One of those days... [09 Jun 2014|11:40pm]
Do you ever stay up late, I mean, not because you're watching a movie or slaving over a ham or anything, but to just let it out? To cry and cry, for no real reason, but just because you want to? It's one of those nights, LJ. It's the usual heartstring pullers: Thai insurance commercials, Will Smith, and hood figures. I guess it's okay to cry, it's okay to have feelings and to want to let them out. To feel down, and to want to express it. To feel overwhelmed, and to want to understand anguish. To see others facing their problems, and to make it through them.

When people face their weaknesses and overcome them, it shows a great strength. Maybe the strong thing to do is to allow me to be me. To allow myself to be okay with what I feel, and what I want. People can be sad; I can be sad, and neither of those are bad things. They are experiences, just as important as every good thing that ever happened. Neither is better nor worse, as both serve us and help us to grow as individuals.

I write to you, LJ, because I wish to grow as an individual. Will anyone ever read you again? Who knows, but I know that many years of my life were cataloged with you. You hold the great history that once was me. And I intend on learning about who I am again. I intend on continuing my journey to understanding my life, my wants, my needs, and my desires. I insist that I live a full life, free of regrets, with experiences with family and friends that I will be able to recant at a moment's notice, and experiences alone that challenge me to understand my inner compass without anyone by my side.

I am Vince. I am only who I am, and that is okay. I will always be myself. I will do the best that I can for myself, and when there is an abundance, I will give selflessly to those I love. My family, my friends, my brothers in humanity. But I will no longer deny myself. I refuse to put others before me. It is my life to live, and I alone am responsible for it. I am responsible for my happiness. I am responsible for my growth, for my well-being.

LJ, it's been great talking to you again. I hope to fan the flames inside me and be the best person I can be for me.

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days

Alone above a raging sea

And drowned her deep inside of me


Resolutions: Not doing this, remember?

Nothing is more self-defeating than masturbating when you're sad.

Sometimes, people just need a hug.

Paul Krugman's Depression
By Investor's Business Daily

Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman says the U.S. is in the "early stages of a third Great Depression." If he's right, it's only because American policymakers have been following his advice.

Hell knows no wrath like that of an economist scorned - especially one on the left of the political spectrum. Case in point: New York Times columnist and sometime economist Paul Krugman. The world is going to hell in a handbasket, Krugman suggested this week, thanks in large part to its refusal to follow his advice to the letter.

Actually, he has it exactly backward. Krugman was among those who encouraged the new Obama administration and the Democratic Congress to spend massive amounts of money early on in a kind of Keynesian frenzy to shock the moribund economy back to life.


It didn't work. With a stimulus - a deficit, that is - of nearly 11% of GDP, our economy is barely growing, while unemployment remains shockingly close to 10% of the adult working population.

This even prompted our nation's vice president, Joe Biden, to admit last weekend: "There's no possibility to restore 8 million jobs lost in the Great Recession."

And he's right - at least with current policy, which is based on massive spending, new tax hikes, trillion-dollar deficits for decades to come and tight government control of vast swaths of our nation's economy, from banking to autos to energy.

Krugman recognizes, too, that it's a "failure of policy."

Only problem is, he completely misdiagnoses the problem: "Around the world - most recently at last weekend's deeply discouraging G-20 meeting - governments are obsessing about inflation when the real threat is deflation, preaching the need for belt-tightening when the real problem is inadequate spending."

Inadequate spending? That's laughable. The reason our economy hasn't improved is because our government has spent too much, siphoning badly needed investments and savings from the highly productive private sector to feed the nonproductive, inefficient, heavily unionized government sector. It's a recipe for stagnation.

This has happened the world over. To their credit, even the socialist nations of Europe now recognize this. They were behind the move at the G-20 to reduce government budgets. Only the neo-socialist Obama administration and its pals in Congress don't get it.

Krugman faults policymakers for failing to learn from history. Since he used the word "Depression," let's look at the last one.

It's an enduring myth that the Great Depression was caused by inadequate government "stimulus," of the sort Lord Keynes and President Obama would have approved. In fact, as a study by economist Randall Holcombe shows, under President Hoover, who served from 1929 to 1933 just as the Depression got under way, real per-capita spending surged 82%. That was even greater than the 74% rise from 1933 to 1940 in FDR's time.

So why did that slump last so long? UCLA economist Lee Ohanian studied that question. His conclusion: "The main culprit appears to be government policies that restricted competition." Indeed, stupid economic policies, including higher taxes, trade protectionism and the government's foolish effort to prop up wages, added seven years to the Depression. But for the government's tinkering, we would have exited that rut in the early 1930s, says Ohanian.

Economists Charles Rowley of George Mason University and Nathanael Smith of the Locke Institute came to a similar conclusion in their study of Keynesian policies during the 1930s:

"(FDR's) interventionist policies and draconian tax increases delayed full economy recovery by several years by exacerbating a climate of pessimistic expectations that drove down private capital formation and household consumption to unprecedented lows."

Sound familiar? It should. Others, ranging from economic historian Amity Shlaes to economist Robert Higgs, tell the same story.

Today, Obama is following a script eerily similar to the one followed by Hoover and FDR: He wants to spend wildly, raise taxes on all Americans, erect trade barriers and protect unions, his biggest supporters, to boost their wages at others' expense.

The only difference this time is the Fed has refused to let the money supply contract by a third, as it did during the Depression, deepening the economy's collapse.

The hole in which we find ourselves is the result of bad policy responses to a short-term financial crisis. We'll pay for it with an enfeebled economy for years to come.

And if, as Krugman believes, we are about to enter a global depression, it's only because our policymakers were foolish enough to take his advice.

Dear Earth,

I'm beginning to realize that LiveJournal is slowly being killed by micro-blogging, ala Twitter and Facebook updates. What was once a great art form, the free form amateur blog, is now going the way of the convection oven and pet rocks. To help put the final nail in the coffin, I am fully considering retiring my LiveJournal at the conclusion of my 2000th post, which is less than 75 away. As social networking dominates Web 2.0, we begin to lose the foundations upon which they were built. The question remains, does the Internet behave like the world, where the lack of a cornerstone causes the collapse of an institution or is it more like a game of Jenga, mystical in it's ability to stay upright in the most trying of situations? Only time will tell.

Sincerely,

Vince Rollins

A comment from HuffPo:

I'm a liberal because...

I'm special and therefore feel entitled to other people's money. I also believe everybody's equal.

I believe everybody should live together; whites, blacks, muslims. I live in a white suburb.

I believe that Tibet should be free. I also believe that freedom is overrated.

I believe in global warming and that capitalism is destroying the planet. I just bought a new Mac. Macs are cool! And btw, I'm flying to Paris this summer!

I believe that public transportation is the future because cars are destroying the environment. I have a car.

I believe certain words should be banned and the internet censored. I felt oppressed under the Bush administration.

I believe the Capitalists are exploiting third world child workers. I'm a trendy person and I always wear the latest fashion.

I think Jon Stewart is funny. I think Tina Fey is Sarah Palin.

I believe that I understand everything. I don't know anything.
