  •  Chicken Littles always predict disaster. It's the (7+ / 0-)

    safe bet. If disaster doesn't happen, everybody forgets the prediction. If it does, then the chickens were right.
    It's a habit. Can't be helped. Problem is, it only works with naturally random events. Man-made events, when rational people are at the helm, are designed to prevent disaster and reduce the random to planned.
    Planning to fail is a perversion. It's not what psychologically healthy people do. It is, however, useful for us to be aware that some people do, indeed, plan to fail, make other people fail and even destroy themselves.

    "A train wreck waiting to happen" is an expression employed by people trying to shove off their own inattention or negligence onto the forces of (mother) nature. It's akin to Pontius Pilate washing his hands. If Max Baucus said it, that's just evidence that not all the Cons are in the Republican Party. Makes sense, if you consider that the Con mentality is endemic and political party affiliation is often a family tradition. The Democratic Party is also a top-down organization resistant to government by the people. That officials get paid to take orders is not an attractive thought to the poohbahs.
