Deficit Spending NOW!

The polls don't back assertions that the public is horrified over the deficit.

In fact the public understands that you have to give the economy more than 9 months to recover from more than three decades of the ignorant trickle down b.s. (since Regan swallowed the kool-aid). We also know what happened to Japan's lost decade - no sorry fellas - in order to correct Reganomics and the zombie worshipers of corporate and billionaire welfare we have to pump money into the private sector (middle class) - in order to correct the fraud that resulted from deregulation.

For some reason we didn't learn from the savings and loan scandals. So now we have to pump money into the economy - its called capital investment - but what it doesn't mean is bridges to nowhere and tax giveaways and subsidies to businesses and households THAT DON'T NEED THEM.

We have to unleash the green economy and push the status quo out of the way. Big oil, big coal, and nuclear power are detrimental to the health of the planet and each other (cancer) and contribute to the health care drain on the economy.

They are last century technologies barbaric in their business model and laser locked on their micro economic business plans. Its time for a macro-economic view point - instead of all these separate interest back stabbing their way to our tax dollar pile. We need to invest in the future, upgrade the grid, retrofit the cities and advance solar thermal, wind, geothermal and fusion power.

The status quo is in the way big time. But all of us out here who are not part of the corporate propaganda machine that runs our media (television, print and radio)- we know the future is green - that the jobs are in the green sector and that our only chance at survival is to live in harmony with the earth.

Sorry if that's a little too touchy feely for you - but the dog eat dog - hoard all the money at the top - deregulated = lawlessness, corruption and the pilfering of grandmas nest egg crowd - are dead wrong, and they'll take all of us down with them if they don't get with the program.

The big monied assholes don't give a crap about the macro-economic realities and integration of our global market system. Its not a game to see who can die with the most toys boys - you can't eat the damn money - you freakin' morons.
