Fred: I find consolation in history. In 594 B.C. the poor in Athens were getting similarly screwed. At a certain point, the debts were and/or will be repudiated.

Tyler

The rot is too far gone.

Fred

Matthew,

If one has a pension you're not poor, but soon will be. All in the name of our economic aristocracy.

Fred

I thought you got banned.

As Gore Vidal said: There is only one party in the United States, the Property Party ... and it has two right wings: Republican and Democrat. Republicans are a bit stupider, more rigid, more doctrinaire in their laissez-faire capitalism than the Democrats, who are cuter, prettier, a bit more corrupt—until recently ... and more willing than the Republicans to make small adjustments when the poor, the black, the anti-imperialists get out of hand. But, essentially, there is no difference between the two parties

Tyler

What a pathetic dodge. Of course the history of previous administrations is my history in this country

Tyler

Its best to know something of the occupying powers controlling this nation.

Tyler

Wait until all those pensions get nationalized for our own good!

Dr. K

I thought you died.

Highlander,
Thanks. That one made me laugh out loud. I am tired of both the Clinton family and the Bush family.

Charles Dekle

Fred,
This just in: http://www.govexec.com/oversight/2014/04/budget-story/81676/
He will come after the military retirements next, IMHO.

Col Lang,
It would seem that Christie lost all of the bravado that he showed at public forums when he cowed the teacher's union representatives. Perhaps he should have been a better student of The Bard:

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
Macbeth Act 5, scene 5

Me thinks that his time of strutting and fretting is in the past.
Regards,

Fred

Thats why there's such an effort to outlaw gun ownership.

Fred

They will be after everyone's money - except the billionaires.

Tyler

Funny, I was about to say the same thing about you.

Tyler

One of many reasons why there is such an effort.

No self-respecting, well-informed American would vote for any of these worms who pledge allegiance to Israel or any other foreign entity. Unfortunately, too many people lack either one or both of these requirements for good citizenry, no becomes a presidential candidate without first being vetted by the Israeli Firsters.

Rand with a Democratic Congress is our best bet. He could reign in our foreign policy while Congress blocked his Austrian economic impulses.

Charles Dekle

Too true.

Dr. K

Your youthfulness is apparent. You grew up in the Reagan Gulag. Your knowledge of anything is highly questionable

Dr K
Please define Reagan Gulag . And be careful with our friend Tyler , in your judgements about him . Tyler is quite knowledgeable about many things- but like you I often disagree with him . But please what is the Reagan Gulag - exactly ..

Alba Etie

Tyler
Though we vehemently disagree about whether my best friends Jenny & May could be wed as 'two girls " - we do find fundamental agreement on all of our absolute 2nd amendment rights .

Alba Etie

Makes me miss President Reagan & House Speaker O'Neil.

Fred
And SCOTUS with its ruling yesterday demolished & destroyed any restraint on the Oligarchs ability to buy our elections. No limits to the amount of money that can be donated .
