German flying automobile
THIS IS TRULY AMAZING.. GOD KNOWS WHAT THE PRICE WILL BE. IT HAS AN OFF THE SHELF ROTAX 912 ENGINE .
THERE ARE PLENTY OF AIRCRAFT FLYING RIGHT NOW WITH THAT SAME ENGINE. BEAUTIFUL DESIGN….
The GERMANS are always coming up with incredible stuff. This has to be one of the slickest machines ever engineered.
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 family
and friends. 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, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.

Our Social Security
Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social
Security (FICA) Program. He promised:
1.) That participation in the Program would be
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,
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, 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
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:
If you haven’t seen this, it is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. It starts off slow, but gets better as it goes, it does take a while to get to the main part of the story, so be patient. This is an old Texan telling about a guy dynamiting his septic tank. I laugh just thinking about it. Rough language.

This is really worth the reading. Very short.
Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men
Who signed the Declaration of Independence?
Five signers were captured by the British as traitors,
And tortured before they died.
Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.
Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army;
Another had two sons captured.
Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or
Hardships of the Revolutionary War.
They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes,
And their sacred honor.
What kind of men were they?
Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.
Eleven were merchants,
Nine were farmers and large plantation owners;
Men of means, well educated,
But they signed the Declaration of Independence
Knowing full well that the penalty would be death if
They were captured.
Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and
Trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the
British Navy. He sold his home and properties to
Pay his debts, and died in rags.
Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British
That he was forced to move his family almost constantly.
He served in the Congress without pay, and his family
Was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him,
And poverty was his reward.
Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer,
Walton , Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.
At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that
The British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson
Home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General
George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed,
And Nelson died bankrupt.
Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed.
The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.
John Hart was driven from his wife”s bedside as she was dying.
Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill
Were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests
And caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his
So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and
Silently thank these patriots. It”s not much to ask for the price they paid.
Remember: freedom is never free!
I hope you will show your support by sending this to as many
People as you can, please. It”s time we get the word out that patriotism
Is NOT a sin, and the Fourth of July has more to it than beer,
Picnics, and baseball games.
CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT TYPE OF COUNTRY WE WOULD HAVE TODAY IF OUR PRESENT
LEADERS WERE FACED WITH THIS TYPE OF EVENT.
This is the only ‘Adams-Farwell’ automobile left in existence.
They were made in Dubuque, Iowa between 1890-1913 and are really unique!
(Crankshaft is stationary while engine spins !)
It never caught on, but it’s fun to watch.
