The GOP seems to no longer be the "party of business", but a mad-dog populist gang that is running around chucking sticks of dynamite in all directions. -- Noah Smith
OK - a dynamite stick isn't exactly the first thing you might think of when "fireworks" is mentioned. But it does make a big flash and go "BOOM!"
Happy 4th of July, and remember Independence Day has somethin' or other to do with freedom, as we stumble blindly along - at the behest of mad-dog populists -towards corporate serfdom.
And there's more than a touch of irony here, since the independence of the Fed is just one more thing to be blown up.
