    LNN reacted to TrueTomHarley in Sing Along With Trump   
    Okay, I shouldn’t get into this. I really shouldn’t. I really really shouldn’t. But..   https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-posts-video-of-himself-singing-green-acres-theme-song-ahead-of-farm-bill-signing   I’m sorry, but I like it. If only this fellow was not so bashful...   Probably I over-analyzed this, but...   1) Hootersville is to NYC as Washington is to Manhattan. (It works if you are ridiculing ‘the swamp’)   2) Melania, like Lisa, did not want to leave her home.   3) As much as politicians like to carry on about the dignity they think they are owed, the people governed rarely think that the job done is so laudable that they should not take their dose of ridicule instead. And there are few things I relish more than puncturing the assumed dignity of pompous ones.   Whether this is a good idea or not, I’ve not the foggiest clue. But the sense of unabashed humor displayed absolutely cracks me up. It is the kind of thing that I might do if I was but bright enough to think of it.   Incidentally, it took a very long time for me to realize that the occasion was his signing a farm bill, because no comments I read on Twitter made any mention of that. They all advanced, in the strongest possible terms, their authors contempt for what an embarrassment he was. None of them recognized the context. They all took it for pure unexpected idiocy coming straight out of left field, with no connection to anything.   And I’m sure it doesn’t hurt to add that I absolutely loved the Green Acres show— probably THAT is what prompts my writing—for the coordinated lunacy on display, all directed at Oliver, as though it was he that was crazy & not the other way around. I mean, whenever some absolutely loopy thing happened, only he was flummoxed. To everyone else it was the most natural thing in the world.

    LNN got a reaction from Health and Medicine in Be careful buying food licked by dogs at your local Starbucks   
    The food display looks enticing to you doesn't it?

    Well... it also is lickable and a temptation that some dogs also find irresistible


    Think twice before wrapping your fingers around that sandwich or wrap.. 
     
    And no... this wasn't a "service dog"
    Public Health in restaurant establishments in the United States has plummeted over the past few years unfortunately.
    People years ago would have been horrified by this.
     
    But isn't a dogs tongue supposedly cleaner than a humans?   (why do I doubt this wives tale?)

    LNN reacted to JW Insider in Social Security is dipping into its reserves for the first time in 36 years.   
    There are about 4 sides to this story, and each has a little bit of truth to it. The one with the most truth and the most evidence behind it is the one that Allen Smith (PhD) gives here:
    https://www.fedsmith.com/2013/10/11/ronald-reagan-and-the-great-social-security-heist/
    This differs from another version, actually almost identical to SSA's own version, found on the same Website, https://www.fedsmith.com/2015/12/08/the-myth-of-the-missing-social-security-trust-fund/
    But if you read between the lines, it's easy to see that most of the second version is just spin (propaganda) that actually ends up supporting the first link. It inadvertently admits many of the key points necessary to understand the fraud. The first link blames Reagan, Greenspan and Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, and Obama, who have given evidence that they actually understood the scheme, but were happy to go along with it. My youngest son, in 2012, took economics courses from his university's Economics Dept Chair, who was simultaneously one of Obama's primary economics advisors. My son came away from these classes believing that economics at this school was the most corrupt of all their departments, claiming to teach modern western economics as if it were a science, but angrily denouncing certain questions about facts as if they were really running a cult.
    At any rate the first link must be read before a realistic discussion of Social Security can start. The basic idea is that Reagan and Greenspan were con men who ripped off the SSA for $2.7 Trillion with no plan to pay back a cent. They needed it because supply-side "trickle-down economics" (Reaganomics) was a complete failure, but they couldn't admit it. The money was used to avoid an even bigger deficit and was used in order pay for the highest priority government programs like:
    temporary, pseudo-tax breaks for middle class that can be nullified through fees and other new costs put upon the middle class (including the taxing of Social Security by Reagan), actual permanent tax breaks for the rich, spending to enrich military contractors, slush funds for internal government spending. One point of the article is that SSA is not unfixable because it was never broken in the first place. These 20-year-out projections have always been lies that were not based in reality. There is no fund to dip into. It is true that there is borrowing trouble now, but the plan to cover population age disparity was already built into the fund that Reagan figured out how to "loot." It was exactly what would have now been needed to cover the level of borrowing that is now being done to cover the next 20 years, until the age population disparity evens out again.
