Who died before they collected Social Security?

Who died before they collected Social Security?

 

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 I 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.

Another thing with me…. I have two deceased husbands who died in their 50’s, (one was 51 and the other one was 59 before one percent of their social security could be drawn. I worked all my life and am drawing 100% on my own social security. Their S.S. money will never have one cent drawn from what they paid into S.S. all their lives.

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 Congressional benefits? — 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?

We’re “broke” and we can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, or Homeless. 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.

LTEs From Amy Klobuchar Democrat and David Bly Democrat..

Summarized..

This weekend’s Northfield News had letters from Amy Klobuchar and David Bly. Interesting similarity in their principles: petty, cheapo socialism.

US Senator Amy Klobuchar: “Seniors Deserve Affordable Prescription Drug Prices”
MN Rep. Bly reports on his first bills of his second career to “help us”.
Klobuchar’s bill:The Medicare Prescription Drug Price Negotiation Act “will empower Medicare to negotiate the BEST POSSIBLE PRICE for drugs” for me.
Is that the lowest drug price for the government and me? Or the necessary price to induce new drug discoveries? Klobuchar thinks she knows better than the marketplace.
Bly’s HF355 “improves access to mental health education” for grade 6 to 12 students. Ah, E D U C A T I O N will solve mental illness, prevent gun violence ….
Bly’s HF364 will increase K-12 funding (naturally) for year round independent study programs “to grow and learn outside the normal school day”.
Obama too has a new program to improve education outside the normal school day. His preschool Federal bureaucracy would supplement mothers care from Birth to Head Start.
Note in all cases, the Democrats want to provide steady, small, invidious, incremental growth of the nanny state, supplanting the family and the market.

National Coalition Vows to Fight Erosion of Gun Rights

The basic arguments put forward in the letter are that:

1. Background Checks Don’t Impede Criminals.
Criminals obtain guns through illicit means such as theft and by having friends and associates with clean criminal records purchase guns for them, while rampage killers often have no criminal or serious mental health record to impede them. The Newtown Connecticut murderer was the only recent rampage killer who didn’t pass a background check to obtain his weapons–stealing his and murdering the legal owner–and none of them obtained guns from private sellers.

2. Injecting Government into Private Transactions is Unproductive and Dangerous.
Purchasing a firearm from a licensed dealer is the only exercise of an enumerated constitutional right which requires government permission. Every time a person purchases a gun through a licensed dealer, they are investigated by the government, even if they already own dozens of firearms, and even if they have just purchased a firearm in the previous month, week, or day. The infrastructure for these redundant checks costs taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars every year, and adding private transactions into the mix would cost millions more.

Money which could be much better spent on programs that have been proven to actually reduce crime. There has never been a study produced demonstrating a significant reduction in crime due to the background check system.

The current load on the background check system from dealers is often overwhelming, causing long delays and system shutdowns. Including private transactions in the process would exacerbate those problems and could result in a complete stoppage of all legal sales as easily as flipping a switch. These checks also provide the foundation for a federal firearm registration scheme–something tens of millions of responsible gun owners vehemently oppose. Registration in New York State recently resulted in hundreds of gun owners being placed at risk when a newspaper published names and addresses garnered from registration files. Several of those gun owners were subsequently burglarized.

3. Compromise on Background Checks is a Losing Proposition.
There is no gain for politicians, firearms retailers, or the public in any compromise on firearm rights, and the proposals for “universal background checks” are no exception. Few politicians have ever been harmed politically for opposing gun control, but support for gun control has ruined the careers of hundreds.

The backlash from passage of the Clinton “assault weapon ban” alone was credited with retiring almost half of the House of Representatives and numerous members of the Senate. No firearm manufacturer or retailer has had their business significantly hurt by being supportive of firearm owner rights, but the few who have made concessions to gun control advocates have paid a hefty price.

4. Don’t Just Do Something; Do Something That Works.
Politicians can make a significant impact on crime and rampage killings by focusing on strategies that have been proven to work like keeping violent criminals behind bars and doing away with imaginary Gun-Free Zones.

The letter concludes by declaring that restricting lawful access and use of guns will never deny illicit access and use of guns, and by putting politicians and others on notice that the group’s members will actively work to defend the Second Amendment against any encroachment and will exact a political or monetary toll on any who stand against them.

Farts. Betrayed. Ted.

Healthcare Paid for With Unicorn Farts

There will be many words from many people about much of the President’s State of the Union speech from last night.

I will only focus on one line, which distinctly highlights again just how out to lunch the man is when it comes to real healthcare reforms in this country.

During his speech the President said this:

“We’ll bring down costs by changing the way our government pays for Medicare, because our medical bills shouldn’t be based on the number of tests ordered or days spent in the hospital – they should be based on the quality of care that our seniors receive.”

In other words, we should stop paying for tests based on the number performed and we should stop paying for hospitals based on the number of days in which a patient stays in the hospital. Instead, we should pay based on the quality of care given, which I guess means if suddenly your stool sample turns to gold, we’ll charge more.

His approach makes no sense. Healthcare cannot be paid for based on quality of care without introducing subjective standards that will themselves drive up the costs of healthcare. He might as well claim he does not want to pay for healthcare at all or, at best, will cover the costs with unicorn farts.

The President’s speech was a defense of big government.

He started his speech referencing John F. Kennedy.

John F. Kennedy said, “ask not what your country can do for youask what you can do for your country.”

Barack Obama now only wants to tell us what Uncle Sam will do for us so that we need do nothing for ourselves. If he is successful we will each be too dependent on the federal government to set our own course in life. . . . please click here for the rest of the post →

This Week’s ‘Alpha Jackass’ Award

“[I]f there’s even one thing we can do to keep our children and our community safe — [if] there’s just one step we can take to prevent more families from feeling what they feel after they’ve lost a loved one — we’ve got an obligation to take that step.” –Barack Obama, still stumping for gun control on nothing but emotion

So he’s trying to deflect the fact that AR-15s and other defensive weapons are responsible for very few deaths. They are, first and foremost, designed for defending Liberty, which is why the NeoComs want them outlawed.

About the Affordable Care Act – ObamaCare

Ultimately, our success will depend upon whether we get busy taking care of ourselves and each other. If we had already done that, we wouldn’t have needed the ACA to begin with. Being personally and socially responsible is the only philosophy that can make healthcare reform affordable for everyone. When it comes down to it, why should anyone hate that?

BROKE

 

 

This should be read and understood by all Americans Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature,


It is now official you are ALL corrupt morons:

  • The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775 You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the poor” and they only want more.
  • Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.
  • Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.

You have FAILED in every “government service” you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??
