Aparently our word for today is 'ilk'.
'child, yes your are definately wrong. WRONG. OH, SO WRONG!!!
We have plenty of military vets here so don't be such a snob. You don't know a darn thing they don't know so stop pretending you do.
And you bring up the old chestnut 'spitting on the vets'. Where did that happen? It didn't. People who were against the war felt sad enough for the people who were fighting it, they had no desire to add to the vets misery.
And misery it is! When people are in war they are subjected not only to the danger of being caught, injured or killed, they are subjected to the harmful psychological effects of battle and the poisonous substances that go into their lungs and skin from contamination from the weapons used. War is hell indeed!
Could you enlighten me on how people could eat up what Bill Clinton ,Al Gore and about 20 other democrats said about ss in the past being in a state of disarray but now that gwb says it and tried to do something about it all of the sudden there is no crises. Those damn sound bites will get you every time.
Why don't you try to enlighten yourself before calling others out. Bill Clinton did do 'something' about Social Security--he built the country up with jobs, put our country's finances into an ever climbing surplus and the Social Security surplus into a lockbox.
George W Bush immediately paid companies to ship jobs out of the United States, sent our financial situation into a spiralling downward plunge, looted the Social Security funds and then claimed we had a 'Social Security crisis'.
No, what we have is a crisis of leadership. Your hero is leading us into hell without so much as the handbasket to go with it.
How many trillion in debt do you want Bush to leave to your grandchildren for your 'private account'? Why don't you start up a private account on your own? Are you too lazy? Are you too cheap? Are you too stupid? Do you really believe you are going to 'own' that account? If so, the laugh is on you--it is going to be owned by another huge bureaucracy that is going to skim a large amount off the top for themselves.
And when that account is used up, you had better be ready to die because the government is not going to give you a damn thing beyond what it gives now to 'poor people'. Are you ready to become a poor person?
Republicans have been trying since FDR put Social Security into place to kill it. This is their chance. They are going to spend a fortune trying to convince people of their 'crisis' and some will believe as you aparently do. It is going to take people like Catherine and the rest of us on this board to get the word out that this country is being run by a gang of criminals whose whole concept of a 'good time' is making life miserable for people who are not rich and socially connected to the mob.
Considering your foul means of 'communicating', I have no desire whatsoever to be part of your little gang of thieves.
