How disappointing. Bill Maher's new rule is all about how we should pit the young against the old, because the old get so much from the government; children almost nothing! Hello. What about the military. I'm quite willing to bet they get a helluva lot more than any age group per se. And I know that congresspersons get a lot more money than I do. Plus, we oldsters supposedly paid in advance for all of this--there was social security insurance and medicare insurance as I recall, taken out of my check when I was working. Oh fuck you Bill Maher. You do not know what you're talking about.

It's hard for me to understand how the Republican Party can lay claim to high moral ground when they clearly are monsters of sadism--consigning children, old people and the disabled to a category called "takers," for instance. But as to the Democrats, most of them voted to deny billions of dollars worth of food stamps to needy families when they voted for the farm bill. Apparently, no one in office speaks for simple decency any more. Surely somewhere in the Bible, there are words that urge us to take care of those who need our help. Something about Do Unto Others... and certainly even more. Don't these people swear oaths on the Bible? And of course, the Constitution, which is not on the whole a mean-spirited document.
