John Boehner wants Americans to work until they die

Breaking News Playboy just offered Sarah Palin $1 million to pose nude in the January issue. Michelle Obama got the same offer from National Geographic. ~ Republican Gary Frago. "I don't see where there's a story, I'm not the only one that does it," he said.
But, Republicans don't just hate black people (although the Elena Kagan hearings show Republicans hate even dead black persons) they hate everyone who doesn't own their own jet.

John Boenher wants Americans to work until 70. Now the only reason Americans live that long is the long hard slough Liberals fought; for benefits, health care, reduced working hours and non-slave wages. And Republicans fought against those measures every time. And are still seeking to eliminate them.

If Republicans had their druthers Americans would work from the age 12 to 70 or until you die. Upon reaching 70 Republicans would then have you killed.
No, you're not supposed to retire when you're 55. You sound to me like you are totally capable of still working. People are retiring now at 50 and 55 and so forth when they are still capable of working. According to the tables at 55, you've got 22 years left... ~ Rush Limbaugh, [Crooks and Liars]
The Wealthy have total control over the Republican Party. Remember Don Blankenship, the Massey Energy CEO, owner of the Upper Big Branch mine which killed 29 miners? Blankenship deliberately subverted safety inspections (495 violations in 2009), suggested firing mine supervisors who pointed out unsafe conditions and stopped his mine workers from unionizing. But he knew he couldn't accomplish his plans Coal Production via Dead Miners without having bought Republicans to provide him political cover:
That company’s chief executive, Don L. Blankenship, spent about $3 million in 2004 to defeat an incumbent justice, Warren R. McGraw, a Democrat, and to elect his opponent, Mr. Benjamin, a Republican who is now the court’s chief justice. Mr. Blankenship contributed only $1,000, the statutory maximum, directly to Mr. Benjamin’s campaign. Most of the rest of his spending was on slashing television advertisements opposing Justice McGraw.
The 2010 Republican platform is Death to the Middle Class and Poor and they've listed several planks to their platform: Eliminate the EPA (allow Massey and Don Blankenship kill more Miners and BP kill more Oil Rig Workers and pollute Lake Michigan), steal your Social Security (take that money and TARP it to Wall Street), oppose Mine Safety Legislation, repeal Health Care Reform and deny Americans medical care.

I was worried about the 2010 elections and the Republicans taking control of Congress but as the Republicans Platform becomes clearer I'm now more worried about Conservative Terrorists Resorting to the Bullet Box and 2nd Amendment Remedies and Steve King's outright call for terrorism and kidnapping via "Deport A Liberal". Conservatives always resort to violence when thwarted by Democracy and murder low level government workers at the IRS, or assassinate police officers and museum guards.

Gene, the Palin centerfold could have quite a market, if sold in dart stores.

Boner's scheme id flaccid on delivery.

The GOP platform is enough to make me sick. What is mist frightening is that half of the voters will walk into the polls in November with absolutely no idea what's in that platform.

I could sit on my ass in front of a microphone in my house spewing lies till I was well into my seventies.


These shitheads are so detached from the realities of Working America it makes me wonder if they've ever ventured from the confines of their country clubs and gated communities.

I just wish we could have a mandatory retirement at 70 for the US Senate. Sure, we'd miss Jay Rockefeller and Bernie Sanders, but it would be worth it.

You can quit work at 25 if you've save enough money. If you're lukcy enough to be a government worker you can retire at 50...

Nobody is forcing anyone to continue working.
