Sorry, teddy boy. You've proven there's nothing between you and the list of ignorant fools you couldn't name but who you admire so much for their lack of intelligence, ignorance of economics and devotion to cutting taxes on the wealthy, preventing social equality, attacking women and preventing reasonable gun control.
Keep posting your Southern crap so everyone can plainly see you and your pals for what you/they are. Thanks and keep it up.
And thank you, joe, for your typically information- and content-free lib prog ad homs and tax-and-spend claptrap.

More partisan bullshit from joe the reading-impaired lib prog idealogue.

Stockman's critique rips the bejeezis out of WASHINGTON, joe - Washington - you, know the place you and your lib prog statist heroes want to grow and surrender even more of our money and freedoms to. BOTH parties get an equal lambasting for selling out to Wall Street crooks and con artists - and he's dead right.

You might try actually reading his book before you show yourself an idiot troll by posting partisan claptrap about it. Lemme help you out:

"The Great Deformation is a searing look at Washington’s craven response to the recent myriad of financial crises and fiscal cliffs. It counters conventional wisdom with an eighty-year revisionist history of how the American state—especially the Federal Reserve—has fallen prey to the politics of crony capitalism and the ideologies of fiscal stimulus, monetary central planning, and financial bailouts. These forces have left the public sector teetering on the edge of political dysfunction and fiscal collapse and have caused America’s private enterprise foundation to morph into a speculative casino that swindles the masses and enriches the few."

"Defying right- and left-wing boxes, David Stockman provides a catalogue of corrupters and defenders of sound money, fiscal rectitude, and free markets. The former includes Franklin Roosevelt, who fathered crony capitalism; Richard Nixon, who destroyed national financial discipline and the Bretton Woods gold-backed dollar; Fed chairmen Greenspan and Bernanke, who fostered our present scourge of bubble finance and addiction to debt and speculation; George W. Bush, who repudiated fiscal rectitude and ballooned the warfare state via senseless wars; and Barack Obama, who revived failed Keynesian “borrow and spend” policies that have driven the national debt to perilous heights. By contrast, the book also traces a parade of statesmen who championed balanced budgets and financial market discipline including Carter Glass, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, Bill Simon, Paul Volcker, Bill Clinton, and Sheila Bair."

"Stockman’s analysis skewers Keynesian spenders and GOP tax-cutters alike, showing how they converged to bloat the welfare state, perpetuate the military-industrial complex, and deplete the revenue base—even as the Fed’s massive money printing allowed politicians to enjoy “deficits without tears.” But these policies have also fueled new financial bubbles and favored Wall Street with cheap money and rigged stock and bond markets, while crushing Main Street savers and punishing family budgets with soaring food and energy costs. The Great Deformation explains how we got here and why these warped, crony capitalist policies are an epochal threat to free market prosperity and American political democracy."

joe, go blue forever, et al... you do realize that partisan nonsense is the equivalent of an adult claiming that pro wrestling is real, right?

Oh, you don't? You've fallen for politicians and their lies? Ooops, sorry to be the one to break to you... but you're a dupe and you've been had.

If you are a Democrat or a Republican... You need to wake up and start thinking for yourself. BOTH of those parties are WORKING to destroy YOU.

And they probably will destroy YOU and your country... because YOU enable TYRANNY.

Wake up!!!!

It's only paranoia, joe, if they actually aren't spending, borrowing, and printing the nation into irretrievable and permanent fiscal collapse.

It is also clear that what you are so pleased with yourself to refer to as "education" is in fact lib prog collective propaganda and programming, and reactionary suppression of any dangerous (to the Collective) individual critical thinking and empirical reality-testing. By this measure, you are clearly one HIGHLY educated puppydog.

In short, you are a hopeless case.

Others with unimpaired critical thinking skills will yet turn this current swerve to the unsustainable left around in time.

Ah yes, and thus we hear clearly the early rantings of the hopelessly arrogant fascistic mindset giving forth from the pureness of your proudly uneducated but nonetheless "unimpaired critical thinking skills".

If we all hold real still we can almost hear the marching boots pounding in the background.

Better yet...

“It freaks me out,” Limbaugh said.“I have to tell ya, it freaks me out that Vladimir Putin is saying things that I agree with. The Russian president has opposed the adoption of Russian orphans by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender foreign couples, and has instructed the government and supreme court there to prepare changes to existing law by July 1.”

Oh them good 'ole goobers (GOP) and their freedom loving:

Republican North Carolina state legislators have proposed allowing an official state religion in a measure that would declare the state exempt from the Constitution and court rulings.

The bill, filed Monday by two GOP lawmakers from Rowan County and backed by nine other Republicans, says each state "is sovereign" and courts cannot block a state "from making laws respecting an establishment of religion." The legislation was filed in response to a lawsuit to stop county commissioners in Rowan County from opening meetings with a Christian prayer, wral.com reported.

Those good 'ole goobers are at it agin:

"It’s ultimately about changing the culture of the entire country; it inevitably will lead to teaching our public school kids that gay marriage is a perfectly fine alternative and no different than traditional marriage.
There is also a very slippery slope leading to other alternative relationships and the unconstitutionality of any law based on morality. Think about polygamy, bestiality, and perhaps even murder."

Virginia Gov. Candidate Cuccinelli Defending Law That Forbids Oral Sex

Last month, three judges on the US Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit deemed a Virginia anti-sodomy law unconstitutional...

...Virginia attorney general and Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli is asking the full 4th Circuit to reconsider the case. Cuccinelli wants the court to revive the prohibition on consensual anal and oral sex, for both gay and straight people.(The case at hand involves consensual, heterosexual oral sex.)
