Dear America: at 42, "the end is nigh" has been on the lips of people since I was a kid. "Social security will bankrupt us" is the oldest canard. "Social programs" will sink us is another along those lines. Nobody ever says "Military, Intelligence, and Security spending will bankrupt us," ironically. Strangely enough. Or, what about the "entitlements" of the brave men and women who have served their nation? Why are these sacrosanct while the welfare of our aged, our children and our most vulnerable tend to be the first to hit the chopping block?
