Attention! Deficit!

missed erectionBefore I begin, allow me to remind you of something...


So what are we hearing from Republicans lawmakers?

"We've got to cut the deficit, so let's privatize Social Security. We've got to cut the deficit so let's change the rules so that you can only retire at a later age. The deficit is too high so we need to reduce Social Secuirty benefits."

Fuck those people.

Social Security is fine and is in great shape for decades to come. What's not fine is that your Social Security dollars aren't in the pockets of Republicans and they HATE THAT. The sooner it's invested all safe-and-sound in some machiavellian Wall Street scheme, the better, as far as they're concerned.

You want to cut government waste? Good, then let's start by deep-sixing the Office of Faith-Based Initiatives and then move on to lopping-off Homeland Security.


Addendum: I went on a tear a couple of rants ago about how Americans are slowly destroying what's left of this beautiful Earth of ours due to their near-compulsive consumption of manufactured goods. If your attic and/or garage is full of junk, if there's a room in your house you can't get into, if you have to rent a storage facility in order to store your excess junk then you, my friend, are part of the problem.

However, uh, I'd like to say that my little screeed shouldn't count against the 16-DVD collection of George Carlin's best works which I got as a birthday present last week. (Major brownie points to Beloved Girlfriend for this.)

It's called "All My Stuff" and it's going to occupy my entertainment schedule for many weeks to come.

Today's Google Chow.

When he returned from Mount Crumpet he met Cindy Lou
The littlest Who, who was no more than two.

"I knew you'd return," she said smiling a smile
"No person alive could be so endlessly vile."

"Guess again," said the Grinch, without an inkling of purity.
"This time I've come back for your Social Security."
