Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The GOP Wants You To Be Stupid

Rick Santorum, in a really Romney-worthy pander, wants you to know that Obama has a fiendish plan to ruin America:  Help people go to college.

Here it is and how the Teatards are nodding their empty heads in agreement.  Of course, Santorum as a Senator had a plan to send more of his constituents to college, too, but that was 2006 before Obama lead us down the road to serfdom.

The news media gets the vapors when a group like OWS notes that we have a "class" problem in America.  But at the same time, the media have trouble pointing out things like the difficulty of A) affording college and B) succeeding in life without a college education.  Hey guys, THAT'S a class problem.

And I am also sick of the fact that we have to dictate national policy because of the grievances of a bunch of angry late middle aged Boomers who are pissed that back in the '60s and '70s their cohort was getting laid while they had to get married because either Peggy Sue got preggers or it was the best way to stay out of Vietnam.

I am so sick of the psychodramas of the '60s playing out fifty years later.
