In America, atheists are still in the closet

So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

Nah.

Of SA's white presidents, I'll vote for a guy like De Klerk.

But most of the other were douches.

Smuts was okay, I suppose.

"Rational" responsible adults take care of themselves. SSI is something rational responsible adults have paid into for their working lives and 401Ks and IRAs pay for the the nicer things that SSI doesn't cover.
Children grow up and pay their own way.
There are occasions in many "rational" responsible adults lives where temporary circumstances they have no control over make it impossible to cover needs and that is what government is for.
Yes. A bad investment, a car accident, bad insurance... Many things can go wrong. For such folks, should they go to the streets? Methinks not.

I’m not bothered what it is, it is deeply offensive to over 1/3 of the worlds population and simply objectionable to most other people. It breaks laws in the majority of countries in the world. It was made fraudulently with dubbed vocals with the sole intention of inciting hatred. And for this you do not think the filmmaker was responsible for making his film?
Tell me if your next door neighbour walked up to your house and crapped on the doorstep would you consider joe bloggs in the next town responsible or the neighbour who befouled your step responsible?
I was hoping you would read that link as a whole and consider the whole document, not just a selective part of a paragraph. It goes a long way do explaining and understanding the divide between the west and the Muslim world.
The difference is the muslim world is full of stupid, hate-filled, homicidal maniacs.

The film was legal and inoffensive to anyone other than a moron.

It doesn't matter what is illegal in another country. The film was made in this country. Going 70 in a 70 zone on the interstate is not breaking the law because other roads have a limit of 55.

You are stupid, and a muslim terrorist apologist.

Wrong.

On average, Social Security recipients receive more in benefits over their lifetimes than they and their employers contributed in taxes during their working years.

The system functions only because there are enough current workers making additional payments into the fund.

This is why Social Security as a giant pyramid scheme. Madoff ring a bell?

You never get anything right, do you?

No, that's not what government is for. At least not in this country.

Look it up. Take a class. Hell, you're hopelessly stupid.

Ah.
A good debate, Double Fine must admit.
Double Fine really has nothing against Romney. He *is* a fine capitalist and a good guv'nor.
He just has a nasty habit of saying something stupid at the spur of the moment (Double Fine calls this foot-in-mouth-disease). Although it can sometimes be a bit offensive (not to mention amusing), this does not mean that he will be a terrible president.
To be fair, the campaigning was turning ugly and Double Fine was glad to see none of that where-are-your-birth-certifica tes-oh-no-you-first-where-are- your-tax-statements.
None of that, no strawmen, no talking to chairs... Good, says Doube Fine.
The economic question is a simple one, but the answer is not. Will economic policy, even in a country as powerful as the US, be able to weather the storm that is the global economy?
To be honest, Double Fine does not think so. This is a storm that will rage for a few more years, no matter what anyone does.
Double Fine would like to see the following issues tackled in the upcoming debates:
- Gay marriage
- Education
Do you want them to debate who gets to throw the boquet?

You're an idiot.

There you go again butt (oops buck) making assumptions
Wrong, everyone is responsible for their actions, his action was making a film to incite hatred and violence, as I said to Aura he cannot just shrug his shoulders and say “so what”. I realise that you are of that opinion that he can, convicts usually are but that is not typical of human society. However I can completely understand why an ex con like you gets confused between bloody minded idiocy and responsibility.
Where did I say I was against the first amendment? All I have said about any amendment is that they are amendments to the “unalienable rights” offered in the constitution, which I find rather amusing.
I thought you had learned you lesson but no, you go round and round in circles just as the good butt crack should- So do you want to go into the name calling again you ignorant pratt of an apologist for paedophiles?
Nice one and best wishes
The first 10 amendments are the "Bill of Rights". The amendments are protective of rights, they don't "amend" rights.

You are empty-headed. You should never comment on rights or the Constitution.

Stick to something you know...if there is such a subject.

Nope.

And according to your favorite source, FOX "news"

"People retiring today are part of the first generation of workers who have paid more in Social Security taxes during their careers than they will receive in benefits after they retire. It's a historic shift that will only get worse for future retirees, according to an analysis by The Associated Press.

Previous generations got a much better bargain, mainly because payroll taxes were very low when Social Security was enacted in the 1930s and remained so for decades.

"For the early generations, it was an incredibly good deal," said Andrew Biggs, a former deputy Social Security commissioner who is now a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. "The government gave you free money and getting free money is popular."

If you retired in 1960, you could expect to get back seven times more in benefits than you paid in Social Security taxes, and more if you were a low-income worker, as long you made it to age 78 for men and 81 for women.

As recently as 1985, workers at every income level could retire and expect to get more in benefits than they paid in Social Security taxes, though they didn't do quite as well as their parents and grandparents.

Not anymore.

A married couple retiring last year, after both spouses earned average lifetime wages, paid about $598,000 in Social Security taxes during their careers. They can expect to collect about $556,000 in benefits if the man lives to 82 and the woman lives to 85, according to a 2011 study by the Urban Institute, a Washington think tank.

Says the stupid, hate-filled, homicidal maniac

The film was deliberately offensive and created to incite hatred by a known fanatical coptic christian Muslim hater

So you are saying that everyone in the world is responsible for their actions except Americans.

You are saying that no American has the responsibility of a human being in considering other human beings

You are saying stuff it if it’s legal in your back yard then f_ck everyone else

OK, fair enough, that at least explains why you are a convicted felon

And an apologist for paedophiles. I hear you have a child too. How sick is that
