Frying Pan or Fire?

The courage to do nothing

Here's what I took away: The really, really rich movers and shakers are completely convinced that neither Sen. Obama nor Sen. McCain have a clue about the economy, or how to fix the plague of fiscal problems descending on America. The advisers with whom they are surrounded are shallow and have very little to add to the discussion.

I can't say I really disagree with this notion.

What I do know is that good old economic conservative principles that have always worked in the past will work now, if given the chance. Free markets. Less regulation. Consistent oversight. Growth. As for ordinary folks, don't buy more mortgage than you can afford, and live below your means.

Do you really think the government that helped create this mess through over-regulation can make it better by adding more regulation? I want our congressmen and senators to get their grubby, fat fingers out of the pie, to hell with their power trips. They are already trying to add credit card debt, automakers, and ACORN into the deal. Either they don't have a clue what they are doing, or they do know what they are doing, and either way we, the people, are the ones who are getting royally screwed.
