Obama attempt at calm?

Afraid

Obama isn’t exactly inspiring confidence.  Even listening to his rambling you’d think it was a middle schooler trying to convince classmates that he’s the right man for class presidency, complete with plenty of “ums and uhs” to fully sell his commitment.   Middle school students basically just wanted free stuff so maybe that’s his target audience, or democrats.  Although, we’re sure there’s an army of unicorns just around the corner that Obama’s preparing to unleash on the unsuspecting bad-guys-with-good-media-skills ISIS.

Looking forward to Social Security at about the time I’m bouncing great great grandkids on my knee.

A few things worth considering related to Social Security, especially if you’re a few years away from retirement….

In 2015, $900 billion was spent on social security.

In 2005, $530 billion was spent on social security.

The work force has dropped 4.5% since 2000.

We’ve nearly doubled Social Security expenditures in 10 years and simultaneously seen a drop in the work force that funds it.  Key the dramatic Michael-Meyers-is-behind-the-bedroom-door music folks ’cause we’re looking at trouble.

In spite of our borrow and spend mentality – by Congress that is – it’s actually illegal for the country to borrow money to keep Social Security in the black.  Huh?  “Does not compute” you say.  “I thought that’s how we solved all of our problems.”  Sorry folks, time to be grown ups.

Whatever the answer, it’s quite likely that by the year 2030, Social Security will look very different than it does today.   The primary differences will be in who gets it and when eligibility kicks in.  So if you won’t be retiring for a few years, your financial planning should likely not include Social Security.  Oh and one more thing, along the way the government will be dipping into your pockets to start paying back the 10’s of trillions of dollars of debt.

 

Clinton plays the less-than-cool prom queen wannabe. Laughing inappropriately, better known as Hillary Hilarity

Hillary Hilarity

Ever notice how some people, being so desperate to fit in with the cool kids, suddenly display a knack for laughing at inappropriate times.  Hillary seems to fall squarely in that category, a common trait for homely girls in high school trying to garner some minor level of popularity but only ending up tripping over their shoe laces and falling face first into jello salad.

But at least Hillary wouldn’t stoop so far as to resort to a wig, no matter how symbolic that would be of her phony attempts at improving her popularity or her acceptance as one of the cool kids.
