  •  Yes, Jim P, I appreciate this comment a lot... (6+ / 0-)

    ...more than you might realize. There are a couple of dozen folks, both here, and including others that host their own blogs, that have gone very far out of their way--quite purposefully attempting to conflate my commentary into something other than it is/was--to posit that what you say isn't so.

      They do the same thing when anyone quotes Krugman or Stiglitz.

      Those Third Way types are all heat and no light.

      Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

    •  I'm a highly critical reader of information. (12+ / 0-)

      You'll throw in opinions, but they are always clearly your opinions, and they are clearly always related to a previous or following link which are your basis for expressing them.

      And those links are always either mainstream, commonly reported, sources, or well established and legitimate commentators on economics who themselves are relying on court records, official statistics, or the commonly available news stories.

      I'm glad you appreciate my comment, but know that it's not a fraction of the appreciation I, and hundreds (thousands?) of others feel for your diaries.

      If not for you, the bizarrely-never-Rescued-or-Frontpaged gjohnsit, Joan McCarter and Meteor Blades, and a few irregular contributors, people coming to this site would have no sense whatsoever of what's going on in the world of power-as-actually-practiced.

      Thank you.

      PS: What's truly funny is the people who call you a "Doom and Gloomer" for these last, what? 7 years, when the objective circumstance is that we remain in a major Depression, where by every standard life is getting worse for ordinary people year after year, and there is no one in office even talking about that.

      Markos! Not only are the Gates Not Crashed, they've fallen on us. Actual Representatives are what we urgently need, because we have almost none.

    •  Yeah. here we go again (0+ / 0-)

      no wonder you've ended up laughing at it. after a few times, it just becomes farcical.

      if necessary for years; if necessary, alone
