This is the morning when some of us meet at Eggberts for breakfast. The past two breakfasts I attended, my food was cold. Today I will tell the waitress and ask her to be sure my food is hot..or I will not be coming anymore. I can't see paying for cold food...especially breakfast.
I slept like a log last night. I stayed in bed until 5:30 this morning too. I have fed Missy and given her fresh water. I also had a cup of Chia. I will have my coffee at the restaurant.
This is the revised pie chart provided by politifact which includes social security. My contention is social security is self funded. Those of us who worked all our lives, paid into it and funded our retirement. If the past governments had not dipped into it continually to pay for other programs including the Vietnam war, there would be plenty of money in the fund. And think of all the benefits that are not being paid because the supposed recipients are deceased.
There has never been any change in the way the Social Security program
is financed or the way that
Social Security payroll taxes are used by the federal government. This
question comes from a confusion about the way the Social Security Trust
Fund is treated in federal budget accounting.
Starting in 1969 (due to
action by the Johnson Administration in
1968) the transactions to the Trust Fund were included in what is known
as the "unified budget." This is sometimes described by saying that the
Social Security Trust Funds are "on-budget." This budget treatment of
the Social Security Trust Fund continued
until 1990 when the Trust Funds were again taken "off-budget." But
whether the Trust Funds are "on-budget" or "off-budget" is primarily a
question of accounting practices--it has no effect on the actual
operations of the Trust Fund itself.
This different pie chart can be found on politifact.com.
I also have something to say about the charges against Bill Cosby. I don't justify his actions by any means but I also say the women did not need to go to his private home/room and subject themselves to the chance for abuse. They knew they were at risk when they took the pills he gave them and then drank wine. Give me a break! All women can use their own common sense about putting themselves at risk with a stranger...regardless of how famous that person is.
The breakfast was cold again and this time I told the waitress about it. She took it back to the kitchen and had it warmed up.
I went out to Walmart afterward and bought $40.00 something worth of groceries. Then I came home and warmed up the cornbread and beans. Bob came over and we ate those and the other french vanilla pudding and the last two cookies. I need to bake cookies again.
More even later....
I read all afternoon and then later on Bob came by to watch the news. He left at 7:00. He is fighting a bad cold.
I took my bath and watched TV for awhile before going on to bed.
