Hey Alive, i don't think anyone could help you (or me) to understand the political deceptions that occur under the rubric of "progressive", other than to highlight the often used leftist tactic of bastardizing words in the English language in order to shield their intentions. (e.g. "Investment in the future" as used by Obama and his Obamunists means "tax and spend with reckless abandon to purchase the loyalty of our favorite unions and crony capitalist campaign bundlers".)

A couple quotes you may enjoy as much as I do:
First in Paul’s second letter to the church of the Thessalonians (3:10)
“For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.”
Then Isaiah’s admonition to those who use deceptive speech to facilitate enriching themselves with power, wealth or both: (5:20)
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
(The latter makes me very content not to be any of the democrat leadership, especially Obama and Nutzy Pelosi.)

It is an axiom in the insurance business that insurance is not bought but sold. In 1935 Franklin Roosevelt sold Congress and Congress sold the U. S. the Social Security Act, the biggest, most comprehensive, most expensive mass insurance policy ever written. Since then its purchasers, the nation's taxpayers, have had occasion to read their policy carefully and, if they have detected no outright jokers, their reaction has been such that practically every politician in the U. S. from Franklin Roosevelt down has put revision of Social Security at the top of his must list.-  Pie from the Sky Time Magazine,...
