"When the going gets tough, the tough threaten defenseless little old people."*

*Thus observed Stilton Jarlsberg at Hope n' Change Cartoons. Also:
. . . Barack Obama has announced that he may choose to not send out Social Security checks to senior citizens on August 3rd, sneering "there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it."

Which strikes us as a little odd. After all, if no debt ceiling agreement is reached, the government's bills will be paid
in the order that Obama decrees. And money is flowing in to Social Security every day, meaning that its "coffers" should be full-to-bustin' with cash which has allegedly been accumulating for decades...suggesting that it should be other programs that bring in no money which should be the first to go unfunded.

But nooOOOooo, the president would prefer to inflict the
greatest and most visible pain that he possibly can... essentially making his elderly hostages shriek in terror in hopes of getting the Republicans to pay a $2 trillion ransom.
Either that, or the coffers are empty because YOU didn't have any FICA payments withdrawn from your paycheck.

You must be a Republican.


  1. The government is will still take in 200 Billion each month more than enough to take care of all non discretionary spending.

  2. Once a lying Communist always a lying Communist!

  3. I wanted to say thank you for kind comments. I am sorry it took me a while to pop over and say hello.

    I appreciate your kind words and prayers.

  4. @Trestin - Obama is doing everything he can to make sure that we know that anything he wants is non-discretionary.

    @Odie - It's the same old story - they pop champagne corks while the rest of us are supposed to subsist on crumbs.

    @homeless - Hey there! We're all pulling for you.

  5. @kingshamus: Stilton Jarlberg is a genius!
