Today bobbya posted something that I can agree with 100%. Why did he lock his blog? He would have enjoyed the support he would have gotten.
Why do Republicans want to privatize social security? So the democrats can't raid funds the workers and their employers sent to SS. Why do the democrats want to keep SS in the hands of the government? So they (democrats) will have money to buy more votes.
If all my SS payments were kept in a mutual fund, I would have retired a well-off man. As things now stand, I get just enough to keep me alive provided I use electricity only three days a week, eat every other day, walk across town to buy food, and never cool the house. Thanks, democrats.
