When I Pay Into Social Security

...it becomes a right. I know because I got that notice in the mail that gives me the breakdown of my work history and outlines what I will receive. It's pretty freaky looking at my life on a print out by the way.

"Entitlement" is such a loaded word and is a perfect fit for the Frank Luntz/Bill O'Reilly's of the GOP. They turn my social security, the greatest program ever implemented in our country and the bedrock of the New Deal into a dirty word.
