Media bias? nawwww

Note the headline: AP: Bush's Social Security Plan Cuts Benefits Not, "Bush SS plan would pay low-income retirees more," or even, "Bush proposes income-adjusted SS benefits." No, no, fluffy. Must. Bash. Bush. AT. All. Costs.

The lock box should be ripped open and shaken all over into individual's retirement accounts or used now for family and personal needs. Do we really think that the government has our best in mind through social security? I think not!

Problem is, the lockbox is all IOUs, not cash. IOUs backed by the full faith and credit of the Government of the United States, yes, but still IOUs. It's a giant Ponzi scheme, and has been for decades. As the last of the baby boomers, I don't expect to get anything out of SS when I retire - assuming I can ever afford to retire.

Maybe when I get too old to do useful work I'll buy a one-way ticket to Saudi Arabia and wander the streets shouting "Isa Akhbar!" (Jesus is great!) as long as they let me...
