Enough of Right Wing BS

In case some readers may have missed this, here is a slightly modified version of an open letter written by an unnamed man from Montana to Alan Simpson, former Republican senator from Wyoming.  In August 2010 Simpson, an Anglican/Episcopalian, proved the caliber of his understanding of important and proven government programs by comparing Social Security to “a milk cow with 310 teats (well, he said tits).  And his assessment of those who earned that security through Social Security withholding from their earnings he actually called “the greediest generation”!  That knucklehead deserved more than this harsh tongue lashing, but the Montana man speaks volumes of truth—a commodity that is in much disfavor with the religious right dominated Republican/tea party.  Here is the letter.

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 and 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 65 to 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 (scheming) 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 (on the poor) 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 money to pay off your debt.

To add insult to injury, you label us greedy for calling bulls**t on your incompetence.  Well, Captain Bulls**t, I have a few questions for you.

1)  How much money have you earned from your pathetic 50-year political career?

2)  At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you (still) 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 Bulls**t, and your political co-conspiritors who are the (true) “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. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Since this was written the open criminality against American citizens by right wing politicians has only gotten worse.  Washington DC has always been a lure for those looking to make some easy money and luxuriate in privilege.  Full scale war on democratic principles didn’t really get rolling  full swing until the Relgious Right managed to gain full control of the Republican Party in 1996.
