22. That would work initially, but not after the government got organized.
Consider all that is happening. First, we had Bush reversing Posse Comitatus (sp), then we had the NDAA Section 32 by Obama, now the drones multiplying like rabbits. There is little doubt we are in the nascent stages of inverse facism (corporate controlled type). The first step of the elimination of entitlements--done by a Democrat--was the payroll tax cut on Social Security. This was more symbolic than having any real force. And what did the people do? They acquiesced... And if they now do it a third time, that tax cut will never be reduced. The rich are going after it all. But there are people in the way. And if that first check is reduced as you say, others will join. But they will not be coming together to sit. Will Bill and Emma are feeding Billy week-old milk under a freeway overpass because Lloyd Blankfein (pubic enemy number one) was able to get entitlements cuts, the nothing-left-to-lose crowds will not be coming somewhere to sit. I appreciate your response. I am NOT with those who say Obama is making "serious entitlement reforms" statements to give himself wiggle room. We should know shortly what will happen as more initial steps in the entitlement redo, but, for me, buddy; I didn't crawl under houses through rat-crap, dead dogs and termites for 40 years to have my social security stripped. My wife and I will stand and fight with the others unwilling to live like serfs. I think an example needs to be made. Sorry, if I have been too forceful. I know this is not exactly the Johnny Tremayne board, but I try to be honest to posters such as you who took the time to offer a well-thought lengthy response to my post. Liberos vivere, aut mori durum.
(No time to check spelling. Going to be late to work where I donate to entitlements.)
