A change is needed

i know if they lower the age of retirement to 55 it would help the economy,i started working at a very young age,and paying into ssi for 39 years and 29 years to go.i feel if the retirement age was lower more jobs can be available for the 17.5% unemploied.for a man working to the age of 65 or 68,you become slower at your skills,as a corporations point of view you can bring in the younger faster worker to the workforce to replace the worker whos ready for retirement.

Thom,

Funny writer Mark Warner (a la Andy Borowitz) makes fun of Herman Cain with this make-believe OpEd

I am reassessing my campaign for the White House.
My campaign was just gaining traction, I believe, when the scandal-mongering press released these allegations. Apparently murky rumors of sexual impropriety trump all other aspects of a candidacy -- my fresh ideas, my qualifications, my achievements -- which I categorically deny!

The Measure of a Life Worth Living

Euthanasia has a tendency to slide from the voluntary to the compulsory, as people increasingly make judgments on behalf of others as to what is a human life worth living. The opinion is widespread that the persistent vegetative state — the condition in which a person with some kind of brain injury remains alive but unresponsive to stimuli — is one such life not worth living.

The Clarkson Solution

I've been waiting for someone in the One Percent to speak honestly of the way they would solve the present civil unrest. This is the comment by Jeremy Clarkson, host of the BBC hit series Top Gear. This is the link; http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2011/dec/01/jeremy-clarkson-one-show-strike?intcmp=239

and this is the text of the interview;

How to End Voter Fraud. It's Simpler than You Think.

If we claim to be a true democracy, every adult person who wakes up in the morning in a America and breath the air here, should have a say in how he or she is governed. We should use only paper ballots and protect against any voter fraud with a purple thumb print. We should do away with all types of voter disenfranchisement because of citizenship, failure to register, or failure to posses certain ID papers. We should even do away with voter disenfranchisement due to past criminal behavior.
