I was amused by "Try dealing with Social Security" (March 22, Letters) advising that "to get a dose of reality, liberals should spend a day trying to communicate" with the "dysfunctional behemoth" of Social Security. Does the writer mean that only conservatives have problems communicating with the Social Security Administration? Or is the writer arguing that Social Security is in trouble and only conservatives can fix it?
As a card-carrying liberal, who, according to the writer, has no problem with Social Security, your argument doesn't persuade me to do anything. My advice would be to turn liberal. All your Social Security problems would, evidently, just go away.
By the way, the liberal nightmare is not that G-dub will run for a third term, but that another conservative would be elected and do as much damage to the nation as he did. Bush had plenty of time with a Republican majority in Congress to do what he wanted and he did. It's why the Democrats now control Congress.
Want to cure Social Security's problems? End the war and put some of the money saved into Social Security instead of tax cuts for the wealthy.
