    Regarding: The Predator State….

    Read This.

    What a stupid article this is! And why on earth follow the link up with an imperative to “Read this”?

    I suppose I should backup my assertion as to why it’s such a silly article…but considering that the author didn’t back up any of his assertions, I won’t either….other than to back up my assertion that it’s a silly article by pointing out that the author didn’t back up any of the sweeping statements.

    Yes, I know it’s a book review, and hopefully Galbraith manages to add a little substance to his (daddy’s) points….but come on….this article was a bunch of empty elitist drivel, driven by some really catchy Leftist “prose”.

    Oohhh…”We live in a Predator State with vile and rapacious goals”…Aahhh….Dick Cheney has created a “corporate republic”…Wow is this stuff fascinating! Oh my…what a surprise, the author even manages to insert the word “fascist”. What a novel, unique perspective he has!
