It only took 21 days!

Granted, I have not been in the diner as much as usual but this morning an Obama supporter was grousing about how his son, an employee of a local municipality, had $70.00 bucks lifted from his paycheck.

It was like Christmas in January for me.

I got to gloat, slightly, about how that would happen every week until – well forever, because that is how we tax “the rich” in this country - one blue collar worker at a time.

But don’t worry.

That seventy bucks will seem like nothing in a few years when you get FREE health care, paid for by “the rich.”

Let’s see: $70.00 times three weeks so far = $210.00? Could it be that by the end of the year you would have donated $3,640.00 towards punishing “the rich?”

Boy is it expensive to teach “the rich” a lesson with your Obama vote.

And here is the kicker:

The retired father of this young family man, out $210.00 so far, says to me, just like you knew he would, “Well both sides are to blame.”

Hey, whatever makes that sting feel better.

Damn that George Bush!

Now that was worth $210.00, right?

Well, Ed -- not that the facts matter much here, but the increase is not reflective of any request made by President Obama, and it's fully dedicated to Social Security, which has been supported by Democratic and Republican Presidents, Vice Presidents, and most members of Congress since, let's see, the days of Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Those millions who now have Social Security, or will hopefully receive it someday, are thankful for the vision and solvency of the program -- thanks to Democratic and Republican Presidents, Vice Presidents, and most members of Congress since, let's see, the days of Franklin D. Roosevelt.

You're welcome that I was able to clarify this for you. Great Inaugural speech by our President today, huh? Given in the best traditions of John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan.

Hey Jimbo Baggins –
Where do they keep all those Social Security funds? Is there a special place down in D.C., or do they have an underground storage facility in Fort Knox for such important deposits? And where might I go to inspect the portfolio of investments for these funds? Perhaps they are with dear old Bernie Madoff's firm? Wunder what will happen when China says no ...

C.dog -- they keep the Social Security funds in the SS Trust Fund box, which is in a place hidden from the Republicans, who if they could get their hands on it would waste it by more handouts to their favorite corporations, to which they have provided welfare for decades. Thought you knew that.

Is that the same box Bawney Fwank and Co. raided to make all those no-verify mortgage loans? Ooops. FORWARD!

Didn't we just hear that handouts to "favorite corporations" was Capitalism?

Lessons from the Left:

Capitalism is really socialism, socialism always works.
Up is down, down is up.
Right is wron, wrong is right.
Same old stuff.
(But it works on college students and old people)

Ed –
I recall some I-talian dude that also handed out corporate favors to a few of his favorite friends. Kinda like Solyndra and a few other greenie weenies that got a little too ... cooked by the financial radiation of ... competition emanating from a nation currently financing BozO's dalliances in the business world. Kinda brings everything full circle, but we don't have to be the ones left holding BozO's bag; time to uplift by separating to achieve our full hour-glass ... figure.
