NRA Checks the So-Called Fact Checkers

In this News Minute from the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, Jennifer Zahrn reports that news fact checker Politifact got it wrong when they looked into the Obama Administration’s attempt to remove the gun rights of millions of Americans receiving Social Security and disability benefits. Their staff checked with Bloomberg and Snopes – but failed to consult the most important source of all – federal gun laws.

Ticked Off…..

Alan Simpson, a former Senator from Wyoming, calls senior citizens the “Greediest Generation“, as he compared “Social Security” to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats .      
       
Here’s a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana …

I think she is a little ticked off!  She also tells it like it is!        

     
“Hey, Alan, let’s get a few things straight!!!!!      
1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for FIFTY YEARS.      
       
2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).      
       
3. My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in ‘an interest bearing account’ for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud.      
       
4. Recently, just like Lucy and Charlie Brown, you and “your ilk” pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age, 67. NOW, you and your “shill commission” are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.      
       
5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from day one, and now “you” propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because “you” mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.      
       
6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you “incompetents” spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.      
       
7. To
    add insult to injury, you label us “greedy” for calling “bullshit”  to your incompetence . Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU:      
       1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?      
       2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?      
       3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?      
       4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?      
       
It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the “greedy” ones. It is you and your fellow thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes, your job and retirement security at our expense, you leech.      
       
That’s right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.  And you can take that to the bank you miserable son of a bitch.      
       
NO, I did not stutter.      
       
P.S. And stop calling Social Security benefits “entitlements”.   WHAT AN INSULT!!!!      
I have been paying in to the SS system for 45 years.   It’s my money-give it back to me the way the system was designed and stop patting yourself on the back like you are being generous by doling out these monthly checks.”

GOA Calls for Resignation of VA Secretary Eric Shinseki

GOA Calls for Resignation of
VA Secretary Eric Shinseki
“The most recent reports now list that number [of disarmed veterans] around 175,000.” — Human Events, March 23, 2014

———————————————————————————————

Within the past week, Gun Owners of America received an e-mail from a member being treated by the VA (Department of Veterans Affairs).  The member was also receiving Social Security benefits, and Social Security had appointed a guardian to manage his financial affairs. 

The member wrote us because the VA, based on the Social Security guardian, was moving to take his guns away. 

Although it is Standard Operating Procedure for the VA to appoint its own guardians and use this to justify its gun ban on more than 175,000 veterans, it now appears to us that the VA is searching for new “gun ban excuses” to strip even more veterans of their constitutional rights. 

Which brings us to VA Secretary Eric Shinseki.  It appears that the Obama administration is so busy using the VA to strip veterans of their gun rights that it doesn’t have time to provide them with medical treatment. 

Shinseki was dragged before a Senate hearing Thursday to explain massive waiting lists for treatment.  High level executives at the VA ignored warnings that these lists existed, and agency officials issued falsified letters to conceal them.  Altogether, these delays may have resulted in the deaths of 40 or more veterans at the Phoenix location alone.  The scandal has now spread to at least 10 states, and seems to reflect an endemic problem with the VA.

Shinseki’s response?  He is pushing an Inspector General investigation which will be completed in August.  But even liberal Democrats have questioned how many veterans will die between now and then as a result of the department’s misplaced priorities. 

As a result, the American Legion has called to Shinseki’s removal. 

Why does this matter to gun owners? 

The answer is this:  The VA appears to be too busy with gun bans to do its job. 

“We’ve known that combat veterans are being systematically stripped of their rights for some time now,” says Dan Cannon, the founder and editor of GunsSaveLives.net. “There have been numerous reports of veterans losing their gun rights due to seeking counseling or help with depression, PTSD, or for simply not having their financial affairs in perfect order.”

We’re sure that the Obama administration will counter that it doesn’t take much time at all to take away a veteran’s constitutional rights.  But no matter how many personnel or how much time it takes to promote Obama’s anti-gun agenda, it is too much!

This is another example of a phenomenon which is pervasive in the Obama administration:  Politics over performance. 

And it’s not going to stop until someone loses his job for pursuing Obama’s anti-gun agenda, at the expense of his department’s mission. 

ACTION: Write your Senator and Representative. Encourage them to stand for the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding veterans by demanding VA Secretary Eric Shinseki’s resignation.

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.

Letter to Alan Simpson, old guy and long time Politician and another damn good reason for term limits!!

I don’t think ‘pissed’ really covers it…
