I think it's very important not to confuse the importance of dealing with Social Security in the long term with these short-term deficit reduction challenges. They're different issues.
The bottom line is, if somebody doesn't go through proper security screening, they're not going to go on the flight.
When I decide who to vote for as president, I ask myself who will be best for America and for the world. An important component of my answer involves my assessment of the candidate's willingness and ability to protect Israel's security, since I strongly believe that a strong Israel serves the interests of the United States and of world peace.
We must work to stabilize Social Security. We must not gamble with our nation's social insurance program, one of our most popular and effective federal programs that has remained dependable and stable for the past 70 years.
This inevitability of conflict motivates us today and echoes the reminder that freedom is not given away and our national security is not achieved without sacrifice.
The only security for the American people today, or for any people, is to be found through the control of force rather than the use of force.
Social Security has nothing to do with the deficit.
Our country also hungers for leadership to ensure the long-term survival of our Social Security system. With 70 million baby boomers in this country on the verge of retirement, we need to take action to shore up the system.
Kay Bailey Hutchison
The list of U.S. vetoes at the Security Council to protect Israeli aggression and occupation is huge.
The United States, obviously, has a great interest in helping to maintain peace and security in Europe, and we have a formal alliance, NATO, to do so.
If you want to go to the mall, you have to take security. But it's always cool. The kids are amazing.
Both peoples, both nations, deserve a nation-state of their own. Palestinians, if they wish so, will go to the Palestinian state; Jews, if they so wish, can go to the Jewish state. And we'll have to have security and demilitarization agreements between us.
I seethe at the humiliation of airport security checks.
Social Security is not just another government spending program. It is a promise from generation to generation.
The fundamental flaw in Social Security and Medicare is that they violate the 'welfare principle' in economics. The welfare principle forms the fundamental basis of all charitable work in churches and other private organizations: assist those who need help, and equally important, don't assist individuals who can take care of themselves.
One half of the world's people live on less than two dollars a day. This should concern our national security policy as well as our conscience.
Lee H. Hamilton

What's important in a cellar is having wines that have a broad range of drinkability, which California Cabernet does.

Myself, I don't think you will ever get security in the Mideast until you have what on the surface appears to be fair to both sides. You have to have leaders committed to peace, on both sides. One side can't impose a solution.
Bobby Ray Inman
This is a wonderful way to celebrate an 80th birthday... I wanted to be 65 again, but they wouldn't let me - Homeland Security.
I will not, nor will I ever, publicly divulge sensitive intelligence sources and methods. For when that happens, our national security is endangered and lives can be lost.
John O. Brennan
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
