Nancy capitalists

The naysaying nabobs of nancy capitalism are at it again.

For folks who have made a living saying that 'it's different this time', that 'we're turning a page'- why they sure have suddenly found a special affinity for history.

As of late, the chattering is on property rights and visiting the Roosevelt age - I have never heard so many right-wingers use the term 'economic royalists' then I have as of late.

This reminds me of when the Dems took the majority in 2006, all the ideologues in unison lept up and declared 'the subpoenas are going to be flying' to which I retorted 'What's all the concern? Did someone do something wrong?'

The cold hard fact of our age is that the bankrupt ideology of the rich that had greatly succeeded in drafting the inner monologue of regular folks so that they would vote against their self-interests is colliding head-on with a Mr. Market that is a bit pissed off that we've inflated it out of the business cycle for the last quarter century.

Regular folks who don't as a matter of course lie find it hard to believe that the the lies told over and over again to them are actually lies. It is just hard to process for it is from a place-of privilege and power and entitlement-that is foreign to them.

However, the alarm clock is now starting to ring and people are getting a bit skeptical as to what the nice man on TV is saying.

I have created jobs, have met a payroll for many years, but it was not done by the benefit of an elite education nor the spelling of my last name.

It was done by having a dream, taking action to make that dream a reality, defying all the odds -even when my net worth was in my wallet-, and embracing my failures.

America will survive not by bailouts but by bail-ins. Success not because of government nor in spite of government but success oblivious to government.

In America you can accomplish whatever you set your mind towards, if you believe you can, and have the guts to take the chance. By your hands and by your mind you can create the reality you want from clay. That is America.

No government program can give or take away from us that uniquely American quality.

Maybe we need to be collectively punched in the face to understand we can take a punch instead of perpetually gorging at the punch bowl.

If you believe you can you will.

If you believe you can't you won't.

How do you get it done?

Just do it.


Because you can.


Right now.
