  •  Well said. (7+ / 0-)

    In another diary about the choice of Wisconsin as a battleground state, a commenter, HouseinMotion, I believe, just used the term post-truth to describe that particular battle front, and it occured to me what a perfect descriptive it is for the years from 2000 onward in the nation. Simple, accurate.

    Like all aspects of the human condition, the popcorn imagery also has its troubling realities.

    Chief neoconservative/fundamentalist allied belief: All things are possible if only you lie.

    •  U3 of >8% and U6 in mid-teens are new normal (5+ / 0-)

      Wanting to raise the top marginal rate to 38% (it was 50% during most of Reagan's presidency) is "socialism."  2 failed wars in the region are not enough, "bomb bomb Iran" is now on deck.  Until he delivered a Convention speech that contained more lies than facts, Ryan was considered to be something of a policy wonk.

      This country has gone so far off the rails that it would take a decent cab ride to get back to the main line.  Popcorn can wait.

      Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?
