The Erosion of Free Speech

The Erosion of Free Speech

Who died before they collected Social Security?

The numbers look accurate -- or at least very close. BTW, guess who will be paying a big chunk of what it will take to re-construct Baltimore after the riots? And to aid refugees and re-build infrastructure after the natural disasters in Nepal and Chile, wars in Ukraine, Iraq, Syria, Yeman, and other hotspots around the world? Look no farther than your own wallet, friend. 

 
Hmmm.

I did not snopes this....

 

 
 




  

  Want to see your representative do the "Washington-two-step".  Ask this question.      
   
                        

    
   
 
Who died before they collected Social Security? 
 
KEEP PASSING THIS AROUND UNTIL   
EVERY ONE HAS HAD THEOPPORTUNITY TO READ IT...       
THIS IS SURE SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!!!!      
   
THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH THE  
GOVERNMENT'S CALCULATION OF AVAILABLE SOCIAL SECURITY IS THEY FORGOT   
TO FIGURE IN THE PEOPLE WHO DIED BEFORE THEY EVER COLLECTED A SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK!!!       
   
WHERE DID THAT MONEY GO?       
   
 
Remember, not only did you and I 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.  
Read that again.  
   
Did you see where the Government paid in one single penny?  
We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a Government bank to insure you and me that we would have a retirement check from the money we put in, not the Government.  
   
Now they are calling the money we put in an entitlement when we reach the age to take it back.  
If you calculate the future invested value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer's contribution) at a simple 5% interest (less than what the Government pays on the money that it borrows).  
   
After 49 years of working you'd have $892,919.98. If you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you're 95 if you retire at age 65) 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 MADOFF EVER DID.       
 
Entitlement my foot; I paid cash for my social security insurance!  
Just because they borrowed the money for other government spending, doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!!  
   
Remember the benefits for members of Congress?  
+            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 social security retirement payments entitlements?  
   
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 it's time for us to collect, the government is running out of money.  
   
Why did the government borrow from it in the first place?  It was supposed to be in a locked box, not part of the general fund.  
 
Sad isn't it?       
99% of people won't have the guts to forward this.       
I'm in the 1%   
--       
   
  
 
                        
 



















































 

Interesting reading.  OK, Johnson raided SS to pay for Vietnam War, Bush's war raised our
debt, and Obama has broken all previous debt and spending records.  Cannot win with either party!

Please Read! Maxine's very best one yet......!



IN GOD WE TRUST
 
 
 
  

  
 
Maxine's Best One Yet!

 
   
 
One
of Maxine's very best!!

Minorities


We need 
to show more sympathy
for these people.

They travel miles in the 
heat.


They risk their lives crossing a 
border.


They don't get paid enough
wages.


They do jobs that others won't do 
or are afraid to do.

*
They live in crowded
conditions 
among a people who 
speak a different 
language.
*
They rarely see their families,
and they face adversity all day ~
every day.
*
I'm not 
talking about illegal Mexicans 
~
I'm talking 
about our troops!

Doesn't it seem strange that so
many are willing to lavish all kinds
of social benefits on illegal’s, 
but don't support our troops?
Wouldn't it be great if we took
the $360,000,000,000 (that's billion)
we spend on illegal’s every 
year, and spent it on our troops!!!


Please pass this on;
this is worth the 
short time it takes!


A veteran is someone who,
at one point in their life, 
wrote a blank check
made payable to
The United States of America for any amount, up to 
and including their life.
 
 
   
  
      
And gave me the right to send this to anyone that I please!
