The Playpond of the 50s

When I was a young girl, my mom went to work. That was the thing to do during the war.  Many employers were left without help since so many men had gone to fight.

One of the places Mom worked was B. F. Goodrich.  She was in Playpond production. This layout shows me splashing in mine during the early 50s.

At that time there was no Medicare. Families would take care of their seniors. We didn't worry about it. But in 1966  the first enrollees began collecting.  While more and more women joined the workforce permanently, prices began to rise. People became dependent on Medicare. They didn't have anyone at home to help the oldsters. Many couldn't afford to help their parents. Then needed Medicare.

It became more and more necessary over the years. Now our president has raided Medicare to help fund his extremely costly Obamacare Package.  Not only that,  but his comrades stuck more taxes and prohibitions in that 2,000 page document...the one that most congressmen didn't read, either for lack of time or interest, before it was signed against the wishes of the majority of citizens.

You may be dismayed to learn that  due to this 'health care' bill, you will have a new tax, come 2013 on the sale of your home.  You can read below about that  tax.  But be aware...this in only a small part of what is in the oppressive bill.  It must be repealed!

When does your home become part of your health care? After 2012! Your vote counts big time in 2012, make sure you and all your friends and family know about this! **** *HOME SALES TAX* I thought you might find this interesting, -- maybe even SICKENING! The National Association of Realtors is all over this and working to get it repealed, -- before it takes effect. But, I am very pleased we aren't the only ones who know about this ploy to steal billions from unsuspecting homeowners.  How many realtors do you think will vote Democratic in 2012? Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it? That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home, etc. When did this happen? It's in the health care bill, -- and it goes into effect in 2013. Why 2013? Could it be so that it doesnt come to light until after the 2012 elections? So, this is change you can believe in? Under the new health care bill all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% sales tax. If you sell a $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. This bill is set to screw the retiring generation, -- who often downsize their homes. Does this make your November, 2012 vote more important? Oh, you weren't aware that this was in the ObamaCare bill? Guess what; you aren't alone! There are more than a few members of Congress that weren't aware of it either.
