Civil Rights & Social Security

Civil and political rights are a class of rights that protect individuals' freedom from unwarranted infringement by governments and private organizations, and ensure one's ability to participate in the civil and political life of the state without discrimination or repression. Social security is primarily a social insurance program providing social protection or protection against socially recognized conditions, including poverty, old age, disability, unemployment and others. 5.0/5

Where is your mind going, or should I be afraid to ask? Social Security, Civil Rights, wow. We drift yes
GOP'S NEW HOUSE RULES SETS STAGE FOR SOCIAL CUTS Nancy J Altman & Eric R Kingston for Huffington Post. Jan. 7, 2015 The first target is benefits for the disabled. Republican opponents of Social Security have not wasted even a single day in their plan to dismantle Social Security brick by brick. What should be a dry, mundane exercise -- the adoption of new rules by the newly convening House of Representatives -- has turned into a stealth attack on America's working families. A technical amendment, known as "reallocation" -- something that has been done many times over the history of Social Security, something that few persons other than actuaries and other Social Security experts ever know about -- must be enacted in the current Congress to ensure that all Social Security benefits continue to be paid in full and on time. The change is analogous to what investors do when they rebalance their accounts, but in the case of Social Security, a failure to rebalance will result in an unnecessary and completely avo ...
A proud American who admired the fight for Social Security, fought hard for Medicare, Civil Rights,Voting Rights Act, womens rights
This is from a post I read awhile ago... I agree with it! "I recommend the reading of Sons Of Wichita by Daniel Schulman. Many people are unaware of the long and sordid trail the Koch family has taken in their eventual goal of ruling the USA. We are so close to living in an oligarchy and most people have no knowledge. The patriarch of the Koch family, Fred Koch was one of the founding fathers of the John Birch Society. The group that came to epitomize the powerful prejudicial opponents to the Civil Rights campaign of the 1960's. Oddly similar to the attempts made currently to disallow poor minority citizens their constitutional right to vote, most prevalent in Georgia and Texas. In addition, the Koch brothers are THE founders of Tea Party. Yes, the majority of the members of the Tea Party have no idea just who they are in bed with. The majority of the Tea Party constituents have no idea that the 'big picture' includes putting a stop to the Affordable Care Act, Unemployment Benefits, Social Security and .. ...
I am running for Congress to secure the fifth district house seat for Oklahoma's stressed working and middle class. We need to protect Social Security and expand benefits; preserve Medicare and secure adequate funding to strengthen the program; support public education, including Pell Grants and Stafford Loans for college students; and make government work for all people by helping those who need a hand up and making their American Dream come true. I support a woman's right to choose; the Employment Non- Discrimination Act; Voting Rights and Civil Rights for all Americans; fair treatment for workers, including federal government workers; raising the minimum wage; and equal opportunity and equal justice under the law. I promise not to shut down the government or engage in reckless public behavior that keeps our government from assisting the American people. The government needs to work to solve the problems of the American people, not to make their lives more difficult. We have knocked the better part of . ...
"What did liberals do that was so offensive to the Republican Party? I’ll tell you what they did. Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created Social Security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act. Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act. What did Conservatives do? They opposed them on every one of those things, every one. So when you try to hurl that label at my feet, ‘Liberal,’ as if it were something to be ashamed of, something dirty, something to run away from, it won’t work, Senator, because I will pick up that label and I will wear it as a badge of honor."--Matt Santos
History has shown that when Americans understand a problem, we have a remarkable capacity to roll up our sleeves and get on with solving it – putting ideology aside, becoming practical and pragmatic. At the start of the 20th century we reformed a corrupted political system, initiated a progressive tax, regulated food and drugs, and split up the Standard Oil Trust. In the 1930s we didn’t succumb to fascism or communism, but reformed capitalism – with Social Security, the 40-hour workweek, a minimum wage, and the right to collective bargaining. In the 1950s we expanded public higher education, and built the largest and most modern highway system in the world. In the1960s we extended civil rights and voting rights to blacks, and overcame the scourge of poverty among the nation’s elderly and poor through Medicare and Medicaid. In the 1970s we expanded civil rights, attacked pollution and the degradation of the environment, and access to higher education. But starting in the 1980s, the engine of refor ...
Today is Presidents day. Who was your favorite president. Mine FDR and LBJ. These 2 presidents cared about the people of this country and passed legislation that you enjoy today. Social Security and Civil Rights. todays Republican Party is trying to take it all away.
I remain appalled at how little LGBTQ rights have played a role in this presidential campaign. Most of my Romney-voting friends say that they're voting for him for fiscal and economic reasons, but disagree with him on Social Policy. That’s a perfectly valid stance to have, but it’s tantamount to saying "my taxes, take-home pay, and money mean more than the basic rights of 5-10% of our population." 88% of the country doesn't recognize same-sex marriage; 58% of the country lets sexual orientation be legitimate grounds for termination; 68% of the country says the same with regards to gender identity. Voting for Romney and ignoring his opposition to same-sex hospital visitation rights, inheritance rights, equal Social Security treatment, marriage equality, etc., is hardly any different than voting for George Wallace during the Civil Rights era but then justifying it saying you voted for "economic reasons" – and I don’t think any sane person would vote for Wallace today, no matter how good his economic ...
I have seen this today many times did he realize what a compliment it was ? o Romney would be a president like Reagan Eisenhower and Coolidge not bad company Calvin Coolidge was the 30th president of the United States. He served at a time of unparalled prosperity. " Coolidge was a laconic New Englander who strongly favored frugality in Government. His major goals as president were to reduce government spending. cut taxes, and to keep America from any foreign entanglements. He succeeded in these efforts. 6 minutes ago · Like Ike on social issues :Little Rock’s Central High School In 1957, Eisenhower sent in 1000 paratroopers to ensure the rights of the Little Rock Nine to attend Central High. Proposed first general civil rights legislation since Reconstruction. The final act created a permanent Commission for Civil Rights, one of Truman’s original goals. New Deal In 1954, he signed bills extending Social Security benefits to more than 7 million Americans. Created the Department of Health, Education ...
If what you want is actual change, then what has to be built is a mass movement that is militant and can use direct action to slow or stop profit. A movement that can do that can demand whatever it wants. Why? Because politicians answer the dictates of the ruling class, the 1%. [Politicians] are merely puppets. If you have a movement that stops a portion of the economic machine, the ruling class will make their puppets dance for you. None of the changes that we see as great advances in human or civil rights have come by electing the right politician. Social Security, Medicare, Section 8, AFDC, Civil Rights legislation — that all came because there were movements that were using direct action to stop profits; movements that the ruling class was scared would turn revolutionary. In the 1920s there were sit-down strikes in factories across the U.S., mining strikes across the south, hundreds of thousands of people in the streets for demonstrations against capitalism in the cities, and J. Edgar Hoover deemed ...
If Governor Mitt Romney wins this election which I strongly think he will, life as we know it will be over.What I mean by that is, everything that we have come to know and take for granted in this country whether it may be Affermative action, the Civil Rights or Voting Rights Act, from Medicaid to Medicare, Social Security to Veterans bennifitts will be at high risk of going away. Budgets that fund Transportation and programs for the poor will be gone. There will be absolute Polorization in this world. It really hurts me to say it but America is going down hill starting in January 2013. People get ready. The hour of Trial and Tribulation is near. Trust in Lord. He is, always has been and always will be our only hope. But it will soon be more clear to everyone on just a few of so many reasons why we Christians choose to have faith in the Promises of God over the ways of this hopeless, wicked, and sinful world. It is my prayer that all who read this will understand the true message of this writing We mu ...
So many of us should be proud Liberals -- instead of cringing before the GOP labels of 'tree huggers" -- 'bleeding hearts' and so forth. We are the people who brought all the New Deal policies to America: Social Security and the resulting programs. We suppported The right of Women to Vote, the Civil Rights, Labor, Roe/Wade, the end of the Viet Nam war (alto it took a *** of a long time),NASA, and so many many causes that brought America into a new Century. WE are the FUTURE.
Romney: Civil Rights, Dream Act, Voting Rights, Equality, Social Security, Health Care and Equal Rights for all gone.
This from the man who broke international law to get elected, shut down the Civil Rights office at the Department of Agriculture, in violation of Federal Law, raided Social Security to pay for his illegal activities, ran the Iran Contra operation. Remember Oliver North. Now that he is out of Prison, I hear he works for, I think, Fox news. What a guy!
That would be tough. I support Civil Rights, public education, Social Security, Universal Health Care, and climate protection
ithout the Democratic Party we would still be property. The 1964 Civil Rights set us totally free. It was the initiative of President John Kennedy, but he was assasinated, so then President Lyndon Johnson got it done after he took Kennedy's place. The Republicans voted against it. They also voted against the Voting Rights Act of 1965. If it wasn't for Democrats we would have no medicare, medicaid, Social Security, Student Loans, minimum wage, Affirmative Action and Health Care. Do you realize that America is the only industralized country that doesn't offer all its citizens free heakth care? We as taxpayers pay the Health Care of the President, Vice-President, senators, congressmen and women and supreme court justices - then why shouldn't we have it too? Don't give me no shi+ that there is no difference between Republicans and Democrats. Look at where you are and think of where you would be without the Kennedys, Johnson, Humphrey, Bayhs, Kerry, etc. The choice is obvious. Romney and Ryan say they wanna go ...
Teapublicans want to take us back before Medicare, Social Security, Civil Rights, Lilly Ledbetter Act, Roe v. Wade, Emancipation Proclamation, Voting Rights Act, and back before the 1st & 13th & 16th & 19th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. This can't happen!
Thieves of business & of democrats achievements Civil Rights, Social Security, Medicare, Medicade, the list goes on.
Social Security, Medicare, 40 hour work week, Voting rights Paid Vacations Civil Rights *** Rights Union bargaining creates industrial middle class--for the first time working folks can make enough to buy a house and car. (Eisenhower supported this, but these days he would be stopped at the door of the Repub. convention). GI Bill Student Loan program. Employment Discrimination Law to prevent work place discrimination. EPA-Clean Air, Water, etc. (when industry was 'self regulating' a river in Ohio actually caught fire) Booming economy under Bill Clinton, government running huge surpluses for the first time. Keeping government out of family planning decisions. Keeping religion out of government. Safer cars and builidings, etc.--Remember when manufacturers fought air-bags, said it would put them out of business? Safer cars save thousands of lives each year. These were brought to you by the Democratic Party, with the help of many Republicans, before the Republican Party became a dysfunctional mix of fat cats ...
Democrats are Pro Choice if you want to kill babies but not where your earnings, retirement etc... Are concerned. They are, so far, standing against letting us folks under 55 having the Choice to opt out of Social Security or to start in. I've expressed my desire for such a choice for years. That proposal is now here & the people standing in the way of me doing as I please with with the product of my own labor are Democrats. This is not at all surprising from the same group who was pro slavery, anti Civil War, had/has their terrorist wing of the KKK who lynched many blacks & over 1,300 whites b.c. they were Republican a didn't like this new party full of & helping blacks. Same group who's president Wilson showed the Klan recruiting film The Birth of a Nation. Same grip Group that put blacks onto Uncle Sam's Plantation through all the government welfare programs & destroys the black family, brought us threw income tax, same group who blocked Civil Rights legislation until the took it from Republicans & Ike ...
Romney Ryan is quite a team. May we never see the day they are elected. Let it be a lesson to us Democrats not to take our way of life for granted. Everything we have is because someone came before us and fought for it. Social Security was a battle that many people fought and died for. Civil Rights did not come with out blood shed. Voting was a right for only the White Male could only do. It took many years for woman to get the right to vote. Then with the Civil Rights movement blacks got the right to vote. All your employee rights were first fought for by Labor Unions. You get 2 ten minute breaks in an eight hour shift because labor unions fought for your rights and then only after many demonstrations and disputes the people of America won and got Workers Rights, Child Labor Laws. So the next time your at work think and take a moment of silence for the people who came before you and died for your rights of today that you enjoy and take for granted. Do not let people like Mitt Romney & Paul Ryan destroy w ...
I don't understand the big deal over showing a Government issued ID. In order to collect Social Security you need a ID. To collect welfare you need an ID. To use food stamps you need ID. To cash a government or any other check you need ID. SO WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL!
"... like many other pieces of important legislation before it – Social Security, Medicare, Civil Rights and Voting Rights – it will be improved upon. Every Democratic president since Franklin D. Roosevelt has sought Universal Health Care, to no avail..." - Robert Reich -
's: many of you r planning to stay home on the primary next Tues. U R still cowering in the corner licking your wounds from the 2010 election where most of us said "we didn't vote 4 a single person who won. Tues., there r 2 fine men running on our ticket against Frank Lucas, either of which would stand up and represent us. I will be voting for Tim Murray even tho his opponent is also a fine man because I feel he has the best chance of being on the ballot in Nov. We have cowered long enough & it is time to realize if we don't even bother to vote, the time may come when the Tea Party will totally rule our nation, to the tune of "Let them eat cake." Ours is the party who brought Civil Rights, Medicare and Social Security, which is the only thing many r still eke-ing by with. Be proud and vote.
My generation, where are we taking this country? My parents generation was called the greatest: They stood up to the Party of Scrooge. Then they made the rules and gave us so many things: **They fought to give us unions: --- 40 hour work week --- Benefits --- Vacations --- Safety at the work place and many, many other wonderful things that improve the quality of our worker’s and family’s lives. **They gave us women's rights that gave women the right to vote. **They ended children being exploited in the work force. **They gave us a education system better than any in the world. **They fought a war that kept the world free. **They gave us Social Security. **They gave us Medicare and many safety nets. **They gave us Civil Rights. **They gave us the science and technology to go to the moon. **They gave us technology for the Internet and Freedom to express ourselves. **They gave us laws to protect the air and the water. My Generation will be called the Greediest: We have a party called the GOP that is run ...
"So the radical proposition is this: Some politicians and media figures need to start calling Democratic efforts to just maintain the federal government's role in, you know, running the nation and assisting the less fortunate and supporting civil rights 'conservative'. When some Republican talks about privatizing Social Security or shutting down the Department of Education, Anderson Cooper should then turn to a Democrat and say, 'What's the conservative position on this?'"
Things conservatives have been against throughout history: The American Revolution, Freeing of Slaves, Women's Suffrage, Humane Treatment of Animals, Social Security, The Civil Rights Act, Medicare, Interracial Marriage, and now *** Marriage. They're wrong, and in the end common sense and the just goodness of the human spirit will prevail.
US: POLITICAL ISSUES US politics is mostly based on political issue, which is a point in question or a matter that is in dispute, as between contending parties in an action at law/politics. Some hot button issues include: Abortion, Health Care, Immigration, Education, Women Rights, Death Penalty, Environment, Social Security, Gun Control, Affirmative Action, Economy, Foreign Affairs, National Security, Jobs, *** Rights, Medicare, Religion, Civil Rights, Etc. Issues are mostly controversial as they affect many aspects of the people’s life differently. Whereas some issues cut across and into other issues, some issues are interwoven. For example, Abortion issue cuts in religion. Each political party may have an official position (platform) on any given issue. Also, candidates running for office take positions which are mostly in line with their party or at variance. The electorates also take a stand and may vote for a candidate based on the issues that are most important to the voter. In the 2012, Barack ...
