CLEVELAND - A couple hundred protesters, worried about looming cuts to social programs, loudly raised their voices in Cleveland today, shouting, "No cuts now, no cuts ever."
They are worried about cuts to some programs that have become staples for Americans: Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
"This is a promise that our government has made to the American people, said protester Wynne Antonio. They worked in good faith all their lives and paid in to these systems and they deserve to keep them in place."
On a clear but chilly day downtown, they gathered at 11:30am first in Public Square against a backdrop of holiday decorations. The protestors came from labor unions, church groups and health care organizations.
They say a lot of people depend on the programs that could face cuts.

What could possible go wrong????
I believe we are going to have to treat this just like a major epidemic. The quickest and sometimes most humane way is a quarantine of the infected and infected areas. And let it all burn out.

A few years ago I would have argued with you. Today? Yes, I agree with you. I’ve learned over the years that it’s not the rhetoric that counts it’s the actions.
One of the most blatant set of actions is how the Homeland Security department looks at Americans. Just watch their actions it’s American citizens who seem to be the enemy and Illegal Immigrants, Islamics of any stripe who are just misunderstood and need to have extra-ordinary care given to.
I could go on but I won’t.
