    History Lesson on Your Social Security Card

    Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this.
    It's easy to check out, if you don't believe it. Be sure and show it to your family
    and friends. They need a little history lesson on what's what and it doesn't matter
    whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts.


    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, 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: W
    hich 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!

    If enough people read this, maybe a seed of
    awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve.

    When I was managing a Burger King...the day minimum wage went up...All the prices on everything sold at Burger King went up. The cost of increase in wages was passed on to the customer!!

    Speaking of that - the "Seattle's Best" coffee is the worst tasting attempt at coffee I've ever 'attempted' (to) drink.

    70 left off the most important fact - jobs will be lost.

    I think the minimum wage should be set at $25 per hour. Lets just go ahead and get the whole thing over with. Then who is gonna complain?????

    Yep...when minimum wage goes up...we will see how many people complain about a $5.00 loaf of bread, $8.00 for a gallon of milk, and $5.50 for a gallon of gasoline!

    If that happens...a lot of older people, like myself, will keep working, which will mean less jobs for the younger generation. Also, MANY companies will only hire part-time employees since overtime would cost them a fortune!

    Re: If you want a thread to die

    All this minimum wage talk is completely stupid. All minimum wage jobs are entry-level jobs. They are for people (teenagers and such) that have no skills or job experience.

    No one who is a decent employee stays at minimum wage. They gain skills (responsibilities) and experience and even references then they start to get raises, then they can apply for other higher paying jobs. If you're on minimum wage for any length of time...there is a reason

    EXACTLY.............most of the time, they stay at minimum wage because they are not dependable!!! They show up for work when they want to do so.....by using a thousand excuses!

    Re: If you want a thread to die

    Everyone should be expected to work a minimum wage job at some point - and everyone should be expected to move on in life eventually. Sorta like preschool - it's good to go through but if someone's been in preschool for 10 years theres a problem.

    I waited tables for $2.13/hour (I still think that is the minimum wage for waiters). And lots of people don't know how to tip...

    I worked at the Tech film library (under the steps of Keeny Hall) for $1.00 per hour. I believe the cafeteria workers got a little more -- maybe $1.10 or $1.25.
