    Yes, most 80 year olds, are able to set around searching for the right button to punch on their keypads ALL DAY long. The rest of us are busy working to make sure that when you walk to the mailbox and open it, your SS check, that a democrat, long dead, made sure would be there post mortem just for you, even though you want to trash such social programs, all..........day..........long!!!!!!

    Why do you care? Had you been old enough then, you'd have shot yourself in the foot by opposing SS at the time the party that represents American citizens and not BIG BUSINESS, was creating it.

The 2004 election was very close and had there not been this apparent real estate boom market created by all the toxic actions of lenders, borrowers (not the poor in this case but "flippers") appraisers and investment bankers Bush would have not had nearly that appearance of a robust economy (which was just a fašade as we were to learn a few years later. So trying to pass the buck, which I realize is the first republiscum reflex when they f**k things up which is every time, is not going to work.

    There's that famous rightwing "projection" again. It's always there, especially as a last gasp effort to escape.

    You seem to believe I am older than I actually am but that doesn't matter, what matters is you and I contribute to SS as does your employer and mine. That money was to go into a SS trust fund for our retirement supplement when we retire. LBJ put that money on budget and it has been spent replaced with IOU's that have to be funded in the future. Of course that means you pay for my SS and retirement which makes it a Ponzi scheme. You don't see to understand reality.

    You think it is only the Republican part that represents big business? As I have shown you really don't have a lot of credibility or understanding of reality.

    Why don't you do some research for a change and see what Bush tried to do in 2006 and what Barney Frank and Chris Dodd said about Freddie and Fannie? What you have no understanding of is the Housing bubble and what really created it and when it started. Anyone who believe 2004 was the beginning is very na´ve, gullible and truly a partisan hack.

    So you have your own money invested in your business and generates an income for you and your family. Did you get that dividend before you made the investment like you believe should have come from Reagan's military spending prior to making that investment?

    The real issue is yes, your income taxes now fund my SS and Medicare but the question is why should they? LBJ saw to it and you fail to recognize that.

    Lol. Says the chief partisan hack. If the economy crashed on Obama's watch, YOU'D NEVER LET ANYBODY BLAME IT ON THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION. You should change your avatar. Btw, you're the one that told me that you were in your mid forties when Reagan was elected, always bragging on your mature age and experience.
