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

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— ——— –


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?

The destruction of the middle class is almost at hand

Folks. I have commented on this before and will again. I believe our current administration and politicians have been setting out to destroy our middle class and turn our country into a communist regime – one where there are only two classes; the elite party members and ultra powerful rich and the rest; the peons.

If you want to know where you stand ask yourself, “am I a member of congress?, am I a billionaire, am I one who runs a massive media outlet?” if the answer is NO then you are one of the soon to be ‘former’ middle class Americans. We have people who have been working their way to power positions of power in our great country with the sole goal of creating themselves a place of inscrutable power over every aspect of our lives.

I know I am often called an alarmist right-wing guy. Well I am. I believe in the founding Judeo-Christian concepts our country was founded on. Concepts that provided for an advancement of human kind the world has never known! As mentioned in the opening statement that founded this country;

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with inherent and inalienable rights; that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness;…." Rights by our Creator NOT men!!

We have three waves of massive taxes coming soon. They will not affect the super wealthy – they will always be able to keep their money. They will be just lest incentivized to use it to create jobs and innovations through investments. The new taxes wont affect the super poor either, they will just get even more benefits of our system with out contributing.

The coming taxes and regulations are set to destroy our middle class. Here is the lowdown:

In  just six months, on January 1, 2011, the largest tax hikes in the  history of America will take effect.

They  will hit families and small businesses in three great  waves.

On January  1, 2011, here’s what happens… (read it to the end, so you see  all three waves)…

First Wave:

Expiration  of 2001 and 2003 Tax Relief

In  2001 and 2003, the GOP Congress enacted several tax cuts  for investors,  small business owners, and families.   These  will all expire on January 1, 2011.

Personal  income tax rates will rise.

The  top income  tax rate will rise from 35 to 39.6 percent (this is also the  rate at  which two-thirds of small business profits are taxed).  

The lowest  rate will rise from 10 to 15 percent.  

All  the rates in between  will also rise. 

Itemized  deductions and personal exemptions will  again phase out, which has the same mathematical effect as  higher marginal  tax rates. 

The  full list of marginal rate hikes is  below:

  • The  10% bracket rises to an expanded 15%
  • The  25% bracket rises to 28%
  • The  28% bracket rises to 31%
  • The  33% bracket rises to 36%
  • The  35% bracket rises to 39.6%

Higher  taxes on marriage and family.

The "marriage  penalty" (narrower tax brackets for married couples)  will return from the first dollar of income.   

The  child tax credit  will be cut in half from $1000 to $500 per child.   

The standard  deduction will no longer be doubled for married couples  relative to  the single level.  

The  dependent care and adoption tax credits will  be cut.

The return of the Death  Tax.

This  year only,  there is no death tax.  (Its a  quirk!) For  those dying on or after January 1,  2011, there is a 55 percent top death tax rate on  estates over $1 million.  A person leaving behind two homes,  a business, a  retirement account,  could easily pass along a death tax bill to their loved ones.   Think of the farmers who dont make much money, but their  land, which they purchased years ago with after-tax dollars, is  now worth a lot of money.  Their children will have to sell  the farm, which may be their livelihood, just to pay the estate  tax if they dont have the cash sitting around to pay the tax.   Think about your own familys assets.  Maybe your  family owns real estate, or a business that doesnt make much  money, but the building and equipment are worth $1 million.   Upon their death, you can inherit the $1 million business  tax free, but if they own a home, stock, cash worth $500K on top  of the $1 million business, then you will owe the government  $275,000 cash!  Thats 55% of the value of the assets over $1  million!  Do you have that kind of cash sitting around  waiting to pay the estate tax?

Higher  tax rates on savers and investors.

The  capital gains tax will rise from 15 percent this year to 20  percent in 2011.  

The  dividends tax will rise from 15 percent this year to  39.6 percent  in 2011. 

These  rates will rise another 3.8 percent in  2013.

Second Wave:


There  are over twenty new or higher taxes in Obamacare. Several will  first go into effect on January  1, 2011.  They include:

The  "Medicine Cabinet Tax"

Thanks  to Obamacare, Americans will no longer be able to use  health savings  account (HSA), flexible spending account (FSA), or  health reimbursement  (HRA) pre-tax dollars to purchase  non-prescription, over-the-counter  medicines (except insulin).

The  "Special Needs Kids Tax"

This  provision of Obamacare imposes a cap on flexible spending accounts  (FSAs) of  $2500 (currently, there is no federal government limit).  There is  one group of FSA owners for whom this new cap will be  particularly cruel  and onerous: parents of special needs children.  
There  a
re thousands  of families with special needs children in the United States  , and  many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs  education.

Tuition  rates at one leading school that teaches special needs  children in  Washington , D.C. ( National Child Research Center) can easily  exceed $14,000 per year.

Under  tax rules, FSA dollars can not be used to pay for this type of  special  needs  education.

The  HSA (Health Savings Account) Withdrawal Tax  Hike.

This  provision of Obamacare increases the additional tax on non-medical  early withdrawals from  an HSA from 10 to 20 percent, disadvantaging them relative to  IRAs and  other tax-advantaged accounts, which remain at 10  percent.

Third Wave:

The  Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT)  and Employer Tax Hikes

When  Americans prepare to file their tax returns in January of  2011, they’ll  be in for a nasty surprise-the AMT won’t be held  harmless, and many tax relief provisions will have  expired.

The  major items include:

The  AMT will ensnare over 28 million families, up from 4 million last  year.

According  to the left-leaning Tax Policy Center, Congress’ failure to index  the AMT will lead to an  explosion of AMT taxpaying families-rising from 4 million  last year  to 28.5 million.  These families will have to calculate  their tax  burdens twice, and pay taxes at the higher level.  The AMT  was created  in 1969 to ensnare a handful of taxpayers.

Small  business expensing will be slashed and 50% expensing will  disappear.

Small  businesses can normally expense (rather than slowly-deduct,  or "depreciate")  equipment purchases up to $250,000. 
will  be cut all the way down to $25,000.  Larger businesses  can currently expense  half of their purchases of equipment.  
In January of  2011,
all  of it will have to be "depreciated."

Taxes  will be raised on all types of businesses.

There  are literally scores of tax hikes on business that will  take place.   The biggest is the loss of the "research  and experimentation  tax credit," but there are  many, many others. Combining high marginal tax rates  with the  loss of this tax relief will cost jobs.

Tax  Benefits for Education and Teaching  Reduced.

The  deduction for tuition and fees will not be available. 
Tax  credits
for  education will be limited. 
Teachers will no longer  be able to
deduct  classroom expenses.
Coverdell Education  Savings Accounts
will  be cut.
Employer-provided  educational assistance is
The student loan  interest deduction will be  disallowed
for  hundreds of thousands of families.

Charitable  Contributions from IRAs no longer allowed.

Under  current law, a retired person with an IRA can contribute up  to $100,000  per year directly to a charity from their IRA.  
contribution  also counts toward an annual "required  minimum distribution."   This ability will no longer be  there.

And worse  yet?

Now,  your insurance  will be INCOME on your W2’s!

One  of the surprises we’ll  find come next year, is what follows – – a  little "surprise"  that 99% of us had no idea was included in  the "new  and improved" healthcare legislation . . .  the dupes,  er, dopes, who backed this administration will  be astonished!

Starting  in 2011, (next year folks), your W-2 tax form sent  by your  employer will be increased to show the value of  whatever health  insurance you are given by the company. It does  not matter  if that’s a private concern or governmental body  of some  sort. 
If you’re retired?   So what… your gross
will  go up by the amount of insurance you get.

You  will be required to pay taxes on a large sum of money that  you have  never seen.  Take your tax form you just  finished and  see what $15,000 or $20,000 additional gross does to  your tax  debt.  That’s what you’ll pay next year.  
many,  it also puts you into a new higher bracket so it’s  even worse.

This  is how the government is going to buy insurance for the15% that  don’t have  insurance and it’s only part of the tax  increases.

Not  believing this???  Here is a research of  the summaries…..

On  page 25 of 29: TITLE IX REVENUE PROVISIONS-  SUBTITLE A: REVENUE OFFSET PROVISIONS-(sec. 9001,  as modified by sec.  10901) Sec.9002  "requires  employers to  include in the W-2 form of each employee the aggregate cost  of applicable  employer sponsored group health coverage that  is excludable  from the employees gross income."

People  have the right to know the truth because an election  is coming  in  November!

We need a guy like this

This country needs a person like this [Czech President Vaclav Klaus] at the helm of the United States. And not some leftist academics who have never run anything besides theories – and debunked ones at that.

I have been following his career for a while.
He grew up under communist rule – he KNOWS it and knows it does NOT work.

He has been and outspoken critic of the bogus idea of anthropogenic ‘global warming’. I use that term because it has now been soundly refuted and exposed as a the fraud it is by real science – the science that was silenced in the name of political and economic expediency of the left. And he is a champion of freedom and capitalism.

He has continually spoken out against ‘cap and trade’. This speech is a must read. It should be, in fact, read by all young students who are still being hammered with bogus leftist ideologies daily in our grade and middles schools!

Excerpt: "We should not deceive ourselves. Cap-and-trade scheme is a government intervention par excellence, not a “market solution.”

Here he is being interviewed by Glen Beck.

Speaking on “Killing democracy via global warming sham”

And Czech President Klaus: “Global Warming Not Science, but a ‘New Religion’

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

We are steaming toward marxist dictatorship

I have to say with out trying to be to vulgar:

HOLY F#CK!!!! What country are we living in???
Call For Informants: If You Oppose Obamacare, Even in ‘Casual Conversation,’ the White House Wants to Know About It!

If you see anybody publicly opposing President Obama’s plan to implement a government-centric overhaul of the health care system, the White House wants you to report that person (or persons) ASAP.

From the White House website:
[There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often tra More..vel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.]

Emphasis added. Of course, as we’ve seen in the health care debate to date, the term “disinformation” is used by the Obama White House as a catchall to describe any opposition to the President’s push for single-payer, government-run health care — meaning the White House wants to be informed of any forwarded emails or blog posts or any “casual conversations” that could be taken as opposition to their health care overhaul plan.

You’ll have to excuse me, I need to go get more ammo now.
