I am utterly, utterly unqualified to comment on this bailout situation. I don’t know if we should do it, not do it, hold out for less earmarks, wait a few more days. I just don’t know. I’m an economic moron beyond a basic preference for capitalism.
But I can’t help but feel a little shudder when I hear Steve Forbes say to Michael Medved:
“I’ve never been an alarmist…I’ve never seen a situation as dark as it is today…people genuinely don’t understand the magnitude of what is before us.”
I don’t have a link to the audio, because Medved charges for most of his podcasts. Sometimes, however, he posts interviews and/or snippets, and if the Forbes interview becomes available, I’ll post a link to it. The quote was hastily transcribed by me as I listened to their conversation during the 5:00 hours (Eastern time) this afternoon.
If you’re here, it’s probably because of Ace. I say, get on back there, because he’s got links and better information than I do. Thanks for stopping by, though.
