Whining conservatives

If I have to listen to one more whining, crying, spoiled-brat conservative lament that we're in a class war; that the new administration is conducting reconnaissance on the innocent upper-class (characterized as those who have benevolently and lovingly spread their wealth to all those below them), I may have to petition for the return of the Bastille and the good old-fashioned guillotine.

Everywhere one looks there is proof of the outlandish greed that has brought this economy to its knees - from hedge-fund managers to bankers to mortgage lenders to the homeowners who used their homes like cash registers, to just about everyone from one end to other on Wall Street.

It was like a perfect storm of thievery, enabled by the ex-administration in Washington.

Where did this childishness come from, this un-American viewpoint and this free ride mentality? What stupid pill did any American take that convinced them the Reagan (or the Bush version) trickle-down theory of financial debauchery would be beneficial or even work?

How could it make sense to give the top rungs of the ladder to economic wealth in this country all the opportunity, lower taxes with almost no regulation or oversight, thinking the rest of us would somehow appreciate the scraps that were supposed to fall downward?

Let me answer that. They didn't think it would work. It was a ruse, perpetuated by a few, but ironically supported by all those yelling the loudest now.

You cannot be the ones who created the problems in the first place with your misplaced ideologies, your avarice and selfishness, and in good conscience yell "socialism" and whine about the current administration's efforts.

If you don't like the solutions being formulated, then quit putting Democrats continually in the position of having to correct your mistakes by reining in your greed (and honest to God, the list is too long to itemize here), fixing everything you broke while in office for eight years (an even longer list) and finding some way to pay for the deficit you rung up and consequently, the cost of the solutions.
