With the sheer amount of time that Obama has been spending on this, I wonder if we are a lot closer to the edge of the cliff and the abyss than we think we are and that the TPTB are doing all they can to hold out for just a little more.

Strange days indeed...

Uber-Tory and official Maggie Thatcher biographer Charles Moore is starting to sound like Tyler Durden


It turns out – as the Left always claims – that a system purporting to advance the many has been perverted in order to enrich the few. The global banking system is an adventure playground for the participants, complete with spongy, health-and-safety approved flooring so that they bounce when they fall off. The role of the rest of us is simply to pay.


I think Moore would have served his readers better by pointing out that things like the free market and capitalism aren’t merely political banners and should have to satisfy some important criteria to be worthy of the name (can we please stop labeling the sub-prime mortgage disaster as a free market folly?).


But whether it’s with the aid of communist apparatchiks or capitalist mega bankers, when the state goes into business for itself, the results and endgame are the same.

It was a very interesting article, but I think Moore misses the point - it's not about left or right, but rather morality and how the sociopaths have taken over the system...  It was the same in the Soviet Union, before Gorbachev came in and simply behaved like a normal human being..

I am a Communist, a convinced Communist! For some that may be a fantasy. But to me it is my main goal. --Mikhail Gorbachev


Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about Glasnost and Perestroika and democracy in the coming years. They are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal changes in the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep.--Mikhail Gorbachev


In October 1917, we parted with the old world, rejecting it once and for all. We are moving toward a new world, a world of Communism. We shall never turn off that road.--Mikhail Gorbachev

Fri, 07/29/2011 - 13:55 | 1505712 A Man without Q...
A Man without Qualities's picture

This is interesting stuff, but my personal experience in the old Soviet Union and in the modern day robber baron land that is Putin's Russia tells me this is not true.  There is a strong element of Russian nationalism, but the country of today is closer to Imperial Russia than any communist model.  Putin himself is more concerned with amassing personal wealth, which is simply massive, and power.  The only crime in modern Russia is to go against Putin and not to give him his cut from any deal.

As for the quotes of Gorbachev, it needs to be considered in the context of who the audience was and how uneasy they were with his reforms.  Gorbachev knew that the Soviet Union was broken, and needed radical restructuring, but the Soviet power elite would not make personal sacrifices necessary.  His concerns proved correct...

So,  you can either hope for the good intentions and moral character of future political leaders or arrange things to keep the size and scope of government limited.  Sort of like they did in the 1780's.

I see this drama as the only chance for a multi-party system we'll have before TSHTF.  As clear as it is that the existing two party (wink) system WILL NEVER get down to any causitive factors, the only thing that can save us is a multi-party system, imo.  Nader and Paul would both pull back the military, for example.  I wish that could be said for the Tea Party, but Viva Tea Party! nonetheless for going where no man has gone before!  Now stand your ground, mo fo's . . .

Maybe, but I'd rather see more daylight between the two parties. The problem with a multi-party system (more popular in Europe) is that sometimes you end up electing a nut-job with 10% of the vote.  Not that we're in a clearly superior position now put you can see how that would allienate the vast majority of people.

Call me risk on for a genuinely democratic end, then.  If the two party system is not taken down, we're definitely FUBAR to our end anyway, imo.

Mr. Prez, if you wanted to tax the rich is there a better way to do that default on the bonds issued to large investors, the Treasury, the Fed, China and Japan?

"Thank for the question Chief. As you know, tax policy can be used to encourage behavior.  We promote green energy by dumping money on ethonol producers and taxing big oil.  Same can be done for buying government debt.  We want to encourage every man, woman, and child to buy govment debt.  Therefore I do not want to default on the debt to push these potential buyers away.  Better tax them on everything else so as they only place they can invest money is gov debt.  Which, uh, is why I will be introducing a rider to the house plan which requires all 401(k) funds to automatically enroll people AND their investments into gov debt.  This will be a new chapter in the SS Trust stability."

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” …….. Senator Barack Obama

Lemme guess, though.  He will threaten to starve Grandma before kicking a bunch of tapeworm bureaucrats out on their asses.

This is good, though.  The man is doing more to discredit the parasitic collectivist ruling class than all free-market intellectual writings of the previous half-century.  He will go down in history as the man who brought us the Tea Party, ended the Fed, and crashed the economy of the entire world.  Nothing shakes people out of their apathy like having their employer bankrupted, getting kicked out of their homes, maybe losing a spouse in the bargain, then being taxed to pay the bank's losses on their home!

I voted for him bc I thought he'd be the next JFK, but turns out Obama's nothin' but a damn Uncle Tom  works for the banks just like Bush & Clinton.

    I wanted a president so black his traffic entourage STILL runs from the cops.
