"The wealthy, not only by private fraud but also by common laws, do every day pluck and snatch away from the people some part of their daily living. Therefore, when I consider and weigh in my mind these commonwealths which nowadays do flourish, I perceive nothing but a certain conspiracy of rich men in procuring their own commodities under the name and authority of the commonwealth.

They invent and devise all means and crafts, first how to keep safely without fear of losing that which they have unjustly gathered together, and next how to hire and abuse the work and labor of the people for as little money and effort as possible."

Arthur Silber Returns

And not a moment too soon. Silber weighs in on the Barockstar's underwhelming, yet throughly predictable choice for a running mate, Senator Joe Biden.

It shall be an interesting campaign with these two. Although Silber does not say, or recommend, who Obama should have chosen. Perhaps in his next piece he will.

The only thing more interesting will be whom McShame picks as v.p.

McShame can be counted on to select someone equally deranged.
