I will let them have my 401k with a 8.5% guaranteed return on my money for a few years. 8.5% is a very good CD in today's market.

The problem is.... this is about people's lives and what they have worked for all their life, to waste and use the pension plans ......... I am soo outraged at the thought of it.
If this doesn't get people to take to the streets.... I have no idea what would!!!!

I'm with you... "Walk on Washington" ...how can we as a collective group get enough involved to accomplish this? I've noticed that this is going on across Europe, France even. Any chance of convincing a Super-Mod to post a Mass P2P if/when we could come up with a concensus on a Date?
Maybe mass E details to Local Radio/TV/Utube???

Oh I can just see it now. Massive crowds in the millions surrounding the White House, rioting, yelling, chanting, and armed with all sorts of weapons, waiting to take out whoever votes to approve such a ridiculous proposal. They've taken "going way too far" to another dimension. The very idea is what puts the "ILL" in illogical. We all knew that nothing would surprise us as far as what Congress and the rest of Washington would do in response to this crisis and boy were we ever so right. Look, from now on, when people tell us about something ludicrous our government is planning to do, my first impulse will not be to write it off and something ludicrous. I will instead consider it a very real possibility. At this point, there should be no doubt that lunatics, not leaders, are running our government.
And by the way, I just want to point out that when I first created my signature way back in 2004, people were quick to dispute it. No one is disputing it now.

As far as your signature, America is FAR from the "Root" of ANY Evil. Politicians with Unlimited Terms are the Root of All Evil.

I can think of a way to cut at least $90,575,500.00 Right off the top:
2008 -- $169,300 per annum Average Salary of Congressmen X 535.

See my point is, I am speaking from an area of knowledge. You are speaking from a lack of knowledge and fear. Trust me, if they govt ever tried to take control of pensions from people, there would be a riot.

DUH The msm machine is still going strong and succeding I see.(the oil company commercials are non stop,but they are the only ones still making billions)Who do you support again? Funny how the shoes on the other foot for a change! Now now, be patriotic and support your president! Remember we're all in this together.
