I generally blog more about politics than I have recently. But I'm really busy here. And maybe being in Moscow makes me more ambivalent about what happens way over there to you poor suckers. I'm actually pretty happy about all the gridlock in the Government. I hope nothing gets done for awhile. Let's watch the United States continue to function while our Government proclaims itself the only entity able to save us from our greedy, profligate, and impotent selves. I'd like to see our nation climb out of our economic malaise without any more "help" from the Government.
I'm very disturbed about President Obama's frequent references to the higher value of public over private work. If I had the time, I'd find all his quotes and print them -- maybe another post. But he obviously values the non-profit and public kinds of work over the private. This is a ridiculous and dangerous belief system as it undermines the meritocratic and innovative nature of our capitalist system in favor of a bloated and politically driven bureaucratic system. Bleeecccchhhhh.
Get thee behind me, Government.
