I hadn't heard about the RR retiremnt being used for SS. Those retirement accounts are protected AFAIK
. SS will be broke regardless. Why? Less people working now by far, so less people paying SS taxes in and more people taking money out.
It always was a Ponzi scheme and unsustainable.
This country is SO broke, Romney is our only HOPE of coming out of this. WE need to run the country like a business, and not spend more than we take in. We can't pay the INTEREST on the debt, much less pay back the debt. We have already borrowed/mortgaged our children's future to China.
Even T Boone Pickens, the big promoter of Natural Gas, has recently admitted that wind power is not an economical way of producing power after investing 15 Million. Solar has proven just as bad, and the Govt keeps giving federally (taxpayer$$) funded/backed loans to solar companies, owned by Obama's buddies. Go Figure.
North Dakota is booming because it is sitting on an energy stockpile. You can't even rent a motel room in a major city I hear.
WE need to prevent this diabolical takeover of our energy resources by the Greens and do common sense, clean energy production and coal can be made clean.
I saw an electric/battery power bicycle this AM. What an oxy"moron". The guy just sat on it, turned it on and moved off without even pedaling. He's probably in great shape....right.
I rode a bike until I was 21 years old all over Chicago. I could go about 20 MPH in a full kick. I couldn't go 20 miles in 2 days now....
