Our very own Fairfaxcuse has ratcheded up the IQ average of our board. He recently testified in front of Congress on SSI which is his special area of knowledge and expertise. If I didn't know better I might of been fooled into thinking that he's actually smart. Kind of a cool thing to watch. He is "Dr. Wittenburg" about 15 min in. Watch toward the end the fireworks between a panel member and congressman.

Check it out....

Dr. Fairfaxcuse? I swear I have to take better notes on what you people do before the alcohol makes me forget everything.

Oh, and go to 15:50 in, if you go to 15:00 you're going to think Fairfaxcuse is aging terribly.

LOL. Yeah like I said I thought just for a second those thoughts, then that quickly passed and I realized he's really the drunken ingrate we see at the tailgates...;)

did he recommend getting rid of it?

Essentially it was a mend it don't end it approach. That there are significant problems with the current version promoting too much dependency and not enough launching off to better lives. Advised concrete approaches to a better system. Actually pretty interesting listening. As I said if I didn't know him so well I would've thought he was smart or something.
