"The Third Way," Indeed!
If you're a political junkie, you're probably familiar with The Third Way, an allegedly "centrist" group of alleged Democrats.
There's been a hoopla in the past few days about a Third Way op-ed in the hallowed opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal, a place where the opinions of Suzanne Somers on the Affordable Care Act are considered worthy of publishing.
The op-ed, which you can read here, is your basic sky is falling piece about Social Security. In 1980 or 1981 I debated a John Birch Society member on a Christian radio station about the exact same subject. The numbers proved, if I remember her correctly, that Social Security wouldn't be around in 10 years. Today it's not the wacko right I'd have to debate, it's the wacko centrists.
But who are these guys, really?
The most left-wing web site I visit is something called Daily Kos. They did the work, so we don't have to.
