Busting manufacturing and the Unions in America under Reagan was the beginning of the end and George W. Bush and his Cabal in the US House & Senate just finished it off. As Thom Hartmann points out in the above video, America is technically a third world country right now, because we are the largest importer of finished goods and exporter of raw materials.
And what happened when the republicans blocked the auto bailout bill just a few days ago? Well, let’s just say GM decided to give those republican Senators a chance to earn their $165,000/year pay by announcing the layoff of autoworkers in mainly their districts! Yep. I guess GM was thinking these tough Union-busting-assholes could fend off the hungry sharks all by themselves. It will be so sad seeing these Senators ripped apart by their limbs when these workers start losing their jobs….all because these Senators decided to go after black Americans once again through the back door!
Americans are not stupid. We know exactly who is to blame for our current economic situation. Our nation’s collapse has been in the making for almost 30 years now and we all know the republicans have controlled the Congress for a good portion of that time, even if they didn’t control the White House. Hell, under George W. Bush, the republicans controlled the White House and the Congress, and what did they do during that time? Nothing! They did nothing to regulate the banking industry, Wall Street, oil industry (high prices caused many small businesses to fold), or the auto industry! Instead, they focused on Terri Schiavo and absolutely refused to allow the Democrats to talk about Iraq or bring forth legislation on anything. And what have the republicans done since 2006 after the Democrats took control of both Houses? Oh that’s right! They’ve blocked everything the Democrats have wanted to do. And they’re still doing it. The republicans are now to blame for more jobs being lost in our country and it’s all because they live in this warped little reality where they believe the only way for America to be strong is to lose all it’s jobs, to owe the planet trillions of dollars, and to have no regulations, because with laws, rules, and regulations, that means the republicans of America have to sit up straight and be good. They can’t handle this kind of thing, because they’re all criminals on so many levels!
This is not an Obama Recession as the reich wingers are trying to say it is. It’s a Hate Party Depression brought to us by the Reagan Crazies with the Bush Crazies finishing it off. The End.
