|Congress is trying to increase the retirement age to 67 and
already thinking about, 69 or 70, in the future.
Hell, I'm 58. I can't stand for 30 minutes, much less 8 hours and, 40
to 60 hours, a week is killing me, how about you?
Our congress has arranged things, so they can retire at 50 with
full dental, and medical for them and their families, covered by
A Federal Health Care Plan, paid for by us! IMAGINE THAT...
Some people, you might have heard of...

|Called the Liberty Bell of the West, the Kaskaskia Bell is older
than the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. Kaskaskia was the center of
French colonial administration for the Middle Mississippi River
Valley during the 18th century. The 650-pound bell was a gift to
The Mission of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and
the town's citizens from King Louis XV of France. The bell was
cast in La Rochelle, France in 1741.The bell was shipped
from France to New Orleans and then pulled up the Mississippi
River by ropes on a bateau, arriving in 1743. On July 4, 1778,
during the American Revolution, the bell was rung to celebrate
the liberation of Kaskaskia from the British by the American
forces of George Rogers Clark and his Long Knives.
And you thought, "The Liberty Bell" was in Philadelphia.
