"... the fiscal crater in which Washington languishes was dug in enormous measure by an economic slow down that preceded [Obama] and by the tax cuts and military campaigns of [George W. Bush]."
Frank Bruni, International Herald Tribune, July 20th 2011. (and presumably the NYT)

Tax breaks for the rich and reduced benefits for the poor? Fair dinkum, are Republicans and the Tea-party extremists fucking crazy? All the evidence points to a resounding 'Yes'.

Fuck Hitler, someone should back in time and assassinate Ayn Rand. Or Leo Strauss. Or John Locke, or somebody.

Oh they are crazy all right. And to stick to their "principles" they propose to fuck me and a whole lot of other people over in terms of the value of our retirement funds and savings just to prove a point. I got in trouble for displaying my anger at these assholes before-but make no mistake about it, for Republicans-catastrophe is a feature not a bug.

You'd think that those who make more would be willing to give up more (or at least as much as a percentage) than the rest because of their good fortune. Oh wait, I forgot the whole "all mine" thing that the U.S. is famous for.

Crater? You ain't seen nothing yet.

Not in the US. We have a whole subset here who believe that if you desire to collect benefits you have paid into your whole life-then you are a "moocher". It's one reason so many lies have traction with the fat and stupid.

Hang on, I'm looking up "Protestant work ethic" and "Calvinism" in the Wikipaedia...
