I talked to a TeaParty guy about the privatization of social security. He said, "Allowing young people to opt out of social security and investing that money in the stock market will be like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow when they reach their golden years."
Now, I asked that same Tea Party guy about having a 401k plan replace the pension plan for US military personnel.
Astonishingly, he said, "That would be cruel!, they do dangerous work."
What happened to that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow all my fellow conservatives and myself will ask.
