I have been saying all along that what is unfolding right now economically, politically, socially and morally in this country fits Rand's vision (and Orwell's in "Animal Farm") like a fine leather Hermes dress glove:
President Barack Obama joined patriotism with economics as he urged U.S. business leaders to “get in the game” in support of their country by spending more cash.The fact of the matter is that spending cash for the sake of spending cash will not benefit anyone. The Government will borrow at least 4.1 billion per day this year to spend money for the sake of keeping its massive bureaucracy and egregiously wasteful programs in place - to the benefit of no one, other than the Government employees who are kept employed and overpaid by this spending and the businesses who control how the Government spends its money. THAT is right out of "Atlas Shrugged."
Here's the news story from Bloomberg: LINK. Read and weep for our country...And then go buy more gold and silver!
