But history proves you wrong as does simple logic and reality on the ground. Now Cal says that somehow thirty years of declining wages, recession/depression, and increasing rates of homelessness and suicidal overdoses is somehow a success. Wrong. Raygun cut the budgets and the taxes, and down the economy went in the first of six plus collapses just like 2008 and in Brownback’s kansas (“I’ll git you my pretty, and yer little dog too”), but not as bad. Cal being from the party of no and elite funded, will never go against his paymasters, because then he would lose his job, his funding, and maybe even his life. Hey like Serena Shim when she exposed the Turkey-NATO-ISIS connection. Everyone wanted a piece of the spoils from that stupid war that time so they’d let the mass shooting happen and then off to Africa for their chunk of the action. And Cal still believes that the russians took down MH-17; this even though we have on-the-ground eyewitnesses to the Ukrainians shooting it down on purpose in order to then justify an invasion-another really stupid rightwing move in a nuclear possible situation. Reality more complicated than he can understand is not allowed to impinge upon his enforced delusion and those of his bosses at the tribune and the times-remember when they bought them off and fired/eliminated the investigative journalists that time?
When it comes to education, Cal is once again dead wrong; no actual research done on the issue whatsoever or he would have run into the thousands of teachers just saying no to education privatization and how it actually has failed to deliver once again. Cal does not do the actual research or access seasoned education professionals, you know, the kind that actually have experience with teaching children in actual schools. The poor guy is forced back into cheerleading that which has failed for the last 30-40 years to deliver on the promises that matter to me, not the ones Trump makes up and then says he delivers on. Because you see, if all you deliver on in your version of success is more bodies and no jobs or actual substantive services, your “success” is actually one more failure to deliver to the rest of us. Yessirree bob, the OD/suicide rate is increasing. . . more money for Cal and his republican friends fronting for the pill mills. Another republican success story. . . No, I am not partisan, I am humane.
I’m glad you got yours Cal, but unfortunately my measure of success actually includes people that don’t just live inside the beltway with the bandits there. When assessed from that perspective, your policy has been and will continue to be an abject failure; since when is leaving behind 2/5ths of the population a success? Since the republicans started just lying for dollars 30-40 years ago. Lets see, how many war deaths and crimes has it been? Tons as in millions, and then to misrepresent and invoke the peacemaker MLK jr. as some kind of made over war-mongering capitalist re-enslaver has been the wet dream of every republican liar since the time when that republican doctor suffocated King in that hospital after the republican cops shot him dead. See Cal, if ma don’t have any money to buy the children presents cuz the grinch didn’t come through on what he promised, then mom can’t spend money at the store. Then the store goes bankrupt and the shopping malls lose customers, business, and collapse; why just like they’re doing now. And now, he and his friends just do the same ole’ pipeline crap and claim 42,000 jobs created; this even though like our tax cut, the jobs are temporary while the markets are still collapsing as the clean energy investments made under Obama continue to take off with the rest of the world; the largest job creating boom never publicized because, oh the horror, it was done under the leadership of a black man who actually cared sometimes.
But don’t worry. Cal and his friends changed the indicators for determining economic “viability” under Raygun. So even if if half the people of the US are forced to live and slowly die in abject poverty due to the tax/budget cuts, somehow or another, Cal and his friends will find some way to call dogpiss lemonade and continue to drink the koolaid, that is until someone tells them quietly that actually that lemonade is dogpiss, dumbass and pays him off to say so in case his bosses fire him for being too honest and responsible.
Ah, the difference between a journalist and a bent over mouthpiece for the corporados. The guy who exposed the main motivation for the creation of greater (or lesser) israel was fired for showing that they were interested in stealing the natural gas off the gazan coastline; this even though we were supposed to stop burning the stuff if we want to last until 2100. And Serena Shim laid it all on the line to expose the NATO-Turkey-ISIS connection and was murdered for the privilege. But ole’ Cal knows better than to hang ten like that; he likes the money and the company. . . . . And don’t worry, Cal’s friends in central america were happy to just keep on playing sitcoms oblivious, while some of the worst fascist coups were going on in those nations; the worlds on fire, dead bodies piling up that time, and Cal and his friends can’t even seem to find a firehose that doesn’t have holes in it and a pump truck that works. Let it burn; they said when they wanted to privatize fire services; wait, won’t sparks from the neighbors fire start our house too? Nope, and global warming is not real and that forest isn’t tinder dry either. Yuppers, this tax cut is great for us and who cares if we’re cutting the foundations out from under ourselves; we got ours, bye. . . . The point here is we’ve done this crap before and it didn’t work that time either. The band played persistently on though even as the titanic was going under that time too-talk about irritating, huh. This time though, maybe he and his friends will be able to miss the iceberg, huh. Doubt it. . . they’re in a heavy brain fog and they’re going too fast. . . . Life jackets anyone? Too expensive. . . . better bring your own. . . Temp workers in steerage. . . . !!
