Handicapping the race... of the Handicapped
They say you should never blog drunk. Allow me to retort. Then when shall I ever blog?
A friend recently wrote to me:
"David, a guy work just said to me that the economy is a finite pie. If the some people get more, that leaves less for the rest of us. Is that not the dumbest thing you've ever heard?"
Well, it's pretty dumb. Dumbest? I don't know. Whenever you are have to compare the economy to baked goods, you are in trouble. Hillary Clinton once said, "The market knows everything about price and nothing about value." That was really dumb too. My friend's co-worker can be excused. We are going to assume that he hasn't been prepped for public "leadership" his whole life. To Cankles Clinton, on the other hand, I cannot be so kind.
Value determines price in the market. Actors enter the market with rankings of value in their head. These rankings are completely subjective. They are determined by the ends that the actors want satisfied the most urgently. I know that Billary cannot follow such an easy chain of reasoning, but I hope you can. Due to these value scales, exchanges happen when unequal values are encountered. You want my shirt more than you want $5. I want your $5 more than the shirt I just spilled some wine on. Mainstream economists think you can equate value - make it all mathematical and pretty. Mainstream economists are lunatics. Clearly we have unequal values that just created an exchange that created a price.
Why is this so hard for Cankles to grasp? I don't know. Meanwhile, her fetish friendly husband recently came across my air waves (they're mine!) to tell two whopping lies. In a commercial that is being run for the teenage-killer's re-election campaign, Cigar Bill says:
1. The Republicans want de-regulation
2. De-regulation caused this mess in the first place
Wow. Just wow.
The word "de-regulation" appears to have the same affect on Democrat voters that "islamo-fascist" has on Republicans. It just gets them all worked up like a horny teenager.
What a dupe job. Classic. The priests of the State. You gotta hand it to them. They work the phoney-baloney Left/Right Blue State/Red State paradigm to a tee, don't they? How many of your friends are updating their Facebook status with Obama and Romney support messages? I have one that says he'll de-friend anyone that "Likes" Mitt Romney.
Oh how they divide us over meaningless nonsense.
There was NO deregulation. The Glass-Steagall Act was not repealed. It was "replaced". Replaced by other regulations. There were more regulations in place in 2008 than at ANY TIME IN AMERICAN HISTORY. More money was spent on regulations in 2008 than at ANY TIME IN AMERICAN HISTORY. "De-regulation" is a ridiculous line of argumentation. Stop. Just stop. Come up with something else. Please. You'll appear so much smarter.
Repeal and replace. Hmmm, where have I seen that recently? Any supporters of the guy that's going to get 10 electoral votes if he's lucky want to chime in on that? Anyone? No? I didn't think so.
Which brings me to the next point. To say that a Romney administration would usher in an era of free markets and de-regulation is not just wrong. It's a lie. Cigar Bill knows that Romney has NO intention of any such thing. C'mon Slick Willie. This is the Internet Age. You know, we can look this sh*t up and see how ridiculous you are.
But that's just it, right there. This election is not about us. It's about them. It's about the Establishment. Establishment Murderer A and Establishment I Would Be An Even Bigger Murderer B!!! It's for old, old white people that don't know the differnce between TCP and UDP. It's the end of the Worst Generation. Those ridiculously carb loaders with swollen ankles and bad skin. The uninformed Worst Generation that views politics as some sort of rooting interest. That repeats slogans spoon fed to them as if they were passages of the Scripture.
I prefer 4 more years of Establishment A to 8 more years of Establishment B. If a gun is to my head. Otherwise, I'll pass. Thanks.
