Need a raise? Welcome to the real world


Date published: 4/22/2014

Recently, an elected official (who shall remain nameless) stated on TV that he and his constituents are in need of a raise. It seems they have been caught up in our bad economy.

Well, sir, welcome to America. There are millions of American citizens in your position who haven't had a raise for up to 10 years.

Our economy is shrinking millions out of work. Our welfare system is going broke. These people do not have the perks you are entitled to.

Sacrifice. Sell your second home. You say you can't because of the poor housing market? Again, welcome to the America you and your constituents are creating.

Stop giving in to pressure groups and lobbyists. Concentrate on making America a better place for all of us.

This fiasco of changing America is a stupid failure. We were the greatest nation on Earth. We are now ridiculed by most nations.

Keep politics out of your decisions. Bring jobs back to America. Make America a country other nations will look up to.

We are well on the way to becoming a Third World nation. We are hopelessly in debt and taking on more every day. We will one day be bankrupt.

Get a backbone. Let the majority rule again. Do it for your grandchildren.
