I awoke this morning with a bounce in my step and a smile on my face. Then......... I turned on the news.
Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal misspoke* about his Vietnam service. I cannot print the epitaphs that spewed from my mouth. I am truly embarrassed at my language. Having said that and ask for forgiveness as far as I am concerned this man should immediately be sanction by the Democrat Party and forced to withdraw as a candidate. He should immediately resign the position of Attorney General of Connecticut as that position above all is a position where truth and honesty are foremost!
To desecrate the honor and memories of the brave men and women who fought and died in Vietnam is unconscionable and vile. To excuse this shameless effort of trying to align himself with our honored military warriors this man has shown he has no morals or character. He has tarnish what ever reputation he may have had in the Marine Corp Reserves. Like John Murtha should have been and unfortunately was not, he should be striped of his rank, any benefits and be discharged dishonorably. Never again be allowed to use his name or that of the Honored Marine Corp in the same sentence. Like the old Pharaoh in The Ten Commandments when Moses was sent into the desert, his name should be stricken from all rolls and never mentioned again! He is a slug and lower than fish feces, IMHO.

Connecticut wake up!!!
WASHINGTON — Social Security faces a $5.3 trillion shortfall.........over the next 75 years.
Well gee whiz how could that happen? Congress has been spending money that wasn't there for years. They have added more bells and bangles to Social Security since it's inception than Jimmy Carter has peanuts! But that OK. The Social Security trust funds have built a $2.5 trillion surplus over the past 25 years. But the federal government has borrowed that money over the years to spend on other programs. The government must now start borrowing money from public debt markets — adding to annual budget deficits — to repay Social Security. Can you say Obama Care.
According to Sen. Herb Kohl, chairman of the committee, said small "tweaks" are all that is needed to bolster Social Security's finances for future generations of retirees. These simple minded morons have been tweaking it for years, just to get more votes. What are those tweaks Senator Kohl is talking about?
Reduced annual cost-of-living increases 1 percentage point each year. Social Security recipients get annual increases based on inflation.(Little hint, no inflation, no increase, year 2010 no inflation, no increase)
Taxing all wages, not just those below $106,800, (Little hint #2 TAX INCREASE!)
Gradually increased the age when retirees qualify for full benefits from 67 to 68 (Morbid but, more of us will die and less will have to be paid out)
I have a novel idea. Why not quit spending money you don't have. Why not go back to the original idea of Social Security and CUT OUT THE HORSE MANURE!
Here is Question 4 direct from the Social Security Online web site;
Q4: Is it true that Social Security was originally just a retirement program?
A: Yes. Under the 1935 law, what we now think of as Social Security only paid retirement benefits to the primary worker. A 1939 change in the law added survivors benefits and benefits for the retiree's spouse and children. In 1956 disability benefits were added.
Let's just try to go back to the original idea.

I have one other little tidbit of info you all have heard by now BUT.......Can you believe the Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder and the Director of Homeland Security and former Governor of Arizona have in recent days admitted they have NOT read the Arizona Immigration Law. Both are on record of demeaning it. How sorry is that. What a sad, sad state of affairs.
