This Herman Cain thing has me in one of my black moods.
When I get in one of these moods, it's time to pull back a bit and let it pass, lest I say or do something I will later regret.
Our political system sucks. It doesn't work. It continually erodes both human freedom and economic prosperity, and I don't see much of a chance of ever turning it around.
The real greed is not with the capitalists, but with the motley mob of malcontents who continually seek to sack Rome and carry off the gold, the goodies and the screaming wenches. They want what you've got, while doing everything possible to avoid giving you anything of theirs. Our democracy is only slightly removed from the French Revolution, where hordes of madmen chop off the heads of anyone better off than they are.
Even now, as I write this, the mob has invaded the Port of Oakland, shutting it down while breaking windows and spray-painting graffiti on buildings. It is time to call in the National Guard, with fixed bayonets, to rid the city of these vermin, as Ronald Reagan once did from the "People's Park" in Berkeley...thinking of these things, I am reminded that civilization is only skin deep and the social fabric of society easily rent...at what point do we have another Civil War?
