    Actually though Social Security was originally the "federal Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program", and my social security card says on it "social security account number", as if my money was being put away for my later use. Obviously things have morphed a bit.
    Obviously, they have.

    Unless, of course, you really do have an account with your name on it.

    My social security "account" was ransacked long ago; it's full of IOUs now.

    Gosh @Kallie Knoetze I wish all this "automation" would take place so we can transition to a Standardized Income.

    Once all these jobs are automated the elites and government will have no choice but to quell the angry masses.

    Mr. Tea,

    If that ever happens, it would be a great time to invest in liquor, cigarette, fancy sneaker, and hooptie accessory parts companies.

    Dont forget they gotta eliminate the excise taxes to make the booze and cigarrettes more "affordable" as well.

    Well according to studies Native Americans and Indigenous Tribes in Central/ South America and Asia enjoy more "HAPPINESS" and Fullfillment out of life "despite" being Dirt Poor...

    The difference though is they have "Basic Skills" and a Sense Of "Community" that us Modern Urban Dwellers seem to lack...

    Dont forget that they know "what" 2 do as well .

    What we "Yuppies" call "Survival Skills" when we go Camping or get lost on the Appalachian Trail are what "they" call EveryDay "Living Skills"
