    ... it's a greased slippery slope to "donating" Social Security to "investment bankers" who will (for a hefty "fee") invest our retirement money at Casino Wall Street because the US government can't afford to pay back the loans they took out of the Soc Sec Trust fund to finance their illegal and unconstitutional wars..., and Casino Wall Street is where the House Rules for Gambling apply:  The House Always Wins:  Always!

    That means what WE lose, THEY gain (with interest)..., and ship OUR MONEY to offshore accounts in the Caymans or elsewhere.

    Can you say E-n-r-o-n...?

    Congress Critters and executives for de-regulated banks (Gee, Thanks a helluva lot, Bill Clinton for signing Gramm-Leach-Bliley!) think we've forgotten about Enron and the other companies that held/hold retirement or 401k funds - and others who still do and can't pay retirees because they are going bankrupt (except for the bonuses they pay executives).

    Not ALL Baby Boomers are senile, and we have longer memories than the arseholes in Congress.

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
