TsarTom: We're all going to be picking up trash in a Walmart parking lot when we're 90 aren't we?


If it weren't for picking up trash at Walmart, I'd never get laid.

Don't worry. Once 0bummer is out of office, we'll cut taxes and balance the budget then there will be higher employment, higher wages, which mean Social Security will be saved.

Ass Exploder: Does anyone seriously not understand that the federal government PRINTS MONEY and CANNOT POSSIBLY RUN OUT OF MONEY?

That there is not a limited supply of money in the world, it is printed and created out of nothing by the government?


Yes, and money has a static vale that never changes. Are you an idiot?

bunner: iheartscotch: Smelly Pirate Hooker: If the U.S. was a hamburger, it'd be a half-eaten one from McDonald's that your kid stuffed under the back seat of your car 5 years ago.

If the United States was a corperation; it would be Enron.

The United States *is* a corporation. And they're moving the head office. Away. If you look outside, you can see the ass end of the getaway car.


If the United States was a getaway car driver; it would be Tyrone from Snatch.

Yes and who's government was that? It certainly wasn't the current generations.


Ask Al Gore. Maybe he has found the lockbox by now.

SOCIAL SECURITY, EXPLAINED

You
: Pantubo, here's $100,000. Please give it back to me, with interest, when I retire.
Me: Sure!

[next day]

You: Nice Ferrari! Wow! Hold on... did you spend my money on a Ferrari?
Me: No, you ignorant slut. I loaned the money to Pantubo Incorporated, and they bought it. Don't worry, they left a signed IOU and everything.


You: I see that's your signature. But, OK. I take it this car will help the business? Maybe impress some clients or something?
Me: Ha! No. We just pick up garbage in the neighborhood.

You: That's alarming. But, OK, as long as the business is profitable.
Me: Are you insane? We are $16 trillion in the hole, and we lose another $1.5 trillion per year.

You: I am officially terrified. How on Earth are you going to get me my $100K plus interest?
Me: Well, hopefully you will die soon. If not, we'll just jack up the garbage collection fees.
You: But I live here. How much more will I have to pay?
Me: Shouldn't be much more than $100K when all is said and done.

Not sure if this is brilliant sarcasm.

Can a guy named Ass Exploder really come up with such brilliant sarcasm?

burning_bridge: Well if your boy Bush hadn't raided the fund to hand out OUR money to his rich asshole friends we wouldn't need to worry about this crap now, would we???

Emphasis on OUR money there because it most definitely is. In case you weren't aware SS has a cap on how much it takes out from your wages, ie it's only based on the first $100k or so of your income. So the lion share of it is paid by the average American. And it was from this that we had a surplus and from that surplus we got the biggest hand-out in history to a group of people who paid relatively little into it. 

THERE'S YOUR DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH, TEATARDS.


Your retardism, it is full.

Well then the SS funding shortfall gets pulled from the general fund. Not paying the obligations of the SS trust fund is akin to halting interest payments on the federal debt.

Regardless, the reason there's a funding shortfall now is that unemployment is so high and wages for those lucky enough to have jobs have been stagnant for 30 years. But you keeping harping on mythical problems and mythical solutions involving tax cuts for rich people, submitter - I'm certain one of them will sleep with you sometime this millennium.
