Democrats are robbing Social Security for a Campaign Gimmick

See: Payroll Tax Cuts Are Worst Way To Boost Growth

We like tax cuts as much as anyone. But the fact is, we're taking money from a pay-as-you-go retirement system that's already running in the red, and replacing that cash with IOUs. We're burdening future generations so we can spend tax cuts now.

When you hear and see the news reports on the payroll tax cut that is working its way through congress, keep in mind what it really cuts. If a Republican had tried to pull this stunt, the MSM, AARP, and all the rest of the assorted welfare state advocacy class would have been up in arms and screaming to the rafters about how it would destroy the Social Security system. Yet, since Obama is a Democrat, they are silent.

Threatening, abusive and illegal comments may be reported to the proper authorities. Don't be stupid. If the CIA, FBI or the Secret Service knocks on my door and asks questions about you, I will rat you out in seconds. (Sooner if I call them about you.)

It is an unfortunate fact of life that there are people out there in the wilds of the Internet that think it cute to post racist and Nazi garbage on other peoples websites. Some of these thugs are even enabled by people who should know better. In my opinion, both the thugs and their enablers are worse than spammers.

I have recently made enemies with a particular group of these people who have done just that on another website. I don't intend to make it easy for them to do that to me.

In light of that, comment moderation will be used here on this humble and very obscure little blog.

I will check in several times each day to approve appropriate comments.

For the most part, I will allow just about any type of comment except for spam and Kilgorian excrement.
