Social Security E-mail

One of our frequent visitors, Siddharthawolf, recently received an e-mail with the following questions and some answers:

Q1: Which political party took Social Security from the independent trust fund and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?

Q2: Which political party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

Q3: Which political party started taxing Social Security annuities?

Q4: Which political party increased the taxes on Social Security annuities?

Q5: Which political party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?

The e-mail then gives answers that blame the Democrats for all of these things, as you might guess.

Don't be fooled! The real answers can be found on The Social Security Administration's Website. If you have received this e-mail, write back to the person who sent it to you, and tell them that you have found the definitive answers to these questions.

And if a Nigerian businessman wants to transfer several million dollars to your bank account, you might want to view that with a certain degree of skepticism.

Here are some better questions.

Q1: Which political party created Social Security?

Q2: Which political party created Medicare?

Q3: Which political party added COLAs, SSI, and Social Security Disability benefits?

Give the Democrats their due!

Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in
Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely
long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly
enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

I don't know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your blog.
It appears as though some of the written text within your content
are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
This might be a problem with my internet browser because I've had this happen before. Kudos

Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked
hard on. Any suggestions?

Hello! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a
blog article or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of
the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!
