I reread my opening post and couldn't find anything to justify piglet's girly protests, I can only guess he didn't read it before menstruating.

No doubt, but it's a ponzi scheme that would've lasted maybe two more decades if the SS Trust Fund box wasn't like the suitcase in Dumb and Dumber when they finally handed it to that chick, full of IOUs "every one of those is good as cash."

They were willing to sacrifice the paychecks of those on the bottom rung(GS civ. and US Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen)here and abroad, safe or in harms way; but were not willing to sacrifice thier own paychecks as they live extremely comfortable day in and day out. And Jim you are ok with thier pay and benefits????????? How can you be??????????
You might be right Chief, a cut might make them more responsible with other people's money. I was just looking at the total of their pay and benefits being a drop in the bucket of overspending.

Who knows when the fund was emptied, but I didn't think we'd get to the point when more was being paid out than was coming in until the bulk of Baby Boomers reached eligibility age.

The road to hell is filled with good intentions. And I'm not sure very many politicians even have the best of intentions.

I think it's the only time our Congress ever has a unanimous vote as well.

I'm all for separating it. But there is plenty wrong with Social Security. The ages are too low, we've got a huge block of people reaching retirement age, but without the population growth to fund them. Which might be okay if the money they paid in their whole lives was still there. And there are too many people, like that fat moron in the diaper, gaming the system, collecting disability.
