Social Security, The GOP, and You

I am sorry I haven't been in much of a mood to write anything here. The years of everything and anything else imaginable going wrong with my life have finally caught up with me. Yes, things are improving, a job, a possible promotion, and good references for the next job I seek are all improvements. But just the same, I am just feeling “meh” all the time. But, we have an asshole in our mists.. Well several, and they are all running for president. So, right now, I am going to bend your ear about Social Security.

Debtors Prison

Back in the day, if you owed me money, I could imprison you.  Sure, its mostly illegal today, I can sue you, I can get a judgement against you, but I can't have you arrested, placed in a sweatshop to pay me the judgement and the cost of having you be there.  But, its still legal, its still in use, it is still happening, everyday in the United States.

The Victim Card...

I am going to be slow for a while, until I get over this nasty sinus infection, and get hours settled down at this new job.  Yeah, after what feels like a lifetime, I have a real job.  Still need help, but I will persevere...  I always do.  But I am taking a few minutes to address something that +WitchyWays brought to my attention, and got me to think about some things (speaking of which, she is really quiet).
