    The "IOUs" are U.S. Treasury notes, which are every bit as liquid as cash. You know ... because cash is backed by Treasury notes?

    So you think they should keep SS in a cash type account?
    SS should have been kept solvent without the use of IOU's that will have be be funded with printed money or by borrowing all of which hurt the value of the dollar

    You need to get a job in the Obama Administration because you don't have a clue either.

    You're just never going to understand this, are you? By law, when there is a SS surplus, the government is required to take the surplus and purchase Treasuries. Treasuries earn interest. What do you think they should do? Go down to the Acme Savings and Loan, get the money in 10s and 20s and put it on a shelf?

    Heritage Foudation -- home of the health care mandate.

    Which is not to say they're wrong. The question is -- so what?

These worthless individuals are committing suicide as the poll numbers are now showing and they are doing it with their attitudes and their actions.
    Vietnam was one of the STUPIDEST wars we could have fought, we wasted thousands upon thousands of American lives to help out the damn French. There was NO reason to go to war in Vietnam. So to equate a movement against that war, and Occupy is not a great way to attack them. Granted, the whole extreme "hippy" thing annoys me, down to how they dress and stuff, but those protests helped end that war, with a massive American unhappiness with the war and how it was going.
