We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
... college grads should forget the dream of stable, long-term jobs in the education, health care, or public sector (what he refers to as the “rentier cartel-state economy”), and instead adapt themselves to the realities of the freelance economy.
Good advice. The rentier economy is going nowhere but downwards.
It's a shame that the state that gave us Edison, the Wright Brothers, Rockefeller, Charles Brush, and provided a home for Proctor & Gamble, Goodyear, NCR and so much more...had to be exposed to this nonsense.
"The Founders left us the keys to a system of self-government," he went on, "the tool to do big and important things together that we could not possibly do alone."
Yeah, but that doesn't mean the Founders predicated that Government would be part of that collective effort by individuals who band together. Only a Fascist like Obama who has no regard for the accomplishments of other people ("You didn't build that") and is inflexibly hostile toward free markets would assume Government should be or must be a partner in everything a free people choose to do.
