    And now for something so completely out of left field it should almost go in the weird news section...

    Civility and honesty (thus far) in an election.

    Editorial: Brown-Warren pact should serve as model | masslive.com

    T
    he plan is brilliant in its simplicity: If a third-party ad is run in violation of the pact, the candidate who would benefit from the ad has to pay to
    charity
    an amount equal to half the cost of the advertisement. In other words, efforts to aid one candidate end up hitting him or her in the wallet

    Bullshit. There is no last tier of investors in social security.

    The last tier is whoever gets hit with the austerity.

    It's just a very organized liquidation of the leftover seized assets over an annuity that is continued until death, to be controlled by the originators of the scheme. To be continued...

    Again, no one is getting washed. My point is that you should never need cut it in the name of austerity.

    It's pay-as-you go. Current contributions pay for current payouts in current dollars.
