establish a political advantage for a particular party or group by
manipulating geographic boundaries to create partisan,
incumbent-protected districts. The resulting district is known as
a gerrymander; however, that word can also refer to the
process. Gerrymandering may be used to achieve desired electoral
results for a particular party, or may be used to help or hinder a
particular demographic, such as a political, racial, linguistic,
religious or class group"
Congressman Mike Kelly Has A Lot To Smile
About...He Has Been Just Been ALMOST Guaranteed Another Term
In Congress...Christmas Comes Early For The Kelly Family!
Well...so what!...this man is not invincible
folks!...the current Congress is the worst ever! The American
people know it! With an approval rating approaching single
digit numbers, there has to be a break in the grid lock.
Congressman Kelly campaigned on being a job creator, yet he found
time to gather with his comrades in Congress during this past
summer's "debt ceiling debate" to create havoc with the stock
market and provide no additional fuel to a economy teetering on
the verge of a comeback.
The sad irony here is that the 3rd
Congressional District is the home to a wide variety of
residents...while there is sure to be confirmed Democratic and
Republican voters, there are also Independents and those who
never, ever vote under any circumstances! But all these
residents have one thing in common and that is their personal
So, for Congressman Kelly to fall into to
lock step with House Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Cantor
while adhering to the mantra espoused by Senate Minority Leader,
McConnell, who would like to insure that President Obama never
gets a chance at a second term, this path is causing real
headaches for regular, hard working Americans who are relying on
401K's to provide a moderate retirement income! These are
the people...regular Americans who could very well turn out next
November to cast their most important vote in American History! a
vote against Mike Kelly...

Thank you for contacting me regarding our
country’s debt and the most recent passage of the Budget Control

this important issue.
“America has turned an important corner.
After decades of government growth and out-of-control spending,
the debate in Washington has changed from ‘how much can we spend?’
to focus on ‘how can we stop spending money we don’t have?’”
My colleagues and I in the House have
passed legislation that answered the call to rein in spending and
reform our broken political system. We got rid of earmarks;
passed a budget for fiscal year 2011 with the largest spending
cuts in recent history; put forward common sense reforms to
preserve our entitlement programs; and, most recently, passed the
Cut, Cap and Balance Act, of which I was an original co-sponsor
and would have reduced the federal deficit by more than $4
trillion, the amount leading credit rating agencies said was
needed if America was going to avert a credit downgrade.
In the 2010 election, the American people
told Washington that enough was enough. The days of reckless,
wasteful spending were numbered, and the time for fiscal
discipline and government accountability was at hand.
I have done my best to honor the will of
the American people and to right the ship for this and future
Having said that, with only one-half of
one-third of the federal government, the House can only do so
much. This is not an excuse; it’s reality.
The Budget Control Act cuts government
spending more than it increases the debt limit; implements
spending caps to restrain future spending; advances the cause of a
Balanced Budget Amendment; prevents a job-killing national
default; rejects tax hikes; and keeps entitlement reform on the
table. While imperfect, it’s a start. We will and we must
continue our steady campaign against our nation’s $14.3 trillion
debt and the spending addiction that got us here in the first
I would like to thank you and all my
constituents who raised their voices during this important debate;
you have been heard. We must continue to work together to hold
Washington accountable and demand that the government live within
its means, just as you and your family and neighbors have learned
Again, thank you for contacting me
regarding the Budget Control Act. Please do not hesitate to
contact me or my staff if I can be of assistance in the future.

How can The Raptor count the ways that this
ridiculous form letter is an insulting piece of "shit"...you
should be aware by now that Congressman Kelly attempted to
energize his Tea Party Associates by giving a gung-ho speech
shortly before the debt ceiling debate reached a conclusion by
asking them to "Kick the shit" out of the Democrats...
The Raptor sent three email messages to
Congressman Kelly asking him to raise the debt ceiling, let the
Bush era Tax Cuts expire and leave the Health Care Legislation
stand. So, this is what I got in return. I wouldn't be
surprised if every Republican/Tea Party legislator sent out the
same stupid form letter, cause I got two of them - exactly the
How sad this world has become when a fool
like Congressman Kelly can be "proud" of his accomplishments...If
he wasn't such a potato, he would realize that all the
grandstanding over spending had a direct effect on the share
prices of the stocks and mutual funds which make up the retirement
plans of many average Americans. The Raptor enjoyed an
instantaneous drop of about $5,000.00 on my meager portfolio.
But that is just collateral damage right Congressman?
Maybe it's time for elected officials to
recognize that Federal Spending is a fact of life. So you
want to cut entitlements?...entitlements for little old ladies and
disable veterans? Entitlements for young kids attempting to
educate themselves into a better life? How sad it must be to
be a tone deaf sack who is only concerned with putting his big
head up the ass of scoffoza's like Dick Cheney and Mitch McConnell.
If there is a way to recall Congressman Mike
Kelly - The Raptor is all for that. The Easter Bunny is
probably available to take his place...

That's going to be tough...someone is going

initiatives are about the spirit of compromise.
It's common knowledge that many corporations
are "sitting on cash" so as a method of compromise - maybe it is

Well...consider the Pennsylvania 3rd Congressional District's
newly elected Representative, The Honorable Mike Kelly...
|Pictured Here Is
Congressman Mike Kelly - He Is Bold and He Is Brash And He
Wants To "Kick The Shit" Out Of The Democrats
Congressman Kelly has been
seen on the news shows on several occasions over the past week
asking as an apparent spokesman for The Tea Party. This
third party is conveniently hiding behind a Republican
Banner...yet the members seem to be practicing a platform which
is radically different from that of the Republican Party which
at present is led by Speaker Of The House, John Boehner...
|Congressman John Boehner
(R) Ohio In A Familiar Teary Eyed Pose...Attempting To Use
Emotion To Sell His Agenda Of Lower Taxes For The
Wealthiest Amongst Us...
Congressman Kelly campaigned
in this district on a "jobs first" initiative but as of this
date, his posturing has created zero jobs...anywhere.
Congressman Kelly needs to head back to Butler Pennsylvania
where he can hang out at his Hyundi Dealership, selling Tojo to
the American people.
So...what to do...what to
do...well, it's time to start the campaign in
earnest...Congressman Kelly (and John Boehner/Eric Cantor) need
to go and some time needs to be spent letting The Bush Era Tax
Cuts to expire. The Raptor can take it...believe me...I do
not for one minute think that an increase in the marginal rate
from 35% to 39% is going to hurt anyone. In addition, if
my marginal rate were to increase I am willing to take that
Someone needs to initiate this

Day 266 - July 28th, 2011 - Originally
Mike Kelly here again...The Raptor has been
peppering my office with emails as of late expressing his
displeasure with this whole debt ceiling debate...here is his
message from July 27th...
"Hello Congressman Kelly, Please add my name to the list of your
constituents who would like you to increase the debt ceiling, in
addition I am encouraging you to vote to allow the Bush era tax
cuts to expire and I do not want you to repeal the health care
provisions. It is disingenuous for House Speaker Boehner to
mention recent Budgetary issues such as Health Care Reform and the
Obama Stimulus Plan without acknowledging the various plans he
voted for including: Medicare Prescription Drug...2 Wars In Middle
East...first stimulus plan and the introduction of Bush era tax
cuts. I sent an email yesterday too - I elected to communicate in
this fashion rather than call your office...thanks"
Here is The Raptor's message from July 28th,
"This is my third message to you in as
many days. As one of your constituents I would respectfully
request that you vote to increase the debt ceiling which is being
debated at this time. In addition, I feel strongly that you should
vote to allow the Bush era tax cuts to expire
It has come to my attention that certain
members of Congress sat in on the showing of a feature film
recently. As I know you are a serious business man I have to
believe that you avoided this obvious politically motivated
Your constituents deserve better than to
send you to Congress to fight over debt ceilings when you
campaigned as a job creator. Can you provide me with some
statistical data on how many jobs you have created during your
tenure...thanks in advance for your timely response"
Can you believe this?...all I wanted to do
was get out of that miserable office at my auto dealership and
enjoy some Washington DC amenities...Golf at
Congressional...dining on the Mall...meet and greets at the
Potomac and instead I have to listen to this crap?...BTW due to
the debt ceiling debate and the intense heat in DC, I have not
created a single job in weeks...maybe after Labor Day...
Day 133 - March 15th, 2011 - Originally
Mike Kelly here...The Raptor has graciously
allowed me to put in a byline today in celebration of the American
Dream...the jobs report has just come out and unemployment is
lower than it was when I got elected on a promise of creating
jobs...and viola!...look what happened...jobs are being created
all over the place, especially in the service industry.
So you see folks, I wasn't kidding...with Speaker Boehner's tears,
my good looks and a page of talking points, the Republican Party
has made America great again...yippee!
Day 29 - December 1st, 2010 - Originally
Mike Kelly was in the news yesterday.
It seems that Congressman Kelly is so cheesed off about health
care, that he has publically stated that he wont be enrolling in
the Congressional Health Care Plan but will instead continue to
subscribe to the plan sponsored by his auto dealership. The
news story does not go into great detail about other individuals
connected to this astute businessman. For starters, the
article didn't elaborate on how staffers to Kelly's offices will
be covered. Nor did it discuss how Kelly's spouse and
children will be covered...Consider this...
One of Congressman Kelly's staffers is
Melanie Brewer. She is the spouse of Randy Brewer. Mr.
Brewer as you may recall was at one time a radio talk show host
who disdains everything Democratic Party. So by marriage,
Randy Brewer is eligible to enroll in the Congressional Health
Care Plan...if Tea Party gasbag, Melanie Brewer, elects to get
coverage. Isn't that ironic gang...here is a situation where
individuals who are "against" health care coverage will in all
likelihood enroll in that coverage.
This is as they say...the gift that keeps on
giving...BTW Congressman Kelly, The Raptor saw a sign at Tim
Horton's the other day...they are hiring...by gum...The Raptor can
see a light at the end of the tunnel!...Too bad it's actually a
Day 9 - November 11th, 2010 - Originally
The Raptor tried calling Mike Kelly to see
how the job creating was going, but Kelly has gone on a
vacation...is The Raptor surprised?...hardly...that's what elected
officials (especially Republicans) do most frequently...However,
Kelly has no doubt already met his first lobbyists (probably the
NRA and The Petroleum Producers Guild) and his reelection coffer
has no doubt be influxed by some much needed cash...number of jobs
Day 2 - November 4th, 2010 - Originally
New Speaker Oh The House, John Boehner, is
walking on cloud nine...once a small business man concerned about
the erosion of "core values" in America...he has worked tirelessly
in Congress since 1991...During his tenure, Speaker Boehner has
paid particular attention to preserving core values and as a
result, the number of jobs he has created as a Congressman
Day 1 - November 3rd, 2010 - Originally
Candidate Mike Kelly maintained that he is a
job creator and this must be true. His Auto Dealership in
Butler, Pennsylvania is centrally located and services several
large cities in both Pennsylvania and Ohio. The dealership
unfortunately has lost a key employee as Representative Kelly will
have to leave the business to concentrate all of his efforts into
job creation in Washington D.C.
Since Representative Kelly has left one job
and started a new job...the net effect on jobs created
