I haven’t been paying that much attention to Elizabeth Warren because a) she’s running in Massachusets and b) the stuff she says is pretty silly. Her claim to fame is a YouTube video where she says that businesses are successful because they can take advantage of the US legal and physical infrastructure and, therefore, should be paying more in taxes to thank Uncle Sam. This seemed silly to me because I don’t know any conservatives who quibble with paying for police, fire, and roads. What we tend not to like paying for are NPR, a $6 billion fact finding commission on owls, or paying over 1,100 postal workers to sit around and do nothing. Stuff like that.
Anyway, she’s a darling of the left now, which just shows how far the left has sunk. Now, she’s claiming she created “much of the intellectual foundation” for the Occupy Wall Street movement.
If Occupy Wall Street, which is marked by incoherence, is her “intellectual” child, well…
