If New Leftists insist on an open border there will be no further need for a single America.

    You also know that in the same executive order, Ford made it illegal to leak classified information. Whatcha got to say about that part? Or, do you still consider illegally leaking classified docs as free speech?

    BTW, the order says, "political assassination". It wouldn't be illegal to kill Assange.

    It's their money. So, IOW, if the government is going to make people pay into social security, with the promise that they can get it back when they reach a certain age, then by god, they should get it back.

    I was onboard, right up to this point.

    That's great in theory but the problem is that the government often spends that money on other stuff. Politicians only worry about being elected now, not what happens to the voters 30 years down the road.

    I pay into the system but I'd be crazy to think that it would be there when its time to collect. If it's there great. If not then I'm ready. It's too important an impact on our lives to be left to the whims of politicians.

    Why people trust politicians to do look after their health, their old age, their schooling, or even delivering a letter, knowing that they tend to lie and cheat, has always been something of a mystery to me.

    I agree, which is why it wouldn't bother me at all, if the government scrapped SS and I didn't have to take money out of my pocket to pay into it.

    Either the Tea Party gets on board the bus, or it gets thrown under the bus.

    NY Times science writer refused to post the ClimateGate documents online, but the NYT has no problems posting US State Dept docs online. Does anyone else see what's wrong with this picture????
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
