    Ummm. He was a terrorist who destroyed the lives of 169 Americans, and shook the lives of thousands who miss them.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    They pay them on a daily basis as the securities mature. We have yet to default. Should we instead use the SS surplus to purchase private debt; the yields that enron offered back in 2000 were quite nice!

    There isn't enough revenue to fund the 3.7 trillion dollar govt and the IOU's in SS/Medicare which is why we need massive govt. spending cuts and a growing economy that will grow revenue.

Reagan talked about American exceptionalism and promoted individual wealth creation making people feel great about themselves and challenged them to be better than they could be. That incentive paid off a booming economy and great individual wealth creation
    I'm not perfect, I've just never heard anybody on the Right not parrot the line that Reagan = George Washington and Jesus Christ all rolled into one.

    I'm still laughing that you said he was wrong about anything. I think you'll have to turn in your party membership over that one.

    Spending cuts do not grow the economy, unless of course public debt crowds out private capital (but that cannot occur during periods of high unemployment or a large/negative current account). Gains in productivity, innovation, and access to new markets (be they internal or global) grow the economy. Period!

    It's obvious that you are not stupid so that only leaves one conclusion you choose to be less then truthful, you have an agenda and you do not believe that anyone can see through your BS and know what you really want, Bottom line millions of hard working people invested thier hard earned money into SS and a good portion of them depend on SS for basic needs like food and housing, so go ahead and put your fingers in it, I can't wait

    Social Security Trust Fund - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In the United States, the Social Security Trust Fund is a fund operated by the Social Security Administration into which are paid contributions from workers and employers under the Social Security system and out of which benefit payments to retirees, survivors, and the disabled, and general administrative expenses are paid.

    Most of the fund is considered float and can be invested in securities issued by the federal government. These securities can be redeemed as needed to make benefit payments in the future when contributions derived from payroll taxes and self-employment contributions no longer are sufficient to fully fund then-current benefit payments. (The controversy over whether the U.S. government is capable of doing this is a topic of the sustainability of the unified Federal budget.)

    Because under current federal law these securities represent future obligations that must be repaid, the federal government includes these securities within the overall national debt.[1][2] The portion of the national debt that is not considered "publicly held" represents the obligations incurred by the government to itself, the bulk of which consists of the government's obligations to the Social Security Trust Fund

    There is one large Ponzi Scheme that needs to be broken down and dismantled it's called Wall Street all them brokers who walk away with millions and billions of of dollars should be brough to trial for participating in a Ponzi Scheme.

    Umm, McVeigh was a threat to society.
    How? He was locked up in prison never to be released.

    Of course. He was no longer a threat though. It was a revenge killing. As I stated, something I can't do.

    Maybe you can start a thread in another sub forum about how you despise the death penalty.
