JAMES' MOST STRATEGIC POSTS: *****
MUCH OF MY POSTING WAS ON FACEBOOK: STARTLOVING1
Paul Krugman: “The poor don’t need lectures on morality, they need more resources…and better economic opportunities.”
Paul Krugman: The point is that extreme inequality and the falling fortunes of America’s workers are a choice, not a destiny imposed by the gods of the market. And we can change that choice if we want to
Paul Krugman on the Real Meaning of the Walmart Wage Hike Don't believe the hype! Rampant inequality is a choice.
***** Paul Krugman on the Real Reason Reality Doesn't Make the Slightest Dent in the Right-wing Brain... Evidence doesn’t matter for the “debate” over climate policy, where I put scare quotes around “debate” because, given the obvious irrelevance of logic and evidence, it’s not really a debate in any normal sense. And this situation is by no means unique. Indeed, at this point it’s hard to think of a major policy dispute where facts actually do matter; it’s unshakable dogma, across the board. And the real question is why.... Well, it strikes me that the immovable position in each of these cases is bound up with rejecting any role for government that serves the public interest.... And why this hatred of government in the public interest? Well, the political scientist Corey Robin argues that most self-proclaimed conservatives are actually reactionaries. That is, they’re defenders of traditional hierarchy — the kind of hierarchy that is threatened by any expansion of government, even (or perhaps especially) when that expansion makes the lives of ordinary citizens better and more secure.
Nyt. There is a still-powerful political faction in America committed to the view that conquest pays, and that in general the way to be strong is to act tough and make other people afraid. One suspects, by the way, that this false notion of power was why the architects of war made torture routine — it wasn’t so much about results as about demonstrating a willingness to do whatever it takes.
article. “Macho posturing, it turns out, makes for bad economies”: Paul Krugman slams Vladimir Putin. [For the criminally dangerous idiots that think Putin LEADS and Pr. Obama does not. Get your heads out of your axxes.]
New York times: Paul Krugman: President Obama among America's most consequential presidents. Freaking United States, do-nothing liberals, with or without Vaseline take this and shove it where the Sun does not shine. President Obama is a consequential president despite you, despite you, despite you, despite you. Just imagine what would have been accomplished if you were real, consequential, responsible, caring, loving human beings. We will never know. He was our last chance and you blew it.

Krugman: Worried About Oligarchy? You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet
'Even those of you who talk about the 1%, you don't really get what's going on. You're living in the past.'
