Bobmoon70 commented on the blog post Rich Lowry: Tea Party is “Polite, Patriotic”; Occupy Wall Street is “Pathetic, Toxic”
Just what planet is Rich on????? I can’t remember any time when these tea-bagger nitwits have shown up on the tube where they’ve been polite. What I’ve seen of the “Occupy” folks they have been VERY polite, on;y to be manipulated by the CORPORATE MEDIA and OFFICIALS to appear unruly. Lowry is a freaking IDIOT.

I have to agree with your take on SS. The whole idea of privatization of Social Security is so out of touch with reality that I will relate what happened to me. When I retired in 2003 I had in addition to SS a retirement account with a strong 6 figure face value that was in Mutual Funds. In 2007 or 2008 the Stock Market took a big hit I lost about half of the value of that account. I was forced to lower my distribution amount so that I wouldn’t wipe it out entirely.
This idea of the Rethuglicans to privatize is just a gift to the Wall Street bankers to use working peoples safety net to gamble with and make millions and leave us holding the bag. The reduction of payroll tax just reduces funding and gives them a reason in the future to wipe it out completely.
