I like the part about "all sitting members of Congress are ineligible
for re-election". We'd have a new congress every election cycle!
The Buffet Rule.
We must support this...pass it on and lets see if these idiots
understand what people pressure is all about.
Salary of retired US Presidents . . . . . . . . . . . . $180,000 FOR
Salary of House/Senate members . . . . . . . . $174,000 FOR LIFE this is
Salary of Speaker of the House . . . . . . . . . . $223,500 FOR LIFE
this is really stupid
Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders . . . . . . . . $193,400 FOR LIFE
Ditto last line
Average Salary of a teacher . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $40,065
Average Salary of a deployed Soldier . . . . . . . $38,000
I think we found where the cuts should be made! If you agree pass it on,
I just did.
Warren Buffet, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best
quotes about the debt ceiling:
"I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC. "You just pass a
law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP,
all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.
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, e-mail, cell phones, etc.
Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took one (1) year or
less to become the law of the land - all because of public pressure.
Warren Buffet is 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 2014
1. No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives
no pay when they're 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
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
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void
effective 12/1/14. The American people did not make this contract with
Congress 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.
Don't you think it's time?
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!
If you agree, pass it on. If not, delete.
You are one of my 20+ - Please keep it going, and thanks!
Or maybe the title should be: "Common Core: Why Do We Expect Those That Caused The Problem To Fix The Problem?"
Or maybe: "Common Core: This Is Why Government Should Stay Out Of The People's Way?"
Or maybe: "Common Core: 2 + 2 = 5?"
Or maybe: "Common Core: Because The Children And Parents Are Ready For Another Step Towards Complete Government Totalitarianism?"
Here is a link to a petition to limit the terms of congressional reps. 3 2's for the house and 2 6's for the senate.
Where is the petition to bring them all up on criminal and treason charges??? What ever happened to impeachments?? If nothing else let them all know how happy you are with them!
Now I know I'm not with everyone else here, not a U.S. Citizen, not even American... I'm not even from planet Earth. But that doesn't matter I still have a stake in all this. If you people should all wake up and throw out the insane Matrix illusion machinery controlling your lives it would be a major loss to me. Harmful in more ways than one.
The obvious financial harm it will do to me is the loss of unlimited bar betting challenges on Zeta Reticuli about the way you people are. I'll have to start buying my own drinks!
"Oh.. but wait.. Zumbol will have to buy his own drinks!" That's probably not enough to dissuade you from leaving The Matrix machinery as it doesn't effect you directly. So I'm going to give you another cost harmful to us both. Something that will effect you directly that you should seriously consider.
You've all heard expressions such as "It's not what you say it's what you do?", "Actions speak louder than words?", "Put your money where your mouth is?" You know.. talking and walking?
Barack Obama, the messiah savior from Krypton himself, is probably the best example of a president we've had to date for saying one thing and doing another. If he is speaking publicly? ...odds are he is lying. That would be a real safe bet.
What I find interesting is that when they are stumping to collect our votes and get elected they know exactly what we the people want. They know exactly what it is we wish to hear and have done. They know!! Yet once elected they do something completely different. Contradictory even.
We and they know what's important to us. But that is NOT important to U.S. So what is important to U.S.?
