Barack's Got a Little Hick in 'Em

7/31/2008 10:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Barack Obama, Wild BillJohn McCain better watch his hide -- Barack Obama's got a real bona-fide gunslinger on his side.

Turns out that Obama and Wild Bill Hickok are cousins -- ok, so sixth cousins, six times removed -- but they're still related.

Obama fessed up during a speech in Springfield, Mo. The crowd thought he was joking. But the St. Pete Times found out that it's true ... just like Barack and Brad Pitt are ninth cousins.

Our Social Security Program

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 Democrat Controlled House and Senate.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax Deduction for Social
Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democrat Party.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

A: The Democrat Party, with Al Gore casting the 'tie-breaking' deciding
vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US

-------------------------------------------------------------------

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

AND MY FAVORITE:

A: That's right!

Jimmy Carter and the Democrat Party. Immigrants 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.

But it's worth a try. How many people can YOU send this to?

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.


AND CONGRESS GIVES THEMSELVES 100% RETIREMENT FOR ONLY SERVING ONE TERM!!!


A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough
to take everything you have. -Thomas Jefferson
