Parading Victims

No crime in the the United States draws as much punishment as hurting someones feelings, especially if that someone is a protected species.  The act of parading the parents of Khizr Khan onto the stage at the Democratic convention was much more low rent than anything Trump has done in return. Hillary intentionally used these people as a way to attack Trump in such a manor that he couldn’t counter attack. We are in a sick land when Trump’s comments are considered worse than outright crimes by his opponent, when the crimes are really what got the soldier killed.

We have the media, the billionaires club and organized crime trying to rig the election. Anyone who looks can see what is going on. They spend twenty four hours per day intensely looking for anything negative on Trump.  The average billionaire would not be a billionaire without the privilege of using government as a tool to soak the American Public. I don’t know why Trump is running for president but he is not part of the club. They hate him.

Trump has to respond to attacks regardless of who is doing the attacking. Had he not dealt with Khizer Kahn’s parents he would be inundated with the same thing endlessly. Once Trump apologizes for anything, he is out of the race.

Years ago, when I was a teenager, I spent a few weeks at a boxing gym. I remember something the coach said that stuck with me. He had to guys in the ring and one of them was acting timid. To paraphrase, the coach said, “I see the problem, you are afraid you are going to make that guy mad and he is going to hit you even harder. He is going to hit you as hard as he possibly can no matter what you do.”

Once Trump takes a punch, he is going to get hundreds just like it. Being politically correct and not dealing with the Khizr Khan issue would have ended up much worse for Trump. I am guessing Trump knows the difference between a conversation and a fight. There is no point in trying to make a friend out of someone whose only goal is to destroy you.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
