  •  Stealing from Seniors (0+ / 0-)

    "Stealing" is a concept where I overpower you and take money from your wallet.  I dont believe anyone is advocating overpowering Senior Citizens and taking their money.  

    I would advocate taking a look at ways to manage and change the system so there is not a huge problem later on.  At least studying the issue and developing ideas now would be a good idea.  

    I dont advocate ruling anything out just like I wouldnt advocate not raising taxes.

      you? Of course not...most stealing is done behind your back...

      Please focus your time on REAL problems.
      Advocate for more funding for schools, for more food stamps so people and children don't go to bed hungry.
      Advocate to stop these insane aggressive and illegal wars. Advocate to stop killing innocent women, children, men via evil drone attacks.
      Advocate to stop the Surveillance State that America has become and is not going to have a good outcome.
      Advocate to stop police from using illegal and dangerous crowd control to stifle legal civil disobedience guaranteed by the Constitution.
      Advocate to get corporate money out of the political arena.
      Advocate to pass a Constitutional amendment to end the corporations are persons bullshit.
      Advocate to your government to stop trashing the Constitutions

      These are REAL problems, SS is one of the most secure things we have, good until 2037 by any non-partisan account and NOT a problem...

      so why waste everybody's time on non-problems when there are so MANY REAL problems...

      The Universe is strange enough, you don't have to add hocus pocus

    •  Wrong, brother. (4+ / 0-)

      "Where I overpower you and take money from your wallet" is strong-arm robbery. That's a type of stealing. There are others. Some steal at the point of a gun, some steal in the dead of night and some steal with a pencil.

      The Republican motto: "There's been a lot of progress in this country over the last 75 years, and we've been against all of it."
