Sabotaging Social Security: GOP uses scare tactics against system that isn't broke WorkingForChange.com (12.21.04)

That's why, after seven decades of unmitigated success in protecting seniors from the vagaries of market forces, the White House now wants to turn Social Security itself over to the vagaries of market forces. The conservative mantra, whether it comes to energy policy, war in Iraq or education, is to siphon public money into the private sector whenever and wherever possible, through such gimmicks as agribusiness subsidies, school vouchers and the hiring of private mercenaries.

'Nuff Said. More coal in your stocking America? It's gonna be a long 4 years, but we think Bush Co. is lame–ducking fast...

Josh Marshall sets out how Bush Co. is lying about Social Security as they go to war with it.

Bastards.

Light posting this week for the holidays, but we wanted folks to check out Brandoland's comments on a recent Bill Moyers' speech, and share this as our thought for the week...

Merry Xmas (WAR IS OVER) –John Lennon
(Happy Xmas Kyoko
Happy Xmas Julian)

So this is Xmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Xmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Xmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Xmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong
And so happy Xmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight

A very Merry Xmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Xmas
And what have we done
Another year over
A new one just begun
And so happy Xmas
We hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Xmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear
War is over, if you want it
War is over now

Happy Xmas


Ho Ho Ho.
