Oh, look!

Another hippie who apparently wasn't taught about non sequiturs in school!

On March 12, my mother would have been 108. She would have been overjoyed and frightened at the same time.

When George Herbert Walker Bush was running for president the first time, she told me, “Everyone 65 and older is going to be thrown out on the street to starve and die!” I laughed, saying: “Mother, that is silly.”

Today, I'm glad she's not here. Greg Abbott, Texas' esteemed attorney general, is going to sue the U.S. government. The Express-News says Texas and 12 other states are questioning the constitutionality of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment insurance, etc.
Re: the last paragraph -- How could the Express-News print something like that? Those state AGs filed suit over the constitutionality of the health care bill that no one's read, not of Social Security, Medicaid, etc. And even if they were questioning those programs, how would that have anything to do with seniors being thrown out on the street to starve and die? One wonders what Jeanne Mundorf and/or those who think like her are going to do when there's no money left to fund those programs.
