Arm Chair Militias attack Social Security Surplus!!

The minutemen vigilante border patrol is fizzling out nicely. It’s kind of fun to watch these right wingnutters fall on their face while they also piss off everyone [the border patrol and local towns]. We have to give credit to the mainstream media for pumping up this spectacle. Let’s just hope no one gets hurt. Check out Marc Cooper's Blog for the story.

Speaking of illegal immigration…. It turns out illegal immigrants pay as much as 7 BILLION per year toward social security [yet as you know they draw no benefits]. which means they are hugely responsible for the solvency of social security. Furthermore a NY Times article states:

While it has been evident for years that illegal immigrants pay a variety of
taxes, the extent of their contributions to Social Security is striking: the
money added up to about 10 percent of last year's surplus - the difference
between what the system currently receives in payroll taxes and what it doles
out in pension benefits.
More then any republican scheme illegal immigrants are “bolstering” social security. I thought they were only responsible for cheap strawberry.
