We have to spend out of this depression. Reducing taxes for the wealthy does nothing to influence demand which is the only way out. The national debt is huge (thanks to the GOP in my opinion) but the priority has got to be to get jobs and demand up again. The 2009 stimulus was too little and most economists said that then.
And then there is Glen Beck.
"We have been setting up re-education camps. We call them universities"
Glen Beck is a Nazi and/or a moron. The Nazi Brown Shirts of the 30's said the same kind of things about intelligencia. He is dangerous. The fact that people actually listen to him is just like the Germans following Hitler. I am serious. That is what it looks like to me. He is a mediocre radio jock who managed to hit a cord with a bunch of people. The fact that no one is willing to call him a Nazi is beginning to bug me. Well here it is. Glen Beck is a Nazi.
