I don't and won't have a Facebook account. I always used my real name, and was never ashamed of what I posted. It was enjoyable while it lasted, but all good things come to an end sooner or later. Have to go out and post my Soldiers Cross's now. For those that care, remember tomorrow calls for the Flag to be raised slowly to full staff and then be lowered to half-staff at Sunrise. Then at Noon, briskly raised to full- staff. Doing it right is the least you owe those that gave their lives. Even if you are at the beach, instead of a Veteran's Cemetary on Memorial Day.

With a seasoned Chicago Politician in charge, what else would we expect? It might be amazing what else will be coming to the forfront shortly.

Come on Terry, you and I probably both suspect it is the first move into making it universal in a few years, but cutting it back as an entitlement. It is all in the wording and perception. Once everyone believes it an entitlement, the change will be easy. Remember all the upset folks commenting here when the Government entities first started calling it an entitlement, and it should be cut?

Now I wonder, seeing as how Holder signed off on the warrents he told Congress he knew nothing about, will he be charged with Contempt of Congress, be charged with perjury and jailed just like any normal Citizen would be?

Say Sis, have you noticed Social Security is now Officially Titled a Federal Benefit and Entitlement? They changed the printing on the few checks that are still issued, and on their paperwork. It isn't called a Retirement anymore. Wonder if our President knows, or is really behind that one?

waltspecht 1 year, 2 months ago on Dog owners must be more responsible

Most won't even control their children. Without strict laws of responsibility, people have no incentive to be responsible. The old reliance on individual responsibility is gone. Everyone and everything else is responsible, never the actual culprit. I can remember back in the early Sixties when New York City cracked down on Truent students by threatening their parents with fines and jail. Many a son got an escort to school by a Parent, and I even saw one get handcuffed to a radiator and the Teacher handed the key. Personal responsibility has got to be brought to the forefront in both Parents and Dog owners.

OK, take that Dog that has been certified to detect explosives and firearms for a walk where ever these folks gather. Then convict those found in posession under Federal statute and we will be rid of them for a manditory ten on the Federal dime instead of our County and State money.

I hate to say it, but between Foxes biting children in school yards, dog attacks of all sorts and robberies in general. I believe those that don't have a CCW need to stay in their car or home where they might be safe. Those that do have a CCW and are proficient in the weapon they carry had best load up with safety ammo and protect themselves and their fellow citizens. There aren't enough Police to handle all these situations.

Better put, "A dry well doesn't produce enough water to raise a crop." There has to be some point where the Government will get out of the Charity Business due to a lack of funding.
