SOCIAL SECURITY NOW CALLED ‘FEDERAL BENEFIT PAYMENT’/ENTITLEMENT!

Standard

SOCIAL SECURITY NOW CALLED ‘FEDERAL BENEFIT PAYMENT’/ENTITLEMENT!

 

Have you noticed, your Social Security check is now referred to as a “Federal Benefit Payment”?

 

I’ll be part of the one percent to forward this.

I am forwarding it because it touches a nerve in me, and I hope it will in you.

 

Please keep passing it on until everyone in our country has read it.

 

The government is now referring to our Social Security checks as a “Federal Benefit Payment.”

This isn’t a benefit – its earned income!

Not only did we all contribute to Social Security but our employers did too.

 

It totaled 15% of our income before taxes.  If you averaged $30K per year over your working life, that’s close to $180,000 invested in Social Security.

 

If you calculate the future value of your monthly investment in social security ($375/month, including both

your and your employer’s contributions) at a meager 1% interest rate compounded monthly, after 40 years of

working you’d have more than $1.3+ million dollars saved! This is your personal investment.

 

Upon retirement, if you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $39,318 per year, or $3,277 per month.

 

That’s almost three times more than today’s average Social Security benefit of $1,230 per month, according to the Social Security Administration (Google it – it’s a fact).

 

And your retirement fund would last more than 33 years (until you’re 98 if you retire at age 65)! I can only imagine how much better most average-income people could live in retirement if our government had

just invested our money in low-risk interest-earning accounts.

 

Instead, the folks in Washington pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madoff ever did.

They took our money and used it elsewhere. They “forgot” that it was OUR money they were taking.

They didn’t have a referendum to ask us if we wanted to lend the money to them.

 

And they didn’t pay interest on the debt they assumed.

And recently, they’ve told us that the money won’t support us for very much longer.

But is it our fault they misused our investments?

 

And now, to add insult to injury, they’re calling it a “benefit,” as if we never worked to earn every penny of it.  Just because they “borrowed” the money, doesn’t mean that our investments were a charity! Let’s take a stand.

 

We have earned our right to Social Security and Medicare.

Demand that our legislators bring some sense into our government.

 

Find a way to keep Social Security and Medicare going, for the sake of that 92% of our population who need it.

 

Then call it what it is:

Our Earned Retirement Income.

 

99% of people won’t forward this.

Will you?

 

DAMN RIGHT I WILL !!!!!!

more reasons I hate Obamacare

Standard
YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS…
At            age 76 when you most need it, you are not eligible for cancer
treatment
see          page 272
What         Nancy Pelosi didn’t want us to know until after the healthcare
bill was passed.  Remember she said, “We have to pass the Bill so
                that we can see what’s in it.”
Well, here it is.          
Obama Care Highlighted by Page Number 
THE           CARE BILL HB 3200

JUDGE  KITHIL IS THE 2ND OFFICIAL WHO H A S OUTLINED THESE PA RTS OF THE  CARE BILL. 

Judge       Kithil of  Marble Falls,  TX –  highlighted the most egregious pages of HB3200

Please     read this…….. especially the reference to pages 58 & 59

JUDGE     KITHIL wrote:

**
Page 50/section 152:  The bill will provide insurance to
all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.

**
Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an        
<—-What?????
individual’s bank account and will have the authority to make
electronic fund transfers from those accounts.

**
Page 65/section 164:  The plan will be subsidized (by the
government) for all union members, union retirees and for
community organizations (such as the
Association
of Community Organizations for Reform Now –
A CORN).

**
Page 203/line 14-15:  The tax imposed under this section
will not be treated as a tax.  (How could anybody in their
right mind come up with that?)

**
Page 241 and 253:  Doctors will all be paid the same
regardless of specialty, and the government will set all
doctors’ fees.

**
Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care
according to the patient’s age.

**
Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on
hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an
exception.

**
Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care
planning consultations.  Those on Social Security will be
required to attend an “end-of-life planning” seminar every five
years. (Death counseling..)

**
Page 429,  line 13-25:  The government will specify
which doctors can write an end-of-life order.


H A D
        ENOUGH????  Judge Kithil then goes on to identify:

Finally, it is specifically stated that this bill will not apply to
members of Congress.  Members of Congress are already
exempt from the Social Security system, and have a well-funded
private plan that covers their retirement needs. If they were on
our Social Security plan, I believe they would find a very quick
‘fix’ to make the plan financially sound for their future.”

–    Honorable David Kithil of Marble FallsTexas

Catholics and Obama

Standard

I cannot understand how those who profess Catholicism can vote for a man who supports abortions, demands abortions, and forces other Catholics to supply abortions.

I cannot understand how those who profess to be pro-Life can support a man who wants to do anything other than preserve life.

I was born Catholic, raised Catholic, educated Catholic…and yet no longer profess Catholicism as my religion.  But I still agree with many of the things I learned—but then again those are the same things that fall under 10 simple Commandments.  Not suggestions.  Not good ideas.  Commands.  And one of those is “do not murder”.

The Bible declares frequently that God knew us before we were born; that God formed us in the womb; that put the muscle and sinew that formed our bones and body.  God does not make mistakes.  You might not agree with his decisions, but He does not make mistakes.

And so I was shocked and appalled that many of my extended family members are voting the Democrat, Barrack Hussein Obama, simply because of their Union’s decision to support him.

I am told I’m racist because I didn’t vote for him, won’t vote him and hope he goes home to Kenya.  I vote issues.  I am against his foreign policy.  I am against his domestic policy.  I am against his Executive orders.  I am against his idea of healthcare.  I am against his ideas of ‘redistribution of wealth’.  I am against him on almost any issue he speaks about.

Personally I think anyone who votes for him solely because he is black (….actually mulatto!) is racist.  Or maybe they are voting for the phones and welfare packages he wants to expand.

And no one seems to understand the freedoms they are going to lose after the election.  He already has instituted laws through Executive Orders to take over every aspect of American lives, from the Internet to electricity, phones, gas, water, housing, and anything else he wants control of.  Americans are being arrested for speaking against him now, imagine what it will be like in a 2nd term.

And I’d bet that I’ll be on a black list somewhere for using my freedom of speech here in this blog.
Do not assume that I am voting for Romney because I agree with all of his ideas.  It is more like he has the best chance of all other parties running for President to beat Obama.  And I think he has a better grasp of how to help America remain free and secure.

And it is because of family members like mine, who claim Catholicism and yet vote against very basic moral issues the Church supports, that made me decide to leave the Catholic Church.  I have a Christian faith, not a religion.  I have my own set of morals.  And I have a God that will judge me on the great Judgement Day.

Until then….I will not vote for Obama.  Nor Biden.

 

Here is a little video I found that gives 5 more reasons why I won’t……

Anti-Bullying

Standard

I think this says it better than anything else I could say.  I was bullied as a kid, but didn’t realize it until the last few years.  They didn’t call it that back then….it was just life as I knew it.

And yes, I’m overweight….and in part because food became my escape from loneliness and ostracism from my peers and classmates.

So during this month of Anti-Bullying …..remember, it’s easy to make fun of people, it takes true courage to ignore the negative and grow with the positive….
