The cause of the reformation also passed by me on September 12th 2001. I was sure that this heinous act by religious fundamentalists would be the death knell here in America for Evangelical (forcing religion on others) Fundamentalist (literal truth of scripture) and an awareness that shooting doctors in the back is the same thing. I have never been so wrong about anything in my life! We doubled down on that crap and started a religious crusade in the middle East for Christ sake.
Hold it… I was equally wrong just 8 years later. After the bankers, Wall Street, insurance and credit ratings companies – at the beset and will of the Republican Party – caused the greatest recession in American history that the electorate would finally WAKE the F UP and we would see the end of the conservative hegemony of the Country Club Republicans. In fact, just the opposite happened. The same people who about destroyed this country are now the heroes and reaping in record votes, profits, bonuses, UNEARNED income and blaming it all on the weak, the poor, the children, the old and teachers for Christ sake.
I noticed last Friday night that the only place where it is even possible to bring up the issue of ADDING REVENUES rather than CUTTING ENTITLEMENTS is on HBO. Bill Maher’s non censored show where they can say F. Even mentioning raising taxes is the same as spouting obscenity on TV.
