Re: “Letters

"As a retired philosophy, history and government professor . . . a teacher of logic and critical thinking" - well that explains a lot. If you taught logic and critical thinking as a professor and are still a Dem then that tells me that your grasp of logic and critical thinking is rather poor. But that is to be expected of a 'government professor.'

It took far longer than 8 years to 'create the crisis' - it took 40. The Community Reinvestment Act was passed under Carter. In 2005 when Bush tried to get some oversight of Fannie and Freddie - Rep. Barney Fwank said, "There is nothing wrong with Fan & Fred" - in utter denial of the truth. Do you admit how wrong he was now? Or are you also still living on that river in Egypt?

The budget was not balanced under Clinton, he just put the Social Security "lockbox" on the general budget, and SS was doomed the day it was created under FDR, it just took 60 years to go bust.

You are right in one aspect, "It takes time." But your view is still too myopic. The damage done by the Dems will take decades to repair. They do not know how, and never will "normalize the economic climate" since they broke it in the first place.

A is A professor and socialism doesn't work. And I, for one, am tired of repeating the lessons from history that you lefties refuse to learn.

You are committing the Fallacy that the theory creates the reality. You have it exactly backwards.
