Ronald Reagan speaks out on Socialized Medicine, circa 1961. Audio file.

For more information on the ongoing works of President Reagan’s Foundation, visit them at http://www.reaganfoundation.org

Ronald Reagan Speaks Out Against Socialized Medicine is a 1961 LP featuring Ronald Reagan. In this more than ten-minute recording, Reagan “criticized Social Security for supplanting private savings and warned that subsidized medicine would curtail Americans’ freedom” and that &ldquoretty soon your son won’t decide when he’s in school, where he will go or what he will do for a living. He will wait for the government to tell him.” Reagan says that “Government has invaded the free precincts of private citizens,” stating that the U.S. government owns “1/5th of the total industrial capacity of the United States.” Reagan says “One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project, most people are a little reluctant to oppose anything that suggests medical care for people who possibly can’t afford it.” Reagan cites the failure of president Harry Truman‘s national health insurance proposal as evidence of the American people’s rejection of socialized medicine.

Hi,

I just signed an important petition to help get our country back on track, and I hope you’ll join me.

In today’s economy, working folks like you and me need a fair deal and a chance to get ahead. But some CEOs just go too far. They rake in millions while cutting back health benefits and raises for their employees.

It’s outrageous, and it’s only getting worse for working families as the cost of everything from gas to groceries keeps going up.

It’s time to bring back some balance in this economy, and that’s why I signed a petition supporting the Employee Free Choice Act, which would help level the playing field by giving workers more power to demand better wages, health care, and working conditions.

Our goal is one million signatures. Will you take a moment to sign, and pass this along? Go to:
http://freechoiceact.org/WA

We’re all in this together. And this bill is a real opportunity for all of us, by giving workers more muscle to raise living standards, improve health care, and stop outsourcing. Please, help us get to one million signatures! It just takes one minute – be sure to upload your picture, too!

SCENARIO:


Customer: Yes, I want to cancel my account. I don't want to do business with you any longer.

The Bank: Why?

Customer: You're giving credit to illegal immigrants and I don't think it's right. I'm taking my business elsewhere.

The Bank: Well, Mr. Customer, we don't want to see you do that, but we can't stop you.. I'll help you close the account. What is your account number?

Customer: (gives account number)

The Bank: For security purposes and for your protection, can you please give me the last four digits of your social security number?

Customer: No?

 

The Bank: Mr. Customer, I need to verify your information, but in order to help you, I'll need verification of who you are.

Customer: Why should I give you my social security number? The reason I'm closing my account is that your bank is issuing credit cards to illegal immigrants who don't have social security numbers. You are targeting that audience and want their business. Let's say I'm an illegal immigrant and you've given me a credit card. I have a question about it and call for assistance. You wouldn't be asking me for a Social Security number, would you?

The Bank: No sir, I wouldn't.

Customer: Why not?

The Bank: Because you would have pressed '2' to speak in Spanish. We don't ask for that information when calling in on the Spanish line.

Now this............ my friends, is totally brilliant and worth the read or is that reed or possibly Reid!

This is for those who think German is hard.

1) The bandage was wound around the wound.


2) The farm was used to produce produce.


3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.


4) We must polish the Polish furniture.


5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.

6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present

8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

10) I did not object to the object.

11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row

13) They were too close to the door to close it.

14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.

15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail

18) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

19) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.

20) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?


Let's face it - English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France . Sweetmeats ar e candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell?

How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which, an alarm goes off by going on.

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.

PS. - Why doesn't "Buick" rhyme with "quick"


You lovers of the English language might enjoy this

There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is
< U> "UP."

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?  At a meeting, why does a topic come UP?  Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is itUP to the secretary to write UP a report?

We call UP our friends.  And we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen.  We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car.    At other times the little word has real special meaning.  People stir UPtrouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses. To be dressed is one thing, but to be dressed UP is special.

And this UP is confusing:  A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP. We openUP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.

We seem to be pretty mixed
UP about UP! To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary.  In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions. If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used.  It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more. When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP.  When the sun comes out we say it is clearingUP

When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP.

When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP.

One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it
UP, for now my time is UP , so........... it is time to shut UP.....

PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO ALL FRIENDS!
Working America and the AFL-CIO want to know

About the unique issues that women face in the workplace.
Dear Friend,

What do you do if you need to take time off work to care for a sick child or parent?
Does having children hurt your career?
Unequal pay. Maternity leave. Spiraling health care costs. Family and children plus a full-time career.
Working people face these issues every day. But all too often, women especially don’t have the resources or support to help meet these challenges.
Working America and the AFL-CIO are conducting a nationwide survey on what it's like to be a working woman. If you’re a working woman, your opinion matters greatly. Please take a moment to complete the Ask a Working Woman survey and share your thoughts and experiences.
The results of this survey have never been more important. Women’s rights and labor organizations will use the results to advocate for women across the country over the next two years. Your voice matters. We want to hear from you (or the women in your life), Robin.
It's short, easy (we promise) and will serve as an invaluable tool for moving working women's issues into the national dialogue. Click here now to take the survey.
And if you’re not a working woman, forward this e-mail to your sister, your mother, your co-workers and your friends to make sure their voices are heard.
Thanks for helping lead the way for women in the workplace. Together, we can make lasting change.

In support of working women everywhere,

Working America, AFL-CIO

Part  1
In  just 16 months..  Remember the election in  2006? 
Thought you might like to read the  following: 
A little over 16  MONTHS ago: 
1) Consumer confidence stood at a  2 1/2 year high; 
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a  gallon; 
3) The unemployment rate was  4.5%. 
 
Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006  we have seen: 
1) Consumer confidence plummet;
2)  The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3.50 a gallon; 
3)  Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase); 
4) American  households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock  and mutual fund losses); 
5) Americans have seen their home  equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars; 
6) 1% of American homes  are in foreclosure. 
 
America voted for change in  2006, and we got it! 
Remember  it's Congress that makes law not the President. He has to work with  what's handed to him.  
  
      
Quote  of the Day........"My  friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the  world.  I hope you'll join with me as we try to change  it." -- Barack Obama 
  
  
Part  2:
Taxes...
Whether  Democrat or a Republican you will find these statistics  enlightening and amazing.  
www.taxfoundation.org/publications/show/151.html    
Taxes under Clinton  1999                    Taxes  under Bush 2008  
Single making 30K - tax  $8,400            Single making 30K - tax $4,500 
Single  making 50K - tax  $14,000         Single  making 50K - tax $12,500 
Single  making 75K - tax  $23,250         Single  making 75K - tax $18,750 
Married  making 60K - tax $16,800        Married making 60K- tax $9,000 
Married  making 75K - tax $21,000        Married making 75K - tax $18,750 
Married  making 125K - tax $38,750     Married  making 125K - tax $31,250 
 
Both  democratic candidates will return to the higher tax  rates It is amazing how many  people that fall into the categories above think Bush is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President  ever. If Obama or Hillary are elected, they both say they will  repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that  fall into the categories above can't wait for it to happen.  This is like the movie The Sting with Paul Newman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even know what  happened.
 

PART  3:
Boy, am I  confused.  I have been hammered with the propaganda that  it  is  the Iraq war and the war on terror that is bankrupting us.  I now find  that to be RIDICULOUS.  You think  the war in Iraq is costing us too much?    Read  this:

Birth Certificate shows that we were born

A Death Certificate shows that we died

Pictures show that we lived!

Have a seat . . . Relax . . . And read this slowly.


I Believe...

That just because two people argue,

it doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue,
it doesn't mean they do love each other.

I Believe...
That we don't have to change friends if
we understand that friends change.

I Believe...
That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt
you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I Believe...
That true friendship continues to grow, even over
the longest distance. Same goes for true love.


I Believe...
That you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.

I Believe...
That it's taking me a long time
to become the person I want to be.

I Believe...
That you should always leave loved ones with
loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I Believe...
That you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I Believe...
That we are responsible for what
we do,  no matter how we feel.

I Believe...
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I Believe...
That heroes are the people who do what has to be done
when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I Believe...
That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I Believe...
That my best friend and I, can do anything, or nothing and have the best time.

I Believe...
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you
when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

I Believe...
That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, 
but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe...
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had
and what you've learned from them and less to do
with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I Believe...
That it isn't always enough, to be forgiven by others.

sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I Believe...
That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I Believe...
That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are,
but, we are responsible for who we become.

I Believe...
That you shouldn't be so eager to find
out a secret. It could change your life Forever.

I Believe...
Two people can look at the exact same
thing and see something totally different.

I Believe...
That your life can be changed in a matter of
hours by people who don't even know you.

I Believe...
That even when you think you have no more to give, when
a friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.

I Believe...
That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I Believe...
That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

I Believe...
That you should send this to all of the people that you believe in, I just did.

they just make the most of everything."

From the other side of the fence..... Received the

following from Tom O'Malley, who was a Director with

SW BELL in Mexico City:



"I spent five years working in Mexico . I worked

under a tourist Visa for three months and could

legally renew it for three more months. After that

you were working illegally. I was technically illegal

for three weeks waiting on the FM3 approval."



"During that six months our Mexican and U.S. Attorneys

were working to secure a permanent work visa called a

'FM3'. It was in addition to my U.S. passport that I

had to show each time I entered and left the country.

Barbara's was the same, except hers did not permit

her to work."



"To apply for the FM3, I needed to submit the

following notarized originals (not copies):

1. Birth certificate for Barbara and me.

2. Marriage certificate

3. High school transcripts and proof of graduation.

4. College transcripts for every college I attended

and proof of graduation.

5. Two letters of recommendation from supervisors I

had worked for at least one year.

6. A letter from the St. Louis Chief of Police

indicating that I had no arrest record in the U.S and

no outstanding warrants and, was "a citizen in good

standing."

7. Finally; I had to write a letter about myself that

clearly stated why there was no Mexican Citizen with

my skills and why my skills were important to Mexico.

We called it our 'I am the greatest person on Earth'

letter. It was fun to write."



"All of the above were in English that had to be

translated into Spanish and be certified as legal

translations, and our signatures notarized. It

produced a folder about 1.5 inches thick with English

on the left side and Spanish on the right."



"Once they were completed Barbara and I spent about

five hours, accompanied by a Mexican Attorney, touring

Mexican Government office locations and being

photographed and fingerprinted at least three times at

each location, and we remember at least four locations

where we were instructed on Mexican tax, labor,

housing, and criminal law and that we were required to

obey their laws or face the consequences. We could

not protest any of the Governments actions or we would

be committing a felony We paid out four thousand

dollars in fees and bribes to complete the process.

When this was done we could legally bring in our

household goods that were held by U.S. Customs in

Laredo Texas. This meant we had rented furniture in

Mexico while awaiting our goods. There were extensive

fees involved here that the company paid."



"We could not buy a home and were required to rent at

very high rates and under contract and compliance with

Mexican law."



"We were required to get a Mexican drivers license.

This was an amazing process. The company arranged for

the Licensing agency to come to our headquarters

location with their photography and finger print

equipment and the laminating machine. We showed our

U.S. license, were photographed and fingerprinted

again and issued the license instantly after paying

out a six dollar fee.

We did not take a written or driving test and never

received instructions on the rules of the road. Our

only instruction was to never give a policeman your

license if stopped and asked. We were instructed to

hold it against the inside window away from his grasp.

If he got his hands on it you would have to pay

ransom to get it back."



"We then had to pay and file Mexican income tax!

Annually using the number of our FM3 as our ID number.

The company's Mexican accountants did this for us and

we just signed what they prepared. It was about

twenty legal size pages annually."



"The FM 3 was good for three years and renewable for

two more after paying more fees."



"Leaving the country meant turning in the FM3 and

certifying we were leaving no debts behind and no

outstanding legal affairs (warrants, tickets or liens)

before our household goods were released to customs."



"It was a real adventure and if any of our Senators or

Congressman went through it once they would have a

different attitude toward Mexico."



"The Mexican Government uses its vast military and

police forces to keep its citizens intimidated and

compliant. They never protest at their capitol or

government offices, but do protest daily in front of

the United States Embassy. The U.S. embassy looks

like a strongly reinforced fortress and during most

protests the Mexican Military surround the block with

their men standing shoulder to shoulder in full riot

gear to protect the Embassy. These protests are never

shown on U.S. or Mexican TV. There is a large public

park across the street where they do their protesting.

Anything can cause a protest such as proposed law

changes in California or Texas."



Please feel free to share this with everyone who

thinks we are being hard on illegals

THIS IS NOT THE 'DON'T BUY' GAS FOR ONE DAY, BUT IT WILL
SHOW YOU HOW WE CAN GET GAS BACK DOWN TO $1.30 PER GALLON.




This was sent by a retired Coca Cola executive. It came
from one of his engineer buddies who retired from
Halliburton. If you are tired of the gas prices going up
AND they will continue to rise this summer, take time to
read this please.



Phillip Hollsworth offered this good idea.

This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the 'don't buy gas on a
certain day' campaign that was going around last April or
May!

It's worth your consideration. Join the resistance!!!!


< BR>I hear we are going to hit close to $ 4.00 a gallon by next
summer, and it might go higher!! Want gasoline prices to
come down?



We need to take some intelligent, united action. The oil
companies just laughed at that because they knew we wouldn't
continue to 'hurt' ourselves by refusing to buy gas.



It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem
for them.

BUT, whoever thought of this idea has come up with a plan
that can really work. Please read on and join with us!



By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about
$2.00 is super cheap. Me too! It is currently $3.19 for
regular unleaded in my town.



Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have
conditioned us to think that the cost of a gallon of gas is
CHEAP at $1.50 - $1.75, we need to take aggressive action to
teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace..not sellers.



With the price of g asoline going up more each day, we
consumers need to take action.



The only way we are going to see the price of gas come down
is if we hit someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing
their gas! And, we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves.



How? Since we all rely on our cars, we can't just stop
buying gas.



But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all act
together to force a price war.



Here's the idea: For the rest of this year, DON'T purchase
ANY gasoline from the two biggest companies (which now are
one), EXXON and MOBIL.



If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined to
reduce their prices.

If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have
to follow suit.



But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions
of Exxon and Mobil gas buyers. It's really simple to do!
Now, don't wimp out on me at this point...keep reading andI'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!



I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us send it
to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) ... and those 300 send
it to at least ten more (300 x10 = 3,000)...and so on, by
the time the message reaches the sixth group of people, we
will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers.

If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten
friends each, then 30 million people will have been
contacted!



If it goes one level further, you guessed it..... THREE
HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!



Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. That's
all!



(If you don't understand how we can reach 300 million and
all you have to do is send this to 10 people.... Well,
let's face it, you just aren't a mathematician. But I am
so trust me on this one.



How long would all that take? If each of us sends this
e-mail out t o ten more people within one day of receipt, all
300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the
next 8 days !!!



I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much potential,
did you!

Acting together we can make a difference.



If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on. I
suggest that we not buy from EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL THEY LOWER
THEIR PRICES TO THE $2.00 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS
CAN REALLY WORK.
