"I'd Turn Back If I Were You!" (The Cowardly Lion)
Obviously, my ideas are mine alone, and are NOT the ideas of my Employer!!!!
No...the boomers should get the retirement that was promised and earned...pretty simple really. The American people should call it what it really is...the biggest government scam in history and for them to make restitution...not the American people. The government defrauded the people...not the boomers!
Should, but they won't. Because it is gone. I want reform to fix what has been done. So that it won't happen again.
In this country we don't hold our politians responsible for their actions. We live in an era of taxation without representation. They do whatever they want. If you protest. They have you arrested.
This all happened on the boomers watch. They share the blame. For doing nothing to stop it or fix it.
If you are walking home with a buddy. And he jumps a fence and breaks into a house and kills someone. And you do nothing. You get the murder charge too.
You are part of the problem...you...like you said yourself...And why do you suppose that is? Could it be you are like many others that fear your government and and don't want to even contemplate the possibility they are turning our country into Totalitarianism? And you realize that they have so much control over the American public now...that resistance would be futile anyway...so you just keep your head in the sand and since you have to have piece of mind on this and salvage what is left of your pride...you blame the boomersIn this country we don't hold our politians responsible for their actions.
What you fail to realize is the boomers were just like yourself...even back in the day we have heard the Social Security woes and again like you...have complained about being forced to pay...and now after paying into our life...there is no one and that includes you...that's not going to tell me that we don't deserve it!
Your quote:If a youngster is walking home with their parent and your parent jumps a fence and breaks into a house and kills someone. And you do nothing. Do...you get the murder charge too?If you are walking home with a buddy. And he jumps a fence and breaks into a house and kills someone. And you do nothing. You get the murder charge too.
I hope that I'm around when you retire...because mark my words...the left will get it's way and SS will stay...after all it's by design...the right pretends to strip it away thus scaring the older generation and at the same time appeasing the younger generation...like they are actually trying to do something about it.Then you have the left...that will be declared the winner of this battle by keeping this scam alive and saving the day by protecting the retirement of all us baby boomers while only having to raise the taxes yet again.But so many will be so elated just by their retirement being saved...they will be more than happy paying more taxes to keep it...while at the same time giving the younger generation someone to blame...the boomers! And you will fall for it...hook...line and sinker! So you see...you are being manipulated.And what will be the best part in all this is that the generation behind you will be blaming you.And if you are willing then to give away what you were forced to pay into all your life and spend the rest of your days poverty stricken just to satisfy them to prove you're not selfish and care enough...then by all means do so...but leave ours alone!
IMO...if you want to fight for something...stand up and be a man...and fight the real perpetrators in this scandal
and not just blame the boomers and expect them to suffer when it was the governments doing all along...like you...yourself admitted! And go ahead and try to fight the corruption in Washington and see how many are willing to stand with you. I will be watching...
