Popcorn For Everyone

I’m “working” on a couple of more substantive posts (look for them sometime in the next Mayan long calendar) and I’m at least trying to work on what they actually pay me for, so blogging is a notional activity right now…

But by every pasta tendril undulating off the blessed FSM, how in the name of strozzapretti can one pass up this (via TPM):

“You have to ask the question, is capitalism really about the ability of a handful of rich people to manipulate the lives of thousands of people and then walk off with the money?”

Damn good question, actually, and even better when asked by one Newton Leroy Gingrich of the current GOP frontrunner-by-default, the Hon. (sic!) Willard Mitt Romney.

Combine that with the “documentary” Newt’s people are putting out there (well, a  Super PAC that, of course, has no actual contact with the Gingrich campaign, but sure as hell knows what to do), and  Rick Perry’s quotable quote from the campaign trail South Carolina — and what you have is our friends across the aisle working on their own damn circular firing squad for once.

Popcorn, aged tequila, and Republicans going all “we are the 99%” on each other.  What more could this city boy desire?

(PS:  Hey John. Consider this a get-well card.  There are joys in life even after the Steelers stop playing. Really.)

    In other good news, the Gophers took over the #1 spot in this week’s USCHO Div 1 Women’s Hockey poll. Despite the most exciting tie and win this weekend, I’d still have put Wisconsin on top. We may have won the regular season series 2-1-1, but we also have too much of a tendency to take nights off against weaker teams for me to consider us the best. Regardless, it was a fabulous weekend, and I think that it’s going to be very hard for Cornell to take the #2 national seed from us by the end of the season.

    It’s a pretty good day for the whole state4, even, since UMD was the unanimous #1 pick in the men’s poll.

    That’s bizarre– I just posted about this same thing a bit ago, & called it “Go Long On Popcorn Futures For The Niche Liberal Market”. Second time today you guys were on the same thing as me– and the other was mistermix on iPhone aps, rather than something big in the news.

    Anyway, it sure is strange to see this rhetoric coming out of the GOP. It almost makes me wish the Dems would nominate a bunch of private equity types, just to see the right wing deem predatory capitalism unpatriotic.

    Admittedly rather a circuitous route to social change, that.

    The boys on the team had a few late beverages and got a bit rowdy, and hotel security went through at some ungodly hour to all the BU rooms and threw everyone associated with the U – team, band and boosters – out, several hours ahead of schedule. Oh, my head.

    You know, if you do something really, really dangerous…like crack open The Wealth of Nations, that Adam Smith guy explains what the invisible hand is supposed to be doing.

    That has nothing to do with the cloaked hand of the modern financial capitalist, though. The invisible hand is there to bring equity to transactions. The cloaked hand is there to bring profit to its controller at the expense of everyone else in the market. Smith actually alludes to the cloaked hand of the financial manipulator, and decries what it does.

    Man, the general election ads are going to be an avalanche of riches for the Dems. They can run this as the question that Obama will answer. Labor can run the Mitt quote as the basis for the GOPs anti-union move across the country.

    But this quote from Newt is just fantastic because it allows Obama and the Dems to shift the debate off of the bullshit framing of soçialism vs capitalism by the right to the proper argument of ‘what brand of capitalism is best for Americans?’ which rolls clean into the small business, entrepreneur, regulating/taxing the corporate giants for the benefit of the rest of us.

    Newt just handed the Dems the campaign to be capitalism-for-all advocates vs the GOPs capitalism-for-the-rich. We’ll see if they’re smart enough to grab it.

    There are three primary forces dominating modern American politics. The First is old Gentile money, represented by Bain Capital, and a portion of the Republican Party.

    The Second is Jewish money, represented by the Obama Administration and his Treasury department (that would be the Tim Geithner who killed Lehman Brothers, formerly a vehicle of Force #1, and elevated Goldman Sachs, a leading vehicle of Force #2 to Wall Street Supremacy), also represented by the numerical majority of #OWS.

    The Third is working Americans, represented by the TEA Party and an aware minority of #OWS. The leadership of Forces 1 and 2 have hated each other since the beginning of time and deeply fear Number 3.

    When viewed through this lens of Truth, all politics pass the test of Logic.

    Hell yes! I’m amazed at how many people think capitalism is a system of morals. No, it’s an economic system that allows some to get rich, usually at the expense of others, many others. It’s cruel, it’s dog-eat-dog, and what Bain Capital did was EXACTLY what good capitalists are supposed to do if we let them: screw the many for the good of a few! Why is everyone so shocked?

    We could pass laws and regulations and create watchdog agencies to prevent this, of course, but the good people of America drank the Reagan kool-aid, and so the hated “government schools” probably no longer teach economic theory any more, they just teach kids to genuflect before the god of capitalism.

    His campaign’s least-bad response to it is to complain about it being out of context, and they’ve already really aggressively said that they don’t give a damn about that.

    It’s hard to conceive of a more perfect petard for Mitt.

    @A Conservative Teacher: One, it was Newt Gingrich’s question, dumbass; two, Hayek was not a booster of unregulated, laissez-faire capitalism. There really is more to his thinking than the book title; you should read further than that.

    @A Conservative Teacher: How about if you read The Wealth of Nations and get back to us.

    @A Conservative Teacher:
    It is quite possible that you are one of the best arguments for never letting a “conservative” anywhere near anything important.

    @El Cid:

    Conservatives are seemingly incapable of comprehending anything beyond a shiny surface, requiring more than a soundbite or a paragraph.

    Therefore, Hayek is just “unregulated capitalism”;
    The Wealth of Nations is “invisible hand solves everything”;
    Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA is a “patriotic anthem” if you only listen to the first line of the chorus;
    and most of these irony-deaf idiots thought Stephen Colbert was a conservative until he verbally gutted The Chimp at that White House dinner.

    No wonder they loved Reagan and Idiot Bush with their simpleton, comic-book-level drivel. It’s easier than thinking.
