Hear this asshole. I had no choice, monies were taken from my pay and put into this system for more than 50 years. Monies are still being taken out.
SS does not support me. Without SS my our life style would change not at all. SS is walking around monies, beer money, fun money.
If you ever get to Spokane, let me know. I will treat you to an ice cold Kokanee Gold at Jack and Dan's. Maybe that would put a little lead in your pencil.

EasyEed is right in a sense; however, all Eed's SS payments were taxes that went immediately to fund benefits and do not guarantee Eed any future benefits.

Galt hopes that Jack and Dan's is within walking distance of EasyEed's house. Gotta watch the Gestapo checkpoints!

Oh then why isn't Manning a "hero" as well ? or Julian Assange for WikiLeaks. If we are handing out labels, lets not get discriminating about it. After all all three exposed things the Government did not want you to know about.
There is a difference between releasing national security information and exposing the existence of a program to spy on American citizens.

If Snowden released national security information (beyond the existence of the program), then he may be as guilty as Manning.

I think you hit the nail squarely on the head. The spying on the journalists and Congress was most likely part of that.

What did Satan say about a former presidential candidate who cheated on his wife while she was fighting breast cancer and had a child with his mistress which became news right before his wife died?

Did he mention anything about sitting presidents who use interns for sexual gratification while on the job and on the taxpayer's dime?

Or is Satan just another biased liberal?

Doesn't she have her own room in the president's private residence?

If not, she ought to. According to Bob Woodword, she's the last one to leave the president alone with his family every single night.

Opinion Weiner, Thompson and black voters
Why are white challengers outperforming an African-American candidate among blacks? So far, the spectacle that is Anthony Weiner’s return to political life has been analyzed and chronicled to an extent normally reserved for presidential candidates — or Kardashians.

Much of the coverage is not substantive, though Weiner is certainly attempting to get us to focus on policy rather than puns. But we may also be able to learn something deeper about New York and our most challenging issue — inequality — during this election, by noting how black voters and white voters have reacted differently to Weiner joining the race.

Consider this surprising fact: Weiner, a Jewish man who formerly represented a congressional district with a very small black population, led among black voters in one recent poll and finished second in another. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn — a white Irish-American — placed second and first in those same polls.

Meanwhile, eminently qualified African-American candidate William Thompson, the Democratic nominee for mayor just four years ago, ranked third in both polls.

The numbers are perplexing, to say the least. Part of the reason surely has to do with the celebritylike name recognition of both Weiner and Quinn; it is early in the cycle, when that matters most.

We are still mimicking the early part of 1929. There were wild market swings then too in late spring and summer. Reports are that major players are silently selling off large portions of their portfolio. Be careful out there.

The Tragic Fall of the White Race in America

Let’s not mince words. It’s hard being a white person in America. I hadn’t noticed this but that’s what everyone seems to say. So I was struck when a group of stories came together today in what seemed like a serendipitous way.

It starts with the news that among the people 5 years old and younger in America whites are now a minority. It’s worth noting that that’s a pretty small part of the population. And all it really means is that white people are no longer a bigger slice of the population than everyone else combined. But it does put the trajectory of American demographics and life in sharp relief. If you figure that it was a big, big deal that the percentage of the white vote was 72% in 2012 and had fallen from 88% in 1980, you can see that the fact that in 20 years that percentage, among young voters, will be 50/50, it’s actually a very big deal.

Then there was this story of Rep. Steve King (R-IA), well-known crazy person and tireless driver of TPM audience numbers, going on Twitter to complain that because of President Obama’s climate of lawlessness a group of “illegal aliens have just invaded my DC office.” TPM’s Perry Stein caught up with the horde of illegals/aka ‘Dreamers’ to get their side of the story here.

And then just after noon, we heard about the story of 11-year-old Sebastien De La Cruz, who sang the national anthem at Tuesday nights NBA Finals game and then got deluged by racist tweets telling him to go back to Mexico and that he’d probably just snuck into the country hours before and other good stuff. De La Cruz was born in San Antonio.

Good times, as they say.

But it’s brought home some of my own thoughts about the changing racial makeup of the country and the persistent or perhaps growing climate of white racial panic as white people face a future as only the biggest single group in the country with most of the wealth and power. Race has, obviously, always been a central part of American politics. Always. But we don’t have to go back to 1619 or 1863 or any other ancient date. Let’s just talk about the 1990s or really any other time up to the last few years. It’s not that any of this stuff is new. It’s that until pretty recently we had this stuff and on balance it was successful. That’s the key. And now, though it’s a very close run thing, it tends not to be successful. And by successful I mean in a purely electoral sense. Does it get you more votes than it looses you. And at a certain level that’s all that matters.

Republicans invested heavily in voter suppression for the 2012 cycle. And while it is very important to note that a big reason why it didn’t ‘work’ was that courts struck down a lot of the most egregious laws (and huge kudos to the myriad civil rights and voting rights lawyers who made that possible), it also didn’t work because the attempt itself massively energized the growing non-white electorate. So every time a little Mexican-American kid dares to sing the national anthem at a basketball game wearing a mariachi suit and freaks start telling him on Twitter to go back to Mexico, it’s gross and it’s a bummer, but you also realize that it’s probably marginalizing the white racist freakshow vote more than it’s empowering it. And when conservative backbenchers in the House say ‘pathway to citizenship’ over my dead body or despair of American culture, well, sure bring it to the next election and let’s see what happens. And the one after that.

The simple fact is that calculus has changed. There are now enough non-white people in America and just as critically enough whites who are either at least comfortable or even welcome being in a multiracial party and country, that the electoral calculus has changed. And that’s a really good thing.

Bush’s NSA Director: Obama Has Been More Transparent On Surveillance Than We Were
The man who served as the director of the National Security Agency under former President George W. Bush said Wednesday that President Barack Obama has been more transparent about top secret surveillance programs than his predecessor.
Gen. Michael Hayden, former NSA director, praised Obama for resuming those programs.
"We should just take a sense of satisfaction that what we were doing, once candidate Obama became President Obama, he saw that these were of great value and frankly, were being very carefully done," Hayden told CNN. "National security looks a little different from the Oval Office than it does from a hotel room in Iowa."
Hayden applauded Obama for making the details of the NSA's data collection available to members of Congress.
"Frankly, the Obama administration was more transparent about this effort than we were in the Bush administration," Hayden said. "I mean, they made this meta data collection activity available to all the members of Congress. Not just all the members of the intelligence committees."

Sean Hannity sure has changed his tune.
The rambunctious Fox News host on Monday lashed into the Obama administration over the revelations of widespread Internet and phone surveillance by the National Security Agency, warning that "anarchy and tyranny will follow."
But back in 2006, when a similar NSA spying scandal was unearthed during President George W. Bush's administration, Hannity wasn't so concerned. He came out as a staunch defender of the NSA then, saying it was "staggering to me we are even debating the use of these techniques in this country even at this time."
Media Matters put together a mashup of Hannity's comments, comparing his position then and now. Watch the whole video above.
