Pat, the only job I know of that doesn't pay into SS is the railroads. I know whenever I deal with tax issues I see a lot of opportunities to input information pertaining to Railroad Retirement Funds. There may be others, but if so I don 't know of them.
Dale, I recommend you read : http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2014/02/dear-beautiful-america-please-stop.html for confirmation of your point of view and mine, and I especially recommend Ted Paulk, Noble Collins, and the rest of the far-left denizens driving our nation into the cesspool read it. It's a letter from an émigré from the Soviet Union who, upon arriving in the United States, almost cried when he discovered how, up until that point, his life had been stolen from him by the reality of the far-left Marxist-Leninist paradigm. He describes life growing up in the Soviet Union under the wonderful Marxist utopia. It will be a bitter pill for millions upon millions of people if Obama and his sycophants get their way.
We have a solution, and we are advocating it: Government officials, every single one from the president to the local dogcatcher, should obey the Constitution of the United States they are sworn on their honor to uphold and defend. There is no problem facing our nation that could not be resolved by that solution.
I don't accept your juvenile perjorative "teabagger" as a label for the Tea Party, Ted; you need to grow up and discuss or debate issues like an intelligent adult. You can start by explaining to me how a fundamental requirement that elected officials honor, respect, uphold, defend, and constrain themselves to the delegated powers conveyed to them by the U.S. Constitution, translates to "wannabe tyrants." The purpose of the U.S. Constitution is to prohibit wannabe tyrants from exercising power they don't have. You want wannabe tyrants to exercise power not delegated to them, thus oppressing the rights and liberties of the people and creating a tyranny. Can you do that, Ted? Can you justify your ideology under the rule of law? Can you explain to me how prohibiting the robbery of innocent people who work hard to survive and provide for their families makes one a "wannabe tyrant"?
In terms of "we only get theater from the puppets in charge..." you are mostly right. But here is a newsflash for those who think poorly of all those "rich and corporations": What, do you think all those "rich and corporations" have all their wealth in a basement vault collecting dust? You think they go around collecting money right and left and tucking it away where it is not available to anyone? Ain't true! "Rich and corporations" have their money out there in the market place, paying wages, investing in business, generating jobs, developing inventions, supporting education, supporting charities -- in short, PRODUCING. Making the economy work! The first thing dictatorships do when they take over a nation, especially Marxist dictatorships, is confiscate all the wealth -- and don't think for a minute they divvy it up among the people. No, they keep it for themselves, and everyone else can go starve, and face a firing squad for disloyalty if they object. No Marxist dictatorship has ever survived in the history of this planet without a constant infusion of cash from capitalist nations who know how to PRODUCE, and who have an incentive to PRODUCE called "profit." It was true of the Soviet Union from 1917 to 1991, and it is true of China today. (I have my own gripes against corporations; I don't think corporate officers should escape accountability for decisions made in the name of the corporation that deprive people of their rights -- like no weapons allowed on premises open to the public, for example. But that is a different issue.)
Oh, Ted, you make yourself sound so foolish with your hateful diatribes against a group of people you clearly know nothing about. We are not "anti-immigration," "anti-poor," "anti-women's rights", and we are certainly not opposed to charity for the less fortunate. In the order listed, we believe there should be immigration reform, so long as the border is secured first. Illegal aliens in our country is not "immigration;" it is trespassing and an illegal invasion, many of which are violent criminals and many MANY of which are middle easterners. (And BTW, many of us really feel sorry for the "Dreamers," the people who were brought here as infants and had no say in the matter: They are really, sadly, "people without a country" and if a way of resolving their issue can be found that will not open the door to con-game artists taking advantage, most of us will probably support it.) "Anti-poor"? Not hardly! We think they should get out and go to work for a living and justify the air and space they are taking, and we think they should earn a living wage, but we think they should produce more than they earn so they can justify employment. That takes work and dedication to bettering oneself; it doesn't happen when you are paid for doing nothing with money robbed from someone who is working and has a family to support. Stop robbing business blind; stop setting minimum wages so high no one can afford to hire them, and let's get the economy going so the "poor" has a path to bettering themselves. "Anti-women's rights"? What have you been smoking? We believe fully in the right of women to THE SAME PAY AS MEN DOING THE SAME JOB. We also believe women have no right to murder their children any more than a man does. And we are incredibly in favor of charity as long as it is from the heart and not robbed at gunpoint or under threat of incarceration by a tyrannical government agency that has no Constitutional right to exist in the first place.
In other words, Ted: We believe in liberty and responsibility for all under the rule of law. We don't believe in being dictated to by a bunch of Adam Henries who believe more in buying votes than they believe in charity.
Our party treats the poor with a great deal of respect: Our party supports the principles our nation was founded upon, and those principles, made into the rule of law, resulted in an improvement in the living standard and personal liberty, personal sovereignty, of the average working man, woman, and child in this nation more than they had experienced in the previous 25 centuries. (quoted from the book "1900", describing the period of time from 1800 to 1900.) And then the banking cartels got their hooks into us again and in 1913 illegally and fraudulently robbed us of our monetary system in which workers received wealth for their labor instead of debt.
Oh, and BTW: Just because someone doesn't like communists who push their agenda by "necklacing" their political opponents (tying their hands behind their back, hanging a spare tire around their neck, pouring gasoline into it, and setting it alight) doesn't make them "racist" if the object of their scorn happens to be black.
The fact that you have never heard of them, Ted, is why you don't have a clue what your ideology, and its main messiah currently infesting our White House, really stand for.
If you think that was Saul Alinsky's philosophy, you are a bigger fool than I thought you were. Saul Alinsky's set forth his philosophy on the first page of his "Rules for Radicals": "What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."
Note he did not say "how to earn it," or "how to improve your life by establishing a work ethic," or "how to build a better mousetrap." No, he said "how to take it away." People who support the political ideology you support, Ted, are not people who want to produce anything, or enhance anyone's living standard, or improve the economy. They, like you, would rather "take it away" from those who do produce, who do enhance the living standard of all, who do improve the economy.
Maybe you should stop being so negative and start producing something people want, instead of supporting the robbery of everyone else so you can feel like a charitable person.
Oh, by the way: I don't know if Saul Alinsky was a Jew or not; I never thought about it and I don't care. But yes, I do hate what Commies stand for, because they stand for tyranny and oppression, and their ideology justified one of the major holocausts of around 20 million people, as well as the tyranny and oppression of many times that number. And here is one of their ideological slogans, from Vladimir Lenin himself (quoted, BTW, by Saul Alinsky): “They have the guns and therefore we are for peace and for reformation through the ballot. When we have the guns then it will be through the bullet."
You always leave yourself wide open, Ted: If you knew anything about history, you wouldn't be falling for every stupid "fresh idea" that has been tried before, sometimes dozens of times, and has always resulted in absolute tyranny and despotism. Your ideas are not "fresh;" they are as old as feudalism and their purpose is to restore the concept prevalent in the entire world prior to the American Revolution: The concept that "Kings govern by the Divine Right of Kings to Govern." We kicked that tyrannical concept out of our nation with extreme prejudice in 1776, Ted, but there are always those willing to sucker the low information types back into their clutches with promises of security in their old age, promises to bail them out with free this and free that when they make stupid life decisions and find out that stupidity has lifelong consequences. And they make those stupid life decisions because the consequences aren't important, almighty government, supported by the groaning taxpayer, will bail them out and make it all better. And before long those poor suckers find out that whoever the local party apparatchik may be, he owns them, body and soul, and if they don't like they way they are treated they can lay down their pickaxe and go talk to that jackbooted thug over there with the shotgun.
Your political ideology has consequences, Ted, you just have no understanding of how hard they are going to hit you, because you can't be bothered to learn about history.
