Their leadership is out in full force today in their mouthpiece organ, Greenwich Time.
Jonathan Perloe (says here he’s a member of the Democrat Town Committee) wants mandatory registration of all guns (a prelude to confiscation) a ban on really, really huge cartridge magazines, like ten, a ban on “guns that look like they’re real machine guns but aren’t” and who knows what else – I assume he’s a stalking horse for that other Democrat group, Connecticut Action Against Gun Violence which seeks confiscation of all weapons. All this would be as useful and as painless, Perloe claims, as the TSA security checks at airports.
Bill Gaston, identified as Francis Fudrucker’s butt boy (technically, he’s in charge of vice) sees interest rates currently running below the official inflation rate and cries, “free money, forever!” He advocates spending like mad now and ten years down the road, when interest rates have fallen still farther to negative 5%, we can borrow more.
This is what passes for financial sophistication among Greenwich Democrats:
….[C] onsider that current interest rates are below the rate of inflation. This means we can borrow right now at a negative real interest rate! The market will pay us to borrow money! We can pay back the principal on the loan ten years hence, when our economy will be richer and the burden of paying back the loan will be lessened. What’s not to like about the borrowing option?
So, profligate spending, destruction of constitutional rights and a display of economic ignorance that would shame a Head Start pupil. Pretty good work for just one day.
