In light of the economic collapse taking place in the United States and across the world, it is important for us to realize that people of all walks of like are seeing their life savings wiped away and the promises made to them by their governments being broken.
Whether you are a college student who thought your Master’s degree would land you a high paying job, a thirty something former manager of a Fortune 500 company now looking for anything that will cover the bills, or a senior citizen depending on Social Security to support you during retirement, you are on the front lines of the fallout.
Patty Myers, is just such a person, and she has had enough. She reportedly sent a letter to President Obama’s Deficit Commission co-chaired by former Senator Alan Simpson from Wyoming. In an April 2012 exchange, Simpson lambasted senior citizens and referred to them as “Greedy Geezers”:
The letter, dated April 7, scolds the “wretched group of seniors” and “greedy geezers” for including the faces of young people on its fliers.
“You must feel some sense of shame for shoveling out this…,” Simpson wrote. “Read the latest news from the Social Security trustees. The Social Security system will now ‘hit the skids’ in 2033 instead of 2036. If you can’t understand all of this you need a pane of glass in your naval [sic] so you can see out during the day!” (source)

We would venture a guess that, no matter what your background or current situation, no matter how old you are, you would have similar words for our elected politicians.
Here’s the letter attributed to Ms. Myers, made available via ColoradoGold.com:
“Hey Alan, let’s get a few things straight. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole for FIFTY YEARS. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 years (since I was 15, and am now 63). 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. This bankrupted the system, and turned Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would have made Bernie Madoff proud.
“Recently, just like Charlie Brown and Lucy, you and your ilk pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement age, 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.
“Myself, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from day one, and now you and your moronic compatriots, 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, and you have spent more than any administration in history.
“We 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 keep on spending, even after you ran out of money to spend. Now, you come to the American Taxpayers, and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt, not ours. To add insult to injury, you label us as “greedy” for calling BS on your incompetence. Well, Captain BS, 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 pitiable 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 BS, and your political co-conspirators called ‘Congress,’ who are the greedy ones. It is You and your fellow nut cases, 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 dismal political careers. You know it, and you know that we know it. You can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch.”
