Atlas Shrugged

WC Varones has a 9 January 2009 post which refers to a WSJ article by Stephen Moore. I underlined WCV's excerpted lines when reading it, link:

I add, "Finally, and out of desperation, the politicians come to the heroic businessman John Galt (who has resisted their assault on capitalism) and beg him to help them get the economy back on track". Read what Detroit's Mark Douglas said, my 5 January 2009 post, link:

It always devolves to a center of power (think Rome)... which rarely works (inherently unstable)... in this giant nation near impossible.

Now we have a new "geeky smart" team taking the reins in DC... oh sure if we just run the econ/gov machine a little more smartly everything will pick UP!

I guess the question is how much more tribute does DC/Rome demand so the bankers/automks/states/etc can keep rolling along?

It took a long time to get to this state and will take a long time to get out again...

The wheels are already turning to justify the bailout of state and local governments. Look at CA and NY with their huge congressional delegations and even bigger state debts.

They are justifying this by saying that saving local gov jobs provides stable employment. When I think of stable employment, I think of having government employees work more with what horses leave behind. Or is it that they remind me of horses behinds.

Never mind.
