It’s a sad day when a sports writer and a lefty to boot, gets it, and the White House can’t see it at all.
And that is the truth. I truly believe they see no value in business minds. The White House is wrapped up in academia, Harvard, Berkley, faculty lounge theory, believing, truly believing that these wizards of smart can right the economic ship, if only we gave them the chance. If only we gave them more money. Yeah that’s it, more money. It is their non-stop endless answer to everything. It is the answer to every statist state that has ever existed. We just need more money, for schools, the poor, housing. It is the lefty salve for whatever ails them without ever asking where it comes from or how capital is created in the first place.
So the economy is stuck in first gear (to use an overused car analogy), and these wizards, who have never signed a pay check other than their own, can’t get it going. Well Mike Barnicle isn’t surprised … and neither should you.
It reminds of when I was a boy and would ask my Dad for cash. The answer was common in the 60s … “Ya think money grows on trees?” Now I knew it didn’t but I had no idea how hard he worked for it, or how he had to be innovative and invest in new equipment and new ideas to stay ahead of his competition. I was immature.
That’s where most lefties are. In a permanent state of adolescence. They know full well where the money comes from. They just have no idea how it is made.
