Dear Readers: The Goddess of Capitalism is pleased to announce a new Blogroll category – Capitalist Hero. To this new category, I add Chandler’s Watch.
I had the pleasure of working with Tommy Chandler at several Southern California Tax Revolt Coaltion, LLC events, and he is a true patriot and a smart capitalist. Chandler’s Watch is also an Internet Radio Talk Show (for podcasts, click HERE). Chandler’s Watch, The Radio Show, was born in 2007 by two Marines that wanted to fulfill their oath to defend this country against all enemies, both foreign and domestic and to preserve our US Constitution. The specific broadcast times are as follows:
* Monday through Friday from 7pm to 8pm PST; broadcast link at www.blogtalkradio.com/Chandler
* As part of the Grizzly Groundswell Network: The program airs Sunday nights at 5pm tp 6pmPST at at www.blogtalkradio.com/GrizzlyGroundswell
* Podcasting section on is still under development; go to www.chandlerswatch.com/podcasts/
I also wanted to introduce Protein Wisdom. Any blog that can combine Egyptology with current events while quoting Shakespeare is a worthy addition to the Shrine of Flaming Capitalism. The piece I am quoting today reviews the heretic Pharaoh’s reign and contrasts it with Obama. If you are of a scholarly mind, Behind the Cult of Obama, and Its Future is a wonderful read. Here is a sample:
Throughout Anthony and Cleopatra, Octavius, later Augustus, is represented as a kind of implacably impersonal historical inevitability, and a conservative one, at that. The poetry is all Antony’s. Whatever we may think of them as realities, President and Mrs. Obama have been garlanded and infused with a great romanticism. When the implacable force of the economy dashes them, though, we can be sure that the contours of their enduring appeal to the vanquished will resemble that of the main characters of Shakespeare’s play. I imagine it’s a foregone conclusion that A&C will be recast for the Obamas. And they will be recalled most fondly for the music of what never happened, blame it on whom you will.
