    So much for Social Security being the "Third Rail" in U.S. politics. These changes will effect people already over 65 who are on Social Security. I'm guessing they are paving the way to use Social Security to help offset that huge tax break to the already rich.

    Were the changes proposed actually enacted?

    Homework assignment: using search engines as needed, find out. Don’t report results, so everybody who cares, has to care enough to look.

    OK, OK.

    Given the numerous times you have posted long outdated articles as "proof" of some ridiculous right wing assertion, this post is ironic if not hypocritical.

    It takes honesty and integrity to admit your mistakes. That's way above hoople's comfort zone.

    Here is one of your outright lies posted in May this year.

    .12,970 knife attacks in London this year.

    Remember that nonsense?

    For the record
    12,970 was total knife crime for the financial year.
    Knife crime includes possession of a knife

    Woundings for the financial year were 4,700.

    Assuming an average distribution that would be about 400 a month,
    So approx 1600 woundings
    NOT 12,970


    Was that gross stupidity or a lie from you?
