RE: OLD BASTARDS!

Aging gracefully like forgotten swine on a hook in Italy--you can scrape the green and the salt off the outside but it's still rotten to the bone--he deins to spread his pearls like bird droppings, leaving us all just a little more aware of what happens when you park your car under a mulberry tree full of crows.

I can't wait to read the 3,790th post: probably something equally enlightening like, "how I spent the weekend scratching myself," and, "do you think MB leather causes pimples on your bottom when you drive naked? I probably should have asked earlier before I did that."

But some think you're a nice guy, and so say I too. I know you're evil but that's my compassion for you. [xx(]

Hmmmm.

If you and Mac are compassionate conservatives, I hope never to meet the non compassionate kind!

RE: What is the point then?

I have NEVER stated that these programs should not exist. Eliminating the fraud that is rampant in the system would allow the intended design of the SS system to benefit those who need it even more. I also disagree with your assertion that there is only a "fringe" of abuse in the system. I have personally seen way more than a fringe of abuse. It is a regular occurance in my neck of the woods.

To throw more than just scripture around, I also belive as Martin Luther King stated that man should be judged by the quilatiy of his character (paraphrased). I see good people struggling to do the best they can, but I also watch the system getting sucked dry by "parasites" with no regulation by those who write the checks. The system sucks, but it's the best one we have.

tcp Here, over and out!

You were wondering about my 3790th post?
In deference to your superior intellect and compassion for mankind, I am compelled to make one last attempt at making you happy.

This is the people's forum, it is what you make it, you get out of it what you care to bring to it.

Your post shows that my contributions were unequivocably useless.

I hereby ban myself from this site so as to not disturb your highness with my worthless rant.

There have been good times, thank you all for your help, which I have relied upon many times.

Farewell...

Andy,
Don't wonder, this is just theoritical. It will never happen [:(]

I think I could write a parallel Earth novel where the US in a parallel universe withdraws all of their troops from around the world and conspires with aliens to build space ships to take all citizens out of the US to another Earth-like planet where they live happily ever after until someone mentions Social Security and it all starts again.

RE: OT Robin Williams' Plan A little extreme but interesting

You're so right . . .

There will always be someone who will trump any kind of objective discussion with all of the usual demonizing, conotative, disinformative catchphrases, like:

"Are you a Nazi?

Is this 1930s Germany all over again?

Are you calling me a "parasite" after I fought my butt off for you in past wars?

I guess you want to shut down the VA hospitals next?

I know what you are: you just want to boil down the poor unfortunates among us into soup.

Hitler shared your desire: you want to get rid the world of the useless, non productive, non conformists and stregthen the economy by eliminating those left behind, the irreliguous, the fringes.

You want to get rid of democracy too. You want to be the dictator, you liberal-hating fascist."

A pocket will never be so deep there won't be plenty who want to pick it, and plenty more to help for a piece of the take. We are only a relative few years away from the next civil war: this time, it will be the young versus the old. Any hope to avoid it rests on the shoulders of the baby boomer generation. However, I think it is impossible for them to grapple with because the debate is too easily soured and the economic, cultural and societal wellsprings--that which is necessary to provide the center and balance to make tough decisions--have been polluted.
