History lesson..........


If there is anyone out there that doesn't know this, you should continue to read. ... Now don't be mad at old people (or me) just remember who did this......



Franklin Delano. Roosevelt, 32nd. President, Democrat

Terms of Office March 4, 1933, to April 12, 1945
Our Social Security

Franklin Delano. Roosevelt (Terms of Office March 4, 1933, to April 12, 1945), a Democrat, introduced Social Security (FICA) Program. He Promised:



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

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

3.) That the money the participants elected to put Into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year,

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

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

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:


----------THEN---------------------------------------------------



Dwight David Eisenhower 34th. President, Republican,

Term Of Office: January 20, 1953 to January 20, 1961
Insert by Vincent Peter Render,

If I recall correctly, 1958 is the first year that Congress, not President Eisenhower, voted to remove funds from Social Security and put it into the General Fund for Congress to spend.

If I recall correctly, it was a democratically controlled Congress.

From what I understand, Congress' logic at that time was that there was so much money in Social Security Fund that it would never run out / be used up for the purpose it was intended / set aside for.



-------------WORSE STILL------------------------------------------------



Lyndon Baines Johnson 36th. President Democrat

Term Of Office: November 22, 1963 to January 20, 1969
Question: Which Political Party took Social Security from the Independent 'Trust Fund' and put it into the General Fund so that Congress could spend it?



Answer: It was Lyndon B. Johnson (Democrat, Term of Office: November 22, 1963 to January 20, 1969) and the democratically Controlled House and Senate.


--------------------------------------------------------------------

Question: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax Deduction for Social Security, (FICA) withholding?

Answer: The Democratic Party.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



William Jefferson Clinton (Bill Clinton) 42nd. President

Democrat Term of Office: January 20, 1993 to January 20, 2001


Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. (Al Gore) 45th. Vice President

Democrat Term of Office: January 20, 1993 to January 20, 2001

Question: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

Answer: The Democratic Party, with Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. (Al Gore) [Vice President casting the 'tie-breaking' deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US ..


------------------THE STRAW THAT BROKE THE CAMEL'S BACK !!-------------------------------------------------



James Earl Carter, Jar (Jimmy Carter) 39th President, Democrat

Term of Office: January 20, 1977 to January 20, 1981
Question: Which Political Party decided to start giving Annuity payments to immigrants?

AND MY FAVORITE:


ANSWER: That's right! JAMES EARL CARTER, JR. (JIMMY CARTER) AND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

IMMIGRANTS MOVED INTO THIS COUNTRY, AND AT AGE 65, BEGAN TO RECEIVE SOCIAL SECURITY PAYMENTS: THE DEMOCRATIC PARTYGAVE THESE PAYMENTS TO THEM, EVEN THOUGH THEY NEVER
PAID A DIME INTO IT!

"Damn", have you ever seen a Jack-ass eating briers...!

----------------------------------------------------------------------

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 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?
Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.

Thomas Jefferson 3rd. President, Democrat

Term of Office: January 20, 1777 to January 20, 1781

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

Thomas Jefferson

Does anybody out there have any memory of the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY ..... during the Carter Administration?



Anybody?
Anything?
No?
Didn't think so!
Bottom line .. we've spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency ... the reason for which not one person who reads this can remember.

Ready???????

It was very simple.. and at the time everybody thought it very appropriate...



The 'Department of Energy' was instituted on

8-04-1977


TO LESSEN OUR

DEPENDENCE ON

FOREIGN OIL.


Hey, pretty efficient, huh?????


AND NOW IT'S 2009,

32 YEARS LATER ...

AND THE BUDGET

FOR THIS


"NECESSARY" DEPARTMENT

IS AT $24.2 + BILLION

A YEAR

IT HAS

16,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES

AND APPROXIMATELY

100,000 CONTRACT EMPLOYEES

AND LOOK AT THE JOB IT HAS DONE!

THIS IS WHERE YOU SLAP YOUR FOREHEAD AND SAY

'WHAT WAS I THINKING?'

Ah, yes, good ole bureaucracy..


And NOW we are going to turn the banking system, health care &

the auto industry over to them?

God Help Us !!!

Quietly we go like sheep to slaughter.
