No, an IDIOT would depend on Wall St. to take care of his money, then lose it the next time the Wall St. Casino breaks its own bank. I trust government to make sure I get the money I've paid into SS, and like everyone in the nation every year up until now, I'll get my money.
Not a question of "the government taking care of me," but then you guys aren't exactly honest about that, are you?:)
Obviously your government education has failed you.
I do not lose money on Wall Street.
Liberals don't understand simple finances and can't understand shorting or hedging or cost averaging and thus make money no matter how the market goes. Ask your cheerleader (don't take my money but tax everyone elses) Warren Buffet.
You must be a hide the money in a matress kinda guy and when the house burns down scream to Uncle Sam for your handout!

Since the government handles the program, that's essentially true. So what?

One person's Wall St. experience doesn't mean a thing. MANY people have lost money on Wall St. down through the years, many have in fact been ruined, lost everything. Especially in a serious recession such as the one we just had.

Only an idiot would say something as foolish as "liberals don't understand simple finances." When I hear stuff like that I know I'm listening to a fool. Your characterizations of me, totally wrong as they are, confirm that POV.

Dismissed.

When College professors teach about economics when they have no dogs in the fight is hilarious. Like they know how it works? Really?!
Liberals believe in taxing our way to prosperity. That alone speaks volumes of their ignorance.
Prosperity can only be produced when more revenue is put into the economy. Not when it is taken out. Most folks are going to see their next paychecks drop at a minimum of 2.3%. Not to mention the responsible folks that currently pay for health insurance. These costs have gone up as well begining this month. Unemployment "unexpectantly" rose again.
So tell me oh wise one; how will the economy grow with this decrease in revenue stream?
Dispelled.

Ask a liberal a simple "yes of no" question, they cannot or most likely will not, answer it.

Your philosophizing is, as usual, more of the very hot air I was mentioning. Mere repetitious humbug:

"Racists are those who call others racist..." "The ignorant are those who call others ignorant..."

LOL (shaking head in disbelief)

No facts or debate on your part, just bloviation and your own worthless opinions. What is there to argue about?

"Blah, blah, blah..etc." WAS a retort, in fact. Look up the word...:)

Careful, your ignorance is showing. Can you ever respond to anything without an insult or attack?

Stop lying about me, attempting to smear me, misrepresenting my comments, and in general acting like a fool, and I'll see what I can do.

Why are righties like you so whiny about getting your own stuff thrown back at you? Do you think we won't treat you as you treat us?:)

I REALLY hope Joey Biden is right and O'Bama tries to use a pen to circumvent the Constitution and curtail our 2nd Amendment Rights.

He'll be out of office so fast FEMA will have to respond to the whirlwind created by his departure.

You haven't thrown anything back at me, no worries, except it has been proven that you cannot answer a simple yes or no question.

If I were you, I'd be worried that I DID NOT have a bundle invested on Wall Street. Stocks have recovered back to pre-recession levels. Salaries/wages, real estate...hardly so.

Yes, but "Duh professor" buys high all at once and sells everything the day it drops low, and it's "Wall Street's" fault for cheating him.

Betting against the stock market is betting against America, and that's been a losers bet for 200+ years and running. It is possible that could change, and if it does then EVERYTHING will be in the crapper (except for maybe gold)--bonds, cash, real estate, job market, you name it. It would be gam,e over.

Some idiots really are better off having the government's ponzi scheme around. In the future SS will be means tested, and broke fools like him will still be given their tiny SS checks so they don't sleep in the gutter.
