“1. Social Security is a self-financed program. The Social Security program has an independent budget that is separate from the rest of the federal government.”

“Social Security, by law, does not add to the deficit. It is not a driver of long-term debt”

“Great Point. I know someone from CT who I went to high school, who is living in Alabama now. How is it all going for you down there? There are always parts of even the reddest states like Austin is in Texas, that is sort of a haven for free thinkers, and a lot of transplants.”

“And much of that day is a flop. People show up at the store for the first 2 hours and then go back home to sleep. When a store opens at midnight, it means there's a lot of nothing going on between 3-9AM. Employees struggling to look busy or worse, having to come in and then being sent home half way thru their shift. Happens every year”

“My sister and I came to an epiphany on black Friday several years ago. When you go by 2 hours before the store is due to open in the middle of the night and you aren't one of the first 5 people in line, you won't be one of the first 50 people in the store. They are holding places for friends and family. If you aren't one of the first 10 people in the door, you won't get any of the great deal/must haves. Barely, technically it's not legally bait & switch. What is left over will be there 8 hours later when the stores are almost empty because everyone else has finished shopping and gone back to sleep.

This year we are going to Costco which is closed on Thanksgiving and opening at normal hours on Friday”

“Big difference between the Catholic and other Christian churches. The stuff doesn't belong to the Pope. He can't it with him or give it to his friends and family. It belongs to the Church. Granted as much as the church does to help the more, there's always more to do”

“Algebra II is high level math?!?!?! Granted , you get past the x+2=4 stage, but it's still a lot of basic stuff. Calculus, now that's higher level math. Differential Equations too.

Texas practically invented the changing the standards when you fair to meet them to claim you are a success. Re: Ron Paige, the Houston Miracle that wasn't”
