    Well, at least he explains Neoliberalism:

    He's is a smart guy, but he's not nearly as straightforward as his presentation. I would label Clinton and Biden (the early days) as enabling fools. They actually thought their opponents had a shred of decency. And obviously, they were wrong.

    NAFTA, the great sellout of the middle class? Yes, because that very same oligarchy decimated beyond recognition the 'spirit' of the agreement. It was never intended, never, as a transfer of labor mechanism, NO!, it was designed to be a transfer of oligarchic funds to those less fortunate for a dual purpose, to raise the hemispheric boat AND to alleviate the problem of mass illegal immigration. This was an elegant, even sublime attempt to make the world a better place even if in limited scope. Never happened.

    Obama protested every civil liberties bill that was presented to him by ... well, you know who.

    Obama's mandate: Universal Health Care. Obama's result: Something that ... well, you know who could point to as another example of leftist economic ignorance and inevitable failure. The fact that ... well, you know who threw roadblocks in his way that only the evil one himself could have conceived apparently is not relevant. Where did he not get blocked? In his efforts to provide free bj's to the oligarchy.

    I can only speak for myself but the reality is painfully obvious to me. I would advocate for chronic depression as a way to clear vision.

    And perhaps these two reads:

    Your more (like) a beast of babel, when it comes to making (any) real sense.

    You'll have to discuss that with my alter ego ... Aianawa ...

    One just has to do the research, psychic intuition helps tremendously as well ... truth is truth ... I think therefore I think, I think.

    I failed to give the proper approbation to my favorite sesquipedalian and dreamer.
