"Since when is SS an entitlement?"

Actually, that's a great question. It's time Republicans stopped calling it that, as though drawing on it was only done by nipple-sucking liberals.

The escort was paid to lie by Republican operatives!!!
Which could have taken down a highly respected Democratic Senator

Escort says Menendez prostitution claims were made up

An escort who appeared on a video claiming Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) paid her for sex has told Dominican Republic police that she was instead paid to make up the claims in a tape recording and has never met or seen the senator before, according to court documents and two people briefed on her claim.

The woman identified a lawyer who approached her and a friend to make the videotape, according to affidavits obtained by the Post. That man has in turn identified another lawyer who gave him a script for the tape and paid him to find women to fabricate the claims, the affidavits say.

The escort was one of two women who taped videos that seems to support a tipster’s allegations that Menendez had patronized prostitutes while vacationing in the Dominican Republic.

FBI agents conducting interviews in the Dominican Republic have found no evidence to back up the tipster’s allegations, according to two people briefed on their work.

Menendez has denied the prostitution claims and called them entirely false “smears” used by enemies to try to defeat him in his recent re-election campaign and his selection as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“It’s amazing to me that anonymous, nameless, faceless individuals on a Web site can drive that type of story into the mainstream, but that’s what they’ve done successfully,” Menendez said last month. “Now, nobody can find them. No one ever met them. No one ever talked to them, but that’s where we’re at. So the bottom line is all of those smears are absolutely false and, you know, that’s the bottom line.”

The women’s videotaped claims, with their faces obscured, were played on the conservative Web site The Daily Caller. The news site reported that “the two women said they met Menendez around Easter at Casa de Campo, an expensive 7,000-acre resort in the Dominican Republic...They claimed Menendez agreed to pay them $500 for sex acts, but in the end they each received only $100.”

But in an affidavit obtained Monday, one of the women on the tape, who describes herself as an escort, said she and a colleague were offered money by a lawyer to read from a script. The woman said she was surreptitiously videotaped implicating Menendez and Melgen.

Since when is SS an entitlement?

It IS true, when people generally draw more that they pay in, which is the case, and is fundamentally why ti doesn't work over time. The original calculations did not take into account the significant lengthening of lifespan that has happened......

Politicians have, as usual, cleverly conflated two phrases. They've combined the fact that we ARE ENTITLED to collect Social Security, with "a sense of entitlement". The idea that SS is an inherent right or that it will or should meet anything other than basic subsistence is a sense of entitlement, but the original point of calling these things entitlements was because the government needs to ensure funding because we, the people are entitled to them. Politicians have managed to twist these words to make those most dependent on SS sound like undeserving leeches.

And while I'm bored and ranting, I don't know which I found scarier today, the idea of another Bush running for the White House, or the fact that I agreed with almost everything he had to say on immigration in his NPR interview. That Democratic "back of the line" plan was meaningless, designed to get hispanic votes now, and to convince democrats that it was going to help win future elections when in reality it was an empty promise, the system is broken for many of those already in line.

A minority of both parties approve, Republicans and independents both approve in higher numbers than Democrats, yet Democrats are hypocrites?

In any case, those overall numbers should be an embarrassment to the nation that is self-proclaimed leader of the free world, and are a perfect illustration of the fundamental flaw in democracy.

The word “FREEDOM” is among the list of banned vanity license plate slogans for Washington D.C., according a government file obtained by a Freedom of Information Request filed by the transparency website GovernmentAttic.org.

Other banned phrases include anti-tax messages such as "TAXKLLR" and "TAXRUS4" as well as any reference to the President of the United States such as “OBAMA,” “BARACK,” and “OBAMA44.″

“RONPAUL” is also banned.






Not that "Marxist" isnt on the ban list,, muwwahahahahaaaaa...

Bingo! Incidentally, in budget parlance, any "entitlement" is a program whose benefits have already accrued, but are unpaid, under existing laws.

While a few might decry Social Security's existence, the reason rational people seek entitlement reform is because, as Ken states above, the current formula causes the fund to run out of money. The Official Report of the Trustees of the Social Security system has said as much for several years. The idea that "entitlement reform" means ending Social Security is false. In fact, we need to change the formula so that we can preserve Social Security. Whether you like or dislike Republicans doesn't change one basic fact: If we do not modify existing Social Security law, the system will be unable to pay all of the promised benefits.

John

P.S. Dr. F: I'm still chuckling over your "karma" comment. For what it's worth, I thought it was both funny and tasteful.

Ironically, perhaps, while my wife and I had to start over financially in our mid-50's, we also discovered we had an awful lot of friends ready to help when we really needed it. My emotional downfall eventually led to enormous blessing I never would have seen otherwise.

JE,, CRAP happens --BTDT myself. Kudos for over-coming.


And,, sooo,, 250 million,,to the musloom brudderhoodlums and Morsi.....


A down payment on promises BO made in 011..


That makes about 335 million given to them recently. A govt that is tied to hamas, and al-qay-duh and that the people there dispise.

ANYONE able to explain this to me w/o the abc/nbc/cnn/ etc rhetoric?




edit:

Why are we financing THAT govt in egypt.


why are we financing the muslim brotherhood AT ALL?

Why do the egyptian people HATE the new Morsi govt so badly?

WHY ON EARTH would any politician THINK you can deal with an organization such as the mulsoom brotherhoodlums with ANY faith.??

Have we not repeated this very crap for decades with very tragic results?
