Do you think the "BP oil fund" will be as safe and secure as the social security trust fund?
I sure hope so, we need that social security money and government is just the thing we need to protect it!

I hope so too. Social Security has benefitted so many people, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. An example of everybody benefitting from government programs.

The BP fund is private money and protected. I do hope some one is smart enough to invest it. Even if they just stick it in a saving account. It is safer that Social Security. Social security was robbed by Congress to pay for their pet projects. Congress claims it will repay that money. Of course they have already... More
