"More broadly, the focus on reducing deficits, particularly during a very sluggish economic recovery, is the wrong one. In fact, there is very good reason to believe that, for now, we should be running higher deficits, devoting more money to infrastructure, to job creation and to helping struggling Americans."
Paul Krugman would be so proud.
No, I am not a tea party member. The tea party is a sham as evidenced by the group's overwhelming support for Romney. The tea party was a label put on UNORGANIZED individuals by the media. These people simply want to break with our corporate fascist system. Sensing the opportunity to promote their own agenda, the republicans stepped in and used the grass-roots movement to reign in the threat of individuals standing up against institutionalized corruption and tyrranny. The created ORGANIZED tea party groups to defend the status quo. They effectively marginalized and silenced those who demand real change. Now the media and democrats have yet another scapegoat to ensure the illusion continues. Republicans of course are happy to use the group for background scenery at their political rallies.
People who attack the tea party do not bother me. Hal has attacked the organized tea party which is warranted, but who he really hates are those who stand up against government and corporate corruption and greed. Hal wants government controlling and interfering in every aspect of people's lives. He doesn't see it as interferance because he's a narcissist and thinks he knows what is best for the world. So do most of the people in government. This is so evident in everything he writes. He's a propagandist to the Nth degree.
I identify with the unorganized grass roots movement to end financial tyrranny perpetuated by the central banks and Too Big To Fail banks that they prop up. We want to bring back constitutional representative government where health insurance companies could never write legislation mandating that citizens purchase their products or face criminal penalties. Hal openly despises what I believe because he and his like-minded goons running the show right now know if this ever takes hold, they are done. Hal's entire identity hangs in the balance.
Once you wake up and realize the scope of the mess this country is in, you too would be pissed. It is probably a waste of my time to sit here and type this. People don't care what is going on, as long as they keep getting their government cheese. Sooner or later it will stop, much the same way it has stopped in Greece. Ninety percent of the people who read this probably don't know what I mean by "it" has stopped in Greece. People who are of Hal’s ilk have their heads in the sand over this issue, but most, if you ask them what is going on in Greece (or Spain, Italy, Portugal, Ireland) would have no idea.
I’m sure Hal makes his masters in government very happy with his willful obedience to their bidding. Keep the masses blinded with partisanship and ideology based on lies and fear while people behind the scenes continue to run us, the 99%, into the ground.
Hal, seriously now, time to hang it up. Most people see through this for the bullshit that it is. Right vs. left, republican vs. democrat, it's all smoke and mirrors. They are all bought and sold by the same people, you know, the Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Central Bankers, Corporate Bankers like Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, etc. You are a pawn in the game, Hal. You serve a useful purpose to them as a distraction. You keep people believing there is a difference between them. One side blames the other for wars and tax breaks for the rich while the other slams back with accusations of high taxes and handouts to everyone in sight. Fact is they are one in the same. There are plenty of people who still go along with whatever some asshole in the media tells them is the truth, but more and more are looking into finding the truth for themselves. Got some real news for you Hal, your world is about to come crashing down before your very eyes. I'm willing to bet you will cling to your ideological illusion like a tick on a dog's dick rather than see the light when the time comes. I could care less, to each his own, but you've always annoyed me with your worthless drivel and for some reason, I feel the need to tell you. I guess it's because I associate you with part of the reason people are so screwed up in this day and age. You're mindset is venomous and distorted. I hope that you reconsider your beliefs and do something with your talent to actually benefit humanity, not continue to throw fuel on the fire.
Crowther, where do I begin? Your name calling, snubs, sarcasm, vilification, and outright ignominy of anything and anyone not part of the progressive democrat cabal really illuminates your limited intelligence of all matters across the socioeconomic spectrum. You will likely never realize that the great social division game you play is an illusion of your conditioning over the past 70+ years of your existence. You do a lot of complaining and blaming, but you have nothing to offer as far as solutions. Why don't you do something useful with your remaining days instead of feeding into the illusion of right vs left. Get a hobby or something. You know Hal, times are changing. People are finally beginnig to realize that this devisive nonsense is nothing more than a distraction to keep them dumbed down. They are waking up and questioning what it is the government does and how it affects their lives. They are putting ideology aside and looking at the situation for what it is, not through the context of progressivism or right-wing dogmas. These are the people of the true tea-party movement, not the hyper-religious country bumpkins with a 3rd grade education that you make them out to be. Hal, at this point in your life, you will never understand what I'm talking about and that is OK. What matters is more and more people disagree with you. They disagree with the other side also. They are people who have managed to balance common sense, logic, and resoning with emotion. What's funny about progressives is that they claim to own the intellectual argument, yet they have the emotional maturity of a toddler. Just read Hal's articles if you don't believe me.
Wow. Jonathan is another progressive big-government cheerleader. This article is one of the most uninformed and misguided pieces of democrat propaganda I've read in a long time. Go ahead and keep pissing away tax payer dollars. One day soon the banks are going to want their money back and your government isn't going to be able to borrow it from them to pay them back. Your beloved social programs WILL end, whether you like it or not. Your politicians are beholden to the people who finance their campaigns, not you. You are just the dumbasses who believe their shit and continue to put them in office. Your boy Obama is Bush x10. Wake up idiots.
I feel there is some truth to what Hal writes here. Once I get past his superiority complex and bloviating and consider what he is saying, I agree with about 60% of his opinions. I would hope that Hal's America bashing is directed towards our government and not the citizens. The collective conscious of America is not represented in the actions of the government. Hal has been a shameless supporter of Obama and his merry band of loyal drones, turning a blind eye to the reality that Obama and Bush are exactly the same, that this illusion of right vs. left, liberal vs. conservative, is a game to keep people distracted from the fact that they are indentured servants to the government. Maybe Hal will eventually come around to admit this. Until then, I find reading his articles slightly more annoying that sitting next to a family with out of control children at a restaurant. And talking about reaping what is sown in the middle east, until the Palestinians learn to love their children more than they hate the Jews, they will continue to reap what they sow. Passing out candy and celebrating in the streets over the murder of an Israeli family is not the way to bring about good karma. That being said, I agree that the American government has stirred up a lot of trouble in the middle east. This government, now firmly under the leadership of Barack Obama has done nothing, I repeat, nothing, except expand upon what Bush did. They days of blaming Bush are over. What good has Obama done? What he needs to do is pull the military out of the middle east, end all foreign aid, and let the damn place either implode or figure out how to live like civilized human beings. His corporate masters, same same ones that owned Bush, will not let him do that, so I can only Blame Obama so much. But he could at least grow a pair and take them on. So we'll see how this all turns out. And we'll also see if the Hal Crowther's of the world are ready to finally admit that government, whether in the hands of republicans or democrats, fails the people at all levels. Hal will probably go to his grave with a burning American flag in one hand and a framed picture of Obama in the other, never to realize that what he looked up to and what he looked down upon were both one and the same.
Beware the bearers of false gifts and thier broken promises. Much pain but still time. Believe. There is good out there. We oppose deception. Conduit closing.
