The line of the day

The line of the day comes from Doug Bandow writing at Forbes and regarding the failed Obama-led economy and the bigger failure of Keynesian economics:

If government could spend America to prosperity, good times would have arrived long ago.

As Mr. Bandow points out, it’s easier for industry to practice regulatory capture and grab government grants than it is to innovate (let alone to assume the risk playing with one’s own money).

Although the lesson of “teach a man to fish” should come to mind, “teach a man to lobby” seems to be the rule of Obamanomics.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
