Too bad many of us don't have the pension and perks that Simpson gets and we don't get what the 'government created' largess Obozo will get!

The second most socialist president after obama, had enough wisdom to warn America against public sector unions. He was fearful of what that would do to damage his governmental institutions. If you directly pit the public workers against the people, the people would rise up and demand that government be sliced.

Apparently Simpson is paying no attention to Paul Ryan’s stump speeches

‘You Better Get Yourself a Cave in the Adirondacks’

Makes me wonder how many caves are in the Adirondacks, and is it already too late to get one.

"'You better get yourself a cave in the Adirondacks,...'"

So he recommends that the superior folks in socialist leadership move to little hills in New York. That's pretty funny.

I have a better idea. Start up the vacations to Venus for the geniuses who brought this economy ("The Marching Morons," Cyril Kornbluth).

“'They’re not going to deal with these issues because they will get eaten by rats, by the AARP [American Association of Retired Persons] and Grover Norquist and the realtors.'"

He's right about that, although there are quite a few more socialist subgroups involved. People receiving federal funding for their over-regulating local government rackets do receive a huge chunk of the debt. And what for? For misinforming young folks and robbing those who attempt to start a new, small business or do something for themselves.

“Well, you better get yourself a cave in the Adirondacks and learn how to eat watery gruel and herbs and berries,” he said. “No, I tell you what’ll happen. The markets will shoot the hole through us.”

“And at that point – and you don’t want it to happen, and I don’t – and they don’t care about Democrats or Republicans or presidents. They care about their money,” Simpson added. “And they’ll say if any country is stupid enough to borrow $16 trillion bucks in the hole, then we’re just stupid enough—smart enough, maybe—to loan you some more money.

“And when they do that, then our country will take a real hit, and inflation will go up and interest rates will go up, and you and your young people your age will be the ones most affected, while the seniors and the money guys, most of them, will take good care of themselves,” he said."
