Oath of disloyalty
Listening to George W. Gore's press conference. Mostly the usual futile attempts at cleverness by a man who is incapable of cleverness.
One astonishingly honest revelation: "Dow Jones Man" asked George if he was concerned about the increasing number of large financial institutions being bought by foreign and unfriendly governments. George W. Gore said "No, I'm happy to have the money coming back. I'm not troubled at all."
It's not often you hear a Federal employee state so baldly and openly that he is fully loyal to Arabia and China.
Will anyone do anything about it? No, of course not.
J. Edgar is spinning so fast that pieces of his ghost are flying off into distant parts of the universe.

Less sardonically: This is what happens when you follow purely numerical economics, what is sometimes called 'autistic economics'. When the only thing that matters is increasing the flow of monetary units, you can't even imagine the real troubles or benefits that may be caused by one specific transaction
between two specific countries or companies.
Money moves, so everything is wonderful in this most wonderful of all worlds. Bah.
