For the inauguration in January...

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

Whoever wins the election next month may want to borrow a few paragraphs from Franklin D. Roosevelt's inaugural address some 66 years ago:

Finally, in our progress toward a resumption of work we require two safeguards against a return of the evils of the old order; there must be a strict supervision of all banking and credits and investments; there must be an end to speculation with other people's money, and there must be provision for an adequate but sound currency.

There are the lines of attack.

I shall presently urge upon a new Congress in special session detailed measures for their fulfillment, and I shall seek the immediate assistance of the several States.

Through this program of action we address ourselves to putting our own national house in order and making income balance outgo.

None out of three isn't bad. Because that's what we'll get.

We'll get new laws up the ass, but there is no way in hell government ever gets its economic house in order. The government has no interest in regulating its own misdeeds, so all we'll get is more witch hunts.

And yet there is wonder as to why FDR is rated amongst the best of all time as US president.
