Poor old Republicans!
David Brooks gave them a tiny spotlight this morning on ABC’s ‘This Week’ with George Stephanopoulos – video included:
That the tiny spotlight might lead to their facing reality (instead of waving the glowy Reagan flag of how they wish he’d been) is a dim possibility for the proud and arrogant Republican Party.
Yet it is difficult to avert a downward spiral when you refuse honest measurement or admit the true path of your trajectory.
And the wacky 3-D glasses of party partisanship further distort issues.
Well, if the GOP needs it, several manufacturers bottle ginkgo biloba for memory loss, even of the most virulent politically expedient variety.
If I were one of the GOP, I’d take a minimum of 3 bottles’ worth of ginko biloba before even thinking of reading the next Reagan biography make-over or dream-infested manifesto of Reaganomics.
But that’s only what I would do – especially since it’s difficult to believe that Ronald Reagan or his ghost can help them now.

How much failure and loss can GOP economic policies induce until none of their pet theories or their Reagan worship are given a moment’s notice?
In Astrologese, we could say:
Action is demanded: the big picture and a certain course of action must be followed; very little option to do otherwise.
To quickly ‘get the lead out’, ignore Republican neocon political thespianisms (including that gasbag of the radio) concerning the economy, and Implement.
And if I run into my senator or congressman on Main Street, I’ll be sure to ask why they crapped their pants with haste over the banker bailout bill with its Capitol Hill Theater matinees and evening performances, but for the American worker they mumblingly waste our time, our dime, and any shred of credibility they have left in their accounts at the We-The-People Bank of America.
And to think: we PAY them rather generously for their dramatic stalls, insidious propaganda, and photo-ops.
If Wall Street-loving, Reagan-idolizing Republicans and Democrats knew how low their credit ratings are with the American people right now, they wouldn’t advertise their obvious lack of concern about our livelihoods when it comes to Main Street…they’d stop grandstanding and obstructing the president”s bill and send some financial relief for the real-world folks who do the real-world jobs politicians don’t want to do.
Did you think George Bush meant that average folks should join in by buying a home in his ‘Ownership Society’ when he touted the misleading phrase during the early days of his residency? (not a typo.)
Well, funny thing.
Turns out Bush was pointing to just such a time as the current financial collapse of our real economy with financiers poised to go on shopping sprees and take over ownership of banks and other industries as they further their control of the real economy in order to create a class of working poor their thumbs are itching to control.
But if you’re feelin’ puny, you may wish to skip economics professor Michel Chossudovsky’s article, ‘The Great Depression of the 21st Century: Collapse of the Real Economy.
However, if you’re madder than a wet hen over this political charade for the sake of a new economic and political world order, you’d be better off if you attempt reading it, if you haven’t.
Some of Chossudovsky’s words are as good a description of what astrologers have been saying to describe transforming Pluto’s journey through the sign of Capricorn as you’re likely to find anywhere.
Pluto returns to Capricorn in time for the turkey of Thanksgiving Day. And if turkey Bush pardons the turkey, an always-ridiculous annual ritual at the White House, we can all think of his touted ‘Ownership Society’ and know which of his Wall Street and banking pals will be doing all the owning – and how Bush knew it from the start.
Chossudovsky explains how the *Reagan-Thatcher era, the earlier phase of the 1980s, displaced and destroyed family farms, local and regional enterprises, and small businesses.
Then the merger-acquisition phase occurred in the 1990s under Bill Clinton, and we all know about NAFTA’s role in dissolving America’s work environment. “Thanks,”Bill and Hill. Al Gore, where were you when the American worker needed you?
And his book, ‘The Globalisation of Poverty and the New World Order’ is a perfect description of Pluto-Chiron’s oppressive issues: corporatism, racism, women’s rights, violence, etc.
See? That’s one of the reasons I say we have a one-party system in the US – the haves against the have-nots. But read his article, if you get a chance. There is some hope, however difficult to implement it may be.
Yet with president-elect Barack Obama sending one of the architects of the financial collapse to represent him at the G20 Summit (Jim Leach, who co-sponsored 1999′s Gramm-Leach-Bliley Financial Services Modernization Act – FSMA), a promising start for his presidency’s economic programs looks more like slave labor on the way…possibly disguised as ‘public works programs.’
Now either THAT would be ironic, or I don’t know irony when I see it. Do you?
Nothing here on Thatcher, but you may wish to check out the sidebar column of Pages for the Reaganomics Eclipse, if you haven’t. Its degree links to the natal Ascendant of George W. Bush.
Making global the plundering by the US government, Reaganism and Bushism are twins of greed and corruption uniting the 80s with the New Millennium.
As the US has propped up bloody dictators (Pinochet, The Shah, Apartheid, Contras, Marcos, to name a few) in order to stroke their egos, enrich them, and assure their assistance in the pillaging of their own people, our own nation’s population and the future of our children have fallen by the wayside in the march toward one world government.
Read Professor of Political Science, David Michael Green’s article which gives an overview of what voodoo economics have done here in America and what the world crime syndicate (Cupido in an astrology chart!) has been up to in the last few decades:
which covers in brief what’s been goin’ on. It isn’t pretty but must be brought into the collective consciousness…this is one of America’s many shadows which we have failed to deal with and now look where we are…nowhere soon.
This regressive political movement is somewhat addressed by my Page concerning the Reaganonmics Eclipse of July 30, 1981 which occurred upon George Bush’s natal Ascendant! (see sidebar for this alarming synchronicity.
As you know, our solar system contains two ‘societal planets’ which time our sociopolitical-economic cycle and they begin their new cycle approximately every 20 years–Jupiter (expansion) and Saturn (restriction.)
They met up for a new cycle on May 28, 2000, and the DOW’s historic high on Jan 13, 2000 (11,528.40) preceeded this Great Conjunction–the NASDAQ followed with its high on March 10, 2000 (5,048 pts.)
That the DOW’s historic high was in Jan 2000 actually puts in at the tail end of the last conj of Jupiter-Saturn–three meetings: Dec 31, 1980; March 3, 1981; and July 24, 1981 from 4–10 degrees of Libra, sign of balance and fairness. Yuh. And if you think Wall Street gentry don’t know about astrological cycles and consult them, think again.
As dot com investors know, by the end of 2000, the NASDAQ was down 39%, its worst year ever, and the DOW was down 6% for the year–its worst since…wait for it…1981.
The Great Conjunction of May 2000 in Taurus, one of the ‘money signs’, was squared by disruptive Uranus so we have:
Jupiter/Saturn = Uranus: terribly upset with the status of things; forceful change of direction which can upset many dimensions of life; making great efforts; emotional tensions; sudden change in circumstances; Damage to a Building (sounds like 9/11 to me esp considering the conj of Pluto and Chiron, the plutocratic duo of corporatism, oppression, disenfranchisement, racism, and primal violence, on Dec 30, 1999. So this is how the New Millennium began, world.)
The State united with Corporatism = fascism, another -ism of the Pluto/Chiron variety. And even stronger than their conj is their parallel in mid-August 2004.
Yes, redistribution of wealth is Reagan’s real legacy. That George Bush has followed suit and extended the practice to the global community makes the term ‘kleptocracy’ part of his fascist, corporate legacy as well with the world banking system in on the bargain and its claws in the pie–the pie of our children and our children’s children.
Remember this: “Free trade raises all boats”? Sounds as hilarious as the Titanic’s boasts before it sailed, doesn’t it?
Think I’ll mosey to Prof. Green’s site now to see what antidote might exist–because it’s sickening what they’ve done with our America.
midpoint picture: Tyl; Ebertin.
