    We have examples of Europe to show pulling money out of people's hands hurts the economy.

    We have the IMF sudden realization and British analysts, as they come onto their triple-recession, to tell us austerity is counter-productive.

    Are our political class and media unaware of the news, which we all can find or read in moments?

    Are they just stupid? On massive amounts of LSD, all day long?

    Or do they wish for, desire, the result? And why would they wish for a result that, in all normal politics, loses people's vote? Which is supposed to, according to the Conventional Wisdom, be what politician's are all about getting.

    President Obama keeps talking the neo-Lib talk about "make us competitive in the world marketplace." Conservatives, knowing their biggest expense against profit comes from labor, of course would be happiest with slave-labor but will settle for serfdom. For now.

    Both agree that wages should be driven down, and the way to do that is to make the US compete against slave-labor and a-touch-above-slave-labor.

    The more desperation in the air, the better for neo-Libs and Conservatives alike. The ordinary people? Shit, enough are so blinded you can get them to claim arithmetic doesn't apply, so a cut isn't a cut.

    Markos! Not only are the Gates Not Crashed, they've fallen on us. Actual Representatives are what we urgently need, because we have almost none.
