  • Social Security not takes in less money than it pays out – insolvency has begun
  • Is Alan Sloan right, is a social security bail out next
  • The economic geniuses say screw the deficit grow the economy – WTF!

Episode-373- News Events from Listeners

Rather than a typical listener question show today I decided to bring together 5 news events that were sent in by various listeners.  The first one is not that obvious as to why it applies to the other four but I bring them all together at the end.  We also bring in a recent 5 minute speech from Congressmen Ron Paul today.

Join me today as we discuss…
