My thoughts are short, my hair is long

To paraphrase a song, the name of which I can’t remember…

Anyway, some quick thoughts:

  • Geithner says the economy is in “an early stage” of crisis.  This has been going on for years now – when are we going to be in a late stage?
  • Obama has an Internet watchdog site to catch websites that are critical of him.  I guess I haven’t been critical enough, because no one’s said anything to me.  Should I be offended?  Take me seriously, dammit!
  • The White House seems to have played a major role in overriding the concerns of government budget and financial wonks over the loan guarantee to Solyndra.  I’m not surprised at all.  This president’s entire existence has been about appearance over reality.

I’m off to Amman, Jordan on Thursday so expect to hear from me again on Monday.



About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
