What a crock, and politicians be damned. It's the hopes and dreams and life's work of tens of millions of everyday Americans that these self-proclaimed free-market punks and fetishists have been sending up in smoke. It's that Romney-love for the financial economy where money lives over the real economy where people live. It's the idea that financial gain justifies human cost, and it's all an ever-expanding pile of shame and disgrace. How much has real median household income fallen so far this year I wonder? Do you think the share of wealth regained since June 2009 going to the top 10% has fallen below 100% yet? That's the sort or crap that amoral markets and your bozo reactionaries have bought for us. Nothing but one great big miserable failure.

Yeah. The guilty. I'm on their case, 24/7. You might end up as collateral damage.

Apparently not an early adopter. If you didn't see something happening in the mid and late 1950's. If you didn't see the sharp turns of the early 1960's, then I'm sure the mid and late 1960's might indeed have come as a complete surprise to you. Remember that group Asleep at the Wheel?

Well, clearly you would have.

Freaking libertarians. You know I saw it suggested once that all these "Road to Damascus" libertarians are actually Bushie neocons who were too weak to stand up and take the hit when that whole colossal screw-up came crashing down, so they all rebranded themselves as libertarians and claimed to have had nothing to do with it. I don't know how true any of that is though.
