“I agree it would be a disaster, but the Social Security bit is just dead wrong. The government, allegedly, holds the Social Security Fund in trust and - unless someone stole the money - there is plenty in that trust to pay all SS obligations in 2011 and 2012

“I don't know about the republicans, but I was screaming blue murder as Bush borrowed and spent us into the biggest recession since the 30s. What you, gusundheit, need to realise is that it is irrelevant whether democrats or republicans are in charge, they are all addicted to spending our grandkids' money. You cannot sustain borrowing 40 cents of every dollar you spend, whether you are an individual, a company or a country. Any politician who says you can is a liar, which is why mostly only liars get elected
“Oh, Barack, you just don't get it. They don't want to cut the deficit, they want to win an election. They could care less that happens to America, as long as they win. (PS: you own party is not much better on this.)
You've heard of "Disgusted, Tunbridge Wells"? Well, I live in Holland Park and I've Had It. Up to here! An old curmudgeon, I rant and rave about things I read, see or hear in the News. Frequently sarcastic, irreverent and libertarian; often wrong - but never uncertain.
