Social Security’s Sham Guarantee
How many times during the recent debate over Social Security reform have you heard someone refer to Social Security’s “guaranteed benefit”? The AARP says “Social Security is the guaranteed part of your retirement plan.” Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leader in the House, touts the system’s “guaranteed retirement benefit.” The liberal activist group , headed by former Clinton chief of staff Harold Ickes, is running ads calling Social Security “a guarantee you earned.”
But Social Security benefits are not guaranteed.
They are not guaranteed legally because workers have no contractual or property rights to any benefits whatsoever. In two landmark cases, Flemming v. Nestor and Helvering v. Davis, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Social Security taxes are not contributions or savings, but simply taxes, and that Social Security benefits are simply a government spending program, no different than, say, farm price supports. Congress and the president may change, reduce, or even eliminate benefits at any time.

Where are those oil subsidies you lie about?
Tell us about those oil subsidies that don't exist.
Then, tell us why Obama ordered everyone to sit still while he watched Al Qaeda kill Americans on the live video feed.
Then, tell us why Obama lied for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States.
Then, tell us where the money will come from to pay for Obama's govenment.
Then, tell us how the f**k someone like Obama can be put on the faculty of the University of Chicago Law School teaching Constitutional Law when he'd never passed the bar or ever even seen the inside of a court room as a lawyer, and if you listen to him and whatch what he does, he has never even read the Constitution in his life.

The three largest fossil fuel subsidies were:
Foreign tax credit ($15.3 billion)
Credit for production of non-conventional fuels ($14.1 billion)
Oil and Gas exploration and development expensing ($7.1 billion)
The three largest renewable fuel subsidies were:
Alcohol Credit for Fuel Excise Tax ($11.6 billion)
Renewable Electricity Production Credit ($5.2 billion)
Corn-Based Ethanol ($5.0 billion)
""According to the OECD, subsidies supporting fossil fuels, particularly coal and oil, represent greater threats to the environment than subsidies to renewable energy. Subsidies to nuclear power contribute to unique environmental and safety issues, related mostly to the risk of high-level environmental damage, although nuclear power contributes positively to the environment in the areas of air pollution and climate change. Subsidies to renewable energy are generally considered more environmentally beneficial, although the full range of environmental effects should be taken into account.""
"Foreign tax credit" sounds like something available to all industries, as well as individuals on their tax returns.

"Credit for production of non-conventional fuels" sounds like green energy program.

All businesses expense R&D costs.

McCain and Graham prepare to quit fighting Hagel and move on to their next hissy fit

The McCain-Graham relationship on this one is, as Politico paints it, its own little Greek tragedy in the making: McCain was reportedly planning to vote for Hagel until Graham prevailed on him to join the filibuster.

By reversing himself, McCain effectively sacrificed his own credibility to buy Graham more time to continue his campaign against Hagel—an issue that plays to Graham’s advantage as he prepares to run for reelection in 2014.
“This is just a bone thrown to Lindsey Graham, who keeps painting himself into corners and then pleading with friends to crawl in there with him in a vain attempt to save a little face,” one Republican insider told POLITICO.

Government employees, except for the military, do not contribute anything of value, so quality is not an issue.

The unprecedented filibuster of Hagel makes an absolute mockery of the watered down filibuster reform the Senate agreed to less than a month ago, an outcome that was entirely predictable. It also demonstrates how much of an opportunity Senate Democrats let slip away. Majority Leader Harry Reid said this filibuster is "tragic."

"It is tragic that they have decided to filibuster this qualified nominee," said Reid. "It is really unfortunate." [...]
"This isn't high school getting ready for a football game, or some play being produced at a high school," said Reid. "In less than two hours, our country will be without a secretary of defense."
That's Reid's first—and biggest—mistake. It's hard to believe that he hasn't realized by now that the governing of the nation absolutely is a game for Republicans. Maybe this episode will be enough to finally convince him otherwise. Just in case, let's make it very clear for him: It's time to revisit real filibuster reform.

Tiger Woods actually did f*ck those women. Obama did not f*ck this country, it was already F*cked by Bush & the Republicans before he took office.
Tiger's personal life is not of interest to me, only his golf game.

Likewise, Obama's homosexuality is not the reason that he is a lousy president.

A sampling of rightwingers er Nascar fans comments on regarding Danica winning the pole -
'That's the wrong pole she should be working. Get her off the track. Go back to you know- taking off your clothes.'
'She'll crash in the twins on Thur, Back of the pack on Sun'
'She's on the pole yey. Now if she doesn't finish in the top 10 then stop putting the cameras in her face so she can blame the other drivers for her inabilaty to drive a nascar.'
'You actually want us to believe that Johnson,Gordon, Earnhart or Kahne didn't have enough car to beat "Ms. Wonderful". How much "palm greasing" has been going on over the past 3 months. Talk about a kick in the groin. I host a Daytona party every year for family, friends and fellow racers.We do a driver "blind draw" for a buck and the person with the winning drivers name gets $42.00 and the last place person gets their buck back as a consolation prize. I guess for this year I will add the " On what lap will she cause the BIG ONE". She will take out some great cars and the race will become a drag having to listen to her whining the rest of the race about how "They were rubbing all over me".'
'I think it is a set up. I don't expect her to be any better than20th by the end of the first lap.'
Winning a Daytona pole position is the equivalent of winning many of the actual NASCAR races. BTW she will start on the pole next Sunday regardless of her finish in the twins and Gordon will be beside her as #1 and #2 are "earned" during the qualifying session.

The term pole position was coined long before anyone anticipated female jockeys or drivers. Still humorous though.

The new "ghost car" visual feature clearly showed that Danica chose the perfect line besting the few others that had equal cars.

She's a tough little chick__and gracious.

<quoted text> You know as well as I what the cultural differences is. Racism! Blacks can do the same exact law violation as white kids & while the white kid gets a slap on the wrist, the black kid is literally crucified. I've seen it with my own eyes. Why do you think laws had to be passed on racial profiling? Why do you think there was a need for affirmative action? Even tho it never worked! You ask what cultural differences, it imbedded in thee American cultural to keep young black males down & in the system which keeps the mother & children of the black family dependant on the gov't. Heres an instance. A black youth is convicted of drug possession & sentenced to 10yrs in prison fort a victamless crime. Meanwhile a white youth is convicted of identity theft & managing to blow sometimes life savings, he gets 1yr time served & 3yrs probation. Where's thee justice in that? If you or anyone can ignore Americas racial discrimination against blacks in America. Chanced are your really not American!
