Quote of the Day

Nassim Nicholas Taleb said…

“Obama did exactly the opposite of what should have been done… He surrounded himself with people who exacerbated the problem. You have a person who has cancer and instead of removing the cancer, you give him tranquilizers. When you give tranquilizers to a cancer patient, they feel better but the cancer gets worse… Total debt is higher than it was in 2008 and unemployment is worse.”

    So Summers has left the sinking ship so he does not get any blame for November but will be welcomed by Wall Street.
    However Geithner is still in place and can only cause more problems.
    Axelrod is leaving to go to Chicago to mastermind Obama’s case for re-election.
    We all wish him well in getting back to his desired political pals.

    In November the American people have the chance to stop this nonsense.

    I think they are bright enough to do so.

    The solution is usually to trust the people.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
