I could not agree more. Never the less the government has the power to secure the future of Social Security or end it by doing nothing. There is a heafty surplus right now, but it will be depleted by 2035. See attached SSA report.

SS is a critical program for millions of Americans as you have noted. It just needs a few tweeks to keep it viable. The simplest fix is removing the cap on payments into the program. The cap is currently set at $147,000. Why anyone needs a built in tax break on income over $147,000 is beyond my comprehension. Removing the cap fixes the program overnight. Most people never reach that lofty wage, those that do would hardly notice the difference.

There's suposed to be a pretty good computer museum in San Jose, CA but I never been to it.

The Apple IIGS was a cool little computer with a mouse and networking capability. They could be networked together with Apple Talk and simple phone net connectors. I used one of the early Macs as my classroom server so the kids never had to go back to the same computer to retreive their work. That led to my first Linux server that could talk to both PCs and Macs.
