Memory is the ultimate fact checker.  I remember pretty well what happened from nixon forward. Scouts right.

Gee, like so many of the Conservative posts here.


 


So the far left can't deny that the poster took the thread off topic,  but also the obligatory sarcastic partisan comments? 

 

Since this is the case, might as well comment on your signature line...So there was a sign at the Women's March back in January saying "FAKE 45 #illegitimate", doesn't mean a thing.  We're all stuck with the electoral voting results until legally replaced.  Might as well accept it until then.

   Why are the complainers actually complaining?       I was hoping for a redux of the supposed "real man" (or not) - the Western "hero" who couldn't stomach cancer - that spoke those oh so (not) awesome words that idiots continue to spout today as they attempt to show their manliness after hiking up their pants.

Might say that this is a post that is completely off-topic from a TV western from 1958.  The only thing connected to money in that episode was the mob breaking into the bank and the amount the confidence man was extorting.

Along the lines of another poster's comments about having nothing at all to do with the topic.

Back in 1958, we had laws that prevented Credit companies from charging 45% and adding fees that raised the effective APR of a loan WAY over 100%. We also had laws that prevented you from telling lies in public about people or evernts, laws that were used to sue a sizable band of American NAZIs out of existence for denying the Holicaust, and cost papers like the National Enquirer a bundle.

 

When Nixon launched his "Southern Strategy" to bring former Dixiecrat racists into the GOP, all that legal restriction on lying became a problem, so GOPers invented Dogwhistle Vocabularies - words like "Inner City; States Rights and Forced Busing" to cue the listerner the discussion was really about Blacks. This was brought to its zenyth by Reagan with his outlandishly exaggerated story of the Welfare Queen who bilked the system for $150,000/year without working a day. The fact it was totally bogus didn't matter, his Bubba Base ate it up and KNEW (wink wink, nudge nudge) Ronny didn't like no black people neither.

 

Then Reagan ended the NEED for dogwhistles by killing the Fairness Doctrine, removing the penalties for lying about stuff and people on any broadcast media, and this led the GOPerLords to buy the National Enquirer, small newspaper and radio station chains and finally Fox Broadcasting. Thus FAKE NEWS and ALTERNATIVE FACTS were born.

 

When several hundred prominant republican donors went to jail for their part in the Savings and Loan scandal of the 1970's and 80's, the GOPerLords moved swiftly to make certain there would be no laws to violate the next time they decimated the middle class with a financial scam, and by 2008 they has so totally LEGALIZED the things that put those 200+ fraudsters in jail in 1989 that only ONE person served a DAY for destroying the World economy.

 

You can almost understand why bubba would like having media and politicians be able to tell him the lies he himself believes about blacks, the poor, foreigners, et al, but what is not so easy to understand is how he supports those liars when they redistribute everything he's got into their pockets using different lies.


WOW!!! That was quite a hate filled blob of nostalgia for 1958.


Got a tender spot where the truth hurts more than usual, did he?
