Debasing The Dialogue (April 14, 2014)

. . .

C          “Too much commentary today is an ‘elbow-jerk’ cut and paste operation.  The citizen who questions whether the government should subsidize and encourage the crimes of the bankers and financial brigands is branded a ‘populist’ and a promoter of ‘populism’.”

D          “Populist notions should be more popular.  The dismissive missives also include a subtext that the person does not really understand economics, business and finance.  Just trust that the emperor is sporting natty attire and doing good and go on your way.”

C          “The blue serge suit hides the red devil.  Time magazine published a fawning piece in February, 1999 about three brigands – Summers, Greenspan and Rubin – and failed to warn the reader let alone even acknowledge the fraud these characters were fomenting on the public.”

D          “At least Yellen is a gal.  God and others know that the boys just do not get economics, business and finance.  They know how to exploit and plunder, but not how to contribute and develop.”

C          “She is doing things the same old way without acknowledging the fundamental problems.”

D          “The same old, same old is getting old.”

. . .

C          “The citizen who questions whether the United States should be aggressively engaged in a variety of wars with no real goal or strategy is dismissed as an ‘isolationist’ and a promoter of ‘isolationism’.”

D          “And of course not a realist or a highly coveted Realpolitiker.  And not someone whose contentions should be considered by reasonable folks.”

C          “Some people want to drop bucks and some people want to drop bombs.”

D          “We dump bucks and bombs.  Some folks are troubled that we finance dictators and then in time attack them.”

. . .

D          “Kill ‘em all and let God sort ‘em out seems to be the policy.”

C          “For some characters, blind ideology controls.  The issue turns on whether God is in the public sector or in the private sector.”

D          “Now there is one for you. God qua contractor.  Miller Act bonds and Davis-Bacon wage scales would drive God batty.  I can see the headline now: ‘God Overbills For Sorting Them Out: Congressional Inquiry Scheduled.’”

. . .

Bumper stickers of the week:

Kill ‘em all and let God sort ‘em out

Keep calm and panic
