GWBUSHWHACKED by YOUR GOVERNMENT
my 2004 website
Can you imagine working at the following company? It has a little over 500 employees
with the following statistics:
*29 have been accused of spousal abuse
*7 have been arrested for fraud
*19 have been accused of writing bad checks
*117 have bankrupted at least two businesses
*3 have been arrested for assault
*71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
*14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
*8 have been arrested for shoplifting
*21 are current defendants in lawsuits
*In 1998 alone, 84 were stopped for drunk driving
Can you guess which organization this is?
It's the 535 members of your United States Congress. The same group that perpetually
cranks out hundreds upon hundreds of new laws designed to keep the rest of us in line.
Politicians have the best of all worlds:
Rub elbows with the rich and famous
People (lobbyists, special interest groups, etc.) throwing big $ and perks to them
Very nice compensation (6 figures + benefits "out the kazoo")
All the sex you ever could want - either consensual or "just f*** the public"
And if you don't like the laws, just go out and make some of your own
Look at the following for retirement benefits - a short stint as a senator & set for
Perhaps we were asking the wrong questions in this past election
year. Our Senators/Congressmen do not pay into Social Security, and, therefore they do not
collect from it. Social Security benefits were not suitable for them.
They felt they should have a special plan. Many years ago they voted in their benefit
In more recent years, no congress person has felt the need to change it. After all, it is
a great plan.
For all practical purposes, their plan works like this: When they retire no matter how
long they have been in office, they continue to draw their same pay until they die, except
it may be increased from time to time by the cost-of-living adjustments.
For example, former Senator Bill Bradley (New Jersey) and his wife may be expected to draw
$7,900,000.00 over an average life span, with Mrs. Bradley drawing $275,000.00 during the
last year of her life. Their cost for this excellent plan is "0," nada,zilch.
This little perk they voted in for themselves is free to them. You and I pick up the tab
for this plan. Our tax dollars at work!
Social Security, which you and I pay into every payday for our own retirement, with an
equal amount paid in by our employer, we can expect to receive an average of $1,000 per
month. We would have to collect our benefits for 68 years and 1 month to equal the
Imagine for a moment that you could structure a retirement plan so desirable, a retirement
plan that worked so well, that Railroad Employees, Postal Workers, and others who were not
in the plan would clamor to be included. This is how good Social Security could be, if
only one small change was made.
That change would be to jerk the Golden Fleece Retirement Plan out from under the Senators
& Congressmen. Put them into the Social Security plan with the rest of us. Watch how
fast they fix it!
If enough people receive this message maybe a seed will be planted, and maybe good changes
Don't forget, our girl, Hillary Rodham Clinton, now comes under this Congressional
Retirement Plan. Talking about the Clinton's, it's common knowledge that, in order for her
to establish NYS residency, they purchased a million + house in upscale Chappaqua, NY.
Now, they are entitled to Secret Service protection for life. Still makes sense. Here is
where it becomes interesting. A residency had to be built in order to house the Secret
Service agents. The Clinton's now charge the Secret Service rent for the use of said
residence and that rent is just about equal to their mortgage payment, meaning that we,
the taxpayers, are paying the Clinton's mortgage, and it's all perfectly legal.
How many people can YOU send this to?
