Alpo says...."patriot1, I have never denied that Social Security or Medicare is not based on a Ponzi scheme. It is what it is."
If you really believe that, why do you suppose Madoff, et al, are in jail?
His contributors were not FORCED to contribute to his scheme the way we are to social security and medicare.
Alpo says....."but the proper way to do that is to start with people entering the workforce NOW...not to change the game when people are about to cross the finish line."
Alpo, looks like you've pretty much described and defined a ponzi scheme.
Max is correct...in addition, FDR's "brain trust" actually visited the Soviet Union, met with Stalin and had high praise for his utopian collective villages he had staged for them. "It takes a Village", anyone? This has been the lefist's dream for decades but it always ends in tears.
mira.....As I have stated before on here, history didn't begin when George Bush got elected. 2.7 million uniformed military served in Vietnam and it ended while we were dealing with WWII and Korean War Veterans. Of course these were wars started during democrat adminstrations....
Taking the fifth....hmmmm, it's comforting to know those on the left at least acknowledge we still have a Bill of Rights.
alpoo....keep up those stem winders, someone will believe you
If there is anything this registered republican, pert-time pollster can't do, he has a family member that can.
nowfedup....you are correct, however it's more convoluted that that. I have completed OERs and EERs and been on the receiving end of OERs. Anything short of a stellar evaluation and flowering commentary on an evaluation can be career ending.
In addition, at least at battalion level, an Equal Employment Opportunity officer is sitting at his/her desk, thumping their fingers looking for something, anything to investigate. Consider Major Hasad, Fort Hood shooter. Had any of his peers or superiors hinted that his actions might be suspect before the shooting they would no doubt have felt the wrath of that EEO officer. A letter in a personnel file that a person has been looked at or investigated by EEO, and their career is over. It's much more career enhancing and safer to ignore and pretend to notice nothing than risk that visit by the EEO.
Alpo says.."I don't know and I don't care. My position is simple.
If a goil(sic) wants to be a grunt, let her go for it."
With all the commentary and bloviating you do on a subject when confronted with facts your standard answer is "I don't know and I don't care?" How funny.
Alpo seez.."I wondered where it was that you got your quote from regarding Veteran health care for sexual abuse. I pulled up my daily digest of news and what do I read on page one of Fox News?"
Alpo, I long ago learned you don't like to be confused by facts...but if you look just a little closer at that Fox News story, you'll see it was REALLY an AP story. Glad to see you're tuned in to Fox though.
