“One line I’d draw would be on raising the eligibility age for Social Security and Medicare. It sounds fair, since people are living longer. But it isn’t. Lower income workers are the ones who find it hardest to keep working after 65. And they’ll get penalized with lower benefits.”

― Gail Collins

“For years I’ve been hearing 20-somethings say they don’t expect Social Security to be around when they hit 65. Eventually, I came to realize that they really mean that they just don’t expect to be 65. Or 40. Neither did I, when I was 22.”

― Gail Collins

“I used to like John McCain, too, but I must admit that was because he was bucking his party to do things I agreed with. I would not have had that reaction if, say, Bernie Sanders decided to rebel out of principle and support privatizing Social Security.”

“The retirement age needs to be raised. A portion of Social Security ought to be privatized, if not all. And there probably needs to be some means testing. It’s a Ponzi scheme that’s not sustainable.”

“First of all, a giant corporation probably shouldn’t be being hacked by teenagers. I put that on the corporation, not the teenagers. Teenagers are going to do what teenagers are going to do – rebelling. But if they’re able to hack a big corporation, that seems like the corporation should be better at security.”

“This issue of border security is not about, about ethnicity. I sit there on occasion with 10 or 12 sheriffs from my district, many of which are Democrats with last names like Reyes, with last names like Herrera and Lucio. And they are crying out for border security as well. So again, this is not an issue about being anti-Mexican.”

“Most people who aspire to be president don’t have a foreign policy and national security background. The exception was certainly Hillary Clinton.”

― Jack Keane

“Senator Clinton is very knowledgeable about national security and is probably going to be strong on defense.

― Jack Keane

“In 2012, General Dempsey, General Petraeus directed the CIA, Secretary Panetta and Secretary Clinton recommended to the president to robustly arm and train the Syrian moderates. He says no.

“We’ve overmedicated kids. Quite frankly, some of the overmedication of kids are because welfare moms want to get additional benefits, and if they can put them on SSI through maintenance drugs, they can also put them on Social Security disability and get a separate check. That is wrong on every single level.”

“The people who support Mr. Curbelo’s campaign are people who oppose Medicare and Social Security, want to reform it to take it away from our seniors, and oppose a minimum wage.”

― Joe Garcia

“The full retirement age is 67 and the lifespan is 80, so when they first conceived Social Security, they didn’t think they were going to be paying benefits for 13-15 years. That’s one of the reasons why this pyramid scheme isn’t working.”

“Security is a complicated idea and one with an immense potential to trap us – that was one lesson I learnt from my father.”

― John McCain

“On Putin’s order, Russian security services try to destabilize NATO allies the U.S. has sworn to defend.”

― John McCain

“The president has promised greater border security. We can agree to that. A literal wall might not be the most effective means to that end, but we can provide the resources necessary to secure the border with smart and affordable measures.”

― John McCain

“TSA serves as the operator, administrator and regulator for the nation’s transportation security. But in fact, the TSA bureaucracy does all it can to thwart any conversion to a system with more private-sector operations and strong federal oversight and standards. This agency cannot, and should not, do it all.”

― John Mica

“Other countries, such as Israel, successfully employ behavior detection techniques at their airports, but the bloated, ineffective bureaucracy of TSA has produced another security failure for U.S. transportation systems.”

― John Mica

“What we’re going to do is try to get TSA out of the human resources and personnel business and into the security business to connect the dots.”

― John Mica

“We’re not trying to harass the average American. We need to convert this now to a risk-based system, with TSA concentrating and focusing on intelligence, on security, setting up again the parameters of which we do this.”

― John Mica

“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.”

“I did not want to provide a blueprint or roadmap for the terrorists, saying ‘Here are our new security procedures’.”

― John Pistole

“Many people crave security and stability rather than risk-taking, and that doesn’t make them any less American. They are the workers rather than the job creators, and all societies need both.”

― John Podhoretz

“I really believe that we don’t have to make a trade-off between security and privacy. I think technology gives us the ability to have both.”

― John Poindexter

“One of the reasons I continue to speak out is that the solutions to the counterterrorism problem involve other parts of the national security community – especially other elements of the Department of Defense, State, FBI, Homeland Security and the staff.”

― John Poindexter

“I think that’s the main threat in Bosnia and Rwanda and Zaire. There doesn’t seem to be much willingness to engage these problems unless they directly affect national security interests.”

― John Pomfret

“We’re probably going to see some post-2014 military presence – some U.S. presence and a NATO presence – and while we’ve got much work to do in the next 29 months, we’ll have additional time later for the continued professionalization of the Afghan security forces.”

“Germany, I think, was first to substitute a Social Security program for its elderly based on this premise, that is, that we would tax workers to pay retirement benefits for those retired.”

― John Shadegg

“With no other security forces on hand, U.S. military was left to confront, almost alone, an Iraqi insurgency and a crime rate that grew worse throughout the year, waged in part by soldiers of the disbanded army and in part by criminals who were released from prison.”

― John Twelve Hawks

“We promote domestic savings by also things like the personal accounts associated with the president’s Social Security initiative, which over time would generate more savings.”

― John W. Snow

“We have a serious structural deficit problem. And it needs to be addressed. The president is trying to address it through reforms of Social Security, but the problem is there with other entitlement programs like Medicare and Medicaid.”

― John W. Snow

“Social Security represents an $11 trillion unfunded obligation. And when I say unfunded obligation, I mean we have to come up with $11 trillion at some point to make the system whole.”

― John W. Snow

“What we are seeing now is customers shifting their attention from security products like firewalls and intrusion sensors, to the policies that need to be in place, and the technologies that help them enforce policy compliance.”

― John W. Thompson

“First, our focus on security is on the infrastructure itself. So it is all about how you protect the network, the device, and the application that is riding on the server.”

― John W. Thompson

“We think the managed security services opportunity is enormous and so we have been an active participant and probably the largest firm in this space outside of an IBM or EDS, which does large outsourcing contracts.”

― John W. Thompson

“The U.S. and Israel probably lead the way in terms of venture investment in technologies companies focused on the security paradigm. That is quite encouraging.”

― John W. Thompson

“One of the things that has been truly incredible to observe though, is the amount of venture investment that has gone into early stage security technology.”

“Without education, we are weaker economically. Without economic power, we are weaker in terms of national security. No great military power has ever remained so without great economic power.”

“All the nations that are adjacent to Afghanistan have a vested interest in the future stability and security of Afghanistan.”

“If the militarily most powerful – and least threatened – states need nuclear weapons for their security, how can one deny such security to countries that are truly insecure? The present nuclear policy is a recipe for proliferation. It is a policy for disaster.”

― Joseph Rotblat

“We are told that the possession of nuclear weapons – in some cases even the testing of these weapons – is essential for national security. But this argument can be made by other countries as well.”

― Joseph Rotblat

“Under the rule of law, if the government wants to prevent firms from outsourcing and offshoring, it enacts legislation and adopts regulations to create the appropriate incentives and discourage undesirable behaviour. It does not bully or threaten particular firms or portray traumatised refugees as a security threat.”

“Al Qaeda attacked the U.S.S. Cole and bombed several U.S. embassies in East Africa in the late 1990s. We knew who did it, but we didn’t go after them. Instead, we beefed up security at our embassies and changed the Navy’s rules of engagement. It only served to embolden Al Qaeda.”

“It’s true, I had hacked into a lot of companies, and took copies of the source code to analyze it for security bugs. If I could locate security bugs, I could become better at hacking into their systems. It was all towards becoming a better hacker.”

― Kevin Mitnick

“I characterize myself as a retired hacker. I’m applying what I know to improve security at companies.”

― Kevin Mitnick

“What happens with smaller businesses is that they give in to the misconception that their site is secure because the system administrator deployed standard security products – firewalls, intrusion detection systems, or stronger authentication devices such as time-based tokens or biometric smart cards. But those things can be exploited.”

― Kevin Mitnick

“I get hired by companies to hack into their systems and break into their physical facilities to find security holes. Our success rate is 100%; we’ve always found a hole.”

― Kevin Mitnick

“Hacking is exploiting security controls either in a technical, physical or a human-based element.”

― Kevin Mitnick

“A company can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on firewalls, intrusion detection systems and encryption and other security technologies, but if an attacker can call one trusted person within the company, and that person complies, and if the attacker gets in, then all that money spent on technology is essentially wasted.”

― Kevin Mitnick

“Most people assume that once security software is installed, they’re protected. This isn’t the case. It’s critical that companies be proactive in thinking about security on a long-term basis.”

― Kevin Mitnick

“My hacking involved pretty much exploring computer systems and obtaining access to the source code of telecommunication systems and computer operating systems, because my goal was to learn all I can about security vulnerabilities within these systems.”

― Kevin Mitnick

“Then again, my case was all about the misappropriation of source code because I wanted to become the best hacker in the world and I enjoyed beating the security mechanisms.”

“Businesses should absolutely set aside funding in their budgets for security consultants. Unless there is an expert on staff, and there usually is not, it needs to be outsourced.”

― Kevin Mitnick

“Companies spend millions of dollars on firewalls, encryption, and secure access devices and it’s money wasted because none of these measures address the weakest link in the security chain: the people who use, administer, operate and account for computer systems that contain protected information.”

“There’s a feature on Facebook where you can enable security that checks the device you’re coming from. By default these features are likely off, but as a consumer, you can enable them.”

“If I needed to know about a security exploit, I preferred to get the information by accessing the companies’ security teams’ files, rather than poring over lines of code to find it on my own. It’s just more efficient.”

“A lot of companies are clueless, because they spend most or all of their security budget on high-tech security like fire walls and biometric authentication – which are important and needed – but then they don’t train their people.”
