Pingree Afterthoughts

One more thing; until the next thing, that is.

The session with Pingree reminds me that too many of our permanent governing class, our putative "public servants," don't consider free enterprise, the private sector, and capitalism to be the engine of prosperity for the multitudes. Or as an expression of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Instead, they see them strictly as unprincipled and reckless generators of wealth to be consumed by government for its programs, and they tolerate them only until such time as they find another source to fuel the government engine.

Printing currency may be government's "cold fusion," but in reality, it's just the free lunch theory taken to incredibly destructive lengths. Too many have been getting too fat on those lunches for too long, and look where it's gotten us.

Bloating is a national crisis, and then there's all the overweight people.
