Damn fool

"What all wise men promised has not happened, and what all the damn fools said would happen has come to pass."

Lord Melbourne

How is it that everybody still believes all those smart people and pundits when they have led us astray so often? It boggles my mind that they are still lauded in the news as such towering geniuses when they have been wrong so many times.

Remember, it is the same voices telling you how to fix this economy that could not see the fall in 2008 coming. I also seem to remember some inarticulate stupid Texan warning us of the coming bubble coming from the mess which was Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Community Reinvestment Act. Yet he was disregarded as an idiot or dunce who couldn't even speak and who is now blamed by President Obama and his Administration for all the ills of the nation. These same smart voices telling us that we are recovering, when all factors say otherwise. President Obama in his much acclaimed jobs speech used the same old tired rhetoric that has been used by progressives throughout history. If this worked we should be out  the woods by now. Not to mention how long he has be "laser focused on jobs". He has used those same words since 2009. Yet we don't have a press to point these things out, because it is against their  Progressive agenda and of being President Obama's propaganda machine. Not to mention they also didn't see this fall coming.

These are same people that want us to believe they have such good information on the happening of the world, but were surprised by things such as the "Arab Spring", the violence now in Egypt, or the Somalia Famine. All of which have been predicted by those not listened to and made fun of damned fools.

That is our problem, we are like the ostrich with the head in the sand only pulling it out when something happens. We then react and when you are reacting you are always behind the power curve. We need to be proactive and get ourselves ahead of these events, whether it is economics, world events, or terrorism. To do so we must stop listening to all these smart people who have been wrong on everything and begin to listen to those damn fools that history has proven right time and again.
