From the 'Subject Matter Expert' Himself... (Heh.)

What a find by MuscleDaddy today!

In the most stark and telling role-reversal, Vladimir Putin understands what America is hurtling toward with the "Stimulus":

"Russian Prime Minister Vladamir Putin has said the US should take a lesson from the pages of Russian history and not exercise “excessive intervention in economic activity and blind faith in the state’s omnipotence”.

“In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state’s role absolute,” Putin said… “In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.”How do you dismiss it as "Fear Mongering" when the former Head of the KGB recognizes this as a giant government over-reach toward Socialism?
What could possibly carry more weight, at this moment, than the current Prime Minister of Russia saying: "Don't do this - We've been where you are - Don't Do This...." ??
I know the answer to this question: it carries more weight in a country when 53% of voters care more about how its politicians say something than it does about what they say. And who, over time, have become numbed to the point of utter stupidity or indifference by the non-stop flow of lies coming out of Washington and over their "elitist approved" media airwaves.

Talk about "The Boy Who Cried Wolf"... They've been crying "wolf" since Vietnam. They can't stop; they have no idea how to govern. Fear mongering is what they do. Everything is "we must have it now or else...catastrophe..."

Hint to Washington: even the brain dead are catching on now... And man will they ever catch on when they wake up and see how their children's future is being frittered away to pay off interest groups and lobbyists.
