Goodnight, moon 

It's really grotesque to watch Bush "assuring Seniors that their benefits are safe" (Reuters).

What's the ethical basis of Bubble Boy's "assurance"? The essence of modern Republicanism: Screw you Jack, I've got mine.

What he's really telling seniors is that, since their own benefits are safe (as if), they can forget about the next generation's.

In other words, the Republicans goal is as it has been: To destroy Social Security as an intergenerational compact. That's the subtext of Bush's "assurance."

P.S. The protestors had the wrong slogan on their signs. It shouldn't be "Don't privatize my Social Security," but "Don't privatize our Social Security."
