We are not obligated to pay you Social Security or Medicare. You will see when you get there. It is not a debt like money borrowed from China is. Congress borrowed every dime of SS and Fica that was not paid out in every year since the beginning and they do not have to pay it back. Although, at the moment, the lock box is being emptied whether they like it or not. Maybe when it is empty empty, we can set SS on a pay as you go including all surplus. We would not be in this mess if Congress had not wasted Social Security funds on everything they wanted to.

Supreme court in the early 60's I can't think of the case now essentially stated that we have no 'right' to that money that has been extracted at gunpoint. This is why I hate calling it a 'Ponzi scheme' Charles (IIrc) Ponzi never had guns to enforce his scheme.

Ken, you are wrong. It wasn't until the funds of SS was removed from SS and put into the general fund (SS was chugging along quite nicely until that time). Then later another political lie came about when they (the Pols) said they were putting the funds into a lock box and they could only "borrow" the money, leaving IOU's that aren't worth used TP. JMO

When he first wrote this recycled piece (April 2012) I asked him why he did not also condemn the person who stole the emails from the East Anglia. As the NYT link shows, there was condemnation of Gleick's action from those on all sides of the political spectrum.- Caught Red-Handed on Climate Change

Dear Comrade Mikey,

Why not admit that instead of Gleick making a "serious ethical error," that he committed a crime? Stealing is always wrong.

The irony is that you ask me...
