    I think it is more airbrushing than makeup on the first couple.

    Ditto about the two jackasses at the end. They are BOTH jackasses.

    This must be the Political Forum. I'm not one to speak my peace on the subject but after years of matching Social Security to my employee's I've got something to get off my chest. These are facts and I'm not promoting any party. To each his own, that's why we vote. This is just one on my pet peas about the Government.


    Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the 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 -- Did you know 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 U.S.

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

    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 doing all this lying and thieving and violating of 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! That's my two cents of politics for the day. The day they start taxing inventory of fishing tackle, which is about the only thing I'm not taxed on, I'm leaving the country. What Tee's me off the most is the way all the money I send them is spent. Maybe I should run for President!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, I'll get it started with a little humor:


    A guy walks into the local welfare office, marches straight up to the counter and says,
    "Hi... You know, I just HATE drawing welfare checks. I'd really rather have a job."
    The social worker behind the counter says, "Your timing is excellent.
    We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur
    and bodyguard for his beautiful nymphomaniac daughter.
    You'll have to drive around in his Mercedes, but he'll supply all of your clothes.
    Because of the long hours, meals will be provided.
    You'll be expected to escort her on her overseas holiday trips.
    You will have to satisfy her sexual urges.
    You'll be provided a two-bedroom apartment above the garage.
    The starting salary is $90,000 a year."
    The guy, wide-eyed, says, "You're BSing' me!"

    The Social Worker says, "Yeah, well... You started it."

    There was an interesting story last night how the US loaded 380 tons of 100 dollar bills (12 Billion Dollars) on forklifts at the federal reserve bank in NY to c130 cargo planes headed for bagdad. The money just got lost. They had some jackass in front a senate panel (more jackasses) that was aking he questions. he answered questions with " i dont know what happened" to it. Then the senator actually said that 12 billion dollars insn't alot of money. The politicians are all crooked, and can be bought.

    it is the "system".

    we need to downsize the feds and get control back to a local level, wishful thinking.
