  1. David why are the Republicans wasting Americans time with their pettiness? Who care about emails when this country has 1000’s of more important issues going on. The Republicans, along with Congress especially John B. when neither one has done what the American people hired them to do. These people haven’t worked at all not a single day since President Obama. They have fought the President from day one and not one thing have they accomplished in support of the American people. How about stopping RACISM, BIAS INJUSTICE, BIAS IMPRISONMENT, BIAS TREATMENT OF THE HUMAN RACE, POLICE INJUSTICE, JUDICIAL INJUSTICE TOWARDS PEOPLE OF THE HUMAN RACE, BIAS LAWS TOWARDS PEOPLE OF THE HUMAN RACE, HATE CRIMES, EMPLOYMENT, IMMIGRATION (FRAUD)-WELFARE-FOOD STAMPS-MEDICAL-HOUSING-EDUCATION-WIC-UTILITY ASSISTANCE-FREE STATE PROGRAMS AND ASSISTANCE UNDER 15-20 DIFFERENT NAMES, AND THEY ALL HAVE HUSBANDS AND WE AMERICANS ARE TAKING TOTAL CARE OF THESE PEOPLE WHEN WE HAVE VETERANS HAVING TO SLEEP ON THE GROUND BECAUSE THEY CAN’T GET ANY ASSISTANCE FROM THIS COUNTRY. WE CAN TAKE CARE OF PEOPLE THEY CLAIM ARE HERE TO HELP BUT THE TRUTH IS THEY ARE AND HAS MILKED THIS COUNTRY DRY. THEY TAKE ALL THEIR WELFARE MONIES UNDER 15-20 DIFFERENT NAMES WITH HUSBAND AND SPEND THEIR MONEY IN THEIR COUNTRY. ALL OF US DOLLARS ARE GOING ACROSS THIS COUNTRY’S BORDERS AND NOT IN CIRCULATION AS INTENDED. THEY HAVE OUR JOBS WHERE AS TRUE AMERICANS ARE WITHOUT. I AM OW 53 AND I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO START MY FIRST JOB AT THE AGE OF 9, BUT WHAT ABOUT AMERICA’S YOUNG? THE CONSTITUTION CLEARLY STATES “WE THE PEOPLE “OF” THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, NOT THOSE THAT DROP IN AND EXPECT FOR US TO CARE FOR THEM, PAY FOR EVERY BIRTH(12-25)$$MILLIONS, EDUCATE($$PRICELESS)FOOD STAMPS($$MILLIONS) WELFARE FRAUD UNDER 12-25+DIFFERENT NAMES ($$MILLIONS) MEDICAL/MEDICAID FOR 12-25 ($$MILLIONS) HOUSING ($$HUN-THOU) W.I.C.FOR 12-25($$HUN-THOU) UTILITY ASSISTANCE($$THOUSANDS) ALL FREE WHILE AMERICANS STRUGGLE TO KEEP THE BILLS PAID. THEY RECEIVE ALL THESE FREE SERVICES AND COST THEM AND THEIR HUSBANDS WHILE THE HUSBANDS MAINTAIN JOBS/BUSINESS WHILE WE ARE FORCED TO PUT OUR MONEY ON PEOPLE WHOM ARE HERE ONLY FOR THE BENEFITS AND SWEAT OF TAXPAYERS. USING DIFFERENT NAMES BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE TO PROVIDE A SSN OR MARRIAGE LICENSE. THEY DON’T EVEN TRADE WITH AMERICAN BUSINESS UNLESS THEY ARE SWIPING A FOOD STAMP CARD OR FREE TO THEM. EVERY MONTH THEY WILL GO BACK TO MEXICO AND PURCHASE THEIR ITEMS WITH GIVEN TAXPAYERS MONEY. I SAY THIS BECAUSE I AM SICK OF THESE REPUBLICANS/CONGRESS BEING SO OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE ISSUES OF THE TRUE AMERICAN PEOPLE LIKE WHY ARE WE GIVING ANYONE OTHER THAN THE AMERICANS THAT THE CONSTITUTION PROTECT NEVER DID IT SAY PEOPLE THAT TEAR DOWN OUR FENCE, KICK DOWN OUR BACK DOOR, ENTER IN AND TAKE WHAT NOT THEIRS AND EXPECT FOR OTHERS OTHER THAN THEIR COUNTRY TO TAKE TOTAL CARE OF THEM AND ALL THEIR 12-25 CHILDREN THAT THEY CHOSE TO BIRTH. WE AMERICANS HAVE TO PAY WHY THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT H. CLINTON’S EMAIL WHEN THE WORLD ALL HAVE THEM? TELL THEM DAVID THAT AN AMERICAN CITIZEN WHOM GREAT GREAT GREAT GRANDPARENTS DIDN’T WORK SUN UP TO SUN DOWN FOR THEIR WORK AND LABOR TO BE HANDED TO THOSE WHOM HAVE NO INTENTION ON MAKING THIS COUNTRY STRONG BUT TO ONLY BUILD THEIRS UP WHICH LATER WILL BE AND ISSUE TO US ALL. IF THEY WAS DOING THEIR JOBS THEY WOULDN’T HAVE TIME TO FOCUS ON THE “LITTLE BOY” THINGS THAT DOESN’T MATTER TO ANYONE. ASK THEM WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO START DOING WHAT THEY WHERE PAID TO DO AND THAT’S TAKING CARE OF AMERICANS NEEDS. ASK THEM WHAT HAS THEY DONE FOR THE LAST 7+ YEARS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? OH OH LET ME ANSWER THAT N.O.T.H.I.N.G. WE KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE DONE AND REALLY WE THE PEOPLE ARE SICK OF THEM ALL TOGETHER ALL OF THEM. BEING A VETERAN TELL THEM WHY ARE THERE OVER 300,000 HOMELESS, CAN’T GET ANY ASSISTANCE FROM THE VA. ASK THEM WHY WHEN A VETERAN RETURN FROM WAR INJURED AND DISABLED THEY ARE STILL FORCED TO A COMMITMENT WHEN THEY SIGN AT THEIR BEGINNING OF SERVICE TO FULFILL. IF THE WOUNDED SOLIDER CAN’T MEET THE EVERY WEEKEND COMMITMENT(RESERVES) THEY TAKE EVERY DIME FROM THEM CAUSING MOST OF THE HOMELESS/SUICIDE AMONG OUR VETERANS, CHECK IT OUT DAVID A HUGE STORY THEY DON’T WANT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT. THEY GIVE THEIR ALL TO PROTECT AND THEY COME HOME TO NOTHING. MY SONS ARE FIGHTING FOR HELP AND THEY HIRE THESE CHEAP FOREIGN DOCTORS THAT YOU CAN’T UNDERSTAND AND KNOWS NOTHING OF THE NEEDS OF OUR VETERANS AND WOUNDED. THEY TREAT AND CARE FOR EVERYONE BUT OUR VETERANS WHEN THEY COULD BE ON AMERICA’S PRIORITY LIST. WE SPEND TRILLIONS OF ILLEGALS WITHOUT ANY DOCUMENTATION GIVEN BUT WE KNOW OUR TROOPS ARE HOME AND THEY ARE GIVEN THE THIRD DEGREE WHEN THEY SEEK HELP FROM OUR SO-CALLED COUNTRY AND THEY (VETERANS) EARNED WHATEVER THEY NEED. IF AMERICAN SOLDIERS ALL PUT DOWN THEIR ARMS AND LET THE ONES THEY SEEM TO SHOW MORE LOVE WHAT WOULD THIS COUNTRY DO OR THINK? THE REPUBLICANS BETTER GET THEIR STUFF TOGETHER BECAUSE WE HAVE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO BE ADDRESSED. DAVID CAN YOU PLEASE TELL THEM WHAT WE “BABY BOOMERS” WOULD LIKE FOR THESE PEOPLE TO SEE. IF WE RID ALL OF FOOD STAMPS WELFARE, WIC, FREE BIRTHS, MEDICAID/MEDS, FREE HOUSING, FREE EDUCATION, FREE CITIZENSHIP, THEY WOULD FREELY EXCUSE THEMSELVES OUT THIS COUNTRY. IF THEY HAD TO PAY LIKE ALL TRUE AMERICANS THEY WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO DRIVE 2014/2015 VEHICLES WHILE BEING ON WELFARE WITH HUSBANDS WITH JOBS/ILLEGAL BUSINESSES. IF ANYONE DESERVES A FREE RIDE WOULD BE OUR ELDERLY AND VETERANS NOT ONES THAT COME AND EXPECT US TO TOTALLY CARE FOR THE HUSBAND, WIFE, CHILDREN 12-25 AND ALL THEIR DAILY NEEDS AND FOR GENERATION TO GENERATION. EVERYONE IS COMING UP WHILE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN’T SURVIVE. IT’S TIME OUT FOR OUR LEADERS BEING OUTDATED, BENT OVER, “STUCK ON STUPID”. THANK DAVID I ENJOY WATCHING YOU AND THANK YOU LOVE FOR KEEPING IT REAL TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
