All Those “Silly” Fears

Klugman - Dangerous Idiot
Finally admits he was dead wrong on globalism

Paul Klugman, Nobel laureate economist, and deeply entrenched and enriched pundit has always been an arrogant git who loved to lambast and excoriate any critics of globalism – what his school of economics called “Global Capitalism” – as fools and their fears as silly. His position, defended from on high, was that we should not worry about it. He said that unrestricted trade will have, at the very most, only a very minor negative impact on our people’s prosperity and posterity.

Well, that was then and this is now. Klugman has finally admitted that the large number of people whom he thought didn’t understand macroeconomics very well and who were silly were right and he and his fellow Globalist Keynesians were utterly and totally wrong.

To make a long and convoluted story short and – possibly overly – simple: Despite vast numbers of people warning otherwise, Klugman and his fellow travelers both fervently believed that manufacturing moving to Third World nations, e.g., China, would perforce raise wages in those countries, thereby raising the costs of the manufactured goods close enough to those domestically produced so as not to upheave the market greatly. They also grossly underestimated how much and how often corporations would take advantage of both the amazingly low-cost labor pools and tax benefits of such off-shored manufacturing.

In other words, Klugman and Co. arrogantly derided those people who warned them of what globalism would cause and they were completely wrong in doing so. Those “silly” fears turned out to be not so silly after all.

NBC Today

NBC Today
NBC Today

One could probably substitute any channel’s “news” group meeting for NBC’s Today Show and be accurate enough for everyday use. They’ve all, except for Fox News, lost the trust and the viewership of both Americans and the Democrats, and they seem to choose to double-down on Leftist, anti-Trump editorializing instead of correct their behavior.

Ah well; stupid should be painful and they’ve collectively been grossly stupid. They went full-on Libtard – one should never go full-on Libtard 😆 – and threw away the trust and viewership of the American people, leaving stuck with pandering to the Left in order to stay afloat. And the Left? They’re deep into decompensation these days, demanding more extremity, more hate, and more explicit compliance with the “orthodox dogma” of their cult.

Barr’s Congessional Hearing

Barr’s Congressional Hearing

The one image and caption which most aptly sums up Barr’s hearing before the Democrat-controlled the House Judiciary Committee. ↑ And yes, the Dems behave that poorly – so poorly that even CNN called them out on it.

Honestly, when it comes to certain sorts and those who’ve “allied” with them. the only education they seem to have either received or accepted are hatred, fear, envy, sloth, and misplaced entitlement.

What’s worse is that neither I nor anyone that I personally know have any idea of how to salvage these sorts. Every cure is multi-generational and leaves the current and immediately upcoming ones needing to be solved for rather than cured / re-educated.

Bake Bred They Said

Bake Bred, They Said

For some reason that totally escapes me, baking became The Thing during the ongoing COVID-19 lock-downs – especially baking sourdough and focaccia. The problem is that not everyone is even marginally good at baking bread.

On the other hand – and hopefully on the counter too 😉 – failure can be often be remediated by simply changing the victory conditions.
