Sorry. I don't like golf, so don't imagine me golfing. I won't be on the golf course today - or anytime soon. Oh! Did you intend to say that YOU would be golfing?

I didn't know Temecula even had a golf course. Who will you be caddying for today? Anybody we know? Bwaaahahahahaa. Who cares?

How the tea party undermines conservatism
http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/michae...
By Michael Gerson, Published: January 6
One of the main problems with an unremittingly hostile view of government — held by many associated with the tea party, libertarianism and “constitutionalism”— is that it obscures and undermines the social contributions of a truly conservative vision of government.
Politics requires a guiding principle of public action. For popular liberalism, it is often the rule of good intentions: If it sounds good, do it. Social problems can be solved by compassionate, efficient regulation and bureaucratic management — which is seldom efficient and invites unintended consequences in complex, unmanageable systems (say, the one-sixth of the U.S. economy devoted to health care). The signal light for government intervention is stuck on green.
For libertarians and their ideological relatives, the guiding principle is the maximization of individual liberty. It is a theory of government consisting mainly of limits and boundaries. The light is almost always red.
Conservatism (as Peter Wehner and I explain in our recent National Affairs essay,“A Conservative Vision of Government”) offers a different principle of public action — though one a bit more difficult to explain than “go” or “stop.” In the traditional conservative view, individual liberty is ennobled and ordered within social institutions — families, religious communities, neighborhoods, voluntary associations, local governments and nations. The success of individuals is tied to the health of these institutions, which prepare people for the responsible exercise of freedom and the duties of citizenship.(cont.)
..........
When local governments FAIL, all that is left to ensure the health required for individual efforts to SUCCEED is what? I contend it is National standards and requirements (Constitutional guarantees) that we turn to to right the wrongs. JMO
That is true that the TEA Party does undermine Conservatism because they have all proven to be a bunch of Radical Liberals from the Old Left that are not willing to give up Liberalism either especially Social Security and other Liberal Social Programs provided by the Federal Government besides the Liberals on the SCOTUS confirmed there is no rights especially to Social Security since it is a spending program funded by taxes.

Social Security’s Sham Guarantee

By Michael D. Tanner

May 29, 2005

How many times during the recent debate over Social Security reform have you heard someone refer to Social Security’s “guaranteed benefit”? The AARP says “Social Security is the guaranteed part of your retirement plan.” Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leader in the House, touts the system’s “guaranteed retirement benefit.” The liberal activist group ProtectYourCheck.org , headed by former Clinton chief of staff Harold Ickes, is running ads calling Social Security “a guarantee you earned.”

But Social Security benefits are not guaranteed.

They are not guaranteed legally because workers have no contractual or property rights to any benefits whatsoever. In two landmark cases, Flemming v. Nestor and Helvering v. Davis, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Social Security taxes are not contributions or savings, but simply taxes, and that Social Security benefits are simply a government spending program, no different than, say, farm price supports. Congress and the president may change, reduce, or even eliminate benefits at any time.

Are you retired? Near retirement? Oblivious about the future? I don't get it. I posted an excellent article just yesterday that describes what the serious concerns are, but you either didn't read or consider it, or else you're still in denial or have a trust fund. Hard to say.

The clear concern is that while private pensions are going the way of the dodo bird for many American workers, state and local government pensions are being cut and Social Security is under attack, while secure investments for interest income have almost NO return, some of you want to eliminate a program that is self-funded. That would be in favor of what, exactly? Should workers who cannot afford to invest in the first place be expected to gamble with old age security by some unfathomable stock market investment they have no disposable income to acquire in the first place?

Kindly explain to me how the millions of Americans who can ONLY find minimum wage or low wage jobs support themselves in retirement if they're struggling to do that now? Keep in mind that we absolutely don't have enough jobs that require college degrees that if everybody who was capable went to college and obtained a degree, we would do anything at all other than lower the value of a degree and the salaries of those jobs as well. Soon, the glut of work force would tank the next rung (middle class) of income earners.

The policy you seem to be advocating guarantees more misery in America, and I just don't get it. Straighten me out as to how you see these policies you embrace as helping America keep her promise to her citizens.

Your perspective perplexes me. What do you want to do about the increasing numbers of Americans who will likely ONLY have Social Security pensions in old age? I'm already set, but I'm very concerned for my children and theirs.

<quoted text>You're one stupid dude. You have no real concept of anybody's net worth or how much they have paid in taxes. Retirees usually have less tax obligation than when they were income earners. Why are YOU here so often if you're a gainfully employed taxpaying American?
No progress? It still needs to be done:
Congressional Reform Act of 2012
As a citizen of the United States, I find the actions of career lawmakers reprehensible. I believe in the vision of our founding fathers in creating citizen legislatures. I am asking you to hold our leaders past, present, and future to the same rules and limits that every citizen must follow. While I understand that this causes a hardship on you and your envisioned career, I am only asking you to be the leaders we elected you to be and make hard decisions that benefit our country and the people you represent.
Congressional Reform Act of 2012:
1. Term Limits.
12 years only, one of the possible options below:
A. Two Six-year Senate terms
B. Six Two-year House terms
C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms
2. No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.
3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people.
4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective the day this is signed into law.
The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.
Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

You have a very active imagination. That's probably a good thing because the closest you've ever been to a woman like me is when you worked as a shoe salesman and slipped a pair of relatively expensive leather pumps on my well manicured and sweet smelling feet. You made me shudder then, and you make me nauseous now. Your greatest accomplishment was to booze up a drunkard, impregnate her, and spawn a child she wanted nothing to do with from the moment of birth.

Trees? There's a few of those outside my windows as well. LOLOL. Your "pad" must lack much that you would be here attacking me with your vulgarities, lies and insults instead of wooing a real live woman (or man ). You must need a shower. Hurry it up, Stan. You don't want to be late. You need the income.
