No one sets the record straight on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid better than Alex Lawson. Alex, the Executive Director of Social Security Works say's Mitch McConnell actually told the truth a couple of weeks ago when he said the Republicans were going to cut the big three. "No doubt about it, they're coming for your Medicare and Social Security, something they've wanted to do since 1935". Republicans love to refer to these programs as "entitlements rather than what they really are "earned benefits".

3 minute audio sample from the 106 minute nature soundscape recording; “Birdsong Among the Ruins”. Listen to the complete recording: https://www.listeningearth.com/play/album/98AmongRuins.php Termessos is an ancient city in the mountains near the Aegean coast of Turkey. 2000 years ago it was a vibrant city in an impregnable location surrounded by high mountains. Then an earthquake destroyed the city's aqueduct, and the site was abandoned. To visit Termessos today is to find its ancient ruins overgrown with mature forest and alive with birdsong. Jays prowl among fallen columns and wrens hop among collapsed walls. Nightingales sing from dense vegetation that has reclaimed the valley floor. Tits and chaffinches flit among the trees that overhang broken pathways and pavements. This recording lets you hear what the valley sounds like today. It begins near the ruined Temple of Artemis, its remaining gateway silhouetted against the approaching dawn. The first birdsong swells till the valley echoes with a rich dawn chorus. With daylight, the soundscape settles into ever-shifting patterns of birdsong. Later we hear the rasping calls of jays, likely birds descended from those that once lived alongside the cities' inhabitants, no doubt watching them astutely for feeding opportunities. We conclude with the song of a wren drifting across the well-preserved amphitheatre, which is situated spectacularly in the upper city with a commanding view of the surrounding mountains.
