0bama’s absurd rhetoric about a nuclear Iran to bits.
On the outside, we can all see the visible attributes that makes Bibi such an incredible leader, and wish we had a leader who stood up to terrorists and Islamofascists, instead of appeasing them.
But what you probably didn’t know is that Bibi was quite the badass in his youth, and before taking over as Israel’s leader, he racked up quite the impressive list of accomplishments, as well as made incredible sacrifices for his country.
As compiled by IJReview, here are 5 badass things you probably didn’t know about Bibi:

1. War hero

benjamin-netanyahu
The Israeli leader enlisted in the IDF at the young ate of 18, serving in an elite commando unit. He went on to fight in three different wars for his country.
Below: Bibi during a special forces assault of a terror compound

2. Has taken bullets for his country

Ceremony
Deployed on many dangerous special forces missions throughout his military career, Bibi took a bullet in the shoulder while attempting to rescue the passengers of a plane hijacked by terrorists in 1972. He served on the front lines in the Yom Kippur War, where he was almost killed in the Suez Canal .

Benjamin Netanyahu Retrospective

Above: Lieutenant Benjamin Netanyahu during a ceremony to honor the Soldiers from his Sayeret Matkal commando unit. Here he is greeted by then Israeli President Zalman Shazar.

3. His family paid the ultimate sacrifice for  Israel

book
During the famous “Raid on Entebbe” in Uganda, Lt. Colonel Jonathan Netanyahu, Bibi’s brother, paid the ultimate sacrifice for his country, as he was killed in action while leading his special forces troops attempting to rescue 100 of his countrymen who had been held hostage on a hijacked flight by Palestinian and East German terrorists.
Not a single hostage was killed, and Netanyahu — the siege’s commander — was the sole Israeli casualty in an operation that is still taught in military schools to this day. ( Hollywood even made a film of it starring Charles Bronson.)

4. Super Smart

college grad
Not only a tough as nails soldier, Bibi is also as smart as a whip.
He earned degrees in Management and Architecture, from two of the most prestigious schools in America — Harvard and MIT. He would go on to be recruited to work for Boston Consulting in 1976, as a coworker of Mitt Romney and eventually becoming a personal friend.

5. One of the most successful politicians in history

Bibi flag

He has held these positions since entering Israeli politics:
·         Deputy Chief of Mission , Israeli Embassy in Washington , DC (’82-’84)
·         Ambassador of Israel to the United Nations (’84-’88)
·         Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs (’88-’91)
·         Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office (’91-’92)
·         Chairman of Likud, Leader of the Opposition (’93-’96)
·         Prime Minister (’96-’99 & ’09-present)
·         Israeli Foreign Affairs Minister (’02-’03)
·         Israeli Finance Minister (’03-’05)
·         All around badass (1949-present)

And Netanyahu has now addressed Congress as many times as Winston Churchill.

Churchill
So before Barack Obama (who can be seen below during his drug-addled “Choom Gang” phase, at the same exact age as the Bibi that accompanies him) tries to further mess with Netanyahu, he might wish to review the list above.
Bibi is a true bad-ass.

As opposed to 0bama who is just an ass.

No Disrespect Intended

five-monkeys

PSYCHOLOGY-101 HUMAN BEHAVIOR EXPERIMENT If you start with a cage containing five monkeys, and inside the cage hang a banana on a string from the top, and then you place a set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray ALL the monkeys with cold water.

After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same result — ALL the monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it. Now, put the cold water away.

Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new monkey. The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs. To his shock, ALL of the other monkeys beat the Monkey Crap out of him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys, replacing it with a new monkey. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment — with enthusiasm — because he is now part of the “team.”

Then, replace a third original monkey with a new monkey, followed by the fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked. Now, the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs. Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.

Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, not one of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the banana. Why, you ask? Because in their minds, that is the way it has always been!

This, my friends, is how today’s House and Senate operates; and this is why, from time to time:
ALL of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME!

DISCLAIMER: This is meant as no disrespect to monkeys.

((((((((((((((((())))))))))))))))))))))))

There is no evidence that this experiment ever took place. It is, however, a very convincingly written piece, and it is very relevant to the election coming up in two weeks.
