I must confess. There are a lot of smart people on WB with great command of issues, fantastic analysis and some good solutions. I regularly watch Youtube and I am just blown away by how smart people are and how they grasp the complexity of problems I could never hope to. People like Paul Craig Roberts, Gerald Celente, Max Keiser, Jim Rickards, Chris Hedges, and even people on the extremes like Alex Jones on the right and Jimmy Dore on the left actually have well thought out analysis and solutions.
So why are the smart ones never on MSM? Why aren't they being invited to help analyze and solve our many problems, particularly economic. More importantly, we are stuck with a bunch of dunces that know very little and have no real comprehension of problems and workable solutions. Like the ninnys on MSNBC that think a college education is the answer to everything economic or the Fox empty heads that think cutting taxes would perform miracles for the disillusioned and dissolving middle class. Most Americans actually have a decent education and job skills. The problem is that we do not have enough good jobs to meet the supply.
It no less astounds me that no one in authority or the public eye seems to have an inkling of critical thinking, reasoning, logic or intellectual prowess. Instead they just parrot the same tired, outdated and vastly wrong talking points made up by even bigger crackpots and mental deficients.
In 1961 with the US running behind the Soviet Union in the space program JFK challenged the US to reach the moon by decade end, which we did. Now granted throughout the 1960s there were those that argued spending billions to visit a place with nothing but dust, dirt, rocks and unbreathable air was wasteful (my mother was one of them). However, we did it with 1960s technology. Remember how bad technology was in the 1960s? It was herculean task just to get a report that showed you last month's sales numbers. Only bigger companies even had access to technology. Yet somehow we made it to the moon. Today, we can't even get flights out of airports on time. The monthly unemployment number is no where close to reality.
Will we ever again put our best into leadership positions or will we get the same kind of both clueless public and private managers we now have? The ones that have created a business world based upon credit default swaps or payday lenders or public leaders that somehow managed to spend $20 trillion with little to show for it. Will we ever honor again the kind of writers showcased on WB or will it be mindless writing about "Buffy my Tabby Cat" or "How do you get your employees to like you" garbage?
America doesn't lack talent. It has no shortage of smart people with answers. It has the means to solve problems. Unfortunately, the people needed are blogging on WB while the dunces, douche bags, morons, charlatans, dingbats, bimbos, airheads, juice heads and all around imbeciles are pontificating away on CNN and in the New York Times. Or worse serving in Congress or have the title of CEO.
