FUNDAMENTAL TRUTH #46: “Liberals say ‘do as I say not as I do’ because they can’t point to anything worthwhile they’ve done.” -Old Pithy

The Professors Teaching our Kids are Long-Haired, Maggot-Infested, Flower-Child Hippies who Hate Capitalism

Liberals are know-it-all smarty-pants that want to fix everything.  Even the things that aren’t broken.  Because they are so full of themselves that they just know how to do everything better than anyone else.  Even though they have jack squat experience in the things they’re fixing.  And this is why liberals are destroying this country.

Liberals hate capitalism.  Because no one is in charge.  No one to make things work better.  Or more efficiently.  So they butt in.  Even though few of them have ever run a business.  Or had a real job.  They know absolutely nothing about business or commerce.  But they went to college.  Where they learned nothing useful.  Got a degree in one of the social sciences.  And then set out to make the world a ‘better place’.  All based on what some old, long-haired, maggot-infested, flower-child hippy from the 1960s told them in those useless social science classes.  And those hippies hate capitalism.  When they were young, all they wanted was for Dad to pay their tuition so they could stay stoned and screw their way through college.  They loved it so much they never left college.  They became ‘professors’.  In some useless social science program.

And they’re teaching our kids today.  Keeping the spirit of the 1960s alive.  Kids graduate without a clue of what capitalism is or what it has done for Western Civilization.  But their professors told them capitalism is bad.  That it isn’t fair.  That they should hate it.  And the only way to make capitalism fair and efficient is to get as much government as possible into it.  These students then do as their told.  And become good liberals.

Liberals are like Addicts in Need of a Fix

So these kids graduate from college programmed to disdain capitalism.  And they do.  They see market forces working freely without government intervention and they get that craving.  Like an addict in need of a fix.  Or a smoker stuck in a smoke-free building craving a cigarette.  And there’s only one way they can calm themselves.  By intervening.

Once upon a time, a long way from here, I worked in a small business.  There was the boss.  He sold and ran operations.  There was his wife who helped out part time when the kids were in school.  And there was me who did everything else in the office.  Sales were increasing.  The business was growing.  We were getting busy.  And I was working late.  Work piled up on my desk.  And it bothered the boss.  He thought it was me.  I was just not working fast enough.  So he went to some business seminar at a local bookstore and bumped into a consultant.  And he hired him.

The consultant was married to a CFO at some big company.  He stayed at home to raise their son.  And consulted.  He used to run the family business (he took over after his dad died).  But after he bankrupted that, he went back to school to get his MBA.  Got a perfect grade point average.  Smart guy.  But he was only good at going to school.  Well, that, and bankrupting businesses. 

Those who Can, Do.  Those who Can’t, Consult.

He started by timing me doing some tasks.  He actually sat beside me with a stopwatch.  Confirmed that I was working too slow.  Came up with some new procedures.  They might have worked in the corporate world they talk about in those MBA courses.  But small business is a different beast.  There’s a lot of ‘seat of your pants’ stuff.  Thinking on the fly.  Sort of like being a Marine.  You have to adapt, innovate and overcome.  Throughout the day.  You just can’t sit on your ass and come up with one-size-fits-all procedures.

But that’s what he did.  And the boss implemented them.  And I worked later into the night.  Some of the tasks worked well with the new procedures.  A lot didn’t.  And to make those tasks fit the new procedures took an inordinate amount of time.  I lost a lot of time elsewhere, too.  He created an Excel spreadsheet for the boss to use for sales forecasting.  The hours he had in developing this spreadsheet totaled $5,000.  And it didn’t work.  I actually debugged it (when you crunch numbers in a small business, a good spreadsheet program becomes your best friend).  Then, when it was working, the boss didn’t use it.  It was too complicated.  The boss was a successful entrepreneur, but he barely graduated high school.  And he never used that spreadsheet.

This consultant’s father was a successful entrepreneur.  He built a successful business.  He was good.  His son was not.  He enjoyed growing up with money.  He never learned a good work ethic.  He never learned the business.  And he destroyed everything his father built.  Sadly, not that uncommon when children take over the family business.  So what does a failed business owner do?  Why, consult, of course.

Good Intentions and Unintended Consequences

This guy was a liberal.  When he found out I was a conservative he had to discuss politics.  To flaunt his brilliance (that perfect GPA).  And condescend to me.  Because I was a conservative.  And he was an elitist.  Who married a rich woman (before he bankrupted the family business).  And lived in one of the most exclusive and affluent neighborhoods.  He never had a real job.  And the only business he tried failed.  He never had to work in his life (first a rich dad then a rich wife).  He had no business experience (at least, none of the good kind).  This guy had no business telling people how to run their businesses.  But he did.

What’s the difference between him and the liberals in Congress?  Not a whole hell of a lot.  They’re both liberal know-it-all smarty-pants.  With no experience in what they’re consulting/legislating.  And they both leave a swath of destruction in their wake.  They both put on their pants the same way.  The only real difference is that when the consultant puts on his pants he bankrupts companies.  When politicians put theirs on they bankrupt the nation.

Business people know how to run businesses.  Politicians don’t.  At least most on the left don’t.  But that doesn’t stop them.  They just have to step in and try to fix things.  To flex those egos.  They can’t help it.  It’s who they are.  They’re just so full of themselves.  Liberals.  They always start with the best of intentions.  But end up crapping unintended consequences all over the place.
