Entitled To Entitlements? What A Joke.

I paid cash for my social security insurance. Just because our out-of-control government borrowed and never repaid the money, it doesn't make my social security some kind of charity or handout. But that could describe Congressional benefits; free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days. Now those are handouts. And they have the nerve to call my retirement entitlements.


A local newspaper, ran two articles on the front page, side by side:

1- Calif 's 20 Billion Dollar Budget Deficit

2- The Calif Supreme Court ruling that ILLEGALS can attend college and get benefits.

Why don't they just deport them when they arrive to register?

3- Last year they ran an article on the yearly costs to California Taxpayers from Illegals using Hospital Emergency Rooms for their general health care.

At just one hospital alone the cost to tax payers totaled over 25 million a year

Someone please tell me what the HELL'S wrong with the people that run this country?

We're "broke" and can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, and Homeless, but we can give billions away to other countries.
In the last months we have provided weapons to Iran, aid to Iran, Afghanistan, Kenya, and on and on. Obama literally gave away BILLIONS of DOLLARS in cash and weapons! Yet no one tries to stop him. Why?

Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' (usually $800-$1,200 a month) receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour Hundreds of Billions of dollars and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries! And the amount of taxpayer dollars they give to foreign student’s to educate the little darlings is staggering. Again, why? Why educate foreign students instead of our own?

They call Social Security and Medicare entitlements even though most of us have been paying for them all our working lives and now when it's time for us to collect, the government has spent our money. Why did the government borrow it in the first place? Were they overspending even in the beginning?

We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans. Why?

AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed' meds, and mentally ill without treatment, YET they have a 'Benefit' for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations, ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.

Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.

Sad isn't it?
