Ruled By The Right
"The Big Government Blowhards. The talk-radio jocks are not in the business of promoting conservative governance. They are in the business of building an audience by stroking the pleasure centers of their listeners.
They mostly give pseudo Crispin’s Day speeches to battalions of the like-minded from the safety of the conservative ghetto. To keep audience share, they need to portray politics as a cataclysmic, Manichaean struggle. A series of compromises that steadily advance conservative aims would muddy their story lines and be death to their ratings." Well said, David.
SOOO... If we are not nuts, why don't we harass our elected reps in Congress to get a grip on reality and what the country really needs - and wants - and ignore the ignoramuses? Close those tax loopholes; collect those avoided taxes; kill the Bushtaxcutsfortherich (a new dirty word)!
Then, make the cuts needed on wasteful, ineffectual, outdated and stupid programs. And spend some of the saved/earned money on creating good jobs.
I feel better now.
