1. It sickens me.
I will never believe that Reinhart and Rogoff's faulty conclusions were not intentional. It stands to reason that the usual suspects will pretend that their conclusions are still valid, banking on the filtering of media content to bolster the ruse.

We do not hear much argument in the media against austerity. Imagine that. Of course we now know the message is strictly controlled and seldom in our best interests. Hey we have to pay down this debt before we embark on a new and improved unnecessary war. Gotta keep them nasty WMDs in check, you know.

Raising taxes is out of the question. As if this rapidly increasing wildly distorted wealth disparity is just business as usual. We must preserve supply side trickle down at all costs.

A grand bargain that includes cuts to medicare and social security will guarantee a Republican majority in both houses of congress after 2014. Because the President and the Democratic Party will get the entire blame for any cuts. Two birds, one stone.
