Getting it

Dave Wheelock over at The Small Towns Papers gets it, in the same way we Progressives do here in Worcester. "A good peasant is loyal, simpleminded, and full of misdirected anger.” And the Oligarchy will always be adept in first stoking the anger and then making sure its misdirected. Its the anger about the financial crisis, that everyone feels in one way or another.

And the misdirection, by Fox news, Newt Gingrich and the far right is towards our Democratic President. So called TEA bagging is just the beginning, as over time that unholy alliance deflects blame over the crisis to the the Obama administration, never mind how they came into office as the inheritors of that really big problem, and are doing their very best to solve it, for real.

So Dave, gets it, the real causes of the crisis, as described by Paul Krugumn, Joeseph Stiglitz, Simon Johnson, William Black and other "progressive" economists. Progressive because they remain reality based, smart, and able to articulate the viewpoint of the rest of us not in the billion dollar club ... banking that works for the average American, the way it should be.

So read Dave's article, TEA baggers, and try for smart instead of angry. Want to really understand what's going on? Try
