    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: SCHILLING'S firm is in trouble? : Right, well and the Congressional Budget office, who has stated that the Bush era tax cuts and 2 unpaid wars are the number 1 causes of the deficit. Obama took over the worst economy America had seen in 80 years, if that is not Bush's fault, then who's fault is it?  Whether or not Obama has done enough of the right things to bring America back from the disaster that was W. Bush is up for the voter's to decide but Bush ran the economy into the ground, there is no debating that.

    Research the housing market crash, please be informed and stop putting all the blame on bush, it's getting old.

    Obama did inherit a bad economy but his policies are making it worse, not better.

    So very true. A lot of people especially in the telecom industry lost their 401ks during the tail end of the Clinton admin when the bubble burst.

    Life time employees of companies like AT&T, Nortel and Lucent lost their life savings because they thought that their companies and their products were bullet proof.

    Thank-you for reminding us of that fact.  My husband lost his job because of the crash.  Thankfully he was able to get a job, it paid one fifth of what he had previously made.  He had a job so we were thankful.

    Because he worked hard and continued to update his education we are fine now.

    How quickly we have forgotten 9/11 and all it did to our economy.

    what a legacy this clown is leaving behind! this is what we are going to get with a president rromney. win or lose the CRONY CAPITALISTs win. we should be avenging this. it never ends. look at the facebook FRAUD IPo. the investment bankers blatantly hid key info and artificially propped up the price for the suckers. of course it was never going to stay at $40, it won't even stay at $18. The company makes nothing. Great theorewtical business model, lousy profit, growth and IPO models. They are losing customers every day and folks are spending less and less time and sharing far less due to the total lack of privacy. What responsible person wants all their stuff sold to advertisers, employers and anyone with the interest and funds to pay FACEBOOK directly for it? no thanks! Google's business and growth models are far better.

    This has been a badddd month for wall street and greed capitalism. will anyone of these frauds ever get arrested? they know there are no consequences and that their GOP lackeys will offer protection as they get millions under the table. For a schill, its a win-win , no matter what. who loses? the poor state and the workers, the jobbers. who do you thinks pays for all of their unemployment? i am all for capitalism, but this is not real capitalism, it faux or fraud capitalism. in real capitalism, when your RISKS work out like with the google, buffet or microsoft guys, you get fullly compensated.. which is a very GOOOOD thing. in fraud capitalism, you do everything WRONG, default on loans and totally misread the times and marketplace, yet you still recoup your $4m (if not more) and leave others to hold the bag! in real capitalism, like at vegas, when you lose the bet, you PAY up. not the house or others around you! this is why the occupyers are out there and i get their point. They should be occupying Rhode Island and schill's neighborhood!

    again, i own a business and i'm all for CAPITTALISM, but this is B-S fraud capitalism!

    Maybe that simply means that people should have to prove financial hardship in order to collect it.

    My taxes go to a lot of things that don't directly benefit me and I have no problem with that, as long as they have a positive benefit to society as a whole. SS should be used as it was intended, a safety net for people who didn't do well enough financially during their productive years so that they won't become destitute in their old age.

    Yeah it should be but like any other big program run by the government it's run poorly and rife with corruption, fraud and a lot of folks collect who haven't contributed a dime.

    Why should that bother you? I don't have any children but my taxes pay for public education. I'm not hung up about getting everything back that I paid into the system as long as it contributes to a better society. I think of it more like insurance. I have insurance on my car and house but I hope I would never need to collect on it. I would rather live in a society that takes care of those who, through no fault of their own, can no longer take care of themselves without some government assistance. I am more than willing to pay that price. My SS contributions are not a personal savings account. It doesn't work that way and it shouldn't have to.

    I'm not a liberal.

    What you propose is redistribution of my money, money that I've earned to give to someone that you deem to be more deserving than me.

    What's the difference between that and a stick-up?

    This is the problem I have with liberals and with entitlement programs.

    This is why we are having an election this fall. There are too many people on the dole not pulling their freight, who take advantage of these programs which btw we can't afford unless China finances them.

    I don't see it as an entitlement program. I see it as a social safety net that helps prevent worse social problems from happening which in the long run the government would be forced to step in and address.

    Do you call paying taxes for police and fire protection a stick-up? If your house never catches fire are you still willing to pay for that protection. If you are never the victim of a criminal do you want to stop paying for police? This also redistributes our money to employ people to protect us, even if we never require their services. Giving money to older citizens who don't have enough to meet their basic needs has nothing to do with who is "more deserving". It simply has to do with the public good. You do realize why SS was put into place, don't you?

    I don't identify myself as a liberal or conservative or any other label that amounts to following an ideology as if it were a universal truth. I am a pragmatist.

    First of all what you would like is pie in the sky because what you want isn't happening unless laws are changed.

    Secondly you might consider yourself to be a pragmatist but what you propose is socialism.

    The govt. forcibly took money from me weekly my entire life with the intent to begin to return it at age 65, that was the deal going in.

    I want more of the money that I earn, I don't the government spending my hard earned money on what they think is best for me.

    Pols like Chuck Schumer and Obama with my money is not a comforting feeling.

    I give money to causes that i choose to give to.

    And if I have this correct you have a problem with me collecting money from SS after I contributed for the past 48 years.

    That's what we're discussing right?
