More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    The show was on Friday in Austin. Pretty good. Stockman used lots of GOP themes to come to the same conclusions as OWS.

      and they'd never produce outcomes favorable to the people. So if he as an individual lands on the right spot, ok I guess, but a real economy can't get there through US conservatism.

      I'll look around, the show may air here tonight some time.

        it seems to me to be a human design failure, not a matter of a political persuasion.

        this is biology gone awry in a system that calls for other types of responses: somehow attainment of power seems to shut down our survival instinct.

        this state of mind (or mindlessness) allows the pursuit of insanity, as far as i can tell.

        It certainly raised my level of outrage again that 3 years down, we have had no criminal investigations of the Wall Streeters who destroyed the economy, that the too big to fail banks, are now bigger than ever, etc. etc. etc.

        What happened to the sense of justice in this country?
        That at the very least shouldn't there be criminal investigations? We deserve at least that much.  Not just to hear the president say, "they did nothing illegal."

        For the S&L debacle we actually had people go to prison.
        Not Neil Bush - of course, but many others.

    this morning. He presented some reasonable views not the rabid dog rantings of some other conservatives.  I wasn't able to watch the entire show as I was on my way out to Sunday school.

      cameras back in Ronnie's and Stockman's day.
      Stockman got woodshedded for getting caught saying out loud what the GOP Teabagger candidates now scream from the rooftops and podiums at anyone who will listen.
      I find all this attention Stockman is getting as a sort of "moderate" i.e. not completely batshit crazy, really disconcerting. It was him and his that got the whole Reagan Revolution bullshit rolling and we are living the results of "Voodoo Economics".
      I really don't need to hear another fucking Rethug tell me about what they think about how it's all going down, even if he doesn't have crazy eyes and speak in dog-whistles.

    I thought Stockman laid it out pretty damn good and as near as I could tell he blamed both parties equally on the mess that was created. He basically said that both parties are in bed with the bankers and the big corporations. And that because of that , no regulations were in place or enforced to stop the casino like antics of bankers and mortgage holders . Also he said that was why the big guns that made the most out of the make believe market are not being held responsible and why they are operating right now with basically the same rules as before. Basically he said nothing will change regarding any of this until or unless we can get the money out of Congress, admitting how hard that will  be but asserting that it was an absolute necessity to stop another big bust, probably worse than the  present one. He said that the banks that were "too big  to fail" are even bigger now than then. He said that the way things stand now there is no doubt that a second round awaits us some time down the road. I think he is right.

    My parents were at a Farm Movement rally in Ames, Iowa back in early 1985. Some people there hung a paper-mache effigy of Stockman....

    I'm spending the winter watching Northern Exposure.

    Last night I watched an episode where the 72 year old shopkeeper Ruth Ann was talking about her sons.

    One is a poet/writer or teacher I think. The other (and she sighed when she said this) "was a big disappointment".

    Turns out he was an investment banker. And this show was in 1991!

    Tracy B Ann - technically that is my signature.
