Hey kids, wake up! Stop playing your X-Box while listening to your Facebooks on the iPod and wearing your iPad with the cap turned backwards with the droopy pants and the bikini underwear listening to Snoopy Poopy Poop Dogg and the Enema Man and all that!
Take a break from getting yet another tattoo on your ass bone or your nipples pierced already! And STFU about the 1 Percent vs. the 99 Percent!
You're not getting screwed by billionaires and plutocrats. You're getting screwed by Mom and Dad.

We should end social security. It's generational theft. Sell federal lands to pay off those who contributed and let younger Americans keep what they earn so they can pay for their own old age.
the whole system is a house of cards. no one is getting ahead. there are just simplly no jobs.
Socialism security provided the cash that allowed government to grow beyond all constitutional bounds. Now the bill is coming due and the politicians we elected spent all the money. The piggy bank is empty for the older Boomers. Of course that was the idea. Wealth was to be transferred from those with shorter life spans to those with longer life spans. Let me identify those groups - from Black men to White women. This is statistically true and irrefutable so don’t bother trying.
Isn’t it just too bad that you can’t take the issue up with Democrat FDR, because he’s responsible.
P.S. I’m a white woman who has paid in to SS but will never be able to draw it out.
The only time I’ll watch Bill Maher is when Nick Gillespie appears as a guest. Nick does such a good job of showing every flaw of Maher’s mindset, and never lets up.
Expel illegal aliens and end H1B visas. Then there are jobs Americans will do. End welfare and lower the minimum wage while we’re at it. The federal government has no enumerated power to provide food stamps or other welfare. And no power to set wages. Close the borders. Rein in the EPA. We’ll have enough jobs here in the US soon enough.
Quit making excuses. We have choices. Stopping generational theft is a choice we can make, and we can even pay off the folks like you and I who paid in at a reasonable rate if we sell federal land, mineral rights, etc.
I am not much of a fan of Maher, but it would be worth it to watch Nick eviscerate him.
It's a sight to behold...lol!
The generation before the greatest is who gave us Social Security. The Great Society, however, was their baby.
Sadly, the people who created this mess are dead and gone. We can go to the graveyard and scream at their graves but it won’t do a damn bit of good. Everyone has to take on part of this burden to stop this Ponzi Scheme. It will financially crush our children.
Tom Brokaw who coined the term has a different start date than you do - his is 1901. Too young to be in WW1. YMMV.
Which is why we sell assets - federal land and end the program.
bookmarked for later
And I hate to break it to you Millenials, but there are a whole helluva lot more of us than there are of you.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Who’s a millennial? Not me. And yep. Majoritarian tyranny is bad.
You mean fund the payoffs to your level of the Ponzi scheme with what assets the federal government has?
Not so much warfare as a good back alley mugging.
This particular boomer - who is still paying the max into the system - knew that this was a Ponzi scheme long ago. And it should be clear to anyone who actually went to a creditable high school (although those seem to be rarer than an honest politician now).
If one wants a real laugh, go back and read all the accusations Republicans made about SS during its introduction. Then read the Democrat’s responses.
Each Democrat response is now a fully documented LIE.
Each Republican accusation has been fully proven.
Face it, math is NOT a friend of liberals. It can never be.
