    Pretty sure it was the original post that did that. Although I suppose it could be argued you did, when in the other thread you suggested Sanders calling the president the most dangerous in history contributed to a gunman attacking the congressional GOP baseball team.

    The young man had met Giffords and was infatuated with her long before Palin's ad. The media and the left ran with this blame game until it was shown that he was a nut who was obsessed with Giffords.

    Definitely a nut. Honestly, he reminds me of someone around here.

    Actually I asked a question; one you seem incapable of answering. I assume because the honest answer would paint your boy in a bad light.

    He was either wrong then and was trying to use the Giffords tragedy for his own political gain or he was right then and part of the problem now.

    This has to be done. People are living too long to be on social security for half their adult life.

    Most folks I know plan on working into their 70's anyway but making it actual law would be the right thing to do.

    Exactly. If they had indexed the retirement age to life expectancy when they created Social Security, the retirement age today would be 74 and we'd have no social security problem.

    May ultimately need to be higher than that to be honest. When SS was created, most people died before even reaching the retirement age. Now almost everyone lives several years beyond it.

    The projections I've seen have shown that will fix the problem for a long time

    No, but if you aren't in full retirement there is a clawback

    Moving SS to 70 is entirely reasonable. I know some folks will raise hell, but a 70 year old is better off than a 65 year old was several years ago.

    You'll still have the option to take it at 66, you will just have to take a reduced payment.

    I answered the question I saw. I didn't realize what you just quoted was a question and not a rhetorical device. I am not trying to be pedantic, but there wasn't a question mark.

    I do believe rhetoric is partly to blame and Sanders is part of that. Singling him out as the most noteworthy offender is just not accurate. I think I have been consistent on that both in this and the original thread.

    His first words?

    I feel like a kid gets to say whatever they need to in the moments after a shot to the land down under. It's truth serum, hard to filter anything before it is coming out of your mouth. Nobody wants to hear a 10 year old drop an eff bomb, but damn.

    I believe that the true danger of conflict lies not only in the possibility for bias and personal bent, but that such can be unforeseen and undetectable, but beyond that which the subject themselves or those around them can fully mitigate or are even aware of. Simply, the nature of conflict is both real and can occur, both when seen and even despite our best and most sincere efforts to prevent it. And, it is also entirely true that many mistakes are possible - and are often made - in trying to combat the appearance of conflict, but which may be equally errant and just as concerning.

    I believe that the likely possibility of any reasonable appearance of conflict should compel Mueller's recusal. I further believe that his relationship with James Comey represents both an actual and important conflict, and should prompt his recusal or replacement.

    I have sincere and reasonable doubts about his ability to produce or reach any fair conclusions, and that any on either side will each be able to cry "conflict!", "witch hunt!" or "rigged!" - and such will be both immediately and reasonably alleged - no matter what conclusions he reaches, whether to condemn or exonerate Trump or anyone else, is only so much proof positive that a conflict does exist, and which should be remedied with his refusal.

    If any wish to think that Mueller's involvement will be the move that "gets Trump"...be careful what you wish for, and understand the inherent difficulty of foretelling every twist and turn that may take. If Trump has committed any wrongdoing, be careful that he isn't turned into - or has room to form a reasonable argument - which makes him into a martyr, or even a sympathetic figure.

    The Court of Public Opinion is a fickle beast.

    In fact I picked 3 mods to make it hard for any one person to be picked upon by a mod. One liberal, one moderate and one conservative.

    Phase it out. Its not an enumerated function of government anyway. Phase out should begin with 20 year olds at the time the phase out is instituted. The general fund owes it to the current people as its full of IOUs.

    Really? The asylum was granted to Cubans due to political persecution. Most South Americans are just poor and thats not a good enough reason. As for Syrians if they are Druze, Christian or Kurd then I would say ok because those are the persecuted groups. If they are a non-Kurdish Sunni, Shia or Allowite males then no way. Maybe females and males under 12.
