Social Security, Disability benefits, and Veterans Pay would not, truly fall into that catagory, because the government has been collecting money all along for that exact purpose, from me and you, in the form of taxes. So, if and when you need it, you certainly should be able to have it back. I will however, keep them bundled together every time I speak of "entitlements", unless otherwise clarified. I do feel it is necessary, however, to understand that there is a huge difference.

KEEP PASSING THIS AROUND UNTIL EVERY ONE HAS HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO READ IT... THIS IS SURE SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!!!! THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH THE GOVERNMENT'S CALCULATION OF AVAILABLE SOCIAL SECURITY IS THEY FORGOT TO FIGURE IN THE PEOPLE WHO DIED BEFORE THEY EVER COLLECTED A SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK!!! WHERE DID THAT MONEY GO?
Now that's welfare!!! And they have the nerve to call my social security retirement payments entitlements?!?
Yet in the last few months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile and Turkey. And now Pakistan......home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS... if not TRILLIONS of DOLLARS are unaccounted for!!! ~~~~~~~
There is an intentional and very heinous force at work here intended to divide and conquer Americans.....
