  •  Thank you for this outstanding work Meteor Blades. (18+ / 0-)

    This may be the best work I've seen you do yet.  Such high level overviews of such a broad array  complicated environmental, economic, and political crisis can be difficult to follow and absorb.   And to keep focused.  

    Your most excellent edited keep it flowing.

    But, it's overwhelming and depressing to see the Koch brothers funding so many well organized assaults on the common good.

    Progressives and all other just good old fashion Americans who beleive in individual rights and the common good of all citizens are going to have to draw a line-in-the-sand, and band together with other groups such as those drawing a line in the sand on Social Security and Medicare cuts.

    In a moment of levity, I wrote a scathing counter-attack plan and said in the spirit of Mr T from the A team, "I pity the poor fool who would try balance a budget disequilibrated by tax cuts for the rich, and an near doubling of defense spending, by placing it all on cuts to social programs for the poor, and needy."

    And, let's cut the Republican crap.  Much of these are cuts to critical infrastructure investment, not "welfare" for the poor.

    If we do not invest in strong regulatory body to maintain the integretity of our financial and other critical systems our capacity to remain internationally competitive erodes.

    Koch may not care, and be happy to milk the US economy as a cash cow till it's gone, while they put their new investment in their rising stars China and India.   But this will not do for Americans.

    Here we see a major fault line where the best interest of Americans is clearly at odds with the best interest of these robber barron Koch brothers.

    We need to rise to oppose these outrageous assualts against the common good of all Americans.
