Seems the rich are paying to support the people who then impose myths on them.

So they give more money. Like some sort of strange
false-reality/cash mutually reinforcement cycle.

Because the powerlusters in the GOP need all their base to be angry so

that they don't learn anything. Angry people don't cede any territory. GOP need angry followers so they will follow the GOP's false narrative & delusions so they will vote for the rich to take more territory (income) from the middle class, the working class and the poor.

Is Romney's decision to exclude millions from 'middle income' to cause anxiety

in the middle class so that they vote GOP to try and get back into the herd? Why else would Romney say middle income is $200,000 to $250,000. Cause Americans want to be part of the same group that includes the middle class at the very least.... they want to be part of the american success story.

That should be "neo-goon".

Oh my god - Wolfowitz is on CNN right now. Who dug him up?

This guy who made the anti-islamic film was obviously a psychopath

with many aliases. Psychopaths love to diminish people's lives and see people "fall". What is to stop some other psychopaths from creating more hatefull propaganda, resulting in deaths around the world, to please themselves?

You know the money the rich are losing, by not allowing a middle class

in the USA enough wealth to buy products, is more than made up for by the right wing business model they will impose on the world and newly emerging economies. They are willing to give up consumer driven economy in the USA if it means they will never have to pay good wages to the people of the world. More profit in it for them in the long haul.

If anger makes them prone to being unrealistic..no wonder they get so

whipped up by GOP fear and lies. Because they react with anger they keep their territory intact (their world view) and never see the shades of grey. It is said that with sadness one perceives the world or oneself is not perfect, accepts the loss, and adjusts one's thinking. Perhaps Southerners have had to suppress their sadness to get through tough times in history with fight (anger) instead. Still suppression of any important emotions is not appropriate for this modern era. It is an old time coping skill.

*Edited to add: I don't know if I should be using the word 'suppression' rather than 'sublimation'.
