dispatches from TJICistan | TJIC | hitting the jackpotThis is what kills me about the concept of a social contract: if it was really a contract presidents wouldn't get to re-write it regularly. Especially not with less than a majority of people wanting to redefine the terms of the deal. That's not a "contract" in any meaningful way, it's just a pleasant sounding obfuscation for "what the people who currently have power want to do."
