Stealing from Social Security to Pay for Wars and Bailouts

The American Empire is failing. A number of its puppet rulers are being overthrown by popular protests, and the almighty dollar will not even buy one Swiss franc, one Canadian dollar, or one Australian dollar. Despite the sovereign debt problem that threatens EU members Greece, Ireland, Spain, and Portugal, it requires $1.38 dollars to buy one euro, a new currency that was issued at parity with the US dollar.

The cost of these wars is enormous. The US media, being good servants for the government, only reports the out-of-pocket or current cost of the wars, which is only about one-third of the real cost. The current cost leaves out the cost of life-long care for the wounded and maimed, the cost of life-long military pensions of those who fought in the wars, the replacement costs of the destroyed equipment, the opportunity cost of the resources wasted in war, and other costs. The true cost of America’s illegal Iraq invasion, which was based entirely on lies, fabrications and deceptions, is at least $3,000 billion according to economist Joseph Stiglitz and budget expert Linda Bilmes.
The government of the United States does not represent the American people. It represents the oligarchs. The way campaign finance and elections are structured, the American people cannot take back their government by voting. A once proud and free people have been reduced to serfdom.

It is sad, but nothing new.

It all began in the 1950's when Ike borrowed some money from the SS Trust Fund to build the Interstate Highway System.

No, it was never 'paid back'.

You cant steal from SS because there is nothing in SS but IOU's FROM you TO you.70 yrs of SS DEBT
SS is broke except to those that lie that it's not. You will never see a penny of your money if youre not getting it now, and in any respect it's lost 75% of it value from 40 yr ago. AND you are gonna pay tax on it as income as sales tax. The smart money is on collecting deposit cans and bottles.

What it says is "hey, that big scam a while back where the gubbamint told you you were all too stupid to save 20% of your income week after week so you should let them go ahead and do (under penalty of law by the way) for you didnt exactly work out so well."

They treated social security the way a alcoholic landlord with a gambling addiction treats your first months deposit.
