Ask the Politically Correct!

Question?

What is the difference between Embezzlement and Peculation?

Politically Correct Resolution:

"Embezzlement and *peculation mean almost the same thing,

but differ in that embezzlement is used mainly to describe the

criminal actions of a private citizen, such as an individual

stealing from their employer, while PECULATION usually applies

to the larger-scale misappropriation of public or collective funds

by people holding positions of trust within the organization

managing those funds, such as the government". (Wikipedia)

(Embezzlement is illegal and Peculation has been legalized

for governmental use only).

*Peculation and Speculation have two different meanings.

(You will not find the word "peculation" in any dictionary?)

PECULATION is that Marxist Progressive thing known as: "Take from

those who earned it and give it to those who didn't earn it (which

includes national and international conglomerates)"!

Actually, the word should be "piculation" rather than peculation,

in that the government "picks" a certain fund to "Borrow From"

and places these funds into another fund that will insure their

reelection! (example: Raiding earned Social Security of 500

billion dollars to pay for unearned Obama Care).

For those who say Social Security is merely an insurance program, why is

it when you make over a certain amount of income from other retirements

that you have to pay income taxes on the Social Security you receive?.

Yes it is adjusted; but, you still have to pay taxes on it. Therefore,

it is considered to be earned income and not insurance income.

Case in point. My wife and myself, who paid $1,500.00 in income taxes just

from receipt of Social Security Retirement income for the tax year 2010!

In addition to paying income taxes on Social Security, there was a forced deduction

of approximately $2,300.00 (my wife and myself) from these Social Security payments

per year for Medicare that I never use (that is until such time the government

abolishes the Veteran Administration's disability program and by that time there

probably won't be a Medicare Program either). An additional $4,800.00 is peculated

each year from my Social Security payment in that I have another retirement where

I didn't pay into social security (Windfall Profit Law). The reason for this deduction

in the retirement manual is the statement: "It's not fair that I should make more money

(even though I paid for it) than those who are in the same category". In other words,

those who retire with the same amount of years and who never worked and paid into

Social Security should not be penalized; however, we are going to penalize you

because you did. It's the same old, same old, "take from those who earned it and give

it to those who didn't earn it"!

My charity to the government, government take backs and taxes, is $20,000.00 per year!

(I guess someone has to pay for their yearly congressional pay raises)

IT'S ANOTHER GOVERNMENT "SHELL GAME" AND IF YOU DON'T WATCH VERY CLOSELY YOU

WILL NEVER KNOW WHERE THE PEA (MONEY) REALLY WENT!

I've resigned myself to the fact that eventually the government will take back

every cent that I've earned over the past 50 years. This is not about me, it's

about our grand children and the world that we are leaving them!

You're the Poet!

Fill in the below blanks with the following words or

use your own words.

Alive, asleep, by, deep, deep, deep, deep, end, explore,

fear, hear, keep, mend, shore, sleep, steep.

Silence of the Deep!

By L. Don Oliver

A gentle refreshing sea breeze,

Waves splashing upon the _____;

Seabirds soaring above me;

A beautiful new world to _______;

In the shadows of my soul,

The world above me ______;

Slipping slowly beneath the waves,

Into the silence of the ____;

Serenity of quite solitude

Rainbow creatures swimming __;

Lovely flowering coral reefs,

One is thankful to be _____;

Where there's rhyme and reason

No imperative schedule to ____;

Controlling my own destiny,

In the silence of the ____;

Sounds from a distant whale,

Echoes that I can barely ____;

Knowing that I am not alone,

Deflates any questioning ____;

Bubbles from a fissure below,

Up through the darkened _____;

At peace with the world,

In the silence of the ____;

When life has passed me by,

Broken dreams never to ____;

Things that I once enjoyed,

Ever winding down to ___;

If to die upon the morrow,

From cause for eternal _____;

I pray thee my final rest,

In the silence of the ____;

Previous poem.

"Our" Constitution!

By L. Don Oliver

It once was a beautiful document,

That was gracefully written there;

And through all it's many years.

It was giving great love and care;

Once it contain words of "Freedom",

Words that resonated toward the high,

Gathered within its wisdom, was hope,

But alas, those days have gone by;

Now we are told to tear it up,

Rendering it into a pile of dust;

Viewing it as a pathetic relic,

Worthy of only their disgust;

The meaning for which it stood,

Now archaic with no charm;

They are scripting a new one,

That will never cause them harm;

Swampyville's - Ponzi Scheme and Social Security!
by Swamptown
Nov 06, 2011 | 154 views | 0 0 comments | 13 13 recommendations | email to a friend | print | permalink
Is there any real difference between a Ponzi Scheme and

Social Security?

A Ponzi Scheme:

A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investment operation that pays

returns to its investors from their own money or the money paid

by subsequent investors, rather than from any actual profit earned

by the individual or organization running the operation. The Ponzi

scheme usually entices new investors by offering higher returns

than other investments, in the form of short-term returns that are

either abnormally high or unusually consistent. Perpetuation of the

high returns requires an ever-increasing flow of money from new

investors to keep the scheme going. (Wikipedia) Eventually this

scheme will fail due the lack of new investors!

Social Security:

Social Security is a government investment operation that pays

returns to its investors (retired employees) from their own money

they paid in and the money by subsequent investors (the currently

employed), rather than from any real profit earned by the retired

employees or from the organization (the government). Social Security

differs from a Ponzi Scheme by paying Long Term returns rather than Short

Term returns. There is a Social Security Trust Fund; however, this fund has

been pilfered by the government and it contains mainly I.O.U.'s, placed there

by the government. This scheme will also fail due to dwindling investors

(the currently employed). More so, now that the "Baby Boomers" are

applying for their Social Security dividends. With the investment money

being spent over the years by the government, the only alternative

left is to borrow the money; thus, putting this Nation deeper into

debt!

A Ponzi scheme is a private operation for voluntary investors who want to get

rich quick and the Social Security System is a government operation for

involuntary investors who know they will never get rich!

Since it was passed into law, Social Security has become the Congress's

and the Administration's private "Slush Fund" to do with, whatever; they

desire to do with it!
