What makes this really interesting is that the president of the group is also the Republican county chairman and a very vocal supporter of privatizing social security. If he manages his private account like he's managed this fund, the 2% yield of the current SS system will start to look pretty good.


Now you're catching on. The privatized Social Security accounts will be guaranteed losers for investors, since it is welfare for financial industry companies. Never forget that they have already limited the upside of your return -- the highest proposed "allowable" return in a given year is 9 percent -- but the losing years are all yours.

You can't win a rigged game.
