A thought on Bush's "mandate"
This whole push to destroy Social Security under a set of hardly believable lies about saving it is being taken, if I'm not mistaken, as a signal that BushCo is empowered by their 1% "mandate".
I just read a story by David Sedaris where he talked about his mother asking him to share his Halloween candy. Rather than give up a single precious candy bar, he shoved all of them in his mouth. It was eat the candy now or never, was his thought.
I hope that's what's going on. They are trying to destroy Social Security before America wises up and kicks Republicans out on their collective asses. It's a possibility.
