    Politics-as-Sport precludes a deeper discussion of the issues, which may be the main reason why the MSM has occupied this position so strongly. The big corporate bosses don't want a serious discussion of any issues. They want a misinformed, polarized population reacting in knee-jerk ways.

    •   In making us all Reagan-like puppets (0+ / 0-)

      they and Karl having been having this fantasy wet dream of marching their minions across downtrodden.

        I'm going to say this one time ( I hope ), But if we really live in the "greatest country in the world", why are we not working to make our Capitalist gov. stop spending money and start making  money ? We should be able to make enough national money a year to pay our Seniors the most money and highest signs of respect, including roofs over their heads better than any other country in the world.

       Just before Ronnie and his thugs started in on their attack on the so-called "Welfare Cadillac" the people were barely beginning to see checks they could actually live on and our Seniors were beginning rescued from poverty. Johnson knew what he wanted done and ever since the other side has plotted and planned to turn us into a third world country.

       It is time for Pres. Obama to start calling in some notes owed the US until we have been paid-off, to put the People to work at a living wage rebuilding our Bridges and Roads, ever the High-Speed Rail to Major Cities and eventually from LA to NY.

       With the price of money being almost free the Treasury and Congress is foolish not to be taking advantage of it at this time.
