Emails from Somebody Else’s Grandma : Facts About Mitt Romney We Will Not Hear About From The News Media

Facts About Mitt Romney We Will Not Hear About From The News Media
>
>
> · After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar, but never worked as an attorney.
>
> · As a venture-capitalist, Romney’s first major business deal involved investing in a start-up office supply company with one store in Massachusetts that sold office supplies. That company, called Staples, now has over 2,000 stores and employs over 90,000 people.
>
> · Romney or his company Bain Capital (using what became known as the “Bain Way”) would go on to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again, with companies like Domino’s, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot Supply, and many others.
>
> Got your calculators handy? Let’s recap.
>
> · Volunteer campaign worker for his dad’s gubernatorial campaign 1 year.
>
> · Unpaid intern in Governor’s office 8 years.
>
> · Mormon missionary in Paris 2 years.
>
> · Unpaid bishop and state president for his church 10 years.
>
> · No salary as president of the Olympics 3 years.
>
> · No salary as MA governor 4 years.
>
> · That’s a grand total of 28 years of unpaid service to his country, his community and his church. Why? Because that’s the kind of man Mitt Romney is.
>
> · And in 2011 Mitt Romney gave over $4 million to charity, almost 19% of his income….Obama gave 1%
>
> · Joe Biden gave a pathetic $300 or .0013%
>
> · Romney may not be the best representative the Republicans could have selected. But at least I know what religion he is, and that he won’t desecrate the flag, bow down to foreign powers, or squander my money on vacations. I know he has the ability to turn this financial debacle that the “Spending President” has gotten us into. We didn’t know that when Obama said he’d give us change, he meant nickels and dimes, and he would get the big bucks. We won’t like all the things necessary to recover from this debt, but someone with Romney’s background can do it.
>
> · But, on the minus side, He never was a “Community Organizer”, never took drugs or smoked pot. Never got drunk. Did not associate with communists or terrorists. Nor did he attend a church whose pastor called for God to damn the US .
>
> Do Us all a favor. Please send this to others who may be ill informed.

Emails From My Grandma : FW: Social Security now called Benefit

SOCIAL SECURITY NOW CALLED ‘FEDERAL BENEFIT PAYMENT’/ENTITLEMENT!

Have you noticed, your Social Security check is now 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 – its 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 your and your employer’s 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” 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.
Here’s a novel idea: Reduce the military budget to support our own population.
Get out of the countries who don’t want us there.
Bring our soldiers home and invest some of the $700B+ in giving them new careers building roads and parks, teaching our children, creating new technologies, discovering cures for illness.
Then take the rest and begin to pay back Social Security, and call it what it is:
Our Earned Retirement Income.

Emails from Grandma : Notes

Emails from my Grandma was a segment I started in response to Montana’s U.S. District Chief Judge Richard Cebull’s racist email.  At that time, on Twitter, I simply stated that, ” I receive an Email like that, daily, from my Grandma.” People didn’t believe me. So I posted one, and this all began. These emails are 100% real and from MY grandma, not random Grandma’s. My Grandma is a nice, god fearing, Catholic woman who lives in Nebraska. She is my love, and I am eternally grateful for her. Each email I post, I received THAT exact day. She is a tiny example of the madness and misinformation going on in this country. I post these emails not to make fun of my grandma, but to make fun of the misinformation. It’s to highlight that these emails are started by normal and rational people, who over time, have been led to believe some crazy things. So while we may be laughing at her, it’s at no fault of her own. I love you Grandma!

Emails From My Grandma : FW: Wal-Mart vs. The Morons (NOT A JOKE)

The real deal.

 

This is spot-on.

PLEASE, READ THIS TO THE END. IT IS VERY INTERESTING!!!

Wal-Mart vs. The Morons

1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart Every hour of every day.

2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!

3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.

4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.

5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world’s largest private employer, and most speak English.

6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.

7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years.

8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.

9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.

11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth’s population is approximately 6.5 Billion.)

12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.

You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run
Wal-Mart to fix the economy.

This should be read and understood by all Americans… Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature

It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:

a.. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years
to get it right and it is broke.

b.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it
right and it is broke.

c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right
and it is broke.

d.. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right;
$1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the
poor” and they only want more.

e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years
to get it right and they are broke.

f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right
and it is broke.

g.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence
on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion
a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right
and it is an abysmal failure.

You have FAILED in every “government service” you have shoved down our
throats while overspending our tax dollars.

AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED
WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??

Folks, keep this circulating. It is very well stated. Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our “duly elected’ (they never read anything) and
their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel.

AND

I know what’s wrong. We have lost our minds to “Political Correctness” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Someone please tell me what the ////////// is wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!!
We’re “broke” & can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,???????????
In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , and Turkey ..And now Pakistan ……..previous 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…;

AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without ‘needed’ meds, and mentally
ill without treatment -etc, etc.

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

Emails From My Grandma : FW: Obama stops soldier from speaking

OBAMA STOPS SOLDIER FROM SPEAKING
Something you’ll want to be aware of: Sent by Retired
Vice Admiral Bob Scarborough, of Arlington , VA.
“I wanted to give you all some disturbing information on
our wonderful president. I work with the Catch-A-Dream Foundation, which
provides hunting and fishing trips to children with life-threatening
illnesses. This past weekend we had our annual banquet/fundraiser event in
Starkville . As a part of our program, we had scheduled Sgt. 1st Class Greg
Stube to come; he’s a highly decorated U.S. Army Green Beret and
inspirational speaker who was severely injured while deployed overseas and
didn’t have much of a chance for survival. Greg is stationed at Ft. Bragg ,
NC and received permission from his commanding officer to come speak at our
function.

Everything was on go until Obama made a policy that NO U.S.
SERVICEMAN CAN SPEAK AT ANY FAITH-BASED PUBLIC EVENTS ANYMORE.

Needless to say, Greg had to cancel his speaking event
with us. Didn’t know if anyone else was aware of this new policy. You’re
just starting to see the Obamanation. This is just how the Nazis did it in
the 1930’s — slowly, one step at a time.
This should be forwarded to everyone regardless of party
affiliation! We have lost 50% of our freedom of speech in the last 2 years.
The news media is not allowed to print anything negative
about this evil Obama.
ARE YOU STILL GOING TO REELECT HIM???????????
