Whatever may be said against Mr. 0, you have to admit he has an awesome set of pipes!
Galt-in-Da-Box has to ponder and seriously question however, what B. B. King, Martin Luther King, Jr & Frederick Douglass might have to say on his rather controversial assertion regarding the liberty they fought for and by which they were made successful. It would appear we are on our way back to imperialist England via His Majesty's Royal Court. When too much wealth and power are concentrated in too few hands, those few become able and willing to buy unconstitutional authority. Why don't we see any efforts to "occupy" Goldman-Sachs or the Federal Reserve board's offices? Is it possible that movement is as much bogus as the Tea Party? If they are not, such actions would be a good way to prove it.
It's not that the Occupation hippies and TEAbaggers don't each have valid points, but that such points are more often hollow rhetoric than issues these agencies sincerely wish to address.
Much like the politicians and Owners they critique, demonstrators and lobbies of the postmodern error seem to concentrate their efforts on demanding entitlement rather than answers: they want hush-money, not solutions for the issues they raise. The Martin Luthers and Martin Luther Kings are gone and the Jesse Jacksons are here. We don't give an honest days work for pay anymore, why bother when you can whine for it instead. This sniveling comes from the top down, as well as the bottom up. Politicians rant and rail against constitutional constraints and laws against insider trading. Old-money filthy rich want their Boomer retirement gimmes AND 0bamacare, but don 't want to pay for it, while 0ccupiers want a job to magically matterialize where they can ply their worthless doctorate in propaganda. Meanwhile, across the Pacific, cultures that have never known liberty until recently, boom and prosper the way we used to, from the principle our "enLIEtened" dumbasses in charge now consider antiquated: The radical concept of making things for which there is a demand, and getting paid to do so!
Mr. President, it's not that "freedom never worked", it's that it cannot work without individual responsibility and discipline.
