Homeless man has better grasp of economics than Democrats

This is an amazing snippet of a homeless man — who must be sorely tempted by the welfare state — recognizing that the only way to relieve him from the burden of economic disaster is to get the government out of the economy:

For those liberal trolls who have found this website, let me explain to you what one savvy homeless man understands, and what no liberals seem to grasp:  Governments do not create goods.  Governments do not create wealth.  Governments print money (and, when they print too much, they create inflation).  Governments do have the power to take money from the wealth creators, and then to create make work so that people look as if they have meaningful jobs, but this is a giant Ponzi scheme.  Suck enough wealth out of the private sector for these pretend jobs, and you eventually end up with lots of pretend jobs and no wealth.

    Book: has there been a recent increase in liberal trolls that merited  their mention?

    There have been a few, but I’m also aware now of the specific things they like to attack.


    Homeless perhaps because the ‘wrong one’ is currently occupying the house where this man should be living.

    I don’ think trolls really like it here. People who are not used to adult company or well thought-out world views tend to get shaken pretty hard when their little formulas for inciting attention don’t work.

    I forget the name of the last kid who trolled here, the one who was obsessed with Rush Limbaugh. He quickly skulked away when people here began systematically exposing the deep flaws in his thinking.

    I compare the trolls who come here to toothless hicks who go out on a lake to dynamite some fish. They drop a stick or two to excite things, then soil their pants when what happens next is a flotilla of 16-inch gun battleships enters the cove to see what the commotion is.

    “to get out of where we are . . .”

    I love those words.
