History Lesson on Social Security

Social Security Card

This is a little history lesson that you won’t see in the main-stream media–now or ever.

Make a copy and learn these facts–they’re relevant!!!

Your Social Security

Be sure and show it to your kids. They need a little history lesson on what’s what and it doesn’t matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are facts.

Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes. Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message was removed. The cards are not supposed to be laminated.

An old Social Security card with the "NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION" message.

Our Social Security card

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social

Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary,

No longer Voluntary

2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual

Incomes into the Program,

Now 7.65% on the first $90,000

3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from

their income for tax purposes each year,

No longer tax deductible

4.) That the money the participants put into the independent ‘Trust Fund’ rather than into the

general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security

Retirement Program, and no other Government program, and,

Under Johnson the money was moved to The General Fund and Spent

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

Under Clinton & Gore Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month —

and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to ‘put

away’ — you may be interested in the following:

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the

general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and Senate.

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— —

Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— —–

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the ‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the  US

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— –

AND MY FAVORITE:

Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?

A: That’s right!  Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.

Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The

Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!

———— — ———— ——— —– ———— ——— ———

Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

The worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it!

If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will

evolve. Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully sure of what isn’t so.

But it’s worth a try. How many people can YOU send this to?

Transparent as mud

Remember the campaign and the inauguration speeches – "most open and transparent administration ever…"?

Well we all know that it has NOT been the case. In fact this administration has made more backroom deals than any group of wiseguys ever have and certainly more than any other administration in our history.

Sadly the mainstream media are completely complicit in this too. And to further end any appearance or attempt to hide that fact that the administration is NOT transparent they are doing this:

His words on video:

7 Broken Promises:
1. Make Government Open and Transparent
2. Make it "Impossible" for Congressmen to slip in Pork Barrel Projects
3. Meetings where laws are written will be more open to the public (republicans shut out)
4. No more secrecy
5. Public will have 5 days to look at a Bill
6. You’ll know what’s in it (Republican Senators didn’t know)
7. We will put every pork barrel project online

Will anyone in the mainstream media ever call him to task on any of this? I doubt it.

I hope this fall and in two years we will be able to prune the tree of liberty by replacing him and his cohorts. Then maybe we can start to undue the massive damage to our Republic that has already been done.

Confronting the lies of man made global warming

I’ve sent out comments and links on this before and was going to take the time and put them all in one spot here.

However looks like Robert A. Hall on his blog “The Old Jarhead” put together one of the best posts I’ve seen in a while.
He has loads of links with facts and commnetary.

I recently had a discussion with someone who was trying to tell me that even though ALL the data underlying the whole ‘theory of man made global warming’ was has been proven to be lies and fabrications at the very least completely incorrect, it did not change the ‘fact’ as he put it that all this ‘bad’ stuff would happen if humans didn’t stop blah, blah blah.

I had to try and get him to understand that if the basis for his theory, the underlying structure and underpinnings, were false, then EVERY thing drawn from them is also false!
He could not understand that! It seems most of our country has lost the ability to reason based on facts.

Even with undeniable facts and science it is hard to overcome a dogma that has been brainwashed into the minds of nearly an entire generation. And unbelievably, is still preached by the media and ruling elite in an effort to assert more control over us and reduce our freedoms and liberties.

When I get the chance I will also add some other good info but for now many thanks to Sgt. Hall.
Well have a read, gather some ammo (facts) for the fight for truth:

Costs of government run health care

Costs of government run health care.

The idea that the government could effectively run anything better than private enterprise in a free market is absurd.
Here is a great quote from Thomas Sowell, the noted economist:
“There is a fundamental difference between reducing costs and simply shifting costs around, like a pea in a shell game at a carnival.”
The entire article is here:
From Thomas Sowell and should be read by all!

And here is more of what you will be paying for!
Aborton Tax

What’s the score after 6 months?

Sure makes me fell “warm” all over, how about you?
Actually more like ‘fired up’.

27. Announced nationalized health care “reform” that will strip seniors of their Medicare, cut pay of physicians, increase taxes yet another $1 trillion, and put everyone on rationed care with government bureaucrats deciding who gets care and who doesn’t..

Bloomberg: Daschle says, “Health care reform will not be pain free. Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them,” while former Colorado Governor Dick Lamm says seniors have “a duty to die.”

If this does not sufficiently raise your ire, just remember that the President, Senators, and Congressmen have their own special gold plated health care AND RETIREMENT plan which is guaranteed the remainder of their lives and they are not subject to this new law if they pass it.

This was over 50 years ago and is true now

This cartoon should be watched by children and adults everywhere.
Right now!

This is well worth the time to see the whole thing.

Adolf Hitler once said “It is so fortunate for rulers that men are fools”, and that statement is just as true today as it was then. The American people voted Obama into office just like the Germans voted for Hitler…. human nature never changes.

Nancy Pelosi lies so much she can’t stop.

Nancy Pelosi is going around saying the same old crap, “Bush lied, I didn’t know, it’s all the republicans fault….” etc.

Well here she is, getting caught in her latest BOLD FACE LIES about not knowing about our interogation techniques.

Why won’t the mainstream media show this? Oh yeah, I forgot… it is against their religion.

Techniques which I should add have saved LOT’S of American lives!!

Misguided legislation.

Showing how ignorant and misguided politicians really are:
http://i.gizmodo.com/5196924/texas-just-now-bans-vista-from-government-computers
note the line:
“because one state senator has heard… of the many reports of problems with Vista.”
This ‘tard has no idea how to use technology and certainly should have no business in legislating on it!!
I just point this out to make another point about how out of touch elected officials really are.
I am willing to bet that not one politician in congress has ever done their own taxes, started a small business from nothing (no help from rich daddy), shops at the local super market regularly for groceries, or even pays their own bills!!
Time for a political enema I say!
If we don’t flush these people out they are going to give it to us!

Nanny Stater’s

IncredibleThe ‘nanny-staters’ are everywhere.
From the top office to the local states.
http://taxdollars.freedomblogging.com/2009/03/23/state-considers-ban-on-big-screen-tvs/12993/
It is time we removed all elected officials and showed them they are not there for their asinine self serving purposes but to represent US.
This idea of legislating behavior and beliefs is getting out of hand.
It has been tried before, check history; Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, Communist Eastern Block (USSR), Imperial Japan, Monarchical Europe.
Controlling leads to destitution and eventually revolution!!!
Freedom and liberty have lead to the greatest (for now) country the world has ever seen. With the most advances in human kind in such a short time.
Let’s do something to protect our country.
