  •  I love that "neo-feudalism" (0+ / 0-)

    I'd thought I was the only one making that connection.  The neo-con policies that have been destroying the middle and working classes seemed to be leaving only room for: the absurdly wealthy; their accountants and retainers; their prisonkeepers, guards, and troops; and a vast undifferentiated mass of impoverished servants.  Feudalism, or your "neo-feudalism" is the way to describe it.

    Calling something "a laffer" should come to conflate with "a laugher" -- the overwhelming defeat of a vastly inferior opponent.  So "a laffer" would be the easy demolition of an obviously stupid idea.  E.g., "In last night's speech, Obama trounced Republican objections to the Estate Tax in a laffer."

    Apocalypse? I'd prefer Wax Lips.
