Nobody’s Email: How to Fix Congress

Nobody Got Email

(Do you dream of a government that works? Do you also dream that you had a one night stand with Brittany Spears and she fell madly in love with you and gave you all her money? Can we all go to sleep and wake up in 1980 again and start over?Can I go back in time and marry John Lennon?)

Nobody always likes it when I get emails from my liberal friends, because it’s a good sign that they are also fed up with the power and the glory. Trouble is: they think the Republicans are the problems of Congress, not the democrats. Here’s an email, that claims that Warren Buffet made this up and sent it around the internet. I doubt it serioulsy, (some girl named Rosie did it) but it does have very good suggestions.  The chances of any Congrass voting themselves out of big pensions, raises, term limits, health care, and cushy travel expenses are about the same as you or I winning the lotto, or Michael Moore marrying Joe Biden.

But we can dream can’t we?

Warren Buffet in a recent interview with MSNBC suggested these things. “I could end the deficit in five minutes……

“I could end the deficit in 5 minutes. 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 years-olds) took only 3  months and 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 took one year or less to become  the law of the land, all because of public pressure.

Congressional Reform Act of 2012

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 Americans do.
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 people.
7.  All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective by 6/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women. 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 terms then go home and back to work.
This is how you fix Congress!

Nobody Gets Email: Obama’s Vast Vocabulary

Nobody Gets Email

Tom Hanks has said that Obama has helped the United States image all over the World, and I got this just a minute ago. If you need a good laugh this morning, this will do it. Here is a Dutch commentary on our President that will make you wonder…just how very big that “smartest man who ever occupied the White House” vocabulary really is?

Enjoy!
