I POSTED THIS BEFORE, BUT IT'S WORTH REPEATING:
- CLASS WARFARE IS A NEGATIVE AND DESTRUCTIVE STRATEGY THAT PITS ONE SEGMENT OF SOCIETY AGAINST ANOTHER AND DENIGRATES PRIVATE, PERSONAL INVESTMENT AS IT SEEKS TO ELEVATES THE PUBLIC SECTOR.
- THE CONSTANT ATTACKS OBAMA AND HIS LEFTIST COMRADES WAGED AGAINST THE FREE MARKET, AND HIS CONSTANT LITANY OF DIRE WARNINGS SCARED THE MARKETS - PREVENTING SOUND INVESTMENT, AND PREVENTED REAL REFORM AND THUS CREATED THIS DOUBLE DIP.
NOW DO THE RIGHT THING TO HELP US END THIS ECONOMIC MISERY: RESIGN!
ROBERT HEINLEIN AGREES:
VIA INSTAPUNDIT, THE AMAZON SHILL.
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as “bad luck.”
AMAZING UPDATE: EZRA KLEIN INADVERTENTLY QUOTES HEINLEIN RIGHT ON CUE!:
Whatever weak recovery we might have hoped for is being hindered by global commodity prices, consumer deleveraging, fears of flagging demand in emerging markets, earthquakes in Asia, and much more. Globally, it’s been an almost uninterrupted run of crises and bad luck.
