<quoted text>Sassy, did you call our two Senators about the cuts in S.S. amd Veterans Benefits?
Well I did and I asked both of them where they stood on these cuts, and both of their offices said "the cuts were not enough, we need deeper cuts"........when I pressed them about the S.S. and Veterans benefits cuts, both of them said they would advise the Senators about my concern.
Now this tells me they could care less about their own constiuents and more about party lines.
Most Republican Senators are for cuts to benefits "Dunlapian", as are virtually all Republican congressmen and women. They can't get more tax cuts for those who finance their campaigns without any cash in the treasury, and with the increasing costs of the baby boomers retirement and health care costs, deep cuts to benefits is the only way to get that cash.
Now that they have a Democratic President on their side proposing cuts to the two most popular government programs in history, it is only a matter of time before the FIRST ROUND of these cuts become a reality.

Reality sets in, Overtaxed. But you are still wishing your Repub. representatives could get you some more tax cuts, right?

OT, I do understand how it appears on the surface, with President Obama offering up S.S. and V.A. Benefits, which in itself sounds odd for a Democrat President. But this Democrat President didn't get elected because he was born with a "Silver Spoon" in his mouth.
Now just talking to the interns yesterday for both of our Senators, it sounded like they wanted cuts so deep that we as a nation would spiral downward out of control and do a nose dive into the abyss.
Now I really believe President Obama will be doing a bait and switch with these cuts.
But for this to happen, we all will have to wait and see!

Yes "Dunlapian" they want deep cuts, and splitting the difference is beginning to look reasonable to the public. That is the danger to these programs, that Obama's proposal is a reasonable alternative when in reality....it is taking dollars out of the pockets of those who are no longer able to work, after they have paid into S.S. all of their working lives.
You probably remember the Reagan years. When Reagan came into office Social Security was the third rail of politics. Touch it and die politically. Well the great communicator proposed a raise in the retirement age, and I predicted a political death. Tip O'Neill, a liberal by any measure, provided political cover for Reagan to get his way, not for current retirees, to hold the senior vote, but for future generations. Reagan survived and became MORE popular, as O'Neill slipped into obscurity but that third rail no longer held the same significance, largely from the cover provided by Tip.
Simply by putting chained CPI on the table, a Democratic president has innoculated future presidents and congresses from the political damage that might come from Social Security changes. Again...Pandora's box.

Seems conservatives are actually pro-sex change. They certainly are compelled to alter the gender of those who oppose them. My theory is that they are more comfortable attacking women than they are men. I have seen this occur for years on political forums. I believe this might fall into the category of "bearing false witness." ...or maybe sheer cowardice.

I have noticed that as well, OA but I suspect it has more to do with wanting to fire a shot without ammunition !

No, thats not it. Its the steroetype thing.

You know, the hysterical woman who has either worked herself up into a screraming frenzy, or perhaps a drug induced one? With the eyes as big as saucers, purple faced, veins bulging as she screams some leftist slogan...

Well, that is the stereotype that conservative men might be thinking of when they debate liberal women. And how does one debate somebody like that?

(It cant be done politely)

And on the other side of the coin, I often see Conservative men given treatment by liberals which usually takes an odd turn. Eventually, the whole thing becomes one of a liberal assuming the persona of a rebellios youthful person (even though they might actually be far older), and then they spout rebellion propaganda against the conservative as a youth would against theur father.

And all the while, the democrat in this debate might actually be 50 years older than the conservative!

Strange things go in in debates when we cant actually see the other person. Stereotypes set in and the whole thing takes on a life of its own.

And some people fuss at other folks avatar photo too.

Dear my choice to change your gender is based strictly on your feminine word choice. You my lady, write like a female.

Does that mean MGurl is really a man? I mean, she uses the language of coarse, truck driving men. I notice you don't refer to that poster as a man.

"Feminine word choices." That's funny stuff.

I haven't seen her word choice indicate anything about a male but I certainly see yours as VERY feminine indeed. Actually it was your writings we were addressing, not hers. Nice try though sugar babe.
