    I feel like the only one on this site who thinks the guy in the hunting cap and fluffy jacket vest has the right idea…

    Entitlements. We paid into Social Security for 45 years. It is a TRUST. But everyone knows you can’t trust a politician. Meanwhile they get lifetime pension and health benefits for serving one term. Oh well, I will enjoy their services in Heaven. Senator, come here, I need to be wiped, then go slop the hogs.

    Actually I can recall 8 years of non stop whining from the Dems when Bush was in power, and before that 8 years by the Reps over Clinton, seems that you are all bad losers.

    I’m still stuck at “milk and herring juice, straight up.” Maybe that explains…something.

    The US is now Greece – the whining thieves, using the guns of government to procure their booty, now outnumber the productive.

    And yet, if we would only abolish our nonmilitary bureaucracy, the economy would roar back to a level that could cover most of the theft.

    ‘Dis country is goin’ down da tubes.’ I’ve heard that one for 40+ years now. I’m sure others have heard it longer. But then again, I don’t see the U.S. lasting as long as the Roman Empire. Less than 20 years, and it’s half way though. (I know—blah blah)

    A large part of Greece’s problems come from a failure to collect taxes from the people who can afford to pay and spending too much on their military. In that sense you are right.

    @David Brown – Judging by the way Opus is drawn, I’d say somewhere around 1984.

    Don’t think about how politicians are going about it (repaying favors from lobbyists); no, just think about the following statement and see what is wrong with it:
    “Every American should receive a good education, adequate food, and quality medical care.”
    Is there ANYTHING wrong with that statement?
