    for the Obama presidency. After all, he hasn't even been Coronated for his second term yet, and he has already offered up Social Security dilution as a way to divert funds to his Endless Pointless Wars.

      you are not allowed to frame it that way.

      Lieberman should never have let that cat out of the bag.  Retirement ships make loose lips.  

      Look, it's the people's fault for getting into so much debt and the Democrats' fault for being such big spenders (even though it was Reagan and Bush who ran up the debt).  We have to have shared sacrifice.  A million jelly beans for the Dept of Death and one jelly bean for the American people to divide amongst them.

      •  If congress messes with freedom of the internet (3+ / 0-)

        we get all up in arms, outraged enough to confront our reps - couldn't we, shouldn't we, use the same type of energy to stop our reps from supporting the MIC, in lieu of supporting American citizens, force congress to leave enough of a safety net to keep people going in this time of so few jobs for so many out of work people? to help the needy, the disabled, the elderly.

        Why do we have to give up so much, that is truly needed?

        Why not end the wars, the Afghan war, the drone wars, stop being the global police force, turn the world around the other way?

        How about some of that "smart diplomacy" instead of a massive MIC going even more massive?
