Another from an email.....didn't check with "snopes"....

Quote:



This has been around before but it is a sober reminder.


Already in 1963 when I came to the US, I was informed repeatedly by friends and family "IF GUNS ARE OUTLAWED ONLY OUTLAWS WILL HAVE GUNS". That is still true today. Ingrid
Gun History


A LITTLE STORY

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late.

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.

With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'.

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED.

If you value your freedom, please spread this antigun-control message to all of your friends.

SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN.

SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.

SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. IT'S A NO BRAINER.

DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

Spread the word everywhere you can that you are a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment.

It's time to speak loud before they try to silence and disarm us. You're not imagining it, history shows that governments always manipulate tragedies to attempt to disarm the people~

Just posting emails for your perusal.......



Quote:
We all need to read this and pass it around until hopefully some honest politican will see it and want to do something about it.




KEEP PASSING THIS AROUND UNTIL EVERY ONE HAS READ IT .....SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH THIS CALCULATION IS THEY FORGOT TO FIGURE IN THE PEOPLE WHO DIED BEFORE THEY COLLECTED THEIR SOCIAL SECURITY!!!! WHERE DID THAT MONEY GO?????????????

This was sent to me, I am forwarding it because it does touch a nerve in me.

This is another example of what Rick Perry called "TREASON in high places" !!! Get angry and pass this on!

Remember, not only did you contribute to Social Security but your employer did too. It totaled 15% of your income before taxes. If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that's close to $220,500.

If you calculate the future value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer's contribution) at a simple 5% (less than what the govt. pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working you'd have $892,919.98.

If you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you're 95 if you retire at age 65) and that's with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit! If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you'd have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.

The folks in Washington have pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madhoff ever had..

Entitlement, Phooey! I paid cash for my social security insurance!!!! Just because they borrowed the money, doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!!

Congressional benefits GRRRrrrrrrrrr
Free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days, now that's welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement entitlements?

We're "broke" and can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless

In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile , and Turkey . And now Pakistan ....... home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!

Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government pours Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$'s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!

They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when it's time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place? Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.

Sad isn't it?

99% of people won't have the guts to forward this.

I'm one of the 1% -- I Just Did.

FROM A CURRENT EMAIL.......


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Subject: Chutzpah?

DEMOCRATS and Republicans ('different' ONLY in name)

We read all the jokes and forward the good ones
but I just wonder who will pass this one on.

How about you sending it on, and back to me,
if you have enough 'chutzpah' to do so.

I do

And I wonder just how many I will get back?
Someone please tell me what the HELL's wrong with

All the people that run this country!!!!!!

Both Democrats and Republicans
Say, "We're broke" And can't help our own

Seniors,

Veterans,

Orphans,

Homeless,

Etc.,?????

But, over the last several years THEY
have provided direct cash aid to....

Hamas - $351 M,
Libya $1.45 B,
Egypt - $397 M,
Mexico - $622 M,
Russia - $380 M,
Haiti - $1.4 B,
Jordan - $463 M,
Kenya - $816 M,
Sudan - $870 M,
Nigeria - $456 M,
Uganda - $451 M,
Congo - $359 M,
Ethiopia - $981 M,
Pakistan - $2 B,
South Africa - $566 M,
Senegal - $698 M,
Mozambique - $404 M,
Zambia - $331 M,
Kazakhstan - $304 M,
Iraq - $1.08 B,
Tanzania - $554 M,

...with literally Billions of Dollars and they still hate us!!!!
But on the other hand,
Our retired seniors,

Living on a 'fixed income,'
Receive NO aid!
Nor do they get any breaks, while our government
And religious organizations will pour
Hundreds of Billions Of $$$$$$'s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!
Someone needs to explain to them that Charity begins AT HOME!!!
And another atrocity....
We have Hundreds of adoptable
American Children who are shoved aside

To make room for The adoption of Foreign orphans.

AMERICA:
A country where we have
Countless Homeless without shelter,
Children going to bed hungry,
Elderly going without needed medication
and the Mentally ill without treatment -- etc.
YET..........
They will have a 'Benefit' Show
For the people of Haiti, on 12 TV Stations;
Ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents
clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.
Now Just Imagine if
Our own *GOVERNMENT*

Gave 'US' the same support they give to foreign countries.

Sad, isn't it?

99% of people won't have the 'chutzpah' to forward this.

WELL, I'm one of the 1% who Just Did.

Latest from an email.......

Quote:
Subject: URGENT


Rush Limbaugh: 12:15 today reported that New York City is using prescription records to revoke gun licenses. Lawyer representing a client on an anti- anxiety drug ( like Paxil, Zoloft, Prosac) said his client's gun license in New York is being pulled BECAUSE HE IS ON AN ANTI-ANXIETY DRUG. Lawyer said it was a violation of HIPPA. ( MEDICAL PRIVACY ACT). GLENN BECK HAS ALSO BEEN COVERING SIMILAR STORIES ON HIS RADIO SHOW.


Many of us have been predicting this was going to happen AFTER SANDY HOOK. Wait until they use this against all the veterans with PTSD ( all will be on RX drugs with that diagnosis). Once Obama Care is fully implemented the G'ment will have full access to all pharmacy records and will use those to cross check all the gun registrations. If you know anyone on any anti-depressants or anxiety drugs- even AMBIEN made the list of drugs which presribed violates gun ownership possibilities- tell them to get off of them.

When they go to the doctor and he HAS TO ASK " Do you have a gun in the house?" refuse to answer the question. This is a question now required to be asked by "HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS." ALSO- THIS RX DRUG USE EXTENDS TO ANY MEMBER OF THE HOUSEHOLD. EX: IF A KID IS ON RITALIN FOR ADD OR ADHD, A GUN CAN'T BE IN THE HOUSE. GET OFF THESE DRUGS AND GET THEM OFF OF YOUR PHARMACY'S COMPUTER AND OFF YOUR DOCTOR'S RECORDS.



Here it comes!!!!!!! THE SOCIALIST STATE OF AMERICA.

Guess I missed this on the 10:00 pm News.


Another from an email......



THE TANTRUM !


THE TANTRUM ! PICTURE WORTH TEN THOUSAND WORD !











My, My, what have we here?

The tantrum!!



Picture worth ten thousand words -"The little boy" did not get his way - this wasn't in the news, but it sure can be visualized.....

"Poor baby" did not get his way and had a "tantrum."
Bet you won't see this on network TV: Obama leaving a meeting with Congressional leaders after Cantor told the president
"Republicans would not vote for his proposed tax hikes."



"This idiot displays his true class and respect for the office." Just goes to show once again,
that there is no fix,or excuse, for stupidity and ingrained ignorance.Obama picked up his toys
and stormed out of the meeting, kicking the door open!There, my friends is the leader of our
country...... aren't you proud?

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny;
when the government fears the people, there is liberty." Thomas Jefferson

Haven't done a "Snopes" on this, but is an interesting accessment!




Subject: Military Pay Raises
-----




Military Pay


If you get this more than once, feel honored that you know more than one person who supports our military and appreciates what they do.

If you don't forward it, you don't deserve their sacrifice.

CINDY WILLIAMS was appointed by Obama as an Assistant Director for NATIONAL SECURITY in the Congressional Budget Office.....

This is an Airman's response to Cindy Williams' editorial piece in the Washington Times about MILITARY PAY, it should be printed in all newspapers across America.

Ms. Cindy William wrote a piece for the Washington Times denouncing the pay raise(s) coming service members' way this year citing that she stated a 13% wage increase was more than they deserve.





A young airman from Hill AFB responds to her article below. He ought to get a bonus for this.


"MS Williams:

I just had the pleasure of reading your column, "Our GI's earn enough”, and I am a bit confused. Frankly, I'm wondering where this vaunted overpayment is going, because as far as I can tell, it disappears every month between DFAS (The Defense Finance and Accounting Service) and my bank account. Checking my latest earnings statement I see that I make $1,117.80 before taxes per month. After taxes, I take home $874.20. When I run that through the calculator, I come up with an annual salary of $13,413.60 before taxes, and $10,490.40 after.

I work in the Air Force Network Control Center where I am part of the team responsible for a 5,000 host computer network. I am involved with infrastructure segments, specifically with Cisco Systems equipment. A quick check under jobs for "Network Technicians" in the Washington , D.C. Area reveals a position in my career field, requiring three yearsˆ™ experience in my job. Amazingly, this job does NOT pay $13,413.60 a year. No, this job is being offered at $70,000 to $80,000 per annum............. I'm sure you can draw the obvious conclusions.

Given the tenor of your column, I would assume that you NEVER had the pleasure of serving your country in her armed forces.

Before you take it upon yourself to once more castigate congressional and DOD leadership for attempting to get the families in the military's lowest pay brackets off of WIC and food stamps, I suggest that you join a group of deploying soldiers headed for AFGHANISTAN; I leave the choice of service branch up to you. Whatever choice you make though, opt for the SIX month rotation: it will guarantee you the longest possible time away from your family and friends, thus giving you full "deployment experience."

As your group prepares to board the plane, make sure to note the spouses and children who are saying goodbye to their loved ones. Also take care to note that several families are still unsure of how they'll be able to make ends meet while the primary breadwinner is gone. Obviously they've been squandering the "vast" piles of cash the government has been giving them.

Try to deploy over a major holiday; Christmas and Thanksgiving are perennial favorites. And when you're actually over there, sitting in a foxhole, shivering against the cold desert night, and the flight sergeant tells you that there aren't enough people on shift to relieve you for chow, remember this: trade whatever MRE's (meal-ready-to-eat) you manage to get for the tuna noodle casserole or cheese tortellini, and add Tabasco to everything. This gives some flavor.

Talk to your loved ones as often as you are permitted; it won't be nearly long enough or often enough, but take what you can get and be thankful for it. You may have picked up on the fact that I disagree with most of the points you present in your open piece.

But, tomorrow from KABUL, I will defend to the death your right to say it.

You see, I am an American fighting man, a guarantor of your First Amendment right and every other right you cherish...On a daily basis, my brother and sister soldiers worldwide ensure that you and people like you can thumb your collective noses at us, all on a salary that is nothing short of pitiful and under conditions that would make most people cringe. We hemorrhage our best and brightest into the private sector because we can't offer the stability and pay of civilian companies.

And you, Ms. Williams, have the gall to say that we make more than we deserve? What do you think someone should be paid to defend your life, and the life of your family?


A1C Michael Bragg,
Hill AFB AFNCC






IF YOU AGREE,



PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG TO



AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE AND SHOW YOUR SUPPORT OF THE AMERICAN FIGHTING MEN AND WOMAN





GOD BLESS AMERICA!/
