What people who didn't pay into the system?
Widows of deceased husbands who did pay?
The children? Like Paul Ryan did when he was
about 16 years old?

Disabled workers?

Who else?

Leave it to you to come up with a brilliant reply like that. There are liberal things that are good and there are also conservative things that that are good. The problem is the parties both suck. And what makes the parties suck is people who will blindly follow them, questioning nothing and repeating everything. Sound like anyone you know?

You have never worked and never will. You pay NO taxes, you live off of a man because your IQ is far too low for you to be able to ever work, and you come in here and go on and on with your low IQ crazy talk posts about other people not working, which is YOU, and about others who don't working wanting SS, which is YOU.

<quoted text>What a hoot you are General. Maybe if you will learn to read you will know Social Security and Medicare are self funded.......when the government isn't stealing from them.
It is NOT self-funded. SS and Medicare have $122 TRILLION in unfunded liabilities. Look it up on the National Debt Clock. YOu want $122 TRILLION of socialism, of government pensions and government health care and you are supposed to be the people who hate socialism. I challenge you to find one person in the U.S. who claims they hate socialism who is not at all on the government. You can't do it. The only people who lie that they hate socialism are the old people who are on socialism.

One minute you people say you hate socialism, you hate government health care and you want spending cuts. The next minute you all talk out of the other side of your mouths and say give you all $122 trillion more than you paid into SS and Medicare.

One minute you all talk big telling people to save their own money and to make it ond their own retired, the next minute you all admit you did not save one cent and you all need the government to pay you to live retired and to give you health care for as long as you live retired. Which is it? Do you hate socialism and you are giving up the $122 trillion in unpaid for promises in socialist security and in government Medicare, or, are you all demanding the $122 trillion more than you paid into SS and Medicare, demanding about $3 trillion a year in social programs from the government? Which one is it? ARe you socialists or not?

And, this idea that No. Korea that is back in the 1940s, that has no heat in it's buildings, no food, they make up threats so that we send them some more food, this idea that we need to be in such fear of this and have a war with them, and that Iran, which can't figure out how to make gasoline to lob one rocket anywhere ever that we need to spend 1.3 trillion per year in military/defense spending to protect the old tea party folks from dirt poor undeveloped countries is nuts. If you want a big military empire and big huge entitlements, you are pro-socialism and you are anti Libertarian.

The Founding Fathers did not set up a military empire and $122 trillion of old age pensions and government health care for old people, and, if you love that stuff, you are not Libertarian, you are for empire, for socialism, and for big huge spending. But we are flat broke and our people have low IQs and are undereducated, so you can no longer be an empire. The empire is in collapse, and yet some folks want to go and have wars with No. Korea and with Iran. Really? You have to borrow the money from China for god's sake to have another war. Doesn't get any crazier than that.

this idea that the tea party wants to spend about $3 trillion a year on empire and on socialism, on SS and Medicare but they somehow hate big spending, well, they need to shove a sock in it and go away already.

No wonder they loved Palin. Stupid is in, being an idiot is in fashion in the U.S. It's like "Palin is dumb, yeah, yeah, it's so cool to be stupid. That's so great. Look she's stupid like we are, yeah, yeah, we are stupid and we have stupid leaders now too. It's so great. Yahoo!!!

After people are on it for about two years, it is welfare to them. That's why the unfunded liabilities in SS and Medicare equal over $122 TRILLION dollars. That's the amount beyond what people paid in that the government promised to give the baby boomer generation.

The problem is that the baby boomers' payment went to the WWII generation who paid nothing into Medicare and they've been on Medicare for about 40 years now, and they paid one-half of one percent of low incomes in those days in SS and then collected SS for the last 40 years, so the government took the money the baby boomers were paying in and gave it to the World War II generation. So now the 80 million baby boomers would need $122 trillion more than they paid in in order for the government to give them the same level of SS and Medicare that the WWII generation got. It's a mathematical impossibility.

The real problem is the Tea Party is ONLY out to collect the $122 trillion in government benefits and they won't be honest and say they love socialism and ask for a big national sales tax to come up with that $122 trillion over time, so instead they use the Fox stuff about they hate socialism. They make it up that they are so entitled to collect from the government and that no one else is, and so anyone else on the government is socialism and evil, but they are somehow so entitled and it's different for them to do it.

It's actually a big tell in how people think and behave. It shows a lot about the psychology of people. People ONLY care about greed for money and about money for themselves, and they make up any crazy thing to try and get money and you see it - they deny reality, they are asking for stuff that is socialism and that is where most of the federal budget goes, but they have blind greed for money so they convince themselves that they are the most entitled and the biggest patriots. Everyone does it. But the truth is it has more to do with showing how little and how greedy people are than it has to do with anything real or political. They are super selfish and super greedy for money to the point that they just make up any story about it.

I love the part where all the news channels say like 20 times every day for years now that SS and Medicare is where all the money is going, and how for 5 years I keep posting that SS and Medicare have $122 trillion of debt, and yet you can't get one person to admit any of it. It's greed psychology where people deny, deny, deny until they are forced to stop doing so. This is what greed does to people. It makes then incapable of being honest and makes them crazy. Their thinking and behaviors on this issue is the definition of insanity.

The other thing is it shows how the only thing Americans care about is consumerism, buying stuff and spending money on themselves, yet at the same time, they are dumber than ever and less educated and no longer read books. So they have NO real self-esteem and will forever keep trying to get self-esteem from buying stuff and that's why they would rather demand money they do not really need and run up $122 trillion more debt on the country so they can buy stuff they don't really need rather than be honest about it being welfare after two years and care about not bankrupting the country and be willing to go and do constructive things that would give them real self-esteem. It shows that human nature is always take the easiest path, just buy stuff, be selfish and money is their god. that's how we got here.

The idea is - this is easy, I can buy stuff, I want money, I want stuff, this is easier than learning or doing, I can simply consume.

But the idea that this makes people patriotic or some big thing - well, that's a big, huge stretch. If you want to bankrupt your country so you can buy stuff you don't need, you are not really patriotic.
