    I will be the dog that doesn't vote.

    I am 62 years old.  There is not a chance in hell that I am going to go into the polls in 2014 and 2016 and vote for the party that cuts Social Security.  

    Because believe you me, if they do it now.  They will do it again.  Next time it will be worse.

    If you don't stop it now.  You will never stop it.  The programs are not being reformed.  No new revenue is being brought into the programs.  They are simply being raided to pay down the Bush War deficit and the Bush now Obama tax cuts for the almost very rich.

    In return affluent seniors (affluent defined as seniors rich enough to own a cat) will be asked to share dinner with kitty.

      both Senators to tell them in no uncertain terms that I will expend all the effort I can muster to get them out of office asap.

      As I told a staffer from Rep. Rick Larsen's (Dino Wa.) that called me the other day, this is a line in the sand and no excuse will work, no ifs ands or buts.

      Forget their political careers this will harm people long after they are gone from office.
