Wow...a "best of" post led to the campfire board. Is it called "campfire" because they want to burn everything?

Evidently SS is a nanny-state program that assumes people can't take care of themselves. They were discussing mostly how it should be privatized, but I got the distinct impression they wouldn't mind if it were killed entirely.

I'm all for making some changes/reforms (especially on the withholding cap...there shouldn't be one). But these people clearly see the elderly that have to rely on SS as leeches. Equally clearly, they are all set for life so they won't need SS if it dies. (I'm betting the latter ain't true.)
