I needed some amusement this afternoon

It’s been one of those days, you see, so I decided to scroll through a thread on Michelle Malkin’s blog. Whenever I’m the mood for cynical comments that I disagree with greater than 85% of the time (which is to say, I agree with Free Market Economics) this is where I go. Sure, there are other, even battier blogs to amuse myself with, but her commenters have a certain charm, you see…

And the funny part about this particular post & thread is about how people should stop paying their mortgages because of the current hullabaloo. There’s enough moral righteousness on this thread to keep me high for a week. I really do feel that people who cannot be responsible should suffer the consequences, but consistently attempting to tie free market economics to neocons is fucking wrong.

I’m too delerious and disheartened to go into a diatribe about how our economy has been based upon debt (and too much of anything is bad for you) and how the baby boomers ruined everything (I love my parents, even still) or about how the fact that we’re trying to maintain a GDP with a Service-Based Economy that produces very little of its own goods. Or that we’ve been sliding this way, quickly, for 60+ years. Or that the government has always been fishy about fiscal affairs out money since its earliest days (remember Alexander Hamilton?).
