  1. As Will Rogers once said "You can fool all of the people all of the time if the advertising is right and the budget is big enough." Maybe this needs some money thrown at it.

  2. Social Security IS a pyramid scheme of the greatest proportions.

    If you repeat a lie enough, people will believe it.

    The only reason this topic won't die... the Media is trying to pave the way for Titus' run for congress.
