Obama threatens to hold up Social Security checks

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

obama interview

President Obama on Tuesday said he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3 if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks.

“I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, according to excerpts released by CBS News.

Mr. Obama’s comments followed remarks from the Senate’s top Republican, who said Tuesday that he did not see a way for Republicans and Democrats to come to agreement on meaningful deficit reduction as long as Mr. Obama remains in office.

Still, McConnell said Republicans would “do the responsible thing” to avoid default, suggesting that a deal on the debt ceiling could be reached without a “real” deficit reduction package.

    Mr. McConnell needs to go!!! This idiot is going to propose giving this moron in the Whitehouse more power!! We need to get rid of ALL the establishment Republicans. They are unwilling and lack the fortitude to do the right thing when it involves unpopular, but necessary, resolutions to serious problems. Let’s all let our rep’s and Senators know that we demand that they not cave and must not give this man sweeping powers to raise the debt ceiling at will!! This is absurd!!
    Oh yeah, go ahead, Mr. Obammy, hold back the SS checks. I’m sure the WELFARE checks will still be pouring out….and the FREE cell phones. Where in the hell are we living????

    • Retired USAF MSgt

      Roger that Patriot77.

      McConnell’s plan allows Obama to raise the debt ceiling three times in the next year with NO requirement to cut spending.

      As Michelle Malkin so aptly said “W.T.F!!”

    • StevenI

      I find it hard to believe McConnell would do such a thing. Unbelievable!

      And for Obama to use Seniors and Vets as a weapon of intimidation is utterly disgusting.
      This ranks up there with those who use their children as pawns to get at their ex-spouse after a divorce.

      Hope this gets published everywhere so Seniors and vets know what Obama is doing to them.

      This will probably gaurantee his defeat. He is the scummiest politician in my lifetime.

      LOL

      AND soon we will be the United States of Zimbawee if he is not voted out.

      steven,I agree with you s.s. is my only major sorce of income i have to clean houses to make it. I worked hard 23yrs. for my s.s. i/we paid into this and it is so unfair that it isn’t there for us. and our troops should get the salary of the congress and the senate. instead of the pay they get.wish a bunch of seals would storm in and arrest him and do to him what he is doing to us. Oh yeah take michele,with him.

    • gataheart

      Been wondering why seemingly ‘patriotic’ SealTeams or others haven’t already done this? Is there NO group w/the means and ability that has sense enough to realize this Government in its entirety has been taken over by Outside Interests? Can’t fathom how ONE man has wreaked so much havoc (the damages are DONE!] in so little time w/SO LITTLE OPPOSITION.

      If this idiot does withhold SSI checks someone out there will assassinate him for real. It would the Stupidest thing he’s done to date. Among all of the stupid things he’s done already.

    • azwayne

      Sorry you like at least 80% didn’t read the plan or your source is incompetent. Plan says real cuts must come with debt increases. They must be real because they would have to be approved by congress, showing incompetence of democrats in senate, should guarantee their loss in elections next year.

    • Patriot41

      az, and how do you propose that the Congress can deny the money request when it must have a 2/3rds majority vote to override the request? Democrats in the House would not allow that to happen, in the Senate neither. Also, the president still has veto power if they do not go along with him. Read on friend before you make such statements.

    • http://Facebook Que Dub

      HEY mr. obamma, SOCIAL SECURITY IS NOT, I SAID IS NOT AN ENTITLEMENT, IT’S OUR MONEY, WE PAID INTO IT!!!!!!! AND WHERE’S OUR COLA ??? YOU GET YOUR RAISES!!! WHY DON’T WE GET OURS????
      WHY DON’T YOU STOP ALL FOREIGN AID $$$, all those worthless GOVT programs, fire your czars, & STOP ALL THAT MONEY TO THE ILLEGALS BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE ????????
      JUST WHO IN THE H3LL ARE YOU WORKING FOR ??????????????????
      Oh , by the way, liberat LBJ stole the SS trust fund — & put it in the general fund & spent it!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Betty Retired

      Our newspaper this morning discussed Mc
      Connell’s suggestion. At first I was angry until I read the entire article. “Obama could request increases up to $2.5 Trillion in govt. borrowing authority in 3 seperate installments over the next year, as long as he simultaneously propsed spending cuts of greater size. In essence, McConnell’s proposal would greatly enhance Obama’s authority to avoid a default, while also virtually absolving Republicans oif responsibility if one occurred.” Montgomery Advertiser July 13, 2011.

    • Captain PJ

      President Obama made this threat to raise the fear of the American people and put pressure on the Republican Congress. Do you all realize that Congress can pass a bill raising the debt ceiling by 1 or 2 billion while simultaneously cutting spending by the exact same amount each month, sending the bill to Obama for his signature and avoid the Social Security threat?

      If Obama refuses to sign it when it arrives at his desk, then it is he who refuses to pay seniors their social security check. Obama is a notorius liar and I believe that Obama is bluffing. Can you imagine our egotistical, narcissistic president having to live with being the first president in American history to defualt on American loans? Can you imagine people calling him the “anti-senior president.”

    • murph

      CAN YOU ALSO IMAGINE HIM BEING THE ANTICHRIST?!

    • warren reynolds

      o would rather see the piece of shit get his handed to him in the election than have someone kill him, death would be to easy, a full out defeat on election day would harm him more than death, why? Because that’s how a narccacist thinks.

      Been wondering that myself since he [WHOEVER ‘HE’ IS] became POTUS. Would it not be a Patriotic Act?

    • Richard Higgins

      Killing Obama 1) Gives us riots that would end up in untold hundreds being killed, 2) Gives us another idiot equally as inept at being president as a president, and 3) Gives that idiot an almost certain sympathy win in the 2012 election. The way to seriously hurt our Socialist Muslim in Chief is to see him totally humiliated in the 2010 election like Carter was.

    • gataheart

      I’d “LIKE” your comment except I cannot condone the use of the ‘n’ word ..but certainly applaud your remark otherwise.

    • LadyLiberty

      Hey Captain PJ,

      Obama threatens that he can’t promise that the Social Security, disability checks may not go out on Aug 3rd.

      Well, Newt Gingrich on Hannity last night has the perfect answer for this predicament.

      To call Obama’s bluff: Republicans should pay the Social Security Payments that are due in August.

      1. Just post 100 billion dollars as the Raising the debt Ceiling for paying August’s Social Security payments.

      2. Then post 100 billion for the Spending Cuts for the Social Security payments.

      This can be done each month; up until the 2012 election day. The Republicans look great and they did their job by matching and balancing dollar for dollar the spending cuts and raising the debt. Republicans could ask Obama now what are you going to do? But, in reality this plan will work and is the best plan I have heard so far and your job is done. Republicans saved the day!!! And, Obama looks like a Jerk.

      Please Write/email your congressmen to let them know this plan before McConnell screws everything up. I have written to Boehner, McConnell, and my district house Rep. this morning.

    • http://verizon Ann Rand

      i saw that ,too. Sounds like a good idea to me. That would really fix him up and help the country at the same time.

    • Captain PJ

      Gingrich’s plan is superior to anything our Congress has in the works. And I must admit, Gingrich’s 100 billion ammounts sounds more realistic than my 1 or 2 billion suggestion.

    • azwayne

      You are right and that is solution, doesn’t fit well in politicians play book to steal more from taxpayers.

    • Ltjg

      Dear Captain, Again I support your Wisdom. I saw this discussed by several people on Fox News last night. I watch Hannity every chance I get. We must be watching at the same time (smile). I agree also with everything you said about Bachmann yesterday. I love both the women. All canidates have something good to say and very productive. It is still too early for ME to make a commitment but I do have my favorites so far ( The Ladies). Both show more enthusiasm, more desire, more passion, more excitement, more hope and generally much more courage than some of their counterparts. Pawlenty is a good man but way too dry. My hero Newt also has great things to contribute and a great Historian but I think he serves his Country better right where he is. He does have some fabulous ideas but again perhaps around for too long to Run. I will support any of the canidates all the way no matter WHO is nominated. I think it is best if all of them focus their attacks on Obama instead of each other. They should all stand United against a common goal. They should all congratulate each other for mutual deep concerns but try to point out WHY their plan would be better. No Bashing of each other. That should also pertain to us here on this site when we exchange ideas, look for common solutions and support each other. Please ignore Bozos like DEFEATCONSERVATISM. As much as I wanted to bash him yesterday for insulting a new BLOGGER (MistyinGa), I simply gave a thumbs down. Feeding into him only entertains him or her. Nothing to contribute except insults trying to anoy good people because he is bored with his Video Game. Ignore people like this. Stay focused and find sound solutions. Thanks for always being here Captain. You are a Good American and have much to contribute.

    • Captain PJ

      I do not feed into Defeat’s tirades of stupidity and obviouis attempt to distract us from our discussions. I think that’s the mission of Defeat: to get all of us so upset with his/her posts that we leave the site and go and do something else. If you think about it, this site is also a sort of “grass roots” movement where we are able to voice our opinions and communicate with others out there who feel the same way as we do.

      I missed Sean Hannity last night as I was watching the All Star game–what a waste I admit, but I am a baseball nut even more than I am a political hack.

    • Patriot41

      True PJ, and in the process McConnell has insured that the GOP leadership has lost all creditability. This is the mentality of the middle of the road moderate leadership in the GOP. Obama did not offer up this deal, Sen. McConnell did, explains everything!

      If the conservatives in the House have any common sense and decency, they will go ahead with a proposed budget cutting out discretionary spending, capping all spending and going forward with the balanced budget amendment without raising taxes. At this point in time, that is the “ONLY” option they have left to establish any creditability with the citizens of this country.

    • Captain PJ

      McConnells plan is a NO GO. Boehner, Cantor and the rest of the Republican Congress think it’s no good. McConnell will change his mind as he’ll look like a dufus if he doesn’t.

    • warren reynolds

      Look the only thing Boehner has to do is say this on tv.
      “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

That means non- muslims pay for muslims healthcare. read it on page 107.

      Notice that BHO threatens to keep SS checks, but not welfare, food stamps, Bennies for illegals, etc, etc. People on SS were forced, along with their employers to pay into SS. Now BHO and the Dems not only tax our SS, but now they threaten to keep it. He is purposely trying to bait us into a revolution. And to think, Ronald Reagan was almost assassinated. Kennedy was way to conservative for the progs. Only real conservatives get killed. BHO is afraid to withold welfare checks, because he knows the low life’s would kill him, instead of voting for him. He’s buying their votes with the money we contributed to SS and medicare. He knows that he has lost our votes anyway.

      Lee, what McConnell is doing is raising the white flag of surrender by saying he as a Senator (supposedly one of the most powerful entities in our govt.,) cannot deal with the president. That is pure crap to put it mildly.

      His motive is to let the president continue his wild spending in hopes that he will overdue it, which he has already, and turn the public against the democrat party. That might be a good plan except for the fact that in the process it will drive this country into bankruptcy that it cannot recover from.

    • EdinNola

      If he carries through with his plan, I suggest that the folks that put McConnell in office, as well as those who elected the others who vote to increase the debt limit, get out the vote against these traitors. Beyond that, Obama MUST Go – OMG. The worst thing that has ever hit this country.

    Social Security funds are supposed to be in a “locked Box”. The funds were intended to be kept seperate from the “General Revenue” account. Now I know that the money has been stolen and used for non-Social Security functions but doesn’t the money collected each month still go into an account just for S.S.? Why is that money not being used to guarantee payments?

    • slapjack

      Our illustrious Congress has used it as a CASH COW forever. We must demand that congress be on social security and medicare just like WE THE PEOPLE instead of the Master Plan they have. Congress is not a social elite Job. They were elected to represent us, not see how much goodies they can get for the lousy job they have been doing over the years.

  • Higgy

    This is perhaps the worst lie Obama has made during his campaigning and presidency. There is plenty of money in the treasury to pay all our bills. If social security is held back it will be because of the slime bag boy blunder. He authorized ‘fast and furious’ so he could impose stringent gun control. Now he wants to hold seniors hostage so he can get more money to give to terrorists or otherwise waste.

  • tweety

    Typical scare tactics. Obama, if the deadline comes about, clearly as the choice to prioritize who gets paid and who doesn’t. So let him push Social Security to the back burner in favor of Planned Parenthood and High Speed Rail. How do you like that, granny?

    This government if so corrupt it is pathetic! They are all a bunch of morons and need to go! They couldn’t give seniors a 2% cost of living increase but it didn’t stop them from raising their salaries much more than 2%! This was supposed to be a secure fund, if the government kept their hands out of the cookie jar we wouldn’t be short on funds! If SS is so good, why aren’t the government workers required to be a part of it instead of having their own safe fund which will give them much more in retirement SS? You are all a bunch of theives

    • gataheart

      and the honest, hardworking American? ..’slave’ to the NEW ORDER.

  • Rodger in WA

    With that statement, Obama has earned the title Scare Monger In Chief. Interruption of Social Security checks is a flat out lie.
    So is failure to raise the debt ceiling reuslting in default of payments on US debt. If the debt ceiling is not raised, there is sufficient monthly revenue to pay interest to holders of on US bonds.

  • C. Strasburger

    Mitch McConnell is right now talking about making a historic capitulation. So fearful of being blamed for a default, McConnell is proposing a compromise that lets Barack Obama raise the debt ceiling without making any spending cuts at all.

    Consider sending McConnell a weasel as testament to his treachery. His address is 601 W. Broadway, Room 630, Louisville, KY 40202 and the phone number is (502) 582-6304.

    Here are the facts:

    President Barack Obama has announced that he may not be able to mail Social Security checks out on 3 August if he has not been given an increased debt ceiling to borrow more money for the government. The blackmail attempts have officially begun. Give us more money now, or watch the entitlement recipients in YOUR Congressional District start to get it.

    According to James Pethokoukis, the US Treasury is not precluded from specifically making the next Social Security payment by actual liquidity. “Social Security payments Treasury needs to make on Aug 3. $22 billion. Treasury cash balance on Aug. 3: $74 billion.”

    This implies these payments would be stopped as a result of fiscal priorities greater than making Social Security payments that totaled an amount greater than the $52Bn that the Treasury would have on its books as of 3 August 2011. As concerned American citizens, we are owed a dutiful and factual accountings of what those specific priorities happen to be.

    This is, after all, the most honest and open administration in the history of terrestrial democracy. Isn’t it?

  • shannon853

    hold up social security? far better idea, hold up pay for congress and above until they set a budget that pays 5% on the debit of congress (with 10% of their pay going toward that cause), one that stops any and all aid of any type to illegals, stop allowing congress from raising their wages or benifits and force all american businesses and industry back to american soil.

  • Jim Buzzell

    Obama can not do anyting congress has not authorized him to do; he is the chief executive not the law maker. Wake up America it is who you send to Washington to represent you that is the basic problem; the House and the Senate make the rules, the chief executive implements those rules… Over the years the Legislative Branch has abdicated they powers and responsibilities to the executive branch to provide cover for their short commings, but this last election proved that the American people are now awake and responding.

      Actually Jim, it is the House that controls the purse. In 2010, the citizens of this country who believed the GOP candidates for Congress, voted for someone they thought would keep their promises to cut spending without raising taxes. They had in fact, awoke. Problem is, they got candidates who apparently do not believe in keeping their promises. I don’t see how you can hold the citizens of this country liable for liars.

  • Vern Nay

    The elder taxpayers like me have had SS deducted from their pay their entire working life.That is money I paid into my retirement fund, its not money that congress, the president or anyone else has the right to use or borrow.

What can we do, they won’t impeach him, the way it looks we can’t even vote him or congress out, what’s next another revolution in this country, all these old timers so called leaders in Congress gotta go, it’s out of control reckless spending, irresponsible politics, this is not what being elected to serve the people is all about. It seems nothing said or done is enough to stop it, even this post falls on deaf ears, it changes nothing, our government leaders are just “worthless”. How do you get 50 million people riled up and pissed off enough to do something. Just sounding off to your Congressmen and Senators isn’t cutting it, that’s so manipulated and controlled it’s sickening. It’s called the best Government in the world, then why am I so sick and disgusted with it, they are an embarrassment to us and the world, shame on them, shame on us.

  • Daniel

    From Sen. Obama’s Floor Speech, March 20, 2006:

    The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that “the buck stops here.” Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

    At the time, Senator Obama was urging Congress not to tolerate an increase that would bring the debt ceiling to $9 trillion. Under President Obama, the debt ceiling has been raised to $14.3 trillion. Even without counting most unfunded liabilities, the national debt is now calculated to be nearing $14.1 trillion. It increases about $4.22 billion per day (each citizen’s share stands at roughly $45K). Thus, Democrats will soon demand that the debt ceiling be raised, lest the sky fall. When they do, they will be asking for a significant boost in a ceiling that is already 60 percent higher than the one Barack Obama said was “a sign of leadership failure” five years ago.

      Mr. Obama is also threatening to withhold payments to veterans. That means no military retirement pay, no veterans disability pay, perhaps no pay even to active duty military. My husband and I both served a combined 46 years of our lives for a measly pittance of a retirement check that we still have to pay taxes on. We both have disabilities and my husband recently retired on Social Security and I am too disabled to ever work again thanks to Uncle Sam’s military. So if the federal government reneges on their obligations to those of us who gave a good part of our lives to serve our country and protect even your freedoms, what do you propose we live on. Perhaps it would serve the president’s purposes even better if all the “worthless” seniors and disabled vets would just starve to death. Save the government the cost of setting up death panels.

    This man would actually stop the SS Retirement checks if he could, in order to create a major crisis for which he already knows the solution. Then he would use the solution to get people to accept anything from him to be saved. “Rules For Radicals”, Saul Alinsky. Read it if you haven’t. Remember also the words of Rahm Emanuel;” Never let a good crisis go to waste.”

    • Back Bencher

      Never let a good crisis go to waste! A proverb from a pol to be sure! Let’s review just a bit. Social Security, according to the Supremes, is a tax, not a benefit. So the change you get back is due soley to the largess of the guv ment!

      I once read, in the WaPo I think, a cartoon comment that said “Nothing is too good for our vets! And when we can give them nothing, that is exactly what they will get! Welcome, retired and retiring Americans to the US Veterans’ side of the fence!
      If you want to get what you think you are entitloed to, go get elected to Congress. OKay!

    • Greg K

      David: Solid analysis. the Saul Alinsky name needs to be spread around. Hillary did her masters thesis on him and is an admirer. Obama and his crew are out to destroy our republic…I say republic because there is a difference between a republic and a democracy…like the big difference between our 1776 revolution and the French revolution. How to fix it? We may have to die in the streets with our guns in our hands? We will try politically and at first peacefully demonstrate…but if our rights are tramped on via taxes, repression of the 1st and 2nd amendments, freedom of religion…ATF coming and arresting us in the middle of the night, criminalizing Pastors/others because they don’t agree with the left’s agenda and say so… I can’t think of anything better to die for… we will have to fight just like in 1776. I am ready to meet my Lord. I hope this isn’t the case but they know that and are trying to circumvent the 2nd amendment. they know it is the gun that keeps a people free…it is the last step in government repression and the history of the world’s greatest murders bare witness to this.I am not a war monger but a man of peace but I am very concerned about what is happening. Second part…the Islamists are in bed with the Alinsky followers. Please read “the Grand Jihad” by Andrew C. McCarthy. The Islamists have violence and murder as their mantra and proclaim it at the top of the hills and I believe we have an Islamist if not an outright sympathizer in office. It is well documented on how this unholy alliance has been formed and uncovers the fog so you can clearly see the danger. 3rd piece…Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh etc..need to try to reach the youth with the facts…there needs to be a new, edgy marketing to the youth. We need new young lovers of the constitution working with them. They must come from every background and from a broad spectrum of colleges. It can’t be done with the current approach. They have been public schoolized for 18 or more years and were duped by the Obama campaign. 4th: The Republicans are weak to say the least. John McCain did not want to be president and if he did he didn’t show it by his body language. We need new blood to go out in public and say just what I said. To put it out there and calmly, courageously lead our country. We must get better organized and funded. The people with the big money have the most to loose or gain but they must step up. Any publications that you have read, that are solid in their clarity, I would appreciate you giving me the title and author. Most Sincerely Greg

      Very well said. Hopefully it will be read by millions and they will see the merit in what you write. There is a sad day coming for our nation and I hope it will be limited to the cutting off of benefits to those who have been “using” the tax payers for their own sustenance causing them to get up off the couch and go to work to earn a living on their own. But if the worst situation has to occur, then there are a lot of patriots who are “ready to meet God” if necessary to save whatever can be salvaged of this great nation for our decendants.

    The House should challenge Ovomit on his threats to hold up Social Security payments. As far as I know, the SS Trust Fund is not exhausted and the government by law is obligated to pay recipients what the have coming and on time. The house should initiate a bill that obligates the government to pay SS reciprients and military personnel during a federal government shutdown. Challenge the Democrats and Ovomit stop the bill. Close down the EPA, the Energy Dept, The Education Dept, and Agricultural Dept and put the employees on furlough until a debt deal, without tax increases, is agreed to.

  • Ian Michael Noone

    Mr. Bokunewicz made a comment about welfare bums…Well there are a lot of people out there that do abuse the system, but there are also a lot of people who have families and are out of work due to the administrations screwups. There are disabled that rely on that card to survive. Don’t lump in all users of welfare as bums. Some of these people would love to work, and they have to do something to feed their families. That is unless you are willing to help personally. Apparently you are one of the lucky ones that got to keep their job, or at least able to find another one. But one thing I do agree with, and that is drug testing those who receive. Also proof that they are either disabled or are currently looking for work daily. That should weed out the bums.

      If he wants to get reelected put the $500 trillion he took from Soc.Sec.to start his ObamaCare which is a blow in the A**..Taking our tax payers money should be against the law..Its not his to take.We have a bunch of self serving traitors running our country..No raise for Seniors,but they get one.We were just informed we lost our Medication help,out State drop the income level,itputs a lot of people out.Senator Durbin is one who voted for Obama care and the Dream act.Election day we can vote against him

  • lizaz

    This is extortion of the worst kind…scare the seniors so they revolt and demand a raise in the debt ceiling and new taxes for everyone. I hope most seniors are smart enough to ignore his corrupt statements, and if he tries to stop SS checks, he will incur the wrath of WE THE PEOPLE in Nov 2012. It will be a huge backlash and he will go down in flames…..start packing!!!!

    • Texas Granny

      This is one Senior that is not afraid. I do believe that Obama did this as just a scare tactic, he doesn’t have the authority to stop SS checks from going out, but should he it will be political sucide for the Muslim-in-Chief.

    • http://www.dbic-inc.com HappyKat

      The muslim in chief has done many things since taking office that he doesn’t have the authority to do. And our congress has let him get away with it. They let him get away with everything because it is what they want too. But letting Obumma do it gives them a scapegoat to blame for doing their bidding.

      The shutting down of services has been going on for a long time. Just one example; we used to have a good mental health system that took care of the people who needed it. But the state governments shut the mental hospitals down so they could use the money for other purposes. Now we have a glut of homeless people who, under the old system, would have been taken care of by the now defunct system.

      Now they are calling the bought and paid for social security system an entitlement. If they tell a big enough lie loud and long enough it will become the new truth. Once they can convince enough people of it they will dismantle the SS system but will find some way to keep taxing us for it.

      And the most insidious tax of all is the inflation caused by the Fed and the treasury printing money with no backing that reduces the value of the money already in existence. That means that your savings and any other assets you already own are being taxed on the sly by the system of printing fiat money.

HE WOULDN’T KNOW HOW TO LEAD A COUNRTY EVEN IF HE HAD A BOOK WITH PICTURES IN IT THAT SAID ” HOW TO RUN A COUNTRY. ” EVERYDAY I SEE HIS FACE JUST MAKES ME WOUNDER EVEN MORE WHAT IN THE WORLD WERE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THINKING WHEN THEY VOTED FOR THIS
      SAD EXAMPLE OF A PRESIDENT AND COMMANDER AND CHIEF. IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE O ALREADY, PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR COUNTRY, AND THE SAFE RETURN TO WHERE EVER HE CAME FROM!!!!!!!!!!

  • pamela patrick

    SS should never have been touched by the government, as far as I am concerned they stold from the hardworking people of this country. This is money they put in and worked very hard for and this ass wipe calls people on SS free loaders. What about all his ILLEGALS on welfare,food stamps,meidcal etc, now they are free loaders. IT IS TIME TO GET RID OF OBAMA AND ALL OF HIS FOLLOWERS, IT IS TIME TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK. DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS, STOP ALL SERVICES,AND NO MORE ANCHOR BABIES. CLOSE OUR BORDERS AND PUT ARMED MILLITARY THERE, WE ARE AT WAR WITH MEXICO. OUR PRESIDENT IS DISTROYING OUR COUNTRY.

If people would look past Rush Limbaugh’s personality and listen to what the dude has to say, and Shawn Hannity and the others in conservative talk radio, you people would have known what an evil person he is. The only thing they have said about him I don’t agree with, is they call him an idiot. HE IS NOT AN IDIOT! HE PURE, COMMUNIST EVIL AND ALL THE OTHER DEMS AS WELL.

    • Cathy

      Corky, I agree with you 100%. If it comes down to delaying social security checks, I think that will backfire upon this pretender that we have for a president. He assumes he will frighten the seniors, and they will scream for their representatives to give in to Obama’s demands. He is a liar and not to be trusted, and I don’t think he is eligible to be the president as I don’t think he is a citizen. We’ve had bad presidents before, but Jimmy Carter was a prince compared to this one.

  • Tony

    This president will do anything to make the Republicans look bad and come out looking like the hero. He is evil enough to harm the seniors as long as he still get his piece of the pie. 2012 cannot come soon enough.

    Obama’s actions are really disgraceful, as he tries to scare the elder, the sick and our armed forces with threats to hold their checks, if we don’t raise the debt limit.Rather than lead, Obama is dividing our nation. Rather than find solutions, he is playing political games.

    Is it possible that “we the people” could hire some type of legal representation to sue Obama? I believe if we got organized we could do it. I am willing to pay my share of the legal fees. No one is listening to our demands. We have to act now . I’m beginning to wonder if this is part of his plan to start civil unrest which of course would allow him to enact martial law. If we dont get someone to represent our interests soon we may well end up in being dead or worst yet roommates in a fema camp somewhere.

They have nothing to offer. They are simply looking for some kind of sick entertainment. In answer to your concern…I know which side all my Military friends would support. You have nothing to worry about. They all realize the true enemy especially since he is threatening further Military cuts of those that defend our Country when now at the present time many if not all of their families are struggling to make ends meet. The President can pass out as many Medals as he pleases and give a bunch of Lip Service but we all know he is not sincere, can not be trusted, and is only doing and saying things for our Military to make himself look good.

    We need to start boycotting everything we know liberals have their hands in, example:(CNSNews.com) – A conservative advocacy group is urging its supporters to cancel their policies with Progressive Insurance, after Peter Lewis, the company’s chairman, reportedly gave $8.5 million to the American Civil Liberties Union. The multi-million dollar donation will help the ACLU advance its liberal agenda, including its “war on Christmas,” the American Family Association warned. In an email message, AFA Founder and Chairman Don Wildmon urged his supporters to “sign a letter to Chairman Lewis, letting him know” that his donation to the ACLU is prompting conservatives to cancel their insurance policies. The AFA recently announced that it was ending its boycott of Target stores, after the retailer promised to use the word “Christmas” in its advertising and in-store promotions.

    Shows what a dirtbag Obama really is that he would withhold SS checks instead of cutting a couple of his pet government programs. That is just cruel. That would be almost like threatening his kids or something.

  • Justwondering

    Why is it that, we just tell each other how terrible that he is? Why not just urge our real elected officals to investigate him. Then, after the fndings, impeach him. Then, strip him from everything and deport him off our soil. After all, muslims will help each other. So let them, help him and his family. This will remove him from ours!

  • Stinkfinger

    Should an agreement not be reached before Aug. 2ed there are many ways for the administration to order spending so as to meet obligations such as social security, disability payments, & servicing the interest on the debt.

    According to a major investment banking firm, the “government” has adequate income to pay SS, Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans Benefits, the Military and interest on the debt, even WITHOUT an increase in the debt ceiling. So why does the Obamaniac threaten to stop paying SS benefit checks? To frighten the ill-informed among them into supporting his disastrous spending policies!!

  • Air Force Cop retired

    What gives that Mutha uFck’r the right to hold off paying out social security checks as a threat, if they don’t come to an agreement, and allow the debt ceiling to be risen? Which is SOP for the Communist strong-arm tactics right out of Lenin’s playbook. That’s our money, I paid cold-hard cash for 44 years to FICA. It’s not some freebe that this illegal Muslim is handing out to his Chicago drug-dealing soul-bros or non-farming ‘Black Farmers’ living in the big cities!

    • Captain PJ

      Misty…don’t take the rants of Defeat personally. I don’t. Ive been reading Defeat’s and others like him/her for months. Their intent is to disrupt our discussions and political (conservative dialogue and ideology) because the left fears this kind of thought and dialogue. We’re doing in 2011 what Obama and his followers were able to do in 2007-2008. That’s why the Tea Party movement frightens them so much and they do everything they can to vilify and demonize and marginalize them. And they do the same to conservative websites.

      Yes, what was said was cruel and ridiculous–but, that what defeat does…rants and raves and his/her pointless tirades are intended to distract. So don’t get discouraged and your particpation is always welcomed and appreciated. Most of us, as you probably have already figured out are polite in our disagreement.

    So, social security checks and military checks on hold? I bet those welfare checks go out though. They are just trying to scare people. He and his administration are a joke!! If he pisses off the military, watch out.

  • D. Rafferty

    If Social Security Checks don’t go out the President and Congress should not get their pay checks either.

  • Glen

    Go ahead you lying piece of crap, stop the SS checks. I dare you!!!!You don’t have the balls to do that but more importantly, you cannot do it. You just want to make people think you can because that is what Chicago and Kenya type thugs do. I want you to keep saying things like that because it might just piss off enough people who voted for you the last time that you won’t get their vote this time. I love it when you say things like that because it just may wake up enough people. Ignorance is curable but stupidity is permanent.

    As a reminder to all of you, Social Security and Medicare are not entitlement programs like welfare. We “WORKING” Americans pay for it so it is a debt that is owed us. Also, illegals cannot collect Social Security unless they are legals who have paid into it.I have yet to see any factual proof that illegals can collect SS. Now, maybe they can collect Welfare and Medicaid but not SS.If anyone can prove me wrong on this then I welcome the factual proof. However, if that happens I will definitely be pissed off all over again.

  • Captain PJ

    Obama is either playing chicken or he’s outright bluffing. He’s so committed to tax hikes that he’s willing to drive over a political cliff to get them. Unwilling to compromise on spending and unwilling to cut his beloved stimulus to pay our creditors, President Obama is threatening to prevent Social Security checks from going out on 3 August. “There may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it,” Obama said. And, that wasn’t it, Obama continued, “This is not just a matter of Social Security checks. These are veterans’ checks, these are folks on disability and their checks. There are about 70 million checks that go out.” First, that statistic tells us that something is wrong with the country. There are a grand total of 300 million people in the country, right?

    If each person receives one check, that means that nearly a quarter of the American population is being paid by the government, which means they’re being paid by fellow taxpayers. And yet Democrats think that statistic isn’t high enough–they want to spend more to up both the size and scope of those checks. More importantly, however, Obama’s statements that he may have to stop Social Security, veterans’ and disbility checks shows just how bankrupt the country is. If we literally don’t have the cash to pay those checks out of our current stockpiles, how is borrowing more money going to cure the problem?

    • Captain PJ

      There’s another problem for Obama, too. By tacitly admitting that government benefit schemes are month-to-month, he’s admitting that the underlying structure of these systems is not self-sustaining–like Democrats kept telling us. Now that’s a major shift for a man who, in August 2010, proclaimed, “Social Security is not in crisis…We’re going to have to make some modest adjustments in order to strengthen it.” More than modest adjustments are in order (Mr. President) id Social Security recipients are one congressional vote from going without their checks.

      Seniors should also realize at this point that the GROWTH of government has bankrupted them. The money they gave the government over the course of their lives to be put in some mythical lockbox somewhere, some misnamed “trust fund,” is GONE. That magical “trust fund” is nothing of the kind–it is a financial structure full of IOUs. The cash was raided long ago, distributed to ther seniors, other unemployed people, other government dependants. America’s benfits system is no longer self-funded. IT IS CHINA FUNDED.

    I would say we will get those Social Security checks.
    Why? Because ‘debts’ get paid first, then the day-to-day expenditures.

    The Social Security ‘coffer’ would not (ever) be empty if Congress had not been raiding it for decades. Instead, there is nothing in there but IOUs.

    But, guess what! An IOU is a ‘debt’.
    So, pay up, Obama!

    • Captain PJ

      Our estemmed commander-in-chief has now embraced a binary choice: he can screw either current taxpayers or he can screw past taxpayers. Those who depend on their Social Security check to pay the rent are now being asked to suffer a double burden. The burden of paying their original Social Security tax as well as the burden of forgoing their expected return. The alternative is asking those who currently pay taxes to suffer a double burden: paying a higher tax rate and then forgoing their check somewhere dwon the road. Of, of course, President Obama can elide the choice altogether by placing the burden on future generations.

      Obama would like to choose a third option–nut those dastardly Republicans are stopping him from dumping fiscal insolvency on our children and grandchildren. Unwilling to fundamentally rethink his governmental approach, Obama has now been forced into this game of Liar’s Bluff. And he has made his choice: SENIORS, WHO ARE MORE CONSERVATIVE THAN YOUNGER VOTERS AND WHO DONATE LESS MONEY TO POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS, WILL PAY THE PRICE!

    • Captain PJ

      Another problem for Obama: those seniors have children and grandchildren–and we don’t like to see our grandparents paying the price for President Obama’s fiscal irresponibility. The answer is simple: Cut government and pay what is owed, both to our foreign creditors and to those citizens who PIAD INTO THE SYSTEM–and free Americans to pursue their own business in the process.

    • Charles D. Carter, RA

      Social Security and Medicare would not be “broken” if all government employees, including all legislators, were made to be a part of the system instead of being exempt from it. Congress got tinkeritus and borrowed heavily from Social Security money set aside in the general fund tipping the scales. By shifting around I.O.U.’s, they manipulated funds like a legalized Ponzi scheme until the I.O.U,.’s came due and are now finding themselves in trouble. They are the ones responsible and yet voted themselves raises in a lackluster economy. Instead of fixing the imbalance of trade and stimulating domestic jobs, they continued to follow big business demands with corporate welfare and outsourcing of domestic jobs resulting in higher unemployment, lowered tax revenue, and higher draws for unemployment money from the budget. 2 major wars on terror don’t help, nor do military expenditures for new toys like the Raptor and stealth naval vessels that cost several billion apiece. There are other items that could be cut but lack the emotional value necessary to sway public opinion because they do not affect us directly. If left unchecked, we stand to become the next emerging third world country in our lifetime.

    • dean

      yes all the iou’s but look at how our government acted instead of running america they fought like little 4&5 year old’s and spent our tax dollar’s+ then call on us who they have stolen from to pay more tax dollars to bail ‘em out just like a 5 year old. we need to impeach obama and all of the government. but the facts are so scarry so much more than obama holding the vets and seniors hostage to get his way.. just like a 5 year would do temper fit… but thisis very serious alot will strave or alot of vet will lose a care take because if the system doesn’t pay the care giver will not be there and alot could die.. we do not need to sit back and allow our leaders to do this they made the mess they should be cut in pay to pay back not us we did not do this.. look at how they live 2,000.00 dollars bottles of just wine by our tax dollars that is how they get paid.. we pay for the jets and all the food they eat by our tax dollars while we hardly make it from day to day. they need to live a more simple life but they need to grow up take their own blame stop passing the buck. and the seniors paid their taxes to get the ss check that was agreement between the government when those taxes were taken i have said all along even when i was a child the people should be able to have a account that has their money there when they retire so the government will keep their hand off… after all when we go shopping if we don’t have the money we don’t but the nice pair of pants or shirt or dress or what ever sometime we have to put food back because we do not have the funds .. the government need to live more simple and stop the waste of 100.00 steaks and 2,000.00 bottles of wine and the jet rides . our tax dollars pay for all this. we need to demand the waste stops help starts w/ america not abroad as it has now we have no money that was ours for when we needed look at the leaders how they wasted their life style needs to change we do not need to pay tax dollars for their large pay checks… they have not worked for us they wasted our money as well as what they earned so…. greed… doesn’t turn out pretty.no! we do not need to help our government we did that wasn’t enough… we need money to live and some aren’t doing that very well w/ all the cost of daily living. they need to live w/in their means too!and we need to do real soul searching on next election… but i think we ned to fire all the government and start off again with a very tight budget for them as well we are on a tight budget because of our governmenti know ican afford to be taxed anymore . i can’t tell you when i have bought a new outfit.i live w/ what i can do so should our leaders.it starts at home not abroad.

    • Olesarge

      Until the 1960s the Social Security funds were in a locked account and could only be used for the intended purpose. It was LBJ (A Democrat) who had those funds released to the General account. He claimed that they could be better managed and controlled that way. The real reason was so he could pay for the Viet Nam war. Don’t take my word for it. Do the research yourself.

    • Charles D. Carter, RA

      Why is it that when budget talks come to an impass, that retiree’s have to be the ones to suffer cuts? No one has mentioned holding up comgressmen and women’s pay. Perhaps if we were able to, than they wouldd have more of an incentive to work things out. No one has mentioned repayment of the Social Security “loans” Congress gave itself, congressional raises, 2 wars costing trillions to operate, Government contracts lent to contractors delinquent on their own taxes, the NATO defense budget of which we pay 75%, The First Ladies entourage of over 100 personal staff whenever she travels abroad, Welfare that has become a legacy instead of a helping hand, Government Grants (most of which are useless), Privatizing NASA, Government healthcare and pensions. I could go on but I’m sure that there are others out there with their own ideas and the only way Congress will know you are not happy is to contact them. Otherwise, they think everything is ok and that we are their own personal ATM machine. We are expecting millionaire congressmen and women to create a balanced budget when thay never had to do one for themselves and have no idea what it is like to go paycheck to paycheck. Wake up America or we will be the next third world country to emerge.

Congressmen vote not what is right, but what will get them re-elacted and gain their party power. Special interests have full time lobbyists that also make large campaign contributions. Who do you think they will listen to? They need to have term limits with maximum number of terms allowed to break this cycle/. Then maybe, the good old boy network will disappear.

If the federal judge doesn’t answer this question, I will call the bar association to see if I can get his license pulled. I Have done it before and it does work. I am 5 and 0 in federal court.

      Remember, the President is just the spokesperson for his/her political party and as such, is the frontman for all political discussions. When people vote, they think that they are electing a person when in reality, they are appointing the party he/she represents and its ideology.
      Bush / Cheney took the golden goose that president Clinton left us with a budget surplus and shot it. Now Obama / Biden wants to cook it. A dysfunctional Congress is more concerned with who has power than with what is good for the nation and will use whatever leverage each side can muster to overthrow the other in spite of the consequences. There are other issues that should be on the budget chopping block but are not because they do not have the same emotional clout that would get the public upset enough to care about especially if these issues do not affect them directly.
      1. 2 wars costing trillions.
      2. Congressional pay raises in a poor enonomy.
      3. Welfare that has become a legacy instead of a helping hand.
      4. Repayment of Social Security money borrowed by Congress.
      5. The NATO defense budget of which we pay 75%.

      A little more fiber in your diet please. If you have proof of these alligations, I will stand by your side and defend what yoy say with my last breath. However, lacking that, focus instead on the political party that chose him and their reasoning for doing so. POWER. Pure and simple. While the Republicans (and I’m one by the way) were busy redistricting to gain advantage of political strongholds in the elections, the Democrats saw a way to play the race card that transcends all boundaries for one purpose. POWER. The result is the first affirmative action president in our history and we all know how that is working. Let’s face it, the two party system has failed in that they only represent whatever special intrest group grabs their attention. Unless the common voter can support a permenent lobbist in Washington, our chances of ever being heard are slim to none. One side represents interests of large corporations and the ultra rich while the other the desparately poor. Either way, if you are a working person, you are the one that pays.

We have allowed ouselves to be emotionally pre-occupied when we should focus on the source of the real problems. Who borrowed from Social Security? Who launched us into several recent wars? and who got us an affirmative action president in the White House? Who has granted corporate welfare to billionaires?

    If I am not mistaken, the Social Security Tax is taken out of OUR paycheck. It is supposed to be seperate from payroll taxes and is not supposed to go into the general fund.

    • Chuck

      Congress has been misappropriating funds from Social Security for some time, now. How do you think the Bill Clinton administration and Congress balanced the budget?

    • Robert Wayne

      The first president to steal money out of the social security fund was Lyndon Johnson…that’s right the same LBJ who got thousands of Americans killed in Vietnam so that he could make millions with his shipping company sending supplies to southeast Asia. Also the same LBJ who started the porch monkey welfare rolls at the expense of white taxpayers. And things have continued to get worse and worse.

    • Charles D. Carter, RA

      Robert, a little history lesson is in order. Being a draftee and Vietnam combat vet, I wanted to know why we got into Vietnam in the first place and did a little research. 1. WW II. Japan attacks Manchuria in 1939 and S.E. Asia in 1941 and the allies boycott Japan from getting raw war materials in an effort to curb their militaristic expansion tendencies. Japan retalliates with its attack at Pearl Harbor and we are at war. The League of Nations sends emmasaries to both China and Vietnam for permission to build airbases there from which to strike back at Japan. In return for permission to build our airbases, we are asked to help them purge their country of Japanese troops. Vietnam sees this allied help as a means of unifying their country when the war ends. The allies do not see this the same way and only see this as a means of defeating the Japanese.
      2.When Stalin invades Germany, and Germany finally surrenders, the war with Japan is still raging. Truman and Churchill still need Stalins help to conquer Japan. Stalin agrees to do so only if he can keep land he took invading Germany and they both agree. Japasn surrenders but Stalin never gives back the land he took in eastern Europe setting the stage for the cold war that followed.
      3. Ho Chi Minh declares his own government at the end of WW II but this goes against what the big 3 determine in Potsdam at the end of the war in Europe in 1945. France petitions the meeting for a return of Vietnam to pre-war status meaning French re-occupation. Disappointed that Vietnam is not granted independence, uncle Ho approaches Stalin and Mao for help on the side, and gets it to help expell the French from his country.
      4. It is now 1950 and the Communists start a war in Korea. with Stalin holding onto eastern Eurpoe, and the war in Korea in full swing, President Eisenhower fears that the domino effect has begun and that Vietnam is the kingpin holding communism at bay. With the French expelled, that means we now enter the war in south vietnam where the French left off.
      5. Esienhower and his predessesor Kennedy only send advisors and supplies to south Vietnam but the government there is corrupt and failing. The country stands on the brink of collapse when the TET offensive of 1968 occurs and Johnson is now president. Being more concerned with failure and saving face then how to exit this war and bring the troops home, Johnson is forced to escalate the war and enter in a never ending escalation spiral with no apparent way out.
      6. Nixon enters the oval office while I’m in Vietnam in 1969 and initiates his policy called the Vietnamization plan that puts pressure on the South Vietnamese to take on a greater portion of the war in their own defense. He does this so that eventually, he can bring the troops home.
      7. I returned home with the 1st Div. in 1970 as part of that redeployment. Saigon fails in 1975 and the world never came to an end as predicted.
      Each president had the opportunity to back away from the war in S.E. Asia and each gambled that it would not escalate during their tenure. Johnson gambled too and lost. Each in some way gained from this war either through appropriations or military contracts leading to political contributions and each is responsible letting fear and paranoia dictate ocver logic and common sense. Had Vietnam been granted independence at the end of WW II by Churchill and Truman while Ho Chi Minh was an ally, we never would have had to fight a war there. Johnson may have had shipping interests but other politicians were also involved and none were angelic. Johnson’s misfortune was that all hell broke lose on his watch. That same fear persists today and is currently driving the wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan. There is little incecnticve to end it either with a strong military industrial complex lobbying heavily, along with Exxon/Mobile that kick started this whole thing back in Iraq over oil. We knew where Bin Laden was for 5 years in Pakistan and let him sit to keep the war alive and only now was he captured because Obama saw a political opportunity with an upcomming election in 2012 to capture the s.o.b. to put political points on the scoreborad for the Democrats.
      Truman and Churchill are originally responsible for partitioning off the middle east after WW II because of the huge oil deposits there resulting in pissing off the local natives. It took this long and Bin Ladens money to get the terrorist movement organized, financed, and up and running. Clinton once had the s.o.b. but let him go. So you see , it was not Johnson alone with ulterior motives.

    • http://warrenrosenbaum.info Warren the Wordsmith

      Most of this is generally correct but one error must be addressed, it was the Gulf of Tonkin incident on August 2, 1964, that Johnson used as a reason to escalate the Viet Nam war, not the TET offensive. Johnson was about done by the TET Offensive with Nixon taking over in January, 1969.

      I have some reservations about keeping the war going to increase politicians bank accounts; that is a little too trite and the typical belief of shallow thinking citizens who like to jump on that kind of bandwagon.

      Social Security was always in a separate fund. It always had a surplus. The government kept borrowing money from the SS fund, and gave them IOU’s. Bill Clinton comes along, and takes the SS fund and adds it to the general fund. How do you think Clinton balanced his budget? Of course the Libtards like to say they left GW Bush a balanced budget and he blew it. Pure BS. Since then, we get our SS checks from the general fund. That is Liberalism for you.

      According to Devvy Kidd, “Hiding in a state of denial isn’t going to change a lie into truth. People don’t want their comfort zone disturbed because sadly, most Americans would rather continue to live on their knees, blindly doing whatever they’re told, because to stand up to tyranny is too much effort and requires courage. Sadly, America’s manhood has been transformed into something more closely resembling sissy hood.

      Why does the government have to “find” money to meet social security payments if there’s a so-called “trust fund”?

      The simple answer to this question is that there isn’t any trust fund and there never has been. When a worker voluntarily applies for this number and authorizes their employer to withhold this tax, that amount is simply credited to an individual account: a bookkeeping entry. This so called trust fund is just bookkeeping. Over the decades, Congress has simply played the shell game with moving around ink.

      As a tax, this revenue is used by the government to fund various unconstitutional expenditures like prophylactics for Pakistan, payments to the communist UN, the Federal Department of Education, building schools in Bosnia or paying farmers not to plant. This is probably the one, single legal fact that most people simply don’t understand: social security is a tax and is used by slick, career politicians to keep “old people” in line by clever manipulation to get their vote. It’s despicable and yet, our senior population continues to vote for the same cretins that cheat them, election after election.

      Because these taxes are funding this socialist operation called the federal government, the monthly out payment to social security recipients doesn’t come from some big vault full of money labeled ‘SS Trust Fund’ that the government writes checks against. The government robs Peter to pay about 43 million Paul’s, a pittance each month. Because there is no money in the U.S. Treasury, it simply becomes more debt for future generations. ”

      Without dedicated budgets for anything, double dipping will continue by Congress. You can only spend the money once at home but Congress does not see this the same way. Made up almost entirely of millionaires, they have never had to budget for anything and see us only as their personal ATM machine running what amounts to as a legalized Ponzi scheme. Wake up America. Time to replace Congress. They need to have term limits and maximum number of successive terms. Doing the same thing over and over expecting different results is the definition of insanity.

      Congress has borrowed from this supposedly dedicated fund, and does anyone know what the money was used for, or if they paid any of it back?

    Were a Constitution country not a communist country in case you genuine patriots forgot. And as for immigrants go you can’t expect most of them to know the constitution which we as Americans grew up with. Ever wonder why the government floods our country with immigrants so they can take away our god given rights as free Americans. So with that said IMMPEACH THE COMMUNIST BUM!

    • Charles D. Carter, RA

      Unless you are a native born American Indian, you come from immigrant stock. It is the entreprenuer in each of our forefathers that made this country what it is today. When the Pilgrims landed, most were soldiers of fortune. None were carpenters, lawyers, teachers, or farmers. This had to come later. There was no built society to conquer. They lived in mud huts and many starved. Without Indian help, most all would have died.
      Immigrants of old were “naturalized”, when they arrived here to become citizens. They fought in several great wars, started up our industtry, and led the way in technology without regard for race, creed, or religion. It is the illegal immigrants that big business likes to use to break unions, and, to pay out unlimited welfare to buy poor votes. This is how we got an affirmative action president. While liberals may appear to be the problem, corporate welfare has also long played a role in depleting our budget. Large corporations that pay less in taxes than you or I, offshore plants that sock away untaxable profit money in offshore banks, and an outsourcing of American jobs all contribute to eroding our economy. Domestic jobs will help restart the economy since they are the ones that pay most taxes, buy high priced items like housing and motor vehicles, and they are the onse who start small businesses which are the real financial backbone of America. Until we fix the imbalance of trade, stop fighting wars for corporate interests, and make government truly accountable, it ain’t gonna change folks.

      You are right..to a certain extent– but the Spaniards and the Englishman arrived in N & S America as “Conquistadores;” not as Inmigrants…true, later on thousands of inmigrants came to both N&S America, but they arrived mostly legally. I am a Cuban-American & arrived as one of the original refugees in ’62, with a visa waiver..legally!!
      And besides, even the Native Indians were inmigrants…the law is the law– & all countries have Inmigration Laws that must be respected…Illegals must do what legal inmigrants do: ASK FOR PERMISSION to enter the greatest and best country in the world: USA.

    Hope he does and then let the low down socialist see what we seniors will do to him. Go to you tube and watch video “Marxism in America.” This retired general tells it like it is. Obama and his followers or advisers are destroying every freedom in America we have. They are bound and determined to make us into a third world country with a dictatorship. We have closed our eyes and minds far too long to allow this man and Congress to do this. We need to start protesting loudly to Obama and every Congressman in Washington.

  • Out Of Work

    Does that idiot have any idea what THAT would do to the economy? People who paid in all their lives who are now on fixed income not being able to pay rent/mtgs, car payments, or buy food, gas, pay ins. premiums, etc. Not only would if affect the soc.sec. recipients, it would affect all those people and services they pay for each month. He is such a JERK he doesn’t even understand Econ 100. And, who the hell is HE to make that decision after his wife and family just spent $800,000 of taxpayer money on a vacation? He’s a bully who tries to use thuggery and scare tactics….the b*****d.

    For those of you who are not aware,the social security trust fund is full of IOU’S.Our trusted elected officials have robbed the money to bail out failed programs in the past, thinking that we were too dumb to catch on. They were in hopes that somehow a surplus would occur at some point and they could “sneak” the money back into the trust fund without us knowing the money was missing. What a neat “Ponzi scheam”.

  • Captain PJ

    Obama is either playing chicken or he’s outright bluffing. He’s so committed to tax hikes that he’s willing to drive over a political cliff to get them. Unwilling to compromise on spending and unwilling to cut his beloved stimulus to pay our creditors, President Obama is threatening to prevent Social Security checks from going out on 3 August. “There may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it,” Obama said. And, that wasn’t it, Obama continued, “This is not just a matter of Social Security checks. These are veterans’ checks, these are folks on disability and their checks. There are about 70 million checks that go out.” First, that statistic tells us that something is wrong with the country. There are a grand total of 300 million people in the country, right?

    If each person receives one check, that means that nearly a quarter of the American population is being paid by the government, which means they’re being paid by fellow taxpayers. And yet Democrats think that statistic isn’t high enough–they want to spend more to up both the size and scope of those checks. More importantly, however, Obama’s statements that he may have to stop Social Security, veterans’ and disbility checks shows just how bankrupt the country is. If we literally don’t have the cash to pay those checks out of our current stockpiles, how is borrowing more money going to cure the problem?

    • Captain PJ

      There’s another problem for Obama, too. By tacitly admitting that government benefit schemes are month-to-month, he’s admitting that the underlying structure of these systems is not self-sustaining–like Democrats kept telling us. Now that’s a major shift for a man who, in August 2010, proclaimed, “Social Security is not in crisis…We’re going to have to make some modest adjustments in order to strengthen it.” More than modest adjustments are in order (Mr. President) id Social Security recipients are one congressional vote from going without their checks.

      Seniors should also realize at this point that the GROWTH of government has bankrupted them. The money they gave the government over the course of their lives to be put in some mythical lockbox somewhere, some misnamed “trust fund,” is GONE. That magical “trust fund” is nothing of the kind–it is a financial structure full of IOUs. The cash was raided long ago, distributed to ther seniors, other unemployed people, other government dependants. America’s benfits system is no longer self-funded. IT IS CHINA FUNDED.

    • Captain PJ

      Our esteemed commander-in-chief has now embraced a binary choice: He can screw either current taxpayers or he can screw past taxpayers. Those who depend on their Social Security check to pay the rent are now being asked to suffer a double burden. The burden of paying their original Social Security tax as well as the burden of forgoing their expected return. The alternative is asking those who currently pay taxes to suffer a double burden: paying a higher tax rate and then forgoing their check somewhere dwon the road. Of, of course, President Obama can elide the choice altogether by placing the burden on future generations.

      Obama would like to choose a third option–nut those dastardly Republicans are stopping him from dumping fiscal insolvency on our children and grandchildren. Unwilling to fundamentally rethink his governmental approach, Obama has now been forced into this game of Liar’s Bluff. And he has made his choice: SENIORS, WHO ARE MORE CONSERVATIVE THAN YOUNGER VOTERS AND WHO DONATE LESS MONEY TO POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS, WILL PAY THE PRICE!

      Another problem for Obama: those seniors have children and grandchildren–and we don’t like to see our grandparents paying the price for President Obama’s fiscal irresponibility. The answer is simple: Cut government and pay what is owed, both to our foreign creditors and to those citizens who PIAD INTO THE SYSTEM–and free Americans to pursue their own business in the process.

    I have gotten singles for two twenties about to start writing a message for Obama. If you missed my earlier post it is imperative everyone start writing impeach Obama on your currency spread the word to everyone you know!!!

    • Daphney

      I think Obama should be impeached! he is only concerned about his next election. Shame on him threating to stop checks because he can not have his way.Hope the American people will see him for who he really is. He has no concern for people if he is willing to cut checks off without studying the the chaos it will bring to many. He should have taken that 30 day temporary deal at least it would have look like he had some concern. Vote Him Out!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Because he is not fit to be a King.
      Vote Him Out Next Election!!!!!!!!!

  • Captain PJ

    Paying their fair share is the president’s phrase for wealth redistribution. What Obama really means is that entrepreneurs and other successful business owners are not paying high enough taxes, and that all of the money they earn should be “contributed” to the government for wealth redistribution to those that Obama considers worthy.

    Of course, Obama supporters, the bulk of whom do not seem to pay income tax, are, according to this definition, already paying a fair amount of tax (ZERO). It is the rest of America that is not paying their “fair share.” Obama offers no criteria to what is fair or not, so that is why he seems to think it is perfectly acceptable to require 20% of Americans to pay 78% of the taxes and then criticize them for not paying their “fair share.”

    • Captain PJ

      Working people is invoked by Obama to demonstrate commitment to average Americans. Of course, what Obama really means is that he supports the primacy of UNIONS over other American workers. According to Obama’s definition, the vast majority of Americans, including small businesses owners (like me), are not working people at all, regardless of how many thousands of hours they work. In Obama’s dictionary, only UNION members are working peopla and deserving of special preferences and consideration.

  • Captain PJ

    Do you all know that Obama abruptly stormed out of his White House Debt-ceiling meeting this afternoon, saying, “I’ve reached my limit. This may bring my presidency down, but I won’t yield on this!”

    • Olesarge

      He storm out because he could not handle the truth. And he has no concern for the American people. As far as i am concern he presidents the was hurt when he did not defend DOMA.

    If the social security checks don’t go out because obama is using seniors shields, so he can blame republicans, he has another thing coming. why don’t we ask that he does not get his fat check either.
    The social security withholding by obama is a scare tactic. Let him do it. He will have all the senior citizens raging. We need to have the Republicans published a list of Who is getting paid, if the SS checks do not go out. He will have a hard time giving money to those who should not be paid any money, like planned parenthood, acorn or any organization linked to it, public radio, and others. We need to see who is getting paid. Send emails and/or calls to the republicans in office.

  • MistyinGa

    I believe this is simply a hollow threat by a desperate man. Have you all forgotten that democrats get social security as well? I do not believe for one minute that Barack Obama would actually follow through because he would lose to much support from his base. Not to mention that it really would cause civil unrest. One thing I know for sure is ,you are supposed to respect your elders not cause them to lose sleep at night worrying that they may lose what for many is their only source of income .What kind of evil have we allowed into our whitehouse?

    • Captain PJ

      SENIORS, WHO ARE MORE CONSERVATIVE THAN YOUNGER VOTERS AND WHO DONATE LESS MONEY TO POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS, WILL PAY THE PRICE!

      Don’t forget that at one time, at the hands of the Left, the top tax income rate was higher than 90% or that it was 70% before the Reagan cuts. Indeed, it’s ironic that leftists like Obama depict conservatives as hyperbolic and extreme for sometimes using the terms “socialist” and “Marxist” to describe Obama. They donlt offer a substantive defense against the claim, but use the same argument they offer against all charges about Obama’s radical behavior, namely that an elected president couldn’t possibly be a radical or a socialst and certainly couldn’t be a Marxist. No, it must be impossibe becuase that’s the stuff of spy novels.

    • Olesarge

      “What kind of evil have we allowed into our whitehouse?”

      One who couldn’t care less about anybody but himself.

  • Olesarge

    If Obama does hold to his threat I think that would be a major political mistake. There are a lot of Baby Boomer’s out there who are reaching the age to collect Social Security and their numbers are growing every day. Mix those with the Disabled Veterans from as far back as WWII and Korea up to the present Iraq and Afghan War and that could be a lot of upset voters. There are a lot of blacks among them. This could get them so mad they may get their revenge at the poles next year. I don’t think he can afford to risk that. He may be evil, devious, cunning and a lier but Stupid he is not. If he is bluffing, then for his sake he better remember the first rule of Poker. “If you bluff, be prepared to have your bluff called.”

Obama would like nothing better than to silence Fox.I am afraid we are in for a lot of trouble and this is just the beginning. The dems. will stop at nothing to get a complete take over if it means destroying the USA.

  • Deborah

    I am a retired social worker and I have seen first hand who is on SSDI. I would say professionally that at least 50% of the people who collect SSDI and who have never paid into the system are more than able to work. They get benefits because they are drug addicts or have supposed anxiety disorders or depression and claim they cannot work. But they can go to the beach everyday and hang out with their friends.
    I know of one man who inherited over 1/2 million dollars and put it in a special interest trust and continues on SSDI, medicare, section 8 and food stamps and also uses several thousand a month out of his trust fund. He is diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and claims he cannot work. So the people like me who have worked all out lives and paid into the system pay for scum like this.

  • Misty

    The jerk should be made to give up his own salary and all those expensive vacations he’s been taking since he went into office. We taxpayers have had to foot the bill for Obama and his brood. Now it’s time for him to make a few sacrifices. If he thinks cutting off government checks will balance things out then let him be the first to give up his salary.

  • cheryl

    I don’t know how this debt ceiling thing will turn out but there is one thing you can bet on. In August Obama will be spending millions on his vacation in the Hamptons. Some sacrifice.

  • James

    I hope that I understand this correctly. The federal government wants to borrow more monies in order to continue to service the national debt payments as it is most important that the United States does not default on it’s debt. This seems like a nobel prsentation until one thinks it through. Social Security deductions have always gone into the federal governments general accounting fund and then borrowed by the government with the promise to repay. Would it be too novel of an idea to tell the federal government too repay the debt that is owed to social security? I am not opposed to being fairly taxed but I am opposed to being cheated. The current administration is operating like a criminal enterprize with no one to in ant branch to say ‘that is enough’!
    There are so many politicians operating beyond the law we the people don’t stand much of a chance short of harsh lessons that may have to be taught to these legislative, judicial and executive branch types. I could sight examples that yeilded results from local to state levels but this is not the correct form. I say invest in heavy metals.
