I know that lots of good folks find it hard to believe their friends and relatives. I have lots of friends and relatives who have a hard time believing me. And come to think of it, I have a hard time believing them. So let's just call it a wash.
But would you take a few moments to follow this link to Paul Craig Roberts' post?
Thirty years ago, Dr. Roberts was active in government. In fact, he was a respected Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration. His professional credentials (as a political economist) and his love for America are beyond any reasonable dispute.
If you seriously disagree with what he has to say, I welcome your making a credible case for your viewpoint. And always, comments are most welcome: pro, con, funny, serious, or just plain otherwise.
