Dare we think this is finally the change?

“In 2009, President Obama told a group of 13 bankers "my administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks." Now the pitchforks are being tuned. It hasn't escaped notice of the 99% that while 1,000 top officers were jailed after the Savings and Loan debacle, not a single bankers has been jailed for their role in collapsing the global economy. The only firm really punished in the entire affair was Lehman Brothers, allowed to fail by Bush's Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson. When Obama took over, he failed to crack down on Wall Street, he failed to even tag the Banksters as the culprits for the global economic meltdown. Rather he praised Goldman Sach's LLoyd Blankfein and JP Morgan Chase's Jamie Dimon as friends and "savvy businessmen." Into the void, stepped the GOP who made huge gains at the federal and state level in 2010. Never shy, the GOP stepped right up to name the culprits -- us. Now in states like Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, teachers, firefighters, nurses and other public workers are fighting for their lives -- in utter disbelief that they are being blamed as the cause of the economic downturn. The poor, the elderly and working families are being asked to pay more to close state budget shortfalls, while radical governors shell out billions in tax breaks. The young people in Zuccotti are standing up to say enough is enough.” (Click here for the whole story)

seems more likely that in about three generations we'll all be trembling, hunched over, lobotomized human fractions slaving mindlessly away in Stuff Central, just waiting for the mercy of the purple gas...
It was purple, right?

I think it was purple. My memory never the same after...

Described it perfectly. I remain amazed and completely disheartened that people want to believe these lies.
I read what the American right says and I nearly puke at the twisted bizarre logic. They sound like robots with fried circuit boards.
The lie changes almost daily. It bobs and weaves and sounds ever more mindless. Yet people still believe it.

I've finally come to the conclusion that the Tea Party is comprised of humans captured and brain damaged by aliens attempting to understand human reasoning. That seems like the only explanation of why they cannot see through the shabby web of lies presented to them daily.
