After the Dust Settled

Now that the dust has settled from the November 2 mid-term elections it is interesting how the left/progressives/liberals/Democrats are behaving.  The media has grabbed the horn by the bull and proclaimed that the results were not a repudiation of Obama’s policies by the American people, was not about Obamacare (it is interesting that this label has stuck), was not a victory for the Tea Party, or the American electorate is just too stupid except where favored Democrats were re-elected.  So why did the Democrats lose so badly?  Some of the themes center around voter stupidity, racism, Obama being too centrist (WTF), and my favorite…Fox News.  Scott Spiegel listed the “Top 10 excuses” at NewsRealBlog. 

Social Security “Trust” Fund

Social Security wisdom passed along by Rich:

History Lesson on your Social Security Card that you won’t see in the main-stream media–now or ever.  Learn these facts–they’re relevant!!!

  •  Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes.  Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to  use it anyway and the message was removed.  I compared my SS Card with my daughters and the note regarding it not to be used as identification has been removed.
