I saw a report on KELO News about Steve Forbes' visit to the Sioux Falls Chamber today. He says the stimulus spending was a waste, has not worked for the Japanese, and that it didn't work for FDR either. (My dear one said: WHAT?)
He called for cutting spending and taxes to bring the dollar up. Yup, that would be great for the economy, strangle our exports, etc... Smoot-Hawley anyone?? Anyone??
But my favorite comment I heard in the short news report was a recommendation for South Dakotans to basically "hunker down." Ya know like his Wall Street buddies are, as they cash in against the next credit default swap derivatives meltdown.
Like that isn't what the bottom 90% has been doing since 1972?
