    I listen to the old farts* at the senior center whine about the government.  We're sitting in a building that is funded through local, state, and federal grants, taking advantage of all kinds of programs designed specifically for us.  Every year, there are consultants in to help people choose their Medicare drug and other providers/insurance.  Many of them live in subsidized senior housing (really nice places, BTW).  They don't see the irony, even when it's pointed out to them.  I may have to find a new place to hang out until after the election....

    * Okay, I'm old too.  They are just older than I am, either in age or in attitude.  :-)

      you need to provide the proof or expose the hypocrisy.  If we don't, who will?

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

        facts.  He's also influential with the loudmouth.  I've tried and tried myself, but loudmouth just gets a kick out of baiting me. If he can't do it with politics, he'll tell an off-color or racist joke.  The latest thing is the crap he has in four-inch letters on the back window of his pickup: "Wake up America.  Replace the dumbass."  This is in addition to the little cross in the lower left corner.  Some Christian, right?  I'm to the point now that if in engage with him again, I'm likely to rip his face off.  My friend has decided that she's going to confront him in an "innocent" way, something like, "Whose truck is that with the awful thing on the back?"

        There are others who I'll gladly correct, even if they don't want to hear it.  I don't want to get thrown out over a sorry piece of work like the loudmouth.
