    If I respond to this, are you going to cry again that I'm off-topic?

Think about having that amount in an insurance policy that went to your family or in an annuity. Just goes to show how clueless you are.

    If you paid into SS all your life do you care where you benefit come from, Conservative?

    You can read right?
    Yes, I can read, do you always believe Wikipedia? Trust funds are off budgets, but the surplus isn't and was put on budget in the 60's by LBJ. You can research that. Trust fund doesn't exist as your contribution to SS was spent long before you retired and went to cover others. Do some actual research and stop embarrassing yourself.

    That's a badge of honor from you, Conservative. If you think Perry can win saying that SS is a Ponzi scheme, fine vote for him in the Texas primary.

    Yes, I do care because I could have taken that money put it into a simple savings account and have a helluva lot more money than you will get from SS as well as driving up the debt. How are those IOU's going to be funded and what will that do to the value of your SS check?

    TRACES OF TERRORISM - THE WARNINGS - TRACES OF TERRORISM - THE WARNINGS - F.B.I. Knew for Years About Terror Pilot Training - NYTimes.com

    And again, existing intelligence and laws would have sufficed to prevent the event. No Patriot Act needed, had the govt been paying attention and taken advantage of what was already allowed.

    The "no one could have conceived of using jets as weapons" is SOOO much bull****. During the cold war, FOIA docyments revealed a tentative plan to disguise military aircraft as civilian to fake a hijacking by Cuba. Rejected because they decided the media would see through the ruse, NOT because it was "wrong" in any way. (I can link you to that too, if you like. Got the first one on the first page on Google.
    Anyone wondering what I'm talking about start here:

    If all the voters are as misinformed as you, no he cannot win, but those that understand that SS fund is broke, that acts like a Ponzi scheme and that their contribution was paid to someone else won't be voting for someone who doesn't do something to change the system

    By the way it won't matter who I vote for in the TX primary as this state will vote for the Republican candidate regardless of who it is. Obama will lose TX by 3 million votes.
