Bernie Madoff & Social Security, A Side By Side Comparison

Bernie Madoff was sent to prison for running what’s called a Ponzi scheme.  He convinced people to invest with him but instead of actually investing their money, he just spent it.  When someone wanted to withdraw the money Madoff had been entrusted with he just used the funds from his new “clients” to pay back the old “clients”.  But, like all Ponzi schemes, eventually there are not enough new investors to pay back the old investors and the whole thing just implodes.

Now Bernie Madoff is one of the most hated men in America and he is off to jail, and rightfully so.  He stole the life savings and dashed the hopes and dreams of thousands of American families, but the dirty little secret here is that the US government has been doing exactly what Madoff did to his investors to all of us for over seventy years with the Social Security program.  There is no meaningful difference between the two schemes, except that one was operated by a private individual who is now in jail, and the other is operated by Washington politicians who are rewarded by the very people they are defrauding.

 Here’s a side by side comparison:

BERNIE MADOFF    Took money from investors with the promise that the money will be invested and made available to them later.

SOCIAL SECURITY    Takes money from wage earners with the promise that the money will be invested in a “Trust Fund” and made available to them later.

BERNIE MADOFF    Instead of investing the money Madoff spent it on mansions, limousines and yachts.

SOCIAL SECURITY    Instead of depositing money in the “Trust Fund” the politicians spend the money on pork barrel projects and “freebies” to buy votes.

BERNIE MADOFF    When the time came to pay some investors back Madoff simply used some of the funds from newer investors.

SOCIAL SECURITY    When benefits for older investors become due the politicians pay them with money taken from younger wage earners.

BERNIE MADOFF    When Madoff’s scheme is discovered all hell breaks loose. New investors won’t give him any more cash.

SOCIAL SECURITY    When Social Security eventually runs out of money they will simply force you to send them even more of your wages, and then congratulate themselves for “saving” Social Security.

Bernie Madoff is in jail, but the politicians remain in Washington enjoying the perks and privilges of their offices, once again proving that there is no place more corrupt and hypocritical on this Earth than Washington DC.

Ron Paul: If Women Don’t Like Being Sexually Harassed At The Workplace, Maybe They Should Find Another Job — Can You Imagine His Position On Rape?

Every time this ‘old idiot’ opens his mouth more than proves he’s INSANE! Every time Paul is caught saying something as horrifically as SICK like this he’s always saying that he wrote the good parts, but not the bad parts and I guess we are to believe him he NEVER reviewed it? BULL-CRAP!

Let’s say Paul has 10 supporters, of those 10… 9 of them are under the age of 30…. and 1 is too ‘senile’ to even know his name, and 6 of them will NOT get out of bed in time on election day to make it to the polls to vote…. 3 of them won’t have ID to prove they are U.S. Citizens and the remaining 1 should be able to cast his vote. Now back to earth…….Ron Paul will NEVER be on a Presidential ballot in anyone’s lifetime!….Papa Mike
Ron Paul says victim of sex harassment bears some responsibility for resolution

Ron Paul today stood by statements he made in his 1987 book arguing that someone who is a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace should bear some responsibility for resolving the problem and that society should not bear the burden of paying for the care of AIDS victims.

In his 1987 book “Freedom Under Siege: The US Constitution after 200-Plus Years,” Paul wrote about sexual harassment in the workplace, “Why don’t they quit once the so-called harassment starts? Obviously the morals of the harasser cannot be defended, but how can the harassee escape some responsibility for the problem?’’

In another passage, Paul wrote, “The individual suffering from AIDS certainly is a victim – frequently a victim of his own lifestyle – but this same individual victimizes innocent citizens by forcing them to pay for his care.”

On Fox News Sunday this morning, host Chris Wallace asked Paul, now a top contender in the Republican presidential race, whether he still agreed with those statements.

On the sexual harassment issue, Paul distinguished between verbal and physical harassment but said neither one warranted a federal law to prevent it.

“If it’s just because somebody told a joke to somebody who was offended, they don’t have a right to go to the federal government and have a policeman come in and put penalties on those individuals,” Paul said of verbal harassment. “They have to say maybe this is not a very good environment. They have the right to work there or not work there.”

Paul continued: “Because people are insulted by rude behavior, I don’t think we should make a federal case about it. I don’t think we need federal laws to deal with that. People should deal with that at home.”

Paul said a federal law against harassment also is not needed for physical violence, because there are already laws prohibiting assault and rape.

Paul’s comments could provoke anger from victims of sexual harassment and their advocates. Amy Sousa, interim executive director of the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, said Paul’s views sound like “bad economic policy as well as bad civil rights law.”

“In times of economic need, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to me to promote discrimination that keeps women out of the workforce,” she said.

On the AIDS issue, Paul said it is science that sexually transmitted diseases are caused by “promiscuous” sexual activity, and others should not be forced to pay for that. “If a fault comes of people because of their personal behavior — in a free society, people do dumb things — it isn’t to be placed as a burden on innocent people,’’ Paul said. “Why should they have to pay for any consequences? That’s a nationalistic or socialistic attitude.”

Paul did not distinguish between homosexual activity – which is more frequently a cause of AIDS – and heterosexual activity, which could cause other sexually transmitted diseases. Paul said the market, not the federal government, should determine who is able to get insurance at what price.

“People who are pregnant nine months, they can’t go and buy insurance,” Paul said. “If people are smokers, don’t they have to pay more?… Let the market sort this out or insurance sort this out, not have dictates by government.’’

On ABC’s This Week, Jake Tapper quizzed Paul about a series of newsletters published under his name in the 1980s and 1990s, which included several racist and homophobic remarks and have recently drawn scrutiny from the media. Paul has said he was the publisher, not the editor, of the newsletters, and he was unaware of the offensive comments.

Paul again said today that he wrote some of the economic parts of the newsletters, but did not write the offensive statements. “There were some very bad sentences put in. I did not write those, I did not review them. It was an error on my part,” Paul said.
