They also said that the 2nd amendment guaranteed the right of private citizen's to own and carry firearms. That good enough for you that you will demand that your politicians stop trying to pass laws contrary to that opinion?

First, it is arms, not firearms. It does not specify or limit types of arms. However, the constitution does specify a framework for laws and judicial review. Therefore it is reasonable to allow laws to specify or limit types of arms (unless you think your next door neighbor has a right to have nuclear bombs).

Only a fool would count on it being there in another 25-30 years. Its already seeing the force of the boomer generation hit it. If you've got a million+ in capital at retirement I wouldn't be surprised that your social security will be stripped to zilch. I can hear the politicians bleating now... "we're paying middle class millionaires social that worth a tax increase?"

That's what they were saying in the seventies and here it is 40 years later and still around. Seniors vote. Seriously, they vote.

The IRS max annual contribution to a 401(k) is $17,500. So unless you are getting a really tremendous return on your investments it may take a little longer than you think. Of course you can save in other retirement vehicles...

Um, no. The max pre-tax amount is $17,500. The max contribution from all sources (pre-tax, employer match, and post-tax) is $52,000. And if you're over 50, you can add another $5K.

It's not clear that USAID was at the front on this opperation. They were funding it secretly through shell companies. When it comes to clandestine operations the CIA has better qualifications. It's just stupid, and more stupid.

You assume that USAID is more than just a front for the CIA.
