I am not pro-Socialism if that is what you think. I am pro-common man. There is a difference. We could cut the common man into the wealth equation if we wanted to. But we don’t want that because we are too damn greedy. (Obviously I am not talking about you and me since we are both near broke).
Maybe the spending thingy would work. Maybe it would not. I feel that it would be no better or worse than the Obama method in the long run. It’s a carp shoot, right? To go back to the 70’s and forward and use that as a basis of what works for the economy today is just plain foolish.
I am amazed by the people who claim to know what will work on both sides. It’s pure guesswork.
Here is what I know for sure. The US will never be the power it was in the 20th Century. It’s people will not be able to buy big houses (like mine and yours) any more. (energy prices will skyrocket incredibly, Chicago has no sun, we have no water)
The people in the US were consumptive pigs and they still would be if given the chance. That won’t happen. Can you imagine a world without the Chicago Tribune? It is tough, isn’t it? Can you imagine a world with mostly tiny cars and houses? I expect the big houses in the big cities (like yours) will become 3 flats or worse.
I hear people saying “Drill, drill, drill” as if that is the answer for the future. How stupid of them. The future goes way beyond 50 years. Actually, the future is now. Isn’t it exciting to be living in such a changeful age?
Robert McNamara died today. I wish more people would take note that he campaigned vigorously against war for the last part of his life. Now, he was one smart dude.
Should we listen to smart people any more? (that would make a good topic of discussion.
Meanwhile, the jerks attack Obama for attempting to establish a bridge of discussion with Russia. That’s all they know how to do. They cannot think of anything else to do. They are idiots.
