I do not like to post on economics as the posts tend not to interest many. There is our idiot savant flat earth Duck who still thinks Marx is a valid model. There is a jihadonomics as certain Muslims feel it is their divine right to exact tribute. This sounds like a protection racket out of a grade D mafia script.
Our enemies Commies and Jihadis are placing their future on an economic falacy. Oil is a comodity that fluctuates in price just as Wood, Steel and Orange Juice. The myth
is that oil prices can shoot up forever in a straight line. The problem is that it can not. Rises in the price of oil mean that wells and oil fields that are not viable now become realistic alternatives. At 75 dollars a barrel Canadian Oil Sands are viable.
The greater the increase in the price of oil the quicker the market forces will react with an alternatives. The Saudis are well aware of this as they may be evil but they understand markets. Hugo Chavez and the Iranians fail to understand how markets work.
Ultimately both of our enemies have placed a bet that in the long term is unwinable.
The forces of Jihad are also counting on a huge growth in population to force their will. Social services in Europe are being stretched by an aging population and people who expect handouts with no work. The United States is dealing with similar issues but ultimately hispanic Americans will and do blend in to our culture quite well.
The unwritten story of the series of protests was the organization by Commie front groups. These are the same front groups that our friendly local waterfowl Marxist claim do not exist. This is a later day version of Mafia there is no such thing. Right now there are companies that are exploiting illegal labor but the answer to the problemis genuine enforcement of rules that exist now. It is unrealistic to expect business owners not to tap and exploit these workers. However the answer to these problems require historic liberal responses that are far removed from the crop
of fellow travelers who call themselves liberals today. The response to the illegal alien situation must start with heavy fines for companies that hire illegals. Social services at the federal level for illegal aliens should be defunded. If MA or local municipalities want to house illegal aliens let them pay for it. The ensuing tax payer revolt will sweep every far leftist out of office.
Mr Beamish in 08, Ducky being stalked by Elmer Cheeney, 167 still a ratings zero and Socrasleaze keep looking a big surprise is on its way.
