Jackson Lee: ‘Who Wants to
Make a Fuss About Social
Security When It´s Solvent?´

Cybercast News Service, by Elizabeth Harrington

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/3/2012 1:21:00 PM

Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D.-Texas) said last week that Republicans are being "frivolous" when they talking about reforming Social Security as a means toward fixing the federal government´s fiscal problems because Social Security is "solvent." According to Social Security´s trustees, the program has operated in the red each of the last two years. “Who wants to make a fuss about Social Security when it´s solvent?” she asked on Friday. “And then who wants to make a fuss about Medicare when it´s solvent until 2024?” In remarks on the House floor, the Texas Democrat said Republicans have a “frivolous perspective”

This delusional lying moron is the perfect example of why we are in the fix we are in.

Texas why is it that you continue to elect the witless and uninformed to represent you in Washington?
Being a liberal and a Democrat I guess allows you to be stupoid beyond the understanding of the human race.

SS has been paying out more than the tax has been taking in for at least one year. It is one more part of the deficit. Adding to the debt. Like the Postal service, and Medicare, and everything else the feds try to run.

#7, blacks don´t hold the francise when it comes to fools. Typically the number of fools in a specific group is roughly proportional to the percentage size of that group. If you would like to see a fine example of a fool in an other than black group, I suggest you look in the mirror. Racist remarks have no place in this forum.

Don´t worry...Obama wants to extend the "Taxcuts" for working Americans which will help "Save" Social Security....you know the 2.9% reduction in SS "contributions/Tax" which actual funds it. "By spending more while receiving less this program will then be as successful as our plans for American Business Growth"

The real irony in Sheila Jackson Lee´s remarks is that black men are cheated the most on social security.
black men are more likely to be single, so if they die before retirement age, they lose everything.
Compounding that is the fact that black male life expectancy is substantially less than that of whites, so even if they live to collect social security, they will not collect for nearly as many years as whites.
I would think that an african american congresswoman, who represents a majority minority congressional district, would ponder that irony.

Nominating Sheila to be the first black American woman to land on Mars.

One way trip, beginning in Houston.

"Houston... we no longer have a problem."
Works for me.

It´s an honor just to be nominated.
But once she´s "there"...
she can look for where the U.S. astronauts landed before her to plant that flag... s/o

Since we are in the South and our elections are overseen by the Federal Courts, we play a game every 10 years of defining election maps. Sheila is protected by court battles lasting more that a year to play connect the minorities. The game has become more complicated because minorities are intermixed. In cities like Houston or Dallas, white voters are shunted to surrounding districts while the remainder is grouped into intertwined Hispanic or black dominated districts. It gets harder and harder and a 3rd minority (gay) might well make it impossible.

How can anyone with an IQ that cracks 2 vote for this revoltingly stupid woman? She´s a national joke. Next time she´s seen will be at the State of the Union address hanging herself over the aisle to hug jug ears as he approaches the podium—her only claim to fame is being photographed trying to grab whoever is president coming down the aisle so she can add his picture to her scrap book. Sorry, I forgot to mention another claim to fame: having government cars ordered to pick her up to drive her one block to her office— the woman is the epitomé of classless nouveau riche. She´d do better as a circus clown and doesn´t even need a costume. Being "herself" would do the trick.

Uh, guys, she´s right. There will ALWAYS be dollars going to those collecting SS.

What she doesn´t say - and clearly doesn´t understand - is that the purchasing power of the dollar will necessarily fall.

SS is as solvent as any other government program. Yet the government is broke. Do the math.

Dims have told so many lies, they can no longer differentiate between fantasy and reality.

In J.L.´s case, I doubt she could even define "solvent".

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner
coordination with DOJ: ‘Now I see

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

I told her, "is it that obvious?" She laughed. I laughed. But she got me thinking. It happens sometimes. I´m not cool. But I´m ok with that. Good thing, because I never was cool.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.
