What Avedon Said

I've got nothing but a pernicious head cold this morning, so I'll let Avedon Carol do my talking for me:

But there's a younger generation out there that, as BDBlue points out, grew up in the Reagan era and doesn't even appreciate what Social Security has accomplished. Young, healthy kids who are now seeing Democrats who were put in power by liberals openly transferring taxpayers' wealth to criminal banksters, and who are about to force them to buy overpriced crappy insurance from the same criminals who've been denying them health care all along.

And the only people who are suggesting in public that these Democrats might be doing them wrong are...right-wingers whose stock-in-trade is bashing the left. And there's no one on TV telling them that it's not "blacks" and "liberals" and "gays" and "illegal aliens" who are responsible for this.

I don't think we're going to see a more progressive future. I think the backlash against the conservative program that Obama and the Democratic leadership are currently helping to cement will be aimed at liberals, not at the conservatives who have worked so tirelessly and effectively for 35 years to destroy what they regard as the greatest threat to their dominion: the American middle-class.

Exactly so.

As I said at the time: Avedon: You're absolutely, completely right.

The genius of the owners was to install a "novelty" Democrat to take responsibility, and absorb the ferocious recriminations coming from, 30 years of neo-liberalism at home and abroad.

Sometimes I think the only reason there's a soi-disant two-party system is so that the Owners can fob off their failures on the "party of the People."

I will add, it is impossible that the propaganda establishment in the country would permit the Owners themselves to be subject to blame for the current ruin.

Ergo, they will blame liberals. I think there's a pretty good chance that they'll put bounties on our heads...
