      My grandmother was an organizer for the ILGWU. I belong now to the 3rd union of my working life. Some unions are great; others are absolutely despicable. So, I'm on the side of truth, justice, and the American way--and I didn't need your little jingle to figure out where that is. And when the music stops, it's still the case that there is no cut in Social Security benefits being contemplated.

        any solidarity learnt there.

        When chained cpi reduces my $3.304 VA benefit to $1,404 in purchasing power over the next twenty years, it is a fucking benefit cut.  That's my fucking music, pal, the music of a 100% disabled veteran, and that is my reality and the future I have to look forward to when it stops if so-called democrats like yourself succeed in pushing this through.

        I get it, I know when someone is pissing on my back and telling me it is raining.  As I said above, so long as gas is cheap, we can say a jingle and act like we support the troops, but as soon as we can't afford the wars anymore, then we just cut their benefits, lives are cheap too, especially when they are used up.

        Truth, justice, and the American way, is that the jingoism the kids are using now?  That is not a side, that's a slogan.

        Again, who side are you on

        Don't be a dick, be a Democrat! Oppose CPI cuts! Support Social Security and Veteran Benefits!
