Something To Ponder ...

This is from one of those forwarded emails that makes the rounds:

To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature,

It is now official you are ALL corrupt morons:

* The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775 You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.

* Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.

* Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.

* War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.

* Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.

* Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.

* The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.

You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??

I didn't know Obama had been in power for 70 years. Wow he must be old.

For years all of these systems have been broken, including health care. How much does the average 2 kid american family spend on health care a year. $20,000. The system is broken, yet all of the past admins have been afraid to even try to fix it because it is not politically popular(see what is happening now) Except now we have a president who is actually willing to do things, even if they are not in is political best interest, instead of sitting on his but.)

By the way systems like social security have saved millions of elderly americans from poverty. The reason the system is broken is because past admins have been afraid to adjust the system to keep up with the times because it was unpopular to do so.

We have a political system where it is easier to do nothing so you don't get yelled at in the media, so nothing gets done and the systems never get updated to adjust with the times. We finally have a president who actually wants to fix things regardless of whether he gets reelected or not and we vilify him?

I thought this was a liberal site? You're not supposed to post, comment or suggest anything bad about Obama.

To 6:39PM ~~ Perhaps you were too busy stereotyping (prejudging) to actually read or comprehend the messages.
