Diners confront McConnell at restaurant, get told to “leave him alone” by other patrons

Time to fight back against the rude and unhinged demorats.

From Fox News: A small group of angry diners confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at a restaurant Friday night, but were met with calls from other customers to leave the Kentucky Republican alone.

Video obtained by TMZ shows at least one diner berating McConnell on issues such as Social Security at a restaurant in Louisville. The video starts with him yelling at McConnell and arguing with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao — to whom McConnell is married. The outlet reported that four men first confronted McConnell.

“Oh yeh, why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave our entire country,” the protester tells the couple.

As Chao argues with the protester, McConnell appears nonplussed and sips on a drink. But other diners begin yelling at the protester, telling him to “leave him alone” and making shoo-ing gestures.

“They’re going to come for Social Security,” he told the other diners, before appearing to be approached by staff.

According to TMZ, the woman who recorded the incident said the protester slammed his fists on McConnell’s table and threw food out of the restaurant after accusing McConnell of killing people with his views. McConnell reportedly later thanked some of the supporters and shook their hands.

McConnell’s office did not immediately respond to request for comment from Fox News.

The incident marks the latest hounding of a Republican or Trump administration official from a restaurant. Last month Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was forced out of a restaurant by protesters angry at his support of the confirmation of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

McConnell and Chao were confronted by protesters earlier in the year as they left an event at Georgetown University. Chao stood up to the protesters and told them to “leave my husband alone.”

In July, McConnell was confronted by more protesters as he left a restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky. Protesters reportedly yelled “abolish ICE” and “no justice, no peace.”

“I see what they did here. They waited until Elaine wasn’t around,” McConnell subsequently tweeted.

Perpetual blame game: Clinton suggests Bernie Sanders resorted to "innuendo and impugning my character" to gain ground in the primary

hillary-clinton-screams-why-arent-i-50-points-ahead

Hillary the loser.


Must suck to be so bitter.
From Daily Mail: Hillary Clinton‘s frustrations with Bernie Sanders spill out onto the pages of her forthcoming book, What Happened, as she gripes about his campaign tactics and the fact that he was never truly a Democrat. 
‘Because we agreed on so much, Bernie couldn’t make an argument against me in this area on policy, so he had to resort to innuendo and impugning my character,’ Clinton writes, according to a page tweeted out by journalist and CauseWired founder Tom Watson.
The Vermont senator, Clinton charged, laid the foundation for Donald Trump‘s ‘Crooked Hillary’ charge against her, and didn’t have the future of the Democratic Party in mind during his run.
‘Some of his supporters, the so-called Bernie Bros, took to harassing my supporters online. It got ugly and more than a little sexist,’ Clinton recalled.
During the primary, Sanders would often hint that Clinton was corrupt because of financial donations she took from Wall Street and other large companies. ‘When I finally challenged Bernie during a debate to name a single time I changed a position or a vote because of a financial contribution he couldn’t come up with anything,’ Clinton noted.
‘Nonetheless, his attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump’s “Crooked Hillary” campaign,’ she said.
Clinton wondered aloud if Sanders even cared, as he considered himself a Democratic Socialist, and not a Democrat, and thought about running for president as an independent.  
‘I don’t know if that bothered Bernie or not,’ she said. ‘He certainly shared my horror at the thought of Donald Trump becoming president, and I appreciated that he campaigned for me in the general election.’
‘But he isn’t a Democrat – that’s not a smear, that’s what he says,’ Clinton continued.’
‘He didn’t get into the race to make sure a Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party,’ she noted.
Clinton said Sanders was right that the Democratic Party needed to pay more attention to working families.  And she also pointed out that there’s a ‘danger’ in spending too much time fundraising, though blamed it on the country’s ‘insane campaign finance system.’
Clinton also gave credit to Sanders for bringing a lot of young people into the political process.
‘But I think he was fundamentally wrong about the Democratic Party – the party that brought us Social Security under Roosevelt; Medicare and Medicaid under Johnson; peace between Israel and Egypt under Carter; broad-based prosperity and a balanced budget under Clinton; and rescued the auto industry, passed health care reform and imposed tough new rules on Wall Street under Obama,’ Clinton noted.
‘I am proud to be a Democrat and I wish Bernie were, too,’ Clinton said.

More California seniors work full-time into their late 60s and early 70s

Hope you have some money saved as I’m sure this is a trend that doesn’t affect just Californians.
walmart greeter
Sacramento Bee:  A growing proportion of Californian seniors are working full time, a sign that many have not saved enough for retirement, according to a Bee review of new census data. About 14.3 percent of Californians between 65 and 75 worked full-time, year-round in 2014, up from 7.5 percent in 2000.
As Baby Boomers become seniors, that translates into almost 440,000 senior citizens working full time last year in California, more than double the number from 2000.
A few things are likely behind the trend. First, the federal government has gradually raised the age when seniors can receive full Social Security benefits. It was 65 in 2000; it currently sits at 66; it will be 67 by the end of the next decade. (Even so, the number of Californians 67 and older working full-time has also doubled in the last 15 years.)
Economics likely plays a role. About 140,000 seniors working full-time earned $30,000 or less in 2014, the census figures show. And roughly 30 percent of U.S. households with members age 55 or older have zero retirement savings, according to a recent analysis by the U.S. Government Accountability Office.
Others simply choose to keep working. About 95,000 senior citizens in California worked full-time and earned $100,000 or more last year, census figures show.
The most common jobs for working seniors last year were business manager, CEO, administrative assistant, lawyer and retail sales clerk, the data show.
The state’s largest urban areas are driving the trend. Portions of the Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego metros have the highest concentration of seniors continuing to work full time. In the Sacramento region, the areas with the highest proportion of working seniors are Citrus Heights, western Roseville, and central Sacramento.

Social Security's $300M IT project doesn't work

We've already flushed enough...

Your tax dollars at work…


ABC News: After spending nearly $300 million on a new computer system to handle disability claims, the Social Security Administration still can’t get it to work. And officials can’t say when it will.
Six years ago, Social Security embarked on an aggressive plan to replace outdated computer systems overwhelmed by a growing flood of disability claims. But the project has been racked by delays and mismanagement, according to an internal report commissioned by the agency.
Today, the project is still in the testing phase, and the agency can’t say when it will be operational or how much it will cost.
In the meantime, people filing for disability claims face long delays at nearly every step of the process — delays that were supposed to be reduced by the new processing system.
“The program has invested $288 million over six years, delivered limited functionality and faced schedule delays as well as increasing stakeholder concerns,” said a report by McKinsey & Co., a management consulting firm.
As a result, agency leaders have decided to “reset” the program in an effort to save it, the report said. As part of that effort, Social Security brought in the outside consultants from McKinsey to figure out what went wrong.
They found a massive technology initiative with no one in charge — no single person responsible for completing the project. They issued their report in June, though it was not publicly released.
transparency is a lie
As part of McKinsey’s recommendations, acting Social Security Commissioner Carolyn Colvin appointed Terrie Gruber to oversee the project last month. Gruber had been an assistant deputy commissioner.
“We asked for this, this independent look, and we weren’t afraid to hear what the results are,” Gruber said in an interview Wednesday. “We are absolutely committed to deliver this initiative and by implementing the recommendations we obtained independently, we think we have a very good prospect on doing just that.”
The revelations come at an awkward time for Colvin. President Barack Obama nominated Colvin to a full six-year term in June, and she now faces confirmation by the Senate. Colvin was deputy commissioner for 3½ years before becoming acting commissioner in February 2013.
The Senate Finance Committee has scheduled a confirmation hearing for Colvin for July 31.
The House Oversight Committee is also looking into the computer program, and whether Social Security officials tried to bury the McKinsey report. In a letter to Colvin on Wednesday, committee leaders requested all documents and communications about the computer project since March 1.
The letter was signed by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the Oversight Committee, and Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and James Lankford, R-Okla. They called the project “an IT boondoggle.”
The troubled computer project is known as the Disability Case Processing System, or DCPS. It was supposed to replace 54 separate, antiquated computer systems used by state Social Security offices to process disability claims. As envisioned, workers across the country would be able to use the system to process claims and track them as benefits are awarded or denied and claims are appealed.
But as of April, the system couldn’t even process all new claims, let alone accurately track them as they wound their way through the system, the report said. In all, more than 380 problems were still outstanding, and users hadn’t even started testing the ability of the system to handle applications from children.
“The DCPS project is adrift, the scope of the project is ambiguous, the project has been poorly executed, and the project’s development lacks leadership,” the three lawmakers said in their letter to Colvin.
Maryland-based Lockheed Martin was selected in 2011 as the prime contractor on the project. At the time, the company valued the contract at up to $200 million, according to a press release.
McKinsey’s report does not specifically fault Lockheed but raises the possibility of changing vendors and says Social Security officials need to better manage the project.
Gruber said Social Security will continue to work with Lockheed “to make sure that we are successful in the delivery of this program.” Steve Field, a spokesman for Lockheed Martin, would only say that the company is committed to delivering the program.
Nearly 11 million disabled workers, spouses and children get Social Security disability benefits. That’s a 45 percent increase from a decade ago. The average monthly benefit for a disabled worker is $1,146.
The report comes as the disability program edges toward the brink of insolvency. The trust fund that supports Social Security’s disability program is projected to run out of money in 2016. At that point, the system will collect only enough money in payroll taxes to pay 80 percent of benefits, triggering an automatic 20 percent cut in benefits.
Congress could redirect money from Social Security’s much bigger retirement program to shore up the disability program, as it did in 1994. But that would worsen the finances of the retirement program, which is facing its own long-term financial problems.
Social Security disability claims are first processed through a network of field offices and state agencies called Disability Determination Services. There are 54 of these offices, and they all use different computer systems, Gruber said.
If your claim is rejected, you can ask the state agency to reconsider. If your claim is rejected again, you can appeal to an administrative law judge, who is employed by the Social Security Administration.
It takes more than 100 days, on average, to processing initial applications, according to agency data. The average processing time for a hearing before an administrative law judge is more than 400 days.
The new processing system is supposed to help alleviate some of these delays.

Social Security benefits: pay more for less

Is Social Security still a good deal for workers?

WASHINGTON (AP)People retiring today are part of the first generation of workers who have paid more in Social Security taxes during their careers than they will receive in benefits after they retire. It’s a historic shift that will only get worse for future retirees, according to an analysis by The Associated Press.

Previous generations got a much better bargain, mainly because payroll taxes were very low when Social Security was enacted in the 1930s and remained so for decades.

“For the early generations, it was an incredibly good deal,” said Andrew Biggs, a former deputy Social Security commissioner who is now a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. “The government gave you free money and getting free money is popular.”

If you retired in 1960, you could expect to get back seven times more in benefits than you paid in Social Security taxes, and more if you were a low-income worker, as long you made it to age 78 for men and 81 for women.

As recently as 1985, workers at every income level could retire and expect to get more in benefits than they paid in Social Security taxes, though they didn’t do quite as well as their parents and grandparents.
Not anymore.  A married couple retiring last year after both spouses earned average lifetime wages paid about $598,000 in Social Security taxes during their careers. They can expect to collect about $556,000 in benefits, if the man lives to 82 and the woman lives to 85, according to a 2011 study by the Urban Institute, a Washington think tank.

Social Security benefits are progressive, so most low-income workers retiring today still will get slightly more in benefits than they paid in taxes. Most high-income workers started getting less in benefits than they paid in taxes in the 1990s, according to data from the Social Security Administration.

The shift among middle-income workers is happening just as millions of baby boomers are reaching retirement, leaving relatively fewer workers behind to pay into the system. It’s coming at a critical time for Social Security, the federal government’s largest program.
The trustees who oversee Social Security say its funds, which have been built up over the past 30 years with surplus payroll taxes, will run dry in 2033 unless Congress acts. At that point, payroll taxes would provide enough revenue each year to pay about 75 percent of benefits.
To cover the shortfall, future retirees probably will have to pay higher taxes while they are working, accept lower benefits after they retire, or some combination of both.
“Future generations are going to do worse because either they are going to get fewer benefits or they are going to pay higher taxes,” said Eugene Steuerle, a former Treasury official who has studied the issue as a fellow at the Urban Institute.
How can you get a better return on your Social Security taxes?
Live longer. Benefit estimates are based on life expectancy. For those turning 65 this year, Social Security expects women to live 20 more years and men to live 17.8 more.
But returns alone don’t fully explain the value of Social Security, which has features that aren’t available in typical private-sector retirement plans, said David Certner, legislative policy director for AARP.
Spouses can get benefits even if they never earned wages. Children can get benefits if they have a working parent who dies. People who are too disabled to work can get benefits for life.
Because of spousal benefits, most married couples with only one wage earner will continue to get more in benefits than they pay in taxes for the foreseeable future.
“You are buying this lifetime inflation-protected benefit that you can never run out of and that will always be there for you,” Certner said. “It protects your spouse, protects your family and protects you from disability.”
Certner noted that private pensions, retirement savings and home values took a big hit when the economy collapsed, putting a dent in the retirement plans of many Americans.
“When you have that combination of factors, Social Security becomes more and more important,” Certner said. Social Security is financed by a 12.4 percent tax on wages. Workers pay half and their employers pay the other half. Self-employed workers pay the full 12.4 percent.
The tax is applied to the first $110,100 of a worker’s wages, a level that increases each year with inflation. For 2011 and 2012, the tax rate for employees was reduced to 4.2 percent, but is scheduled to return to 6.2 percent in January.
The payroll tax rate was only 2 percent in 1937, the first year Social Security taxes were levied. It didn’t surpass 6 percent until 1962.
About 56 million people now collect Social Security benefits, a number that is projected to grow to 91 million in 2035. Monthly benefits average $1,235 for retired workers and $1,111 for disabled workers.

I’m not holding my breath that I may ever see any of my Social Security benefits.  In four years, by 2016, the first of the Social Security funds — SS disability — will be in full collapse.

America is in a Depression, not a Recession

The Liberal Establishment Media keep singing their happy tune that the U.S. economy is improving, albeit slowly. But a liberal economist says otherwise.
Paul Krugman is a Nobel Prize-winning economist, an op-ed columnist at the New York Times, and an Obama supporter. And Paul Krugman thinks we are in a depression.
On December 11, 2011, Krugman wrote: “It’s time to start calling the current situation what it is: a depression.” Most recently, in his column of May 10, 2012, Krugman thinks matters have not improved. As he puts it: “How did we get stuck in what now can only be called a depression?”
When we think “depression,” images of the Great Depression’s soup and bread lines in the 1930s automatically spring to mind. We don’t see people lining up in those lines today, so this must mean America is not in a depression!
Wrong.
The reason why we don’t see those lines is because those who otherwise would be standing in those lines are getting food from the welfare state’s profusion of programs — food stamps, unemployment benefits, Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Social Security Disability, student loans…. Americans’ dependency on Government programs currently makes up as much as 35% of personal incomes.
In other words, what we have is a Hidden Depression.
Lance Roberts writes in his article on the Hidden Depression for StreetTalkLive, May 14, 2012:
Behind the mainstream media’s attention to the daily economic numbers there is a hidden economic depression running along the underbelly of the country.  High levels of unemployment have kept pressures on wages even as work hours have lengthened.  This, of course, is assuming full time employment.  In reality many individuals are working but either part-time at one or more jobs to make ends meet or working full-time as a temporary hire at reduced wage levels.  The declines in real income are evident.  The burgeoning labor pool and demand for work is suppressing wages as companies opt for increasing productivity and streamlining employment to protect corporate profit margins.  However, as the cost of living is affected by the rising food, energy and healthcare prices without a compensatory increase in incomes – more families are forced to turn to assistance in order to survive.

[…] Without government largesse many individuals would literally be living on the street.  The chart [below] shows all the government “welfare” programs and current levels to date.  The black line represents the sum of the underlying sub-components.  While unemployment insurance has tapered off after its sharp rise post the financial crisis, social security, Medicaid, Veterans’ benefits and other social benefits have continued to rise.   The government “safety net” is already under tremendous strain as the number of “workers” supporting the system has fallen markedly over the last 30 years.

[…] For the average person these social benefits, however, are critical to their survival as they make up more than 22.5% of real disposable personal incomes.  With 1/5 of incomes dependent on government transfers it is not surprising that the economy continues to struggle as recycled tax dollars used for consumption purposes have virtually no impact on the overall economy.

More disturbing is that this huge increase in demand on “welfare” support in its various forms does not include the more than 46 million Americans which are dependent on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or more affectionately known as “food stamps.” Without this assistance the basic needs of survival for many families can not be met. 

[…]the reality is that recycled tax dollars have been proven to generate little or no economic growth which is evident from recent GDP data.  Astoundingly the total benefits in 2011 rose above $71 Billion which was a 107% increase from 2008.  Yet we are told the economy is improving?
[…] As the ability to source income from traditional support programs becomes limited or exhausted – individuals can become very creative.  Two of the most interesting areas that have been tapped to support basic consumption needs since the beginning of the “great recession”is student loans and disability insurance.
The number of individuals claiming disability has surged to the highest levels on record since beginning of the last recession. What is most notable, however, is when the surge of individuals claiming disability began – exactly two years from the beginning of the financial crisis. This is when the 2 years of extended unemployment insurance began to run out. […] Today, more than 28 million Americans who are of working age have a disability – a level higher than at any other time in recorded history.

However, if you cannot claim disability why not just say you are going back to school?  […] The chart [below] shows only the federal student loan program which has surged 400% since the end of the last recession and is now the federal governments largest financial asset comprising 31% of its balance sheet.  However, in reality, student loan debt in total, which including private label loan programs, has now reached $1 trillion.

[…] Even as the media trumpets that the Fed has saved the economy from a “depression,” it might just be a statistical victory at best.  The government may say this is not the 1930’s where bread lines formed outside the corner soup kitchen, however, for many American’s the only difference is that they are found at the mailbox and online instead.
~End of Lance Roberts’ article~
+++
America’s national debt now exceeds our GDP and is closing in on $16 trillion. It doesn’t take an Albert Einstein to know that our super-extended welfare state cannot continue as it is. Indeed the danger signs are already visible.
In four years, by 2016, the first of the Social Security funds — SS disability — will be in full collapse.
Brian Faler reports for The Washington Post, May 30, 2012:
“The disability program pays benefits averaging $1,111 a month, with the money coming from the Social Security payroll tax. The program cost $132 billion last year, more than the combined annual budgets of the departments of Agriculture, Homeland Security, Commerce, Labor, Interior and Justice. That doesn’t include an additional $80 billion spent because disability beneficiaries become eligible for Medicare, regardless of their age, after a two-year waiting period. The disability program is projected to exhaust its trust fund in 2016, according to a Social Security trustees report released last month. Once it runs through its reserve, incoming payroll-tax revenue will cover only 79% of benefits, according to the trustees. Because the plan is barred from running a deficit, aid would have to be cut to match revenue.”
It is anticipated that by 2016 when the Social Security disability program runs out of cash, this will trigger a 21% cut in benefits to 11 million Americans — people with disabilities, plus their spouses and children — many of whom rely on the program to stay out of poverty.
By 2017, one year after its disability program goes bust, the main Social Security program itself will be in trouble, paying out more in benefits than it takes in. In the 1950s, there were roughly 5 workers for every retiree; today, it is roughly half of that. With 78 million Baby Boomers moving into retirement, the demands on social security will be even greater in the coming years ahead. With demographics heading in the wrong direction and a much slower growth economy, the Social Security Administration has moved up its estimate that the Social Security Fund will be exhausted entirely by 2033.

Alan Simpson is a POS

Which former Republican senator thinks Obama is groovy and peachy and just way smarter than anyone alive?
The correct answer is “Alan Simpson”.
On August 5, 2011, referring to Obama’s debt ceiling negotiation with the Congressional Republicans, Simpson said in an interview with the Denver Post: “This guy is a little bit smarter than some of the guys who are trying to hammer him. They ought to give it up.”
Alan Simpson, a U. S. Senator from Wyoming for 18 years (1979-1997), was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Alan’s dad was Milward Simpson, a former Governor of Wyoming (1955–1959) as well as a U.S. Senator from Wyoming (1962–1967) who voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Sen. Alan Simpson has been an outspoken advocate for access to abortion, calling the killing of tiny defenseless babies “the precious right of privacy”. He supports gay and lesbian rights, and is openly critical of the military’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

In 2010, Obama appointed good ol’ Alan to co-chair the useless bipartisan deficit reduction group, the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform.
When the commission issued its draft proposals to help erase the federal government’s then-$13.8 trillion debt — proposals that included raising the Social Security retirement age from 65 to 69 to bring in $1 trillion more in tax revenue — liberals and conservatives alike reacted with strong opposition. That prompted Simpson to whine to Wyoming’s Trib.com:

“I’ve never had any nastier mail or [been in a] more difficult position in my life. Just vicious. People I’ve known, relatives [saying], ‘You son of a bitch. How could you do this?’ We had the greatest generation — I think this is the greediest generation.”

Then Simpson poured oil on the fire he’d lit. In a letter responding to criticisms by a group representing older women, Simpson called Social Security “a milk cow with 310 million tits.” (You can read his e-mail here.)
That prompted this response from an anonymous farmer in Montana — a response that has gone viral:

“Hey Alan, let’s get a few things straight.

1. As a career politician, you have been on the public 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 ambition losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would have made 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 to Age 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 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 “bullshit” on your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullshit, 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 Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the “greedy” ones. It is you and your fellow nutcases who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes. 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 ASS.”

In his youth, Alan Simpson was a juvenile delinquent.
In high school, Simpson and some friends “went out to do damage” and torched an abandoned federal government war relocation structure, a crime now punishable by up to 20 years in prison. The gang also went shooting in their community, firing their 22 caliber rifles at mailboxes, blowing holes in several and killing a cow.
Simpson pled guilty to destroying government property and got two years of probation. Simpson’s words to the Court were “I was a monster.” [Source: Wikipedia]
Earth to Alan Simpson: You’re still a monster.
