      We are colleagues and I know him pretty well. I was surprised at the vitriol- what is pathetic is that he doesn't have two pennies to rub together and he works hard as an adjunct (and much underpaid) college professor.

      He rants about deceits and supports austerity without question.

      He is not a selfish person at heart, but he has been completely hoodwinked by the worst of the RWNM duckspeakers (Hannity, Drudge).

      I've seen this with family members as well. These are people with no sense of class solidarity or even class consciousness, with a shrinking safety net, who have left themselves be terrified and angry at the prospect of anyone "getting something for free" while they work like peasants.

      Divide and Conquer. Very, very sad.
