PostHeaderIcon How Soon We Forget

A lesson never to be forgotten?

Everybody knows you can’t spend yourself rich, anymore than you can drink yourself sober.

They used to sir. Back when common sense still counted. You may have brought the USSR to its knees, old friend; but the Marxists in academia now have our children down on theirs, worshiping the Obamessiah, and cursing you. History belongs not to those who created it; but to those who write the textbooks. Alas, your lifelong totalitarian nemesis owns that franchise, and they have not been kind to you.

They have numbed the minds of your posterity into a nation of helpless sheeple, sir, who haven’t a clue that they are being fleeced. Indeed, they are begging to be shorn… and I don’t know whether I want to be despondent or angry about it. It looks like I am going to have to decide soon, for this trend is unsustainable. ◄Dave►

  • Reagan is no economic hero as far as I’m concerned, but he talked the talk pretty well, and I’ll give him this: He was the last of the republican presidents with the balls to call for spending cuts before tax cuts when we had a deficit.

    I’m not feeling emotional about the state of the country. I’m too busy being fascinated. It is a colossal insight into the gestalt of society, predator/prey economics, and the depths to which men will stoop. I didn’t like the track we were on anyway, and I can’t wait to see how it all ends.

    I am not a fan of any interference in the economy by the government; but Keynesian economics being what it is, I sure appreciated Reagan’s understanding of its fallacies. I suppose one would have had to try to do business in the Carter years to truly appreciate the blessing of Reaganomics.

    It would also help if the sheeple understood that all taxes are paid by consumers, no matter how the government tries to make it look like they are only paid by the rich. Government funded jobs do nothing to grow the economy, precisely because government workers effectively pay no taxes, and everyone else is being taxed to pay their wages. A government job is one step above welfare, but just barely. ◄Dave►
