    Was there an outcry to O & C paper since it (seems to me) was based on very false premises?  Just curious.

    I hope history is making a come back because I am so sick of the stupid.  Ask anyone who lived through the Depression, there is no doubt in their minds that the New Deal worked and they really loved FDR.

    The reforms and new policies geared to the poor and middle class so upset the rich ruling class that they tried to remove FDR through a military coup.  Chimpy's grandfather was involved.  But typical of this country unlike a good old military dictatorship, no one was killed or imprisoned.  In fact, it is never mentioned, wouldn't be nice.  Let's forget and move on.  Sound familiar?

      The stupid have won. It's all but over.

      We said we want change, and they gave us a handful.

        Let me hang on to my fantasy a little longer please.

        I am a little surprised and dismayed that two professors from a rather prestigious university could publish such dreck without repercussions. But then I graduated from U of Michigan and wouldn't expect this from academics.  I maybe a tad naive.

          Straw dogs and red herring have supplanted real criticism.

          Ideology is what makes people defend bad ideas even in the face of contrary evidence.
