Warren Court(1953 - 1969, Pseudo Liberal Majority)
The Warren Court refers to the Supreme Court of the United States between 1953 and 1969, when Earl Warren served as Chief Justice. Warren led a liberal majority that used judicial power in dramatic fashion, to the consternation of conservative opponents. The Warren Court expanded civil rights, civil liberties, judicial power, and the federal power in dramatic ways.

You missed the point which is...according to the Supreme Court.... Congress can't arbitrarily refuse to pay Social Security.

<quoted text>You're misunderstanding those numbers which compare Vietnam era vets against the vets of other war eras and not against the general population.
It's basically an exercise in fun with numbers as the pre Vietnam legal system was much kinder and gentler and drugs weren't yet perceived as a problem. A lot of the stuff folks used to do for fun back in the "good old days" is a felony "now a days."
About 2.6 million Americans actually served in Vietnam, there were many many more that served during the so called Vietnam era.
No, I realize that this 2004 study done by the Bureau of Justice seemed significantly biased in that their point was to show that the Irag/Afghanistan vets were not really suffering so badly from PTSD as had their Vietnam compatriots who wracked up a one-in-five people(men?) in prison circa 1986. 2004? Just what is wrong with that year to analyze/compare the numbers of soldier convicts from different wars? Wonder what the stats on Civil War vets in the prison system would have been ten+ years out if such statistics had been kept.

Retard, how many times do you actually have to READ the actual report by the DOJ CLEARLY stating that negroes commit violent crime at a rate seven times higher per capita than the next two ethnicities combined (anglos & hispanics)?

Phony Scandals? Sarah Palin Brings Her “Redneck Whiteboard” To Fox News
It’s just fascinating to watch conservatives dumbing down their messages to their mentally challenged constituents. It started with Fox News deploying bright colors, hypnotic motion graphics, and game show sound effects. Then Glenn Beck devolved by eschewing modern electronics in favor of an old school blackboard. Then Karl Rove dug deeper by making use of a hand-held whiteboard. Now Palin sucker punches Rove with her redneck version, something even the most remedial Teabagger can understand. Obviously these people know their audience and, therefore, continually craft their communications to match their intellectual level (which is at about the 4th grade, according to the super-secret, exalted, conservative message masters).
I just wonder what’s next. Hand signals and a series of grunts?

I watched his supposed "beat-down" of O'reiley; not a single punch landed. One of his big points was that "black people go to prison for something as simple as marijuana possession at a rate four times higher than whites". Never mind including any stats on what other charges are included as mitigating factors in the sentencing (and the source was the "aclu", LMAO).
He then quotes a SINGLE nut researcher that studied crack babies and determined "poverty is a bigger influence than crack cocaine". You cant even attempt to reason with someone quoting something as bizarre and ludicrous as that.
I doubt that phag could tear open one of his boyfriends used condoms open to swill the spooge...
Hayes is overtly effeminate, put perhaps not homosexual.

The percentage of blacks in the prison population for violent crimes is essentially the same as the overall black prison population.

Drugs swell the prison population for both blacks and whites, but do not discriminate against blacks.

Excellent, that'd put an end to a whole bunch of counter-productive nonsense. Give them the Territory of South Florida, they seem fond of it. A lot could just stay there as they did for two thousand years before the establishment of the Nation of Israel.

What makes you think they would be welcomed here? After all, they don't welcome non-Jews...especially blacks.... to their "homeland". We have enough racists, we don't need more. Most Israeli Jews are victims of their radical zionist leadership which is unfortunate but they made their bed and it is up to them to adapt or return to the land from whence they came. I'm sure the United States, Russia, or Eastern Europe countries can make room for their ex-patriots if need be.

Property Rights: The Hidden Issue of Social Security Reform

By Charles E. Rounds Jr.

April 19, 2000

Executive Summary

One of the most enduring myths of Social Security is that a worker has a legal right to his Social Security benefits. Many workers assume that, if they pay Social Security taxes into the system, they have some sort of legal guarantee to the system’s benefits. The truth is exactly the opposite. It has long been law that there is no legal right to Social Security. In two important cases, Helvering v. Davis and Flemming v. Nestor, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Social Security taxes are simply taxes and convey no property or contractual rights to Social Security benefits.

As a result, a worker’s retirement security is entirely dependent on the political decisions of the president and Congress. Benefits may be reduced or even eliminated at any time. Given the program’s looming financial crisis, benefit cutbacks are increasingly likely. Therefore, the entirely political nature of Social Security places workers’ retirement security at considerable risk. Indeed, Congress has already arbitrarily reduced Social Security benefits of some groups of workers. Moreover, because Social Security benefits are not a worker’s property, they are not inheritable.

In contrast, a privatized Social Security system, based on individual accounts, would provide workers with the benefits and the safeguards of true ownership.
