Warren Buffett’s Solution Ends the Deficit in 5 Minutes!

Sunday, April 26th, 2015

Granted this was written a couple years ago but is just as valid as it was in 2012

Warren Buffett, “I could end the deficit in 5 minutes,” he told CNBC. “You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election. The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971…before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc. Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land…all because of public pressure.

Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise. In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.

*Congressional Reform Act of 2011*

1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term’s), then go home and back to work.

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive the message. Maybe it is time.

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!! If you agree with the above, pass it on.

Two Minute Solution To Government Shutdown

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

I don’t normally get involved with ranting about politics, but I have a common sense solution to the government shutdown a 5th grader could understand.

It will be equally unacceptable to any politician, and that’s exactly the point!

With congress’ popularity at an all time low, maybe now’s the time to get a constitutional amendment through – although all politicians will oppose it, with enough popular support maybe it could get done?

What do you think?

Flooding In Colorado

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

We’ve had 6.5″ of rain in the last 24 hours here in Boulder County.  This first photo is of a street in Lyons which is now a river . . .




A road near my house in Lafayette collapsed and a bring built only a few years ago collapsed.



Tornado At DIA Airport in Denver

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

Who ever heard of a tornado touching down on an airport runway? If you are coming to Denver for the Empower Network event in July, take comfort in that I’ve lived here for 15 years and we’ve never had a tornado before . . .

See you all in July!

If you’ve ever been to Denver, that blue horse on the lower left of the photo is actually huge. That’s puts the size of the tornado into proportion.

The good news is that no one was hurt! So, enjoy the power of mother nature!
