Social Security head: Program fraying from neglect

The trustees who oversee Social Security say the program’s trust funds
will run dry in 2033, leaving Social Security with only enough revenue
to pay about 75 percent of benefits. Already the program is paying out
more in benefits than it collects in payroll taxes.

This does not take a rocket scientist to figure this out. You cant get blood from a turnip as the saying goes.

Fix this damn problem you bunch of worthless political hacks.  Do you job to do whats right instead of worrying how to get reelected.  You dont run for office to get reelected, you run for office to find solutions to problems and if you cant do that, get the hell out.

The Nations current economic policies! Heading toward bancruptcy like Greece.

Let’s take a quick look at the current President’s economic policies:

* U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
* Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000
* New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
* National debt: $16,271,000,000,000
* Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000

Let’s now remove 8 zeros and pretend it’s a household budget:

* Annual family income: $21,700
* Money the family spent: $38,200
* New debt on the credit card: $16,500
* Outstanding balance on the credit card: $162,710
* Total budget cuts so far: $3.85

Defeated Dorr fire millage returns back on the ballot again in November. Do you think your vote matters? Not to this Dorr Township board it doesn’t .

Well, here we go again.  I just got home from the Dorr Township board meeting to wish 3 current board members a long happy retirement, and to no ones surprise, this board votes to put the defeated fire millage that the voters of Dorr Township voted down not even 2 weeks ago, back on the ballot in November.

DEFEATED -Dorr Fire Millage results from election    NO-624       YES-513
    
Tammy Vanhaitsma made the motion to put it back on the ballot and Josh Otto seconded it until Larry Dolegowski told him he couldn’t because he is on the fire Depart.


Heres the vote tally to put the fire millage back on the November ballot:

  Your vote in the Primary means nothing to the current township board members below. Thankfully 3 are gone! Now we have another chance to remove 1 more trustee and elect Brian Boot as our NEW Clerk.

Tammy VanHaitsma-YES
Dan Weber-YES                 
*Jodi Brummel-YES            *gone, didn’t run for reelection
*Larry Dolegowski-YES       *gone, was defeated in the primary
*Paul Davis-YES                 *gone, was defeated in the primary

Josh Otto-obstained       oh good for you Josh, so big of you to do that.

Janice Saunders- was not present

Not only will this Fire Millage be back on the ballot in November, but it will be for 4  years instead of 2.   So if it gets passed, then they dont have to worry again for another 3 years.   The message will surely come, you don’t understand. Its not an increase, its just a renewal.  Your house insurance could go up, blah, blah, blah.  Whatever!

The only thing I know, is I want our township board to listen when people cast their votes, and this board DOES NOT!

Please vote for 4 NEW Dorr township board members,
Brian Boot- Clerk, NEW
John Tuinstra-Trustee, NEW
Patty Sennker-Trustee, NEW
Christine Schwartz-Trustee, NEW 
for a NEW change to stop those old out of control board members who will remain. 

(When you vote for trustees, it says do not vote for more than 4. You do NOT have to vote for 4, but you cannot vote for more than 4! Only vote for those trustees who will honor the people they serve and not work against them.)

With 4 NEW members, the majority changes with conservative people who will listen to the people. 

We have 2 trustees who tied in the Primary election…Weber and Dolegowski. One must go!

This is the procedure that determines who will win and who will lose.

The law in Michigan is already set for circumstances such as this and here it is.

Tie Votes

In those rare instances where it is revealed through the canvass that two candidates are tied for nomination or election to an office certified by the canvassing board, the tie is determined by a drawing. (A tie vote on a ballot question defeats the ballot question; a tie breaking procedure is not followed.) As an initial step, the canvassing board sets a date when the tied candidates and all interested parties can assemble to participate in the drawing. Upon the establishment of a date, the canvassing board sends notice of the meeting to the candidates and interested parties. At the meeting, the county clerk or local clerk handling the procedure writes the word “ELECTED” on a slip of paper and the words ‘NOT ELECTED” on an identical slip of paper. Both of the slips are folded so that the words written on them cannot be seen and the two slips are indistinguishable from one another. Each candidate then draws one of the slips from a box. The candidate who draws the slip which bears the word “ELECTED” is deemed legally elected to the office involved. (MCL 168.851; 852)

If an affected candidate fails to appear at the meeting, the county clerk or local clerk handling the procedure has the authority to appoint any person present to draw a slip for the absent candidate. If both candidates fail to appear at the meeting, persons are appointed to draw a slip for both of the candidates.

See what candidates are running on Township ballots set for August primary election.

Ronald Reagan a class act. We miss you Mr. President. May God Almighty bless your soul.

An amusing letter from former President Ronald Reagan in response to a 13-year-old boy’s request for disaster relief funds to clean up his room.

Dear Andy:

I’m sorry to be so late in answering your letter but as you know I’ve been in China and found your letter here upon my return.

Your application for disaster relief has been duly noted but I must point out one technical problem; the authority declaring the disaster is supposed to make the request. In this case your mother.

However setting that aside I’ll have to point out the larger problem of available funds. This has been a year of disasters, 539 hurricanes as of May 4th and several more since, numerous floods, forest fires, drought in Texas and a number of earthquakes. What I’m getting at is that funds are dangerously low.

May I make a suggestion? This administration, believing that government has done many things that could better be done by volunteers at the local level, has sponsored a Private Sector Initiative program, calling upon people to practice voluntarism in the solving of a number of local problems.

Your situation appears to be a natural. I’m sure your mother was fully justified in proclaiming your room a disaster. Therefore you are in an excellent position to launch another volunteer program to go along with the more than 3,000 already underway in our nation—congratulations.

Give my best regards to your mother.

Sincerely, Ronald Reagan
