My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?

Archive for the month “November, 2015”


The government has decided to call Social Security a “government benefit” which it is not.  I  earned every dime I get which was deducted from my pay for over forty years. Now, the fools in our government have decided that what I get is a hand-out.  This bunch of crooks do not realize that it is my money they are returning to me.  It should have been earning interest all these years; but. these crooked SOB’s never put the money to work or at least they did not pay us any interest on the money they stole and used for other projects.  I, for one, am tired of these “money changers” and will do everything in my power to expose what crooks they really are.  This is not a really long blog. But, it being short in no way diminishes the importance of the subject.  We, as citizens, have to stand up and stop allowing these “crooks” to run “rough shod” over us. The following is an e-mail that I noticed and thought it should get as much exposure as possible.  Hope you let this “sink in” for a while and then pass it on to everyone you know.  This example is very enlightening and everyone should be made aware of the inner workings of the system.  If they, the government, had only invested the funds the way they should have, there would never have been a “short fall”.  Just the opposite, as we, the retired folks, would be “living large”.

Subject: Federal Benefit Payment
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 invest-ment 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. (Isn’t it funny that they NEVER say this about welfare payments?)
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.
They are not even giving us the annual raise this year.   Don’t tell us the cost of living is NOT going up and up  ! ! ! !
Then call it what it is: Our Earned Retirement Income.
99% of people won’t forward this. Will you?
You can bet I WILL!!!

Now that you have read and thought about the information, hopefully, you can use “COMMON SENSE” and see that it has been a scam.  People have gone to jail and served years in prison for much fewer crimes.  It is time for the American people to open their eyes and use the “COMMON SENSE” GOD gave you and put a stop to these corrupt politicians.  To do so only makes “COMMON SENSE”.



Hey America, have you any idea what the relationship between the WH and the media is or how deep it goes?  Everyone that I know says, “the media is in bed with the WH or the democratic party”.  Well, folks, they just do not realize how true a statement that is.  No one in their right mind could even think that “what is going on is going on”.  We have a situation happening now that is beyond belief.  The democrats and the WH are like a pack of wild animals “jumping everyone’s bones”.  The media has ingrained itself within the WH so strongly that most Americans will be surprised.  The entire system of “free press” has been “put to bed” so to speak.  The media has its tentacles in so many areas of the WH that it is amazing.  The entire system has been corrupted by nepotism.  Folks, it was never meant to be this way.  The following list will surprise you to say the least.  This nepotism, I feel, is what is causing a lot of our problems in our government today. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Now isn’t this a fine “how do you do”?  It is “who is sleeping with who,” literally; and “who is scratching who’s back”; and who is saying, “I’ll vote your way on this one if you will vote my way on that one, brother”. Folks, we the American people, are being sold out.  We are being taken for a train ride and we do not have any idea. Until now!!! If we allow this to continue then we deserve whatever it is they, the liberals, serve up.  We as conservative people have been so busy making a ” living ” that we have allowed these “liberal bastards” to move into the “people’s house” and it is going to be hard to evict them.  If we, as conservatives, do not stand up; then, the “LBs” will continue to force feed us “CHIT sandwiches” for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The least the “LBs” could do is to put some “mayo” on it; but, no, they think it is “great sport” to watch us choke it down dry.  Dryer than a “popcorn fart” I might add.  It only makes good “COMMON SENSE” to stand up and help stop the madness, But, if not, all I can say to you is, “ENJOY YOUR SANDWICH” and please brush your teeth or at least take a mint.


Hey folks, I was checking my e-mails this morning and noticed a few things that I felt needed to be mentioned in reference to “COMMON SENSE”.

The first was the firing of the officer who removed a student from the classroom for causing a disturbance. The officer, although maybe a little aggressive, was only doing his job and what the school requested.  This makes no “Common Sense” as this now tells the “inmates” that they are in charge of the asylum.  It sends the complete opposite message of what should be sent by the school.  Punish the officer not the student? My daddy would be “rolling over in his grave” as many “old timers” would be. Just think about this for a while and let it sink in, folks.

Then I saw where the press is badgering Donald Trump for being an “ego maniac” because he has someone prepare and present him with anything written about him in the press.  They, the press, saw this as very weird.  It just shows they, the press, have no “Common Sense” and know nothing about running a big business.  It makes perfectly good “COMMON SENSE” to be informed before starting your business day. I mentioned above that I noticed these items to be discussed as I was checking my e-mails which is during the time I spend preparing for “MY” business day. Neither, Donald nor myself, want to hit the streets unprepared to handle what comes our way. Let me tell you, “ALL SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE DO THE SAME THING”. It is just the right way to conduct business.  I was never aware that “THE DONALD” was following my lead, but so be it.

The third thing, but not in last place for any reason, is the fact that “fool-in-chief ” has decided to prohibit federal agencies to inquire about an applicants “criminal history”.  Folks, if you do not see the problem with this, then you are the problem.  What if they have been convicted of being a “spy”.  Wouldn’t that be something the government should know about a person they are considering for a position.  It is said that kids and for that matter adults also learn from the consequences of their mistakes; but, here the fool is allowing them to escape the consequences of their criminal past.  It just shows how out of touch this “muslim-in-chief” (he will have a big conversion the year after he gets out of office) really is.  Or, is it just another leg of the stool that he is trying to install people in our government that we would stop if we were informed ????? Really makes you wonder if this “fool” is this stupid or if it his way of fooling the American public and putting people in positions of power to help destroy this nation. Stop and ask yourself if this makes any “COMMON SENSE”.  If you decide it is OK, then I guess I am wasting my time with this blog as you are beyond help.

Remember, “COMMON SENSE” may be in short supply; but, it will never go out of style.  It is what “THE DONALD” and I use everyday in conducting business.  It has been successful for us both although a little more so for “THE DONALD”.  Always remember that I run my corporation the same as he does or as does GM; the only difference is that I use smaller numbers.
