We need FDR, not JFK.


Did you catch this:

To note, this fiery Mayor of Lansing, MI, Virgil Bernero, endorsed Hillary Clinton for President last year. Of course. And not only does he seem to be as much of a fighter as she is, he also has the facts, the numbers and the arguments all marshalled up and speaks them with heart, like she does – versus Mr.uhhhh.

I was thinking the other day that if all goes as it is right now, we may just be witnessing the death of Libertarian theory in the US, like the collapse of communism in the 1980’s. I’ve always been more a Hamiltonian, but this whole economic collapse moves me (as it apparently does everyone) leftward. I wouldn’t want govenment participating in production, like in India pre-1991, but I do think the situation warrants more controls, laws and regulations.

In other news, awesome concept, this, to use biogeographic theories associated with the distribution of life and extinction to identify the location of bin Laden.

Update 2/19: Apparently this Mayor’s daughter was head of the Students for Hillary at U of M in Ann Arbor. Yay to her too.
