Donald Hunt Signs of the Times April 10, 2006

Last week we looked at the high rate of corporate profits realized lately. With stocks strong, global growth rates high, and profits high, why does the economy feel so bad for most people? The following article contains some clues:

America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between. - Oscar Wilde

"Why are we over there in Iraq?"

"To protect our freedoms."

"How are the Iraqis threatening our freedoms?"

"They attacked us on 9/11."

"If that is true, why are so many Americans against the war?"

"I don't know, but I think Cindy Sheehan and all the other war protestors should be rounded up and shot."

The Center for an Informed America

At the risk of offending anyone out there, I really need to ask a question here: what the hell is the matter with you people? And by "you people," I don't mean specifically the regular readers of these newsletters, but rather the American people in general. So to all you John and Jane Q.

"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore." Once that was true, but no longer. Emma Lazarus' beautiful and memorable words we've all heard many times and know well are fading into memory. If we're honest, they should be removed from "Lady Liberty" and be replaced with something like: We'll take your Anglos, especially well-off ones, and the ones we choose with needed skills; you keep the rest, especially your poor, dark-skinned and desperate. We needed 'em once for our homegrown sweatshops. No longer. We've got plenty all around the world. It now looks like we'll make an exception though for the menial or toughest low pay, no benefits, no security jobs no one else wants. We're still debating it and will let you know.

The world learned today that taking to the streets in massive numbers can still have an effect. French president Jacques Chirac announced that the hated law, known as the CPE, a law that would impose job precarity on the youngest members of the work force, would be repealled. It took several days of strikes and millions in the streets of France's main cities, but it worked. Just as the French refused the neo-liberal European Constitution last year, they are refusing the neo-liberal economics of capitalist globalisation.
