Dean Baker in Truthout answers the question(s): is Social Security a Ponzi Scheme, and is The Washington Post a criminal enterprise.
Michele Bachmann Health Care be the death of conservatism.
Ron Paul says get rid of FEMA, as the country has hurricanes all the time.
Rick Perry says Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, that is ripping off young people.
Mitt Romney is sticking with the mantra that Corporations are people.
And these Bozos want to be president. Yikes!
Representative James McGovern a Massachusetts Democrat, says the following quote about cuts concerning Social Security:
“I’m frustrated as hell that you’ve got members of Congress talking about cutting benefits for Social Security recipients when they had nothing to do with this economic mess we’re in.”
I agree with his quote, as the Social Security tax that we the workers have been, some still paying into it, has nothing to do with the deficit, as it is separate from the overall budget.
So why are the Republicans so adamantly for cutting back or killing SS? Do they think we are living the high life? Not.
One think the Republicans don’t want to do is piss off granny, as they will come back right at you.
The AARP has endorsed benefit cuts, which is not a good thing. Here’s an organization that is supposed to be doing things to help the retired and the elderly, and now it looks like they want to help kick them to the curb.
“AARP now has concluded that change is inevitable, and it wants to be at the table to try to minimize the pain.” more…
If the Republicans do get their with the budget, then they will surely face the repercussions from the voters in 2012. If not, the bread lines will start up and probably be no end to it.

Rush Limbaugh is all nerved up about some conservatives who don’t like Sarah Palin. Of course Limbaugh thinks that Palin would be a good president. Then he goes on to say that President Obama and the Democratic Party, are destroying this country. No Rush, it’s not president and the Democratic Party that is destroying this country, it is you, and likes of you with your garbage filled mouth and hatred for the president, and anyone who is a Democrat, Liberal and or Progressive.
What’s been going on in Wisconsin, and a couple of other states, with their GOP governors, and Republican led state assemblies, is unconscionably at best, at what they have done to the unionized workers, the teachers, firefighters, police, trash collectors, and who ever else has jobs with the city, town or state. These people give it their all, and they are not breaking the bank, as far as wages, pensions, etc., etc. Shame on those Republicans who were voted into office, to serve and work with their respective constituents, instead of sticking it up their asses, and think nothing of it.
The reason why this country is in deep shit, is that we had eight years of Bush and Company, with the tax breaks and give away to the idle 1% percent, while the rest of the people get the crumbs. The Republicans keep saying that if you keep giving tax breaks to the idle rich, and the big corporations, then the jobs will be there. So far, that has not really happened. What has happened is that health care premiums keep going up, more foreclosures, more people going on food stamps, and whatever help they can get, and the Republican Party keeps turning a blind eye, like it will just go away by itself.
Do the Democrats want to cut and/or abolish Social Security? Of course not. The Republicans want to do away with it, because they think there is no need for it. So, what is a retiree to do, if the Republicans got their way, since most IRAs went into the tank, and are virtually worthless. It’s just a sad situation right now, and it is going to get worse, if we keep listening to the GOP, Limbaugh, the neanderthals at Fox “Propaganda” News, and any other right-wing jackasses who don’t know any better.
Rush Limbaugh, don’t be blaming the Democrats for destroying the country. Its you, and the crazed bullshit, you spew out of your mouth on a daily basis. If this was Canada, or a few other countries, you would no be allowed to be talking like the way you do now. You would be called on the carpet, and yanked off the air. You’re lucky that dosen’t happen here, but I wish it would.
