Conservatism did not bring us Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid. Conservative forces fought tooth and nail against providing Americans with a reliable social safety net. Approximately 62% of all current retirees rely on Social Security benefits for a majority of their income. How would the average American afford health care in their retirement years with current health care costs if it were not for Medicare. We would have fewer retired Americans without the aforementioned programs because many would already be dead or utterly impoverished. Conservatism is a sham philosophy hoisted upon society by the wealthiest 10%. The wealthiest 10% of America were the ones opposing a social safety net. You want to end welfare? End corporate welfare. The American taxpayer should not subsidize Exxon-Mobil. And they are just one example of a broken system, tilted in favor of the few.

With all due respect Fred, the average pay gap according to the US Census is around 19.5% or a women earns 80.5% of what her male counterpart makes. This varies by state, race and age but 80.5% is the average. I have not read RBG’s book, but clearly if we still have this disparity in pay between men and women no one else has read it either. Kavanaugh is a good choice for the Court.

I don't care what the police have to do to keep our community, our schools and our children safe --I don't care!!!

I go to sleep each night knowing they are out there looking out for me and my family. What ever it takes to keep the wolf from knocking on my door; I support you.

I am not taking sides I just want to say this In this world nowadays there are law enforcement officers losing their lives left and right because of stupid * * * and I think that what is more important right now until this investigation of Officer Simpson is done and over with and the findings has been released We the citizens of Madison need to THANK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF OUR OFFICERS FOR PUTTING ON THAT UNIFORM AND GOING OUT AND PUTTING THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE TO KEEP US AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE IN THIS WORLD AS THEY CAN DO.YOU ALL MAY NOT LIKE SOME OF THEM BUT YOU KNOW WHAT IF YOU ALL THINK YOU CAN DO BETTER THEN PUT YOUR * * * OUT THERE AND SEE BECAUSE NOBODY IS PERFECT AND WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES AND SOME JUST DON'T GET CAUGHT.

Heard Officer Trapp didn't last long at MPD. Was just sworn in this last February. Anyone know why he was fired? Visiting his GF while on duty is the rumor and wrecking the police car on the way. Supposedly had been warned a couple times. Does anyone have any better or reliable information as to why this new officer didn't make it a year with MPD?

Peggy, did you realize RBG paved the way for woman to be paid the same as men for doing the same job. Do you realize she broke down barriers for woman who serve in the military to receive the same benefits as men. She wrote the book on gender equity just as Thurgood Marshall did for minority groups. RBG believes the constitution should work for all because we were created equal. Judge Kavanaugh believes the same thing except you need to be a graduate of Georgetown Prep then you can receive all the benefits This country provides.

Hey Fred, I thought RBG was in NZ since Trump won in 2016. Was she a liar when she made that statement?

Fred the reason Kavanaugh is not in Ruth Bader Ginsburgs league is because Kavanaugh has a pulse.

For most dangerous occupation you have to consider whether you want to look at potential injury or actual injury. Cops have the potential to be shot, but the reality is, when you just look at Madison, they're not getting shot.
Correctional officer is also a pretty dangerous occupation, they're being assaulted every day and every week in places like Pendleton and Plainfield, but it's not happening at the Madison prison. Is the potential there? Yes. But it's not a "dangerous" job because the demographics and past performance do not support that label.
If a cop or correctional officer makes the paper in Madison for something bad happening to them, it's most likely for misconduct, not injury.
The most dangerous occupation is that of a factory worker, and it's not just the visible and recordable accidents. It comes from people that are treated like replaceable machinery and given few breaks and forced to work through all sorts of heat and cold. To stand 8 and 12 hours a day, 6 and 7 days a week.
Before long the back and foot pain is so intense, they turn to drugs to get through another shift. Whether meth, heroin or prescriptions from the doctor, they're hooked, and before long, their body and their lives begin to manifest real injury that no Gang of 8 employer will take responsibility for.
If you want to talk about worker injuries, the factory is where the statistics will support the title of most dangerous.
