    supposedly generates their fear.  However, the fear is endemic.  And, when you come to think of it, incompetent people, whose only recourse is to rely on their gift of gab to somehow exact and extract the necessities of life from those who are competent to produce, have reason to feel insecure and to engage in bluster lest anyone find out.
    When one listens to Willard go on about "encouraging" private enterprise and the bankers echoing his concerns with mewlings about "uncertainty" coming out of Washington, only a firm belief in the myth of the superior, exceptional leadership of Wall Street and the white men who rule there can disguise that there's fear and trembling afoot.
    Nobody wants to talk about the fact that in 2010 there were fully 85 freshmen in the House.  If that trend continues and the Democratic majority returns, there's simply no telling what mischief Obama will engineer. That he's a compassionate conservative has no meaning for the simple reason that the people who coined that moniker weren't sincere.  They know they were lying then and what they fear is that the other party is lying now.
    Can the incompetent be reassured? Probably not. However, their attachment to the seven deadly sins, including sloth, will likely insure that their bark is worse than their bite.
    However, what I'm hoping is that President Obama will confront the myth about our economy and recognize that the role of the federal government is to spend dollars into existence.

    It's about an hour of the first Modern Money&Public Purpose Seminar.
    Wray's assertion that Obama is lying is not quite fair. The executive is constrained by the self-imposed limitations created by Congress.
    Cheney was right that deficits don't matter. However, the 1% hoarding the currency does matter and taxes are needed to make them let go. You have to watch the fourth video to see why.

    We organize governments to provide benefits and prevent abuse.
