Facts are Facts.

Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and 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. 
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 

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, and, 
Under Johnson 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 Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed Since many of us have paid into FICA for years andare 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:

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 US 

Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants? 

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 violating the original contract (FICA),the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away! 

Our Gov't in Power

This is a JOKE......

They Voted to Keep EarMarks

The following Republicans voted in opposition of banning earmarks.........please keep their names in mind as just because the (R) id after the name does not mean all is well.  
The eight Republicans in opposition were Sens. Bob Bennett of Utah, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, Susan Collins of Maine, Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, Dick Lugar of Indiana, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Richard Shelby of Alabama and George Voinovich of Ohio. Bennett, Cochran, Murkowski, Shelby and Voinovich all serve on the Appropriations Committee.

Just Another WikiLeak On An Already Sinking Ship - Heritage Foundation

There is nothing positive that can be said about the release of more than a quarter-million confidential American diplomatic cables by the rogue hacker organization WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks has recklessly and inexcusably put lives at risk. Any U.S. person who cooperated with WikiLeaks has committed a crime and should be prosecuted to the maximum extent of the law.
That said, WikiLeaks is not the end of the world. The fundamentals of U.S. relationships with other nations remain unchanged. Leaks are not going to stop nations from cooperating with the U.S., or for that matter sharing secrets with us. Nations cooperate with the U.S. because it is in their interest to do so. And no leak will stop nations from acting in their self-interest.
.............The President should also make it a publicly top priority to hunt down any American connected with these leaks and prosecute them. This is not the first WikiLeak. This is, in fact, the third time that WikiLeaks has undermined our nation’s national security, and the Obama Department of Justice has been silent each time. Nobody gets more cooperation than a winner. The Obama Administration can begin to right its foreign policy ship by stopping and successfully prosecuting the WikiLeakers.

Been to the Zoo Recently? We bring it to you.....don't get too close

TSA - Security?

Security? Not really.  Let's not kid ourselves, while it is promoted as the fair approach to force all passengers to equal screening at airport security in the end we are less secure, less efficient and out of pocket with tax $s. 
Grandma groin search please.....4 year olds the same......please people...wake up.  The political correctness of today makes a farce of our nation and government.  Political correctness is the opposite of what it says it is.....a group of a few decide what is acceptable for all. 
Face facts on WHO should be scrutinized and who not. Complain, gripe and let your reps know your opinion on such.
A great article form Krauthammer on the issue;

Government Intervention ruin (example case - we feel daily)

(From Boortz)
In an interview yesterday with MSNBC, Barney Frank had the gonads to say this: "What we are seeing from Republicans is a double whammy. First it was Republican policies under George W. Bush that caused this terrible recession, and now they are resisting our efforts to get out of it."
To combat this complete revision of history, I am going to pull out the big guns. We are going to a column by Thomas Sowell to correct this idea that the Republican policies under George W. Bush caused this recession ...
"Another political fable is that the current economic downturn is due to not enough government regulation of the housing and financial markets. But it was precisely the government regulators, under pressure from politicians, who forced banks and other lending institutions to lower their standards for making mortgage loans. These risky loans, and the defaults that followed, were what set off a chain reaction of massive financial losses that brought down the whole economy.
Was this due to George W. Bush and the Republicans? Only partly. Most of those who pushed the lowering of mortgage lending standards were Democrats-- notably Congressman Barney Frank and Senator Christopher Dodd, though too many Republicans went along.
At the heart of these policies were Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, who bought huge amounts of risky mortgages, passing the risk on from the banks that lent the money (and made the profits) to the taxpayers who were not even aware that they would end up paying in the end.
When President Bush said in 2004 that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac should be reined in, 76 members of the House of Representatives issued a statement to the contrary. These included Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters and Charles Rangel.
If we are going to talk about "the policies that created this mess in the first place," let's at least get the facts straight and the names right."


These need to be stopped.  Earmarks are a method of taking federal tax $ and using them for local projects. The president's administration submits his budget to congress for their approval and currently with earmarks Congressmen and Senators tack on their pet projects and approve the overall budget. While many representatives use these limitedly some use these in extreme fashion.  This is a misappropriation of our tax $s and should not be allowed.  I am all for a ban on earmarks and would go further than the current proposal of a 2 year moratorium....make it banned forever.

Concerning.... (S510)

I was advised by a friend on the recent activity of a bill in the Senate (S510).  It is the usual deep-ended text with a lot of plug-ins though what seems as good intention looks to be too evasive.  Read up and write your Senators of your opinion. 

Virginia residents I added our Senators links below;

A Good start

This outlines a proposal for tax reform.... from the selected deficit commission, Democrat Erskine Bowles and Republican Alan Simpson.  While I believe we should go further (eliminating the IRS and utilizing a national sales tax) this is better than what we currently have.
This is taken from a 2nd website as the original was in the WSJ and I do not subscribe.

Task force faces uphill battle on plan to cut deficit $3.8T

By Richard Wolf, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON — The leaders of a bipartisan panel charged with finding ways to cut the $13.7 trillion national debt Wednesday recommended more than $3.8 trillion in savings over the next decade, but they met quick resistance from Democrats.
The proposal includes sweeping changes to Social Security, the elimination of popular tax breaks and nearly $1.5 trillion in suggested cuts from defense and domestic spending programs.

Rich Nations Urged to Weigh 'Robin Hood' Tax to Help Poor

....?  say again....

The Robin Hood tax -- a global financial transaction fee that could raise hundreds of billions of dollars to pay the cost of the global financial crisis and support developing nations struggling to recover -- is not popular.

While Britain, France and Germany have championed a bank tax for all G-20 nations, finance chiefs from the industrialized nations shot down the idea at a previous summit held in Toronto last summer.
Still, the tax's supporters, which include unions, environmental groups, Comic Relief, UNICEF and others in a multinational coalition, say the tax could go to canceling debt from poor nations. Or it could be used for social programs to fight hunger, diseases such as HIV/AIDS and malaria or other causes, programs to which the United States and other nations already donate billions.


Here are some facts you need to know about ObamaCare:

•Costs taxpayers a staggering $1 trillion over the next decade.
•Increases health care spending by more than $200 billion.
•Raises drug prices and the cost of premiums.
•Raises taxes on small businesses.
•Burdens state governments with costs nearing $10 billion between 2014 and 2019.
•Forces companies to drop employer-provided health coverage for workers.
•Incentivizes individuals to drop their own coverage, pay a penalty, and only get health insurance when they get sick.
Despite all these problems, President Obama and his liberal allies still defend the law as good for American business.
Facing a $25 billion deficit for their next two-year budget cycle, Texas lawmakers are considering closing the gap by dropping out of Medicaid. “This system is bankrupting our state,” State Representative Warren Chisum told The New York Times. “We need to get out of it. And with the budget shortfall we’re anticipating, we may have to act this year,” he said.
And Texas is not alone. American Legislative Exchange Council director of the health and human services Christie Herrera tells NYT: “States feel like their backs are against the wall, so this is the nuclear option for them. I’m hearing below-the-radar chatter from legislators around the country from states considering this option.”

Veterans Day - Thank you to All Vets

Out of respect for the sacrifices given by the countless veterans who have given their life or spent part of their lives to protect our country.  Thank you we owe you more than we know.

Citizens Against Government Waste

Citizens Against Government Waste’s crack Research Team has identified 459 pork-barrel earmarks, costing taxpayers $329.6 million, in the House version of the fiscal year 2011 Department of Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development (THUD) Appropriations Act.

Tell us which of the following THUD pet projects YOU think is the most wasteful, irresponsible expenditure by lawmakers in the face of our nation’s $1.3 trillion deficit:
•$6,800,000 for streetscape design in 12 cities across the country. House appropriator Norm Dicks (D-Wash.) requested the largest amount, $1,000,000 for downtown Tacoma, Wash.
•$1,750,000 requested by House appropriator Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) for “The Wave,” a 2.7-mile downtown streetcar system in Fort Lauderdale that is estimated to cost $46 million per mile.
•$750,000 added by Reps. Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.) and Dina Tutus (D-Nev.) for the construction of a solar power array at the Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas. According to the organization’s website, $1 can pay for three individual meals, so for the cost of the solar power array, needy citizens could receive 2,250,000 meals.
•$500,000 for a new ferry service in Berkeley, Calif. Requested by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), these federal tax dollars will pay for the acquisition of two ferries, which would come equipped with solar panels.
•$150,000 added by Rep. Mark Schauer (D-Mich.) for renovation of the Tibbits Opera House in Coldwater, Mich. According to financial information provided in the opera house’s most recent annual report, charging an additional $3.56 per ticket would offset the cost of the renovations without burdening federal taxpayers, the vast majority of whom will never visit the Tibbits Opera House.
Please take a moment right now to take our PORK ALERT SURVEY. http://membership.cagw.org/site/Survey?SURVEY_ID=3480&ACTION_REQUIRED=URI_ACTION_USER_REQUESTS&autologin=true
We will publicize and use the results to demonstrate overwhelming public opposition to our elected officials’ frivolous, self-serving spending that is corrupting the budgetary process and driving the federal deficit to record levels.

Uhm, Lost in Space...I mean San Francisco

San Francisco Supervisors Approve Fast Food Toy Ban

What a bunch of nuts.  The is the reality of today where a local government has moved to tell a private restaurant chain what they can and can not sell.  Government  wastes.....here is the link http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2010/11/02/san-francisco-supervisors-approve-fast-food-toy-ban/ and afterwards look at the comments posted...hopefully the officials will catch a clue or either move to Cuba.

......So, our borders are wide open, terrorists are mailing bombs everywhere, elderly women are being targeted by thugs, unemployment is at record highs but our tax money is being used to get those dangerous Happy Meals off the street. How about those politicians, huh?

.......AMEN to that!! I posted something similar. I can’t believe the issues some of our cities here in Cali think take priority over the things you mention. It’s embarrassing to call myself a Californian these days.

......THIS is what San Francisco is worried about??? LOLOL! OMG that is too much. They have tons of homeless. Illegals killing people. Extreme budget problems and THIS is the issue that needs tackling?! What whack jobs.

......just crazy and cracked. something is really wrong here.

American Pride

American Pride, where is it?  It is alive and strong.  Many of you have the similar feeling that we live in the greatest nation on earth -bar none.  Some of us have seen what other options are out there and we feel even stronger on this. 
I was reading a book to our children on Ronald Reagan and an excerpt stated,"In 1977, Jimmy Carter became president.  And Reagan? He went home to his ranch.  And he waited to see what would happen.
He didn't like what he saw.  Prices were going up.  people were out of work.  many families could not afford to buy what they needed.  In the middle eastern country of Iran, there was an uprising.  Rioters captured more than sixty Americans there.  They were being held, blindfolded and helpless.
Reagan said that Americans were losing pride in their country.  That made him angry.  It was time to do something."
Does this sound familiar?  I can remember Nov. 3rd 2008.  A day that was one of the saddest in my life.  Many only saw the election of the first black president (which being true though also a racist perspective).  I honestly did not look at him as a black man, I looked at him as a socialist and a danger to our nation.  Many did not understand.  And today?  I believe many do finally understand and the rejection of him and his agenda was loud and clear this past Nov. 2nd.  We do not want you Mr. Obama, we want you to be a one term president as your mentor Jimmy Carter.  And US?  Well we ARE Proud of our country and we are looking for a Reagan type character for 2012.

Get to Work Protecting America - From the Heritage Foundation

"I believe that the primary Constitutional function of the federal government is national defense, bar none," reads the very first sentence of Sen.-elect Rand Paul's (R-KY) issue page on national defense. Sen.-elect Paul is right. It is right there in the Preamble to the United States Constitution: "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Get to Work Stopping the Obama Tax Hikes - Heritage Foundation

November 8th, 2010
Last night, during a taped interview with 60 Minutes, President Barack Obama told Steve Kroft: “I thought the economy would have gotten better by now. One of the things I think you understand as president is you’re held responsible for everything. But you don’t always have control of everything.” President Obama is right: presidents often do get too much of the credit and too much of the blame for the economic performance of the country. But there is one aspect of the economy that President Obama does have control over: taxes. And at a time when our nation’s unemployment still hovers around 10%, President Obama’s tax plan raises taxes by $1.8 trillion over the next 10 years.

The White House wants you to believe that only the wealthy will pay higher taxes under the President’s plan. Don’t believe them for a second. These hikes include reducing the child tax credit, re-imposing the marriage penalty, raising taxes on small businesses (the American jobs engine), raising dividend taxes (draining seniors’ incomes), raising capital gains taxes (diverting money from job-creating investments) and raising some personal tax rates.

ABC, CBS & NBC - Socialist Networks, by MRC

For the last two years, conservative grassroots activists across the country knocked on doors, made phone calls, donated money, talked to their friends, families and coworkers every day. On Tuesday, Nov. 2nd, their efforts were rewarded as the radical agenda of the liberal media and other leftists was resoundingly rejected!
But, the liberal media's lies, distortions and attacks are not over. They have now shifted focus to convincing the conservatives that they were attacking only a week ago, to "moderate." This effort to steal from activists  the fruits of their hard fought victory will not go unchallenged!
George Stephanopoulos, Matt Lauer and Harry Smith are all pushing for newly elected conservatives to part with their "anger" and learn to "compromise." Unable to cope with the historically stunning defeat of their socialist agenda, and apparently still unaware of the fact that they are decidedly out of step with the American people, the liberal media have gone on the attack.
On Wednesday, Good Morning America's George Stephanopoulos questioned newly minted Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. George wondered if Paul would hold firm on his commitment to balance the budget, "even if it means you're going to be a one-term senator?"
NBC's Matt Lauer characterized Paul's victory as a "wave of anger and energy," and asked if he'd heard the words of Harry Reid who said the two parties needed to work together.
The CBS post-election drum-beat was similar, as Harry Smith fretted over the 'No Compromise' Republicans who are seeking to dismantle Obamacare. He also discounted their fiscally conservative legislative goals, saying mockingly, "So the equation then is lower taxes, lower the deficit, and the jobs will come flooding in?"

A recoil against liberalism

By George F. Will
Thursday, November 4, 2010

Unwilling to delay until tomorrow mistakes that could be made immediately, Democrats used 2010 to begin losing 2012. Trying to preemptively drain the election of its dangerous (to Democrats) meaning, all autumn Democrats described the electorate as suffering a brain cramp, an apoplexy of fear, rage, paranoia, cupidity - something. Any explanation would suffice as long as it cast what voters were about to say as perhaps contemptible and certainly too trivial to be taken seriously by the serious.
It is amazing the ingenuity Democrats invest in concocting explanations of voter behavior that erase what voters always care about, and this year more than ever - ideas. This election was a nationwide recoil against Barack Obama's idea of unlimited government.
The more he denounced Republicans as the party of "no," the better Republicans did. His denunciations enabled people to support Republicans without embracing them as anything other than impediments to him.
He had defined himself as a world-class whiner even before Rahm Emanuel, a world-class flatterer, declared that Obama had dealt masterfully with "the toughest times any president has ever faced" - quite a claim, considering that before the first president from Illinois was even inaugurated, seven of the then-34 states had seceded. Today's president from Illinois, a chronic campaigner and incontinent complainer who is uninhibited by considerations of presidential dignity, has blamed his difficulties on:
George W. Bush, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, the Supreme Court, a Cincinnati congressman (John Boehner), Karl Rove, Americans for Prosperity and other "groups with harmless-sounding names" (Hillary Clinton's "vast right-wing conspiracy" redux), "shadowy third-party groups" (they are as shadowy as steam calliopes), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and, finally, the American people. They have deeply disappointed him by being impervious to "facts and science and argument."
Actually, as the distilled essence of progressivism, he should feel ratified by Tuesday's repudiation. The point of progressivism is that the people must progress up from their backwardness. They cannot do so unless they are pulled toward the light by a government composed of the enlightened - experts coolly devoted to facts and science.
The progressive agenda is actually legitimated by the incomprehension and anger it elicits: If the people do not resent and resist what is being done on their behalf, what is being done is not properly ambitious. If it is comprehensible to its intended beneficiaries, it is the work of insufficiently advanced thinkers.
Of course the masses do not understand that the only flaw of the stimulus was its frugality, and that Obamacare's myriad coercions are akin to benevolent parental discipline. If the masses understood what progressives understand, would progressives represent a real vanguard of progress?
Of course the progressive agenda must make infinitely elastic the restraints imposed by the Founders' Constitution and its principles of limited government. Moving up from them - from the Founders and their anachronistic principles - is the definition of progress.
Recently, Newsweek's Jonathan Alter decided, as the president has decided, that what liberals need is not better ideas but better marketing of the ones they have: "It's a sign of how poorly liberals market themselves and their ideas that the word 'liberal' is still in disrepute despite the election of the most genuinely liberal president that the political culture of this country will probably allow."
"Despite"? In 2008, Democrats ran as Not George Bush. In 2010, they ran as Democrats. Hence, inescapably, as liberals, or at least as obedient to liberal leaders. Hence Democrats' difficulties.
Responding to Alter, George Mason University economist Don Boudreaux agreed that interest-group liberalism has indeed been leavened by idea-driven liberalism. Which is the problem.
"These ideas," Boudreaux says, "are almost exclusively about how other people should live their lives. These are ideas about how one group of people (the politically successful) should engineer everyone else's contracts, social relations, diets, habits, and even moral sentiments." Liberalism's ideas are "about replacing an unimaginably large multitude of diverse and competing ideas . . . with a relatively paltry set of 'Big Ideas' that are politically selected, centrally imposed, and enforced by government, not by the natural give, take and compromise of the everyday interactions of millions of people."
This was the serious concern that percolated beneath the normal froth and nonsense of the elections: Is political power - are government commands and controls - superseding and suffocating the creativity of a market society's spontaneous order? On Tuesday, a rational and alarmed American majority said "yes."


A return to the norm

A return to the norm

By Charles Krauthammer
Friday, November 5, 2010

For all the turmoil, the spectacle, the churning - for all the old bulls slain and fuzzy-cheeked freshmen born - the great Republican wave of 2010 is simply a return to the norm. The tide had gone out; the tide came back. A center-right country restores the normal congressional map: a sea of interior red, bordered by blue coasts and dotted by blue islands of ethnic/urban density.
Or to put it numerically, the Republican wave of 2010 did little more than undo the two-stage Democratic wave of 2006-2008 in which the Democrats gained 54 House seats combined (precisely the size of the anti-Democratic wave of 1994). In 2010 the Democrats gave it all back, plus about an extra 10 seats or so for good - chastening - measure.

Get to Work Repealing Obamacare

During his post-election press conference Wednesday, President Barack Obama was asked: "As you’re well aware, obviously, a lot of Republicans ran against your health care law. Some have called for repealing the law. I’m wondering, sir, if you believe that health care reform that you worked so hard on is in danger at this point, and whether there’s a threat, as a result of this election."
The President replied:
Well, I know that there’s some Republican candidates who won last night who feel very strongly about it. I’m sure that this will be an issue that comes up in discussions with the Republican leadership. As I said before, though, I think we’d be misreading the election if we thought that the American people want to see us for the next two years relitigate arguments that we had over the last two years.
The President just doesn't get it. According to the national exit poll just 16% of voters want to leave Obamacare as is. A full 48% of voters want to see it outright repealed and another 31% want to see it changed in some way.
Our government has no right to enact legislation to force any citizen to purchase a commodity, good or service.  It's that simple.  Repeal it or just strike it down as unconstitutional, just get rid of it.
