Social Security as Insurance vs. Welfare vs. Saving Once Again

Deinonychus antirrhopus, in this post,  revisits the "Is Social Security saving, welfare, and/or insurance question" following up on this post on the site two days before (my response to the earlier post is here). The vehicle generating the discussion is this post from my comment on a Robert Samuelson column.  My response to the latest post at Deinonychus antirrhopus is in the comments.  Brad DeLong also commented on my Samuelson post here.  In addition, Angry Bear weighs in nicely here on social insurance.
