    [QUOTE=pbrauer;1059789297]You clearly are wrong, there is no doubt about it. Anyone who says Social Security is a pyramid scheme is either dishonest or an idiot.[/QUOTE

    Just like all the other arrogant liberals I know, you never admit you are wrong on any issue but like with a lot of issues you have no clue as to what you are talking about. Your money is gone, it was supposed to be there as a retirement supplement, it was never intended that your money would be spent on something else but it is gone. Madoff would be proud to put his name on this program and like Congress would love to use the billions that it generates each year for whatever they want rather than what it was intended.

    Thatís the lemming authoritarian mentality kicking in. Poor souls I guess cant help it;a DNA thingy.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Since most people don't want Social Security touched in a negative way, this boosts the chances Obama will be reelected, since Mitt Romney in on record saying he would privatized Social Security. Just look back to 2005 when President Bush tried to push forward this concept. The more he talked about it, the more the people disliked the idea.

    You are right, why wouldn't anyone want a President who added 4 trillion to the debt, increased unemployment, reduced the labor force, has 25 million plus unemployed and under employed Americans, 1% economic growth, a rising misery index, record budgets,and no clue how to run anything? Yep, ideology trumps results in the liberal world.

To continue to argue it isn't serving any purpose so in this case we can only agree to disagree. My money was long gone before I started collecting SS just like yours will be long gone as well. That wasn't the intent.

    Don't blame you from wanting to divert from the Job's speech and the very poor employment performance of your choice for the WH. Don't blame you from diverting from that record.
    You may not like it, but that does nto match the definition of a Ponzi scheme. Facts are not dependent on what you say stands.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Madoff would be proud to put his name on this program today, not the one originally intended but the one that has transformed into SS of today.

    As long as you can continue to brainwash minorities, have the union thugs in your hip pocket, and a smooth talking empty suit in office you are probably right. Sure glad I live in TX and don't have to deal with his BS

    Look at that boo, conservative is moving the ole goalpost yet again.Note the qualifier " originally intended ".I do not believe that was in any of his previous post.
