    diary, but I think it's still pertinent:

    *  Y'know, I totally agree w/this:

       

    How about manning up here, Mr. President and use your mandate to bring this country together to stop us from becoming Greece."
    He hit the nail right on its head:  Raise the top tax rate to what it was under Eisenhower.  And spend a whole lot of the resulting income on infrastructure repair/replacement.

    Greece's major problem is that it is being forced into an austerity cycle of death.

    So, yeah.  Tax the rick, and tax corporations, and spend the money to keep sewage from overflowing in the streets every time there's a downpour, and to replace water mains that break every year or so, and replace bridges that collapse when a train goes over them.

    Man up, Mr. President: and revile all those GOPers who hate you, and tell the universe what idiots those haters really are, and how much they loathe the voters who use those roads and bridges and sewage systems and water mains.

    Talk truth to the GOP.  They will call it hell.  h/t Truman.

    To make the argument that the media has a left- or right-wing, or a liberal or a conservative bias, is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they use too much oil in their hummus. Al Franken
