Real Look at Aristocratic Privilege



August 07, 2010 – Comments (9)

Watched Real Housewives of DC. (Send your condolences on the loss of my man card to my master, er fiancee.) 

If that travesty of aristocratic privilege doesn't make you consider alternatives to the current ruling elite, I don't know what will.

Mises, Hayek and Rothbard wrote often about how the aristocrats were the ones who embraced socialism.  They saw in it a way to keep their status intact against the onslaught of capitalists - the vulgar rich of the new age.  And hey, what better way to do that than by offering people free stuff and waging a propaganda war against economic liberty. 

Anyway, just keep that in mind and watch one episode.  Tell me that isn't right on the money with these tools.

You poor guy. Seeing the snobs of the nation's capitol in action must have been vomit inducing. You must really love her.

BTW: Unless you promise to wipe out my part of the national debt I refuse to participate by clicking on your link. No offense. :)

I would rather watch this,

while wondering, "Who the heck can I vote for this time around?"

Not a chance David, but since you no longer have control of the remote, maybe you can fill us all in when something politically important airs on Oprah.

I made a mental note that if there is a Hell, then for me it's probably a never-ending dinner with these ladies.


Pretty much. High school with money, power, and never ending homage to Obama. 


ROFL, tough but fair.

That kind of show is why my wife and I seldom watch TV in the same room.

I'm a PBS, History, Military, Science, Business, and Baseball kind of guy.

She likes Maury, "Where ever" housewives", Oprah, Soaps, "so called reality", and anything to do with "cops".

We meet in the middle on a few, like White Collar, and some of the other "action drama" shows.

It is good to live in the land of plenty where you have a TV in every room and cable with a "zillion" channels.

I don't know why we have so many TVs, but they just seemed to evolve over time. 

I would get rid of some, but the last time I checked, that TV we paid $1,000 for was going for $50.00 on Craig/s List.

Have a great weekend

I saw a special on the national debt once when it was about $8T and was thinking.. hmm I think many Americans would pay an extra tax to pay off thier "share" if they knew thier "share" was capped.

These people just can't stop spending until everyone is broke and then it will be back to robin hood mentality with a whole generation saying "capitalism didn't work, see what happened". Sad.
