American conservative opinion writers really do hate our country
Dean Baker exposes the ignorance and hatred of America that comes out of people like Charles Krauthammer, who thinks Federal Treasury bonds are "worthless."
It is time for liberals to tell conservatives to their faces: "Why do you hate our country so much?"
We know conservative politicians in the US hate the people who work in the government, and hate most workers generally. And we know how giddy they are about the prospects of states and local communities declaring bankruptcy. Now, they gleefully tell us that US Treasury bonds are "worthless," when their own financial advisers would still tell them those are the safest investments one can make.
American conservative pundits are either stupid or cynically venal toadies of the international economic elite--or perhaps some of both.
