Does anyone else find this hilarious?
The economically illiterate cartoonist known as Ted Rall appeared on (where else?) MSNBC to hawk his latest book, which preaches a socialist revolution of sorts. He says the system's broken and the only solution may be a violent overthrow of the government by the workers. Because they need jobs.
Yes, those would be the same jobs that the private sector could create, if it weren't being suffocated by the federal leviathan, that is.
No word on whether Rall is redistributing all of his book's proceeds to "the workers".
Rall says that firing government workers would damage the economy. Of course, the real economy -- the private sector -- is on life support while subsidizing all of the endless federal bureaucracies with workers who make double their private counterparts.
But that whole "private sector" concept was always too complex for the likes of Rall to understand.
Just don't miss any of his royalty payments, Mr. Publisher, or he'll get really, really pissed. Like, violent-overthrow-pissed!
