Our Collapsing Kleptocracy (William N. Grigg)

William N. Grigg on the corrupt Bush and the collapsing economy:

Occasionally the Mass Murderer-in-Chief will make a candid comment that serves as a core sample of his personality. Beneath the superficial affability that disguises his inbred sense of unearned privilege, below the dense-pack arrogance, hidden away under multiple layers of ignorance and corruption, at the center of his being, Bush is a creature of the kleptocratic State, in its crudest and most destructive form.

It’s not just that Bush has completely internalized a dimwit’s version of Keynesianism. He also appears genuinely to believe that war –heedless wholesale destruction -- is more profitable than constructive private enterprise.

Read the rest, and also see an economic principle Bush is completely ignorant of: destruction is NEVER good for the economy.
