Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself studied
the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the
nature of God, his laws and the nature of man. That happens to be way more than
what most understand today. Jefferson really knew his stuff. A voice from the
past to lead us in the future:

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House
for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this
statement: “This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to
gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas
Jefferson dined alone.”

“When we
get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as
corrupt as Europe .”     (Big cities of USA
ultra liberal and control)

— Thomas Jefferson

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work
and give to those who would not.”
(Welfare in every form 50M in USA getting government
aid)
— Thomas Jefferson

“It is incumbent on every generation to pay
its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the
wars of the world.”

— Thomas Jefferson

“I predict future happiness for Americans
if they can prevent the government from wasting
the labours of the people under the pretence of taking care of
them.”      Taxes and more
taxes
— Thomas Jefferson

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”
(That is for sure now and Obamacare will increase it.)

— Thomas Jefferson

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use
of arms.”

— Thomas Jefferson

“The strongest reason for the people to
retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a
last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”

— Thomas Jefferson

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from
time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

— Thomas Jefferson

“To compel
a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves
and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”

— Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

“I believe that banking institutions are
more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.

If the American people ever allow private banks
to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation,
the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the
people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent
their fathers conquered.”

Social Security, who’s REALLY trying to take it/reduce it

By , March 8, 2013 1:28 pm

Franklin Delano Roosevelt (terms of office March 4, 1933, to April 12, 1945), a Democrat who 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,
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.

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’—so you may
be interested in the following:

Dwight David Eisenhower   34th. President, Republican,
Term Of Office: January 20, 1953 to January 20, 1961
If I recall correctly, 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.

If I recall correctly, it was a democratically controlled Congress.

From what I understand,Congress’ 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 or set aside for.

————-WORSE STILL———–

Question: Which Political Party took Social Security from the Independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put
it into the General Fund so that Congress could spend it?

Answer: It was Lyndon B. Johnson (Democrat, Term of Office: November 22, 1963 to January
20, 1969) and the democratically controlled House and Senate.

——————————-READ ON ————————————-

Question: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax Deduction for Social Security  (FICA) withholding?
Answer: The Democratic Party.

——————————-MOREOVER————————————-

William Jefferson Clinton  (Bill Clinton)
42nd. President   Democrat Term of Office: January 20, 1993 to January 20, 2001

Albert Arnold Gore, Jr.
(Al Gore)  45th. Vice President

Democrat Term of Office: January 20, 1993 to January 20, 2001
Question: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?
Answer: The Democratic Party, with Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. (Al Gore) [Vice President Term of
Office: January 10, 1993 to January 20, 2001] casting the ‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as
President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US …

——————THE STRAW THAT BROKE THE CAMEL’S BACK!!———————–

James Earl Carter, Jar  (Jimmy Carter)   39th President, Democrat
Term of Office: January 20, 1977 to January 20, 1981

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 read 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 share this to?
Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.
AND CONGRESS GIVES THEMSELVES 100% RETIREMENT FOR ONLY SERVING
ONE TERM!!!

3rd President, Democrat   Term of Office: January 20, 1777 to January 20, 1781

Getting Old

By , February 27, 2013 6:45 pm

As I’ve aged, I’ve become kinder to, and less critical of, myself. I’ve become my own friend.

I have seen too many dear friends leave this world, too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging.

Whose business is it, if I choose to read, or play on the computer, until 4 AM, or sleep until noon? I will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes of the
50s, 60s & 70s, and if I, at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love, I will.

I will walk the beach, in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves, with abandon, if I choose to, despite the pitying
glances from the jet set. They, too, will get old.

I know I am sometimes forgetful. But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And, eventually, I remember the important things.

Sure, over the years, my heart has been broken. How can your heart not break, when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody’s
beloved pet gets hit by a car? But broken hearts are what give us strength, and understanding, and compassion. A heart never broken, is pristine, and sterile,
and will never know the joy of being imperfect.

I am so  blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face.
So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.

As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what other people think. I don’t question myself anymore.  I’ve even earned the right to be wrong.

So, to answer your question, I like being old. It has set me free. I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still
here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be. And I shall eat dessert every single day (if I feel like it).

Upside-down America

By , June 29, 2012 8:11 pm

You know you live in an Upside-down Land if… You can get arrested for expired tags on your car, but not for being in the country illegally.

You know you live in an Upside-down Land if… Children are forcibly removed from parents who appropriately discipline them while children of “underprivileged” drug addicts are left to rot in filth-infested
cesspools.

You know you live in an Upside-down Land if… Working class Americans pay for their own health care (and the health care of everyone else) while unmarried women are free to have child after child on the “State’s” dime while never being held responsible for their own choices.

You know you live in an Upside-down Land if… Parents believe the State is responsible for providing for their children.

You know you live in an Upside-down Land if… You can write a post like this just by reading the news headlines in the media.

You know you live in an Upside-down Land if… You pay your mortgage faithfully, while your neighbor defaults on his mortgage, buys iphones, big screen TVs and new cars, and the government forgives his debt and reduces his mortgage with your tax dollars.

You know you live in an Upside-down Land if… Your government can add anything it wants to your kid’s water (fluoride, chlorine, etc.), but you are not supposed to give them whole milk.

You know you live in an Upside-down Land if… Being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you “safe”.

You know you live in an Upside-down Land if… You have to have your parents’ signature to go on a school field trip, but not to get an abortion.

You know you live in an Upside-down Land if… An 80 year old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA, but a Muslim woman in a burqa is only subject to having her neck and head searched.

Unfortunately, this list could go on and on. Our world has been
turned upside-down.

This is awesome! How Great is our God!!!

By , June 11, 2012 2:56 pm

 

This is awesome!  How  Great is our God!!!

Our Creator and Redeemer . . . and do we THINK about it ??? God’s accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs.. . . . .

For example:

-the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days;

-those of the canary in 14 days;

-those of the barnyard hen in 21 days;

-The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days;

-those of the mallard in 35 days;

-The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.

(Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!)

God’s wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant.
The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same
direction. No other quadruped is so made.
God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to
live on two legs. For this reason He gave
it four fulcrums so that it can rise rom the ground easily.

The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first.
A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first.
How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation!

God’s wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of
sections and segments, as well as in the number
of grains.

-Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.

-Each orange has an even number of segments.

-Each ear of corn has an even number of rows.

-Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.

-Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and
each row decreases by one, so that one row has an
even number and the next row an odd number.

-The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute
in all kinds of weather.

All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks,
and the Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold
all even numbers.

God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day. Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory  containing the right
kind of soil, moisture and temperature,  he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed!

The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way  for His glory, if you will only entrust Him with your life. If you try to regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a
failure. Only the One Who made the brain and the heart can successfully  guide them to a profitable end.

The  Bible

When  you carry “the Bible”, Satan has a headache,
when you open it, he collapses,

when he sees you  reading it, he loses
his strength, AND when you stand on the Word of God,

Satan can’t hurt  you!  And did you also know…

The New Bad American?; not on my watch

By , April 30, 2012 8:25 pm

 

I Am the Democratic, Republican Liberal-Progressive’s Worst Nightmare.

I am a White, Conservative, Tax-Paying, American Veteran, Gun Owning Biker.
Thats me!

I am a Master Mason. I work hard and long hours with my hands to earn a living.

I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I don’t push it on others.

I ride Harley Davidson Motorcycles, and drive American-made cars, and I believe in American products and buy them whenever I can.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and not some liberal governmental functionary, Democratic or Republican, that wants to share it with others who don’t work!

I’m in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!

I think owning a gun doesn’t make you a killer; it makes you a smart American.

I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to Anything. Get over it!

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac or any other item, you should do it in English.

I believe there should be no other language option.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.

My heroes are Malcolm Forbes, Bill Gates, John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Roy Rogers,and Willie G. Davidson, who makes the awesome Harley Davidson Motorcycles.

I don’t hate the rich. I don’t pity the poor.

I know wrestling is fake and I don’t waste my time watching or arguing about it.

I’ve never owned a slave, nor was I a slave. I haven’t burned any witches or been persecuted By the Turks, and neither have you!

I believe if you don’t like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and  Change your own country!

This is AMERICA …We like it the way it is and more so the way it was …so stop trying to Change it to look like Russia or China , or some other socialist country!

If you were born here and don’t like it… You are free to move to any Socialist country that will  Have you. I believe it is time to really clean house, starting with the Washington
D.C., the seat  Of our biggest problems.

I want to know which church is it, exactly, where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches, Where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution?

Can I get an AMEN on that one?

I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you’re breaking the law, regardless of  What  color you are, but not just because you happen to ride a bike.

And, no, I don’t mind having my face shown on my driver’s license. I think it’s good…. And I’m proud that ‘God’ is written on my money..

I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don’t want you deciding who Should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.

I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me  Into making ‘donations’ to their cause…. Get a job and do your part to support
yourself and  Your family!

I believe that it doesn’t take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents….

I believe ‘illegal’ is illegal no matter what the lawyers think!

I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA !

If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I’m a BAD American.

We want our country back!

My Country….. I hope this offends all illegal aliens.

My great, great, great, great grandfather watched and bled as his friends died in the Revolution  & the War of 1812.

My great, great, great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Mexican American War.

My great, great grandfather watched as his friends & brothers died in the Civil War.

My great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Spanish-American War.

My grandfather watched as his friends died in WW I.

My father watched as his friends died in WW II.

I watched as my friends died in Vietnam , Panama & Desert Storm.

My son watched & bled as his friends died in Afghanistan and Iraq .

None of them died for the Mexican Flag.

Everyone died for the American flag.

Texas high school students raised a Mexican flag on a school flag pole,  other students took it down. Guess who was expelled…the students who took it down.

California high school students were sent home on Cinco de Mayo, because they wore T-shirts with the American flag printed on them.

Enough is enough

This message needs to be viewed by every American; and every American needs to stand up for America .

We’ve bent over to appease the America-haters long enough. I’m taking a stand.

I’m standing up because the hundreds of thousands who died fighting in wars for this country,  and for the American flag.

And shame on anyone who tries to make this a racist message.

AMERICANS, stop giving away Your RIGHTS !

Let me make this clear! THIS IS MY COUNTRY !

This statement DOES NOT mean I’m against immigration !

YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, IN MY COUNTRY, welcome to come legally:

1. Get a sponsor !

2. Learn the LANGUAGE, as immigrants have in the past !

3. Live by OUR rules !

4. Get a job !

5. Pay YOUR Taxes !

6. No Social Security until you have earned it and Paid for it !

7. NOW find a place to lay your head !

We’ve gone so far the other way . . . bent over backwards not to offend anyone.

Only AMERICANS seems to care when American Citizens are being offended !

WAKE
UP America ! ! !

God has the answer

By , March 9, 2012 6:44 pm

Aking who did not believe in the goodness of God, had a slave who, in

all circumstances, said: My king, do not be discouraged, because

everything God does is perfect, no mistakes!

One day they went hunting and along the way a wild animal attacked the

king. His slave managed to kill the animal, but could not prevent his

majesty losing a finger. Furious and without showing his gratitude for

being saved, the nobleman said “Is God good? If He was good, I would not

have been attacked and lost my finger.”

The slave replied:

“My king, despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is

good, and he knows the “why” of all these things. What God does is

perfect. He is never wrong!” Outraged by the response, the king ordered

the arrest of his slave.

Later, he left for another hunting trip and was captured by savages who

made human sacrifices. On the altar, ready to sacrifice the nobleman,

the savages found that the victim had not one of his fingers, so he was

released. According to them, he was not so complete to be offered to the

gods. Upon his return to the palace, he authorized the release of his

slave whom he received very affectionately.

“My dear, God was really good to me! I was almost killed by the wild

men, but for the lack of a single finger, I was let go! But I have a

question: if God is so good, why did he allow me to put you in jail?”

“My King if I had gone with you on this hunt I would have been

sacrificed for you because I have no missing finger. Therefore, remember

everything God does is perfect. He is never wrong.”

Often we complain about life, and negative things that happen to us,

forgetting that nothing is random and that everything has a purpose.

Every morning, offer your day to God, don’t be in a rush.

Ask God to inspire your thoughts, guide your actions, and ease your

feelings. And do not be afraid. God is never wrong!

You know why this message is for you? I do not know, but God knows,

because he never makes mistakes…….

The path of God and his word is perfect, without impurities. He is the

way of all those who trust in Him, as he says in 2 Samuel 22: 31.

What you do with this message is up to you. May God put in your heart

the desire to send it to someone. God knows why He choose you to receive

this message. Please bless someone with it. God is never wrong!

Get a Job

By , February 26, 2012 8:44 pm

Written by a 21 year old female:

 

“The
problems we face today are there because the people
who work
for a living are
outnumbered
by those who vote for a living”

Written by a 21 yr. old female who gets it. It’s her future she’s worried
about, and this is how she feels about the social welfare, big government state
that she’s being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in
her opinion.

This was published in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco , TX

Put me in charge . . .

Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for
Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks
of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and
frozen pizza, then get a job.

Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I’d do is to get women Norplant
birth control implants or tubal ligations. Then, we’ll test recipients for
drugs, alcohol, and nicotine and document all tattoos and piercings. If
you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, smoke, or get tats and piercings,
then get a job.

Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks?

You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair.

Your “home” will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions
will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, thenget a job, and your own place.

In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week, or you
will report to a “government” job. It may be cleaning the roadways of
trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will
sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and
speakers and put that money toward the “common good..”

Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the
above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules..

Before you say that this would be “demeaning” and ruin their
“self-esteem,” consider that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and
lowered self-esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least
attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

AND While you are on Gov’t subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is
correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of
interest
. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you
are receiving a Gov’t welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.

I’m 73 andI’m Tired

By , September 20, 2011 6:38 pm

Subject: Fw: 73 and I’m Tired – Required read



73 and I’m Tired


This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in the UK , in the U.S.A, Canada , Australia and New Zealand ….


By Robert A. Hall

I’m 73 Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I’ve worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven’t called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired.

I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.

I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honor”; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers;” of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery;” of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to.

I’m tired of being told that, out of “tolerance for other cultures,” we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America and Canada , while no American nor Canadian group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.

I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.


I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off?

I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

I’m real tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 73.. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughters and grandson.

Robert A. Hall is a Marine Vietnam veteran who served five terms in the Massachusetts State Senate.


There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!
This is your chance to make a difference.

“I’m 73 and I’m tired!!

“Never complain about growing old, far too many people have been denied that privilege.”
