I love that Democratic friends of mine on Facebook are saying "call your Congressman" over Dear Leader's proposed cuts to Social Security. (This doesn't mention a possible increase in the Medicare retirement age, or whatever else is in his magic box of rocks, either now, or in 2014 when Fiscal Cliff Part Deux hits the shitscreen.)
Now, why would I do that?
O'Bummer is surely already leaning on Hairy Reed, aka Harry Reid, to take back any hint of possible opposition he has expressed to this idea.
You want to try to stop this effing train wreck?
If you're a Democrat, whether "Democrats always, right or wrong," an independent-minded Democrat, an independent-minded left-liberal of sorts like me, or whatever, there is a Plan B.
Especially if, like me, you live in a red state.
DO call your Republican Congresscritter or Senator.
Tell him (it's very unlikely to be a her) that you oppose this deal because it's not good enough. For example, if you're here in Texas? Tell John Cornyn, Lamar Smith, even Gohmert Pyle if you have the stomach, to hold out for more. Tell them to buck John Boehner.
That's the only way this gets stopped.
Of course, there's a hell of a risk.
And, if you aren't still wearing rose-colored glasses, you know that risk.
It's that O'Bummer finds even more stores to give away.
And, it is a real risk.
Because he's a liar. He's telling a tacit lie that Social Security has something to do with the deficit.
That's not just me saying that.
Ronald Reagan (and remember how much Obama likes him?) says so too:
