I received this forward from a friend with this question:
THINKINGBLUE, Please check this out, and let me know what your opinion is, My son sent this to me, do you think this is true? A friend
I’m MAD AND YOU WILL BE TOO!
Your U.S. House & Senate have voted themselves $4,700 and $5,300 raises.
1.They voted to not give you a S.S. cost of living raise in 2010 and 2011.
2. Your Medicaid premiums will go up $285.60 for the 2-years and you will not get the 3% COLA: $660/yr. Your total 2-yr loss and cost is -$1,600 or -$3,200 for HUSBAND AND WIFE.
3. Over 2-yrsThe House & Senate each get $10,000 raises
4. Do you feel SCREWED?
5. WILL your cost of drugs – doctor fees – local taxes – food, etc., increase? You better believe they will!
WILL THEIRS…NO WAY . They have a raise and better benefits. Why care about you? You never did anything about it in the past.
You’re obviously too stupid or don’t care
No offense; just making a point!
Do you really think that Nancy, Harry, Chris, Charlie, Barnie, et al, care about you?
SEND THE MESSAGE– You’re FIRED
IN 2010 YOU WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO GET RID OF THE SITTING CONGRESS AND
Up to 1/3 OF THE SENATE, AND 100% OF THE HOUSE .
MAKE SURE YOU’RE STILL MAD IN NOVEMBER 2010 AND TELL THEIR REPLACEMENTS NOT TO SCREW UP.
It is ok to forward this to your sphere of influence if you are finally tired of the abuse.
Maybe it’s time for the…….. Amendment 28
(CLICK HERE FOR THE TRUTH – thinkingblue)
“Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States .”
Let’s get this passed around, folks – these people in Washington have brought this upon themselves!!! It’s time for retribution. Let’s take back America .
If you don’t forward this to all your friends you’re just part of the problem of national apathy.
JUST DO IT!
Here is what I wrote back:
OMG FRIEND, I can’t believe your son sent this to you… HE MUST BE EITHER NOT VERY WELL INFORMED OR A REPUBLICAN… This propaganda comes out every election time… IT MAKES ME SICK!
First of all, who are they telling you to vote out? DEMOCRATS THAT’S WHO…! Like it was the Dems that got us into this pile of SHIT in the first place… AND THEN THEY GOT THE BALLS TO TELL YOU TO VOTE THE REPUBLICANS BACK INTO THE MAJORITY… Look at the crap we are still getting from a republican majority… CORPORATIONS ARE NOW DEEMED PEOPLE ACCORDING TO THE REPUBLICAN SUPREME COURT JUDGES, THE ONES BUSH APPOINTED TO THE COURT… The last couple of days I was busy blogging about this DISGUSTING NEWS FROM THE SUPREMOS…
Please don’t let these shysters pull the wool over your eyes as they have done to so many (particularly, LOW INFORMATIONAL TYPE PEOPLE) … Their propaganda stinks and anyone with some common sense should see right through it… We live in a land of dopey people and it’s a CRYING shame, especially in these days of technology where anyone can do a google search if they can spend a little cash on a used computer (or take an old fashion walk to the library).
Below I researched it and found some information from this site:
which states it is…
Please send the link, back to your son so he can OPEN HIS EYES TO THE LYING BULLSHIT THE REPUBLICANS THROW OUR WAY!!!
Your Friend thinkingblue
PS: In all the days of computing I HAVE YET, TO GET ONE PIECE OF PROPAGANDA (BS) FORWARD, FROM DEMOCRATS…….. Hmmmmm, I wonder why that is? Could it be because the GRAND OLD PARTIERS are the meanest most hateful lot this side of HOGWASH MOUNTAIN! THEY HAVE NO SHAME! WINNING AND WINNING IS ALL THEY CARE ABOUT! NO MATTER WHO GETS HURT!
