Lefty Economics




I generally find the lefty blogs to be vitriolic and devoid of humor, nothing like our Scrappleface.

But this piece sent by my geophysicist friend Jackie Floyd from a lefty site called Fafblog ("This is the good blog. This is the best blog. It is the Fafblog.") is amusing.

Nature's Harmonious Money Cycle.

Money starts out in Congress where it rains from Senatorial clouds in the form of torrential tax cuts. It collects in rivers and flows downhill into billionaires and large corporations where it is evaporated by lobbyists and rises into the air in the form of campaign contributions which condense in the atmosphere (Congress again) which rain the tax cuts and start it all over again and the wheel of life rolls on.

Can you find yourself in the Money Cycle?

That's right! You're the tiny microscopic planktony thing about to get eaten by the octopus! You're right next to the leprechaun with the magical pot of pixie gold who's gonna pay down the national debt.

So dear righty friends. Did you get your tax cuts? Are you rich? Do you eat planktony things? I thought so!

This is really stupid! No facts, no back up support, just rant!

Nope, trust me. I'm nowhere in the money cycle.

On behalf of my wife Maria, la Famiglia Goomba, the boys down at the cheese store and the entire Goomba organization, Merry Christmas to you.

Another blogging year has passed and this electronic communications thing still continues to amaze me. Let's make 2006 another powerful year for bloggers with opinions to share. And in this season, as we celebrate the nativity of Jesus Christ, let us also celebrate each other.
