I don't read the local rags so wouldn't know, surely someone is whinging about foreign "talents"* again today.

(*""s as it's their term, not anyone else's)

I'm sure the whining continues unabated, but in the meantime, what do you make of this? From the WSJ no less...

It is soooo vulgar, but hey this seems to be a dream and priority for the nouveau-riche Sgns.




p.s. I don't know if I've ever quoted the bible before, but hey ho... :)

"I love it when people who consider themselves morally superior advocate for central planning schemes over free markets. 1. They don't understand markets 2. They resent freedom and 3. They hurt the very ones at the bottom that they espouse to protect."

Is socialism effective in helping to lift up the entire population :-k ?

I think it is a form of escape. From the mundaneness of everday life......... for these mega wealthy. It is not real and has no holding power.
