JESSE JACKSON JR. TO GRAB $8,700 PER MONTH IN DISABILITY, PLUS PENSION IN PRISON
Breitbart.com ^ | 15 Aug 2013

Posted on 08/16/2013 12:23:05 PM PDT by drewh

Convicted Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) is scheduled to receive $8,700 per month in government disability pay, as well as a partial federal pension of $45,000.

That generous $8,700 in disability comes thanks to Jackson’s sudden development of a “mood disorder” as the federal government began looking to indict him.

Jackson, who was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison, had no history of mental illness during his prior 17 years in Congress.

Rev. Jesse Jackson has defended his son’s claims of mental illness, stating to the court, “This time a year ago I thought we may have lost him.”

I didn’t, but ever since the clown and his cohorts have taken over the government, I have a mood disorder.....it is called the “pissed off” syndrome. It is truly affecting my mood and I want my disability.

Well, he is a liberal right? We all know that liberalism IS a mental illness.

Wha? How the hell can I be paid this much for my mood disorder?

I just deal with it. That kind of money might make it feel a lot better rather than slaving away at work!

We’ll never know the true story of why the Feds went after Jessie Jackson, Jr. Was this Obama slapping down Papa Jessie Jackson to show him who is boss? Did Junior say the wrong thing in public? Or is Junior being used as an example to other politicians in DC that no one is safe?

It can’t just be the improper use of campaign funds he pleaded guilty to. Everyone in DC does that.

Perhaps this is why the Republicans are all running scared and doing Obama’s bidding. Could it be they’ve been helping themselves to their own campaign stashes and now that Jessie Jr. has been used as an example they know Obama and Holder can nail them at any time?

Why would we think the Social Security Administration isn't denying claims made by registered Republicans based on their political affiliation, but the IRS is?

EVERY agency under 0bama is sticking it to conservatives for any application or claim to any agency under him. IRS, SSA, EPA, etc. 'Targeting' isn't only being done at the IRS. ALL agencies are targeting conservatives.

He's/they're fortunate that the general populace hasn't developed AMS (Angry Mob Syndrome), yet.

My wife suggested I stop reading stories like this because my BP is way too high and she attributes my disorder to how much things like this infuriate me while causing the neighbors to close their windows to avoid my all to frequent usage of foul language.

“I truly despise these people and the people that facilitate their acquisition of power.”

Throughout history the only sure-fire way to deal with a corrupt political ruling class was to simply kill them; no pressure from exiles, no insurgency from their supporters...it is just finished.
