Did Warren Buffet Say this?


The following is copied from an E-mail purported to be based on quotes  from Warren Buffet. The truth does not matter as much as the overall theory. If we as people contact all news media, all politicians and all public speakers the effect would be enactment of the following. The deficit is more threatening than any other government  problem. It will put the majority of people into poverty, cause riots through out the country, and leave us destitute.
Subject: The W. Buffet Rule:

Salary of retired US Presidents .. . . . . . . . . .. . $180,000 FOR LIFE
Salary of House/Senate members .. . . . . . . . $174,000 FOR LIFE This is stupid
Salary of Speaker of the House .. . . . . . . . . . $223,500 FOR LIFE This is really stupid
Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders . . . . . . . . $193,400 FOR LIFE Ditto last line
Average Salary of a teacher . . .. . . . . . . . . . .. .. $40,065
Average Salary of a deployed Soldier . . . . . .. . $38,000
I think we found where the cuts should be made! If you agree pass it on, I just did.

Warren Buffet, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling:
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!
"I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC. "You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971 - before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc.

Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took one (1) year or less to become the law of the land - all because of public pressure.

Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.

Congressional Reform Act of 2014:

1. No Tenure / No Pension.A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office.

2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all (many) Americans do.

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people. 

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 12/1/14 . The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.

Congress made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive the message. Don't you think it's time?"

Memory?



Test your memories. Do you remember the year’s when the Phillies won the World Series, when Harry Kalas passed away, the terrorists killed Americans in Benghazi, Brian Terry was murdered with guns from fast and furious? When were we promised that the ACA would save us monies?  When did this President say; “- I’m pledging to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term. “
The emirates as well other oil producing nations of the world are suspected of financing support of terror groups. Here in the United States we developed sources of crude oil. Our President and Senate Leader refuse the approval of the pipe line that would open our markets to the world. Inaction allows the economies of the Mid-east as well as Russia’s to flourish. Obama will not restrain the non-elected EPA from driving up our home energy costs. The EPA is fostering unemployment in coal mining areas. Our President dithers about what to do concerning the threats of the savage hoards released in Syria, and Iraq.
The grid lock in our nation continues to exist from our President and Senate not allowing votes to resolve our problems. Every citizen of New Jersey and the United States must understand, the problems not resolved, existed and date un-resolved from the advent of Barack Obama and Harry Reid. A strong vote clearing of Congress, will force our president to remember his quotes. Force Obama to fix the things he has promised since 2008, the year the Phillies won the World Series.

Al Gore, Where Are you?

  • Seven years after former US Vice-President Al Gore's warning, Arctic ice cap has expanded for second year in row
  • An area twice the size of Alaska - America's biggest state - was open water two years ago and is now covered in ice
  • These satellite images taken from University of Illinois's Cryosphere project show ice has become more concentrated

Common Core Needs a Cure!Jacks country - I told you so -- and now support from Gov.

This follows the initial review done by several of “PARCC state experts.” The outline the changes, but the most interesting part of the press release is the statement made by their CEO Laura Slover. “High quality assessments go hand-in-hand with high quality instruction based, on high quality standards,” said Laura Slover, the Chief Executive Officer of the PARCC nonprofit. “You cannot have one without the other. The PARCC states see quality assessments as a partof instruction, not a break from instruction.” Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s office, whose executive order to remove Louisiana from PARCC was recently blocked by a district court judge, released a statement of their own responding to this news. “The proponents of Common Core and PARCC continue to insist that tests and standards are not about curriculum, but that’s a ruse. Teachers already know that what is tested at the end of the year is what is taught in classrooms throughout the year. PARCC may not mandate one textbook or one pacing guide, but the CEO of the federally funded PARCC has admitted one thing: PARCC controls instruction and instruction is curriculum,” his office stated.

In Obama's words , my letter to Courier

Dear Editor,
Per Obama: - “The United States of America will continue to do what we must do to protect our people. We will be vigilant and we will be relentless. When people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what's necessary to see that justice is done. And we act against ISIL, standing alongside others.
The people of Iraq, who with our support are taking the fight to ISIL, must continue coming together to expel these terrorists from their communities. The people of Syria, whose story Jim Foley told, do not deserve to live under the shadow of a tyrant or terrorists. They have our support in their pursuit of a future rooted in dignity.
From governments and peoples across the Middle East there has to be a common effort to extract this cancer, so that it does not spread. There has to be a clear rejection of these kind of nihilistic ideologies. One thing we can all agree on is that a group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century.”
Does anyone need more reason to vote out the Senators, and Representatives that support this man? FORE!

Think about IT!



Questions to conservative thinkers.
Has our Federal government become a Mega Corporation? Look at our highways. They started as States building roads to open new lands and connect existing municipalities. The obvious benefits were business, immigration from other states, as well as improved transportation. The automobile came and the US highway system came with monies supported by the Federal and State fuel taxes. The Interstate system came based on the models of State Turnpikes and lessens of World War II as well as the AUTOBAHN. Today we have states crying for highway dollars; for roads and bridges to maintain as well as new sections to eliminate traffic overloads (best of intentions). I wonder if all of the reconstructions cause increased problems. 
After this example look at National Education Policy, Obama Care and the shortened work hours, and Communication radio television telephone with allof the taxes or fees to provide other functions -maybe we all should receive OBAMA PHONES, EPA, and Power Industry Regulation (RGGI), Mortgages. Residential electric energy has jumped about 25 %.
What is next the internet?
All sources of taxation. What should be the domain of the Federal or State controls, or their function?
