The following is one of those e-mail forwards that are worth sharing. This one comes from my favorite Aunt Gwen.

Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming calls senior citizens the
Greediest Generation as he compared “Social Security ” to a Milk Cow
with 310 million teats.
Here’s a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana … I think
those Montana women have a lot of spunk. She is a little ticked off
and she also tells it like it is! (A “little” tickedoff???)
“Hey Alan, let’s get a few things straight!!!!!
1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for
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 losers in return for votes, thus
bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme
that would make Bernie Madoff proud.
4. Recently, just like Lucy & 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 age 65 to age, 67. NOW, you and your
“shill commission” are 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 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 our money from Medicare to pay
6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes
our entire lives, and now you propose to
increase our taxes 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 to pay off
To add insult to injury, you label us “greedy” for calling .attention”
to your incompetence. Well, Captain Bumblehead, I have a few questions
1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during
your pathetic 50-year political career?
2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and
how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the
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 Bumblehead, and your political co-conspirators
called Congress who are the “greedy” ones. It is you and your fellow
nutcase thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American
dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes
and your job and retirement security at our expense, you lunk-headed,
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. And you can take that to the
bank, you miserable person. NO, I did not stutter.
P.S. And stop calling Social Security benefits “entitlements”. WHAT AN
I have been paying in to the SS system for 45 years t’s my
money-give it back to me the way the system was designed and stop
patting yourself on the back like you are being
generous by doling out
these monthly checks!
