“Why are they doing all this when they have to know that it isn’t going to work?” was the question my wife asked about the stimulus package. My answer to her: “It’s not about fixing the economy; it’s about proving Reagan wrong.” It’s about proving that an enlightened government is superior to a country led by tens of millions of individual sovereign decision makers.
I’ve lived through the Carter years once before. As a nation, we’ll survive this again. Sadly every quarter century or so America has to relearn its lesson.
All I ask is, please, don’t add insult to injury by bringing back disco.
