Not much news leaks through the media bulwark of Ebola and ISIS but we assume the earth proceeds even without our attention. Russia is still trying to mug Ukraine, Hong Kong is still trying to wrest some freedom from China, the E.U. is still trying to convince Germany to support the rest of the place, the British government is still trying to convince Britons they wish to be part of that. Oh, and Americans still want to believe that they can obtain high living standards from a dwindling economy committed to welfare at public expense. Right.
We won’t get into Argentina, Brazil, China, Japan and India watching the air escape from their economies, all at the same time, too depressing. And we certainly don’t want to consider the STORY OF THE DECADES: The Fed’s announced retreat from “Quantitative Easing.” This is analogous to the local dealer’s cutting you off cold from your drugs. But as the Fed is a world-wide power, the effect here is anything but local.
So, let’s see: We have the Department of Justice Fast and Furious scandal and the Attorney General having to resign. We have the IRS scandal, the Benghazi scandal, the unpopular open borders and the oncoming costs of healthcare imposed by Obamacare in a time when too many aren’t making it. There’s more but that’l do for now with a Congressional election almost on us. Best we talk of Ebola and ISIS.
Dems are throwing Obama under the bus too; he can’t run again and a new Savior is needed. Publicly peeing on the old Prez does two things: It frees the Congressional Dems of contamination by the Prez and it allows the lame duck to do things the citizens dislike without sticking to the other Dems. Hopefully, anyway.
So we expect (We know nothing!) that the GOP will do its job next week and end in charge of Congress. From there to 2016, the Dems and their media will see to it that everything that offends voters is blamed upon the Republicans as they are in control. The Fed’s carefully timed stinkbomb will likely poison the economy during this period. And all will hate the Republicans on cue in time for the 2016 presidential election. Again, hopefully.
Our crystal ball won’t give us next week’s gasoline prices, let alone political election results, so we don’t know any of this. It just seems to fit. Maybe you have some better ideas; if so, kindly put them forth; they will be welcome. We would like to be wrong here, after all. If Ebola and ISIS vanish from the ‘ners’ come next Wednesday though, we will be left with some awful suspicions …The election will be over and the economic plug-pulling Fed policy change will be old news, not worth discussing. Right? Or wrong?
