Finding Common Ground
I set out tonight to write another in the long line of posts regarding the Fed, The EE, S&P, WOPR and MFing Global. I got about 15 minutes into it and I erased the whole, frickin thing.
Tonight, I'm just not in the mood. Yes, it's all bullshit. S&P mentions that they are ready to downgrade virtually every credit on The Continent and the PMs tank. This is, of course, just another bullish development for the PMs but that doesn't matter. What matters is that the euro declined, so the dollar rallied and WOPR sold the PMs. Whatever. BTFD.
There, that was easy. Instead of wasting your time with a lengthy essay full of charts, I was able to spell it all out in just 55 words. Now we can move on.
A few weeks ago, I found a new blog via the "blog roll" on the left-hand side of the ZH homepage. It's written by a guy by the name of Jim Quinn. I have no idea who he is or whether we have anything in common. I do know, however, that I like his site. Visiting there this evening, I read his latest post. It's linked below.
As you know, I've not been an active supporter of the #occupiers. Frankly, I don't trust them. At this time, I'm not sure I can trust their intentions or their leaders. However, it is quite clear that this first wave of protesters do make some legitimate points and Mr. Quinn has summarized them well. Not knowing Mr. Quinn, it's certainly possible that we have very little in common "politically" but we do agree on one very important point. Namely, that the destruction of the wealth and the freedom of middle-income citizens worldwide is almost complete and, at the end, the world will either turn toward freedom and the rule of law or it will regress deeper into fascism and tyranny.
You've likely noticed that I'm an ardent believer in finding common ground. If we are to emerge from the darkness with freedoms intact, it will only be through cooperation and understanding. Polarity and vilification are the tools of tyrants. We must work together if we are to recover liberty. A good starting point would be a positive and constructive thread of comments to this post. TF
