Joe and John want you to eat bugs and weeds

“Then we’ll tell them to eat bugs.”

And drink sewage.

Joe Biden and John Kerry are alike in every way except hair. Both have slopped at the public trough for decades, preening in the slavish adoration of a complicit media.

Both are stupid. Both are fools. Both reassure us that anyone whose giant ego has superceded their modest intelligence can have a brilliant career in government.

They are knaves and scoundrels. Kerry went around President Trump to Iran. Biden went to Ukraine and China.

Now to the bugs, weeds and poop.

They are enthusiasts of the World Economic Forum, which launched the Great Reset.

For decades, progressives have attempted to use climate change to justify liberal policy changes. But their latest attempt – a new proposal called the “Great Reset” – is the most ambitious and radical plan the world has seen in more than a generation.

Instead of traditional capitalism, the high-profile group said the world should adopt more socialistic policies, such as wealth taxes, additional regulations and massive Green New Deal-like government programs.

“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” wrote Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, in an article published on WEF’s website. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”

“My two white fools.”

The World Economic Forum republished an article originally titled, “How to get people to eat bugs and drink sewage.” Wonder why they changed the title.

To help you understand what you must eat, let’s look at what you shouldn’t eat. For example, you shouldn’t eat what they serve at the French Laundry restaurant in the Napa Valley of California.

On Nov. 18, guests had the option of swapping out a Wolfe Ranch White Quail “Presse” for Hand Rolled Ricotta “Agnolotti” for an additional $175. Guests also had the option of swapping an Herb Roasted Elysian Fields Farm Lamb for Japanese Wagyu “Poele” for an additional $100. Courses on yesterday’s menu included a Roasted Cauliflower “Velout,” Nova Scotia Lobster “Galette,” hand-cut Mac and Cheese and a Soft Boiled Rhode Island Red Hen Egg. An assortment of fruit, ice cream, chocolate and candies were available for dessert.

That’s what Caifornia Gov. Gavin Newsom and his lobbyist pals feasted on recently. The basic meal starts at $350, but there were lobbyists there, so. Oh dear. Turns out Gavin is part of the World Economic Forum.

“Not here. Not in public.”

Now back to our two fools, Here’s what John Kerry had to say to the World Economic Forum. See if you can follow.

“Normal was a crisis; normal wasn’t working. We must not think of it in terms of pushing a button and going back to the way things were. We’re a long way off from being able to go back to any kind of normal.

“Forces and pressures that were pushing us into crisis over the social contract are now exacerbated. The world is coming apart, dangerously, in terms of global institutions and leadership. What we never did was adequately address the social contract, the franchisement of human beings around the world, to be able to participate in things they can see with their smartphones everywhere but can’t participate in. This is a big moment. The World Economic Forum is really going to have to play a front and centre role in refining the Great Reset to deal with climate change and inequity — all of which is being laid bare as a consequence of COVID-19.

I hate it when social contracts get exacerbated, whatever. Now here’s what the other fool had to say to no one in particular.

“I’m going to — we’re going to impose the — we’re going to enforce the — excuse me, employ the defense, reconstruct the act, to be able to go out there and dictate companies build and do following things.”

Darn if that isn’t hopeful.

These two fools remind me of a little song.

We don’t need to restart the economy

masksIt will take care of it itself.

Still, we can enjoy the polliticians and experts telling us how to get things going again. They’ve proven to be so smart in this foofaw.

A free market works because it is free. It doesn’t work if it isn’t free. So just let it be free and see what happens.

Remember the scramble to find a mask? Now they’re everywhere. The market responded to supply a demand. No one had to tell mask makers to make masks. Now it’s buy my mask all the time.

Did you have to call your congressman and ask him to ask someone to make you a pencil? The famous essay “I, Pencil” explains how you get pencils, and it’s worth reading now. Here’s a video version for those of you who can’t read.

Did you have to ask a dozen companies to jump into the telemeeting market now that you’re staying at home? And you thought it was all Zoom.

How we’ve avoided rampant unemployment

moneysWe’ve heard repeatedly over the years that technology will throw many, if not most, of us out of work.

What’s actually happening is that, as our economy became super-productive, we began inventing things for people to do. For money.

Look at the scientists as an example. Presumably the following are being paid, and likely by taxpayers.

Daddy, what do you do for a living? Honey, I decode bee dance moves. Daddy, I want to be like you when I grow up.
