What a dumb question. Some commentator today was asking who Korea would find to buy nuclear warheads or missiles. You gotta figure that anyone in just about anyplace with enough money, right? And you really think Obama has a plan to "talk nice" as State Department diplomacy is the answer........
There are so many things happening at once as we've all noted before. It seems that every day there's something new on Obama's plate. He just flits from one program to the next. And that's what has me worried.
Grant's tomb was my first analogy of the day and the second has to do with how long it takes to turn an aircraft carrier around. I understand it takes miles and miles and that's when everyone wants to turn around. What do you think our chances of getting back to capitalism after some of our largest industries and services are nationalized might be? Particularly in view of the fact that the libs want to keep the socialized system so they're not all steering in the same direction.
Let's start counting and don't forget that we're talking about some of the largest corporations in the country:
Automobiles--where will investors come from who would put money in a union/government business when the owner (Obama) considers private investors to be speculators and money grabbers.
Insurance companies--who will buy? "Protection" insurance will be totally over priced and term/life types might go under.
Banks--It's hard to wrap our arms around the myriad services and figure which ones can stand alone and which ones will need government guarantees. Who will want to take a chance?
Healthcare--I can't imagine how long (quickly) all businesses will divest their fringe benefit program of healthcare and everyone except seniors who are forced into Medicare and Medigap coverage will be in the government single payer plan. And these private plans will be forced out in that New York minute.
It will look like those intricate domino designs which takes hours and hours to construct and then the key tile is pushed and it's destroyed in minutes. Who is going to make the investment of time and money to reconstruct the design?
I just don't see how the optimism level was reported as higher today. It is really a sad scenario.
Good nite and God bless............
