“Unless they have drastically changed the rules since I was familiar with them, no one gets 100% retirement after only 20 years in the military. Besides who are you to decide how much retirement is appropriate for a hard-working person who successfully pursues and completes more than one career?”

“Okay, that settles it! No more CEOs in Congress!

Maybe next time they will decide that members of the military will have to provide their own weapons, ammunition and transportation!

I have a hint for you people, since you can only seem to focus on what you can take away from the personnel, just as has happened every time between meaningful large wars in this country and others, you are Way overloaded with Brass. Three times the generals and admirals required to run an operation of this size.”

“With every person who signs up for insurance they could not get before, every story of the great new deal that was had by someone who used to struggle to pay for their insurance, and every lie which is told about the ACA and then uncovered as such, the GOPers fall a little deeper into the hole from which they will never remove themselves. Sometimes life is good.”

“"I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country." - Thomas Jefferson, 1812

"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country...Corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."
- Abraham Lincoln, November 21, 1864

"It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government to their own selfish purposes." -- Andrew Jackson

"The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism - ownership of the government by an individual or a group." - FDR

"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power." - Benito Mussolini

"When fascism comes to America, it will have Corporate sponsorship." - Hetrose (with a nod to Sinclair Lewis)”

“The money should be placed into a fund, to which all Americans can voluntarily donate as well, which will be treated like a lottery fund. The funds from this pool will be dispersed to qualified entrants if they win the lottery. Qualified entrants are those current office holders, and others who would otherwise seek to hold public office in the future, who are members of the TeaPublican Party and who agree, upon entry into the lottery, to give up their current position as the condition of entry and who further agree that they will never again seek or accept any position of authority whatsoever in this country for the rest of their natural lives. This agreement will be legally binding and for those who break this agreement the penalty will be forfeiture of all real assets, a ten year sentence which compels them to remain locked away from the public and at the end of said period they will be deported to any other country stupid enough to receive them, never to be allowed to set foot on American soil again. Spread the word and get them all to sign up. There will a finders fee award per signature for which you are responsible, plus the thanks of a grateful nation.”
