|Very concerning commments from Trent Edwards after the pack game. He said the Bills were confused and not prepared to face GB's defensive schemes. As much as I have defended Jauron, when your starting QB says the team is not prepared for an opponent, that is inexcusable whether it's preseason or not.|
|3-D---couldn't agree more, it reminds of the commercial where Lombardi is yelling on the sideline "What the HELL is going on Here"...|
|Here ya go Bilz. Reality|
Call me naïve, but I actually hoped that the failure of Reaganism in practice would kill it. It turns out, however, to be a zombie doctrine: even though it should be dead, it keeps on coming.
Let’s talk for a moment about why the age of Reagan should be over.
First of all, even before the current crisis Reaganomics had failed to deliver what it promised. Remember how lower taxes on high incomes and deregulation that unleashed the “magic of the marketplace” were supposed to lead to dramatically better outcomes for everyone? Well, it didn’t happen.
To be sure, the wealthy benefited enormously: the real incomes of the top .01 percent of Americans rose sevenfold between 1980 and 2007. But the real income of the median family rose only 22 percent, less than a third its growth over the previous 27 years.
Moreover, most of whatever gains ordinary Americans achieved came during the Clinton years. President George W. Bush, who had the distinction of being the first Reaganite president to also have a fully Republican Congress, also had the distinction of presiding over the first administration since Herbert Hoover in which the typical family failed to see any significant income gains.
And then there’s the small matter of the worst recession since the 1930s.
I don't imagine you will be hearing that on FAUX news any time soon.
