    As a German I feel like I have to put some perspective into this…

    -

    Yes, it is morally wrong to send out those checks. But legally it is correct. These people were never convicted of a crime. Why that is so is a different question, but the fact remains. So they paid into SS and now they reap the benefits.

    -

    If you want to change that you may also arbitrarily withhold payments to Jews, or African Americans, or gays (who also did nothing wrong “prima face” – Latin for “by the looks of it”). Which would make you a Nazi because these guys really liked that kind of backhanded stuff. I rest my case – and that’s good because it became pretty heavy (Graucho Marx)…

    -

    Rule of law. Sometimes it sucks. Deal with it!

    I agree.

    If they paid in, and legally applied, they get the checks, period. If we discriminate on “political affiliations to the right” (hmm the guys complaining) then in the future how many sovereigns and TEA types will be cut off?

    It is sick to pay them but the law can’t cover everything.

    What do you mean right, Nazi stands for National Socialism. It was a strong powerful central government. Speak for yourself, just because you don’t want to see how bad your side can become, like attacks on Christians in this country today.

    Cut the crap. Christians are still in the majority. As a gay man, I can tell you first hand that it is “conservative” Christians who attack my rights. I’m not telling Christians that they’re perverts who shouldn’t be allowed to marry. I’m not leaving notes in Christians’ mailboxes telling them they are physically incapable of feeling love. I don’t have signs posted in my yard advocating changing the state constitution to ban Christians. That is what Christians have done to me. The only reason “conservative” Christians feel attacked is because they’re no longer being allowed to dominate over the rest of us.

    Ah, the semantic misdirection shows up on cue. Indeed, Hitler loved the left so much that he executed every leftist he could catch. I have to LOL at peopel who can’t read history but sure can listen to some Rush. I know, howza about some Hitler quotes? : 26 January 1932 to the Industry Club

    I am bound to say that private property can be morally and ethically justified only if I admit that men’s achievements are different. Only on that basis can I assert since men’s achievements are different, the results of those achievements are also different. But if the results of those achievements are different, then it is reasonable to leave to men the administration of those results to a corresponding degree. It would not be logical to entrust the administration of the result of an achievement which was bound up with a personality either to the next best but less capable person or to a community which, through the mere fact that it had not performed the achievement, has proved that it is not capable of administering the result of that achievement. Thus it must be admitted that in the economic sphere, from the start, in all branches men are not of equal value or of equal importance. And once this is admitted it is madness to say: in the economic sphere there are undoubtedly differences in value, but that is not true in the political sphere.

    Now tell us, oh WISE REPUBLICANS, just what in Hitlers statement there do you disagree with? Hmm? Because that sounds very very Reagan/Bush to me.

    I thought the right wing considers all those who receive Social Security to be simply “Takers” and “Leeches”? They’re real good at labeling, blaming, and stigmatizing, aren’t they?

    National Socialism was and is Reich Wing. Socialism by itself is generally Left Wing. An old canard created by the Reich Wing Think Tanks that really secretly love the Nazis, but none dare speak its name in the affirmative unlike in the 1930s.

    Good Grief! You are so far off here you are not even in the ball park!! The NAZI Party of Adolf Hitler as so far an extreme right wing group that they would make the present tea party types look positively liberal by comparison!! Hitler not only hated Jews, he also hated Communists, Socialists, Gypsies, Homosexuals, and anything even remotely liberal!! Just who do you think he had his goons killing anyway? How about all of the above (and then some)!!


    Please stop listening to right wing talk radio and its histrorical misinformation, and go to the library and read some actual historical books!! Do this for your own good, as you do not seem to be unintelligent, just misinformed.

    ^Then you also might point out that he came for the trade unionists before the Roma and Jews. I always get a laugh when righties try to brand Adolph as a “lefty”. Now his dictatorship supported by, and supporting, the corporate bosses like Krump, Bayer, Farben, that sounds very TEA familiar, like Koch in your Krump-ettes?

    Sorry, that’s actually Krupp, not Krump.
