In response to the above about social security being welfare, and "My, how
times have changed!"  I wish to reply that Social Security is not welfare
in my case.  I was told by the federal government that I would contribute
to social security from my wages, and I had no choice.  My employer was
ordered/forced under penalty of law to take part of my salary add his
contribution to it and send it to the federal government.  So, what I have
worked for, what I have paid for, is not welfare.  I am not ashamed to
accept the monthly social security check; through it my wife and I have a
measure of independence from actual welfare.  Sincerely, Jim.
