Old news. Didn't see the Dems lengthening work week. It takes two not to tango. Get over it.
Great idea. Wish I'd thought of it.
Jeez everybody, I didn't think it was all that controversial. Never (seldom, anyway) saw so many unsubstantiated facts. Take some deep breaths and think about being rational.
Dusty is, as usual, very cogent for a liberal. Don't know
about all those positive Solyndra comments, but I remember
similar ones about JDS Uniphase, Global Crossing, Worldcom
and others. They all went broke without (I think) federal
If the paperwork mess is as bad as even Dusty agrees (and
he's a lawyer), is there any hope even for the private sector?
Can we not at least fail more simply?
Dusty? Agrees? Maybe I'd better reconsider...
Thanks JER. You have a life.
Listen, y'all, here are some hard facts to chew on:
Average life expectancy in 1935 (SS introduced): 62
Average life expectancy in 1965 (medicare): 70
Average life expectancy today: 78
Workers per retiree in 1950: 16.5
Workers per retiree today: 3.2
Doesn't matter how hard you worked or how much you paid, the money's not there.
Thank you moonchild. You have made my point.
Perhaps you should read the entire column.
Why shouldn't the government help? BECAUSE IT IS FLAT BROKE! Have a nice day.
