    Don't even joke. I'm planning on Uncle Sam owing me $2,400 a month starting in 9.5 years (I am cashing out at 62). If Uncle Sam refuses to cough up the $2.5K each month I will be stuck working to 65 or so instead of 59 1/2. And I *REALLY* do not want to keep doing what I do for a living until age 65.

    Dafuq?!?!?!?! Pro tip: Our currency is made of cotton/linen and precious metals but NOT trees. If you have money made from trees/paper; someone is taking you for a ride. And Uncle Sam doesn't print money. Federal Reserve is privately owned by international bankers and a few USA banks that own stock sold to them by the original bankers (Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Chase, etc).

    But obesity will not be their problem when the right wing has its way and welfare programs are ended. And then you most certainly will give a damn when scores of millions look to folks like you as a source of food.

    That is indeed the logical extension of the far right getting its way in matters of public policy. And it will be because of folks like you that we end up in that situation. You combine that with the labor trends and it only spells disaster for America.

    So what is your solution for America?

    QUOTE Snappo

    <Cotton tree may refer to:>

    Gossypium, the cotton plant, which can grow from a bush to a tree.


    And Uncle Sam doesn't print money.

    When fed chairman, Ben Bernanke,said this to the House Committee on Financial Services "We Are Printing Money, Just 'Not Literally ".Who was the WE that he was referring to?



    Federal Reserve is privately owned by international bankers and a few USA banks that own stock sold to them by the original bankers (Rothschild, Rockefeller, Morgan, Chase, etc).
    Q: Who owns the Federal Reserve Bank?

    A: There are actually 12 different Federal Reserve Banks around the country, and they are owned by big private banks. But the banks donít necessarily run the show. Nationally, the Federal Reserve System is led by a Board of Governors whose seven members are appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate.

    SOoo...seeing as i own a few shares of stock in U.S. Bancorp (USB) as well a few other financials that means i can have some inside scoop on what the Rothschild s, Rockefeller s,and Morgans are up to?

    You confuse SELFISH ENDS with the goals set up in the document which begin WE THE PEOPLE. Once you make that fatal mistake you pass up Alice down the rabbit hole and are no longer in the real world.

    Nope. Definitely in the real world. I can tell because I'm surrounded by collectivist control freaks who want to initiation aggression* against society.

    Nope - definitely anybody who identifies the Founders who wrote the Constitution as collectivist control freaks is a resident of Wonderland.
