This will change when you get old: "But good intentions have never put a roof over my head and food on my table" You will get SS, which WILL do these things.

Um, but we've already spent that money. That's already been done.

You still don't know, or just ignore, the fact that a lot of us (those who are working, anyway) have and still are contributing to SS and Medicare. If you earned money, and put some of it into an account for your retirelment days, and then the government decided to start using your retirement account to give to others who do not have a retirement account, would that bother you in any way?

I paid into SS for more than 45 years and I am still paying; but I will probably never get out of it what I have paid into it. Would have done better investing it on my own and able to leave the family something. Now I the sound and feel good liberals telling me I have nothing to worry about. Who are they trying to kid?

Here are twelve comical but true resolutions that every liberal should make for 2013:

1.) Resolve to spend time with gun-owners. I have a liberal friend who says she would rather be in the same room as a cobra snake than a gun, even an unloaded gun. Guns really, really scare her. But guns don’t kill. People kill. Whether the tool is a gun or a knife or a baseball bat, unconscionable people kill, not the inanimate objects in their hands.

Banning all tools and machinery will not turn bad people into good people. Doing so would make us more...
