Liberal


Now, after cleaning out our champagne glasses, I want to say to my fellow bloggers – we did it!

Bush came to his office 6 years ago when blogosphere was virtually non-existing. We, the people, lost badly then and our voices were muted. Two years ago, when blogosphere was still in its infancy – and we lost again. Now, when we are finally strong and we can fight – we did it!

Millions of people lined out this past tuesday to kick G.W. Bush into his stupid fat ass. I saw him yesterday on TV and his ass was swelling and it was red like a tomato. Not even a baboon has it so bad.

Me, and a million of my fellow bloggers, we give and accept congratulations for the great job we did for this country and its people.

Congratulations!

Very impressive article on the current state of our economy. Simple and informative.

Gutierrez, secretary of commerce, is bullying China that protectionist measures will damage China much more than United States. Those measures could be applied if trade deficit is not reduced. 

I'm sorry, Gutierrez, it's China who holds us by the balls, not vice versa. If tariffs are introduced, it's our economy that will slump, not Chineese. It will be 1973 in best case, 1929 in worst case. Let see the simple sequence of events.

The lack of cheap import will trigger inflation, which will make Bernanke to go ballistic and raise rates over 6%, which will just destroy the housing market at current prices. During the slide back to 1995 real estate prices all the construction business will flop, personal consumption decrease by huge amounts and stock market retreat back to 2002. The bad investment climate will stop capital inflows and make us live by what we earn. The borrowing spree will stop and both corporate and personal finances will force us to dramatically reduce the consumption. In other words, the quality of life will decrease a lot. You will see unemployment, crime, drugs and rock'n'roll all around.

And one of the main problems is the lack of brains in Washington, from the president Bush himself, who is a total idiot to the last Gutierrez.

Good article about Bernanke and economic policies here, just to keep a reference

Very nice this one:

I would guess it didn’t exactly represent a profile in courage for the vice president to wander over there to the F-word network for a sit down with Brit Hume. I mean, that’s a little like Bonnie interviewing Clyde, ain’t it?

Nice summary here.

It was a very good speech, I was pleased to hear it. But at the end it’s all bullshit. He didn’t mean it.

  • He didn’t mean it. He has no brain to write even a small part of this speech. He saw it for the first time today morning, he read it, he forgot it
  • He didn’t mean it. He’s a natural lier, his tools are hidden, he takes away our dignity, our liberty and our money.

There is a better way

This article tells the story that about 50% of americans are supporting being wiretapped in order to fight terrorism (also see here). Well, should we wonder? Yes at once, but if we remember that germans voted for Hitler, palestinians chose Hamas and russians embraced the bloody revolution, we should painfully accept that in public opinion war is often taking hand over peace, hate over love and fight over discussion. Even so-called “spiritual” people are often full of hate to anyone not belonging to their church.

Do I mean that the human is weak and angry by his nature? Not necessary so. But it seems that the human nature has the natural desire to follow the strong rather than the right. It was probably the way of survival looking millions years back. If the new chief killed the old one from behind, was it smart to keep faith to the fallen leader or to join the new one? That’s what our fathers always did, they followed the strong rather than the good.

So how to stick to our principles? The only way is to make those principles to look as the strength, not the weakness. The liberty and the democracy must be the strong words, and they should mean what they mean. And we need the new leader who makes those words to means what they mean. When Bush says liberty, he means slavery, when he says democracy he means the rule of republicans, when he says Constitution he means just a goddamned piece of paper. This man is killing America. We must get rid of him – the sooner the better.
