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%.

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.

INCREDIBLE!  My admiration for the 'historian' knows no bounds.


All good people hold the hope that this goes viral.

 

Wonder what the tiny fingers controlled by the mind of the morbidly obese psychopath will tweet about this?

 

Time wounds all heels.

Have pity for Melania - she wakes up with a jerk every morning
