So, let’s start with the Massive Drop in the DOW we’ve all heard about:
Holy shit! Pretty significant, ain’t it?
How’s it compare to the last five years?
Wait… so we ain’t even hit bottom yet? What about the past fifty years?
Hmm… now I ain’t no mathematician, but I’m detecting suggestions of a parabolic curve there.
Suggestion: the economy is improving DESPITE government intervention. Meddle as much as they want, they can’t stop the iPod.
None of this is to defend Obama, mind you – August 2nd was the most embarrassing and pathetic instance in American politics since the first rebellion.
But ultimately, our goal ain’t to survive forever – it’s to engender the tech that’ll allow us to survive forever.
Revolution now? Or tread the water for 30 years, ’till we upload?
I’m working on it.
