Praying that Donald Trump can save Americas freedoms!

AMERICA – LAND of POLITICAL SLAVES!

It used to be “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave”. Unfortunately the “Brave” have become the minority.

I have multiple reasons for writing this article as just in my lifetime we have destroyed far too many freedoms for American citizens. Being born in 1930 about the only thing most Americans had was freedom from our own government to live the “American Dream”. There was no EPA, Energy Department, Social Security Administration, Education Department, thousands of lobbyist in Washington and we did not have a “Royal Family” to squander the tax dollars we paid. Yes things were tough for most Americans but we had charities and the churches that helped the Americans in need.

We had regulated immigration that was designed to improve American needs instead of creating the world’s largest unemployment abyss so that we can make work for the scum of the world who have no loyalty to America. When I read about the Muslims taking total control of cities in Michigan it makes my blood boil. They were escorted in by the Progressive-Liberals of both the Demoncrats and Republicans just to gain votes. An invasion and occupation of segments of America without firing one shot. They have never and will never accept our laws or our heritage like the Europeans who immigrated in the last century.

That’s bad enough but the real invasion has been from the South. Living in Texas all of my 85 years this invasion was rather regulated for most of my life. We have Mexican families that have been born as Americans for many generations.

Before I retired I was invited to both make a speech at a Mexican University and present a technical seminar in Mexico City. I has several Mexican companies I was providing consulting services for in Mexico at the time. The organization that was sponsoring the seminar sent me a copy of the promotional material describing the event which was obviously printed in Spanish. I took Spanish in the 4th grade when education was a State responsibility but it was no help to approve the draft. I had a Hispanic friend my age that I asked to translate the brochure draft and he had less knowledge about Spanish than I did.

I worked in 32 countries, including several Muslim nations and enjoyed over 25 years vacationing in Mexico with a time share in Puerto Vallarta. Mexico is a beautiful country and has wonderful people but the change in violence due to drugs is ruining what used to be a peaceful nation. I have no problem with immigration if it is regulated, but the recent invasion, supported by Demoncrats just for votes is total madness.

What prompted me to write this article was watching Harry “The Zombie” Reed explain why the Demoncrats were supporting the “Sanctuary Cities” decisions of no telling how many actual laws are being violated by them and create the abuse of natural born Americans. I worked more than desired in California, “The land of fruits and nuts”, but recent decisions to allow illegal aliens to vote is nuts.

Folks, America is in crisis mode and sadly most Americans are totally unaware of what is happening. They get their welfare checks, unemployment checks, food stamps, free stuff and Medicaid without having to work. If enough Americans don’t wake up next year and stop this folly they better prepare for Sharia Laws and learn to speak Spanish. One thing is certain, they will not have all of this “Free Stuff” when America becomes a Socialist Democracy.

Lawless society will be the downfall of America if we stay leaderless much longer. Like everything there is a bottom line in my message. We have one American running for President that has the gonads to stop all of this fright in Donald Trump. Unless Emperor Obama does not declare Marshall Law and skip the election next year America has a chance to be great again. It is time for all freedom loving Americans to band together and stop the destruction of our Republic. I hope we use the ballot box rather than the ammunition box to bring America back to the greatest country ever created. Work is better than bleeding.

Federal Benefit Check?

I received this message from a good friend today and by chance my “Federal Benefit Check” from the Social Security Administration, arrived three days late. The past several months they have been late and they were always on time for some 21 years. In addition they told me I was not in compliance with a Federal Law by not registering for an electronic payment instead of a check since 2013. I suppose I will soon be arrested along half of the older retirees in the United States who don’t like electronic payments, debit cards and don’t need a bank account.

They warn us it is easy to lose a check but Debit cards can be lost by old folks much easier than the Postal Service can lose our checks. I have received this same message each month for two years. Soon I expect  government regulations that will tell us when and how we have to brush our teeth and wipe our rears.

As I am approaching 85, life in a Federal Prison would be a lot cheaper by not having to buy food, clothes, pay to insure my health and eventually the costs to bury me. I suppose I could divorce my wife of 55 years and give her all of our assets now. Please absorb the following scenario of our government helping you that you may not be unaware of? This older lady is obviously quite upset.

 The Story

Before reading the information below, I’d like to share an incident that happened to me a couple of months ago at a Walgreens. My husband had a new prescription that cost over $200. I have the Balance Rewards card from Walgreens, which honors prescriptions as well as other purchases. So, I asked for the Balance Rewards for this prescription to be added to my Rewards account.

The pharmacist said she couldn’t because I was paying for it with an entitlement. I explained that we have never been on any kind of entitlement program. She stated that Social Security and Medicare are entitlements. I tried not to come unglued, but told her nicely that my husband and I had earned our Social Security and Medicare with money paid into these accounts each and every payday. She said she understood, but it was now called an entitlement, and I couldn’t get the Rewards points. I could care less about the Rewards points, but was livid that the government now called Social Security (that we paid into all our lives) an entitlement!

To be fair to Walgreens, the pharmacist said that there was a federal law that no one on entitlement can benefit from those payments in any way…getting reward points. Wow! The government has their hands in everything! Anyway, now please read the item below…

If you get any Social Security at all in any manner, you might want to read. Did you know this?

Unfortunately most did not, and I am one of those whose Social Security funds are direct deposited to my bank, thus, I never see the checks. Once again, our beloved congressmen are playing fast and loose with vernacular. What motive did they have for changing the name of our Social Security? I’m sure they have a plan, and it won’t be to our betterment.

Here we go. JUST REALIZED THAT WITH REQUIRED AUTO DEPOSIT, I NEVER GET TO SEE THE CHECK. ALERT EVERYONE YOU KNOW. THIS AFFECTS ALL OF US.* *Subject:* SOCIAL SECURITY becomes FEDERAL BENEFIT CHECK. Have you noticed, the Social Security check is now referred to as a “Federal Benefit Payment”?

I am writing 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 earned income! Not only did we all contribute to Social Security but our employers did too. It totaled 15% of our income before taxes. 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 your 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. They took our money and used it elsewhere. They forgot (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. 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 share this. Will you? *You can bet I WILL!* I ALSO THINK WE SHOULD DEMAND THAT THEIR SALARIES AND RETIREMENTS BE CALLED FEDERAL BENEFIT PAYMENTS. THIS WOULD BE MORE HONEST THAN WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO OUR SOCIAL SECURITY.

I have no idea who wrote this but I hope you will share this with everyone possible. I wonder if we will see Obama, Holder, Hillary and the rest of the people like the IRS lady who ignored the laws when we all get to the federal pokey? C Brewer
