Who else is to blame for the debt? The people who aren't born yet who will have to pay for it? Who else is responsible for your lack of self control? You people voted to loot from future generations. Really, whose fault is it?

You think being old allows you to borrow money and make other people pay it? BS. I pay my Social Security taxes with every pay check for those old people and guess what? I'm never going to see a dime of it. Don't forget the $12 trillion debt you're leaving for your grandkids to pick up. How can you people sleep at night?
Those old people have been paying into SS most of their lives.

SS is stumbling not due to them, but due to our lawmakers mishandling of the program.

Get your facts straight before you go pointing fingers.

Sometimes, I am astounded by the young people who forget that one day, if they're lucky to live that long, they too will be seniors.

And I'm not even a senior yet.

Torrance must be crazy. The Del Amo Fashion Center has turned ghetto and now Torrance wants to built a senior citizen housing for both aged and AL patients? Another question, will this housing become ghetto themed as well ? Another reason why it's time to get out of this city.
I guess the big plans to redevelop Del Amo Mall have been postponed because of the economy.

If escaping the bad economy is what you are trying to do by leaving the City of Torrance, GOOD LUCK! Let me hold the door for you!

If by your standards the Del Amo Mall is a ghetto, just maybe your standards are set a might high. And please don't even try to insinuate that seniors cause blight or ghetto themed areas as you are barking up the wrong tree. Before you embarrass yourself further, check out other senior living housing facilities and you will see that they are managed very well.

And again, I am ready to hold the door for you.

I do plan on being old, but I don't plan on stealing from future generations to subsidize my standard of living. I'll leave that to you leeches.

Then I suggest you stop living in the US.

EVERYTHING here is predicated on future taxes.

BTW, I don't collect SS, or any other form of social service, yet I still see a need for it.

SS would be a continued success IF it were handled properly by the various administrations.

Stoping blaming the recipients and start making a difference by actually LEARNING how SS works, how it's been abused...then maybe you can help make a difference by your vote.

You're old enough to vote, right?

I find it very interesting that you chose to comment on a subject that you obviously know little or nothing about.

I do collect SS. The money that I collect, comes from a SS Account that I PAID INTO during my forty-five years of working for a living. Now that I am retired, I draw money from "MY" SS Account that I am very much entitled too.

Now that I draw money from an account that I paid into for 45 yrs., all of a sudden, I am a leech????

You are not very well informed sir, but I will tell you that you ARE very funny!!!!

I suggest you go back and read the postings...you're mixing mine with someone elses as I never called anyone a leech, nor do I think most SS recipients are leeches (some are, as they collect when they've never contributed a dime).

However, you are not collecting from the account YOU paid into, that's not how the SS system works. Think of it as a pyramid program, sadly, one that has been mismanaged.

This conversation has really taken a wierd turn since I last checked in. It should be about the ridiculous development that they are trying to put in that will not help Torrance in any way. Lets get back to the real topic.

The seniors of today helped to make the South Bay what it is today. Yet, that fact seems to escape the stingy minds of the ney sayers regarding the building of the senior buildings.
What is the mind set of an individual who hates the thought of helping to provide housing for our elderly who were for the most part a resident of the South Bay way way before most of the rest of us.
These ney sayers remind me of the old Eskimo tradition of placing an elderly person on a block of ice where they would freeze to death as they were no longer a productive member of society therefore preventing them from having to care for them.
I can't wait for the time to come when these thoughtless and num minded ney sayers are elderly and in need of a different kind of consideration for themselves than what they are used to be needing. I guess that then the shoe will be on the other foot, and how I will laugh.
By that time, you will be long gone....duh.

What account? No one has a Social Security account. Money is stolen from people working today and given to some old person so to pay for green fees and/or luxury condo dues.

Being forced to pay into a pyramid scheme for a long times doesn't give you the right to steal from anyone. It's time to close it and Medicare down.

You need to consider a long long vacation on a deserted island somewhere, anywhere, and hopefully one without cell phone towers.

You suggested in your post that I go back and read the postings as I had made a mistake and mixed your postings with another. Well, right after I clicked on "POST COMMENT", I realized my mistake. I called the DB and was told that they could not correct it for me.

I then posted my apology to you and had hoped that you would see it. But you didn't follow your own advice. So, once again I will try to apologize to you sir. I am sorry, I am sure that you are not a leech. The other guy IS.!!!

There's got to be some compensation for impotency.

Norm La Caze is just a greedy SOB, who enjoys getting rich at the expense of other peoples' lives, myself included. He has terrorized many store and property owners in Torrance. Recently I found out that he had forced out a Japanese restaurants in Torrance. In addition to forcing them out, he took all their personal assets. He apparently struck a dirty deal with Mr. Takahara, who is well known in the Japanese community as a notorious crook.

He doesn't care about the seniors nor any human being. Please don't take advantage of the elderly and pretend to care when all you see is profit.
