Whose Right? Christie Or Huckabee?

Nobody Wins

For some reason, I couldn’t get this exchange between Christie and Huckabee out of my mind. Watch this scene from the GOP debate above:

It’s all about HOW the government should take care of Social Security.Fraud

So, here’s the problem: Christie claims that 71 percent of the federal budget is spent on entitlement and debt service.  Does he just mean Social Security and Medicaid and Medicare? Is he including all the welfare and food stamps and the millions of dollars given out in fraudulent payments to illegal’s and dead people? Does ‘debt service’ include the pensions of government workers? (Remember, HALF the population works for the government) He doesn’t say.

He goes on to say how he would fix it: Raise the retirement age…slowly. And then don’t give it to people who make over $200,000 and have $5 million in assets. (Not exactly a lot there, small group.)

Huckabee gives the important fact that the government stole this money from us, and wasted it.  His approach is right. It was stolen from the people, let Congress give up their HUGE retirement paychecks. Most all of them are millionaires, so he is agreeing here with Christie, BUT…Christie wants to appear as a pragmatist, and cut those entitlements, because yes, it was stolen, but too late now to blame anyone.

The whole thing was a Ponzi scheme in the first place, but that’s another blog.

Christie’s game plan is the deed is done. Get over it. Now you need to fork out more. It’s just a reality.

And so, let’s say they do this, screw the American people, and take more money, and give out less.  They will just spend whatever money they receive on something else, and the country is STILL broke.

You KNOW that will happen.

The money will pour into the Social Security Office and the money will flow out, to pay for some Presidential vacation in Hawaii, and black hole operations nobody ever finds out about.Christie

Huckabee ends the debate with the solution of a fair tax.

Huckabee is for the people in this: Christie is for the government. Christie is almost a borderline socialist.

There is another solution: We need money? Cut out the BILLIONS of fraud and waste from every department. Get rid of about 200 bloated government departments that do nothing but watch porn all day. Get rid of the IRS, the ERA, and half a dozen other departments made just to suck up the money.

Trim the fat. Do we REALLY need a government that employs HALF the population?

No. But Christie is trying to tell you to grow up–you’ve been robbed. Deal with it.

That’s like Michael Brown pushing that little cigar owner guy out-of-the-way: Hey mister, you’ve been robbed. DEAL with it. 

Where’s the Godfather when you need him?

When a government keeps stealing your money, and then spending your money, and then bankrupts the nation, and then wants MORE

Nobody Wins.

Nobody’s Perfect: Frightened Seniors

Nobody’s Perfect

If you watched the video (go ahead, the rest will make more sense) you have to ask yourself: why in the WORLD would anyone who has been on this planet for 81 years say such a terrible thing to a little boy?

What has she done with her life? And WHY in the world is she driving a bus at 81 years old? Obviously, this lady is scared. She should be scared of getting sick instead of Romney, because with Obamacare, if she needs any kind of heart surgery, or cancer treatment, she will just have to get off the bus of life and die.—Which some would say, would be sweet Karma.

So what is happening to some of our Seniors? You would THINK.. they would see Obama for what he is.

I ran into one of these “Seniors” today. She was behind me in the line at the grocery store. We both started putting up our items out of our carts, and as I was lifting my milk to put up on the counter, she said, “I can’t believe how much money food costs! it’s half of what I spend!”

She was dressed nice, with short white hair, a pretty face, and blue eyes that once upon a time, must have broken a few hearts.

I laughed and agreed with her. “I know, I spend a good portion of the paycheck on groceries, and there’s only two of us.” I said, as I slammed the 24 pack of “purified” water on the counter. I said I would never pay for “water” and yet, my husband is addicted to it, and now, so am I.

Americans…can sell you ANYTHING.

Having found an agreement with me..she continued, “Yes, things are bad, and when my husband died, his company went bankrupt and left me without any health insurance, and I’m now 93 years old!” But she had remarried when she was 72. Already, I was admiring this lady. I thought to myself, “The older people know…she must be a conservative, like me!”

The conversation continued as we both pulled our carts over to start our bagging.

“You know, I can remember when gas was 23cents a gallon. My son’s company moved overseas and at 50 he had to find another job. I have seen a lot in my lifetime.” she said.  “And everything is so expensive these days. I feel so sorry for the younger generations.”

Having filled our baskets up, we both continued talking while getting our stuff to the car, which just happened to be parked next to one another.

“You know” I said. “Its so nice to talk to someone who sees the condition of the country, and you must be upset to see the changes that have happened.”

“Yes…you know the rich are going to get richer, and the poor will get poorer, and we will just be like all the other countries.”

And then she said, “You know…Romney keeps his money in the Cayman island!”

She could have thrown a watermelon at my head, and I wouldn’t have been more surprised.

I realized that this women…was actually scared—but not too bright. She had been told, by Obama,  that all the things happening in her life were due to rich people trying to screw them, and so she was going to vote for Obama.

Sadly, the only thing I could say was, “I’d rather vote for a rich man, a Christian man, than vote for a Muslim. America, is a Christian country.”

I know, stupid. What can you say in 30 seconds to reeducate and soothe the fears of a person who has been brainwashed, and has no clue? You can’t.

Obama has literally repeated the same lies over and over and over…a point used by Hilter’s propaganda minster Goebbels.

Repeat a lie long enough, and it will become the truth. And for so many people, it has. Romeny is a rich, evil man.

And the lie continues.

Those 81 years olds…can barely get by. The dollar has been so devalued they have to keep working…like the rest of us, just to survive..And Obama has told them Romney wants their Social Security.

That is no excuse for telling some little boy he should have been aborted, but then again, that’s how the liberal minds works. Only the “left” should be allowed to live.

America….can sell you anything, especially if you scare them while you’re doing it.

And to many in that nation, they are selling… a madman.

Nobody’s Email: The REAL History of Social Security

Nobody Gets Email

 Here’s  an email I got a few days ago…it had a few surprises in it for me…it’s worth a quick read. I know, I thought it was very hard when I was a musician to have to pay double SS payments, because I was “self employed.” For people like musicians or Physical Trainers, or independent contractors,  it can be brutal.

 A History Lesson on Your Social Security Car—1934-1980

 With the elections just a little over 3 months away you’ll soon be hearing some Democrats running for political office, warning how the Republicans want to take away the old people’s 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 family and friends. They need a little history lesson on what’s what and it doesn’t matter whether you are Democrat of Republican. Facts are facts:

Social Security Cards, issued in 1934, and up until the 1980’s expressly stated the number and that 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, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.

When 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 (Double for self-employed.)

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.

Under Johnson, another Democrat, 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, Democrats, Up to 85% of your Social Security can be taxes.

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month–and then finding out that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to ‘put away’ for us—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 U.S.

Q. Which political party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?

A. 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 away your Social Security. And the worst part is: uninformed citizens believe it!

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

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.

Nobody Gets Email: The “Entitlement” Programs

Nobody Gets Email

As you all know, I think the emails being passed around the world are the “little” people crying out the injustices because the state controlled “media” never lets us on their programs. I wish there was a Cable TV channel where the “nobodies” of the world could rant and express their ideas and opinions, but there isn’t. So, we send emails. Here’s another favorite. It expresses how most of us feel about the government saying that Social Security is an entitlement that they can bestow on us or not. Unlike food stamps, we paid into it. If it’s a Ponzi scheme (and it is) and you’ve spent our money, then give back what you took from us.

What? You don’t have it? You spent it on wars and handouts to big banks, and welfare? The United States Government is too big to fail? Just watch it. (Thanks to Pattie) 

******

Keep passing this around. Until everyone  has read it. Something to think about: The only thing wrong with this calculation is they forgot to figure in the people who died before they collected their Social Security. Where did the money go?

This was sent to me, I’m forwarding it because it does touch a nerve in me. This is another example of what Rick Perry calls “treason in high places.” Get angry and pass it on.

Subject: I paid in, didn’t you? 

Remember, not only did you contribute to Social Security, but you employer did too. It totaled 15 % of your income before taxes. If you averaged only 30K over your working life, that’s close to $250,000. If you calculate the future value of $4,500 per year (yours and your employer’s contribution) at a simple 5% (less than what the government pays on the money it borrows) after 49 years of working you’d have $892,919.98.

If you took only 3% per year, you’d received $26,787, and it would last better then 30 years (until you’re 95 if you retired at age 65) and that’s with no interest paid on that final amount of deposit! If you bought an annuity and it paid 4%, you’d have a lifetime income of $2, 976.40 per month. The people in Washington have pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madhoff ever had.

Entitlement my ass! I paid cash for my Social Security insurance! Just because they borrowed the money doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity handout! Congressional benefits —free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacations, unlimited sick days, now that’s welfare and they have the nerve to call my Social Security entitlements?

We’re broke and we can’t help our Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, or Homeless. In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, and Turkey, and now Pakistan, home of bin Laden..literally BILLIONS of dollars!  Our retired seniors, living on a fixed income, receive no aid, nor do tey get any breaks, while our government and religious organizations pour Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$ and tons of food to foreign countries!

They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement program even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives, and now when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money? Why did the government borrow from it in the first place?

Imagine if the “Government” gave us the same support they give to other countries? Sad isn’t it? 99% of the people who read this won’t have the guts to pass it on…I just did.

(Nobody ditto’s that.)

Bernie Madoff’s Social Security Scheme

Nobody Gets Email

This email speaks for itself. We should all remember this when they talk about Social Security.

(Thanks to Tom Beebe)

*****

Why did Bernie Madoff go to  prison? To make it simple, he talked people into investing with him. Trouble was, he didn’t invest their money. As time rolled on he simply took the money from the new investors to pay off the old investors. Finally there were too many old investors and not enough money from new investors coming in to keep the payments going.

Next thing you know, Madoff is one of the most hated men in America and he is off to jail. Some of you know this, but not enough of you. Madoff did to his investors what the government has been doing to us for over 70 years with Social Security. There is no meaningful difference between the two schemes, except that on was operated by a private individual who is now in jail, and the other is operated by politicians who enjoy perks, privileges and status in spite of their actions.

Do you need a side-by side comparison here? Well, here’s a nifty chart.

BERNIE MADOFF

SOCIAL SECURITY

1. Takes money from investors with the promise that the money will be invested and made available to them later.

1. Takes money from wage earners with the promise that the money will
be invested in a “Trust Fund” (Lock Box) and made available later.

2. Instead of investing the money Madoff spends it on nice homes in the Hamptons and yachts etc.

2. Instead of depositing money in a Trust Fund the politicians transfer

  it to the ‘General Revenue Fund’ and use it for general spending and vote

  buying.

3. When the time comes to pay the investors back Madoff simply uses  some of the new funds from newer investors to pay back the older investors.

3. When benefits for older investors become due the politicians pay them with money taken from younger and newer wage earners to pay the  older people.

4. When Madoff’s scheme is discovered all hell breaks loose. New
investors won’t give him any more cash.

4. When Social Security runs out of money the politicians try to force
the taxpayers to send them some more; or they cancel Social Security to all  those who paid into it.

5. Bernie Madoff goes to jail; then who pays his medical, housing and
medical expenses?

5. Politicians remain in Washington… with fat medical and retirement benefits.

The Taxpayer; That is someone who works for the federal government but doesn’t have to take the civil service examination.

“If you put the federal government in charge of the “Sahara Desert”, in five years there’d be a shortage of sand.”

                                                            –Milton Friedan

Pass this on to Another Taxpayer.
