In the News

Collusion Confusion?

This is all wrong.

Did President Trump admit to Russian collusion via tweet? "Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!". Colluding with Russia, a hostile enemy state is not "done all the time", and conspiring to rig an election is not legal.

Russians Revel

Putin' on the Ritz!

Things are really heating up with Russian collusion, after the President of the United States showed incredible weakness to Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. Press was allowed to ask questions after closed door (to Americans) meeting, where Trump showed the obedience of a lost puppy to the Russian leader, while bad mouthing the US and it's Security institutions. Russians and Avenatti are pretty much the only ones who never have a bad word. Wonder why?

FART ACT

Is it just a bunch of hot air?

The Trump draft of the "FART ACT" bill is written to abandon world trade rules and change the way the world does business with the United States. Trump and his administration have been meddling in the economy, but what is the end goal? Why would all of these horrible economic actions need to be taken of Trump really cares about the USA? Its possible he is taking orders from Putin, who would love to see the United States dissolved.

Steel Tariff Is Wrong

Anonymous's picture
Dear President Trump, Your decision to impose tariffs on steel & aluminum is wrong and will be counter productive. There are 140,00 steel workers versus 6,500,000 workers in steel using industries. The steel workers will be protected for a short while and the rest of us will all suffer due to higher prices here in the USA along with trade barriers being erected against our exports. It’s a lose-lose situation. Wake up and smell the coffee.
Approval: 
No

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.

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. 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.

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?
