4. IMAGINE HOW THE PRESIDENT FEELS??
We are supposed to be a nation of educated peoples. The reason the third worlds are in so much trouble, actually the people live in the deprivation, is that the majority of the population is illiterate and has to depend on word of mouth or the tyranny of a single rules, to keep themselves alive. When you are dealing with a unique group of people who deny facts, undermine science and live in a difference universe/bubble you cannot solve problems easily. Krugman is right, there are certain levels of humanity that we as a nation must strive toward, or we will be in the universe of third world thinking. Nothing is going to get done, when your partner stands on the sideline, waiting, no doing everything they can do to make you fail and care not the price that is paid for that downfall. The republicans are incredibly inhumane and disconnected from the world. And we the people are paying a heavy price for that disconnect.

6. I don't know how the president feels...
I see who he appointed as advisors in many cases and it's really difficult to think he gives a damn about the average person.

I mean seriously, Jefferey Immelt as jobs czar? :shrug:

The fact that Krugman is on the outside pissing in instead of the inside pissing out certainly says something to me.

15. Yeah
And what pissed me off most was the stupid "Team of Rivals" thing. The idea that President Obama actually took people from utterly diverse backgrounds and opinions on the issues to generate his advisors and cabinet, when most of the people he took in were either Clintoids, old DLC hacks, or both.

7. If only it were so easy to deal with The Powers That Be. That's their game - first they ignore you
. . . eventually, if you annoy them enough and start costing them real money or threaten their essential interests in some way, you have an "accident" or "medical emergency."

Or, your car blows up. Whatever works.

26. Lol! he's getting around these days!


I love the way he drives rightwingers over the edge. He was on a show with O'Reilly once and he nearly caused him to have a heart attack. He never gets upset but kept looking sideways at O'Reilly as if he was from another planet. All O'Reilly did was yell at him! It was so funny. He has that effect on them!
