What the sane world is up against

George Zornick has a good post at thenation.com about the people who are bent upon bringing on national economic default. It, in essence, the same crowd responsible for this week’s abominable North Carolina legislative session.

He quotes the the Business Secretary in the coalition British government led by Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron as follows:   

“The irony of the situation at the moment, with markets opening tomorrow morning, is that the biggest threat to the world financial system comes from a few right-wing nutters in the American Congress rather than the eurozone.”

Right-wing nutters? We may have found a new catchphrase.

    As an independent, I find it very disconcerting that you and other progressives continuously label folks with differing opinions as nuts or radicals. I don’t label myself as anything, but I certainly see the movement to balance our budget and live within our means as a country not as a radical thing, but an attempt to not saddle our children with astronomical debts. Obviously, there are many ways to do this, but to continuously raise the debt limit, and run nothing but red ink for years is quite insane.

    This is how Rob, Chris and Greg make a living. They want the world to think they are for the poor, mentally ill, the down and out. They call people names, encourage me to take my medication, and they get away with it. You can not ask a question because they have all the knowledge. Never are both sides presented. Contributions to their organizations must be based on how mean-spirited they are to people who disagee with them. I am mentally ill because I disagee with them or point out their untruths. Again, if any of these buds had to work with the poor, they could not handle it. They can not handle a challenge to their thoughts.
