No Increase Of The Debt Ceiling

As you can guess, I am totally opposed to increasing the debt ceiling. Of course some of this has been a long time coming. Congress has been using social security money for other things for years which has contributed to the problem.

What then is the solution? I would start with social security. Right now, $106.000,00 is the maximum that can be taxed. The maximum will need to be dropped. It won’t cure the problem, but it will help. Second, we need to go ahead and raise the retirement age to 70 (Hey, I don’t like it, but if I am going to ask others to sacrifice, I need to sacrifice as well.) Next, people who only paid in to SS for 10 years but are getting great pensions, should only receive social security for 10 years, its only fair.

Medicare will need to be worked on as well, it will probably need to have the taxes increased, but more important is to address the increasing cost of healthcare. Obamacare did nothing to address this issue.

Next, get rid of all unconstitutional government expenditures. A good example would be the department of education. Get rid of it, let the states handle it. That is their job. We also need to get the US government out of mass transit. Again, that job belongs to the states, and municipal governments, not to the Feds.

Since to my knowledge, Congress has not declared war against Libya, we need to remove our planes, ships and whatever. There should be a major rethink of the war in Afghanistan. I do not see that we are any closer to capturing bin Laden. Maybe we should take the annual cost of the war in Afghanistan and offer it as a reward for bin Laden’s capture. Shoot, for that kind of money, I might go after him myself. I would say we need to be out of Afghanistan in one year or less. While we are on wars, it looks like the operation in Iraq has been successful, we need to be looking at the exit strategy.

While we are in the pinch, we need to minimize working on infrastructure, but we do need to maintain the Interstate highway system. That truly is a national interest.

I am sure we can make lots of other cuts (say limiting Congressmen’s and Senator’ retirements to Social Security, I am sure they can suffer on that), but I am looking for a job, so I am not as up on everything that I should be.

If you agree with me, write both your senators and your congressman. You have my permission to cut and paste. But they need to know, we cannot increase the debt ceiling.

(for those of you wondering where I have been, for Lent, I have been concentrating on more spiritual matters)

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
