Not much journalism here. Mostly recitation. A news short article with a headline promising all right wing candidates’ economic plans, which it never delivers. Instead it descends into Perry’s voodoo economics and attempts to treat who-cares nonsensical issues as important and serious. An easily solved problem. One must understand an underlying salient fact: all Republican proposals benefit the rich. Period. Bring cookies and milk for something to do when reading this one.

My problem is twofold: First, I understand American media (media–plural) are controlled by the right wing and aren’t going to give much airtime to traitorous liberals. After all, General Electric and ComCast are hardly members of OWC. Secondly, I’m 75 years of age. This is my second depression. The first depression benefitted common Americans. This depression will destroy us all–including the Too Rich. who think they’re immune.
