Kevin Zeese's "Politics As Usual Doesn't Work" and Scott Harris' "Is Obama About to Betray Those Who Re-Elected Him Less Than Two Months Ago?" and both explain how Barack (and Nancy Pelosi) is about to harm and gut Social Security.
I went to lunch with a co-worker yesterday. She's a very nice person. She's also not political. She watches shows about taxidermy and hoarding and whatever else passes for 'reality' on TLC and similar stations. She's funny and has a good sense of humor. She's getting ready to retire, however, so I discovered, she's finally paying attention to the news.
We're government employees which means we get pensions. And it's not a big pension. So we'll need Social Security as well. And so she brought up how Barack was fighting to save our Social Security -- fighting the Republicans. I said, "No, no, no."
And I explained to her what was going on.
But that's not what MSNBC told her!
She finally decides to pay attention to the news and she does it by going to the MSNBC talk shows?
So I'm printing up those two articles because they talk about the events (especially with regard to Pelosi and the inflation issue) that I was talking about to her at lunch and she was like, "Stan, I think you've heard wrong or misunderstood because I watched MSNBC for three hours last night and this is not what is going on."
I doubt reading it will convince her -- you know the power of TV -- but at least she'll know that I wasn't just making things up.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
