  •  Cut to chase: "Why Republicans Roool". (3+ / 0-)

    The conservative Texas troglodytes working so hard to impose their 'parallel universe' view of American history on children should just cut to the chase and say what they really mean:

    Democrats are treasonous cowards, Republicans are simply the greatest thing Evah, and Ronald Reagan should be elevated to sainthood. Oh, and dropping thermonuclear bombs on every nation full of brown people should be a no-brainer.

    •  They are trying to canonize Bush Junior as well (2+ / 0-)

      I think that's part of what's behind teaching about social security "alternatives".  No doubt they will dump crap in the history saying how brave Bush Junior was to push for social security privatization (meaning gutting social security).

      I'm trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You're the one that has to walk through it.

        W. Bush uses the political "capital" he "won" in the 2004 "election" and gets his way to privatize Social Security in 2005/2006.  Retirees, boomers and misguided xers pile their Social Security assets into the market, dreaming of those 40-50% returns promised by RoveNCo.  

        C R A S H ! ! ! 2007.  Thank you all, you are now wiped out.  Please exit, from your nursing home, family home, retirement villa, immediately.  Please take all your lazy ass children currently living at home due to the lack of employment with you.

        Welcome to, The Twilight Zone, of America.

          as in mortgage backed securities.  Rated AAA but really AAA JUNK!  Wall street + GOP hacks never gives up trying to fleece the people of all their money.

        •  Might almost have been worth it. (0+ / 0-)

          The Republican brand would have been so utterly and permanently destroyed, the next election cycles would be total Democratic landslides. Pitchforks and torches for real.

          And if so many Democrats weren't such corporate whores, this could have led to a new New Deal.
