Social Security could be in the red in two years

19 08 2009

In a interview with the Tuscaloosa News on Tuesday Aug 18th Congressman Spencer Bachus, from Alabama’s sixth district, a republican said that social security will show a deficit in two years.

Does any one find this surprising? With the Democrats trying to enslave us to the state (for our own good, mind you) and the Republicans in the pocket of those who seek profit at the expense of their own countrymen (NAFTA, GATT) the revinues of the government are drying up fast.

“What this recession has done to Social Security is pretty alarming,” he said. “We’ve known for 15 years that we were going to have to make adjustments to Social Security, but we still thought that was seven or eight years down the road.

Its nice to admit that you saw this problem coming and instead of fixing it like we pay you to do, you stuck your head in the sand because you were to lazy to work for the fat paycheck most of your constituents would kill for.

He continues

But if things don’t improve very quickly, we’re going to be dealing with that problem before we know it.”

Oh Really? Like you and the rest of Congress have spent TRILLIONS of Taxpayers hard earned dollars to save failing banks and needless stimulus?

As for the looming Social Security crisis, Bachus said solutions are beginning to be discussed.

“We could raise the retirement age, or in the worst case, cut back on some benefits,” he said. “But that is something we are just now beginning to get a handle on.”

The retirement has all ready been raised. Benefits being cut is governments response to the reality of its total incompetence in running anything.

Government was instituted to promote the general welfare, Not issue welfare checks.

The simple and logical solution to all this is,

First, Secure the boarders.

Remove Illegals and return them to their home countries, this will raise American wages and increase revenues into the government.

Withdraw from NAFTA and GATT to reestablish our sovereignty.

And get the government out of the welfare business, being compassionate has created a underclass of citizens who are permanently enslaved to the government.

Doing something

7 02 2009

The president keeps saying that we have to do something to help the economy, I can always do something Mr. President. Doing “something” is not always helpful.

If my kitchen is on fire, doing “something” could be throwing the gasoline from my garage on it. If I don’t have enough money to cover my bills this month, doing “something” could be taking what money I have and play it at the local casino. Both are cases of doing something but not the right thing. I’m not asking for you to do the most correct thing, although I would like that, I just don’t want you making things worse.

Let the people screwinise what you and congress do, we didn’t elect you to rule over us, we elected you to represent us. You work for us! We do get to grade your work on a daily basis. We will cheer when you do well and boo and hiss when you foul up.

We the people are your boss and we will keep you on however a short leash we think you deserve.

So quit whining about how long this bill is taking. I like what President Jefferson said about situations like this.

Delay is preferable to error.
