    Social Security is a legalized Ponzi scheme, big difference.

    Don't get me started on Social Security, you will get an earful (more accurately as it is a web forum, eyefull, but that doesn't sound right).

    It really has to be addressed as life expectancy expands, labor participation is lower on a secular basis, interest rates only have one direction to go up, and most fail to realize global population is likely to peak in the next 10-15 years then slowly decline. None of the models take that into account in regard to slower growth and a narrowing of the age pyramid. It can be fixed with reasonable changes but do nothing is simply not an option

    It was partially their fault. They let the banks do whatever the hell they wanted and created a lending environment destined for collapse.

    I get the importance of it in 1933 but now I’d agree with you. If you didn’t save any sort of money ALL your life, then money is going to be the least of your worries. $40 bucks every check for 30 years is something damn near everyone should do and more if you can afford it.

    "Racist" Trump Supporters Should Lose Their Vote, Says NBC. Guess Who Decides They're "Racist"?

    Once again, the mainstream media is pushing the repugnant race card, suggesting that Trump supporters are a bunch of knuckle-dragging xenophobes whose only reason for wanting a wall on the Mexican border is because they suffer an aversion to people with different skin color than them.

    Conn. Democrats propose new state police department to combat 'far-right' extremism

    By Jessica Chasmar - The Washington Times - Friday, January 24, 2020




    Connecticut Democrats in the state’s Senate have proposed creating a new state police department that would be tasked with specifically combating “far-right” extremism.

    The proposal, which was unveiled Wednesday as part of the state Senate Democrats’ “A Just Connecticut” agenda, would publicly fund a new state police department that specializes in investigating “far-right extremist groups and individuals,” according to a news release.

    Senate President Pro Tem Martin Looney said the proposal is aimed at combating “potential” hate crimes but stressed that his caucus has no intention of persecuting people for their political beliefs, the Hartford Courant reported.


    “Unfortunately, people who entertain hateful beliefs … are protected as long as [those beliefs] don’t result in hate-crime actions. That’s what we’re talking about,” Mr. Looney told reporters Wednesday. “We want to be more aggressive in enforcing our laws and identifying likely sources of potential domestic terrorism acts against religious institutions and ethnic institutions.”

    Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano, a Republican, said there is “strong bipartisan support against any type of terrorism” but he took issue with the proposal only mentioning right-wing extremism.


    “When they put a right-wing label on extremism, they do that to elicit a political response,” he said, the Hartford Courant reported.

    PJ Media noted that federal authorities in recent years classified activities by antifa, the left-wing militant movement, as “domestic terrorist violence.”

    Total hunch but I think Klobuchar surprises and gets 12% in Iowa and Wareen is similar in a surprise. This likely guarantees Warren win, but just a bunch as I think awarrens message on woman is well received but her ego and attacks are repelled. That should create voter movement to Klobuchar who has a great ground game. Warren has a great event staff but bad ground and advance teams

    Classy. Funny how the same conduct directed at them always hurts their feelings somehow and causes a major stink.

    NYT: “IOWA SHOULD NEVER GO FIRST,” IT’S “AMONG THE COUNTRY’S WHITEST STATES”

    “We’re better than the rest of you, and we deserve special treatment forever” sounds like a perfect summation of the core beliefs of everyone who works at the New York Times.

    New York Times columnist and Yale grad David Leonhardt is sick and tired of rural folks in Iowa with “white privilege” oppressing coastal elites like himself by having a say in how the country is run.
