Re: Democrat and wzambon Hyprocracy

If our leader and Hillary profess they are gone and not available then how would someone else find them?

Indeed - which would make his comments pointless and foolhardy.

Which suggests that he meant them as most commentators [more]

How could anyone actively ask for that to be done in a different time frame? A time frame that has passed.

Re: Democrat and wzambon Hyprocracy

No problem is the conversations over heard are from the Secretary of State though, Right?

That would be a problem - which is why openly hoping that the Russians successfully accomplished it is inappropriate.

Not necessarily. You can marry someone who works, and never work at a paid job and still collect SS.

It's not insurmountable, but I don't think you can just pull a bus up to the unemployment office, pile everyone in, bus them to a cobblestone road and tell them to fix it (which was implied, but not stated). It's not that easy. There [more]

Re: Al was right

With SS, we decided we didn't want seniors to live in poverty and squalor, eating cat food (or so they tell me). Why would it be acceptable to let anyone else live that way?

Re: Al was right

But that's the fallacy right there. That work is NOT unpaid. The payment is deferred and comes in the form of higher income later that MORE than makes up for time.

It is unpaid. There are pecuniary benefits that flow from it, but [more]

Re: Al was right

I agree, which is why it is probably necessary to make that extra 2-years of college training/education a norm, like completing high school is today. Make it mandatory and people will delay marriage and starting households.

Keep in mind that the goal doesn't need to be a traditional college degree. The goal is sufficient secondary training/education to be able to make a middle class economic contribution.
