Hubby and I are both 52 and have not believed we will ever see anything from social security since the late 80s. We planned accordingly so that any amount of social security we may collect will be gravy and left for our kids and future grand kids. Anyone our age or younger needs to plan to be self sufficient without counting on government assistance in our retirement years. We also have an autistic son that we need to provide with financial security and backup so that he is never dependent on the whims and vagaries of government bureaucracies.

Also using federal agencies to harass his political adversaries... He has weaponised the IRS and other agencies illegally.
That close vote wasn't as close as you would think. Over 100 workers didn't vote either way...
There is also the problem of formerly erradicated diseases being brought to this country from Africa and from south of the border.
Sorry should read: we should not pass anything
With the way Obama has behaved with regard to both immigration and Obamacare we should pass anything because no matter how the statute is written there is no way for anyone to know how Obama would "interpret" the law. If he can arbitrarily move statutory dates that are clear and exact to whenever he pleases from one day to the next, how then could we know that he won't arbitrarily move immigration dates and other details???
Did you not get the irony of the NAACP holding a protest over voter ID laws and requiring all attendees to carry valid photo IDs???

Agreed!
In the seventies when I was in school, global cooling was indeed being pushed. Even in Texas, it was in the classroom and not just in science classes. It was in our required literature as well. Not to mention it was pushed as a theory in the Times in the early 1900s too. It is always the same with the left. Create a "crisis", promote panic and then attempt to force their "solution" to their "crisis". In the seventies, it was global cooling and a coming ice age from which we were all going to die. In the nineties, it was global warming and melting polar ice causing massive flooding of coastal regions and we are all going to die. Don't fall for their fake crisis especially when their models never pan out.
