Default email to c. levin

sent this to carl levin last night
=============================
carl:

your salary, just like welfare and unemployment payments, comes from taxes levied by the government.

therefore, you are receiving a government handout and are "on the dole".

as a retiree who still pays taxes i ask: if you are receiving this type of public assistance, why is your standard of living and your healthcare coverage better than mine?

Levins answer.


Dear Jim

Thank you for your support on the health care bill, as you know I'm championing the bill in an effort to ensure all people have health care, I will continues to ensure the government forces our liberal agenda down your throat, and will strive to make sure we politicians achieve our goal of total government control.
Again thank you for your support you peon piece of worthless shit.

Yours Truly
His Honor King Shit Levin

here's another response via another venue:
=========
Jim,

Because my "salary " is a mere pittance of my income--less than 10%-- you, as a taxpayer are less than 10% of my concern. I only respond to fat cats and lobbyist where the real money is. As for healthcare, we public servants deserve the best in the world but as for the common man, eat shit and die!

Your Lordship,
Carl Levin

His letter:

Subject: My Hearings Investigating the Financial Crisis
From: senator_levin@levin.senate.gov
To: dreezy_808@hotmail.com
Date: Wed, 14 Apr 2010 06:12:44 -0400

Quote:

Dear Mr. Dyer:

I thought you might be interested to know that, earlier today, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, which I chair, held the first in a series of four hearings aimed at unraveling the causes and consequences of the recent financial crisis.

The crisis was not an act of nature; it was a man-made economic assault that cost millions of jobs, evaporated billions of dollars in retirement savings and put our nation in the worst economic tailspin since the Great Depression.

Extreme greed was the driving force of the crisis. And, it will happen again unless we change the rules.

Our hearings are based on a year-long bipartisan investigation conducted by the Subcommittee. The first hearing focused on the role of high risk loans, using Washington Mutual Bank as a case history. It showed how the bank originated and sold hundreds of billions of dollars in high risk loans to Wall Street in return for big fees, dumping toxic mortgages into the U.S. financial system like polluters dumping poison in a river.

The next three hearings will look at the role of regulators, credit rating agencies, and investment banks in contributing to the financial crisis. The Subcommittee will present additional case histories to examine each stage of the assault.

The goals of the hearings are threefold: to construct a public record of the facts to deepen public understanding of what happened and to hold some of the perpetrators accountable; to inform the current legislative debate about the need for financial reform; and to provide a foundation for building better defenses to protect Main Street from the excesses of Wall Street.

My opening statement from this morning’s hearing goes into more detail and is available at [http://www.levin.senate.gov/newsroom...cfm?id=323765].

Sincerely,
Carl Levin
My response:

Quote:
Mr. Levin,



I feel anything that involves you is a waste of my hard earned tax dollars. You do not need a subcommittee to figure out sending jobs out of this country for cheap labor is why we have lost so many jobs, not to mention the lesser quality product. Obviously the answer you seek is not so simple, nor should it be a government matter but up to the companies to find a way to make a quality, desired product.



Please, stop e-mailing me. Your socialistic agenda is pissing me off.



Sincerely,

Mr. Dyer

Im pretty sure nobody reads the responses. Possibly some assistant/some wanna be socialist lesbian underling. But for sure none of them are given any merit as the right wing crazies don't get it.

Shocking.
every time my wife makes a dumb point i say the same thing to her "Shocking"

and since that e*trade commerical with the baby and he's like "let me show you my shocked face" i bring that up and it is generally returned with a scornful remark like "Up yours, fuck off" and my personal favorite "eat shit and die"

very funny
