Told to "lean forward" then BAM!
\"UP YOURS"/ says Obama!
Dimocrats been Flim-Flammed, Hood-Winked and bent over over yet again!
Some 70 years ago, politicians in Washington decided that they needed to take charge of our retirement savings. They levied a mandatory payroll tax to establish a Social Security fund that would pay workers after they retired. This was to keep old people from the indignity of eating cat food.
This worked just fine for about 30 years. In fact, it was so financially successful that politicians — closely related to common bank robbers — decided that they wanted a more hands-on approach to spending all of this free money flowing in. So, in 1968, President Johnson and Congress jointly started raiding your retirement account.
No longer would workers’ payroll taxes be spent only on retirements. Instead, politicians could spend your retirement savings on all their more pressing priorities such as political favors, boondoggles and government buildings. Never mind that if an evil Wall Street tycoon did this, he would go directly to jail.
So here were are, another 40 years of reckless spending later. The amount of money coming in from payroll taxes is now eclipsed by the amount that goes out in payments to retirees. This Ponzi scheme is, shall we say, underwater, and the sanest people involved are calling for Social Security “reform.”
This would be like if you had a bank and robbers walked in every day for 40 years and stole everything customers had deposited. Then, after 40 years, people come in to withdraw their money only to find that all their deposits for the past 40 years have vanished. The only money left to be withdrawn is that which was deposited that day.
Stunned, broke and perplexed, you walk out onto the sidewalk and standing there is one of the bank robbers. He is holding a picket sign calling for “bank withdrawal reform” and talking about how people should start depositing more money and how they just need to learn to withdraw less.
What is really scary is that this guy standing on the street is the most honest of the bunch. At least he says he has given up his days as a bank robber.
So it is today with the Social Security reformers in the Republican Party. Still, it is worth asking,“Well, how about federal government reform? Or thieving politician reform? Or, stop stealing our money reform?”
Although it is a wee bit apparent that Mr. Obama suddenly realizes that Social Security is faltering as a federal government Ponzi scheme, there is no evidence that he is ready to give up the big-spending, high-rolling ways of a bank robber. On the contrary: A stunning report from The Hill newspaper last week suggests he aims to take the thieving to yet another level.
As Dimocrats hide and watch with eyes wide SHUT, watch and see what Oblamer does!

I'm just glad the US is not a Repub world were only the rich could survive. Under a Repub world there would be NO Social Security NO Medicare No nothing. In a Repub world if a person had money for health care they would be treated if not they would die. Repubs want a third world nation of the elites and the peasants.
#93112 Apr 10, 2013
And sodolibs want a world where everyone takes from everyone else and everyone is gay and working is a waste of time. You libotards are getting just exactly what you asked for, a traitor in the w.h., now he is coming after YOU, LOLOL, please, again tell us just how much you admire him, baaaaaaaaaa
#93113 Apr 10, 2013
Too bad you put your hopes in a system designed to fail. Too bad you put your hopes in a president that has a demonstrated track record of lying to his constituents. Too bad social security is not only being raided but being reduced. Too bad medicare is being cut. The only thing we 'fright wingers' can say is baaaaaaaaaaaaa.
#93114 Apr 10, 2013
Hey libs, oblamers sequestration has made our military incapable of responding to immediate threats. Did you hear that 1/3 of all Air Force flights have to be stopped? Wow, we should have put that money into social programs for lazy incompetent low intellect voters. baaaaaaaaa, but you anti-American libs never appreciated or respected the military anyway. Now N. Korea is shaking in its boots. baaaaaaaaaa
#93115 Apr 10, 2013
This is just too funny. In a dem world you are the peasant. LOLOL,
The U.S. economy will not be fixed until social security is disolved. Now oblamer just might get more support from the repubs with his current proposals - cut social security. Do you know how to spell baaaaaaaa?
#93117 Apr 10, 2013
One more then I'll go take a nap.
Hey libs, you are ingrateful. You should be appreciative to your oblamer in chief for not submitting a budget for the past 4 years (as he is required to). His first budget as president and it cuts social security, medicaide. He is sooo good at what he does he even cut the military without a budget. Can you just imagine what your s.s. checks would look like had he submitted a budget in his first year and did not have to worry about votes.
ROTFL at this one. Obamas first budget and he is attacking the very sheeple that put him in there. Now his own sheeple are protesting. Even the non-relevant UAW are upset.
Pay no attention to the posting at the bottom of this message. It is from Fox news so it must be a lie.

All Republicans want is to mend the safety need Dimocrats have been shredding for decades!
I do not support "doing away" with Social Security! Neither do other Republicans, that's a misrepresentation at the very LEAST!
If it isn't fixed and "locked away" so politicians cannot continue to raid it is done, following talking points will not fix the problem, ignoring the reality will not make it go away!
Calling Republicans names will not secure Social Security!
Allowing more illegals to draw SSI sure as hell won't help save the safety net!

The United States beat the Nazis and Japs in less than 4 years.
Plus we did not waste Trillions and Trillions of dollars occupying their countries.
It was shameful and disgraceful that Bush and Cheney did not raise taxes to pay for two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Iraq/Military-Industrial Complex/The Ruling Class
Why We Fight
We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. Today the real test of power is not capacity to make war but capacity to prevent it. The guns and the bombs, the rockets and the warships, are all symbols of human failure. History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap.

For 8 years Bush and Cheney did nothing to bring back Glass/Steagall so Wall Street cannot steal again from average Americans.
Obama is also guilty and so is Clinton.
Government Bailouts: A U.S. Tradition Dating to Hamilton
SEPTEMBER 20, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/ygk788s
The bubble pops. Lenders freeze. Depositors lose faith. Panic spreads. And the government steps in because nobody else will.
Today it is Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke putting together the rescue package for a financial system rocked by falling home prices and a wave of defaults on subprime mortgages.
But a short walk through U.S. history demonstrates the point made by Alex J. Pollock of the American Enterprise Institute: "If you would like an empirical law of government behavior, it is that in a panic or threatened financial collapse, governments intervene -- every government, every party, every country, every time."
John McCain’s friend Fred Dalton Thompson : enabled S & L crisis of '80s
Please spread the word....this is not the type of man we want as President.
In 1975, Thompson began his eighteen year engagement as a lobbyist in Washington, D.C., eventually representing clients including Westinghouse, General Electric (the current corporate owner of the NBC Universal-NBC television network), Westinghouse used to own CBS TV and the Tennessee Savings and Loan League
By 1982, Thompson worked the U.S. Congress membership as a lobbyist for passage of the Savings and Loan deregulation legislation desired by the Tennessee Savings and Loan League --- in this case, federal deregulation legislation allowing for additional government support of ailing S&Ls; giving U.S. thrifts the freedom to invest in potentially more profitable, but riskier, ventures; and eliminating interest-rate ceilings on new accounts to increase S&Ls' competitiveness.
Enacted into law during in September 1982, the Senate bill pushed by Thompson was incorporated into the Garn - St Germain Depository Institutions Act of 1982.
The Garn - St Germain Depository Institutions Act of 1982 is widely credited with having laid the groundwork for the U.S. Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s
The savings and loans crashes of the 1980s, themselves directly the result of Reagan’s deregulation of the banking industry, is more interesting because of how it reflects the rapacious nature of unbridled capitalism than of Neil Bush himself. Who by the way, is now embroiled in another scam with his latest venture, educational software, Ignite
(turnover $20 million, much of it from educational subsidies obtained in the state of Florida ,where,‘coincidentally’ of course, his bro Jeb Bush, was governor).
