    What are you talking about? SS should be paid out of its own fund, not the General Fund. SS has been part of the General Fund since LBJ put it there so that the govt. could get their hands on the money to pay for the Vietnam War and the Great Society. SS has no business in the general fund.

    oh there are lots of things I care about-such as say the state of the US table tennis team in world competition or whether Brady Ellision is going to be our first individual medalist in 12 years in the next olympic archery competition but this board really isn't the place to discuss that

    But the money I put in was spent. Do I get a refund?

    but your solution is to jack up taxes on people who already pay too much

    LOL, take that up with your Congressional Representatives. What do you think your money was spent on?

    No, I have other solutions and have stated them many times. None of them involve increasing taxes.

    Lets see

    Canada was involved in WW1 from the beginning, WW2 from the beginning, rather then being a ***** and waiting untill the tide was turned. We lost thousands of men before the US got off it but and decided to do anything

    Unlike the US, Canada does not support dictators, overthrow democracies, and claim to be a supporter of democracy. We actually support democracy. Not just lip service like a cheap hooker.

    I try not thinking about it. It keeps me up.

    Im not opposed to your idea but what do with the people who rely upon these entitlements because they were promised they would get them. They will most likely vote out anyone who takes it away and put in place someone who will put it back.

    Sorry, but you're going to have to do better than that.
    Where did I say government?

    The government gets its money from the Fed or have you not heard of QE
