    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

I hate to be the one to bring this up, but at the present time there is VERY little REAL difference between the DEMs and Republicans.... There's a tired dance and lip service, maybe.
The current economic situation is starting to feel strangely like the “guns and butter” of the late sixties / early seventies. Vietnam should have taught us something economically especially since many of the “old guard” were around during the period.

We have been at war with international terrorists for 6 years and still have real border security issues here at home. This problem and many others exist even though Republicans had majorities in Congress, Senate and the Presidency itself.

Our Iraqi friends social progress may be further down the “road map” to be just like us than we wish to admit. They seem to copying “Washington” defects just fine.

Our Social Security

Frank lin 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 contributed by the participants wou ld be 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 some are
now receiving a Social Security check every month --
and then finding that they 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 United Satates

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


A: That's right!
Jimmy Carter
and the Democratic Party.
Immigrants that 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. Maybe not, some Democrats
are awfully sure of what isn't so.
