Speakout: May 25, 2013

Banner

I noticed recently the librarians displayed a banner: “Electi Director Novum,” with white smoke. It is bad Latin and should’ve read, “Habemus Directrix,” since the new director is female.

 

Seniors

To the person stating senior citizens will bankrupt youth: Don’t you know seniors paid into the program? Some still pay. Last year, there was a surplus in SS, and government took it. As long as that goes on, of course the program will be broke.

 

Blame

I’m tired of these people that blame the older folks for the problems with Social Security. The problem is with our Congress. If they would pay back what they have “borrowed,” they would have enough money for years.
