I really feel sick about this James K. Galbraith
article in Salon.
Of course I knew Bush was extremely dangerous for our country and our well-being. But I wasn't expecting this.
Since these diaries scroll off so far, I'd like to see Kos review the article (if he has time) and get it on the front page.
My suggestion is for everyone to send the link to your local or state newspaper and ask them to reprint this article.
The country's got to wake up while we still have something left.
The gist of the article is that "no jobs" is a conscious strategy of the administration. They want us to be so destitute, so lacking in jobs that we're beholden to them entirely, not uppity, powerless. This is another variance of the riff of 'starving the beast,' get us so far in debt that no social programs are possible. But take away everyone's jobs so that we're entirely powerless???
We've got things going on in this country, and if we don't do something now, it's going to be too late.
