Have fun with the whining Obama-voting morons we tried to warn http://elisabethhalligan.com Mommy RN Well, I’ve never expected to receive a penny of SS (I even set my retirement account to not include estimated SS income when it determines an expected annual income based off of my savings and investments), so I’m definitely not thrilled about finding out how much less my check is going to be this coming week. Frankly, I don’t want the danged government taking a single penny. I feel badly that people have grown accustomed to expecting SS to support them but anyone who thought the government actually had that money sitting around earning interest and was returning it to them at end of life was an idiot. Government never leaves money sitting around when they can figure out a way to spend it. Although that is one of my usual comebacks when people get on me for ruining the world by having seven children: “We’re just trying to help support your social security benefits.” (Although the comeback I use the most is “We’re just trying to outbreed the stupid people. I see we need at least one more.”) PB-in-AL She deleted her post and the whole thread is gone. http://ommag.blogspot.com/ OMMAG @NCTraveller …. consider it the cost of YOUR education. Tallyman Their shepherd, who they believed loves them, lied to them and is now taking a cut of their money. His sheeple aren’t smart enough to have learned to distrust their shepherd, who only serves himself. As Frank Perdue loved his chickens, so Barack loves his sheeple. n.n The payroll tax “holiday” sabotaged the long-term solvency of Social Security. There is rarely anything in this world without consequences. If people want Social Security, then they have to pay for it. Running trillion dollar account deficits only serves to devalue both capital and labor, which ultimately results in citizens serving at the pleasure of the sovereign. Igor Strange, isn’t it, how this NEVER made the news. I wonder why?
