The Leftovers are Becoming Stale

I love this video. It is Paul Ryan trying to sell warmed over "you can't tax the rich because they create the jobs" while his town hall Republican audience is violently against this hogwash. They bought it for 30 years, but they've had enough. They've waited for 30 years to see the "trickle down" economy deliver something to them and they have now realized they have been taken for a ride...

I sure hope this is like the first crocus of spring, or the wonderful daffodil whose early bloom reminds you that the deathscape of winter is giving way to a new dawning, a new time of hope and growth.

Update: I just read this bit about Republicans wanting to abolish child labor laws as part of their rush to recapture the "good old days" of the early 19th century when the poor went about in rags while the upper class had big houses packed with servants to do their bidding.

I love the fact that he claims that child labour is reprehensible, but gosh, he wants to dismantle the laws because he believes in "states rights", yep, that "states rights" that led to the Civil War. This guy is a Neanderthal. Wait... that is an insult to the Neanderthals who probably had more principles and ethics than this guy!
