NYC Hyline Park Hater Alert


This was a pretty entertaining read. James Howard Kunstler, an author, lays into Americans and infrastructure planning in this country:

One of Kunstler’s consistent themes is that America has become a nation of juvenile-minded people who live in a fantasyland of cultural distraction and have forgotten how to do real stuff. We’re good at getting creative tattoos and minutely calculating the social implications of our hairdos — but not so good at the hard and relentless work of looking after the foundations of our society. We came into a vast amount societal capital, and like a spoiled trust fund kid sobering up after an epic binge, we’re starting to realize that we’ve burned through the inheritance and are going to have go get a job at Burger King or something.

Our Deal

The markets are crashing, thousands of people are losing their jobs and the government keeps funneling money into broken banks. This little blog will help explain why this is happening and how we fix it.

I'd like to preface this experiment with a contract between myself and my readers. My promise to you is that I will be civil, non-ideological, well researched and honest. In return, I only ask that you think.
