wtf?!? … pardon me sean?

baggers and birthers by hip is everythingLast night I happened to catch a few minutes of some Hannity the manatee clips, and he was, as usual, lamenting the fact that many Americans want to be “progressive” and “move forward” … and also, as usual, he and his word salad spewing, ideologically driven, brain dead guests were going on and on about 1: how “everything” was Obama and his liberal minions fault, and 2: how everything would be better if everyone just let the GOP and their oligarchic puppet masters just run the show, thereby ensuring continued “American Exceptionalism” …
Now I’m not so sure that the Dems have all the answers, but what I am sure of is that I am really really sick of hearing the same fact free blather, bloviating, fear mongering and bullshit that Sean, Billo the clown, Greta van Cesspool, Faux and Friend’s 2 idiots and a blonde’, ‘the Five’,  and the rest of their idiot pals keep espousing day after freaking day …
so… a few facts for Sean and his gang to ponder …

Dear Sean;
Since 1980 America has dropped in standing in significant ways, swinging back to a ‘trickle down Robber Baron’ economy from a ‘NEW DEAL demand economy’ and to far less progressive (and fair) taxes …
The middle class is disappearing faster than free food at a Rush Limpballs/Chris Christie meeting …
The rise of religious fundamentalism is now seen by many on the right as ‘the future of ‘Murica’ (such a success in the Islamic world right?) …
A staggering 90% drop in unions …
Were #1 in wages, now 15th ( minimum wages are now half of 1965 value in constant dollars) …
Were #1 In % of population with college degrees to 13th …
Went from the #1 Creditor nation to the largest DEBTOR nation on mother earth ( just under Reagan) …
Were #1 in education, are now 25th …gop taking you back by hip is everything
31st in internet speed, 21st in railroads, 14th in electric grid coverage (with the highest rate of brown outs of all developed nations) …
Were #1 in infrastructure, are now 25th (spent 11% of GDP under Ike on infrastructure now 2.5%, or 1/3 as much as other developed countries.)
Were #1 in healthcare , now 37th, with twice the cost of any other ‘developed’ country …
Were #1 in MFG … now have lost 80% of private industry, 30 million job outsourced.182K factories closed, 60,000 under Bush alone. MFG has highest economic multiplier …
The only nation w/o national industrialization plan, export rebates, anti outsourcing regulations, and interest free loans for MFGs.
Were #1 In High tech, under Bush lost 50% of high tech and now import more high tech than is exported …
Only developed nation without a national healthcare for everyone, and yet Americans pay twice as much, don’t cover everyone and have some of the worst “outcome rates” on the planet …
51st in life expectancy and infant mortality …
Most of what is exported now is raw materials, like any 3rd world country …
Gasoline is the number on export, while importing computers …
The EU exports 50% more than the USA and it’s not raw materials or food, but high labor value MFG goods, like Japan…
Have not produced a commercial ship in more than 30 years …
Even the friggin’ cruise ships are made in the EU, where wages are more than double those in the USA …
donald gasbags trump by hip is everythingFirst in Murders, % of population in prison. 91st in income distribution …
51st in infant mortality and life expectancy …
6th in auto production, (in per capita ½ of even IRAN) ….
27th in middleclass wealth …
But do spend more on defense than all other nations combined …
A terrible economic multiplier, and have trade deficits larger than all other countries combined … from a surplus in 1976 …
