Budget cuts

So Obama deceives the people once again. He promised he would not cut Social Security and Medicare yet he submits his budget to lawmakers and he calls for moderate cuts to both Social Security and Medicare and no cuts to his uncontrolled spending. The seniors in this country have been abused long enough. Under Obama illegal aliens are treated better than the seniors that have contributed so much. Seniors, call your senators and congressmen to stop this.

Life of luxury

Wow, President Obama is offering to take a 5 percent pay cut. For the past four years he has been living a lifestyle of a person earning $200 million a year. So why doesn’t he just give back his entire salary? That would not affect his current lifestyle in the least. He, however, has no intentions of stopping his luxurious weekly parties as well as his unnecessary and numerous luxurious vacations and all his other fun times we pay for. Gee, what a sport, and what a hypocrite.

Sign up

Our founding fathers didn’t expect everyone needed a weapon except if attacked by a foreign country. They set up the Army, Navy, Marines and the National Guard to protect us at home when needed. Everyone does not need an assault weapon or multiple weapons. If you are itching to do so, join these forces, get trained, employed and get your health care and we won’t have to worry about you, hopefully.
