Weeping

... it doesn’t matter now
it’s over anyhow
he tells the world that it’s sleeping
but as the night came round
I heard its lonely sound
it wasn’t roaring
it was weeping

and then one day the neighbors came
they were curious to know about the smoke and flame
they stood around outside the wall
but of course there was nothing to be heard at all
"my friends" he said
"we’ve reached our goal
the threat is under firm control
as long as peace and order reign
I’ll be damned if I can see a reason to explain
why the fear and the fire and the guns remain"


-- Dan Heymann

Paul Craig Roberts was a devoted Reaganite, wasn't he? An advocate of the position

that the Civil Rights Act institutionalizes discrimination against white males? Winner of an award from ALEC?

Let's take a quick peek at his notion of sound economic theory:

If you want to understand what is happening to Microsoft, read “Atlas Shrugged” ... Hank Rearden, inventor of the fabulous Rearden metal, is harassed and blackmailed by unaccountable government until he, like other persecuted businessmen, shrugs and walks away to join John Galt in a passive resistance ... Rand is scathing in her comparisons of the government class with the entrepreneurial class. She could rewrite her story today using real characters ...
Bill Gates, Meet Ayn Rand
Paul Craig Roberts (2001.01.02 )

Want to guess who he supported in 2012?

... Ron Paul is our last chance .... the other candidates offer no hope whatsoever ...
