I don't think TICKED OFF really covers it!!!!
Alan Simpson, Senator from Wyoming and co-chair of President Obama's deficit commission, calls senior citizens the "Greediest Generation" as he compared Social Security to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.
Here's a response in a letter from Patty Myers, a career school teacher in Montana ... I think she is a little ticked off! She also tells it like it is!

"Hey Alan, let's get a few things straight!!!!!
by Patty Myers

1.   As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for FIFTY YEARS.
2.  I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).
3.  My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud.
4.  Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and "your ilk" pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 toage 67. NOW, you and your "shill commission" are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.
5.  I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now "you morons" propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because "you idiots" mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.
6.  I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again.  Why? Because you "incompetent bastards" spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.
To add insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for calling "bullcrap" to your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullcrap, I have a few questions for YOU:
1.  How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?
2.  At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?
3.  How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?
4.  What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?
It is you, Captain Bullcrap, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the "greedy" ones. It is you and your fellow nutcase thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.
And for what? Votes and your job and retirement security at our expense, you lunk-headed leech. That's right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic, political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.  And you can take that to the bank, you miserable ******.
NO, I did not stutter.
 P.S.  And stop calling Social Security benefits "entitlements" !!
I have been paying in to the SS system for 45 years. It's my money; give it back to me the way the system was designed and stop patting yourself on the back like you are being generous to be doling out these monthly checks!!!

  Thank you, Patty Myers!!! You make perfect sense --- and I am mad as HELL over the corruption of our "esteemed leaders"....There are MANY Captain Bullcraps..!!
With your wrath unleashed in this letter, you let the scoundrels know that Americans are not fooled by the greedy members of Congress who are the ones who have conspired to bankrupt our country. BTW, Patty Myers, your response to Alan Simpson---- earns a grade of A+ and a Gold Star! Thank you so much!

    I hope she sent this to Alan Simpson, Senator from Wyoming and co-chair of President Obama's deficit commission and all of the other senators. They deserve a good kick in the rump.

  and she missed the biggest drinkers of governmental largess, the oil companies and the insurance companies. the benefits they get would just about eliminate the debt, with a little from the defence contractors added in.
