Quote of the Day

"This is a fakery. If they care at all about their children or grandchildren, and sometimes I doubt that -- I think, you know, grandchildren now don’t write a thank-you for the Christmas presents, they’re walking on their pants with the cap on backwards listening to the enema man and Snoopy Snoopy Poop Dogg, and they don’t like them!"

-- Centenarian Former Senator and co-chair of President Obama's deficit commission Alan Simpson

To paraphrase the great Doctor Peter Venkman, Alan has gone bye-bye. Jesus, people this old and senile shouldn't have access to a set of car keys let alone the ear of the President of the United States.

Is he talking about Eminem? Jeebus, why are any of the crackpots on the Catfood Commission (which did NOT achieve enough consensus to issue a "report")being trusted anywhere near the social security system?

What about the Republicans and Democrats who keep talking about SS as though it had anything to do with the deficit? It's a separate fund, and needs only to have the tax cap lifted or eliminated to "fix" it?

What about the reality that lowering the retirement age would have more economic benefits than any of the proposed "tweaks?"

The mind reels...

To be fair, the enema man is actually a huge issue for voters over 70.

OK, I know this dude's weird sexual fetish. Y'all know it's gotta be scatalogical, right?

OMFG. I thought this was a story from the Onion. It's all fun and games until it's actually you who has to retire on $1500 a year. I'm going to have to start stashing cash in the mattress. If I ever have an income again, anyway.
