I did a little research and found out there were 4 protests in red Alaska!

NYC. DC. Boston. Syracuse. Miami. Bar Harbor, ME. Pittsfield, MA. Columbia, SC.

In 300+ protests across the country, the American people are mobilized to demand the DOJ #ReleaseTheReport.

We will not accept a 4-page summary of a 400-page report cherrypicked by a Trump loyalist.

BREAKING NEWS: "WikiLeaks claimed Thursday that a senior source with Ecuador's state department had informed Wikileaks that Assange would be removed from the embassy and subject to arrest by UK authorities."

There are some very significant implications to this. Still processing.

A top Republican Senator just became the first to break ranks with his party and demand the release of the Mueller Report.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is one of the more influential members of the GOP Senate caucus outside of leadership, which is why the nation was surprised to see him take to Twitter in support of releasing the Mueller Report, especially considering his colleagues have blocked efforts to release the report five times so far.

Add your name to demand Senate Republicans allow a vote on the bipartisan bill to make Mueller's report public. We deserve the truth!

MSBNC’s host Lawrence O’Donnell publicly wondered if this was a turning point in the battle to release the Special Counsel’s report on President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia and obstruction of investigations into the interference in the 2016 election.

If Senator McConnell’s colleagues continue to break ranks with the president, at some point he will have little choice left politically but to allow a vote to go forward.

The Barr memo’s attempt to exonerate the President for his unscrupulous and potentially impeachable behavior has resulted in a backlash that is only growing now that one of the Senate’s most important members has added his voice to the chorus.

When Franklin Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act in the 1930s, many Americans were unconvinced that the program was good policy. Republicans and conservative Democrats made accusations about the program's influence on the economy and also insinuated that the program was socialist. Despite this opposition, the Social Security Act became law.

Charges of Socialism

Critics of the Social Security Act worried that the program's old age pensions and unemployment insurance were based on socialism. Opponents of this view were not shy about their criticisms: When Franklin Roosevelt's Secretary of Labor testified on Capitol Hill about Social Security, Senator Thomas Pryor Gore, a Democrat from Oklahoma, asked the Secretary if Social Security was socialism. Likewise, the American Bar Association and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce denounced Social Security as an attempt to "Sovietize the country" and a compulsory socialistic tax.

Social Security was started in 1935 and helped pull us out of the Great Depression. We have had it ever since during WWII and the cold war. If somebody tells Trump Social Security is socialism I expect Trump to come out strongly against Social Security. Oh I would love that! grin

Social Security is a terrible way to save for retirement.

It is a start. A basic. You should do more than that. But quite a few seniors do live on that alone. They weren't financial savey enough to do more. Without Social Security a lot of them would be homeless. Would America accept that? I hope not.

It is the government stealing money and acting like a hero when they give it back at a much lower value than it is worth.

To reiterate, the countries with the highest standard of living and well-being (Canada, included) all have universal healthcare. And having universal healthcare does not = socialism. It = being a highly civilized nation.

They should at least allow new entries into the system keep half of it to invest in better retirement plans.

OK. I could agree with that. But require them to invest it in a qualified retirement plan (IRA, etc) and not just spend it on other stuff.
