For Christian American readers of this blog:

I wish to incite all Christians to rise up and take back the United States of America with all of God's manifold blessings. We want the free allowance of the Bible and prayers allowed again in schools, halls of justice, and all governing bodies. We don't seek a theocracy until Jesus returns to earth because all men are weak and power corrupts the very best of them.
We want to be a kinder and gentler people without slavery or condescension to any.

The world seems to be in a time of discontent among the populace. Christians should not fear. God is Love, shown best through Jesus Christ. God is still in control. All Glory to our Creator and to our God!

A favorite quote from my good friend, Jack Plymale, which I appreciate:

"Wars are planned by old men,in council rooms apart. They plan for greater armament, they map the battle chart, but: where sightless eyes stare out, beyond life's vanished joys, I've noticed,somehow, all the dead and mamed are hardly more than boys(Grantland Rice per our mutual friend, Sarah Rapp)."

Thanks Jack!

I must admit that I do not check authenticity of my posts. If anyone can tell me of a non-biased arbitrator, I will attempt to do so more regularly. I know of no such arbitrator for the internet.

Congresional Salaries ( and I want tpo see term limits) ...Thx Tom Q!

Warren Buffett is asking everyone to forward  this email to a minimum of 20
people, and to ask each of those to do likewise.

In three days, most people in the United States will have the  message.
This is an idea that should be passed around.


Let's see if these idiots understand what people pressure is  all about.

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.

Average Salary  of a teacher . . .. . . . .. . . . . .. .$40,065

Average Salary of a  deployed Soldier . . .. . . .. $38,000

Here’s where the cuts should be  made!

Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the  best
quotes about the debt ceiling:

"I could end the deficit in five  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 three months and eight 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 Buffett 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

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 2017

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 Americans

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

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women  are void
effective 3/1/17. The American people did not make this contract with

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 go  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.  It's time!


If you agree, pass it  on.
