  •  Death by a thousand cuts. (0+ / 0-)

    That's always been the core of the fear agenda.  Threats of deprivation are an effective strategy, if you're after submission, because like predictions of disaster, if they're wrong and turn out not as bad, the victims feel relief and gratitude.
    Everything's relative.

    What we need to understand is that when you're confronted by a bully, you want him to fail.  On the other hand, those who co-operate with a bully or try to mollify his intent, come off looking complicit.  If they're competent, then the prospect is worse.  
    What we need to tell the GOP is "No, you can't"  We're going to have to teach the party of 'no' what 'no' really means.  It's not a matter of doing nothing; it's a matter of not doing the country wrong.

    W done us wrong.

    The conservative mind relies mainly on what is plain to see.
