The Evil That They Do

Chuckles The Sensitive Woodchuck (on loan from the MSM — Mainstream Media) is a Dumbo fellow-traveler. The silly season of “Social Security is broke, we need to fix it” has begun again. The Dumbo-concern over deficits allows them to strain at the Social Security gnat, while swallowing the camel of gazillions spent in Afghanistan and Iraq to kill more than 100,000 civilians, suffer tens of thousands of wounded/dead U.S. troops, and torture a significant number of "enemy combatants" for good measure. Where's the outrage? Of course, it's aimed a geezers because their Social Security pensions are a black hole in the federal budget. Obviously, deficit-spending for our wars in Afghanistan and Iraq is essential to the national interest. If there is a Hell, may all of the Dumbos burn there for eternity. If this is a (fair & balanced) bendiction, so be it.
