"We are the hope of the future," sayeth Obama. We can "remake this world as it should be." Believe in me and I shall redeem not just you but your country -- nay, we can become "a hymn that will heal this nation, repair this world, and make this time different than all the rest."
Let's Forget About Our Troubles And Cares And Join Our Merry Baby-Boomer Pals At
I was reading that last post, and some of the comments, and you know, it is a little bit gloomy. Maybe Obama will have the charisma and smarts to turn this entitlement thing around. After all Nixon enacted price controls and drank Mai-tais with Chou En Lai. Now the whole 'You Get An Individual Check Adjusted For Inflation, Grandpa' thing is going right out the window. The bourgeous individualistic approach to retirement is unaffordable and contributed to Global Warming. There is nothing in the constitution that says the government owes you anything and SSI was just a tax paid into the General Fund; the law governing how its distributed can be modified in any fashion, you dont have an individual account like with a pension fund or an insurance company.
There are no rules. In fact, with our Living Constitution Associate Justice Leahy will guide us away from the sexist and patriarchal 'Bill Of Rights' and inject a much-needed flexibility into our concept of 'Freedom Of Association'. You see, what the Founding Fathers surely would have meant if they had only had access to the internet, is Free Association; association with others in your demographic designation For Free! And so us seniors can look forward to......
