" in the case of the unfortunate taxation of Social Security benefits, the blame is on the late Senator Patrick Moynihan. "

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

One person?

You look at the great imposing granite face of the U.S. Federal
government and you choose to blame one person?

And one who is dead at that?

Does this blaming make you feel more at ease?
(after all the word blame and the word balm do have striking
similarities.)

"If thine eye offends thee, pluck it out."

Write to your congressmen.
Write a letter to the times.
Write a placard and march around the capital.

Don't be a rabbit!
Don't blame the snake!
Run!
Get a stick and practice whacking the snake on the head with it!
Throw a smaller rabbit at it!
Make friends with a mongoose!
