John Maynard Keynes was RIGHT

In the long run we are all dead
which I think should help most of the liberal haters accept the fact that Keynes was re-incarnated as Jim Morrison.

As usual tongodeon offers us the apparently modestly reasonable rant The Return of John Maynard Keynes, which of course obviously FAILS to point out the Jim Morrison Connection.

What would be at least interesting to hear from the Chicago Schoolers, were some deeply religious commitment as to why we were suppose to buy into the mythologies of a Monetarist Policies in a Global Economy, when one of the nations gets to play fast and loose about the Global Currency...

Granted, that way does run into a whole series of big UGLY SCARY BITS, not the least of which is one of the central cult Mytho's
Reagan has already proved that deficits do not matter.
Which offers up the Fuggly in the current events, that if this were REALLY TRUE, then of course the whines about any of the bail outs, is, well, just more of the same old "stabbing our troops in the back" that it had been under both Klinton and Dubya.

But if the whole give away tax cuts, well, never really solved the 'saving problem' in the actual real world. { I do not discount that in some slip stream world, where Reaganism is an actual conservative movement, and not merely one more Psuedo-Con-In-Drag-Cult, that the economics in that space, is, well, under a totally different Gravity Well.. } It should likewise not come as that strong a piece of work to step back and start looking at what may well have been the core DEFECT in Keynesianism.

The FUGGLY LEFT OVER of the sixties.... What if deficits DO MATTER! and matter even MORE in the nation with the Global Currency? Hence that fiscal fiasco of the Unfunded Vietnam Era weapons testing programme, REALLY was a bad thing, since it lead to the financial crisis that Nixon would 'fix' by allowing the Global Currency to sorta float... I say sorta float, since we end the seventies with it once again safely protected by being the currency used for buying BTU's, that was backed by the full faith and credit that we would NUKE any unbelieving god haters who failed to be our bestist-bestist friends.

Granted, that direction leads us into the somewhat unpleasant question set about why folks were soooooo hoping that the OneCurrencyToRuleThemAll was the great solution from Mordor!!! And yes boys and Non-Perkin, Greenspan FAILED to take the Ring Out of the Shire... So Get Over It!!!

OK, so we will also need to address the whole issue about privatizing militaries on the tax payers dime, rather than allowing the Majik of the free markets to do that on the mere profit motive....

Now do not get me wrong here boys and Chumps, but, uh, we may need to go and solve various issues that had not been available for testing. Keynes was writing from the context in which the UK was still the Major Global Currency, with the global backing of it's military and economic forces. While the USofA was still play acting that it did not really mean to be an Imperialist Power. Since, well, we were sorta thinking about giving the PI it's national sovereignty, which, well, was also assumed by the Territory of Hawai'i, to imply that it toooo would be allowed to return to it's own indigenous cultural heritage...

Clearly we may need to deal with whether or not Nuclear Stock Piles make a better basis for both Morality and Economics... Or... Heaven forbid, that we start working on which parts of the economic analysis we really want to have as 'scientific' and therefore in some way external to the various fading fashions of Lysenkoisms that come and go, like slender ones on the fashion runways.

But that would mean that the Chicago Schoolers would have to PUT DOWN THE BONG, and get back to, OH MY GOD!!! that whole failed Pre-911 culture of factualism, as if, OH NO!!!! NO Mr. Bill! NO!! Not stabbing the troops in the back by saying that 911 failed to change the core epistemology!!!!

How ever will americans be able to live!!! and if we go there, OH NO!!!! what will keep them from becoming mass murderers as they lose faith in their false gods and Idols!!!

So maybe we do not want to take Economics out of the realm of Mystico-Religion......

And therefore be able to re-purpose Generalissimo Pinochete as the New Grand Inquisitor of the Holy Order of the True Believers in the one true and only corrector Chicago School of Milton Friedmanism!!!

All Hail the True Profit!!! And the War President who made it all possible....

Why Liberals ARE Economically Evil

Media Matters - Does CNN's John King think construction work is done pro bono?: Apparently. Because asking questions about the stimulus bill, King, perfectly echoing GOP talking points, wonders if a construction project one mayor is proposing (a community wave pool) will actually create jobs. The only real question is how does hiring a construction firm to build a community pool not create jobs? Seriously, we'd love to hear King's explanation...
[ cited from CNN Crashed-and-Burned Watch ]
Well, as we learned in Iranq, when the contractors come through with their international hordes of illegal immigrant labor, those do not create actual jobs inside of Iranq that would create employment and hope for the indigenous population.

This was also proven during the Holy Recoveries from the Tsuenami, and Katrina, the Hurricane, and .... and so many other cases, where government transfers of the tax payers dollars to International Disaster Korps, such as Haliburton of SomeGodlessFerrignDevilLand, who have all shown that these things just can not create indigenous Jobs for persons who live locally, rather than live in the Investment Bubble....

Thus proving that Liberals ARE EVIL!!!!

Which explains why True Americans must move inside the Investment Bubble before it is too late....

Evil Liberals Persecuting White Christian America....

Those of us who hoped that Paul Krugman would recover from his fit of shrillness once we were no longer ruled by wingnuts are disappointed. For now he is seeing wingnuts everywhere. Unfortunately, he is right:
Wingnuts, wingnuts everywhere - Paul Krugman Blog - NYTimes.com: Who knew? The director of the international economics program at the Council on Foreign Relations is a gold bug, who believes that Jacques Rueff demolished the foundations of Keynesian economics in 1947 — a development somehow not noticed by Paul Samuelson, Robert Solow, Milton Friedman, James Tobin …

Is the Council’s science program directed by a creationist who believes that Bishop Wilberforce demolished the theory of evolution in 1860?
[ cf Wingnut Thinktank Watch (Council on Foreign Relations Edition)
Well, there is no beating around the bush there....

That is SOOOOO totally Code WORD Liberalism for they are rolling the trains to the death camps filled with white christian americans.

Evil Liberals Murdering Innocent Persons...

[ cf Now I Remember Why I Haven't Read Anything from National Review since Election Day... ]
WHAT????

HanoiAnnie Coulter is back reporting for the NRO???

OR is it the Evil Fault of the Evil Liberal Media and their failure to report on the number of Murdered HOBO's that evil liberals in the Rich White Elitists Obamanite Klique have been hiding under the porch as a part of their Monolithic War On White Christian America, because these god haters believe all white christian americans are HOBO's... and therefore started slaughtering them before the Official Start of the "Murder White Christian American Season", which as we all know is how they are planning to pay off the federal debt through MASSIVE EXCESSIVE REGULATORY OVER ABUSES of the sale of Licenses to White Christian America Slaughterers who use to be able to do that as a part of their God Given 2nd Ammendment Right against persecution for slaughtering White Christian Americans, just like the founding fathers supported!!!

Which merely goes to show why Gay HomoZeXual Marriage Agendanista HATE The Guacamole....

One of these may be like the other of these...

In a closely watched case involving rendition and torture, a lawyer for the Obama administration apparently surprised a panel of federal appeals judges Monday by pressing ahead with an argument for preserving state secrets originally developed by the Bush administration.
...
“This is not change,” he said in a statement. “This is definitely more of the same. Candidate Obama ran on a platform that would reform the abuse of state secrets, but President Obama’s Justice Department has disappointingly reneged on that important civil liberties issue. If this is a harbinger of things to come, it will be a long and arduous road to give us back an America we can be proud of again.”

[ cf Administration Invokes State Secret Argument ]
While also in the Comedic Uptake:
A U.S. "truth commission" should investigate Bush administration policies including the promotion of war in Iraq, detainee treatment and wiretapping without a warrant, an influential senator proposed on Monday.

Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, urged a commission as a way to heal what he called sharp political divides under former President George W. Bush and to prevent future abuses.

He compared it to other truth commissions, such as one in South Africa that investigated the apartheid era.

"We need to come to a shared understanding of the failures of the recent past," Leahy said in a speech at Georgetown University.

[ cf U.S. senator seeks Bush-era 'truth commission' ]
Failures?

What failures???

All is great with the world!

The Economy is booming, because WWII brought america out of the depression, and that attack of 09/11 was just like when the Japanese Bombed the Philipine Islands and Guam, and that other obscure american military outpost, so clearly we are still MORE winning the War On Whatever than ever before....

So of course all is bliss and happineff....

Beside the WHOLE WORLD CHANGED on 09/11, so how can we even compare today to the times from before?

Since every day you go to war with the Truth with the army that you have, not the truth defeating forces that you would want...
