Humpday morning

I totally love Charlie Pierce, but I think he's wrong and Susie Madrak (who I also love) is right about this, because 80% of the country has said loud and clear that they don't want Obama's awful Grand Bargain.

So, yes, when it comes to some basic understanding of what the government should do, there's no red America or blue America, there's just the United States of America, and we don't want to destroy Social Security just so "we" can "compete" with China to be even more of a slave-labor nation than they are.

Social Security is good for us. It keeps money being injected into the economy, circulating and creating more positive activity. Never mind even that it also keeps old people from dying in our streets, it keeps money out there creating jobs. It's part of our real national security structure.

Social Security really does protect our freedoms, more certainly than the Department of Defense ever can.

Don't let them break it.
