My name is d'Lynn. I'm a disabledVietnam vet. I don't look too bad for a beat-up old fart, do I? And that's my ride. She's pretty good looking also, especially when you consider that she'll turn twenty this summer. That's right, it's a 1990 with a 1990 sidecar. I can't ride a solo bike, ergo the sidecar rig. It's my sole means of transportation - rain or shine, snow or wind, and this summer also marks a milestone in both of our lives, as I will finally be able to pay her off. Twenty years old? What? Why did it take so long? You weren't paying attention, were you? It's right at the beginning of this paragraph. I am a disabled vet, which means I receive a veterans administration disability pension, which also means "I'm broke!" Just one step ahead of being homeless every month, and that's not an idle statement nor an 'Oh whoa is me"' complaint. There’'s a point to this, so hang in there a minute or two and read on.

There's a 25-year-old illegal immigrant woman living in Florida , with eight kids. Yes, eight "anchor babies" and she receives just shy of $1,500 per month per kid, plus medical, plus food stamps. Oh, wait. I've been informed that I shouldn't call them Food Stamps anymore. That's not PC. It's all called “'Social Assistance”' now. You do the math on that yourself. I'd say that she was schooled early in how to make it in the 'system'. Twenty-five years old, eight kids . . . . . yep, she started early.

You can whip out the calculator if you want, but this women who never has paid a dime in taxes of any kind, (and still doesn't, –she's 'illegal', remember?) is here in this country illegally. She hasn'’t paid one cent in medical for all the “anchor babies,” makes more in one month, legally, than I receive in over a year and a half in disability payments and I can't even get food stamps! Oops, I mean “'Social Assistance'.”

Technically, I am eligible for “'Social Assistance'.” I was told it would be a walk through – a gimme being disabled. No problem, and in the very next breath I was also informed that under the law the amount I received in “'Social Assistance'” would be deducted from my disability pension.

Let's say I take a great photograph. It was just luck, a one of a kind accident, in the right place at the right time shot. My local newspaper offers me fifty bucks to use the photo in a featured story. (I live in a small town and fifty bucks is all they could afford.) I have to report that fifty dollars to the VA as earned income, which will immediately be deducted from my next month’s disability check. If I don't report it I'’m in violation of federal law and technically they can stop my disability pension and prosecute me under a federal felony. Pretty cool, eh? For fifty bucks!

I see no point in dealing with two federal bureaucracies, so I don't bother. What's the point?

She's here illegally and with just one kid would make over twice what I receive per month. She has eight and she’s not a stand-out case. She’'s not alone. That's the way the system works. Millions of illegal immigrants know this, know how the system works and know how to use it. (Haven't you seen the pamphlet? It's handed out all along our borders, "The Illegal Immigrants' Guide to Keeping America Just The Way It Is.") and that's just the way it works.

Did you know that the federal government provides a “refugee” in this country with a monthly “stipend” of $1,890, plus $580 a month in “Social Assistance?” That’s $2,470 a month, tax-free. That's two and a half times what I'’m allowed to receive as a disabled vet. And just what did they do to earn this? All you have to do is show up on our collective doorstep, raise your right hand and swear that you're a refugee and, bingo, receive $30,000 a year, tax-free. That's more than someone making $15 an hour, and they have to pay taxes to boot!

Now, in defense of the Veterans Administration, they are doing what they can with what they've got. This is precious little compared to what they should have to get the job done. At least this country has a VA. It's the Senate that keeps passing laws, rules and guidelines, cutting their budget, denying requests for more staff and computer systems to handle the massive work flow. Their hands are tied by the very government that's supposed to give them what they need to get the job done, by the government you voted into office. Don't scream at the VA. I have. It's misguided anger.

The point to this “story?” Just why are you paying such high taxes to support this incredibly screwed-up government? Why? And I'’m not proposing you stop paying your taxes. That's wrong. There are good programs and reasons to pay your taxes and support our government. What am I proposing? It's quite simple. Vote.

The government, our government, is broken and we as the voters serve as the maintenance crew. We fix it . . . . . by voting.

If your state Senator has been in office more then two terms, vote 'em out at the next election. If your state representative has been in office more then two terms, vote 'em out of office. We put term limits on just about every publicly-elected official in the country except the House and Senate. Why? Believe me, they know this and love it! Ahhh - the power!

I don't care how much you believe your Senator or Representative is doing a good job. They're not! Look at the government you have, that we have. How can you state they are doing what you want as the voter that put them there? How?

Vote them out of office. Do it.

Change the course of this country's history by what you are granted and guaranteed under the law. Vote! And if you have the guts, the anger, the outrage, start a petition in your state for a state-wide initiative to be placed on your next state ballot. Limiting the terms of office for your state senators and state representatives to your federal government to two terms.
The federal government will never pass such a law, but you can. You can get it done. You can force it. You can make it a law.

WOW. and you thought our gov't was f'd up before you read this. Im almost to the point now when I read stuff like this it doesnt really make me that mad, I mean yes I am mad that this is happening but shit, what can I do but vote in November? The only real way to get anything done as far as voting goes is to make people take a test before they can vote. Some sort of candidate test to make sure you atleast you know who the hell is running in the elections. Nothing hard just some questions about about the elects. OH NO that will violate rights.....BS it will make people smarter at the polls and we wont have a fucked up election like '08.

Those words seem very hollow, after reading this post. As Father Mulcahy used to say, "I am acrimonious!!" My Congress people are getting a copy ASAP.

Yep this is a problem we made.. What happened when we lost our mind on this thing..Helping people is right, but if you don't set limits it just gets worse and worse..

If your a HS drop out kids are your meal ticked.. We all know that if we announced tomorrow that from X date further we would only pay for one baby, the pregnancy rate would drop immediately.

We cut back on the charities when the economy turned upside down.. Sad but true..Gloria keeps one going out every month tho.. The disabled vets.. Our philosophy is that st Jude's and all the ones that advertise will continue to be supported..The little ones wont..

That sounds a little like back patting.. sorry i know you guys all give of yourselves in way a lot more than sending a little check out.. Ivan (Bud) actually takes time and visits vets homes.. hauls them around.. That's giving..

THANKS for

pissing me off further...what is wrong with the country? Someone asked on a different post...what can we do? Well, with stories like this, you need to verify it, the forward it on to you congressman, local newspapers, local radio stations, local TV stations...we need to shine the light on things like this.

you don't get to decide what your nickname is,we do,ask snaks,now onto this post,FUCK,okay now i'm calm,this is definately not doing the will of the people IMO,this is doing the will of the sheeple,as long as sheeple are concerned with how many anchor babies to have,gov.health care,free this and that(sucking on the gov.tit),more knowledge of how to fuck the system(i mean milk,fuck i gotta stay on point here),well when the sheeple learn to milk the system,then they can concern themselves with movie stars,reality shows,sports scores,and designer tags.

reduce federal government,vote out incumbents,move the power back to state governments,lets see them sink or swim,Illinois is fucked right now.that's it,gotta go clean my guns now,again,reminds me of that Patriot riders post in Virginia,coalminers funerals,we really need to impeach Obama,fuck it,i'm polishing the bullets too.
