Good thing they bought off or own all the regulators.

Might be pitchfork and tar and feathers time again.

Oh, maybe I'll get droned for making comments like that.

Shit ! Why waste decent resources ?!! Why not just fkn 'stick' to using the pitchforks ?!!! + Consider :

"Over a decade during which the US economy was decimated by jobs offshoring, economists and other PR shills for offshoring corporations said that the US did not need the millions of lost manufacturing jobs and should be glad that the “dirty fingernail” jobs were gone.

"America, we were told, was moving upscale. Our new role in the world economy was to innovate and develop the new products that the dirty fingernail economies would produce. The money was in the innovation, they said, not in the simple task of production.

"If those who speak truth cannot be bought off or shut up, they are ignored or demonized. Almost everything Americans need to know is off limits in public discussion. Anyone who broaches the truth becomes an “anti-American,” a “terrorist sympathizer,” a “commie-socialist,” a “conspiracy theorist,” a “kook,” or some other name designed to scare Americans away from the message of truth.

"The corrupt corporations, the corrupt media, and the corrupt US government have insulated the country from truth. The result will be a massive crash. A country built on lies is like a house built on sand"

[Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and associate editor of the Wall Street Journal. He was columnist for Business Week, Scripps Howard News Service, and Creators Syndicate. He has had many university appointments. His internet columns have attracted a worldwide following. His latest book, 'The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism and Economic Dissolution of the West' - http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/ ]

So 'B' - get "droned" together, shall we ~} =======##~~'?~{;-)

u know... I don't believe most of them even know the "truth" ... or care... they just relay what they have been told to

I find it interesting that after a rather extensive decades-long effort to dumb down the entire population, these same people expect everyone to be designing smartphones, and creating apps for same.

Paul Craig Roberts....one of the economists who gave us "Reaganomics"....

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Wasn't he also one of the first to realise it (reaganomics) would fail?

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Maybe not, but he does have an interesting curriculum vitae

[-] 1 points by vaprosvyeh (-400) 1 year ago

He's a very interesting man, and highly intelligent as well. I just found it odd that shadz66 quoted and article written by Reagan's right hand economist.

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

It's all grist for the mill.

Oh, and it looks like our resident superhero MPD sufferer has his stinkle cape on again. LOL

Reclusionman, you rock. NOT. heheheheheh I can just see him sitting in the den with fifteen monitors and screaming around on a wheelchair.

Every forum needs a mascot. At least this one gets 4 or 5 for the price of one.

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Now that is funny. Thanks.

You made my day. It's all about the visuals, for me.

[-] 0 points by vaprosvyeh (-400) 1 year ago

LOL. Glad to hear it.

The only visuals I get of him are always disturbing.

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Yes, but I remember him before the "troubles" began.

And I've dealt with NPD cases before, so I know exactly how they see me. I don't have any feelings for them either, except for pity.

He was still defending his supply side Reaganomics policies in 2010-

[-] 2 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Okay. Thanks for the heads up.

Will read up on it.

I recall that one of the authors quickly saw the errors and jumped ship.

Don't forget the torches.

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Tar pitch wrapped in pure hemp cloth.

Gotcha. Though some spots from remote-controlled choppers look very cool too.

[-] 2 points by Shule (1696) 1 year ago

Err yeh, forgot about that (they didn't have drones back in mid-evil times.) Then maybe we need to bring along some shoulder fired surface to air missile launchers too....

[-] 3 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Let's not drop all the cards on the table.

Some perfume-soaked paper planes for starters.

We're trying to win people over, rather than bury them under.

[-] 2 points by Shule (1696) 1 year ago

Yes. Let us stay with the paper airplanes, and perfume.
