Re: “Red Dawn

Good lord these are some ignorant comments.

Bizarre half (to be charitable) understandings of government and American history cobbled together from the same 6 or 7 incredibly partisan right wing sources. It's embarrassing that know-nothingism is once again the main calling card of the American 'right'. Goldwater would have lost his lunch if he had known all his worst predictions/fears about the direction of American right-wing "thinking" would come true. Theocratic serfs and xenophobic nationalists, blind to nearly every lesson history has taught us, proud of their steadfast refusal to study ANYTHING. They are exclusively 'informed' by christo-fascist opinion merchants and corporate public relations departments.

The Americans 'Right'.... Who are they? They are whatever the propaganda campaigns of the wealthy class tell them to be. Couldn't be 'serfier' if they were trudging around a castle with a bundle of sticks on their backs.

Hey "tea partiers" ... Congratulate one another as much as you like in your safe, protective little opinion bubbles, but know that you are the ANTITHESIS of the REAL, independent, skeptical, loyal-to-his-neighbor, speak-truth-to-power American Citizen.

You are all-day suckers, every one of you.... Selling out your country for a pat on the head from whichever one of the Koch Brothers deigns to smile down upon you. Y'oughta be ashamed, but you're too d--- stupid to know it.

One thing's for sure: Judging by these comments, the half-wit that wrote this laughable dreck has found his target audience... The aggressively ignorant 'right' are out in droves.

Love it, League of Nations... Analysis of the stock market from someone that cannot spell or master basic grammar. Doesn't make you a bad person (though your expressed opinions define you so), but it definitely makes it clear that you have absolutely no clue what you're talking about.

But I'm sure the glen beck site, or the breitbart site, or whatever silly, specious disinformation hub you cribbed it from would be proud of your efforts.

Might want to read 'The Legacy of George W Bush' by Republican Bruce Bartlett for a basic primer on the economy President Obama inherited. Worst since the Great Depression. Worst in almost a century. I'm guessing you think that's "the blame game' (an action that is defined by republicans as 'anytime someone wants to hold a republican accountable for their actions'), but economies do not magically reset themselves after 8 years of economic malfeasance.

Lovely that Congressional republicans are putting their extreme ideological agenda ahead of their oaths of office, huh? That's helpful.

Might also want to look up 'the Dunning-Kruger Effect' and 'confirmation bias'.

Might as well look up 'serf' while you're at it.
