Standing in a Garage Don’t Make You a Cadillac …

Standing in the garage does not make you a Cadillac, or Saying you are a Christian Patriot does not make you a Patriot or a Christian.

I have often written of the ugly change in our culture, especially, where it deals with the Christian community and of course, the Political corruption of progressivism and socialism. It is quite true that mankind has always been destined to progress and move forward as he moved more and more toward God and that was from the time of the Garden lesson of God means what He says.
While writing my book, “A Splintered Nation and A Broken Church,” I went back to show the Christian intent of the Mayflower Pac, to not only protect Christians but, those non-believers who were readying the disembarking of the Ship and establishing the Colony. The government of that Colony knew they had to protect the non-believers from a state religion while protecting the religion of the Colony, it is my opinion, that it really was a matter of survival that they all commit to stay and make it through the winter and the next several years of building.
Nevertheless, as the book progresses through the political and protestant corruption on a hopscotch ride on the milk train, stopping at the points of particular interest with Presidents, Political Parties, and various battles in the Holy War waged by Satan against the Christian church which is real and continues to gain in intensity.
While writing my book, which I hope will open eyes of Christians and non-believers as well, about what the Holy War against Christianity has in a large part been enabled by Modernity, or rather a slow growth of liberalism, which over the past four decades has been effectively overtaken by socialism. However, there is no way that the majority of our nation would have simply given up our Sovereign Republic and Constitutional Freedoms for a Socialist regime and a Global Socialist Union.
Since the 60s with liberal celebrities who committed high treason during the Viet Nam war along with hot-dog John McCain or as some of his fellow prisoners of war called him “Songbird.” However, it is in the 60s that the Democrats had to make a decision in what to do about the Republican Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. a Black Baptist Pastor who had had enough of the Jim Crow laws of the Democratic South.
Dr. King was the public figure who was not a Democrat in the issue, The Democrats who had regained control of the South after Reconstruction. Oh yes, the Democrat Party – the founders of the KKK, the Southern States passing State Legislation which became known as the “Jim Crow” laws, the “Equal but no the same” Democrats. It was Dr. King that took the Civil Rights right to Washington. Kennedy had no way to go, so he went against his own party in the South, and won the loyalty of the blacks, that loyalty to the Democrat Party quickly became shackles and they once again were on a plantation – The Democrat Political Plantation.
For Dr. King’s participation, he was killed. For Kennedy, he was killed, and for his Brother the AG and sure winner of a campaign, he was killed as well. it does leave one to wonder how far the leaders of the Democrats would go, to keep the black citizens on a plantation, the Democrat plantation.
For five or so decades, one of the main things that have stood in the way of making this a socialist nation has been the church. Oh yes, Christian values and the defeat of our values meant that the Christians needed to be persecuted and the Bible discredited. That war started a long time ago, and one of the main issues for the founding of our nation, religious freedom, and all that goes along with it. It is not that God didn’t keep up with man’s advancements, He didn’t heave to, he didn’t have to change anything, the man simply needed to slow down and be blessed with the work of their hands and minds. Mankind needed to listen to God, and not fall to their own understanding.
The moral values of our nation stood in the way of evil progression. Moral values were written into the Constitution protecting the Christians and the non-Christian from the evil of the world. It has never been applied without flaw, the Constitution nor Christianity, however, without the Constitution and Christianity we would have been a communist union within just a few years after the 2nd world war and the formation of Socialist President FDR’s United Nations. Of course, he served more terms than any other president and yes, helped bring us out of a world depression.
But he was nevertheless, a socialist and when he put the United Nations together he had hopes that socialism would take hold and the world could be governed by one supreme government while keeping their identity and borders but the borders would be open and in addition to being the citizens of that nation we would, more importantly, be citizen-subjects of the world … in short a one world order and that is how the UN charter was originated under the façade of global peace.
Well my, my, my, that is a quandary because socialism to work would mean that no one is actually free. The First Amendment, Second and the rest would have to be subject to the UN Council of unelected officials. For the Christian, that would mean we would no longer be able to practice our religion, and for the Atheist? They would be in the same boat with no protection from a “state religion.” Perhaps, that is a bit too simply put, but truth be known true Christianity and socialism cannot be the bed-fellows that liberals falsely claim. Not that Christianity (as it presently is in its broken stage), is only compatible with Theocracy and that is not likely to happen until Jesus comes. Then, as promised it will work in total peace for a thousand years.
The reason for me joining the Black Robe Regiment was that it was a non-denominational Christian presence in our war on liberalism and corruption of government it was, what seemed to be a Christian “regiment,” in the American war against corruption/liberalism/socialism/globalism and all of its anti-American hoards. Patriot American Christians who stand for the Constitution and the sovereign free republic.
Of course, all Christians should be patriots although all patriots are not necessarily Christian, as a matter of theological fact, not all Christians are Christian. That fact is, or rather could be a problem for the Regiment to reach its potential in making a difference in the battle we face. So as Christians we must examine ourselves, whether we be in the faith; prove (test) ourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? (2Cor. 13:5 NKJV (my paraphrase).
I am not suggesting the Christians who are part of The Black Robe Regiment are not Christian, no not at all, as a matter of fact, it is my studied opinion that each is just what they say they are. I believe, they really want to get involved and commit to winning the war! Some joined to show support for the fighting regiment. The Regiment needs the support and more members who are committed to Jesus Christ and are patriotic conservatives with really thick skin!
I expect to be put out of the Black Robe Regiment because of my problem with liberalism. That is where our national problem is rooted. Christians have been persecuted since before they were first called Christians at Antioch. But, we can’t blame Jesus for not warning us, he said we would be persecuted for His name’s sake and that the world would hate us because it hated Him first.
It is said that more than half of the professing Christians don’t ever vote, and that of those most are not even registered to vote. For some reason, as Christians, they don’t consider it an obligation to vote even engage in politics what so ever. Could it be, that liberalism has intimidated them into believing Hugo Blacks Supreme Court Decision about Church and State? Or maybe when the Supreme Court Decision to okay the execution of millions of unborn children? Perhaps it could have been the embarrassment of Prohibition brought on by the Christian temperance ladies.
Christianity and over zealous preachers and leaders have made some huge mistakes since landing in Boston Harbor, and that is to be accepted and considered a lesson in how not to delineate the love of Jesus to people not of the church. Speaking of the church, well, I would refer to the Seven Churches of Asia Minor, and how, like the Hebrew Children had such a hard time getting it right. The church like a pendulum swings to and fro on “saved to by grace through faith unto good works. We have some sort of problem with church doctrines and of course, what we should be doing in Biblical doctrines.
Since the landing at Boston Harbor, the Christian church has been hot and cold, and instead of sticking to the Bible we as Christians have followed after our own appetites and although in most cases that has been trying to please God and man at the same time and that is impossible as you may well know. No, our problem is sort of explained in the Seven Deadly Sins and having an easy church is one huge calling card.
Most people I know, Christian or otherwise, don’t find a great joy in being persecuted and all the name calling, and just ugliness of persecution is enough to make the strongest of souls get rather jellied. Since the 60s the world has made deep erodes into the Bible-believing church. Liberalism has brought back the liberal theology (updated), and one of the big reasons for such a broken church in America today. I will try to stay clear of the liberal theology argument and its harm to conservative Christianity, and deal with organizing Christians to take up arms against the enemy.
The “arms” in this situation is the double-edged sword and the second weapon is the vote. The enemy is far more than political ideologies, it is the root of all destruction, it is Lucifer, or rather, Satan and in my opinion the author of socialism, liberalism, liberation theology, and social justice ideologies. Ideologies that are found in a Global Socialist Union. Just one plan of thousands that the diabolical Satan has to draw on in his war against Jesus and His Church, against the guaranteed freedom of religious expression.
My endeavor, my passion is Jesus Christ, Jesus of the Bible, the Bible as the living Word of God. It is also my endeavor to protect not only religious freedom but to protect our Constitution and our sovereign free republic. The United States was founded on Christian principles fact and not as the liberals have spent 5 – 6 decades trying their level best to discredit the Christian faith, the Bible, and the Christian connection to the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. Liberals deny the religious freedom and use Justice Hugo Black’s “Separation of Church and State” decision to start the persecution of the Christian faith.
The Christian faith at this point is in critical need of another great awakening. A revival that the Christian may repent and return to our first love, the love for Christ and the excitement of being set free … “saved by grace through faith unto good works” don’t know about you but that was my first love, my first real commitment was as a young man leaving Highschool and taking the Oath of Service (office) in the Army, that oath was not infringed until my total commitment to Jesus and the Christian faith. Both were more than a head knowledge both were made from the heart. Revival is awakening that same excitement and renewing the nearly forgotten commitment. The Black Robe Regiment is the place for you to commit to pick up arms and commit to fighting head-on in a Holy War and not an easy war.
Vote go out and vote! Vote Red, vote conservative, report any suspicions of voter fraud!
Then go and check out the Black Robe Regiment … join … and pick up your cross and follow Jesus. Commit to the revival in our nation and restore our land as a Christian nation.
Many Christians wrongly think they are not supposed to get involved in politics. It is my studied opinion that not only are we supposed to get involved but are obligated to get involved, otherwise, dear Christian we get what we presently have, Broken Church and that is not what Jesus wants and is reflected in His Seven Churches of Asia Minor. Our lack of or fear of involvement has given us the liberal theology churches where it is E-A-S-Y church. liberal theology churches can be found in the five condemned by Jesus.
I may not be long for the Black Robe Regiment because of my disdain for liberal theology and liberation theology. If your church does not have in its mission statement the inerrancy, the infallibility of the Word of God, The Deity of Jesus Christ, and Salvation by Grace through Faith in Jesus unto good works and is any way politically correct then leave and find one who does … if your preachers do not preach against homosexuality, against abortion, and sin in general then run and find one that does.
If your church is not taking Jesus to the community by doing the good works and being involved in the community then you will lose, find out which one of the Seven churches your church may be like, perhaps more. Revival will never happen in a liberal church or a worldly church. Can’t, because they don’t have the intestinal fortitude get in the trenches, pick up their cross and follow Jesus. They don’t have enough Jesus in them to preach the Bible and preach against sin and corruption in the church and in our nation’s politics. Vote get out and vote!

Okay, So When are they going to fire?

Shareholders Rake Anti-Gun Dick’s CEO Over Coals During Public Shareholders Meeting

Now, Dick’s Sporting Goods is hearing from its stockholders.

Since the company reacted to the February massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School by betraying its customers who support the Second Amendment, Dick’s has been hit by the gun industry, from street-level stores to corporate decision-makers.

But at a shareholders meeting on Wednesday, Dick’s heard from people with skin in the game.

In a direct attack on Dick’s CEO Edward Stack and other members of the company’s board, shareholder David Almasi, vice president of the National Center for Public Policy Research, raked the company’s leadership over the coals.

To the company’s top officers, Almasi charged, “virtue signaling” was more important than the company’s sales.

After the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Dick’s announced it would no longer sell AR-15s (the “assault weapon” liberals hate the most these days) and would restrict firearms sales to those 21 years of age or older.

Those might be considered defensible business decisions, perhaps with worries about liabilities in mind, but Dick’s directors went even further, hiring an anti-gun Washington lobbying firm to actively work against Second Amendment freedoms in the nation’s capital.

Almasi cited that decision in particular in his attack.

Listen to the whole thing here:

After the Parkland shooting, Almasi said, “Dick’s Sporting Goods immediately engaged in corporate virtue signaling, by ending the sale of AR-15s, high-capacity magazines and other accessories. Dick’s also no longer sells guns to people until three years after they’re eligible for military service.

“In addition, Dick’s reportedly hired lobbyists to promote gun restrictions, even though you’re literally in the business of selling guns …

“The company is willfully giving up money. It’s damaged its reputation by lending its voice and its resources to those who want to abolish the Second Amendment, even while the vast majority of … citizens support the amendment,” Almasi said.

“Thirty percent of Americans own guns and another 11 percent live with someone who does. Now you’ve alienated them.”

Will Dick’s regret its anti-gun positions?

YesNo

According to Fox Business Network, Dick’s has made up for its losses in firearms-related sales in other areas and the stock has risen by 13 percent over the past month.

Liberals like the crew at ThinkProgress are crowing that that proves the Dick’s critics are wrong, but it could well be a short-term effect from the political moment. Dick’s got a lot of headlines out of its anti-gun stance, and liberals could well have decided to patronize the stories because of the publicity.

In the long-term, though, Dick’s has a vested interest in pleasing its outdoors customer base, and its anti-gun decision was a flagrant snub to millions of Americans who could well have been spending their money at Dick’s instead of at a competitor. And shareholders don’t like having company executives who are “willfully giving up money.”

It’s likely not the last time Dick’s shareholders rake the company execs over the coals.

Something to Think About…

Considering the chaotic and splintered condition of our Nation and the broken nature of our Christian church, just about anything could happen.  The Nation and Christians has to do several things.  We need to walk Circumspectly paying close attention to everything around us, pray for discernment, strength and a national Christian revival.  We must join together with our real conservative leadership and get rid of the Shadow Government and Drain the Swamp.  We know, according to Bible prophecy, that we will suffer the period of a one world order and Christians will be under great persecution, however, only God knows the appointed time.  It is my studied opinion, that the time has not yet come, and for the Christian and the Nation to continue to move through life as a free Nation, we must crush liberalism’s plan for globalization.  Pray with me for revival, with the heart of 2nd Chron 7:14.

God Bless you.

AT&T-Time Warner Merger – Mass Media Consolidation Could Lead the Way to One-Party Rule in The U.S.

Posted Thursday, June 14, 2018   |   By Collaborative Correspondent  

Time Warner ATT
Control the Media – Control the People

A vibrant and healthy democracy depends on the free marketplace of ideas.

Call it what you want. Viewpoint diversity. Access to alternative views.

In today’s media and information-driven society and culture, being able to find the opposing view on an issue, to compare the pros and cons of public policy matters or different products and services, is critical to how the American people make decisions about just about everything.

What to buy? Who to vote for? What to watch? Which music to listen to? What to wear? The plethora of choices we have today is owed entirely to the openness of the Internet and other media that facilitates and enables brand development.

But what if that process could become compromised or disrupted in a bid to control media? To control what messages were available to the public? This is the very real danger facing policymakers today in an environment increasingly moving towards mass media consolidation.

With federal judge Richard Leon’s approval of the $107 billion AT&T-Time Warner merger, allowing the two companies to combine, the floodgates are opening for content distributors like AT&T — which owns Directv — to also own much of content that plays on those platforms.

Now, Comcast is expected to bid against Disney to buy much of Fox’s media content properties.

So, what’s the problem? Besides the antitrust laws that are invoked by monopolization in any industry, mass media consolidation has meant fewer and fewer companies controlling almost all major media in the country.

A comprehensive Free Press 2018 study on major media ownership finds that just 21 corporations own all the television broadcast stations, 21 that own the radio broadcast stations, 13 that own pay television channels, 11 that own daily newspapers and 18 that own telecom and cable. That number keeps getting smaller every time there’s another merger.

A chapter on the topic in Censored 2006 by Bridget Thornton, Britt Walters and Lori Rouse, “Corporate Media is Corporate America” noted the massive overlap of individuals who sit on the boards at major media outlets and those of non-media corporations.

Then there is the dominance in tech by Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter.

Rapidly, the number of separately owned options is dwindling.

Along with media consolidation, there is also a growing call for political consolidation in Washington, D.C. — and even one-party rule.

In April, Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey retweeted an article by Peter Leyden and Ruy Teixeira that called for “Democratic One-Party Rule” in the U.S. as a means of reconciling the nation’s challenges and implementing the progressive agenda. You see, all that debate by Congress and disagreement over which direction to go in is getting in the way of that agenda, so democracy no longer functions the way they want it to. Today’s captains of the information industry are getting impatient. They want to see Utopia in their lifetimes.

It will be anything but.

But leaving that aside, forget about competitive elections, Leyden and Teixeira warn: “America can’t afford more political paralysis. One side or the other must win. This is a civil war that can be won without firing a shot. But it is a fundamental conflict between two worldviews that must be resolved in short order.”

The resolution: “Democratic One-Party Rule.”

Dorsey’s comment was astonishing, writing briefly, “Great read.” Really? What about the part where the authors called for one-party rule? What about the part where they called it a civil war? No?

Just, “Great read,” as if having one political party control the most powerful country in the world to govern with no dissent as the climatic outcome of a civil war “without firing a shot” was just an after-thought for the billionaire.

Who needs alternate viewpoints when there’s media empires to consolidate and an undemocratic agenda to implement? Just hurry up and work it into the afternoon schedule. Dictatorship by close of business. Can we get that yesterday?

Twitter like other social media giants cast themselves as an open platform, a device for free speech basically and the marketplace of ideas. But what if big media doesn’t live up to that and starts censoring political content of one of the two major parties in a bid for absolute power?

Would that be “anti-competitive” enough for Judge Leon to say it might pose an antitrust issue under federal law?

That is why the AT&T-Time Warner merger today is so important for the media landscape of tomorrow, and why the Justice Department must appeal Judge Leon’s decision, all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary.

It may not happen overnight, but we are witnessing the end of media. This is the age of medium. And if we are not careful, one day there may only be one-party rule, too. That will not lead to liberty and prosperity, but to tyranny.

Great News from the FDA leadership

FDA vs Experimental Stem Cell Drug lawsuits, investigations, and online ads

President Trump’s choice for FDA Commissioner was Dr. Scott Gottlieb. He was no stranger to FDA nor the inner workings of the field of medicine having acted in several capacities over the years in the field and in government. His qualifications were impressive as well as extensive and involved government work as well, not even the liberals could object to much about him.

According to MedCity News on December 26,2017 the man hit the office at high-speed to help get the backlog and procedures out of stasis to process applications faster and improve investigative procedures.

“Dr. Gottlieb’s first year as FDA Commissioner, he has chaperoned the agency through a blockbuster 2017 with 46 novel drug approvals to date. The final tally is the highest seen this century, surpassing the previous record holder 2015, which clocked in at 45. Both were more than double 2016’s sad tally of 22 new molecular entities (NMEs) approved.”

So is it that this is just “politics” or is there actually a sound basis for having FDA approve new drugs and oversee all? Overall, it isn’t about politics but about safety and procedures. Part of the problem has always been the length of time required to get a drug to market. Apparently Dr. Gottlieb now has a handle on that process and is making progress far beyond those of the last eight years.

One area of expertise for Dr. Gottlieb is stem cell research. In November, the FDA released new guidelines, asserting its authority over clinics, and says it will begin cracking down on those selling dangerous stem cell treatments.

Stem cell research has been around since 1968. Since that time stem cell research, trials, production, therapy, and results have been moving forward in many ways. Some have been well-documented and some research has been faked by seemingly qualified research analysis. Stem cell research has now progressed dramatically and there are countless research studies published each year in scientific journals.

Adult stem cells are already being used to treat many conditions such as heart disease and leukaemia. Researchers still have a long way to go before they completely control the regulation of stem cells. The potential is overwhelmingly positive and with continued support and research, scientists will ideally be able to harness the full power of stem cells. However, rogue groups continue to test the boundary between clinically FDA certified and experimental with no safeguards and unapproved methodology.

Back in July 2012, in the case of United States of America v. Regenerative Sciences, LLC the DC Court of Appeals ruled that their stem cell “therapy” was to be considered a product and therefore required FDA approval. Their product, Regenexx-C, was for the treatment of arthritis and orthopedic injury that involved extraction and culture of mesenchymal stem cells from the same patient which were later reinjected. After the decision the makers of Regenexx-C moved out of the U.S. to a more lenient country and placed a ban on being purchased for US markets.

Was it the right choice for the health of the patient? According to the company making Regenexx their success rate is good. This may force those wealthy enough or willing to go into deep debt to travel to their location for treatment. It also might deny solutions to other patients who don’t have the same resources here in the states.

This isn’t the only instance nor will it be the last where FDA and companies wanting to “make money” off their products clash. More than a few companies had moved out of the US over the years over issues of approval. Some have found a good market in the new country, others have bilked desperate people out of millions of dollars. In the reverse, there have been occasions when FDA approved some drug but other countries have banned the same product. Which has people questioning what they know versus what FDA approves.

The thing is leadership of FDA is a key factor in decision-making as in any government agency. And, like any other agency, it has been afflicted at times with bias and with politics. Overall though the purpose of FDA is important to insure that quality, qualifications, and procedures used will actually benefit the vulnerable patients. There have been miscalculations and recalls even with drugs that took years waiting for approval. So FDA is not foolproof but then no agency of government ever is. However, even if it is only right some of the time, it does provide a measure of relief to know that a drug has met the minimum of standards.

In April 2018, the FDA after months of warnings had DoJ issue formal complaints in Florida and California on several defendants manufacture of “stromal vascular fraction” (SVF) products from patient adipose (fat) tissue, which the companies then market as stem cell-based treatments for a host of serious conditions and diseases. Desperate people, mostly elderly, have flocked to those locations to try to get relief or get cured.

Sun Sentinel in Florida had done an investigative report back in the first days of December 2017 on the use of the product. They just released a new article on May 10th which details further what they discovered. Their investigation resulted in some serious issues not just for drug approval but for its online aspects as well:

— Some of these clinics’ medical procedures are questionable, experts say, such as injecting patients with experimental stem cell solutions in both eyes at the same time, risking blindness.

— Florida clinics use online seminars, high-tech websites and listings in the federal database ClinicalTrials.gov to market their treatments to patients. They tout Florida sunshine and tourist attractions such as fine hotels, beaches and unique shopping districts.

— Some stem cell clinics use hard-sell tactics and lead patients to rake together thousands of dollars, as insurance doesn’t cover stem cell treatments.

— State and federal regulators rarely have stepped in to stop these advertising and medical practices.

Sun’s efforts may have paid off as the DoJ and FDA have focused complaints on US Stem Cell Clinic LLC, of Sunrise, Florida, US Stem Cell, Inc., and company officers Kristin Comella and Theodore Gradel.  A separate complaint was filed the same day in the Central District of California against California Stem Cell Treatment Center Inc., of Rancho Mirage and Beverly Hills, California, Cell Surgical Network Corporation, and company owners Elliot Lander, M.D. and Mark Berman, M.D.

LA Times on April 24, 2018 ran an article about Kristin Comella. They described her this way:

“Comella, 41, who is the founder and president of the academy — crowd-pleasing, shot through with what sounded like serious science, delivered with the superficial credibility of a PhD from an unaccredited offshore university. Her pitch has made her a sought-after speaker at health industry conferences and gatherings of .longevity enthusiasts such as the annual Revolution against Aging and Death Festival, or RAADFest.

The biotech firm, Florida-based U.S. Stem Cell Inc., disclosed earlier this month that the Securities and Exchange Commission subpoenaed its financial records and other documents in connection with what the company says is a formal “fact-finding inquiry.” U.S. Stem Cell declined to provide any further details of the probe, and the SEC declined to comment.

Regulatory scrutiny of this entire field is long overdue. The FDA has been signaling for nearly a year that it takes its responsibility seriously. FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb and agency official Peter Marks wrote last month in an article for the New England Journal of Medicine that giving patients these treatments risks “serious adverse events” and warned of the drawbacks of “propagating products with dubious clinical efficacy and possible risks.”

–00–

It could be that Trump’s choice for FDA Commissioner is proving to be a good one who intends to put action to ideas rather than mouth off and make promises. It could be these people were already under review by DoJ and that FDA was acting quickly and efficiently to shut down the companies (for a government agency).  It might be only coincidental that the Sun article ran the first week in December, but hey good investigative reporting can help speed actions along once in a while.

I wonder if the FDA has a way to analyze prior companies turned down to see if their products did move overseas and if they did finally prove through their efforts that their products were worth bringing back into the US? Also, one that questions why foreign countries have actually banned things that the FDA approved and move to get them off our markets as well if they find the reasoning sound.

It’s a shame that the same level of investigative journalism isn’t still available on the MSM these days instead of just Anti-Trump canned rhetoric.

Posted on Bob’s Opinion from EM ROWELL … A email communication it is a great article and on the subject that I am starting to think President Trump has not properly addressed on the senior citizens …

FYI from Edna…..they haven’t “Borrowed” our Social Security….they have STOLEN somewhere between $2.85 and $5 TRILLON FROM US. They need to pay it back with compound interest!.

  Security
A woman dies at age 65 before collecting one benefit check.  She and her employer paid into the system for almost 50 years and she collected NOTHING!
Keep in mind all the working people that die every year who were paying into the system and got nothing!

And these governmental morons mismanaged the money and stole from the system, so that it’s now going broke.

BEAUTIFUL! and they have the audacity to call today’s seniors “vultures” in an attempt to cover their ineptitude.

DISGRACEFUL!

The real reason for renaming our Social Security payments is so the government can claim that


all those social security recipients are receiving entitlements thus putting them in the same case
 as welfare, food stamp recipients.


THIS IS WORTH THE FEW MINUTES IT TAKES TO READ AND DIGEST!
FY.I.  By changing the name of SS contributions it gives them a means to refute this program in the future.
It’s free money for the government to spend under this guise.
The Social Security check is now (or soon will be) referred to as a *Federal Benefit Payment*?
I’ll be part of the one percent to forward this. I am forwarding it because it touches a nerve in me, and I hope it will in you.
 
Please keep passing it on until everyone in our country has read it.
The government is now referring to our Social Security checks as a “Federal Benefit Payment.”
This isn’t a benefit. It is our money paid out of our earned income!  Not only did we all contribute to Social Security but our employers did too. It totaled 15% of our income before taxes.
(This should be enough for you to forward this message, If not read on.)
If you averaged $30K per year over your working life, that’s close to $180,000 invested in Social Security.
If you calculate the future value of your monthly investment in social security ($375/month, including both you and your employers contributions) at a meager 1% interest rate compounded monthly, after 40 years of working you’d have more than $1.3+ million dollars saved!
This is your personal investment. Upon retirement, if you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $39,318 per year, or $3,277 per month.
That’s almost three times more than today’s average Social Security benefit of $1,230 per month, according to the Social Security Administration. (Google it – it’s a fact). And your retirement fund would last more than 33 years (until you’re 98 if you retire at age 65)! I can only imagine how much better most average-income people could live in retirement if our government had just invested our money in low-risk interest-earning accounts.
Instead, the folks in Washington pulled off a bigger *Ponzi scheme* than Bernie Madoff ever did. (Lyndon Johnson)
They took our money and used it elsewhere. They forgot (oh yes, they knew) that it was OUR money they were taking.  They didn’t have a referendum to ask us if we wanted to lend the money to them.  And they didn’t pay interest on the debt they assumed. And recently they’ve told us that the money won’t support us for very much longer.(Isn’t it funny that they NEVER say this about welfare payments?)
But is it our fault they misused our investments?  And now, to add insult to injury, they’re calling it a *benefit*, as if we never worked to earn every penny of it.
Just because they borrowed the money, doesn’t mean that our investments were a charity!
Let’s take a stand. We have earned our right to Social Security and Medicare. Demand that our legislators bring some sense into our government.
Find a way to keep Social Security and Medicare going for the sake of that 92% of our population who need it.

Then call it what it is:
Our Earned Retirement Income.
99% of people won’t forward this.
Will you ?
