    Soooo.............wait. You mean you throw hundreds of thousands of government employees out of work and the stock market goes UP?

    Author’s reply » So far. I woke up, read, watched the sunrise, drank some coffee, ate some oatmeal, played catch with my son as he waited for the bus, biked the long route to work, and have been trying to allocate capital thoughtfully. All the time, I've lacked the nagging feeling that the two millionth federal bureaucrat was not on station centrally planning my every move. It is much as if we can go on about our private lives in peace, managing our own affairs on our own property without central commanders and controllers intervening.

    Your thoughts embody Thomas Jefferson's ideals in short; although I suspect that you and Alexander Hamilton would be in opposition.

    Chris, you're starting to sound like one of those lunatic libertarians.


    Keep up the good work!

    A third less Federal employees would be nice. And eliminating all the lawyers although we need not kill them first as per Shakespeare.
