I originally started this blog out of the frustrations that came from my more conventional journalism. After writing dozens of careful analyses determining whether or not Monsanto Corp., or Bill Clinton, or Saddam Hussein were lying or telling the truth, you just get tired of it. You want to say “well of course they’re lying! They always lie!”
Or, as I’ve said before, this blog exists as a place for me to call a motherfucker a motherfucker.
It is in this spirit that I say: the whole “fix Social Security” thing is just a scam to put your tax dollars into the hands of stockbrokers and investment firms.
I could go get you a hundred links and do a detailed breakdown of why the Republican plan will not accomplish their stated goals and whatnot, but I don’t even feel the need. Conservatives have been lying about Social Security’s impending doom for years, when really it just needs a few relatively minor adjustments to maintain. This is a naked and transparent attempt to skim off the top.
