The right wing is so predicable. They will carry on about how low the attendance "actually" was while also denying the cause/effect of austerity. The old Thatcher/Reagan propaganda worked very well to con millions into thinking massive corporations and financial institutions represent the best interests of working people. Silly silly right wingers, oh how you have sold out your fellow man at the alter of a failing ideology. The thing is, your bad ideas are chained to the rest of us. This fawning sycophantic support for "free market" dogma...for slashing public services and support for a perpetual war waged on the working class.
You have been conned into believing you're rich. Conned into thinking the top .01%'s interests align with your own. You are the problem. Just as much as any economists or politicians. Your support makes all this possible. Pat yourselves on the back for a job well done. You've made dependable lackeys. Next you will shift the blame to "immigrants". Very very predicable.

"The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples' money." - Margaret Thatcher
I have nothing to add to that.

I really think a lot of people on here are logging on from public housing with their free internet, and as they puff on their doobie, think of ways to annoy those of us who have done something with their lives.

If you want the government to listen your going to have to get a lot angrier than that.
The history of modern, civilised America opened with one of those great, really liberating, really revolutionary wars of which there have been so few compared to the vast number of wars of conquest which, like the present imperialist war, were caused by squabbles among kings, landowners or capitalists over the division of usurped lands or ill-gotten gains. That was the war the American people waged against the British robbers who oppressed America and held her in colonial slavery, in the same way as these “civilised” bloodsuckers are still oppressing and holding in colonial slavery hundreds of millions of people in India, Egypt, and all parts of the world.
About 150 years have passed since then. Bourgeois civilisation has borne all its luxurious fruits. America has taken first place among the free and educated nations in level of development of the productive forces of collective human endeavour, in the utilisation of machinery and of all the wonders of modern engineering. At the same time, America has become one of the foremost countries in regard to the depth of the abyss which lies between the handful of arrogant multimillionaires who wallow in filth and luxury, and the millions of working people who constantly live on the verge of pauperism. The American people, who set the world an example in waging a revolutionary war against feudal slavery, now find themselves in the latest, capitalist stage of wage-slavery to a handful of multimillionaires, and find themselves playing the role of hired thugs who, for the benefit of wealthy scoundrels, throttled the Philippines in 1898 on the pretext of “liberating” them, and are throttling the Russian Socialist Republic in 1918 on the pretext of “protecting” it from the Germans.
