    A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds that a majority of retirees say they expect their current benefits to be cut, a dramatic increase in the number who hold that view. And a record six of 10 non-retirees predict Social Security won't be able to pay them benefits when they stop working.

    Skepticism is highest among the youngest workers: Three-fourths of those 18 to 34 don't expect to get a Social Security check when they retire....
    This is what is called a self fulfilling prophecy. With humans, if you tell a child they are worthless and no good and bad to the core often enough, eventually they will believe it and act accordingly. then you can point your finger at them and say "see, I told you so".

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

This comes from the far right in the form of conservatives and libertarians who have bought an ideology, know that they cannot sell this ideology to a majority of Americans, so instead intend to impose it on the masses.

    Some of this is being done through conservative judicial activism as evidenced by the Citizens United decision. Some of it is being done via Republican gains in off year elections when the voting turnout is down. Some of it merely right wing propaganda to get people to vote against their own self interests because they have drunk the kook-aid.

    I am glad you recognize what is happening and stand against it.
    Voting for my interests is not in social security You have no idea what you are talking about because YOU my friend have been blinded.

    And great job insulting. You should go off and lecture yourself.
    What the heck is this, what exactly is the insult that got you so enraged. Now you can go f*** yourself. I said nothing to you and not much to him based on what I read on this site daily.

    If you can't attack the message attack the messanger. Cheap debating trick.

    If this was at the U.N. I would ask for an english translation of this gibberish.

    Id like to know where CPwill got that gallup poll from..because its not on gallups site, unless I missed it

    Gallup.Com - Daily News, Polls, Public Opinion on Government, Politics, Economics, Management

    Heres an interesting poll, most americans back the unions against the governors that are attacking them

    More Americans Back Unions Than Governors in State Disputes

    Shortly all the opinion polls are going to change stay tuned...the callousness of the teaparty brats is starting to come in loud and clear to alot of people...the more they whine the more people are turned off....keep that in mind Turtle and CPwill

    Did you even read the post that the other poster objected to, or just react without reading the post like he did.
