If you don't speak up you accept what is happening. This site was born out of the mainstream media's inability to cover the news. I am just an American cititzen trying to spread the word in the era of FCC consolidation, post 9/11 Patriot Act hysteria, hackable voting machines and war without end. I rant and post news items I perceive to be relevant to our current situation.
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

Social Security is not broken and therefore does not need to be fixed
So Called Social Security Crisis (SCSSC)
Comments, questions, corrections, rebuttals are always welcome.
Remember and don't ever forget this is not about private accounts or any other crap the Republicans will try and use to take your mind of their main goal in this whole discussion on Social Security. This is about whether or not a guaranteed insurance program we call Social Security should continue to exist! Ex-House leader: Social Security should go away. That's their headline. Mine would be: Ex-Delay lackey, Republican Dick Armey: Wants to end Social Security.:
"I think if you leave people free to choose, it will be phased out by competition," the former Republican congressman from Lewisville told reporters before sharing a President's Day Dinner with the Smith County Republican Club.In other words: Once we take trillions out of it and make it insolvent no one in their right mind would put their money in Social Security. I also like this paragraph:
"We now have a generation of people that are thoroughly committed to investing their hopes and futures in private IRAs (Individual Retirement Accounts)," Armey said. "People will always do better for themselves when they are free to choose from among competing options than if they are compelled. Most thoughtful people could do better."Look asshole, that's the reason Social Security was created in the first place. Most people are not thoughtful with their money. So you guarantee them some money when they retire so they have something. Get it?
