Given that the economic report cited by a letter writer (“More on priorities” Roundup Jan. 31) claiming that the top 95 percent of all profits over the last decade went to the top 1 percent of Americans, came from a so-called economist at the bastion of far-left wing economics and politics, the University of California at Berkley, one has to consider the source. Besides, the report did not claim “over the last decade”; it claimed the period of 2009-2012: Three years.
The letter writer might want to consider the fact that the Tea Party, the members of which he claims are collecting all that Social Security, Medicare and veterans’ benefits, weren’t around in 1935 when FDR, a Democrat, signed socialist security into existence in violation of the U.S. Constitution, creating a socialist Ponzi con game that robs young Peter to pay retiring Paul.
The Tea Party wasn’t around in 1965 when Lyndon B. Johnson, a Democrat, signed Medicare into existence in violation of the U.S. Constitution, creating yet another socialist Ponzi con game robbing the youthful taxpayer of his hard-earned wages to pay for the medical needs of an aging Paul, which he can’t pay for himself because of all the Democratic robbery he suffered throughout his career.
Sure Tea Party members collect Social Security, Medicare and veterans’ benefits: We want our money back!
As Margaret Thatcher said, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
Social Security and Medicare are going broke because the Democrats are running out of our hard-earned money, so what to do?
Why, simple! Another Democrat con man comes along and rams through another socialist Ponzi con game we know colloquially as “Obamacare” after its chief huckster, though he didn’t write it, doesn’t know what’s in it, lies about it every time he opens his mouth, and still expects the American people to fawn over him like some kind of Messiah.
Because of this socialist con game monstrosity that Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, said would have to be passed before we could read it, 6 million people have lost their health care, the insurance industry is in a shambles, younger people are bright enough to not go near it, 16,000 new IRS agents have been hired to ram it down our throats at the point of a gun, and this letter writer claims that the Tea Party is off in some alternate universe?
I don’t think so.
