AND YET, PEOPLE SAY THE TEA PARTY IS CRAZY: Solving the Debt Crisis with a Trillion-Dollar Coin?
UPDATE: Kim du Toit emails:
This is what happens when your political philosophy deliberately ignores history.
First, we had Al Gore’s “carbon credit” scheme — which any Christian knows, used to be called “papal indulgences.” Now we have the “trillion-dollar” coin (made out of thin air) — which methodology (of creating gold from nothing) used to be called the “philosopher’s stone.”
So in the future, when someone talks about “going medieval,” we need to recognize that we’re going to see yet another policy proposal from the Democratic Party.
