You may or may not know who Friedman is. If you don’t, he’s a statist “economist’ on the payroll of the NY TImes and writes of how China is better at solving problems than are we, and that he wishes we could be China for a day.
He complains about the Tea Party movement, fantasizing it to be filled with bigots, white trash, mean-spirited racists, etc., etc. This ,of course, without ever having attended a Tea Party Rally. (I have, they’re fun, people of all races are enjoying themselves, there’s no bigotry or meanness at all on display -all MSM hogwash, naturally.
Anyway, turns out Friedman last week was riding Amtrak to DC. His laptop was open and his trash was on his table. Some “Working man” – an Amtrak employee was doing his job, removing trash from the tables. But he wasn’t fast enough for MR Friedman.
And remember – Friedman is a leading propagandizer of the party that “supports” the “working class.”
I’d hate to see how this Amtrak working man would have been treated if Friedman did NOT support the “working class.” WIth friends like Tom……
