re: Want to know why many of you will not collect your SS benefits? - islandtiger
[quote]I know I'm paying money into an account that will fold before I'm allowed to touch it. [/quote] I wouldn't be so dramatic. There will undoubtedly be some adjustments (e.g., raise the salary cap on contributions, raise retirement age, reduce benefits) but there will be Social Security for...

re: Trump approval rating in the 30's!! Is that possible? - islandtiger
[quote]it would be nice knowing that a large majority of the population still support him [/quote] Why would you expect this? He received less than 50% of the votes in the general election and only about 60 percent of the voting-age citizens voted. Thus, he had about 30% support back in Nov....

re: Anyone here have mortgage insurance? - islandtiger
[quote]Dallas market is nuts.[/quote] Nothing like many major metropolitan areas. I just bought a house near Seattle in a housing market where the mean sales price is approx. $750,000. Not a problem for late career couples, but I don't see how young families can buy homes in this area. People a...

re: Has the lefts hatred of trump already surpassed their hatred of bush? - islandtiger
I was not a fan of W, but certainly did not have the visceral hate that I do for Trump. As some context, I voted for both Ford and Reagan, so I am not exactly a flaming liberal. Your idea of "winning" is my idea of the US losing. Let's hope I am wrong....

re: In 1 Month,94 Illegals in NC Commited Sexual Assaults on Children Over 500 Times - islandtiger
Not a simple issue, but it is safe to say that virtually all illegal immigrants come to the US to escape dangerous situations and/or make a better life for their family. They have every incentive to stay out of trouble. Are some committing crimes? Sure, but don't make it out to seem like we all ne...

re: CBS News..."Mr. Trump"....will Not Use The Term "President" Trump - islandtiger
If you have paid attention over the years, the convention is to us "President" with the initial reference in a story and "Mr." Thereafter. Was certainly the case during the Obama's two terms. I started paying attention after liberals complained about the lack of respect. Next story......

re: Gorsuch: Will he be reliable? - islandtiger
Liberal here and I think this is about the only good decision Trump has made since he took office. I hope the Democratic leadership in the Senate makes the right choice and supports the nomination. Would I like a more liberal judge? Sure, but I do like that he doesn't seem to have a definable polit...

re: Running list of Trump "alternative facts" since his inauguration - islandtiger
I started a similar list but gave up...too many gaffs/lies to keep up with. I am beginning to think that is the "plan"...numb the populace and press with a steady stream of lesser issues so they won't react when the big ones hit the fan....
