The thing that irks me the most is the whole "social security" fiasco. People actually think that the government could have "saved" the money that was sent in from their paychecks. This is ridiculous. Think about how much money was sent in, and what would of happened had that money been stacked up in a vault somewhere(inflation). Privatization of social security is not the answer - scrapping the whole thing is the answer. Nanny Government should not be the person to take care of you when you get old, your children or your own savings should be what takes care of you.

I've seen some articles posted about how few people believe Social Security will still be available for them when they retire.
It wouldn't matter much anyway. SS benefits would hardly cover the electric bill these days.
Too many Republicans have become cheerleaders just like their Democrat counterparts. It matters little if government works, so long as their team is winning.
