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 and are 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?
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 violating 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!

The military, in the form of an M16 [5.56mm] uses a .22 caliber round.
I preferred the M14, 7.62mm and more reliable.
Of course nothing compares to a .50 cal.
To be technically accurate, it's a .223 round. I fired expert with the M16 in the Air Force and thought it resembled something that Mattel might produce.

‘Duck Dynasty’ vs.‘Pajama Boy’: Two Americas?
But I’ll make another observation: This may be an attack on “unsophisticated” country folks as much as it is an attack on orthodox Christianity.
When you consider the more effete, cosmopolitan America that “Pajama Boy” represents, you’ll get a sense for why the Duck Dynasty folks are out of touch with today’s acceptable norms. There is a huge schism between red state America and blue state America, and these two stories seem to symbolize the yawning chasm.
I’ve always felt that this same dichotomy was at least partly to blame for why the mainstream media hated Sarah Palin so much. It wasn’t merely her conservative positions, but the fact that she was from Alaska — and that she never attempted to conform to their manner of speaking, style, or customs. She didn’t culturally evolve.(Kirsten Gillibrand no longer sleeps with two rifles under her bed, but Sarah from Alaska still goes hunting!)

Palin showed her inability to learn, talk about and comprehend issues on that level time and time again, it was not just one interview.

Putin: NSA surveillance needed to fight terrorism
5 hrs ago | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: SFGate
President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that the National Security Agency surveillance is necessary to fight terrorism, but added that the government needs to "limit the appetite" of the agency with a clear set of ground rules.

=====

The following will assess the above story:
Putin has granted pardon to some people, including the Pussy Riot Band , Greenpeace and so on, recently.
THE focus of US on targeting terrorists is confused with targeting on criminals, such as those of illegal substances possession, criminal gangs of illegal activities, and other crimes, etc.
But, US by collecting a large base of data by spying and hacking, simply isn't able to distinguish good people from illicit ones, to even have lots of accidents, to victimize and crank down the privacy of many innocent people'e freedom and liberty rights.
If US often gets the wrong people by having calling accidents by policing, it is really the hypocrisy of incompetence.
US people's rights of justice , civil liberty value, freedom of expression and speech, privacy rights, etc,.have been eroded during the time of late Reagan period when middle class was also going downhill since then.
Some people do not know facts--Russia has gay clubs while many countries don't have, such as China, Singapore, Korea, and so on.
IN other words, gays in Russia just run their lives to keep to their privacy.
The Russia today is totally misconstrued by some other people as they are unable to conceive the real facts.
Russia has many arts theaters, comedy, entertainment shows and many good modern design of work environment to fashion.
Many of those who are well off, dine very well and have good parties.
News media AND OUTLETS cannot be arbitrarily refused licensing.
If Putin does not like News media criticize him, he cannot do anything about it. He does not close news associations.
If he tries to those to use others to do something about them, it is up to others whether they can do so.
He has tied to shake hands with media to see they have opportunities to hear whether they would like him to say to people.
Unlike China and other countries, that is not the case.
China even tries to fish across the line to meddle the free news media in Hong Kong.
IN US, before and just after Iraq war just started by Bush, some radio talk shows and others were rid of by radical Bush associates, and people were fired.
During Nixon time, free news press and other media were suppressed.
Where are facts of truths?
