Jesse Jackson Jr. to Receive $8,700 Per Month in Disability,

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." So, Jesse Jackson, Jr. 17-year veteran of the US Congress, suddenly gets a "mood disorder" (about the same time he learned he was to be indicted) and is going to prison for 2.5 years. Because his "mood disorder" was so severe, he has become disabled and will receive $8700 per month as a disability payment as well as $45000 a year from his congressional pension, a total of about $150K per year. Is this a great country or what?
By the way, many of us have had a rather substantial "mood disorder disability" ever since Obama got elected in 2008. We have not committed any felonies, have not been convicted and sentenced to prison. But we get a higher and higher tax bill every year; the privilege of paying for the retirement and support of con men and felons like Jackson; and the pleasure of watching our federal deficit grow every day of the year.
How long are you honest, working Americans going to tolerate this corruption?
BTW, did you know that for years Nelson Mandela was head of the ANC (African National Congress) -- a Communist Terrorist Organization that killed thousands in South Africa. The ANC actually killed more Blacks that Whites, because any Blacks who opposed them were murdered. His wife Winnie was one of the most brutal and aggressive of the organization. She and the communist revolutionists of the ANC killed hundreds by applying "the necklace" -- a gas soaked automobile tire that was put around the neck and set on fire to kill those who opposed them. Winnie also served prison time for the murder of a young child. Nelson Mandela is recorded on film advocating "the necklace" for their opponents. Now tell me honestly: Are you aware of any of this? Has the American news media mentioned that fact this week? Have you looked at South Africa since Mandela's people took over? Cape Town is reported to be the murder, rape, AIDS, HIV capital of the world. I can't confirm the data, but if it is not Number One, it comes close. But we have to admit that Mandela smiled a lot and was really smooth, a lot like his close friend Bill Clinton.
