The author is not only himself but his predecessors, and simultaneously he is part of the living tribal fabric, the part that voices what we all know, or should know, and need to hear again.

It's All Fun and Games, Until You're in the Unemployment Line

 

This morning I attended a regular project meeting, and toward the end of the session, Joe the Plumber was laughed at by the four others in the meeting. I don't do politics at work, so I said nothing, but for these lifers in the company where I consult, how far removed are we as a people to laugh at a guy who wants to start a company and grow his dream? Then at the end of the meeting, after everyone agreed that the work I've done on the web site is spot-on and ready for production, they laughed about now having to go back to their desk to see how poorly their company is doing in these economic conditions. (The company's fine, by the way. It was sarcasm.)

The growing movement to go John Galt might be necessary to remind these folks how jobs get created in the first place.

Time to bone up on your Ayn Rand, everyone.
