Nevada Senator Dean Heller Does NOT support Net Neutrality

Kiss your job goodbye!

Dean Heller Net Neutrality 1

All The While McConnell Laughed At Them

Bleeding Flag on Fire

One of the reasons I worked so hard for Obama, for over 15 months, knocked on doors, registered voters, was part of the Human Wall at Cashman Field, arranged events, became a Nevada State Delegate, was because of his Blueprint for Change.

 

One of the things in that little ten page booklet, was his PROMISED support for SINGLE-PAYER healthcare, among other things. That was the most important thing to me, because I have two very expensive, pre-existing conditions and I’d already been without health insurance for 3 years.

 

After Obama was elected, when OFA called, I was there, every time they called, I showed up. When it came time for the Healthcare Debates, before Biden said it was a ‘BIG FUCKING DEAL’, OFA called and asked me to bring people to support Healthcare reform. So I did and when I showed up with my H.R. 676 sign, for all the world to see, I was told that OFA was not supporting that bill and that as a representative of OFA Nevada, I wasn’t allowed to use my sign. I was outraged and yet I stayed, because there was the promise that this Healthcare bill, was the road to Single Payer.

 

I watched C-SPAN while the House Debated 9 different Health Care bills. H.R. 676 was among them, until Mitch McConnell had the Representatives for H.R. 676, removed from the building, by Congressional Security. All the while McConnell laughed at them, as they were being dragged from the House Floor.

 

I read all the Healthcare bills, including all 3000 plus pages of the Healthcare bill that we use today, because I had to do a live radio broadcast, about which bill would be the best. H.R. 676 was/is the best, BAR NONE.

 

I am tired of broken promises and center right compromises. I will no longer believe or listen to, ANY corporate supported (bought and paid for) politicians AT ALL. There is no kinder, gentler, softer way to say this … there is no time left, to let these Corporate WHORES dilly dally around with our lives!

 

 

Not Germane To The Conversation

Clean Up After Your God

I’ve heard it said and I have read, certain entities and/or ideologies, are unimpeachable, not political, not germane to the conversation.

Let me make my opinion of the observations I have had, perfectly clear.

I have noticed, ever since President Obama declared his preference for Arugula lettuce over any other kind, EVERYTHING is political. From politically correct speech to the color you wear to support your cause, even the shape of the ribbon and that’s just in the U.S.A.

Until the Chinese government stops persecuting the Dalai Lama and his followers, for their belief system, religion is political. Until Evangelical Christians stop trying to declare the United States of America, a Christian based nation and stop trying to rewrite the U.S. Constitution, religion is political. Until all countries stop using their officials’ particular brand of Centrism, to decide the clothes people wear, the caste they belong in, if a human being is allowed to read, write and eat, religion is political. Until Israel stops persecuting the Palestinians and vice versa, while still being separate branches of the same tree, religion is political. Until there are no more ‘Religious Police’ in the world, no more female genital mutilation, no more democratically elected Popes, land grabs, nation based religious coercion, gender-biased and color based, exaction and extortion of humanity, religion is political.

I have news for EVERYONE.

IF there is a Deity, we are ALL chosen or NONE OF US ARE.

Collected Social Security – guest post by Anonymous

Social Security 99

KEEP PASSING THIS AROUND UNTIL
EVERY ONE HAS HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO READ IT…
THIS IS SURE SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!!!!

THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH THE
GOVERNMENT’S CALCULATION OF AVAILABLE SOCIAL SECURITY IS THEY FORGOT
TO FIGURE IN THE PEOPLE WHO DIED BEFORE THEY EVER COLLECTED A SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK!!!

WHERE DID THAT MONEY GO?

Remember, not only did you and I contribute to Social Security but your employer did, too. It totaled 15% of your income before taxes.

If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that’s close to$220,500.
Read that again.

Did you see where the Government paid in one single penny?

We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a Government bank to insure you and me that we would have a retirement check from the money we put in, not the Government.

Now they are calling the money we put in an entitlement when we reach the age to take it back.

If you calculate the future invested value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer’s contribution) at a simple 5% interest (less than what the Government pays on the money that it borrows).

After 49 years of working you’d have$892,919.98.

If you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you’re 95 if you retire at age 65) and that’s with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit!

If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you’d have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.

THE FOLKS IN WASHINGTON HAVE PULLED OFF A BIGGER PONZI SCHEME THAN BERNIE MADOFF EVER DID.

Entitlement my foot; I paid cash for my social security insurance!

Just because they borrowed the money for other government spending, doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!!

Remember the benefits for members of Congress?

+ free healthcare,
+ outrageous retirement packages,
+ 67 paid holidays,
+ three weeks paid vacation,
+ unlimited paid sick days.

Now that’s welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement payments entitlements?

They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives, and now, when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money.

Why did the government borrow from it in the first place? It was supposed to be in a locked box, not part of the general fund.

Sad isn’t it?

Amon Bundy Domestic Terrorist

Bundy 1

Brought to you by your friends in Pahrump, NV.

I came across this sign today, on my way to one of my favorite local haunts, Building 160. Affectionately known as “Rosie’s” to the residents, of which I am one.

So I turned to my husband to ask what this was all about … he tells me that Ammon Bundy is currently being housed in the C.C.A. of Southern Nevada Prison. I decided to take a picture on the way back from Rosie’s and I made sure I got the “WTF in the photo too, because you just can’t make this stuff up.

I turned to my husband and said “the sign they posted seems appropriate. He is after all, a Domestic Terrorist.”
