THIS SENIOR CITIZEN NAILED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alan Simpson, Democrat Senator from Wyoming, Co-Chair of Obama's deficit commission, 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 a unknown fellow in Montana. He is a little ticked off! But he 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 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 zero ambition losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would have made Bernie Madoff proud.

4. Recently, just like Lucy & 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 is 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 morons propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because you idiots mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal 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 incompetent bastards 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" on 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?

It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the "greedy" ones. It is you and your fellow nutcases who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes. That's right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.

And you can take that to the bank, you miserable political moron. If you like the way things are in America, delete this. If you agree with what a fellow Montana citizen says, PASS IT ON!!!!

I finally figured out why I'm fat!

The shampoo I use in the shower that runs down my body says "For extra volume and body".

I'm going to start using "Dawn" dish soap. It says " Dissolves fat that is otherwise difficult to remove".

Oil in the Bakken Formation?

Here's an astonishing read. Important and verifiable information:

About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on oil and one of the Forbes Bros. was the guest. The host said to Forbes, "I am going to ask you a direct question and I would like a direct answer; how much oil does the U.S. have in the ground?" Forbes did not miss a beat, he said, "more than all the Middle East put together." Please read below.

The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since 1995) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota, western South Dakota, and extreme eastern Montana ..... check THIS out:
The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska 's Prudhoe Bay , and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.

"When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.." says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's financial analyst.

"This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years," reportsThe Pittsburgh Post Gazette. It's a formation known as the Williston Basin, but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.' It stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada. For years, U. S. oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's massive reserves..... and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!

That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years straight. And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should - because it's from 2006!

U. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World
Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006

Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world. It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted. With this motherload of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling?

They reported this stunning news: We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth. Here are the official estimates:

- 8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia
- 18-times as much oil as Iraq
- 21-times as much oil as Kuwait
- 22-times as much oil as Iran
- 500-times as much oil as Yemen
- and it's all right here in the Western United States .

HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this? Because the environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group of people dictate our lives and our economy.....WHY?

James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post.

Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find? Think again! It's all about the competitive marketplace, - it has to be. Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists?

Got your attention yet? Now, while you're thinking about it, do this:

Pass this along. If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the next time you complain about gas prices - by doing NOTHING, you forfeit your right to complain. Why haven't we done something about the sugar waste in all our rivers and the plastic factories and the auto industry that really has done very little again big corporation power........
Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you sent this to every one in your address book.

By the way...this is all true. Check it out at the link below!

GOOGLE it, or follow this link. It will blow your mind.

Usama Bin Laden - RIP

(well, maybe not so much RIP)

I never rejoice in the death of another person, but Bin Laden sure made it hard to not.


Let's be clear on this:

OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden. An American soldier, who Obama just a few weeks ago was debating on whether or not to PAY, did. Obama just happened to be the one in office when our soldiers finally found OBL and took him out. This is NOT an Obama victory, but an…


AMERICAN victory!!
If Congress imposed a 100 percent tax, taking all earnings above $250,000... it would yield the princely sum of $1.4 trillion.

That would keep the government running for 141 days.

There are not enough rich people to come anywhere close to satisfying Congress' voracious spending appetite.

They're going to have to go after the non-rich."

Why Did JESUS Fold the Napkin?
Do you know why? This is just beautiful.



Why Did Jesus Fold the Napkin?


This is one I can honestly say I have never seen circulating in the e-mails so; I'll start it
.. If it touches you, you might want to forward it.

Why did Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His resurrection? I never noticed this....

The Gospel of John (20:7) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over the face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes.

The Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly folded, and was placed at the head of that stony coffin.

Early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.

She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, 'They have taken the Lord's body out of the tomb, and I don't know where they have put him!'

Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb to see. The other disciple out ran Peter and got there first. He stopped and looked in and saw the linen cloth lying there, but he didn't go in.

Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus' head was folded up and lying to the side.


Was that important? Absolutely!
Is it really significant? Yes!


In order to understand the significance of the folded napkin, you have to understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day.

The folded napkin had to do with the Master and Servant, and every
Jewish boy knew this tradition.

When the servant set the dinner table for the master, he made sure that it was exactly the way the master wanted it.

The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out of sight, until the master had finished eating, and the servant would not dare touch that table, until the master was finished..

Now if the master were done eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his fingers, his mouth, and clean his beard, and would wad up that napkin and toss it onto the table.

The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days, the wadded napkin meant, "I'm finished.."

But if the master got up from the table, and folded his napkin, and laid it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table, because..........

The folded napkin meant,

"I'm coming back!


AND SO HE SHALL………….

The Truth About ANWR

(Disclaimer: the following came to me in email. I have not changed anything except "style" - font, size of font, etc. Rather than doing my usual of "italics" when I post something not original to me, I chose to announce in this disclaimer changes and that the authorship is not mine)

The Dalling family spent almost 6 years in Alaska. In my travels as an electrical contractor working out of Fairbanks, I can attest that this is factual information so I am passing this on, DD

THINK ABOUT THIS EVERY TIME YOU FILL UP YOUR CAR


My daughter and son-in-law were in L.A. last week from their home in Anchorage.
He is a foreman in the oil fields at AMWR. He has to fly his own plane to get to the job where he spends months at a time in the most God forsaken place this side of Siberia . He confirmed everything that is in this story, and brought dozens of pictures for proof.

Our environmentalist friends have forced gas prices up to an impossible rate, forcing us to buy oil from our enemies, for whatever reason that simply isn't true. There is enough oil in AMWR to supply the US at our present rate of usage for more than 200 years.

The space that AMWR occupies in Alaska is equivalent to a postage stamp in the Mojave Desert. If you won't mind paying $5.00 a gallon in the very near future try to make sense of the following:

Something you should know: Oil!!

A lot of "STUFF" is about oil.

From relatives in Alaska . g.
Now that gasoline is $3.50 and climbing...we can help ourselves....


This is the best presentation on ANWR I have seen.

I would like to add a little more information. A new pipeline across Alaska isn't required since the location for drilling in ANWR is about 160 miles from the North Slope Prudhoe Bay pipeline where it would be connected.

I did not know this. Second the wildlife love the pipeline since it is heated and provides a shelter during the worst times during the winter. Maybe another question should be asked.

FIRST do you know what ANWR is?

ANSWER: Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Now A comparison

cid:1.1532060507@web180602.mail.sp1.yahoo.com

And some perspective?

cid:2..1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1.yahoo.com

NOTE WHERE THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT AREA IS?

(it's in the "ANWR Coastal Plain")

cid:3.1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1.yahoo.com

THIS IS WHAT THE DEMOCRATS, LIBERALS AND "GREENS" SHOW YOUWHEN THEY TALK ABOUT ANWR

and they are right these ARE photographs of ANWR

cid:4.1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1.yahoo.com

cid:5.1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1.yahoo.com

cid:6.1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1.yahoo.com

ISN'T ANWR BEAUTIFUL? WHY SHOULD WE DRILL HERE (AND DESTROY) THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE?

WELL THAT'S NOT EXACTLY THE TRUTH

Do you remember the map?

The map showed that the proposed drilling area is in the ANWR Coastal Plain Do those photographs look like a coastal plain to you?

WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?

THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE

THAT IS NOT WHERE THEY ARE WANTING TO DRILL!

THIS IS WHAT THE PROPOSED EXPLORATION AREA ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IN THE WINTER

cid:7.1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1.yahoo.com

AND THIS IS WHAT IT ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IN THE SUMMER

cid:8.1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1.yahoo.comcid:9.1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1..yahoo.com

cid:10.1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1..yahoo.com

HERE ARE A COUPLE SCREEN SHOTS FROM GOOGLE EARTH

cid:11.1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1.yahoo.com

AS YOU CAN SEE, THE AREA WHERE THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT DRILLING IS A BARREN WASTELAND. OH AND THEY SAY THAT THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE EFFECT ON THE LOCAL WILDLIFE?

HERE IS A PHOTO (SHOT DURING THE SUMMER) OF THE "DEPLETED WILDLIFE" SITUATION CREATED BY DRILLING AROUND PRUDHOE BAY *

DON'T YOU THINK THAT THE CARIBOU REALLY HATE THAT DRILLING?

cid:12.1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1.yahoo.com

HERE'S THAT SAME SPOT DURING THE WINTER.

cid:13.1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1.yahoo.com

HEY, THIS BEAR SEEMS TO REALLY HATE THE PIPELINE NEAR PRUDHOE BAY *

cid:14.1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1.yahoo.com

*The Prudhoe bay area accounts for 17% of U.S. Domestic oil production

NOW, WHY DO YOU THINK THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE LYING ABOUT ANWR?

REMEMBER WHEN AL GORE SAID THAT THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD WORK TO ARTIFICIALLY RAISE GAS PRICES TO $5.00 A GALLON?

WELL AL GORE AND HIS FELLOW DEMOCRATS HAVE ALMOST REACHED THEIR GOAL!

NOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN LYING, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

cid:15.1532060508@web180602.mail.sp1.yahoo.com

YOU CAN START BY FORWARDING THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW SO THAT THEY WILL KNOW THE TRUTH.
