    WHEN THEY CAN'T EVEN GUARANTEE THEIR OWN TOMORROW, LET ALONG 30/31 DAYS INTO THE FUTURE.

    respect the morals, not the messenger. i bold everything i say for i do not preach to the choir; i preach to the new... or the trolls. WRONG=RIGHT IS NOT CORRECT. ONE SIDE IS WRONG. THE OTHER SIDE IS MORE CORRECT THAN THE OTHER.

        to understand that we need both -- SS and a living wage. We need to stop encouraging the idea that SS is only something the currently old can expect to rely on. We will all be there soon enough. And continuing the "I'm young" and the "reassurances" that cuts will only be to the 55 and younger crowd teaches wrong thinking.

        Maybe that's what you meant. That's not what I read.

      and literally gouty and over 50 and probably unemployable. And believe me I don't resent your youth.

      But Christ almighty (shaking cane at clouds) don't kids these days know how to turn CAPS LOCK off! and skip bolding!

      Seriously bolding the whole comment doesn't add anything, let your passion show through your words and not your choice of STYLE
