Every business has its frustrations and the people involved occasionally need to let off some stream. That said, it is never wise to rant and rave or otherwise speak too candidly. So, I won't. But that does not mean I cannot recommend you to somebody who did.
The Persistence of Myth
Thomas Margenau just published a very nice column in which he addresses many of the most persistent myths about Social Security. In particular, Margenau responds to claims that all the wrong people are getting Social Security benefits. With a good bit of wit, Margenau tackles the idea that "gold-digging wives" and government employees and people who only
worked a short period of time are the real drain on Social Security. Naturally, Margenau also faced the assertion that it was those claimants getting Social Security disability who are killing the system. Oddly, there is no mention in the column about illegal aliens collecting benefits. Maybe I put that one to bed already.
Why Don't You Take This Rant And I Will Get The Next One?
This column is well worth reading. It is informative and amusing. Even better, it provides the rant hiding inside of a certain disability lawyer, saving him from having to say all this himself.
Did Margenau convince you? Still think the system is rigged? Have your own solution? Let me know about this or anything else.
