How many times have retired Democrats talking to me made fun of the Tea-party and Republicans? Some of these people are drawing a $3,000 monthly pension. Don’t they realize if we don’t rein in spending and bring down the deficit they could lose that fat check? And use people with our little Social Security check could lose too. They don’t realize we are all in the same boat.
To show how foolish they are they even think F.D. Roosevelt was the President that started Social Security. It’s just not true. It was Herbert Hoover that drew up the bill that started Social Security and he was a Republican. The Democrats jumped on the bandwagon and tried to take credit. Also Roosevelt was a Progressive, which is first cousin to Communism. They are the ones on the wrong side (Democrats). So they should not look down their nose at me.
I was raised up on a cotton mill village and have not gotten above my raising. I appreciate textiles today for the food I had to eat. And I also have to say I appreciate my parents for the hard work and the great love they showed for me. None of us in East Rockingham will ever forget. We thought we were rich but I guess it was all that love.
