Good Feed

Every now and then I stumble on an article that after I read it, I don't know whether to laugh or to cry.  A weekend book review did just that: "Thinking Inside The Box."  It is a review of the book "Adventures Inside the Orgasmatron; How The Sexual Revolution Came To America," by Christopher Turner.  I just downloaded this title onto my Kindle App, so you may hear more about it later, but the review was enough to really pique my interest.

Apparently in the 1940's and '50's, the intellectual elite of this country ( the Anthony Weiner, Nancy Pelosi, Michael Moore, Michelle Obama crowd of fifty years ago) fell under the thrall of another psyche explaining German named Wilhelm Reich (unfortunate last name given the timeframe) who hawked a product called the "orgone box" that accumulated the vaporous orgone.  When one sat in the box, all clarity came to you as you experienced the "apocalyptic orgasm."    Apparently once the gild was off the lilly of communism, Dr. Reich's solution to nirvana took hold.  What is it today?  Global Warming "Climate Change?"No, really, I am not making this stuff up.  If you are interested, I linked Amazon to  the picture and title above.  I'm going to read my copy in my cozy chair, perhaps watching Woody Allen's "Sleeper."

If only Anthony Weiner had had one of these...
Well, when not fantasizing that we can all be cured with giant doses of orgone, the left continues to destroy the economy.  Here's some cheery news from Forbes:  "Good Bye Recovery, Hello Recession."  The author points out, correctly, that everyone from businesses to individuals is paying off debt (oops, the government is NOT doing that) and hoarding cash.  The reason?  Fear and uncertainty.  The economic policies of Obama and his team have left us all wishing we had one of those little balls in our house.

And they still don't get it - this just in...it takes 887, 624 hours for banks to comply with the new Federal regulations.  That's 110,000 days or roughly 395 years worth of man hours in cost that the banks now bear thanks to Dodd-Frank.  And we wonder why the economy is slow.  And where do you think that cost of compliance will fall?  Still, you talk to some Simplibs, and they will tell you that the real problem with the economy is that there isn't ENOUGH regulation: "Cass Sunstein: "The Obama Administration's Ambivalent Regulator."

Well, there is hope.  Maybe some reality is starting to sink in.  There's this: "Obama Fundraiser Underwhelms" - apparently the swooning and fainting numbers are way down.  And there is this:

Now that's some real hope for change!

That's it for today.
