FW: Fwd: Your Social Security Card!

No wonder we are all so angry.  Good info.
Have a great Sunday

Good history lesson…

Your SS Card - did you know?
History Lesson on Your Social Security Card.

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. 

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 democrat
controlled House and Senate. 

------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -- 
Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax 
deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding? 

A: The Democrat Party. 

------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ----- 
Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social 
Security annuities? 

A: The Democrat 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? 

Jimmy Carter
 and the Democrat Party. 
Immigrants moved into this country, 
and at age 65, 
began to receive Social Security payments! The 
Democrat 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 low information citizens believe 

MRWD Housekeeping Post for Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Greetings from MRWD HQ.

I apologize, as I stated in a previous update, I was attempting to cut down on the noise on the blog.  Some of the commenters advocated that I “ban” certain people that were trolling/sockpuppeting on the comments.  

Dave and I both talked about it, but doing so would mean that we would have to eliminate the ability to comment anonymously.  I really like the comments that anonymous users have posted up, and I resolved to stay on top of the comments and remove the ones that were obviously trolling.

Although deleting comments was fun and amusing, lately, I’ve been pretty busy and have not had the time to check in as often as I would like.  

What that has led to is a handful of interesting comments and what seems to be random noise.  Currently, with a heavy heart, I removed the anonymous comments.  I apologize if this is an inconvenience to any of you out there. I have thought to myself that the noise on the site is an accurate reflection of the current political times that we reside in.  

Thoughts? Any other suggestions?

Thanks again, and please keep 'em coming to myrightwingdad@gmail.com,

Yes, they were the good ole days!

"Scroll down......



Long ago and far away, in a land that time forgot,
Before the days of Dylan , or the dawn of Camelot.
There lived a race of innocents, and they were you and me,

For Ike was in the White House in that land where we were born,
Where navels were for oranges, andPeyton Place was porn.

 We longed for love and romance, and waited for our Prince,
Eddie Fisher married Liz, and no one's seen him since.

We danced to 'Little Darlin,' and sang to 'Stagger Lee'
And cried for Buddy Holly in the Land That Made Me, Me.

Only girls wore earrings then, and 3 was one too many,
And only boys wore flat-top cuts, except for Jean McKinney.

 And only in our wildest dreams did we expect to see
A boy named George with Lipstick, in the Land That Made Me, Me.

 We fell for Frankie Avalon, Annette was oh, so nice,
And when they made a movie, they never made it twice..

 We didn't have a Star Trek Five, or Psycho Two and Three,
Or Rocky-Rambo Twenty in the Land That Made Me, Me.

 Miss Kitty had a heart of gold, and Chester had a limp,
And Reagan was a Democrat whose co-star was a chimp.

 We had a Mr. Wizard, but not a Mr. T,
And Oprah couldn't talk yet, in the Land That Made Me, Me.

 We had our share of heroes, we never thought they'd go,
At least not Bobby Darin, or Marilyn Monroe.
For youth was still eternal, and life was yet to be,
And Elvis was forever in the Land That Made Me, Me.

 We'd never seen the rock band that was Grateful to be Dead,
And Airplanes weren't named Jefferson, and Zeppelins were not Led.

 And Beatles lived in gardens then, and Monkees lived in trees,
Madonna was Mary in the Land That Made Me, Me.

 We'd never heard of microwaves, or telephones in cars,
And babies might be bottle-fed, but they were not grown in jars.

 And pumping iron got wrinkles out, and 'gay' meant fancy-free,
And dorms were never co-Ed in the Land That Made Me, Me.

 We hadn't seen enough of jets to talk about the lag,
And microchips were what was left at the bottom of the bag.

 And hardware was a box of nails, and bytes came from a flea,
And rocket ships were fiction in the Land That Made Me, Me.

 T-Birds came with portholes, and side shows came with freaks,
And bathing suits came big enough to cover both your cheeks.

 And Coke came just in bottles, and skirts below the knee,
And Castro came to power near the Land That Made Me, Me.

 We had no Crest with Fluoride, we had no Hill Street Blues,
We had no patterned pantyhose or Lipton herbal tea
Or prime-time ads for those dysfunctions in the Land That Made Me, Me.

There were no golden arches, no Perrier to chill,
And fish were not called Wanda, and cats were not called Bill

 And middle-aged was 35 and old was forty-three,
And ancient were our parents in the Land That Made Me, Me.

 But all things have a season, or so we've heard them say,
And now instead of Maybelline we swear by Retin-A.
They send us invitations to join AARP,
We've come a long way, baby, from the Land That Made Me, Me.

So now we face a brave new world in slightly larger jeans,
And wonder why they're using smaller print in magazines.
And we tell our children's children of the way it used to be,
Long ago and far away in the Land That Made Me, Me.

If you didn't grow up in the fiftys,
You missed the greatest time in history,
Hope you enjoyed this read as much as I did.
If So, PLEASE FORWARD this note to
Someone who will appreciate these memories...
