Subject:Enough is enough
Time:02:32 pm
Because of the profession I have chosen I am exposed to FAR TOO MANY Liberal, and the crazy way far left wing Liberals at that. I try not to make waves by arguing my points with them when I know there is no way I could even get them to listen, much less to sway them. So, I will just have to put my rant out there somehow and this is it. The latest topic of discussion has been Social Security, so I have decided, like I said, to post my rant instead of going postal on my friends...

SOCIAL SECURITY:
Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, 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, and therefore, 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.

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 casting the "tie-breaking"
deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of
the U.S.

Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to
immigrants?

A: That's right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party. Immigrants
moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive SSI Social
Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even
though they never paid a dime into it!

Then, after thieving and violating of 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! Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions during
this2004 election year!

Subject:Busy Busy Busy
Time:07:43 pm
I can not believe how busy I have been and how busy I am about to become! I know I haven't written in this in a while but I don't have long, even now, to write. March Madness S.C.W. is over and planning for next year has begun! It went great!!! I hope and think everyone had a good time, I know I did. I had a wonderful, but short, visit with the crew that came up here for the workshop. Now we are in to the Complete Works Shows, Knife Class starts next week. 4 classes 30 hours, I will test in May with my NKU kids. My summer SPT will beging May 16th. I will be going for broadsword and single sword. I am hoping by the end of June to have tested out and passed in all 3. That would leave only Singlesword and Sword & Sheild before I have all 8 SAFD sancioned weapons. I am also, now, trying desperatly to get all of my materials together for the Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. Award. This is a full scholarship to Vegas. I am praying I get it. Otherwise I will have to put myself into debt to get there this summer. Willie and I are pretty sure we can raise the money for one of us but both is nearly impossible (I accept donations!!) About the only thing I have covered now is the flight. That is not to mention that I will have to take 3 weeks off of work. I am still waiting to find out if that is going to happen. It my boss tells me no, I will have to start looking for a new job now so that I have one to come back to after Vegas. This is just a non-negotaible thing. Vegas is basicly a requirement to becoming a CT. I got my letter of rec. from John Cashman today. It was amazing! I couldn't have asked for a better letter. Crap, it is about 8 I have to run. Sorry! But write me, leave me some hellos, how do you do's, or even questions for me to answer. I check this thing everyday I just don't have time to come up with creative things to say. Let me know how your life is going...SWITZ!!!Luz!!!Marie!!!ERIN!!!Hello. I have to call you some time. who knows, but we have to get together. I actually miss you, especially at work now. OH GOD! Later gators...Queenie

Current Music:the rain

Subject:Too Long
Time:10:07 am
Current Mood:awake
It has been sooooo long since I have actually had the time to sit down and write in this thing. Everything is so hectic between Krapo's (work), C.W.O.W.S. (A) Rehearsals (we have had exactly 4 now and the show is next wednesday, workshop stuff, classes, and all the driving in between I haven't even had much time to sleep. But, today I am staying home from work. The rain has brought down a lot of pollen and my allergies are going nuts. I am just trying to breath.
I need to do some basic cleaning before all of our house guests arive next week. And now that I feel like poo poo I dont' think it will ever get done. I know there will be no time for scrubbing the bath tub or mopping the floor at all next week. If I can't get everything done today that I want I will wind up missing class tomorrow, which I don't want to do. (misswitzerland-you would be totally amazed that the house does only need some basic cleaning and not a major overhaul like normal) We have been trying! Mostly I need to pick up clothes from the floor, vaccum and mop. Maybe, when I am not home, Willie can do some dusting. But that is about it. WOW! I know. I am really excited about the workshop next weekend! But there is still so much to do. I am amazed by the number of people signed up for the workshop. For a first year we have a ton of people. About 28 right now and given that Philly caps at 35, I am stoked! I just got the dagger in the mail yesterday from Neil Massey that we will be auctioning off. It is georgeous. I like the lines on this dagger better than any I have seen from Neil yet! Very cool. Hey, if any of you have any ideas on other raffle prizes, let me know. We are also giving away one or two (we are not sure yet) free workshop spots for next years workshop. The t-shirt design is finally in but I don't know if we will have them back in time for the workshop. If they aren't ready that would really suck. Hopefully they will be though. Ok, now I am totally rambling. I will let my captive audience go. I miss you all.

HASH(0x8b1683c)
You are a faerie of the flame. You tend to lose
your temper at the littlest thing, hot-headed.
You're a loyal friend to those who can
understand your raging moods. You're social
though claim not to be. You are no one else but
yourself and sometimes you try to hard to be
just that. You're a passionate friend, and
would do almost anything for those you care
for.


What's your inner Faerie?
