This is an excerpt from The eBook I have talked about, and gives an idea of the type of information to be found there.
How many of you have a Social Security Number? Why? I don’t, and I would never dream of having one (I did at one time, of course). Are you aware that the first Social Security Numbers (they weren’t called that then, but were 9 digit identification numbers) were issued in the 1870s--to black slaves registering as citizens of the United States?
And how many of you believe that Social Security is only in the United States? Perhaps you should read the following, and judge for yourself what the truth is about the insolvency of the scheme.

The easy-to-use search screens include a number of fields which are completed by choosing a variable from the lists provided as well as a free text field. This combination of variable lists and free text allow even occasional users to make sophisticated searches with little or no assistance. The infobases are updated monthly.
Currently the service is available only in English. The French, Spanish and German versions will be available soon.
