  •  this whole thing is bullshit (13+ / 0-)

    which is bullshit on top of bullshit.

    the idea that we have to spend one second protecting social security when we have so many other things that need attention and time right now is a measure of how far we have been pushed into a corner.

    the fact that obama created this commission and selected its members is evidence enough that he is not remotely on my side.

    he may be on your side, but not mine.

    Gaia is heartbroken.

      a rotten economy, a real jobless rate close to 20%, and minority students dropping out of HS at a rate of 50-70% across the country, that we are battling our own Party about SS. The Dems are supposed to be the supporters and defenders of ordinary citizens. But any more...not so much.

      Obama is not on our side. How much more abuse do we have to take b4 we face reality and walk away from this relationship......

      over a period of ten fucking years--a time when we spent more on our military than the entire rest of the world put together-- the very idea that "we can't afford this", is idiotically jaw-droppingly laughably stoopid on the face of it.

      Any politician, of any party, who EVER makes the statement "we have to cut this program because we can't afford it", should be laughed out of town.

      We're the richest fucking nation in all of human history, and we can't afford to take care of our elderly . . .  . . . . . . . . .  .?

      Horse shit.  Pure unadulterated horse shit.
