TRUTH about your SOCIAL SECURITY ...

Your Social Security

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this. It's easy to check out, if you don't believe it.
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!!!

Our Social Security

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%

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?

AND MY FAVORITE:

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!


And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it!

If enough people read 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 blog to?

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.

AND CONGRESS GIVES THEMSELVES 100% RETIREMENT
FOR ONLY SERVING ONE TERM!!!


A government big enough to give you everything you want,
is strong enough to take everything you have.

-Thomas Jefferson

IN HIS OWN WORDS .....



If you were ever in doubt about HIS beliefs ...
(click here ^^^^^^^^^)
watch these video clips of OBAMA's own words

Let's RECAP ...



1. The American people elect a president with a total of 142 days experience as a US Senator from the most politically corrupt state in America whose governor is ousted from office. The President's first official act is to order the close of Gitmo and make sure terrorists' civil rights are not violated. (He screwed up!)

2. The U.S. Congress rushes to confirm an Attorney General, Eric Holder, whose law firm we later find out represents seventeen Gitmo Terrorists. (An honest mistake?)

3. The CIA Boss appointee, Leon Panetta, has absolutely no experience, has a daughter Linda, we find out, who is a true radical anti-American activist and a supporter of all the Anti-American regimes in the western hemisphere. (There were socio-economic factors involved!)

4. We got the second most corrupt American woman (Pelosi is #1) as Secretary of State; bought and paid for by big business. (You can put lipstick on a pig, but it still stinks!)

5. We got a Tax Cheat for Treasury Secretary who did not properly file his own taxes for 12 years. (He misspoke!)

6. A Commerce Secretary nominee who withdrew due to corruption charges (Another honest mistake?)

7. A Tax cheat nominee for Chief Performance Officer who withdrew under
charges. (Hmmm...another screw-up?)

8. A Labor Secretary nominee who withdrew under charges of unethical conduct. (Ok, maybe this person was just plain stupid.)

9. A Secretary HHS nominee (Daschle) who withdrew under charges of cheating on his taxes. (I'm running out of excuses for these idiots!)

10. Multiple appointments of former lobbyists after an absolute campaign statement that no lobbyists would be appointed. (I need a drink!)

All this occurred just during the first three weeks... but who's counting?

America is being run by the modern-day Three Stooges; Barrack, Nancy and Harry and they are still trying to define stimulus..."it's spending!"

The congress passes the $800,000,000,000 (that's $800 billion) pork-loaded spending bill where the government gives you a smidgen of your tax dollars ($13 per week), making you feel so good about yourself [stimulated], that you want to run out to Wal-Mart and buy a new Chinese-made HDTV and go home and watch Telemundo!

Only in America, what a country....

Pray for our country. Here's the good news though - Obama took Air Force One to Denver to sign the stimulus package, wasting as much as 10,000 gallons of fuel OR 24 JOBS FOR ONE YEAR. Don't you just love this?

Speaking of praying, Obama has now been president for seven months and yet he & wife (first lady) Michelle, the Christian family they claim to be, have not attended church since the inauguration. He sure must miss the good old Reverend Wright.

In these times 'I'll keep my God, my freedom, my gun and my money. Anyone that supports this insanity can keep "THE CHANGE".'

Do we even need to mention Van Jones, Valarie Jerrett, John Podesta, SEIU or ACORN?

This is only 11 months into his 4 year term - boy, is this fun or what?

Let's look at the connections ...

Thank You Andy for speaking out ...



Andy Rooney says:

I don't believe in Santa Claus, but I'm not going to sue somebody for singing a Ho-Ho-Ho song in December. I don't agree with Darwin , but I didn't go out and hire a lawyer when my high school teacher taught his Theory of Evolution.

Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not be endangered because someone says a 30-second prayer before a football game. So what's the big deal? It's not like somebody is up there reading the entire Book of Acts. They're just talking to a God they believe in and asking him to grant safety to the players on the field and the fans going home from the game.

But it's a Christian prayer, some will argue.

Yes, and this is the United States of America , a country founded on Christian principles. According to our very own phone book, Christian churches outnumber all others better than 200-to-1. So what would you expect -- somebody chanting Hare Krishna?

If I went to a football game in Jerusalem ,I would expect to hear a Jewish prayer...

If I went to a soccer game in Baghdad , I would expect to hear a Muslim prayer.

If I went to a ping pong match in China , I would expect to hear someone pray to Buddha.

And I wouldn't be offended. It wouldn't bother me one bit.
When in Rome .....

But what about the atheists? Is another argument.

What about them? Nobody is asking them to be baptized. We're not going to pass the collection plate. Just humor us for 30 seconds. If that's asking too much, bring a Walkman or a pair of ear plugs. Go to the bathroom. Visit the concession stand. Call your lawyer!

Unfortunately, one or two will make that call. One or two will tell thousands what they can and cannot do. I don't think a short prayer at a football game is going to shake the world's foundations.

Christians are just sick and tired of turning the other cheek while our courts strip us of all our rights. Our parents and grandparents taught us to pray before eating, to pray before we go to sleep.Our Bible tells us to pray without ceasing. Now a handful of people and their lawyers are telling us to cease praying.

God, help us. And if that last sentence offends you, well, just sue me.

The silent majority has been silent too long. It's time we tell that one or two who scream loud enough to be heard that the vast majority doesn't care what they want. It is time that the majority
Rules! It's time we tell them, You don't have to pray; you don't have to say the Pledge of Allegiance; you don't have to believe in God or attend services that honor Him. That is your right, and we will honor your right; but by golly, you are no longer going to take our rights away. We are fighting back, and we WILL WIN!

God bless us one and all ... Especially those who denounce Him, God bless America, despite all her faults. She is still the greatest nation of all. God bless our service men who are fighting to protect our right to pray and worship God.


Let's make 2009the year the silent majority is heard and we put God back as the foundation of our families and institutions . And our military forces come home from all the wars.

Keep looking up ... and THANK YOU ANDY!

Indoctrination?

What do you think is going on HERE?


Tuesday, September 22, 2009

The TIDES Foundation funded this film ...

You know ... the folks who brought you ACORN, SEIU and The Apollo Alliance.
Now they want to use this propaganda to teach our children and grandchildren that Capitalism is BAD. They do it in a way that bends if not breaks the truth and facts are incorrect in a large portion of this presentation.

Watch it for yourself and then check on the facts that they present ... you will see clearly what their agenda is!



The corruption is getting so deep we will need shovels soon.

Your comments as always are welcomed here ...

Obama's First Six Months' Accomplishments



Let's look at all he has accomplished so far; He has ...


1. Offended the Queen of England .


2. Bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia .


3. Praised the Marxist Daniel Ortega.

4. Kissed Socialist Hugo Chavez on the cheek.

5. Endorsed the Socialist Evo Morales of Bolivia .


6. Sided with Hugo Chavez and Communist Fidel Castro against Honduras .

7. Announced we would meet with Iranians with no pre-conditions while they're building their nuclear weapons.

8. Gave away billions to AIG also without pre-conditions.


9. Expanded the bailouts.


10. Insulted everyone who has ever loved a Special Olympian.


11. Doubled our national debt.


12. Announced the termination of our new missile defense system the day after North Korea launched an ICBM.


13. Released information on U.S. intelligence gathering despite urgings of his own CIA director and the prior four CIA directors.


14. Accepted without comment that five of his cabinet members cheated on their taxes and two other nominees withdrew after they couldn't take the heat.


15. Appointed a Homeland Security Chief who identified military veterans and abortion opponents as "dangers to the nation."


16. Ordered that the word "terrorism" no longer be used and instead refers to such acts as "man made disasters."


17. Circled the globe to publicly apologize for America 's world leadership.


18. Told the Mexican president that the violence in their country was because of us.


19. Politicized the census by moving it into the White House from the Department of Commerce.


20. Appointed as Attorney General the man who orchestrated the forced removal and expulsion to Cuba of a 9-year-old whose mother died trying to bring him to freedom in the United States .


21. Salutes as heroes three Navy SEALS who took down three terrorists who threatened one American life and the next day announces members of the Bush administration may stand trial for "torturing" three 9/11 terrorists by pouring water up their noses.


22. Low altitude photo shoot of Air Force One over New York City that frightened thousands of New Yorkers.

23. Sent his National Defense Advisor to Europe to assure them that the US will no longer treat Israel in a special manner and they might be on their own with the Muslims.

24. Praised Jimmy Carter's trip to Gaza where he sided with terrorist Hamas against Israel .

25. Nationalized General Motors and Chrysler while turning shareholder control over to the unions and freezing out retired investors who owned their bonds. Committed unlimited taxpayer billions in the process.


26. Passed a huge energy tax in the House that will make American industry even less competitive while costing homeowners thousands per year.


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 plan which is guaranteed the remainder of their lives and they are not subject to this new law if they pass it.

DON'T UNDER ESTIMATE US !



Many time in history the American people have been under estimated. Don't under estimate the American People!

WE WILL NEVER FORGET...



On this September 11th I am remembering where I was and what I saw
unfolding on that fateful day. We lost Mothers & Fathers, Daughters and Sons,
Friends and Family. WE WILL NEVER FORGET!

Here is what Network News was on the TV in our stations control room at work that day.
The News broke at 22:28 into this video clip and the rest is history.

Who is VAN JONES? Really?



Did the President know about his past? Who vetted this guy?
If the President did not know, then he is in danger. If the 
President did know, well then, we are the ones in trouble.
That would mean there is a whole backdoor agenda going
on here. The more you dig the more you find.

Sad really, but ...
This is the Chicago Thug mentality at work.
This is the "Overwhelm the system" tactic.
This is the "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before" approach.

ENOUGH ALREADY!!! 
Answer the questions Washington!

A Premonition From The Past ...

As you read the following information, notice how many of these things are happening TODAY!

The Communist Takeover Of
America - 45 Declared Goals

From Greg Swank
12-4-2


You are about to read a list of 45 goals that found their
way down the halls of our great Capitol back in 1963. As you read 
this, 36 years later, you should be shocked by the events that have 
played themselves out. I first ran across this list 3 years ago but was 
unable to attain a copy and it has bothered me ever since. Recently, 
Jeff Rense posted it on his site and I would like to thank him for 
doing so.http://www.rense.com
 
Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record--Appendix,
pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963

 
Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF 
HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF 
FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES 
Thursday, January 10, 1963 .
 
Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of DeLand, Fla., 
is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until 
recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated 
to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of 
communism in America.
 
At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under
unanimous consent, the following "Current Communist Goals," 
which she identifies as an excerpt from "The Naked Communist," 
by Cleon Skousen:
 
[From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]
 
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative
to atomic war.

 
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging
in atomic war.

 
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the
United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

 
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of
Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or 
not items could be used for war.
 
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet
satellites.

 
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of
Communist domination.

 
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China
to the U.N.

 
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in
spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German 
question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
 
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because
the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as 
negotiations are in progress.
 
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation
in the U.N.

 
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If
its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a 
one-world government with its own independent 
armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world 
can be  taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow.  
Sometimes these two centers compete with each other 
as they are now doing in the Congo.)
 
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
 
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
 
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent
Office.

 
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the
United States.

 
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken 
basic American institutions by claiming their 
activities violate civil rights.
 
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as 
transmission belts for socialism and current 
Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. 
Get control of teachers' associations. Put the 
party line in textbooks.
 
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
 
19. Use student riots to foment public protests 
against programs or organizations which are under 
Communist attack.
 
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of 
book-review assignments, editorial writing, 
policy-making positions.
 
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, 
and motion pictures.
 
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading
all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist 
cell  was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks 
and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and 
meaningless forms."
 
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums.
"Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, 
meaningless art."
 
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling
them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

 
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting
pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion 
pictures, radio, and TV.
 
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and 
promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
 
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion
with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize 
the need for intellectual maturity, which does not 
need a "religious crutch."
 
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious 
expression in the schools on the ground that it 
violates the  principle of "separation of church 
and state."
 
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it
inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern 
needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations 
on a worldwide basis.
 
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. 
Present them as selfish aristocrats who had 
no concern for the "common man."
 
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and 
discourage the teaching of American history 
on the ground that it was only a minor part of 
the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian 
history since the Communists took over.
 
32. Support any socialist movement to give 
centralized control over any part of the 
culture-education, social agencies, welfare 
programs, mental health clinics, etc.
 
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere
with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

 
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American 
Activities.
 
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
 
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
 
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
 
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from 
the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral 
problems as psychiatric disorders which no one 
but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
 
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental
health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over 
those who oppose Communist goals.
 
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage
promiscuity and easy divorce.

 
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the
negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, 
mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive 
influence of parents.
 
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection
are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; 
that students and special-interest groups should rise 
up and use "united force" to solve economic, political 
or social problems.
 
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native
populations are ready for self-government.

 
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
 
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the 
United States cannot prevent the World 
Court from seizing jurisdiction [over 
domestic problems. Give the World Court 
jurisdiction] over nations and individuals 
alike.

IT IS OUR DAMN MONEY!



Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said U.S. consumers and workers were "the clear winners" under the program. "Manufacturing plants have added shifts and recalled workers. Moribund showrooms were brought back to life and consumers bought fuel-efficient cars that will save them money and improve the environment," he said.

The White House Council of Economic Advisers said the program will boost economic growth in the third quarter by 0.3 to 0.4 percentage points because of the increased auto sales in July and August. An estimated 42,000 jobs will be created or saved during the second half of the year, the White House said.

The program, which began in late July, offered consumers rebates of $3,500 or $4,500 off the price of a new vehicle in return for trading in their older, less fuel-efficient vehicles. The trade-ins were then scrapped.

It proved far more popular than lawmakers originally thought. Congress was forced to add another $2 billion to the original $1 billion budget when the first pot of money nearly ran out in a week. The extra money was supposed to last through Labor Day, but in the end, Cash for Clunkers ran only about a month.

Dealers loved the new sales, but reported major hassles trying to get the government to repay them for the rebates they gave customers. The government extended the deadline for them to file deals, but many still haven't received their money.

Why are we Loaning US Dollars to foreign companies?



President Obama has opposed any expanded oil drilling off American shores largely on environmental grounds, turning a deaf ear to conservative cries of "Drill, Baby, Drill."

But now Obama may start hearing cries of "foul" after the U.S. Export-Import Bank promised Petrobras, Brazil's state-owned oil company, $2 billion in loan guarantees to help finance lucrative drilling off the shores of Rio De Janeiro.

Some see a contradiction in an executive branch agency, independent but with board members appointed by the president, facilitating abroad the very kind of energy exploration Obama opposes domestically.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Thursday he wasn't prepared to address the issue.

"I have not seen the story," he said. "I'd have to take a look."

But former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, a vocal proponent of offshore drilling, had plenty to say.

"So why is it that during these tough times, when we have great needs at home, the Obama White House is prepared to send more than $2 billion of your hard-earned tax dollars to Brazil so that the nation's state-owned oil company, Petrobas, can drill off shore and create jobs developing its own resources?" she asked on her Facebook page.

In fact, the Export-Import bank receives no appropriations from Congress and thus does not rely on American taxpayer dollars and is also not "sending" $2 billion to the Brazilian company but offering lines of credit to U.S. firms so they can compete to land contracts as part of Petrobras' drilling operations.

The $2 billion "preliminary commitment" by the Export-Import Bank to Petrobras is expected to grow, as the U.S. competes on behalf of American exporters of goods and services against those from China. Beijing has extended a commitment of $10 billion -- but the Brazilians are said to prefer U.S. management and technology.

Then there is the George Soros angle.

The New York-based hedge fund firm controlled by the billionaire philanthropist and backer of Democratic causes and campaigns bought and sold millions of shares in Petrobras -- the largest of the firm's holdings -- prior to public disclosure of the Export-Import bank's offer of new credit guarantees to the Brazilian energy giant.

No one has accused Soros of wrongdoing, but some say the transactions do not pass the "smell test."
