‘David’s Discourse’


Social Security Life Span

With all of the debate and mud-slinging going on in DC about the impending financial crisis, and the possibility of the good old USA defaulting on it’s debt servicing, I wonder how long our system of protecting our aged and less than affluent citizens will survive? Social Security has been around for all of we baby boomers’ lifetimes! It is one of the things that we always thought we could count on, like death and taxes, and the real possibility that our children might realize that we do possess a modicum of intelligence when they age just a bit. But now, it seems like both the Democrats and Republicans could seriously consider altering the one stop gap to dire poverty that many of our Senior Adults have left. Prayer could help, and letting your govenrmental representatives know how you feel. There is power in numbers. Thanks for caring. -dg
