Duct tape, paper clips can't save MacGyver

As they lie and lie and lie.

"The MacGyver Institute promotes personal responsibility."

Oh sure it does. But not lying might be a step toward it.

The truth is that there are people that will do or say anything for money no matter how it hurts people. There are people that tear down good businesses to try to increase stock price for the short term. It also appears that trillions are being spent to try to fix the largest scam ever perpetrated on this country.

Folkbum should not view everybody as an adversary but as a potential ally against those who have evil intentions.

The old union model is very unpopular with many
people. When people see how it can benefit them and the economy in general, they will start to see them more favorably.

Points taken, but it's MacGyver that views Folkbum as the adversary. If MacGyver's arguments are so compelling, why does it have to lie? The same goes for much of the local right-wing commentary.

You know the old saying, "money talks and bullshit walks"!

Why lie, when you can imply? And flog the same story for months at a time?

I do. What gets me is the most prominent and allegedly authoritative voices around here also happen to be the biggest bullshitters.

That probably is true of some but not all. I think things are going to be done differently and am watching closely how the upper powers seem to be bringing it around. I agree that its hard to tell what is bs and what is politics.

And the worst bullshitters. If it weren't for the telltale talking points, they'd be indistinguishable from content farm SEO serfs.

PS - I saw former Pres. Clinton on National news who was encouraging Pres Obama to work out a program with the Repubs before healthcare eats up our entire economy.

Would you consider him a credible source?

Prediction: in eight months the perfesser will be spelling it "Bawney Fwank."
