    Or should I say Reid and Baucus Democrats?

    Our job is to not do anything!  Eat your peas!

    Screw these people. No matter how much power you give the Democratic party, they don't enact even populist legislation, much less progressive legislation. And fixing problems? No sir!

    We have conclusively proven that Reaganomics is a failure--or rather, the most passionate adherents of Reaganomics have proven it's a failure, by driving Reaganomics to its extreme. That extremism has shown the terrible global effects of that economic philosophy, which threatens to destroy capitalism itself (the system the adherents of Reaganomics supposedly love).

    Doubling and tripling down on that philosophy, and the policies that emerge from it, is a doctrine of political failure. It admits that the state, the nation-state and the world are going down the tubes, and shrugs. It's as if Rome has already fallen--everywhere--and all that's left to do is loot. So they crank up the Reaganomics so that they can speed up the looting everywhere, leaving everything to collapse except the richest of the rich, who will, one supposes, retreat to their guarded compounds with the resources of the world.  Of course, the catch is that climate collapse is going to kill off the rich along with everybody else, just more slowly. But they seem to be OK with the fact that their kids or grandkids are going to live through a nightmare and probably die of it as long as they get to loot the world to breaking point and retreat to their compounds in the short term.

    if necessary for years; if necessary, alone
