57. what Wellstone effect?
Edited on Sat Aug-29-09 11:38 AM by newspeak
What I remember about Wellstone's funeral is how the corporate ass media went on and on about how some of those "liberal" observers were booing our great repukes. And, I mean on and on. The media did everything they could to downplay Wellstone. I love me some Paul Wellstone. He is the one Senator that I donated to every election and I am not even from his state. But, I knew that he actually cared for the American people and he listened and helped main street. When mine workers were concerned about *'s buddies in mining lowering safety standards, it is Wellstone who came to the rescue, because those politicians, I believe it was Pennsylvania, would not respond to those concerns.

And, St. Ronnie was made a saint after his death. Between books and a complicit media--they CREATED the perception of St. Ronnie. I mean, think about the state of the economy, Iran-Contra, BCCI-S&L debacle during St. Ronnie. In the book, "The Predators Ball," it shows how many corporations were gutted or raped under St. Ronnie--how many corporations went bankrupt (believe me, there was a lot) and how those greedy corrupt assholes used junkbonds to grab companies that were in the black and basically, strip them, leaving employees with no jobs. St. Ronnie is a myth created by the media and unregulated predatory capitalist thieves after his death.
