Simple Truths and Jobs Czars and BBernanke

"Government has never increased the standard of living of one single human being in civilizations history.  For some reason, that simple truth has evaded everybody."  Steve Wynn, October 11, 2009, Fox News.

Go to:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZcMzL0Hx9M&feature=related  and listen to Mr. Wynn speak simple truths.  Then click on:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdrxfFFeMbc&feature=related and catch a bit more of his simple truths.

For these simple truths, TheFundamentals recommends that Mr. Obama designate Mr. Wynn, America's "JOBS" czar. 

For a simple truth teller, we suggest a visit to:  http://rumbunter.com/2009/12/03/why-we-love-jesper-parnevik-it-has-nothing-to-do-with-elins-twin/  The applicable expression is, "In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king."  Jesper Parnevik is TheFundamentals "one-eyed" man of the month; heck, make it the year inasmuch as we are almost through with 2009.  His brief comments about current events speak volumes.  A visit to this site will also produce one of the most creative explanations of all time for missing a putt.

Last comment (after all it is Friday and there are chores waiting to be done.)  One of Washington DC's premiere failed bureaucrats has been renominated for another four year term as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank.   This job is now the resting place for that very special type person who could not hold even an entry level job in a competitive environment.  Picture a bus going off a cliff and the driver jumping out at the last minute.  That driver is AGreenspan.  Now, picture the bus plummeting into the abyss and a passenger on the bus, gleefully grabbing the steering wheel, oblivious to the unfolding events around him.  That is BBernanke.

Two winners - both survivors in competitive environments - SWynn and JParnevik.

Two losers - ne'er-do-wells in the rabbit hole called Washington DC.
