Some random thoughts about the state of the nation and the actions of the government:
- The government seems intent on being Big Brother in all things, but ends up being Big Bumbler instead... witness FEMA, et all.
- The economy is heading toward a hard recession whether the data shows it now or not... and the Federal Reserve is the trigger mechanism.
- Oil prices are annoying, but the market will adjust... just like it did centuries ago when tulip bulbs reached astronomical prices... if the government will just step out of the way and let market forces work on the supply side, too.
- Free markets seem to be supported by the government for corporations, but not individuals (tip of the hat to Dick Pasky)... can outsource work, but can't buy prescriptions from Canada, respectively.
