<quoted text> (Money Magazine)
Peter Diamond, professor of economics, emeritus, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and recipient of the 2010 Nobel Prize in economics, answers the big question of how to fix Social Security.
Can we save Social Security?
Yes, Social Security can be fixed. There's a long-term deficit problem, but it's far from a crisis yet. Projections show the trust fund will run out of money by 2033. At that point everyone's benefits would have to be cut by 25% if nothing is done.
But it won't go to zero -- there would still be enough money to pay remaining benefits for years to come. Still, this is a great time to fix Social Security precisely because we might do better if there isn't a crisis.(cont.)

I object to Obama's apparent concession to the chained CPI, and the article addresses that issue as well.
I don't object to the concession and read your article.. COLA don't mean that much to me if it will help save the program for future generations.. You had a fit the payroll tax holiday expired when it was robbing SS of 120 million a year.. I am glad it expired and would support a 2.66 increase like your article stated..

"Your plan is nearly 10 years old. Would it still work?
Yes, but the deficits have grown about 40% over the last decade, so fixes would have to be larger and kick in more quickly.[The Social Security Administration said this year that immediately raising the payroll tax 2.66 percentage points could repair the program.]"

You should look back on this thread and others as to how Rico Doctored it up too. When the news first came out Rico claimed a White guy killed a Black kid. Fact!

Though Rico did some of his azzinine accusations under many of his socks.

Thomas Jefferson’s Quran: How Islam Shaped the Founders
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/09...
Jefferson and Adams were far from the only Americans who differed about Islam and the status of believing Muslims in America. As Spellberg points out, during the ratification controversy of 1787-1788, the proposed U.S. Constitution’s ban on religious tests for holding federal office (Article VI, clause 1) became a lightning-rod of criticism, with opponents of the Constitution charging that that ban would enable “a Jew, Turk, or infidel” to become president. Nor did these political controversies rage only among those conventionally identified as leading “founding fathers.” A key leader of the Baptist denomination, John Leland, not only backed Jefferson’s and Madison’s campaign against religious establishments in Virginia and on the national stage, but also sided with them on the question of Muslims becoming part of the American experiment. Recognizing that the Baptists faced discrimination and denunciation from more established sects of Protestant Christianity, and taking that experience to heart, Leland opposed discrimination against those who were not part of that favored range of Protestant sects and denominations – including Muslims.

<quoted text>"I'm not aware there is a criminal charge that accuses somebody of being a bigot"
Oh make no mistake, there is no law against being a racist or bigot, in fact the constitution protects it. Even if the Federal lynch mob Obama sent to prove Zimmerman was a racist/bigot they couldn't have done anything about it. The same goes for if Zimmerman actually profiled that man, nothing illegal about that either.
Now that we have cleared that up I am sure you remember how hard the feds, state and race profiteers tried they simply couldn't spin anything significant enough for the prosecution to effectively use in the trail. Like you and 147, they scored ZERO on this issue.
By the way, your pal just suggested murdering an innocent man.
Do you read? In the post to which you responded, I pretty sure I indicated that charging somebody with a racially motivated hate crime requires a high degree of proof. If Zimmerman had said something that was analyzed as having been clearly racially focused (which the FBI said he did not), that would have been sufficient to elevate the charges to a "hate" crime, although that still wouldn't have brought any kind of conviction if the burden of proof hurdle wasn't met.

That's utter hogwash that there was noting significant to believe that Zimmerman wasn't acting with racial animosity. Again, it's about "burden of proof". You're confused between what the circumstances of Zimmerman's reporting history indicate about his suspicions (racial profiling), and the evidence required to bring that kind of charge and to convict - which is "beyond a reasonable doubt". The prosecution failed with the jury.

Nevertheless, I have a difference of opinion with you on this issue. No biggie. It won't be the first time, and I'm sure it won't be the last. The fact that we find ANY common ground is testament to the fact that most Americans love America and want fair play and equal OPPORTUNITY. That's what we keep trying to find here - common ground.

OBAMA: >>>> AMERICA DOESN'T WANT A 'TRANSFORMATION' <<<<
Exclusive: Pat Boone calls for 'renewal,''restoration' of great nation

...

Friends, this is our DNA. This is how we came to be America, and we don’t want it “radically transformed” by this president, or any other!

We too appeal to the Supreme Judge of the World for the rightness of our intentions, rely on His protection, and pledge our lives, fortunes and sacred honor to the renewal, the restoration – not the “transformation”– of America!
