Security vs. Selfishness

by Nancy Eckel | December 2010

Regarding David M.

Regarding David M. Walker's "More Than Dollars and Cents" (September-October 2010): There is absolutely nothing wrong with Social Security, yet the media continue to scare people who listen to Bill O'Reilly or Glenn Beck and their like! The only thing wrong with Social Security is that the Republicans want to cancel it for any number of selfish reasons.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
