The 1929 disaster was called the "great depression." No-one was blamed. This mess we're in was caused by greed, bad leadership and a lot of other secondary reasons. It should be named to reflect those failures.

I just got a tweet, on twitter, from jayfarrington suggesting that we name this economic nightmare the "Bush" depression. "Give credit where credit's due," he says.

But I'm not sure. Bush was put there by the Supreme court, kept there by NEOcons and THEOcons, REPUBLIcons and MOR-ons.

The coporatists funded him. The Catholic cardinals and megachurch ministers endorsed him, mainstream media covered for him.

But not JUST for Bush. They all conspired to enable a few things to happen. The theocons were working to amp up the death, carnage, hate and destruction in the middle east to quicken the coming of the rapture.

We're seeing how Sarah Palin has been able to so quickly raise the level of hate and intolerance. We're seeing how the weak character of John McCain, who probably did have good intentions, has fallen to the pressures of the right wing win-by-any-means toxic political machine.

We know and are reminded every day, when we watch the network news, morning news, just about any news except for Olbermann, Maddow and Caffrey, how the sellout, fake journalists pander to and provide cover for the lies and half truths told to promote the neocon, corporatist, theocon, miitary-industrial, globalist agendas.


My point is, let's nail a name to this economic disaster so credit given where credit is due, as Jay suggested. But let's get really creative and see if we can come up with a name that really creative.

I don't have an ultimate idea. It'll be fun to see what readers come up with. Then, I'll pick the ones that look best and that get more comments agreeing with them to a few sites that do polls.

So what will it be?

NeoTheocon depression?

Should it be called a depression. It could be an econotastropy.

Hmmm. Neocon, Theocon econotastrophy?

Probably too long, but a nice rhythm to it.

Other possible words to use:

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
