Via 11 Alive:

Atlanta is preparing to permanently end its relationship with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in regards to accepting immigration detainees at the Atlanta City Jail, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced Thursday.

“We will no longer be complicit with a policy that intentionally inflicts misery on a vulnerable population without giving any thought to the fallout,” Lance Bottoms said. “As the birthplace of the civil rights movement, we are called to be better than this.”

Thursday’s announcement comes after Lance Bottoms signed an executive order in June that said the city would not accept any more ICE detainees. She also issued an executive order to end the contract between ICE and the city jail.

Since then, Lance Bottoms said several ICE detainees have been removed from the jail with approximately five people still held.

California Couple Falls In Love And Adopts A Sad Dog From A Los Angeles Animal Shelter

 

Via Daily Mail:

See The Saddest Dog HERE at a local adoption center in California has finally found a home after a Sacramento couple went against staff’s recommendation to find a more friendly pooch.

Jessica Williams and her boyfriend Jared had recently moved into an apartment that permitted dogs. Even though Jared was open to the idea, he asked her if she could wait until her birthday in November.

But Jessica started searching around for her future pet, and a stray dog at a Los Angeles shelter won her heart.

‘He would snarl and snap at people as they walked by,’ Williams told The Dodo. ‘I had never seen a sadder dog and knew we couldn’t leave him there.’

essica and Jared made the six-hour journey from Northern California but the workers continuously insisted that they instead adopt another pet.

‘The shelter also told us he wasn’t friendly,’ said Jessica, adding the shelter staff said ‘he wouldn’t be a dog that would come over to us to be cuddly.’

Benji, who had been at the shelter for 10 days, wasn’t too fond of strangers.

A flea allergy caused him to lose much of his fur and the shelter staff weren’t very open to the idea of allowing the three to spend time together.

The dog-loving couple thought otherwise and signed the required adoption papers, making Benji an official member of their family against the shelter’s advice.

Who Stole Our Social Security Money

WHO TOOK MY MONEY?

Actually, President Kennedy and Sergeant Shriver were the first ones to misuse the Social Security account.  They used Social Security funds to start the Peace Corps.  Not the first or last time our money has been taken from American citizens and given to foreign nations. Things every U.S. citizen should know and remember about Social Security and changes made:

A History Lesson on Your Social Security Card . . . just in case some of you young whipper-snappers (& some older ones) didn’t know this.   It’s easy to check out, if you don’t believe it.

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, NOT FOR
IDENTIFICATION, was removed.  Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program.

He promised:
1.  That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary. – 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.
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. – Under Democrat President 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 Democrats 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 Democrat 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 U.S.

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 receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve.  But it’s worth a try.

Colorado Sporting Goods Store To Remove All Nike Products- ‘Colin, You Just Don’t Know What Sacrifice Is’

Smart business move on his part and it took a LOT of “guts”

Via WJ:

A Colorado Springs, Colorado, sporting goods store owner has decided to stop carrying Nike gear in his store in response to Nike’s partnership with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The store, Prime Time Sports, is owned by Stephen Martin who was inspired by the Nike slogan to “just do it,” according to an interview with local KSN News.

The store currently has an entire wall, dedicated to Nike gear, and Martin is unsure if his store will be able to stay open without the athletic wear giant’s products.

“Pretty sure I won’t survive without them,” Martin said. “I gotta do what I gotta do. I’m just doing it.”[…]

The Prime Time Sports owner isn’t just making this bold move against Nike because of his own experiences. He believes that it’s important to draw attention to who the real heroes are.

Martin told the story about his father-in-law, who was a POW and was forced to watch his fellow soldiers be beaten and even killed, and he wasn’t able to intervene.

“He said the hardest part for me was watching his fellow soldiers get beat up and killed in front of him and he couldn’t defend them because it would have cost him his life,” Martin said.

“So Colin, you don’t know what sacrifice is, you just don’t know what it is, in my opinion.”
