  •  if you're going to put words in my mouth, (7+ / 0-)

    at least read the source material through.  and i know i have said this directly to you before:  i have NEVER been all "yay cahined CPI!" and i have ALWAYS qualified that switching to chained CPI would have to be structured to protect the elderly poor.

    but you know as well as i do that for every senior who needs SS, there is one for whom it is pocket change.  

    now enough about SS, hey, and efuckingnough about me.  because this diary is really about the AWB.  SS only comes in when one ponders the electoral consequences of pursuing an AWB.  speak to that.

      enough about SS!

      It's you who tied gun control to Social Security, now you want us to stop talking about Social Security?

      I don't often reference a poster's past posts and statements, but I think doing so is called for in this case, because you want to generate opposition to gun control by pushing a liberal hot button -- Social Security cuts -- even though you've supported such cuts.

          ...Social Security, wouldn't it be simpler to edit it out of the title and the body of the diary?

          Scolding folks from discussing topics that you yourself bring up in the title and in the diary itself seems unnecessary, when such an alternate and extremely effective solution exists.

          •  yes, i typed the words "social security" (1+ / 0-)

            that does not make this diary about social security.  i have a diary titled "2, 4, 6, 8, scott walker sucks," but is not about sucking and really even wasn't about scott walker.

            the point here is not to rehash for the umpteenth time what we should do about social security.  

            this diary is about AWBs and what they might mean for the electoral fates of dems.  social security was used to make the point, nothing more.
