Republican thinks SS and Medicare a free ride...

I was speaking with a younger Republican who stated that Entitlements like Social Security and Medicare are a free ride for old people.

I was surprised how little folks really know.

I said to heck it is.. She was, why should I be paying for your retirement. I told her that FICA takes as much as 10 to 12 percent of your wages for your whole life.. The life you say I have been paying for all the retired people before me. You pay it in, when are we supposed to get it back.. Never?

I said in addition when you do retire and go on Medicare, this is what happens..

Let's use a$1000 SS check to make it easy. The month you go on Medicare they take $134 of your check to pay for Medicare.. But it seems like a double hit.. Because you now have a new bill to pay, but you monthly check is now only $866 to pay for it... Try living on $866 a month... Go ahead, try it.

In addition you need two additional policies... You need a Plan B for what Medicare doesn't cover. The costs depends on the plan you choose, but let's say $150.00 a month. So now your SS check is $716.. Try living on $716 a month. Go ahead, try it...

You're going to need a prescription plan.. Say $20 per month. Now, your SS check is $696 per month. Try living on $696 per month.. Go ahead, try it...

And don't forget, there's no dental insurance any more once you're on Medicare. If you want it, it starts at about $20 a month.. Well, you can do the math from there..

Free ride my ass...

She didn't want to believe me, but others verified my math.. She left saying, I had no idea..

Why are there no Dems pushing to get rid of the electorial college?

If I am missing some bill or stance on the Dems part, I would be happy for DU to bring me up to the latest.

I hear everyday how voters are to blame for our past loss. But in light of the majority of voters voting for us, why do comments still push this idea.

Please do not ridicule my lack of knowledge.. Thanks.

Family Kicked Off Delta Flight,

Threatened With Jail, for Refusing to Give Up Child's Seat

A California family says they were kicked off a flight and threatened with jail for the adults and "foster care" for the children for refusing to give up a seat for their 2-year-old son, despite having paid for it, in the latest controversy for a major airline that was caught on video.....
An airline employee is then heard telling him, "So this is a federal offense. You and your wife could be in jail and your kids will be in foster care."

"We're going to be in jail and my kids are going to be what?" Schear interrupted.

The Schears said they were then forced to find their own hotel, transportation and purchase new tickets for a flight the next day all after midnight.


I didn't know flight attendants were allowed to give legal advise as well.

Montana Testicle Festival

Booze and balls are the name of the game at the Montana Testicle Festival, held annually at the Rock Creek Lodge in Clinton, Montana, USA. People come from all over to eat a few Rocky Mountain Oysters--deep-fried bull testicles--and take part in the beer-soaked, anything-goes 4-day festival.


From Wikipedia:A Testicle Festival is an event held at several small towns in which the featured activity is the consumption of animal testicles, usually battered and fried. The oldest such festival takes place in Byron, Illinois, and features turkey testicles. Similar festivals are held in Deerfield, Michigan; Olean, Missouri; Tiro, Ohio; Oakdale, California; Huntley, Illinois; Stillwater, Oklahoma;Salmon, Idaho and Clinton, Montana, some of which feature cattle testicles.

I hear you can get a shirt that says: Come to the Testicle Festival.. You'll have a ball..

Did anyone just see the last ten minutes of Survivor....

I don't quite know how to find any link for it.

It was really flooring and crazy..

I don't want to minimize or say something to take away from what happened to Zeke..
But basically an openly gay man that befriended Zeke, outed him on national television as Transgender.

The reaction of Zeke and the other contestants was so emotionally charged.
