Random Thought From A Month Ago

I had this thought in an airport at the beginning of the month, and then I forgot about it until now: If you are outraged by Bernard Madoff, you should be ready to take up arms over the government Ponzi Scheme called Social Security. Unfortunately, too many of us are more like rats fighting to get the last of the cheese before it is gone.

As for me, well, I've been resigned for years to the fact that I won't see penny one of what I'm paying in. I consider it just one of many debts I'll be paying off on behalf of the last two generations. And I'm willing to do it as long as my child's generation can start to carry this country upward again.
