Legend in his own mind
Remember Wayne Root, the nut who ran for President, the crazy man who is a leader of the Tea Party?
Well he has his own screed - and he's pushing Hitlerian nonsense like his handlers wish him to. Jeff Koopersmith has the amazing and disgusting details…
My commentary today is about the economic ignorance between people with heart – also called liberals – and morons on the right.
Let me reacquaint you first with former joke-candidate for President of the United States, Wayne Allyn Root, who is as close to a neo-Nazi as one can be, and a leader of the Tea Party movement.
He publishes some gibberish titled “Personal Liberty Digest”. Read it when you need a grim laugh.
I did — and then decided it was time to respond to his recent editorial — or, more accurately, "idiotorial."
Wayne says that we live in two Americas. The first is made of those that are “government workers” that “almost always support Obama and vote Democrat” and who think that private industry is doing well. He tells us the second America is made up of private sector entrepreneurs, business owners, and job creators who almost always vote for conservatives. Wayne purposely leaves out “employees” of those “job creators” – I wonder why. Perhaps it’s because he is embarrassed that most of them are too smart to buy his moronic rants. Hate to tell ya Wayne – but the only job creator is DEMAND - demand by the trolls you despise. They create the jobs because they like the product or service. Most of your people don’t create anything real – they just resell someone elses ideas or inventions.
Wayne thinks there is a field of analysis called the dimension of Economic Ignorance and he believes that this ignorance is found only in liberals – or government workers as he classifies them so inelegantly. This must be his sole and solo proprietary field inasmuch as there is no such arena except in his very gruesome and greed-filled delusional mind.
Wayne writes: “To save America, we must ignore those in the government sector and start listening to those in the private sector who are living at “ground zero”. They are the experts. They have “boots on the ground”. They understand firsthand what Obama’s policies have created: complete economic collapse.”
Gee – then why are living at ground zero? If they are so smart – they should be at the top of their game – at all times?
I am not sure I’ve ever read something so totally ignorant, nonsensical, and containing multiple lies. First, what does he mean by “save America”? Does she need to be saved, or is this one more ludicrous lie that ultra-right wing morons push on us?
People in the private sector are not living at “ground zero” any more than most other Americans who are suffering still under the likes of Cheneyesque ignorance unconsciously followed by “good pal” and not-so-bright George W. Bush who seems to have been mind-controlled by “The Dick” for eight some odd years. If we are at ground zero there is none other to blame than that the past “W” Administration who spent as much on war – AND on the social safety net – as the total of the budget deficit (also meaningless in terms of the rest of the world, also in deficit for similar reasons – people are not paying their owed from decency taxes). Cheney spent like a drunken Black Ops general while George W. – a Christian – tried to keep the poorest Americans in Velveeta cheese, second hand clothing, and rat-infested apartments as best he could. After all, George W. Bush is a Christian man – and he is fun to have a beer with and talk about the good all days of booze, cocaine, and wicked women. I liked him.
People who own their own businesses – big or small – usually have no expertise in business at all. Most of the honest owners will tell you that more than 50% of their wealth came from “luck” and the rest by hiring people far smarter than they. The rest came from the government Wayne so detests.
I judge this by my colleague students in grade school, high school, and college. The worst students there are some of the wealthiest men I know – and that’s no lie. None, I can assure you knew or knows anything about economics. What some of them knew about was something about a product, service, or ability and how to sell it.
That is a tremendous gift – but it is not “expert” and usually comes from happenstance and long periods of rote learning on the job – as owners of course – most of whom go bankrupt time after time before finding the Rx for success.
On the other hand, there are many liberals who were straight A students at the best schools and the finest universities and who are now collecting food stamps because their advanced degrees are of no use in a world economy that does not bow and scrape to America’s fiscal or military might as much as it once did or because they are people of color or uneducated and living in our nation.
Wayne goes on and on, much as I must do this day.
He claims that it’s a “dirty secret” that the “left” thinks the economy is in great shape and Republicans (Republicans? Wayne is a tea party freak soon to be expunged from congress and the RNC roster). The facts are that there are far more highly educated liberals than conservatives.
Many of us don’t vote at all – although I do - from nostalgia if nothing else. However, every liberal I know – try Nobelist Paul Krugman for instance - believes that we are in dire trouble – but not because we hand out money to the poor, but because we haven’t learned some basic Keynesian truths – that stimulating the economy by spending money on public and indirectly on private enterprise is the way out of recession.
Wayne is merely parroting things he hears on right wing talk radio I would imagine.
Little-mind Wayne suggests that the President may be “delusional”- yet Wayne got maybe a few hundred votes from people who actually supported his own full-of-baloney presidential hopes. He also says the President and those who support him are ignorant and illiterate. Nothing could describe members of the Tea Party more articulately. And they are so far to the right that they think THEIR family values should be ours.
Here’s the killer: Wayne-Boy tells us:
Most Democrats simply punch a clock and get paid week in and week out — the same as last year and five years ago and 10 years ago. As a matter of fact, they get automatic raises every year if they work for government. As long as they still have their job (which 99 percent of government employees do), their lives are pretty much untouched by the economic tragedy around us.
Ah – I see – so “most Democrats” are morons and work at menial jobs – like Black Americans and Hispanic Americans and poor White Americans huh Wayne? The facts: At the University of Chicago they did a study of IQ among conservatives and liberals that self-identified as same.
Conservative IQs were on average 17 points lower than liberals’. Hmmm. But the real truth is that Wayne is an ignorant racist who probably has a few minority friends he can point to as proof he isn’t. Typical right wing caca de toro. He uses the term punch the clock as code for the unfortunate.
Most of Wayne’s friends are Republican he tells us. Well, I’ll be damned! They work for themselves; they work on commission (see encyclopedia sales, car sales, insurance scam sales, brokers) they think the USA is like GREECE?
Yes, that is what they think. They are morons-and they speak from fear and from avarice. Most of them have never been to Greece. The American GDP – even today is what – 1,000 times larger than Greece? Does Wayne know anything about economics? No. Not one thing. He’s a scam artist like most of his kind. And, he is worried his buddies or he will lose their E ticket to the US Treasury if things get any worse, or God Forbid, that we give those time-clock punching Democrats some decent health care, or a leg up when they can’t pay their $900 a month utility bills.
So there you have it. The economic ignorance gap explained. Democrats and those slightly to the left – who far outnumber Republicans in the “rich as Croesus category know very well why the nation is faltering – not failing. As the biggest economy on earth – and the most spoiled – including all of us – we control far more than Wayne suggests. Do yourself a favor Wayne – check out the GDP of China – the nation you love to take cheap shots at – compare it to America’s – not even close.
“When you want to fix a clogged drain, you don’t call an economist; you call a plumber. When you want to solve a murder, call a police detective. Put out a fire? Call a fireman. You want to learn math? Call a teacher. You want bread? Call a baker.” Wayne pontificates. – But when you want to solve a deeply complex multinational problem due to what has become almost a single world economy – you damn well better call on economists and honest bankers – if you can find one.
Wayne then begins the dirty stuff.
He calls the President a “community organizer” as if being a loud mouthed neo-Nazi is somehow better. Anyone should be proud to be a person who helps members of his community having a tough time living in such a greedy world. But Wayne here sneers at these “do-gooders” even though those do-gooders keep the mobs away from his door.
What Wayne means to say is that people who live a government world (his moronic term) know quite a lot about economics – they have to struggle with its truths all the while. They know far more about risks than any two-bit plumber or baker. They know how to feed five kids on 80 bucks a week, not 80 bucks a night like Wayne. Most people in really small businesses don’t have any idea what true poverty and no future is about – and by the way – “small business” as defined by the Government of the United States includes all businesses earning as much as $8 Billion or more – is that small to you?
Wayne – people vote for Obama because they know that even if THEY have a decent pension – and your lie that claims the basic wage earner has a $100 thousand dollar per year pension is grotesque…People who vote for Obama and his like voted for him and will vote for him because they do not WORSHIP money and Gucci bags. They love their fellow man – they follow – far more often that people like you – the word of God, whichever God they choose.
Wayne on the other hand follows the “code of silence and the code of determined prevarication”.
He lies to the majority to excuse the excess of his “kind” – but of course Wayne is not wealthy himself, nor does he have contacts with mentally competent wealthy men or women. They too want a better life for the poorest among us – and they know full well that “the private sector” is not going to be able to provide that all that time. And in times like this – the government – which is ALL the people in this nation together – must step in and help.
Read what this absolute cretin says about economist Paul Krugman: The same goes for members of the media. New York Times columnist and economist Paul Krugman is Exhibit A. Paul Krugman — like most government employees — thinks the answer to the bankruptcy of America due to binge spending by government, is more binge spending by government. They give you Nobel Prizes for that? What’s the category: delusion? Like Krugman, the economic knowledge of Obama’s supporters comes from books. Unfortunately, the books were written by Karl Marx.
I’d bet dollars to donuts to Wayne has never read a thing by Karl Marx, or Keynes, or Krugman, nor anyone with a multifaceted thought. He’s a small-minded thug and he proves it with his undeserved patronizing attitude – his misuse of elementary English, and his all-too-evident foolishness.
Yes, Wayne is “struggling in Obama’s America”. Of course he is. He’s the kind of man that no one trusts – not even those that recompense him to spread his lies and wretched lack of reason.
Wayne is the kind of moron that trots out every exhausted platitude of the neo-Nazi right he can think of – and he will, of course, tell you that Hitler was a socialist. He’s that dumb. He doesn’t realize that Hitler used the premise and the promise of social good to cover his tracks as a lunatic dictatorial Satanist.
Yes, old Wayne trots it out alright. There’s the Wisconsin flag seller who went bankrupt because of Obama! He worries that Bible salesman will go bankrupt.
He’s senseless really – he believes that the President has this much control? No, of course not – he’s not insane, not stupid, none of that – Wayne is simply evil, pure evil and works for malevolent people who seek the same goals – total control over the masses and unheard of personal wealth.
He moans that the NFL can’t fill stadiums anymore. Of course the idiot would worry – because one must spend thousands just for a mediocre seat in any pro stadium – (named after a corporation of course) and hundreds a year just to park! It’s the greed of the owners and the now-matching greed of the players that have done this – not Barack Obama.
Then Wayne moans about US manufacturing going down the crapper. Gee – whose fault is that – Yours Wayne – your fault and people like you who would rather ship those manufacturing jobs to Asia and Central America rather than pay a living wage here in America? You did that – you and your wannabee cronies – Men like Willard Romney. It was you and your kind that convinced those idiot politicians to give you a tax break to do so.
Let’s again quote Wayne here – the most pathetic lines he wrote: “Anyone who makes a living by selling something, anything at all, is in deep trouble. They see an ever worsening disaster under Obama — up close and personal. They fear for the survival of their businesses and they are terrified for the future of America. These are the people we ought to be listening to. The private sector is in distress. We see and feel this Obama Great Depression deepening.”
You bet they are scared – because the game is up Wayne. The greed has to stop. Evenhandedness must prevail. It took only a little more than a decade- under largely Republican control – to bring the nation to her knees. The measure? When did being a millionaire stop and the Billionaire thing start? – That is one thousand million dollars Wayne! Not too long ago Wayne – somewhere around the time pricks like Dick Cheney began his career in “public service” never earning more than a couple hundred thousand bucks and one of those pensions you loathe so much. Then, all of a sudden – he earned almost half a billion dollars from companies he had no knowledge to run. Why Wayne – why?
Let me give you a hint about that. The billionaire stuff started when it was revealed that Bill Gates – who gives most of his money away – and Warren Buffet were then Billionaires. Other so-called small and large “businessmen” decided that they too deserved to be billionaires. Then it took wing and a life of its own – and even the guys who stroll around the floor at New York Stock exchange just had to be billionaires as well! That’s how it happened.
Yes Wayne is a salesman alright – and he should be frightened because he’s the worst kind of spurious salesman – a whore to the devil and to a yearned-for sack of gold he’ll never have unless he inherits or steals it.
