    Another truth

    I'm always impressed when the absolute truth shows up in short form:
    The problems we face today are
    there because the people who work
    for a living are outnumbered by those
    who vote for a living.

  3. Under Barack Obama, the moocher society is expanding. The moochers are multiplying at rapid rates. They won't work, but they durned sure can breed. Figures show that one out of every six Americans you meet will receive some sort of government handout. There are more than 50 million Americans in Medicaid, and wait until ObamaCare kicks in. More than 40 million Americans are on food stamps.

    Remember, not only did you contribute to Social Security but your employer did too.
    It totaled 15% of your income before taxes.
    If you averaged only 30K over your working life, that’s close to $220,500.
    If you calculate the future value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer’s contribution) at a simple 5% (less than what the govt. pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working (me) you’d have $892,919.98.
    If you took out only 3% per year, you receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years, and that’s with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit!

    If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you’d have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.
    The folks 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 or handout !! Congressional benifits , aka. free healthcare , outrageous retirement packages , 67 paid holidays , three weeks paid vacation , unlimited paid sick days , now that's welfare , and they have the nerve to call my retirement entitlements !!!!!!.....


    WAKE UP AMERICA !!!!


    Tuesday's Daily Bulletin paper, ran two articles on the front page side by side :


    1- Calif 's 20 Billion Dollar Budget Deficit


    2- The Calif Supreme Court ruling that ILLEGALS can attend college
    and get benefits.


    Why don't they just deport them when they arrive to register?


    3- Last year they ran an article on the yearly costs to Calif Taxpayers from
    Illegals using Hospital Emergency Rooms for their general health care -

    At just one hospital the cost to tax payers totaled over 25 million a year

    Someone please tell me what the HELL's wrong with all the people that run
    this country!!!!!!

    We're "broke" & can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless
    etc.,???????????

    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 they
    get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour
    Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$'s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!


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

    We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for
    the adoption of foreign orphans.

    AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to
    bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed' meds,and mentally ill without
    treatment -etc,etc.


    YET....................
    They have a 'Benefit' for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations, ships and
    planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and
    medical supplies.

    Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other
    countries.

    Sad isn't it?

    Those that Produce in the Country are penalized
    Those that don't produce are subsidized
    Those that complain the most about the Producers not giving enough are canonized.

    We reward slothful behavior like it's a badge and take from those that earn and reduce their standard of living to almost no better then the slothful individual.

    The fact is that the Democrats would have it no other way. A moocher society will inevitably vote Looters into power. Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Harry Reid .. these are the Looters extraordinaire.

    It sicken me to know end to think the likes of Bill Ayres who was responsible for over 30 bombings and killing and wounding many LEO and innocent people is now Indoctrinating our new and upcoming sponge minds that will soon be voting Democrap/communist/socialist.

    And we were threatened with it and knew about it since the early 50's. We have only ourselves to blame as usual. Pathetic, ain't it?

    It is pathetic. We were all too busy with our own beeswax.

    Good ethics, good financial stewardship, and a few more I didn't list seem to be a dying art these days.

    It used to be that when one was caught by police in the "Old days," one's parents would scold them for the wrongdoing. These days, parents do the scolding because the person was caught by the police, not for doing the wrong thing, because they were only wrong because they get caught.

    I know that it's the high road, by somebody's got to take it!

    Back in the "Old Days", when family was important, you didn't want to disappoint your parents by doing something stupid. Now there is no personal responsibility so who cares. Parents don't dare scold the children, that could be abuse.

    The former is a much more difficult problem to remedy, the latter not so much. I discovered that even in my state there was a misunderstanding about corporal punishments legality. As for Kentucky, spanking your kids is alive and well and your right to do so is protected by law. Maybe someone in each state should research your laws to discover what the legality is and inform people of such. If it is actually illegal in your state, im thinking you should work on that.
