On November 15, our lame turkey president is hosting a meeting of world leaders. Fear not, oh libertarians, your Shrubby champion will urge his fellow despots to support “Democratic Capitalism”. What the hell is “Democratic Capitalism”? Is that anything like National Socialism? Baby-Doc Bush states that it’s about free markets, free enterprise, and free trade. Note that the operative word here is free, as in Scot free; as in “you watch out for the cops while we mug the housing market”. The U.S government doesn’t even make a pretense to honesty anymore. America watched as our congress divided up a 750 billion dollar swag amongst the very crooks who ripped us off. Frankly, I don’t understand why they even bother outlawing street mugging anymore. Maybe it’s because Wall St. can’t stand the competition?
According to the Yahoo! article, the location of the meeting has not yet been announced. People speculate that it’s to foil protesters. I think it’s so there are no witnesses. This is the second time in 80 years that the U.S has caused a worldwide economic meltdown. I think that the location is a secret because the rest of the world’s leaders don’t want any witnesses. Rumor has it that Gordon Brown’s valet caught the Prime Minister packing a cosh into his briefcase. There are also whispers about secret meetings between Brown and Kevin Rudd at a Malaysian pub frequented by mercenaries. There are speculations that the PM of Japan was spotted at secret meetings with the Yakuza. Then again, this may all be baseless rumors and the world leaders are simply going to rat pack poor Dubya.
Our fearless leader’s spokesrat said that it was unlikely that they would come to an accord on the first meeting. Well, duh! Baby-Doc Bush only has two months left before his exit plan. Bush’s exit plan is to pack his bags and leave the mess for the next guy to deal with. The only question is whether he heads for South America like Bohrmann, or simply exiles himself in Florida like O.J. So really, what can we expect Dubya to do except do a holding action while Wall St. CEOs stuff money in duffel bags and high tail it West Palm Beach? You can’t send out of state subpoenas into Florida.
Seriously, what possible use can come out of a meeting with Baby-Doc Bush? The man is totally Wall St. He doesn’t hear anything he doesn’t want to hear. He ignores criticism and doesn’t care what his own constituents want. What makes the rest of the world think that he’s going to do anything positive about the situation he put the world into? It’s not as if Bush was actually in charge. He is the front man for the same team that was in office when Nixon was president. Nixon was too drunk most of the time to be effective. Reagan was senile. Bush is just simply too stupid to really understand what is going on. So unless the leaders of the world plan on rat packing George and kicking him to death, I cannot imagine what they hope to accomplish.
The real danger of this meeting is not that Bush will take it over. At this stage of the game, America has ceased to be a player in the world economy. The only thing we produce is oil, and that is a rapidly disappearing commodity. We do not grow our own crops any more. The lion’s share of our production was sent overseas. It looks like our leaders have screwed the pooch by outsourcing America to death. The biggest danger we face is being set aside and ignored. The rest of the world can fix their own economies and simply let the U.S stew in its own juices.
I can just imagine the libertarians are going to love that! . Oh, those rocket scientists would dance and sing and hug each other while toasting the return of small capitalism. Then they would realize that the price of small capitalism is a short and brutish life without the amenities they think are theirs by right. There won’t be time to post on the Internet when they have to go out and grow their own damned beans. There has never been a day when America was not a part of the world economy. Watch what happens to our currency once we are set adrift.
I hope the next president will have the brains god gave a rock. With good luck the SEC and the FTC will be restored. Maybe this free enterprise garbage will be reinterpreted. Free enterprise should not mean being able to steal anything not nailed down. Otherwise we can look forward to a very grim future.
