Yeah Right cut the PEOPLES DEBT

Yeah Right cut the PEOPLES DEBT you know that word called SSI the one you the goverment wants to call entitlement. Its a debt for which people like Susan Collins like the term entitlement which downplays that it is a debt owed the people. Susan Collins would rather default on your debt payed for and owed like any other bond than the bond to countries like China or Wall Street. Susan Collins is ANTI-SSI ANTI AMERICAN AND PRO CHINA!!! And look at the cost of these Eggs they want to cut your retirement so they can roll some of the most expensive eggs I have ever seen. What A Waste. Calling SSI an entitlement will soon very soon have serious political backlash to the republicians. SSI IS NOT AN ETITLEMENT IT IS A DEBT TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE PERIOD!!!!! looking for ways to bilk people out of their retirement is criminal while you try to increase the age what your tying to do is steal monies owed for people who have payed into the system with a promise that when you retire at 65 opps rayfart changed that to 68 stealing millions from us now another republican wants to steal from us again do sit there do something.

Made in USA

That is great that this President and others uses an American company for a product. It would behoove all consumers to do the same and buy Made in USA.

Then most of those cheap, sweat shops, child labor industries would be shutdown and work can come back to the USA for products made with pride and worth be reestablished.

I always make it a point to see where it is made and buy American before buying any cheap shit made from China.
