Yes it is. We pay for it with payroll deductions. Read up!

I don't believe your drivel. You are a gibberish based lab grown spore that like a viral parasite hooked on the something for nothing agenda that started to spread when America was still a rising nation. We are in decline now. so how about cutting corruption, stealing, graft and the such. Or are there to many progressives that are into that...Saul Alinsky lives!

Welllll... one doesn't have to be a conspiracy nut to be a survivalist.

I also have a similar setup like sheeple does. Lots of food stored, seeds, land to grow it on, water, weapons and ammo...etc, enough to feed all of my family and extended family. All my rental properties have gardens to provide food for those that I rent to, I have my landscapers go by to make sure the gardens are well kept.

Then again my reasons a much different than Sheeple's I think. I live in Hawaii and all a person needs to do is google it in map mode to see it's a rock in the middle of the ocean 2,400 miles from the nearest significant land mass.

Food for the population is shipped in on boats, those boats run on oil as do all the power plants on all the islands, all it would take is war in the middle east or some other crisis to shut down the flow of oil and spike the prices world wide and thus the prices for all items and power in Hawaii.

The state has about a month's worth of food on the island without another transport ship. After that we are on our own. It's not outside of the realm of possibility that our food and power supply would be put in danger as well as parts of the water system.

Now I am not as pessimistic as sheeple. I am pretty faithful that the spirit of Aloha that we have in the islands will pull through in such a tough time. It held true during Hurricane Iniki when the island of Kauai was cut off for a little over a month and everyone on that island pulled together, shared their resources, stores gave their food away, even the army corp of engnieers that seen Hurricane Andrew a few weeks before was shocked at how little violence and chaos was on the island. But it doesn't hurt to be safe.

It's a big movement in Hawaii to get the old plantation farmland open to food production instead of just sitting empty and unused to provide a better buffer to our over dependency on the importing of food. To expand alternative energy sources to cut the cost of energy which is sitting at 35 cent per kh down from a high of 55 cents last year.

It doesn't hurt to be prepared for bad situations if someone has the means to do so. I do it because I live in the most geographically isolated spot on the planet and I want to make sure my family and community has resources. Sheeple does it because they think that society is going to collapse, in either case it's not hurting anyone and in the end could only help others.

Yeah, that is what made the 2010 election to powerful for the Republicans. It wasn't so much the house seats that they won, it was all the state seats that they won. Have full control of state governments during a cencus year is powerful. They basic insure a right-wing leaning house for another 10 years.

People pay taxes for all sorts of things.
Yes, we do.
Did you earn the roads & bridges your gas tax dollars paid for?
No. Clearly you do not understand FICA. It is a very specific levy - money earned by the contributor is given SOLELY to a program that will insure that funds will be available to him or her later.

It is not an income tax.
Did you earn the vaccine your tax dollars helped develop?
Were you dropped on your head as an infant?
CURRENT social security taxes go to pay CURRENT recipients, just like CURRENT gas taxes go to pay for CURRENT road & bridge projects.
You are incorrect. Besides your lack of grasp regarding FICA, taxes compiled for infrastructure today are not necessarily spent today. Often projects are funded BUT NOT PAID FOR until years after.
You don't have a private social security account.
No kidding. I never implied otherwise.
All you have to do to start collecting is turn 62.
No, you can collect Social Security for a number of other reasons prior to that age.
CURRENT workers at that time will pay for you social security; you're NOT withdrawing from your account.
NO, YOU DID NOT EARN IT.
Your foolishness is truly astounding. Not once did I state that the contributor gets back ALL he/she has had deducted. He/She receives a portion based upon the FICA schedule. He/She earned the salary to contribute for his/her future. It is akin to an investment.

You seem bent out of shape by that fact. Facts do that to you.

If you think $20 or $30 or $40 trillion in debt is sustainable, then you're the only one.
It is clear you have a need to state things that are not fact. Please show us where I stated that.

I have food, water, & supplies enough to last for 10 years, and seed, animals, & equipment to be self sufficient after that. And of course I have more than enough weapons & ammunition to defend it all.
That is farcical. Thank you for illustrating your insecurity.

And I find it incredibly sad that the millions of fat lazy spoiled sheeple are driving our country right to the edge of the cliff, and now seem ready to stomp on the gas.
So sad...
No, what is truly sad is your hatred for America.

I remind you of what actually happened to the Dixie Chicks. Their lead singer dared to speak her mind while performing a concert in Great Britain. In the days leading up to Iraq II, they performed a tour in Europe - nations that greater experience with war and were profoundly reluctant to engage in another. Natalie Maynes used her Constitutionally protected right to say, "Just so you know, we're on the good side with y'all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we're ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas."

How dare she?

So...what happened? The Righteous Right reacted with such hatred that few parallels exist. Dixie Chicks music was burned, crushed by bulldozers and ripped from store shelves. Businesses that dared sell them saw protests until they complied. Radio stations fired DJS for playing their music. The Republicant militia issued death threats to the band and held rallies with some hysterical placards present.

"He's OUR President. If you don't like it, MOVE!"

"The Dixie Chicks will burn in Hell!"

"Christians against Chicks!"

and my favorite...
"Free Speech is un-American when we're fighting terror!"

Maybe it's time to follow the message you embraced a decade ago...if you don't like living here, our policies and administration, leave. Your whining and disparaging merely aid our enemies.

The sheeple often feel that way when they hear the truth.

800,000+ NON-ESSENTIAL govt employees, who also recently got a 2 week PAID VACATION all at taxpayer expense.

They're categorized as non-essential for a reason. Especially when we're still adding about $1 TRILLION in debt every year.

Non-essential is a term for those not required to maintain national security, people like you.

By the way, still waiting for that NEC.

Pension checks are processed primarily by computer.

Pensions are earned- I never claimed otherwise; some more so than others.

No, the govt employee making on average $75k/yr to be a bean-counter behind a desk most definitely NOT worth that much.

I support paying all govt workers- including elected politicians- the average US wage of about $30k.

To give the devil his due...They executed a ruthless and relentless powerplay. It was admirable in a sense.
So it will take a series of wins on both the national and state levels in order to negate that advantage, Or a rout by the GOP estabblishment, not certain.

s/b "You average 8,000 posts a year and still have time to stock your paranoia bunker? "

It won't be nearly as pointed but is now far more accurate.

In an ad populum sweep, has anyone ever watched the "Doomsday Preppers" or "Bunker Babies" documentaries. You can almost hear the banjos playing while they mock that week's Goober and Ma' in each episode. It's like Jerry Springer for the Righteous Right.
