"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, 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: Which 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 castingthe 'tie-breaking' deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US  
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- - 
Q: Which Political Party decided to startgiving 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 receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve.  
But it's worth a try.

There is no better test of a persons integrity than their behavior when they are wrong.  
How beautiful it is to stay silent when someone expects you to be enraged. 
Sometimes people don't notice the things we do for them until we stop doing them. 
Once in a while in the middle of ordinary life, it gives us a 'Fairy Tale". 
And so life goes....... 
May God bestow upon us all His Blessings and His Love.

"The ChurchOrganist"  
The church organist, was in her eighties and had never been married. She was admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.  
One afternoon the pastor came to call on her and she showed him into her quaint sitting room. She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea. As he sat facing her old pump organ, the young minister noticed a cut-glass bowl sitting on top of it. 
The bowl was filled with water. In the water floated, of all things, a condom! When she returned with tea and scones, they began to chat. The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and he could no longer resist.  
"Miss Beatrice", he said. "I wonder if you would tell me about this?" pointing to the bowl.  
"Oh, yes" she replied, "isn't it wonderful? I was walking through the park a few months ago and I found this little package on the ground." 
"The directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wet and that it would prevent the spread of disease. Do you know I haven't had the flu all winter?"
Please say a prayer for President Trump and his family. 
Please say a prayer for the folks in Texas and  Florida who have been ravaged by the hurricanes. 
 long may she stand.
Have to say bye-bye now.  
My nap time you know.
