Libertarians always stress that it was going off the gold standard that set our decline in motion, but I have always thought it was Reagan economics. I still bemoan the fact that I was too young to vote in 1980.

I completely agree. The whole nation fell deep asleep after that election.... And during that sleep the cancer of deregulation (among many other diseases) crept deep into our bones). But miracles happen all the time. I believe this patient is destined for a miraculous recovery.

The nation is certainly waking up.

[-] 1 points by therising (6643) 2 years ago

I agree. If you look at today's news page on this site, I think you'll be very pleased. The Americab spring is emerging. :)

"The banks and the corporations had a simple plan: to remake America to serve them. But pulling it off would require electing a spokesmodel as president. And on November 4th, 1980, that's what we did." -- Michael Moore

Totally absurd but true.

[-] 1 points by therising (6643) 2 years ago

Amazing that Americans fell asleep for 30 years...but now we're waking up!

The art of distraction. Watch my hand so the other one with the knife can go unseen.

[-] 1 points by therising (6643) 2 years ago

Yes. Watch the shiny object....

[+] -5 points by DKAtoday (22338) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

The distractions are starting to fail them.

[-] 2 points by therising (6643) 2 years ago

And the people are starting to get more and more organized. See today's news page on this website. I think you'll be pleased.

[+] -5 points by DKAtoday (22338) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

I am more than pleased. This is great. This is exactly what needs to be done. Its very positive and creative outreach. Love it. Organization with motive power.

[+] -5 points by DKAtoday (22338) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Good Morning. Thanks for the heads up.

[-] 1 points by therising (6643) 2 years ago

You're welcome. A very positive day on the news page.

[+] -4 points by DKAtoday (22338) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

YES - the news that counts has been getting better. Good to see.

Hey - if you have a moment stop by my troll post.

I seem to have struck a nerve.

We move forward.

[-] 2 points by therising (6643) 2 years ago

I was just reading it. Amazing how much energy the trolls put in when Occupy starts gaining steam :)

[+] -5 points by DKAtoday (22338) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

They do not like shining lights.

Makes them have to scurry under the refrigerator.

[-] 2 points by therising (6643) 2 years ago

Exactly.

[+] -5 points by DKAtoday (22338) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Bring out the klieg lights. ( high intensity spots )

As we move forward.

Together.

[-] 2 points by therising (6643) 2 years ago

I am all for the klieg lights!!! What areas of corporate influence need to be exposed and how should the klieg lights expose them? Obviously this forum is only .001% of the population. How do we get to the rest?

[+] -4 points by DKAtoday (22338) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Communication - Here - Social Media - On the Street.

We communicate to educate and expose the lies.

People.

We move forward - TOGETHER.

Share good information found here and every where else.

We need to cover the story for the Public.

The media is not.

Right on

It's not my comment that is missing it is your post that is missing.

Do you need to edit the title so the system does not auto hide?

[+] -5 points by DKAtoday (22338) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

It's weird I commented on this post and the post does not show-up on the forum page.
