Re: Time for a third party?

Kraft, you have a lot of posts that strike me as ...well,...to put it charitably....as less than stellar.

 

I think you out did yourself with this one.

 

I really don't know where to start in......I think you can educate yourself about the so called social security trust fund...google it and you will find some great articles that explain where you dollars actually have gone to.

 

And the line about the Halliburton and Blackwater no-bid contracts....as being a product of free enterprise or the private sector....are you serious man? Have you been ingesting some drugs?

 

THESE ARE AN EXAMPLE OF GOVERNMENT WASTE....JUST LIKE THE $1000 HAMMERS OF THE OLD DAYS. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!

Too bad, huh, that the govt. can't leverage those payments 30 to 40 times and strike out credit default swaps to insure that piling on.

The front end of the baby boom had it pretty good.   Fairly low tax rates, a large working population to pay it, and FICA taxes that covered a fair portion of federal expenditures.  .gov didn't have to borrow so much or tax so much because of the excess coming in to SS.   The tail end of the Baby boom will be means tested for SS and gen-x on may get nothing, but now that SS has no excess funding (or very little) those same people will be asked to foot the bill for everything the early boomers coasted through.   One mans luck is anothers curse.

What about that "trust fund" that Kraft knows about? Maybe we can get him to help the government find it.

Re: Time for a third party?

Didn't see your poll but did see this--Sixty-four percent of all Americans say they like the idea of a third party that would run against the Democrats and Republicans. But only 38 percent would support a third party if its presence on the ballot would mean that the winning candidate is one that disagrees with them on most major issues. According to the poll, Tea Party activists feel the same way: Only 4 in 10 favor a third party that would result in the election of candidates they don’t like.
