These REALLY are going to be fun times...

Giggler Quote:
In 2005, Amity Shlaes wrote a Financial Times column warning about Fannie and Freddie, and considering nationalization and privatization. She said: "It is time to end Fannie's creepy relationship with government. Few projects could do more to sustain the American dream."[1]
[ cf WikiPedia: Amity Shlaes ]
yes, it really is that funnny a wiki pedia entry. I mean, who can forget how that was SOOOO the heart and soul of the Religious Fight back in 2005, what with the Gay HomoZexual Pirate Zombie Canadianists everywhere...

{ why is it that these freaks all hate some of the GSE, but can't come up with a theory about which parts of what creepy relationships they want to be creeped out by... }

Well it seems that others are not understand how the Great Depression would have been, if it had been what it was suppose to have been, as told in say Amity Shlaes cute new book about "the Forgotten Man" - which just happens to be a Busby Berkley song. ( google it, and catch the films. { cf about mashups } ).

Then there is:
Oh for pity’s sake. Some real news outlet needs to publish a nice short piece on conservative falsehoods about the New Deal. Amity Shlaes’s Liberty League retread has got a new lease of life, thanks to the Daily Show of all outlets (Jon Stewart, you should be ashamed) and now in the Wall Street Journal’s five “myths” about the Great Depression, we find stated as fact
As late as 1938, after almost a decade of governmental “pump priming,” almost one out of five workers remained unemployed.</blockqouote>Readers of this site know this is simply not true. For pity’s sake, Conrad Black knows this is not true. (You may here enjoy Bill Scher pointing out that Shlaes describes the Historical Statistics of the United States as an “obscurer” source of data.)
[ cf Wall Street Journal Death Spiral Watch (Amity Shlaes Birdcage Liner Edition) ]
Show of Hands Boys and NonPerKin, remember when the Wall Street Journal was a conservative publication with a commitment to integrity???

Now re-read ALL of it madmerle and this way when we are at Leigh’s Favorite Books you may better understand why I looked at the book, noted busby berkley, and prefer the later....

Ah yes, so where do we park the part of the PP&E discussion about recovering the actual real american history of the America on Planet Earth?
