A Bit Torn

I'm glad that so many older Americans have suffered less in this massive economic recession than older people have historically tended to suffer in such times, because Democratic New Deal and Great Society social programs like Social Security and Medicare have not yet been dismantled by the Republicans who despise them, but I'm not so glad that so many of these older Americans seem to BE the Republicans who despise them and who want to devote their last years to the sick sad selfish sociopathic struggle to ensure that nobody else (especially, you know, "those people") has access to such programs ever again.
