OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT BARACK H. OBAMA REGARDING HIS INABILITY TO “GUARANTEE” 3 AUGUST 2011 SOCIAL SECURITY PAYMENTS
RE: SOCIAL SECURITY PAYMENTS
Let me make myself perfectly clear.
I am a 57-year-old disabled person who worked for 20 years paying into Social Security and am duly entitled to the disability benefits which I receive. I don’t have retirement. I don’t have a savings account. I am one of millions of people who have paid into the system and depend on the money I get every month in order to live, pay rent, buy food and medicine. I live below the poverty line and struggle every day to survive.
If my rent does not get paid by the 5th of the month, I get taken to court and put out on the street. I have been out on the street before and I would not survive for long with my current disabilities and medical conditions.
And you “cannot guarantee” that MY Social Security – money that belongs to ME, that was taken out of MY paychecks for 20 years – will be available on 3 August 2011. What kind of a monster are you???
It is one thing for you to be playing brinksmanship with Congress. It is another thing entirely when you make not even thinly veiled threats to the most vulnerable people in this country in order to apply pressure on Congress to knuckle under to what you are demanding.
What you said is abusive and threatening. I don’t know about anybody else, but I do not take kindly to being threatened. Nor do I take kindly to being used as a hostage in order to blackmail someone else, which is exactly what you did. Your words and your behaviour is despicable, unconscionable, and highly disrespectful of your constituency who depend on Social Security, as well as highly unworthy conduct for anyone occupying the Office of President of the United States.
No, Mr. President, I WILL NOT go to my Congressman and Senators and encourage them to raise the debt ceiling which you are demanding. I will go to them and tell them that I DO NOT approve of raising the debt ceiling for this country. I will not be part of the madding rush to destruction in our continuing unsound fiscal policies. I will not be blackmailed in that way and I will not allow you to blackmail them that way through me.
It is you who I hold accountable for what happens in this budget crisis. You are the one who is refusing to accept any stop-gap measures, so the crisis is one of your own making. Stop the blackmail and brinksmanship. The people whom you govern will not allow your high-handed tactics to go unchallenged or unanswered.
Julia E, Clark

AMEN SISTER! WE ALL NEED TO BAND TOGETHER AND GET A PETITION STARTED TO IMPEACH OUR NOT SO DEAR “EL PRESIDENTE” AND GET HIM OUT OF OFFICE BEFORE HE PUTS US ALL OUT IN THE STREETS!
OF ALL OF THE PRESIDENTS THAT THIS COUNTRY HAS HAD, HE HAS TO BE THE WORST!
HE GAVE MONEY TO THOSE ALREADY RICH SOB’ING BIG WIG CORPORATIONS…
MONEY WHICH, BY THE WAY, THEY USED TO GIVE THEMSELVES RAISES…
HE IS WILLING TO SEND MONEY OVERSEAS TO BLASTED COUNTRIES THAT WOULD STAB US IN THE BACK THE FIRST CHANCE THEY GOT-
AND WHO HAVE NEVER LIFTED A FINGER REALLY TO HELP THEMSELVES…
HE CONDONES ABORTION…
HE CANCELED THE NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER AND THEN LET MUSLIMS PRAY ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN…
HE IS STEALING US BLIND…SENDING MORE AND MORE OF OUR YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN OVER TO BE BUTCHERED-
AND LET US NOT FORGET WANTING TO PAY THEM LESS!-
AND HE HAS CAUSED MORE MISERY TO THIS COUNTRY AND MORE LOSS OF JOBS-GREATER DEBT-
AND MORE CHAOS THAN ANY ONE MAN HAS A RIGHT TO CAUSE.
I HAVE A BLOG HERE ON WORDPRESS….https://wordwriter1958.wordpress.com/2011/07/19/let-our-voices-be-heard-2/…IN WHICH I EXPRESSED MY CONCERNS FOR THIS MATTER.
SADLY, IT APPEARS THAT NO ONE ELSE CARES, FOR THAT BLOG HAS BEEN POSTED FOR NEARLY A WEEK AND ONLY TWO OR THREE HAVE READ IT.
AND THAT APATHY IS PRECISELY WHAT IS KEEPING US DOWN.
IN THAT BLOG ON MY SITE, GHOST WRITER ( https://wordwriter1958.wordpress.com/ ), I STATE THAT WORDS HAVE POWER…
AND THEY DO….
BUT NOT IF THEY ARE NOT SAID.
WE ALL NEED TO “PUT OUR BIG GIRL PANTIES ON” AND STEP FORWARD AND MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD…
BECAUSE IF WE DON’T, WE WILL CONTINUE TO SUFFER THE BACKWASH OF A MAN WHOSE ONLY GOAL SEEMS TO BE TO DESTROY THE VERY COUNTRY AND PEOPLE HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE REPRESENTING AND DEFENDING…
BUT THEN WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT OF A MAN WHO HOLDS ONE OF THE HIGHEST OFFICES OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY…
AND WON’T EVEN SALUTE ITS FLAG?
I PROUDLY POST THIS MESSAGE AS A CITIZEN OF ONE OF THE GREATEST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD…
AND AS A VICTIM OF “THE MAN’S” THREATENED SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS CANCELLATION.
