Why The Casino Is Dumber Than A Mule, Part 2

The nation’s looming fiscal and financial catastrophe is so damn obvious that it puts you in mind of the race car driver heading for a cliff at 150 mph—all the while whistling a happy tune called, “So far, so good!”

The cliff we are speaking about, of course, is the unprecedented fiscal/monetary collision now underway; and the particular race car driver in question is a rookie whose day job mainly involves emitting unhinged tweets, bluster and braggadocio from the Oval Office.

To be sure, it’s not just the Donald’s blithering crackpottery on economic matters that’s at issue. We doubt that Cool Hand Luke himself could navigate today’s treacherous financial terrain—the legacy of decades of fiscal profligacy and monetary madness, and which is now coming home to roost with a vengeance.
