What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

We need Social Security to be a real living income now!

Here is a good one.


I just got a private message telling me I should stop riling people up over Social Security because a radical like me associated with pushing for a Social Security increase makes it hard for the Democrats to associate themselves with legislation required to bring this about.


I am told to be patient; that the Democrats will get to this as soon as other pressing concerns are dealt with.


What a crock of shit!


We have been waiting for Social Security to become a real living income as FDR, Frances Perkins and the Democrat’s Committee on Economic Security promised way back in 1935!


If you keep your mouth shut you will get nothing.


We are entitled to a living income on Social Security... see Article 22...and it’s time for the United States government to live up to this beginning with a $500.00 a month increase for everyone right now. The United States government has never contributed one single penny towards Social Security but has robbed the Social Security Trust Fund blind to pay for its dirty imperialist wars:

We need to hound the Blue Wave until we get a raise...


We need to begin pestering these politicians in the same persistent way they begged for our votes with what we expect them to deliver.


Did any politicians get specific about what they intend to do with Social Security? No.


But we should:


So; it seems Congress has been caught stealing from the Social Security Trust Fund once again; while pensioners receive a miserly 2.8% increase the theft from the Social Security Trust Fund is now 2.8, too- $2.8 trillion dollars!


And these politicians go around telling the big fat lie that Social Security is part of the federal budget, when it is not since employer and employee contributions pay for everything that is part of Social Security.


The one thing that really is the biggest part of the federal budget none of these worthless Wall Street bribed politicians or their party hacks and the media’s talking heads want to talk about which is nothing but more theft from the people is the expenditure on militarism and these dirty imperialist wars.


It took a fight to win Social Security and it is going to take an even bigger struggle to save it. Get prepared for the battle ahead.


No one on Social Security should receive less than $2,000.00 a month.


Everyone on Social Security should receive an immediate $500.00 a month increase.


The Federal government hasn’t been kicking anything into Social Security and it should... it should get this money from what is now being spent on militarism and wars... a $500.00 a month Peace Dividend for seniors.


And Social Security benefits and payments should not be subject to income tax.
