Jefferson County (Birmingham) Alabama shutting down services/gov buildings
Alabama County Set to Halt Services, Shut Buildings

June 5 (Bloomberg) -- Alabama’s most populous county is preparing to stop road maintenance, close courthouses and shutter services for the elderly after a court struck down taxes that pay for about 35 percent of its budget.

Jefferson County, which includes Birmingham, released a plan to cut $52 million from its budget as it appeals the ruling against its business and occupational taxes to the Alabama Supreme Court. Without that revenue, the county has said it is at risk of running out of money as soon as this month.

Coming to a city near you really soon , Very surprised that they start the shutdowns so soon as in before the 2010 elections . There is going to be much unrest in this nation and the services promised will not be there when they are needed the most .

The best one yet has been that now they claim Social Security is an entitlement program and not meant for retirement and only for insurance . Give me a break , You pay your whole life and they pull the rug out , Many of us will never see a dime we paid into the system , It is the larges Ponzi Scheme ever devised.

When first created it was put out to the population as a savings program and you could opt out , Then the laws changed and then mandated you must contribute . When Social Security actually started to turn a profit , The Democrats , Yes the Democrats passed Legislation allowing them to loot the extra amounts collected making the system a more pay as you go and putting nifty little IOU's in the vaults .

But think as you will but some of us historians whom know the truth and history of the program know better

some of us are also old enough to have a older type of Social Security card that states your number will never be used legally for anything other then the purpose of the Social Security program .

Try to take out a loan , Try to get a Phone , Try to get electric , Nothing in this day can be done without that number.

Is alabama like florida continuing to plant trees and other bs pending. Tell them to cut those things first. Also would not mind if the first cut fl made was taking away medicaid and welfare to illegals. Many around here get welfare and then work for cash. Maids make as much as 20 dollars an hr tax free
