I’m Old enough to Remember-#1 – When we were told SS and Medicare Insurance was a safe thing.

Yes, I am old enough to remember.

I remember when I was a young worker for a major electronics manufacturing location and they, our government, told us that paying our SS and Medicare taxes was a GOOD THING!

Yep! If we paid those taxes we would be set for life when we retired.
A comfortable RETIREMENT and an assurance of top-level MEDICAL CARE was ours.

We just had to TRUST our government to take care of us!
TRUST?
TAKE CARE?
What a Joke!

Now we are the aging pariahs of a system that just wants us to hurry up and DIE!

Oh, and this was while our arrogant Congress voted themselves separation from “the peoples system” and into one of the must expensive and wasteful system of medical care designed just for them!
FULL COVERAGE! for Everything! For LIFE!

Yes, I remember!

Political News – I hate it when I am drowning in it and I become afraid when I hear nothing.

The daily Political News is a YIN-YANG thing to me.
I complain when I am inundated with it throughout the day, as with the latest PRIMARY reporting.

But, If I get a few hours into the day, and some idiot in Washington hasn’t come out with yet another stupid statement, well, then I get scared.
You see, in my opinion, a silent Politician is doing one of two things, as far as I am concerned.

ONE, they are off on some boondoggle that is paid for by either our taxes, or by some lobbyist group, that wants to take advantage of the American public in some way.

TWO, They are somewhere, working together on their own plans for either re-election, or changing this great country of ours into either a police state or a socialist catastrophe.

OK, OK, I am being pretty pessimistic.

But, at this moment, I am working on my taxes and when I see how badly I am being taxed, as a retiree, with a small but dwindling savings, I need to attack something.

Sad to say, after I am stripped of what little I have, who is left to pay for everyone on the dole?
Look Out, People, quiet Politicians are dangerous Politicians.
