    Whut? Social security is a forced savings plan where you get back after first paying in.

    The actual name of "Social Security" is OASDI.
    Old Age, Survivor, and Disability Insurance.

    It's surprising how many people can't grasp this.

    When you pay into your car insurance policy are you "saving" anything?
    No, you are contributing to the fund, which is then used to pay out for accident claims that year.

    Republicans borrowing from the SSA trust fund to give tax cuts for the top 1%, and to start wars, THAT is the real problem.

    BTW my understanding is that free speech

    And what is your "understanding" based on? Feeling in your gut, predisposition?

    Every school has particular policies about how public speaking and haranguing of passersby can be conducted. Follow them and you will be fine. Of course there is the occasional case where Barney Fife decides to enforce the rules to his interpretation at that moment. Which could happen to anyone of any ideology, however teabaggers are the kings of butthurt outrage about it.

    There seems an intersection among my friends in these sets:
    1) Complain about being harangued by beggars, girl scouts, petitioners, etc. outside stores
    2) Complain about people not allowed to exercise same sorts of tactics on school grounds

    I find the phrase "sanctity of conscience" a strange one.
