Yana Gupta and her plans

The item girl has some serious plans to further her career

Yana Gupta was last seen in Lara Dutta’s home-production, Chalo Dilli, where she did the Laila item song, a la Zeenat Aman. Since then,there has been a lot happening in her life beyond the typical Bollywood song and dance. Her first book, How to love your body and get the body you love, did find many takers and she is already planning to pen another book now. In a recent interview, Yana said, “The subject of my second book is a secret .I am planning a book that would have more detailed description of my life’s journey including the Bollywood bit amongst other things.” Wethinks it’s good that Yana is looking at alternate career options, after all, you cannot make a living out of item numbers, no?Subscribe to me on YouTube

    “The Khan Academy demonstrated that wehhetr the subject matter is online or not – that the content itself can be crap – as was the case with their SS content”While the Khan introduction to SS is certainly incomplete, it’s only intended as a brief overview, and nothing is covered in detail. What specific part did you find to be “crap”?You ignored my previous question, and I think it’s an important one, so I’ll repeat it here.”SS is now starting to pay out more than it takes in, and I explained how that shortage will be made up. Are you having any problem with that part?”Do you believe there is a trust fund?Do you believe it holds $2.4 trillion in non-marketable IOUs?Do you believe the IOUs will from now on, be needed to make up the shortfall between contributions and benefits?Do you believe the redemption of those IOUs requires borrowing money that will be paid back by future taxpayers? If you disagree with any of the above, please explain why.When you write about easily fixing SS you are speaking only of numbers without considering the people for whom those numbers are important.While numbers can easily be changed at any time, real people are seriously affected by any changes.Current workers are forced to contribute 12.4% of earned income to the program wehhetr they want to or not, and they receive an annual statement estimating their future benefit, based on their current and estimated future contributions.While they understand that it is a pay-as-you-go system, and that they are supporting current retirees, they expect to be similarly supported when THEY retire.You would tell them, without blinking, that what they expect is no longer possible, and that while they will be required to continue their current level of contributions, or perhaps pay even more, they can expect only 75% of what they have up till now been promised, and even that is only if all goes well. It’s possible that their benefits will be even lower.Do you think workers will meekly just roll over for such a disappointing turn of events, or will there be rioting as there was in Greece when workers were told their benefits would be decreased?The issue isn’t wehhetr contributions and benefits can be changed by royal edict, it’s wehhetr people deeply and personally affected by such a change will accept it.How many Congressmen can you imagine allowing future benefits to be reduced to match contributions once the trust fund runs out? If you can’t think of one, then you can see what the problem is, and why it hasn’t been fixed already. To fix SS is to commit political suicide.
