                                   I REPORT, YOU DECIDE.
                                         The Buffet Rule

Salary of retired US Presidents . . . . . . . . . .. . $180,000 FOR LIFE
Salary of House/Senate members . . . . . . . . $174,000 FOR LIFE
Salary of Speaker of the House . . . . . . . . . . $223,500 FOR LIFE
This is really stupid
Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders . . . . . . . . $193,400 FOR LIFE
Ditto last line
Average Salary of a teacher . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. $40,065
Average Salary of a deployed Soldier . . . . . .. . $38,000
I think we found where the cuts should be made! If you agree pass it
on, I just did.
Warren Buffet, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best
quotes about the debt ceiling:
"I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC. "You just pass a
law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP,
all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took
only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people
demanded it. That was in 1971 - before computers, e-mail, cell phones,
Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took one (1) year
or less to become the law of the land - all because of public
Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a
minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of
those to do likewise.
In three days, most people in The United States of America will have
the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.
Congressional Reform Act of 2014

1. No Tenure / No Pension.

A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no
pay when they're out of office.

2. 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.
It may not be used for any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional
pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in
the same health care system as the American people.

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void
effective 12/1/14. The American people did not make this contract with

Congress 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.

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only
take three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive the message.
Don't you think it's time?


If you agree, pass it on. If not, delete.

You are one of my 20+ - Please keep it going, and thanks

My Hibiscus being protected from the winter

I bought two 10 gallon variegated pink/green/white leafed Red Hibiscus, small enough to bring in over the winter. Two years later I repotted them in light-weight large decorative containers and they became huge. Still bringing them in, fourth year now as they are just spectacular in bloom late every summer. Even had some blooming since I brought them indoors. It snowed again last night.

Monsanto about to release their GMO corn, Satan responds

Dear Friends at Monsanto,
I am pleased by the dominion your company has secured over planetary agriculture. Your recent courtroom triumph over small, organic farmers is a good start to extinguish the hopes of people in their quest for healthy sustenance. The organic activists will not back down easily, so I advise you to stamp out efforts of those who seek to label foods that contained genetically modified organisms (GMO), for this will slow your ascent to the top of world’s financial markets.
I have been a fan or your creations ever since you delivered the science and components for the A-Bomb and Agent Orange. Your Roundup herbicide (Glyphosate), combined with your numerous patented and genetically engineered (GE) seed creations, will make humans and their livestock weakened and infertile for generations. The greed that drives your company to experiment on the natural world has made you an enemy of the people, but a friend to all of us in power.
You are changing the face of creation in short order, the likes which have not been witnessed since the beginning of time. You have helped satisfy the excessive demand for soybeans and corn to produce livestock feed, processed foods and ethanol, resulting in an accelerated destruction of life giving top soil on the Great Plains of the US. If humanity woke up and saw the chemical soup you are feeding them, and the pollution in their air, water and soil, they could not stop the coming tide of tears.
You have altered HIS PLAN of natural selection by adapting soy, corn, sugar beets, cotton, rice, canola, sugar beets, and alfalfa with the insertion of foreign genes that enable weed and insect resistance. Products like your impressive Genuity® SmartstaxTM corn with eight added genetic traits, have helped bring on the recent and rapid demise of vulnerable pollinators like bats, birds, butterflies and bees. Your numerous (GE) seed crops and arsenal of associated crop chemicals have created a growing number of super weeds and super bugs. This situation has created a new market for an ever stronger cocktail of chemicals, all of which you will supply. Indebted farmers must buy your patented seeds, which they are not allowed to save. When farmers do save seeds, or when the GE pollen drifts, you sue them for illegally using your patented products. Farmers who buy and plant your seeds must fertilize and spray insecticides and herbicides ad infinitem. I commend you for putting profits before people, ensuring the downfall of innocents and bringing them to me.
Using your wealth to infiltrate the US government was pure genius, and your recent success in getting the USDA to accelerate your product introduction is gratifying. You obviously have minions in high places, including the White House, and this collusion with governments has helped you to spread your demon seed and chemicals around the globe.
You are in good company with other biotech firms that pervert the natural cycles of life with their products such as Bayer Crop Sciences, DuPont, Aqua Bounty Technologies, Dow, and Sygenta. All do my bidding to bring misery to the human race and their short lived livestock, who suffer greatly. The profiteers of the biotech industry have gained my gratitude.
For all your excellent work Monsanto, you are welcome in Hell as honorary demons.
Yours in demise,

Garbo, my adored little MaineCoon kitty has departed.

Garbo got put to sleep last Wednesday and once I made the decision the tears didn't stop until the whole process was over. I created a beautiful altar for her in my office and kept her there until Friday night due to the smell of decay setting in.
Saturday night my husband Victor gave me a birthday party and my grandson and my son-in-law dug the hole in my garden for me to bury her before they joined the party.

Yesterday was the momentous birthday so I decided to just indulge myself while I was home alone and not be sad putting her into the ground. That job get's done today. The book "Weep Not For Me, In Memory of a Beloved Cat" by Constance Jenkins is so consoling and comforting. It is written in the voice of the cat and you are asked to grieve but a short time.

So I must get out into the garden and actually have a ceremony as I bury her. Her death is definitely the end of an era in my life.
I feel relief that she is no longer struggling with advanced kitty age and I kept her alive as long as I did as she seemed to totally still enjoy going outside, drinking water from the pond and eating. The final two days of her life were spent behind the TV in the den lying on bunches of cables. I took her for a walk outside and she followed me around as always. She will remain to live on in my memory. RIP sweet, precious, beautiful, sassy Garbo.
