Excellent point

Social Security at this point is intergenerational theft.

I would be inclined to be more forgiving to someone who is having trouble making ends meet taking food stamps than to someone - and this is beyond just Ron Paul - who is wealthy enough to not need money taking social security.

I know one guy here in Boston who owns 5 rental houses, free and clear with a monthly income over $6,000 in cash who pockets $1,200 per month in Social Security.

He doesn't need the money. Meanwhile, millions of young people who are struggling to make ends meet are having money forcibly confiscated from their paychecks monthly.

Truly, it is a moral outrage. Where is YAL on this issue?

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.
