- Call Me Ishmael
I was telling someone last week that I really feel sorry for Obama sometimes. I think if anyone anywhere had explained to him how the world really works, he might have been able to understand it. Regrettably, he was instead inculcated in academia, where almost no one has any idea what drives the great wheel of life. Instead they have this great invented drama of the villainous rich, their victims the poor, and the redistributive heroes.
In fact, if he gets fired for his anti-business excesses and those of his staff, it will undoubtedly be the very first time he's ever been held accountable for anything he's ever done. That's the way it is with academics. When they get things wrong, it's always someone else who pays.
