Free Markets, Free People

Apparently Timothy Geithner isn’t the financial “rock star” he was touted to be if his handling of the Asian crisis 10 years ago is any indication.

While Obama may have “inherited” the financial problems, the bear market is all his.

Speaking of lay-offs, this isn’t going to make our jet jocks feel very secure.

The new slogan of the Democrats – never let a good crisis go to waste.  So this is a “good” crisis?

Take a look at this page and tell me where are the promised tax money from rich folks is going to come from.

If you don’t believe government is contemplating some pretty heavy care rationing when and if they get control, read this little beauty carefully.

Even George McGovern finds the pending card check legislation desired by unions to be “fundamentally wrong” and undemocratic.

Grey wolves “delisted” from endangered species list.

No time for Gordon Brown, but plenty of time for Brad Pitt.  Wonder if Pitt got a 25 volume DVD set too?

Is Obama preparing the way for a massive defense spending cut?

George W. Obama?

Even Paul Krugman is getting a little antsy about the apparent lack of focus of the Obama administration on the financial crisis.

It appears Hugo Chavez recognizes a kindred spirit when he sees one.

The Senate is one vote short of passing the omnibus spending bill with 9,000 earmarks.  All I wonder is which Republican will cave first?

  • So the bear market that Ronald Reagan had in 1981 and 1982 was not thanks to  Carter’s, but Reagan’s own doing.  That wasn’t the story at the time.   This stock market collapse has been predicted since late last year (and by some like Peter Schiff for years — my blog today talks about the failure of the economic punditry class).  This collapse isn’t Democratic or Republican, but a failure of America’s culture and approach to economic policy over the last few decades — I’ve noted this as the failure of Reaganism.  The decline can no longer be denied or mocked and ridiculed (well, you can, but it now rings a bit hollow).

    • failure of Reaganism

      Thank goodness we’re not using government debt as a policy anymore! Obama’s new polices have saved us!
