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.
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.
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?
Should it be called a depression. It could be an econotastropy.
Hmmm. Neocon, Theocon econotastrophy?
Probably too long, but a nice rhythm to it.
