Please help me out here. Are you a politician or did you take this personally for some other reason?
Just about all of us retirees on this forum have financed most if not all of our retirement ourselves and many more have paid far more into Social Security than we will ever live long enough to get back.I think the post referred to the huge retirement packages politicians receive, and not the rest of us who pay our own bills.
I'm not perfect so I may have misinterpreted what was written. You can decide for yourself. Here was my take on it.
The first poster wrote, "What the ---- is going on?". This followed his/her observation that the U.S. jumps thorugh hoops to fulfill Mexico's demands when Mexico very seldom lift's a finger to fulfill our requests." In response the second poster stated what I thought was an attempt to say that Mexico is sending it's nationals northward to shore up our Social Security system, and we don't want to offend them.
I am a very staunch supporter of getting our borders under control. I do not want to see between 20 and 30 million Mexican nationals in the U.S. naturalized, so that they can then bring in five family members under chain immigration rules. I take massive offense to the idea that our nation couldn't survive without these people, or that our Social Security system would colapse without them.
Note the second poster said, "...who are paying for your retirement." Okay, who is paying for the retirement of those officials? You and I are, and it's obvious they aren't pandering to us, are they.
No, I believe the post either meant that the illegal flow mustn't be cut off and or that the Social Security system would fail, if we offended Mexico.
Is Mexico paying for our officials retirements? Well, at least not that we know of.
Thanks for asking.
