Democracy passes into despotism – Plato, “The Republic”
Given that Plato lived a few hundred years before the “B.C.” calendar designation, it is appropriate to add “always” to his quote after “Democracy.”
I’m gearing up for this weekend’s NFL playoffs, especially the last game on Sunday, so I don’t want to make too much of today’s non-farm payroll report. Especially since, given that we know the numbers are manipulated to completely distort the truth (change the rules of the game), I hate to reinforce any possible legitimacy of the report by applying rational thought to them (I just marvel how financial media makes millions selling advertising because viewers are glued to watching so-called experts dissect and debate these fraudulent reports – it makes a complete mockery of the truth).
Today’s reported number showed 74,000 jobs created in December, well under the 200,000 expected by Wall Street’s best and brightest. Since Wall Street missed the mark this badly, you’ll hear repeatedly that the numbers were affected by the cold weather. Hmmm…I’m guess if I’m hungry and need to find a job, I’ll just wait until next month to start working if it’s too cold for me to go outside this month.
