Thieving 1% Tuesday


Another Ayn Rand suck up rich boy.

Not a single candidate in 2016 campaigned on a promise to repeal and replace Social Security or Medicare. Anyone who did would have been soundly defeated. Indeed, unlike the Republican opponents he beat, Donald Trump promised not to touch Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid. But now that the Republicans will soon be in charge of all branches of government, destroying Social Security and Medicare is on the top of their agenda.

Two days after the election, Paul Ryan said, “With a unified Republican government, we can actually get things done.” One of those things is ending Medicare as we know it, as I and others have spotlighted. It turns out that Social Security is in the Republicans’ cross hairs, as well. This is not a surprise. Ending Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid is Republican-elite orthodoxy.

What is surprising is that the Republican establishment is so eager, it can’t wait to unveil its plans. In some ways, you can’t blame the Republican elites. They have been waiting a long time.

    Soon we will all be living in cardboard boxes or turned into Soylent Green, oldsters collecting “entitlements” will see those go away to be replaced by nothing, better get a tin cup and move to a warmer climate.

    Slopped up B Street to the Hillside Cafe in a long 15 minutes on the sticks.

      Then down the old, main walk between downtown and campus, around clockwise to the College Hill Climb and Maple Street Extension. Hard through the slush in the Maple Street Extension roadway. Said hello to Tom Brigham whilst stick walking in Michigan Street. So 55 minutes today of more than usually moderate exercise.

    All you snow-laden geezers better be careful you don’t blow a vessel with your shovels.
