Under the ruling thumb of economic charlatans
Whether to pay the price for our “exceptionalism”, or just a malediction, we in the United States seem to be condemned by our own government to live under a constant lie. In 2002, it was Charlatan Bush with his political lie, the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, which allowed him to instigate fear and get his way, in restricting freedoms, waging wars, and raiding the poor peoples’ pockets. Now it is Charlatan Obama with his economic lie that the economy is improving, that there’s no need to worry; that there are no loose ends. And that brings me to a few general questions that I feel we in America should be asking… about ourselves.
