And:
It was 76 years ago today that President Franklin Roosevelt signed into law the creation of social security. 
It was one of the most important steps that this or any country has ever taken to make sure that our seniors can live a secure retirement. That’s mattered to Americans of every age, who could start businesses or change jobs knowing that they had a baseline in place to protect them in their old age. 
I wish social security were having a happier birthday. But, unfortunately, it’s at risk. And it’s up to us to protect it. 
We saw what happened in the debt ceiling deal. Steve Daines’ tea party allies in Congress threatened to force the United States government into default unless they got a radical re-working of the social contract. 
While they didn’t succeed, for now, their agenda is clear: end social security as we know it. And it’s up to us to stop them. 
I’m raising my voice as loudly as possible to make sure that Montanans understand what’s at stake for social security in this debate: that if Steve Daines and his tea party allies win, we lose. 
And now I need your help to make sure I can be that voice in Congress for social security. Your contribution will help me be Montana’s one voice in the House of Representatives – and make sure we’re protecting a secure retirement for all Montanans. 
Sincerely, Kim 
P.S. I served meals to more than 500 seniors today at the MontanaFair in Billings, and saw the faces of so many who are depending on us to protect social security. For their sake, I hope you’ll support my campaign.

And the rivers shall open for the righteous someday...

I was walking with my brother,



And he wondered, oh how I am.
Said what I believe in my soul
Ain't what I see with my eyes,
And there's no turning back this time.

I am a patriot, and I love my country,
Because my country is all I know.
Wanna be with my family,
People who understand me.
I got no place else to go.

I was walking with my girlfriend.
She looked so fine, I said
"Baby, what's on your mind?"
Said I want to run like the lions
Released from their cages...
Released from the rages
Burning in my soul tonight.

I am a patriot, and I love my country,
Because my country is all I know.

And I ain't no communist,
And I ain't no socialist,
And I ain't no capitalist,
And I ain't no imperialist,
And I ain't no democrat,
Sure ain't no republican either,
I only know one party,
And that is freedom.
I am...I am...I am...

I am a patriot, and I love my country,
Because my country is all I know.
