America Wants Stupid People

Posted by GregB on March 30, 2017 at 2:23 PM

Once again the Republicans want to cut out funding for education. Every Republican administration of the past 40 years takes this tactic, complaining that we're spending far too much on making smart Americans, however you'll never see the GOP wanting to cut funding for the military industrial complex.

What does that tell you about the mindset of the GOP?

Deep Hurting! Deep Hurting!

Posted by GregB on March 28, 2017 at 7:22 PM

The Embrace of Damnation, or, The Faustian Cheeto

Posted by Stephen Daugherty on March 27, 2017 at 1:06 PM

We really need to take the phrase "at all costs" at face value, because as with all things, sometimes the benefit of an action, of a strategy, is outweighed in its value by what is lost to attain it. The Election of Donald Trump has become something like that. All kidding aside, Republicans have paid, and will continue to pay a price for defeating Hillary Clinton the way they did, not to mention having Trump be their winning nominee.

Deliver the Goods

Posted by Warren Porter on March 24, 2017 at 9:47 PM

In The Art of the Deal, Tony Schwartz ghostwrites on behalf of his client:

"You can't con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don't deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on ... I'd never understood how Jimmy Carter became president. The answer is that as poorly qualified as he was for the job, Jimmy Carter had the nerve, the guts, the balls, to ask for something extraordinary. That ability above all helped him get elected president. But, then, of course, the American people caught on pretty quickly that Carter couldn't do the job, and he lost in a landslide when he ran for reelection."
