    With Cuts to Social Security, Medicare

         A headline I hoped I would never see. At least if it were President Romney proposing it I wouldn't have such a bitter taste in my mouth. I could have righteous anger instead of sadness and disillusionment.
         Is this his idea of "balance"? Come out for gay marriage and simultaneously attack the New Deal social safety net?

    Greenbell said elsewhere:

    Distract them with the social wedge issues
    and screw them in the fine print.
    I guess we vote for the austerity hawk who is in favor of gay marriage, rather than the one against it.

    To keep our faces turned toward change, and behave as free spirits in the presence of fate--that is strength undefeatable. (Helen Keller)
