Pass the Butter

Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys.
When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback,
so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back.  

It was a white substance with no food appeal, 
so they added the yellow colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter.

How do you like it?
They have come out with some clever new flavourings.

Do you know what the difference between margarine and butter?   


Both have the same amount of calories. 

Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams; compared to 5 grams for margarine. 

Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter,
according to a recent Harvard Medical Study. 

Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods. 

Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few and     
only because they are added! 

Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavours of other foods. 

Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years. 

Here are some things you should know about Margarine. 

It is very vigh in Trans-fatty acids. 

It triples risk of coronary heart disease. 

It increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol) 

It increases the risk of cancers up to five times. 

It lowers quality of breast milk, 

And decreases immune response, 

And decreases insulin response. 

And for the most disturbing fact. 

Margarine is only one MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT! 

You can try this yourself: 

Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it open in your garage or shaded area.
Within a couple of days you will notice a couple of things: 

No flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it. (that should tell you something) 

It does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value.

Nothing will grow on it, Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not a find a home to grow.

Why? Because it is nearly plastic. Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?   

Chinese Proverb: 

When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it,
you have a  moral obligation to share it with  others.

Your Social Security

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this. It's easy to check out, if you don't believe it. Be sure and show it to your kids. They need a little history lesson on what's what and it doesn't matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts!!!
Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes. Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message was removed.

An old Social Security card with the "NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION" message.
Our Social Security

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social
Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be
Completely voluntary,

It's no longer Voluntary

2.) That the participants would only have to pay
1% of the first $1,400 of their annual
Incomes into the Program,

Now 7.65% On the first $90,000

3.) That the money the participants elected to put
Into the Program would be deductible from
Their income for tax purposes each year,

No longer tax deductible anymore.

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,

Under Johnson the money was moved to The General Fund and Spent

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

Under Clinton & Gore Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed

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 democratically Controlled House and Senate.

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

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

A: The Democratic Party.

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

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social
Security annuities?

A: The Democratic 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?


A: That's right!

Jimmy Carter and the Democratic 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 see 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.

This week on the Arizona border

Damn Invasion and Home land Security says we are more secure now than ever before... Get your guns and head south Men...another Alamo in the making... I mean, Look what was captured on the Arizona border this week!

Anybody want to boycott Arizona now?
It’s not about profiling!
Why was there no news coverage of this raid on the Arizona border

Definitely NOT Jose wishing to come pick lettuce!!
This is exactly why we MUST support ARIZONA.
This seizure was just five days ago. Right on the Arizona border!
This is but one seizure that has taken place along the border over the past year. There have been many more like this. (but you won't hear about it on media news.)
Not a mention on ABC - CBS - NBC - MSNBC - or CNN news!
These photos and reports come from a Spanish language news source.
Thank God for the border patrol and that they did not allow this to get in.

Stash of assault rifles.

Enough ammunition to outfit a small army was confiscated.

Military caps and equipment were among the cache of weapons

All types of assault weapons were among the cache
Many were military grade weapons with plenty of ammo.

There were enough guns to open a gun shop.

It was a major asenal of weapons including grenade launchers.

Not only weapons, but also vehicles believed to have been stolen were found at the site.

One smuggler was killed during the operation when he fired on the border patrol agents.

Numerous Police style bullet proof vests were found in one vehicle.

More than 200 large weapons were confiscated along with about 30 smaller arms

2 grenade launchers were among the cache

It appears these guys intended to portray themselves as police officers or military men.

Each and every vehicle checked had been reported
stolen in the USA in the recent past! $380,000 worth
of stolen vehicles were recovered.

More than 60 grenades of varrying size were found
Arabic writing was found on them.

Numerous Hand guns with loaded clips were also found in the cache.

A single grenade like this could bring $5,000
on the streets of the USA .

Each of these weapons could be sold for as much as
$5,000 on the black market in the USA .

More than 80 stolen cell phones were found.
These could be used for detonating bombs remotely.

Still more rifles were found stuffed in several SUV's

Clips loaded with live bullets were just too numerous to count

All types of weapons including Afghan - Russian - Chinese and many others

Why would anyone object to protecting our borders after they have seen this?
Our own Federal Government intends to sue Arizona over their law. But the Federals law reads almost word for word . Problem is, they refuse to enforce the law.
Sorta makes you wonder who our real enemies really are... Doesn't it?
