I have a new policy. Every time someone uses my zip code to evaluate my statements, I will remind readers of the highly atypical, mind-altering bohemian environs of my critics.

The future growth rate is hardly as simple a thing as "truth" or its opposite.

We're doing a bit more than kvetching, you kvetch. In summary, we are:
1. circulating destructive criticism of privatization plans (tax increases, benefit cuts, and less security)
2. pointing out the uncertain nature of current, pessimistic projections
3. downplaying the opposition's depiction of the magnitude of the problem;
4. pointing out the self-interest of privatization advocates
5. motivating benign solutions.
6. defending the concept of redistributive social insurance.
Struggle resolutely to rise above defeatist trotskyist sectarian marginalization and lead the broad, social-democratic masses of just plain folks to victory!
There's your pep rally.
