I was telling Democrats to
I'm the supreme fiscal conservative--I squeeze a nickel so tight the Indian rides the buffalo. I hate spending with a passion. I don't do it except when I have to, and I encourage everyone I know to do the same thing.
2. Yes, I do expect the financial crisis to just go away if we leave it alone. Economies are self-healing entities. If you bothered to study something other than Dear Leader's pompous platitudes, you would have learned that basic economic principle. Bankruptcy wipes out the losers and clears the field for new contestants--which is exactly what is needed now.
The deep wounds and festering sores occur when nimrods like the Anti-Republicans and their befuddled, benighted, babbling baboon Dear Leader decide they want to "fix" the economy. They don't dare let AIG fail because it's "too big". They don't dare let BofA and Citi fail because they're "too big". They're desperate not to let the UAW fail because it is "too big." "Too big to fail" means "too big to exist, period."
Let these corruptocrats at BofA, AIG, Citi, Goldman Sucks, go down the tubes. Let the vultures come in, pick up the pieces, and form new healthy banks and finance companies. Other than an overly inflated housing bubble, which impacts primarily these same corruptocrats, the economy of Main Street was doing ok. Healthy business will attract healthy finance, just like it has for centuries.
