The workers and employers contribute to the Social Security Trust Fund (SSTF) via the FICA. The legislators borrow money from the SSTF by issuing T-Bonds and use the money to pay for items that should be procured from the General Fund. When the Republican legislators cite our national debt as $14 Trillion, they include the money owed to the SSTF. When President Obama said, the other day, that Social Security checks are in danger of not being mailed on August 2, the Republican Legislators scoffed at the idea and called the President's statement a scare tactic.

Americans are facing so many issues this year it is difficult to know where to begin, and Congress is not listening. Banking institutions have failed the public good, Wall Street continues to hand out record bonuses, gas companies are fracking the rural landscape and leaving behind a legacy of neglect and abuse that will take decades to repair. Environmentalists have been marched to jail for trying to save our national treasures while military personnel are sentenced to years in prison for exposing war crimes committed in our name.
Check out this rant from Eric Erickson on Red State, particularly the 5th paragraph. It's directed to the House Republicans, enjoingin them to "hang tough" on the debt ceiling fiasco they've created. Translated: It's okay if the country/world slide into a depresssion if we default, because Obama will be blamed, not the Repubs. Incredible! http://www.redstate.com/erick/2011/07/15/dear-house-republicans-this-is-your-time-for-choosing/
The Kryder Estate will now demonstrate why so much debt is DUE on 8/2/2011 because it has been pyramided upon stolen and concealed assets in a pool in which the Kryder Estate circulates under the auspices of G.H. Walker & Company, MO.
Imagination, resolve, balls and brains constitute desirable characteristics clearly absent in the makeup of the “free world’s leader.” Suppose things were different, that Obama had each in abundance, he might act to:
If it means finally purging the Republican Party from America - by all means DEFAULT! Default like the Wind!
but alas, we must sit throught the "see, I fought for you" show being put on
Despite the concerns of friends, family, and acquaintances, I have been living happily and successfully in Mexico for more than seven years.
This, for me, has been a most agreeable solution to a difficult retirement problem.
education is known to solve the natural issues of stupidity. The last gasp of american theocracy may be at hand. Ever notice that religion is just mankind stealing Gods importance for itself? Fukushima nuclear incident is an eleven, Sex beyond the act of procreation is self worth exampled through another human's actions. Homosexuality is just a very narrow perception self worth and has no other cause....but it is a brain perception issue so they ARE born that way Dont protest in the streets when the time comes. They have been conditioning police forces to shoot fellow americans.
That's right, the Big Eight - O! This was posted on a Rightie website- - "One News Now". Elijah Friedeman, a young and very moist behind his ears "writer" has a lotta learning to do about getting up there. He's banking his idea (LOL) on the basis that most of us gray-hairs are comfortably moving into our seventies. He's forgetting something. D'ya suppose it has to do with the fact that in our seventies, we're not working BECAUSE WE HAVE TO? Well, that's one consideration.
I stoped dreaming 3 years ago when the economy started falling apart. 2008 . The year I lost my mother. I wish this was all a bad dream. We must work together, or we will fail as country. I still keep pinching myself thinking this can not happen in America. But yes it has. I'm not proud of our leaders fighting all the time. Both so one sided that you do not know who to belive. Please prove me wrong America . Please.
Here's the sign I made for the last Anti-War march in Hollywood
