Response to psychmommy (Reply #71)

Wed Jul 6, 2016, 01:08 PM

72. I'm involved in an FDR discussion in GD

My interest - I make enough each year that I stop paying at the end of Q2 into SSDI.

My stake - will my targeted monthly payments be there when I'm older?

Will Fed Gov allow me to keep the current targeted monthly return - if they stop the stupid practice of stopping the collection at $118,500?

Will Fed Gov then make a targeted effort to make up the unfair and unequal wages our senior (of all races) women made?


I need DETAILS. See out there - someone is asking in ALL CAPS for explicit reasons as to why we wouldn't trust the dominant culture to vote these concepts into reality with an equal application to all. I need specific ways that previously ignored individuals will get their just rewards in this country.


I'm trying to wrap my head around - a bunch of people who fucked America up (that's all I've read, heard seen from the far left and far right in this country for about three years) -

Asking me to trust them to not fuck up again.

That's like asking me to hire a bank robber to be a bank teller. Only a fool would believe.

So what are my interests -

Black.
Affluent.
Work in Corporate America.
Married to a foreigner so now have dual citizenship (need the ability to move freely among countries).


What are you asking me to vote for? What are my interests?
