Your response was exactly what I was anticipating, when I dropped my rather cryptic comment.

Certainly, the goal here... the one overarching idea, as you call it... is not simply money, but rather it is the increase of governmental control, of which money is merely a part, albeit a major part.

The stated goals, as well as the concept of governmental omnipotence, are shown to be lies at every turn. Global cooling becomes global warming becmes (whoops) climate change. Banks are bailed out because they.... oops Car companies are bailed out becase they... oops homeowners are bailed out because they are the locus of the central problem in the financial world.

It doesn’t take a great deal to figure out based on the pattern before us, that these guys are just vamping, rather like what we see of the Wizard of Oz, after Toto pulls the curtain back.

The real goal, obviously, is to maintain the illusion of governmental omnipotence, which is of course helpful in the maintainance and indeed the expansion, of governmental control... and that we mere mortals pay no attention to that man behind the curtain over there, lest we with Reagan say "Government isn’t the solution, government is the problem."

The hope I have at this point is that the trust level for governmental solutions will decrease as a result of the Democrat party’s screwups... mostly their own over- relience on government, but their corruption, as well... Of course one has to rely on Providence that we’ll survive long enough to see them ushered out of office, too.

That day coming, however, requries we continually beat the drum over these failures, as they appear. We know damned well the Dinosaurs aren’t going to be saying anything about them.

I love that retro surf music. Interestingly (at least to me) I used to be employed in the oilfeild in oil and natural gas measurement. (measuring the amount of fluids and gas passing through a pipeline.

We used what was called an orifice meter which was pioneered by my old boss Wood Braizelle. The gas passed through a orifice of known size and the out put became a cone of high pressure called the VENA CONTRACTA, The Vena Cava was the rest of the flow. By measuring the differential in pressures you could accurately measure the volume of gas passing through the pipe.
