Franklin Delano. Roosevelt
32nd. President, Democrat
Terms of Office March 4, 1933 , to April 12, 1945  

Our Social Security
Franklin Delano. Roosevelt <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franklin_D._Roosevelt>  (Terms of Office March 4, 1933, to April 12, 1945), a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program.  He Promised:
        
1)     That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary,
2)     That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first   $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program,

3)     That the money the participants elected to put Into the Program would be deductible from Their income for tax purposes each year,
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
5)     That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.
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:

Dwight David Eisenhower <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dwight_D_Eisenhower>
34th. President, Republican,
Term Of Office: January 20, 1953 to January 20, 1961 

In 1958 is the first year that Congress, not President Eisenhower, voted to remove funds from Social Security and put it into the General Fund for Congress to spend. 
It was a democratically controlled Congress.
Congress’s logic at that time was that there was so much money in Social Security Fund that it would never run out / be used up for the purpose it was intended / set aside for.

James Earl Carter, Jr
(Jimmy Carter <http://en.wikipedia..org/wiki/Jimmy_Carter> )
39th  President, Democrat
Term of Office: January 20, 1977 to January 20, 198

Question:   Which Political Party decided to start giving Annuity payments to immigrants?
  
AND MY FAVORITE:  

ANSWER:  
That’s right! JAMES EARL CARTER, JR.  (JIMMY CARTER)  (DEMOCRAT, TERM OF OFFICE:   JANUARY 20, 1977 TO JANUARY 20, 1981 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!

If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of Awareness will be planted and maybe changes WILL evolve! ..   Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully sure of what isn’t so.  But it’s worth a try.  
How many people can YOU send this to?   
Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.  
AND CONGRESS GIVES THEMSELVES 100% RETIREMENT FOR ONLY SERVING ONETERM!!!

What Ever Happened to the WHOPPER?

So yesterday I developed an irresistible urge for a quick hot juicy burger. Coincidently I was at that very moment driving right toward the entrance of a drive through…Burger King – Home of the all American WHOPPER! As I spun my wheels sharply to the right so not to miss the driveway the saliva began to flow. I’m not kidding, I was drooling. All I could think about was that quarter pound flame broiled ground beef sandwich stacked with tomatoes, lettuce, onions, pickles with mayo mustard and catsup. Back in 1971 it was so wide and thick I could hardly hold it with one hand. I usually had it cut in half just to facilitate its polite inoffensive consumption. Remember the slogan “It takes two hands to handle the Whopper”?

whopperAs I perused the outdoor menu, crowded with more choices than I coud ever imagine at a burger joint, there it was…the WHOPPER! But the options had changed a little. My choice was either a single, double or triple. TRIPLE? Who could ever consume a sandwich that was not only too big to hold with one hand but with 3 huge patties stacked between those two plate size buns? Well, to each his own. “I’ll take a regular Whopper and a medium coke,”I told the speaker phone outside my driver side window. I could not wait to dig into that luscious piece of heaven. I took the bag from the pimple faced kid and drove to the first open parking spot I could find. I reached in – pulled out the paper wrapped bit of nostalgia that so affected my glands – but what did I see? A drooping soggy sloppy keizer roll the size of my wife’s hand. Nothing at all like what I had remembered from back in the day. I thought, “what ever happened to the whopper”? 

So this burger, like everything else wonderful in our lives, we want to experience again in the same way we remember it, fails to meet our expectations! “The good ole days” will never be again. So hang it up, enjoy what you have in the now and stop wondering what ever happened to the Whopper!
