    my personal favorite is the euphemism “public-private partnerships’ ~Obama loves that one

    as g.singlaub says about such government programs, they always end up ‘privatizing the profits and socializing the losses’

    you are right !

    I do support raising taxes on selfish AnnRynd acolyte dipshits who have not paid their fair share to support our country for generations –

    Odd that people such as you can always find money to torture, invade countries and illegally wiretap my ass – but are all discomfited by the notion of supporting our mothers and our brothers

    how about (as in the Eisenhower & Kennedy eras…you know ‘bipartisanship’) a 90% tax on rich selfish fake so-called ‘wealth builders’ who only can succeed by having their wealth protected by the nanny state – see tax and inheritance laws, no-bid cost plus government contracting, getting paid by the government to off-shore jobs, government support of failed and immoral industries (insurance and drug companies come quickly to mind) ‘quantitative easing’, get-out-of-jail schemes for bankers and the rest of the personal wealth protection and projection programs carried out courtesy of our spineless and beholden politicians from both parties –

    question mulp
    – which nanny state supported ‘free market- pull myself up by my own boot’ straps rich narcissist enriching program did you gulp from to become the sorry creature you are who is relegated to trolling the internet to cry support for rapacious amoral assholes?

    Christ said – you will not get into heaven if you are rich

    Kropotkin said – all is for all

    Proudhon said – property is theft

    I say – tax the rich to save the rest

    great article – recommended

    job training is the bullshit backend of our oligarch supporting dems&repubs NAFTA&free trade charade -

    re-training does not guarranty (as the article points out) a job – and certainly doesn’t bring manufacturing and other high paying jobs back from the world’s ‘free trade zones’

    what it does do is, in many cases, ramp up new educational loans for non-existing jobs (how many culinary school graduates with a new debt of $80,000 are head chefs and how many work for fast food companies?) & allows the slide in working peoples’ wages to continue – until we reach that dreamed of by oligharchs – ‘parity’ with wages earned by China’s work force…

    let’s try another WPA -
    5,900 new schools; 9,300 new auditoriums, gyms, and recreational buildings; 1,000 new libraries; 7,000 new dormitories; and 900 new armories. In addition, infrastructure projects included 2,302 stadiums, grandstands, and bleachers; 52 fairgrounds and rodeo grounds; 1,686 parks covering 75,152 acres; 3,085 playgrounds; 3,026 athletic fields; 805 swimming pools
    &
    hired artists like Rothko, Pollak, Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton – and a component of the WPA, the federal music project, employed more than 16,000 musicians at its peak and gave free music lessons to 130,000 adults and children.

    ‘Will it be modern madness or reefer madness?’ – acmerecords at firedoglake’

    example paragraph from diary:
    “A cannabis user in America knows one thing is sure – that the system of politics and law enforcement lies about who (and for what reason) it is doing its protecting; and who (and for what reason) will be ignored, imprisoned, abandoned, trampled upon and dictated to. A substance that clarifies in the minds of users that the American government is a lying, rich person protecting racket that disregards science and morality in service of protecting the wealth of the already wealthy and perpetuating bigoted stereotypes is a very dangerous commodity indeed in modern America.”
