We, really, are screwed.

Postby Mad Howler » Wed Jun 19, 2013 12:58 am

The article linked to below relates to a thought that I thought I heard while I was listening to NPR's Market Place a week or so ago.
I was wrong, MP was not going toward this thought.
Still, I had this thought and the link below shows how hard it is to keep up with the Milton troit.

This seems very wrong.

Thoughtful post...

From the link:
But the notion of acquiring a stake in someone’s future earnings is not unprecedented. In professional poker, for instance, players often raise money from investors who then pocket a chunk of any winnings.


Just another example of how the ways of professional gambling can lead to a successful and more fulfilling life.

Interesting.
Did you mean the economy of the powers that be?
Ya know, the ones we have been taught to help at all costs and not hold accountable?
Even Reagan held some folks accountable in the fallout of the S&L debacle.
'Tis dependable governance a historic notion?
It has been suggested to me that the populi of our nation would not be down with the truth.
I do not know this to be true or false,
But truth is becoming ever more evident.
It seems a tough time for our nation,
I expect we will find a hard fought solution as has happened in the past.

But, that is just my expectation.
