    One can't deny this fact. And, as usual, we will count on Congress to fix a system that they themselves ****ed up.

    It's when you post stuff like this that I know you and other Palin supporters are just full of **** when they talk about the 'Greatness of Americans'.

    If they make the necessary changes now that won't happen.

    our pusillanimous prez in his destitute sotu:

    To put us on solid ground, we should also find a bipartisan solution to strengthen Social Security for future generations. We must do it without putting at risk current retirees, the most vulnerable, or people with disabilities; without slashing benefits for future generations; and without subjecting Americans’ guaranteed retirement income to the whims of the stock market.

    Ok so say we did away with SS a few years ago, like when Bush wanted to move it to the market. What would have happened when the market crashed? Do we simply let the elderly fall into poverty?

    Don't worry. When he gets closer to collecting SS he will be crying to save it, too. I have found that many people that rail against SS don't even have their own retirement in order. They have little in savings and nothing in a 401K.

    whether he cries or not, there aint gonna be much there for him when he gets there

    or haven't you heard

    and you surely cannot be depending on this president to do anything about it, not after that solution-less sotu

    all this, despite the fact that he has been paying into suckerpunch security to the tune of hundreds of dollars per month---matched by his employer---for some 50 or so years

    greatest ripoff in the history of the world, this side of mainland china

    oh, "they" don't?

    LOL!
