The author failed to incluxe the highly pertinent question of; 'Are you Capable of preforming any type of work, for which you have been trained?'
As a person who was Injured On the Job, working heavy construction, which has been my lifelong vocation, for which I was schooled & whose employers & potential employers have all insisted that they have No Light Duty Work, which I am capable of doing, I was forced from a highly skilled, good paying job, with good benefits, into a low paying security job with few benefits. Still, I persevered, until such time as my medical & physical conditions deteriated to the point where, even That job was undoable, for someone in my condition.
After paying into Social Security my whole Life, I finally Needed it. That's what it's There cor ! It isn't a 'Handout', because I Paid Into It for my entire working career !
Get Over it !

A recent study showed that, all inclusively, the USA is high on the list of nations with high rates of violent crimes, BUT, if cities that have the Strictest Gun Control laws, such as Washington DC, Chicago, Detroit & New Orleans (which are all also controled by Democrats) are REMOVED from the calculations, then the USA comes in 4th from the BOTTOM of the list !

You might want to do some of your Own Research, first, before you go to getting your hopes up for Senator Cruz, as his Parents weren't American Citizens and he was born in Canada, thus making him INELIGIBLE to be President !
1 year, 10 months ago on Ted Cruz: "I Don't Trust Republicans."
Like Cruz or not, he is Not Eligible to run for, or to hold, the Office of the Presidency any more than Obama /Soetoro/Bounel(or Whatever his Real Name is) is eligible, due to the Lack of 'Natural Born Citizenship', as required by the US.Constitution. The SCOTUS has ruled that said 'NBC' status requires that Both Parents be US Citizens. Neither of the above, nor Rubio or Jindal are eligible. Point, period, paragraph.
Ok all, lets copy & paste this article, then chop out any unconforming parts & paste the rest into an email , fax, or letter to our Congressmen/women.
It just might get them to conspiring to point this glaring illegality out to the Courts !

Toledo OH had to shut down and demolish one of its' Newer Malls, Southwick Mall, due to the incidents of black gangs intimidating customers, who just finally stopped going there. The City Planner got rid of the worst ghettos and built Section 8 Housing in, formerly, white neighborhoods. This not only caused the residents of said neighborhoods to move Elsewhere, due to the new racial problems, but closed down a lot of businesses, as well.
I'm not a racist, but there is Definitely some Real Problems, that the Black Communities need to address. No one Else can Do it !

What a disparet crowd, today's DNC draws...
Anyone who doesn't fit in, anywhere Else, in America, can always expect a Warm embrace forn the Democratic Party!
Seriously! How can a Political Party actually 'Stand for'... Anything, if they have No Core Principles? While they're not 'For' anything, their constituents manage to, pretty much, be Against Everything ! From God, to marriage (man & wife), to National Borders, to American Citizenship, et., al... What a bunch of Haters !
To think, I used to be a devout Democrat...
Until the 'Progressives' took over...
I am sorry to have to admit, that I actually Voted for that POS McCain, for Pres. when he ran against Obama/Soetoro/Bounel(or Whatever his Real Name is). It was the 1st time I ever voted for a Republican... I wouldn't have had to do that if the DNC hadn't put forth an Ineligible Candidate, or, if the Nat'l. Media had done It's job & Vetted him, as they tried w/ McCain, over His , supposed lack of eligibility, which Congress, itself, had to vote to clear his way forward...

@jimmr ; I believe the true cause of the rise in SSDI claimants is primarily due to past middleaged 'walking wounded' (as I once was) losing the secure jobs that had kept them employed (on 'light duty') & found (as I did) that no new employer is willing to hire anyone who is not able to preform a full range of work related duties.
When put into that light, what would you Expect folks to do?
BTW; Virtually All new disability claims are turned Down, twice (at least) by the Soc. Sec. Admin., before ever being allowed (if Ever). Its no 'walk in the Park', getting on SSDI ! Not only that, but it takes a lot of Time, off work, w/out pay, to get there too.

The so called 'Fiscal Cliff' is a creation of Congress. If they would do the jobs that they were elected to do, instead of woorrying about re-election so much, this country wouldn't be in such sad shape .
If they would quit spending money that they don't have, borrowing some 40 cents on every dollar, we wouldn't be in such a fiscal mess in the first place.
Gun Control isn't about Guns, it's about Control, of the People, by their Government. Our Founding Fathers wisely left the weapons of War in the hands of the People. They were opposed to a Standing Army, as being a Threat to our Freedoms. They even distrusted such as the National Guard or Reserves , considering them to be a 'Select Militia'. Rather trusting only in the General Militia, which was comprised of All of the men, ages 16 to 60, who were required to provide their Own weapons and ammunition for them and to be well versed in their operation. 'Well Regulated'. back then, meant well trained. Thus, the entirty of our Freedoms are based upon the People having the ability to keep the Government from choosing a path, other than that, which the People were in favor of.
BTW There's a Reason that America is Not a Democracy, rather being a Constitutional Republic. Democracies are usually short lived, frail creations, that eventually devolve into Anarchy and then into Tyranny. Benjamin Franklin refered to a democracy as 'Two wolves and a sheep sitting down to vote on what to have for supper'. 'Liberty', said he, 'was a Well Armed Sheep, contesting the vote!'

SA; I was Adopted, back in 1953. Abortions, then, were risky endeavors, for the woman involved. My natural mother decided, correctly, as far as I'm concerned, to first bear me then to give me to a couple who would love and nourish me. I would not have lived, these past 60 years, had abortion been more readily available back then, nor would my children have been born, either. Thus, taking one childs life, by abortion, virtually eliminates his/her entire bloodline. My daughter is pregnant, again. My Grandchildren wouldn't ever have been born, had my natural mother not decided to have me.
Thus, I have to take umbridge with your statements above, concerning all pregnancies being a matter of life and death and thus giving the mother the right to abort, for no other reason, than she may not feel like being pregnant or that it doesn't fit into her , previously established timeline, for having children.
Humans, if they wish to continue to being a viable race, on this planet, must end the senseless killing of our children ! As it is, the entire Caucasion Race it as risk, both , here, in America, as well as in Europe and Russia, etc., as well. Educated women are choosing not to have children, simply because of selfish reasons.
It takes a birth rate of 2.11 children, per couple, to pass their Culture along on to future generations. The United States is Barely meeting that goal, with Immigration, both legal as well as illegal. Europe is a goner. They are getting Their immigrants from Muslim Countries. Thus, within another generation, Europe will be a Muslim majority Culture, with all of the denials of basic human rights towards women, that goes along with that religion becoming dominant and shifting to Sharia Law.
America is the Last Bastion of Hope for the Christian Faith ! It is one of the Biblical Commandments, that 'Thou Shalt Not Kill'. That includes fetuses. They are human life too.
Isn't one human's life, marriage, child raising and living to ripe old age worth just a bit more than his mother's right (in your opinion) to kill him/her, before he/she ever has a chance to begin to live ?

"So unless some radical steps are taken to reduce entitlement spending, we can all look forward to more economic erosion and income redistribution; at least until the well runs dry."
Evidentially the author doesn't realize, when he speaks of 'reducing entitlement spending', that Socail Security and Medicare/Medicaid are already Paid for, in advance. The Largest single Holder of Americaan Debt is those programs that I just mentioned, above. the government (ie; Your 'Reps' and mine) have stolen all of the 'untouchable' money in those Trust Fund Accts. (and left IOU's in the form of Treasury Bills, Bonds, etc.) and have Spent the monies on Other Programs, that were not already funded.

"13th Article of our Confederation.
