    STEAL THE MONEY....

    > ACTUALLY, DEMOCRAT PRESIDENT KENNEDY AND SERGEANT SHRIVER WERE THE FIRST
    ONES TO MISUSE THE SOCIAL SECURITY ACCOUNT.. THEY USED SOCIAL SECURITY
    FUNDS TO START THE PEACE CORPS. NOT THE FIRST OR LAST TIME OUR MONEY
    HAS BEEN TAKEN FROM AMERICAN CITIZENS AND GIVEN TO FOREIGN NATIONS.

    YOUNG WHIPPERSNAPPERS (& SOME OLDER ONES) DIDN'T KNOW THIS. IT'S EASY TO

    AND FRIENDS. THEY NEED A LITTLE HISTORY LESSON ON WHAT'S WHAT AND IT
    DOESN'T MATTER WHETHER YOU ARE DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN. FACTS ARE FACTS.

    If we only had a free and honest press in America, the average victim (citizen) would already know this.

    How many people know that the Supreme Court has already ruled that Social Security is a TAX, not an entitlement, and you are not entitled to one red cent contained therein, no matter how much you paid? The really scary thing about this lack of knowledge is how LONG ago it happened - Fleming vs Nestor, 1960.

    The money from the SS Trust Fund was never moved directly into the General Fund but was "loaned" in the form of bonds.

    Treasury Bonds are issued from the trust fund to the federal government and to the public. The federal government has been buying these bonds and owes approximately $2.8 Trillion to the trust fund.
