SSNs, Slogans, and Irony

My newborn daughter recently received in the mail her social security card, complete with a nine-digit number that she’ll have to memorize and recite for the rest of her life if she ever wants to have anything “official” completed. Given the chances that she’ll ever receive back any benefits that she’ll pay into the program (under the current setup) are slim, I found the following slogan on the back of the envelope more than a bit ironic:

“FOR THE TIMES THAT COUNT — COUNT ON SOCIAL SECURITY”

This gives me some hope, for at least the federal government is not spending our money hiring advertising firms to develop slogans for their programs…
