57. I keep thinking that something will come along that will bring the
Democrats or anyone out onto the street with pitchforks (metaphor). But I now realize that won't happen. Look at what makes up the voting public in this country. Sure, there are people who'll still hit the street and fight and die when the time comes. But not many... Much easier to simply email Bernie Sanders or your representative who'll smile as he's throwing the wad of paper into the roundfile. What will probably happen, at least I hope will happen, if the conservatives try and do meaningful cuts to Social Security, the boomers will hit the streets, ready to really to fight. That's what I'm hoping. There are things happening in States now so horrible, I cannot for the life of me understand why their statehouses are still standing. It is simply a different mentality. Right now, there should be people sitting around at secret locations staring at a chalkboard where some paramilitary type is doing diagrams of how the next mission will be accomplished. Oh, well...
