Political rant and spinning. that's our mornings...


I was raised (by Republicans, no less, although I turned on them and registered Democrat when I turned 18) to believe that paying taxes is patriotic. I'm wondering when it became a horrid thing. I understand there is government waste but that's never what they actually cut. Education, care for the poor and the elderly, that is NOT waste!


To further the conversation about slaps to the elderly...my 87 year old mom survives on Social Security and a small monthly check from her 401(k). She had a five-year CD that she was earning 4.5% interest. We just renewed it at 2.8% for another five years. The interest rate reduction is great for home buyers, but a real slap in the face for everyday elderly folk.
