  • Is This a Joke?

    Posted by James R. Rummel on November 14th, 2008 (All posts by )

    I could have sworn that someone was pulling my leg when I read this post over at Six Meat Buffet. No one could possibly imagine that I could be taken in by some tall tale of a socialist restaurant where the patrons pay what they think is fair, or “what they could afford”.

    The only problem is that it doesn’t look like it was a hoax. The restaurant managers weren’t even bothering to pay attention to their daily expenses!

    I’m in the wrong business. There has got to be a way to fleece liberals that don’t even understand basic market forces!

    What about if I become a progressive investment consultant who uses visions that come to me while listening to Joan Baez songs? Think I can get any takers on that?

      There are always some reactionary counter-revolutionaries seeking to destroy revolutionary gains. All that is needed is to re-educate the customers so that they show the proper revolutionary fervor.

      It’s called The Market. That’s why liberal governmental policies are so dead set against it.

      From the article:

      I wonder if its failure will gain equal attention…

      No?

      Me neither.
