Just in case you all have forgotten. We haven’t.
“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
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
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
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
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void
effective 12/1/12. 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
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

Facts About Mitt Romney We Will Not Hear About From The News Media
> · After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar, but never worked as an attorney.
> · As a venture-capitalist, Romney’s first major business deal involved investing in a start-up office supply company with one store in Massachusetts that sold office supplies. That company, called Staples, now has over 2,000 stores and employs over 90,000 people.
> · Romney or his company Bain Capital (using what became known as the “Bain Way”) would go on to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again, with companies like Domino’s, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot Supply, and many others.
> Got your calculators handy? Let’s recap.
> · Volunteer campaign worker for his dad’s gubernatorial campaign 1 year.
> · Unpaid intern in Governor’s office 8 years.
> · Mormon missionary in Paris 2 years.
> · Unpaid bishop and state president for his church 10 years.
> · No salary as president of the Olympics 3 years.
> · No salary as MA governor 4 years.
> · That’s a grand total of 28 years of unpaid service to his country, his community and his church. Why? Because that’s the kind of man Mitt Romney is.
> · And in 2011 Mitt Romney gave over $4 million to charity, almost 19% of his income….Obama gave 1%
> · Joe Biden gave a pathetic $300 or .0013%
> · Romney may not be the best representative the Republicans could have selected. But at least I know what religion he is, and that he won’t desecrate the flag, bow down to foreign powers, or squander my money on vacations. I know he has the ability to turn this financial debacle that the “Spending President” has gotten us into. We didn’t know that when Obama said he’d give us change, he meant nickels and dimes, and he would get the big bucks. We won’t like all the things necessary to recover from this debt, but someone with Romney’s background can do it.
> · But, on the minus side, He never was a “Community Organizer”, never took drugs or smoked pot. Never got drunk. Did not associate with communists or terrorists. Nor did he attend a church whose pastor called for God to damn the US .
> Do Us all a favor. Please send this to others who may be ill informed.
Emails from my Grandma was a segment I started in response to Montana’s U.S. District Chief Judge Richard Cebull’s racist email. At that time, on Twitter, I simply stated that, ” I receive an Email like that, daily, from my Grandma.” People didn’t believe me. So I posted one, and this all began. These emails are 100% real and from MY grandma, not random Grandma’s. My Grandma is a nice, god fearing, Catholic woman who lives in Nebraska. She is my love, and I am eternally grateful for her. Each email I post, I received THAT exact day. She is a tiny example of the madness and misinformation going on in this country. I post these emails not to make fun of my grandma, but to make fun of the misinformation. It’s to highlight that these emails are started by normal and rational people, who over time, have been led to believe some crazy things. So while we may be laughing at her, it’s at no fault of her own. I love you Grandma!
OBAMA STOPS SOLDIER FROM SPEAKING
Something you’ll want to be aware of: Sent by Retired
Vice Admiral Bob Scarborough, of Arlington , VA.
“I wanted to give you all some disturbing information on
our wonderful president. I work with the Catch-A-Dream Foundation, which
provides hunting and fishing trips to children with life-threatening
illnesses. This past weekend we had our annual banquet/fundraiser event in
Starkville . As a part of our program, we had scheduled Sgt. 1st Class Greg
Stube to come; he’s a highly decorated U.S. Army Green Beret and
inspirational speaker who was severely injured while deployed overseas and
didn’t have much of a chance for survival. Greg is stationed at Ft. Bragg ,
NC and received permission from his commanding officer to come speak at our
Everything was on go until Obama made a policy that NO U.S.
SERVICEMAN CAN SPEAK AT ANY FAITH-BASED PUBLIC EVENTS ANYMORE.
Needless to say, Greg had to cancel his speaking event
with us. Didn’t know if anyone else was aware of this new policy. You’re
just starting to see the Obamanation. This is just how the Nazis did it in
the 1930’s — slowly, one step at a time.
This should be forwarded to everyone regardless of party
affiliation! We have lost 50% of our freedom of speech in the last 2 years.
The news media is not allowed to print anything negative
about this evil Obama.
ARE YOU STILL GOING TO REELECT HIM???????????
