The ‘Follow Up’ to the “War is Hell” Story the MSM Will Never Let You See

Widow of Luke pilot lashes out at media

Ginger Gilbert, making her first public comments since the video emerged last week, said Tuesday that she couldn’t remain silent after watching media coverage of a “disturbing video” of the corpse, identification card and crash site of her husband, Maj. Troy Gilbert.

“When media chooses to use Troy’s plane crash as a political catalyst to generate anti-war sentiment, it only serves to degrade the moral integrity my husband possessed and the morale of those still selflessly serving,” Gilbert said at news conference at Glendale’s Falcon Dunes Golf Course, across from Luke.

“Every time the press lends credibility and significance to terrorist propaganda clearly designed to erode public support or questions the validity of our brave soldiers’ selfless acts of service and the war itself,” she added, “it only serves to damage our country from within its own borders and embolden those who would do us harm.”

And He Calls Himself an “Economist”

Paul Krugman – Op-Ed Columnist – New York Times Blog

Middle class America: That’s the country I grew up in. It was a society without extremes of wealth or poverty [TC: “never vacationed in Appalachia, did you?”], a society of broadly shared prosperity [giggle at his grasp of America’s economic history], partly because strong unions [google “Hoffa+mob”], a high minimum wage Caeser Chavez? You’re wanted on the white courtesy phone], and a progressive [GIMME!] tax system helped limit inequality. It was also a society in which political bipartisanship meant something: in spite of all the turmoil of Vietnam and the civil rights movement [when RFK told Hoover to spy on Dr. King], in spite of the sinister machinations of Nixon and his henchmen [a failed burglary affected the economy?], it was an era in which Democrats and Republicans agreed on basic values and could cooperate across party lines.

This is sheer, psychopathic, reality denialating madness.

… because the politics and economics of inequality will, I expect, be central to many of the blog posts – although I also expect to be posting on a lot of other issues, from health care to high-speed Internet access, from productivity to poll analysis. Many of the posts will be supplements to my regular columns; I’ll be using this space to present the kind of information I can’t provide on the printed page – especially charts and tables, which are crucial to the way I think about most of the issues I write about.

According to the provided chart, from 1947 to 1977, nothing happened; the numbers were basically stagnant… he considers this the golden years?

He’s a fucking idiot. Gimme five minutes in a trading pit and I’d own this guy’s first born.

Luskin’s gonna eat your lunch, chump.

UPDATE: LET THE FISKING BEGIN!
