Quote for the Day – The President on Republicans’ wish to privatize Social Security


“I’d have thought, after being reminded how quickly the stock market can tumble, after seeing the wealth people worked a lifetime to earn wiped out in a matter of days, that no one would want to place bets with Social Security on Wall Street; that everyone would understand why we need to be prudent about investing the retirement money of tens of millions of Americans. But some Republican leaders in Congress don’t seem to have learned any lessons from the past few years. They’re pushing to make privatizing Social Security a key part of their legislative agenda if they win a majority in Congress this fall.”

– Barack Obama

No one seems to learn lessons from anything anymore.

A Lesson for Saturday Night…

Want to know the Age of Consent in each state? Uncle Merv will tell you:

Morning After… Theater Camp is Over

They did a great job last night, and a pretty near full house of family and friends showed their appreciation with applause and laughs and after-show affirmations of wonder that all this was pulled off in only two weeks.

My congratulations to the kids and to Laura Bakin who makes it all possible.
