IslandDrumz

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

HEADS UP Y'ALL!

IT''S NATIONAL TIE ONE ON DAY :-) I SWEAR!!

                         NATIONAL TIE ONE ON DAY

 National Tie One on Day might confuse people with it’s name however it is not at all about going out, getting crazy and drinking to much while others are at home, working hard preparing for tomorrow’s big Thanksgiving Day meal.
National Tie One on Day celebrates the apron as well as the past generations of women who wore them and it was also created as a day to bring joy to the life of someone in need and celebrate the spirit of giving.
“Women clad in aprons have traditionally prepared the Thanksgiving meal, and it is within our historical linkage to share our bounty.” Ellyn Anne Geisel
As part of National Tie One on Day, Buy an apron, bake something, tuck a note of encouragement in the pocket of the apron (or pin it on it), wrap the baked good in the apron and give it to someone in need on Thanksgiving Eve.
well shit....
 Oh well

Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming , 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 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!!!!!
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 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 and 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" propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because "you" 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  "incompetents" 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.

7.To add insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for calling "bullshit"  to 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 thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes, your job and retirement security at our expense, you leech.

That's right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing
your 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 son of a bitch .

NO, I did not stutter.

P.S. And stop calling Social Security benefits "entitlements".   WHAT AN INSULT!!!!
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 by doling out these monthly checks.

EVERYONE!!!
If you like the way things are in America delete this.

If you agree with what a Montana citizen, Patty Myers, says, please PASS IT ON

WE ALSO NEED TO
PASS IT ONTO OUR CONGRESSMAN!!
