CONGRESSMEN AREN’T PAID ENOUGH? What About Our Troops?

The other day, Alcee Hastings Democrat from Florida said members of Congress need a raise in pay. The average congressional salary is $174,000 for what is mostly a part time job. I say let them flip burgers to supplement their salaries, oh wait, there are no burger jobs or many jobs at all for that matter.

Yet Alcee thinks they deserve to be paid more. My attitude is this, take your career political fat butt, get on a plane, fly coach to some hell hole where our service members are trying to survive to pay for your huge salaries, squat over a dug latrine and thank almighty God you still have morons who vote for you.
 
The Clintons are the financial equivalent to the TV. show Hoarders, maybe they just need a raise?

The national debt just hit $18 trillion. That and a congressional pay raise should keep free people yoked to the government for a bit longer.

Yesterday Obama, just before Memorial Day weekend, released 2,300 new regulations. Those are rules in case you were wondering. I believe that’s the third time he’s introduced new rules just before a holiday in the land of
the free.

In Baltimore, The Red Terror, a communist group calls for death for the middle class. Red Terror is the communist campaign of mass killing. Torture and oppression to bring about a socialist system. They advocate killing off the middle class. Too late, the Democrats have almost finished the job.

According to Infowars, while attacking Alex Jones a female communist screamed, “I have armpit hair, I kill my children, I f*cking love Satan, I f*cking love Satan, so f*ck you!”

This on the streets of America.

At Union Square, a black militant group called Five Percent Nation (with 2% of the brains), an offshoot of Islam, were commanding whites to bow down to them on the street.

This is what our brave men and women are fighting for?

The National Review wrote recently that most Democrats and 37% of Republicans want to repeal the first amendment and they support criminalizing “hate speech.” A little coincidental don’t you think after Pam Geller’s Draw Mohammed event in Texas ended in a shooting? Why Bill O’Reilly and Great Van Sustern both blamed Pamela for the violence, saying she held the event just to provoke Muslims. These have got to be, aside from
politicians, the dumbest people on the planet and I believe their free speech rights should be revoked immediately.

What these pinheads don’t understand is that it doesn’t matter why she held the event, the right to free speech carries the assumption you are free to speak without getting murdered. And by the way, YAY, Pam! Our brave soldiers died to preserve that right. And what a kick in the head when people like O’Reilly, Sustern and others blame an American for exercising that right.

The mom of an Honor Roll student was arrested and shackled because her son missed more days than the school allowed. Allowed? Several other parents have been jailed this year because it’s important that children be in school. Mom now has a criminal record because she didn’t have a doctor’s note. Does anyone remember the mom who was arrested for her truant child and died in custody because she couldn’t make bail?

A teacher in Illinois decided to stomp on an American flag after a student objected to his using the flag as a pointer. The teacher, because he didn’t like what the student had to say, threw the flag on the floor and stomped on it. The children protested which angered the teacher even more. The teacher claimed he had the “right” to do whatever he wanted, that’s why the flag was there. And parents are arrested?

The people who fought and died for that flag might have something else to say about that. The flag wasn’t there to be disrespected, it was there to remind people in that classroom of the hard won battles fought by people better than that teacher and more worthy of respect. The kids in that room knew that and that gives us some hope for the future of this country.

 The Second Circuit Court ruled that New York state government has the right to ban “Choose-Life” license plates on the grounds the statement choose life is “patently offensive.” The judge, a Clinton appointee no less, said the DMV had the right to suppress this example of free speech.

What I find “patently offensive” are the phrases climate change, gender gap, level the playing field and Income inequality to name a few. Hollow words, words of our captors, weaklings. What I find offensive is Obama calling our good men and women of the armed forces “bumps in the road.”

Our veterans are committing suicide at the rate of 22 a day, that’s what I find patently offensive. They and their families deserve $174,000 a year because they are what keep this country going, they are the ones on the front lines and who continue to fight on no matter what we throw at them. They come home to selfish and greedy politicians whose only need for them is a photo op and animals who want to kill us just for opening our mouths. And never a complaint.

They fight for the things the Left and some on the Right are doing their best to abolish. We owe everything to these men and women. They are the reason I am still free to write John Chapter 10: 14-17:

14 I am the good shepherd,and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it again.
 
Happy Memorial Day, thank a vet.
