WASHINGTON -The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear a traveling Christian evangelist's free-speech challenge to a University of Alabama requirement that he obtain a permit before handing out religious pamphlets and preaching from a sidewalk adjacent to its campus. The justices turned away an appeal by preacher Rodney Keister of a lower court's ruling rejecting his claim that the university's permit requirement violated free speech rights under the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment. Keister, founder of a Pennsylvania-based group called Evangelism Mission, regularly visits U.S. university campuses in hopes of spreading his Christian message to students, according to court filings.

“Everyone knows how to fix Social Security. For starters, we can gradually raise the full eligibility age.”
“Raising the retirement age would force seniors to either stay in the workforce longer or accept a greatly reduced benefit.”
“When Social Security launched in 1935, the average life expectancy for Americans was 61. That’s changed.”
