Newt, now you want to take some poor guys livelhood because he belongs to a union. What we need to do is get rid of you and those cronies in congress who got us into this mess. Child labor laws are there for a reason. If you want to see children work, go to Laos, Cambodia, Viet Nam, etc. and see how it works. You are very far away from main stream America. For years you and your cohorts stole what was once the American dream of owning a house buying a new car etc. Now we are worried about paying our heat bill and will I have enough food for the weekfor my family. Don’t blame Obama for this depressed economy we’re in. Blame the ones who have been office the past 30 years. Democrats and republicans alike are responsible for this mess. In 2006 Freddie Mac hired you as a consultant and paid you almost 2 million dollars for 2 years work. And then Freddie Mac goes bankrupt. Nice job Newt! And now your talking about taking some poor janitor’s job. Newt, your such a hypocrite . You and your cohorts stole from Social Security 4.63 trillion dollars to pay for 3 wars and other social programs over the past 30 years. Section 13301 of the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990 made it a violation of federal law to use Social Security revenue for non-Social Security purposes. Why would anybody vote for you is any ones guess. Voting for you is like voting for the same0same0, business as usual.
The intent of the 1983 legislation was to generate large Social Security surpluses for the next 30 years that were supposed to be saved and invested, in order to build up a large reserve in the trust fund that could later be drawn down to pay benefits to the baby boomers. The 1983 payroll tax hike has generated more than $2.5 trillion that is supposed to be in the trust fund. If the trust fund actually held this amount in real assets, full Social Security benefits could be paid until at least 2037 without any changes. Unfortunately, none of the surplus revenue was saved or invested in anything. It was all spent by the government on wars and other government programs without making any provisions for repaying the money.
Prior to 1983, Social Security had operated on a “pay-as-you-go” basis with each generation responsible for paying for the benefits of the generation that preceded them. The 1983 legislation changed the nature of Social Security funding. In addition to paying for the benefits of the preceding generation, as was customary, the baby boomers were also required to pay additional taxes to partially pre-fund their own retirement. The net result is that the baby boomers have paid more into Social Security than any other generation. Yet they are often made scapegoats and blamed for the Social Security funding problem. We are getting a bum rap.
Over the past 25 years, five presidents, and the members of Congress, have participated in the great Social Security scam. All Social Security contributions made by working Americans, except the amount which was needed to pay current retirement benefits, has been funneled into the general fund and used for non-Social Security purposes. Some like to say that the government just “borrowed” the money during the time period when it was not needed to pay benefits. If the money is not repaid in full, with interest, it will have been stolen by the government from working Americans who paid into the fund. Congress must pay their debt to the American workers. They should be held accountable for the $4.63 trillion that they have borrowed. Forgiving this debt is not an option! Section 13301 of the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990 made it a violation of federal law to use Social Security revenue for non-Social Security purposes. As of 2011 4.63 trillion dollars have been stolen from SS. My questions are, why aren’t these politicians behind bars and what recourse do we have to prosecute these scoundrels?? Gus Piliafas
When you add the population of California, Michigan, and Minnesota it comes to about 52 million. That is the equivalent to 52 million abortions performed since 1973. The population of Canada is nearing 35,000,000. This is genocide! in the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG). Article 2 of this convention defines genocide as “any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group. Some people argue about a woman’s right to abort, but what about the unborn? This is a very sensitive issue with pro-lifers such as myself. One day these pro-abortionists will will think back all those times that these little ones in the womb were trying to escape the prodding etc. Millions of the unborn have been gutted and grind into little pieces because of one person’s selfishness. Ask Norma McCorvey, alias “Jane Roe”, how she feels about what she did in 1973. Even though she didn’t go through the abortion process, Norma McCorvey regretted her decision and now is an advocate pro-lifer. But the damage had been done! She has become an outspoken figure in the pro-life movement. Over 52,000,000 abortions have been performed since Roe vs Wade, that’s over 52 million abortions. Shame on the Supreme Court granting abortions! And Shame on those that performed abortions. And shame on all those that decided to have an abortion. YOU MURDERED, GUTTED, GRIND and FLUSHED DOWN THE TOILET 52 million babies! Gus Piliafas
These young people are speaking for the vast majority of Americans who are frustrated by the bankers and brokers who have profited on the backs of hard-working people, “While we battle it out day after day, month after month, the millionaires and billionaires on Wall Street sit by — untouched — and lecture us on the level of our sacrifice.” Gus Piliafas
Bill O’Reilly Broadcaster for FOX news recently admitted on his broadcast that he donates $1,000,000 to charity. That’s good Bill. But my Question is if you have $1,000,000 to donate to charity how much of an income do you gross every year? You donate more in one year than the 99% of us make for our entire lives. Bill, why are you such a hypocrite?! You’re part of that 1% that we find atrocious. You and your cohorts on Fox are the rudest broadcasters in the business. I’ve watched you over the years interrupt, disrespect, bully anyone that thinks differently than you. You’re part of the status quo right wing that I find offensive. Wolf is the best in

Republican presidential contender Herman Cain amplified his criticism Sunday of the growing Occupy Wall Street movement, calling the protesters “jealous’ Americans who “play the victim card” and want to “take somebody else’s” wealth. Herman Cain, you are out of main stream America. Your comments are without merit and your motives are self serving. That is not what these protests are all about. Herman has shown his true colors during these protests. I thought he was different but I was wrong. He’s like other Republicans that can only see their bank accounts. Shame on you Herman Cain! Your statement will have a drastic effect on your campaign. Both Republicans and Democrats are responsible for the decay of the American way of life. Even your 9 9 9 plan will cause lower class income folks on fixed incomes to file for bankruptcy. 9 9 9 favors the rich and wealthy. Most of us can’t afford food now as it is and if you tax food a 9% we’ll go without. If you tax clothing 9% we will be cold in the winter. If you tax heating, cooling at 9%, etc. you might as well throw all of us over a cliff. You lost my vote and perhaps the vote of many other Americans. And please, don’t play the race card. You sound more like a racist than Perry. Keep in mind, Blacks and Whites were not born yesterday. Race is not an issue, so don’t make it one!!
I’m reminded by our Congress that Social Security is an entitlement. I am insulted by their cold, callous remarks. Our government leaders have destroyed the hopes of future generations of retiring. Our government took (what was once a solvent Social Security system) to pay for other programs. They borrowed 3 trillion dollars from our social security during the past 30 years. And they never paid any of it back. They robbed us blind. We the people should put these corrupt individuals on trial. Oh, I forgot, they are our leaders, and are above reproach. They can do as they please without repercussions. Our elected officials tell us that SS are entitlements. Entitlement” refers to a notion or belief that one (or oneself) is deserving of some particular reward or benefit. So after a lifetime of putting money into SS you call it entitlement. Do you think we were born yesterday! You should be ashamed of yourselves. You call yourselves leaders. We, the American people are ashamed of you! You have become a modern day mafia, self serving, and corrupt. You are more interested in pleasing your wealthy constituents than doing what is right.
