Cheap Gas, Low Wages
June 1967 gas was 19.9/gallon in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.

The problem with knowing everything is learning nothing.

If you don't know what you're doing, find someone who does, and do what they do.

I learn slowly through trial and error but I also am intuitive beyond what most critical thinkers dare not do. Granted I am anxious yet fascinated by doomsday prognostications for reasons yet unknown. It feels good thinking that the majority of people do not see what I see. My challenge now is figuring out what if anything I actually DO see. So lets keep talking.

I think Percy has done a fine job of showing the error in your economic thinking, as Ringo has shown your limited understanding of Christianity so I will not cover those topics here. Rather I would like to point out this the above sounds just like Donald Trump. Essentially you are saying your mental abilities far exceed our meager talents and that your intuition is more valuable than their knowledge, Like Trump, you are also claiming more insight into any subject than all PhDs ever without having to read, directly study, or take formal coursework.

Your case should be studied as a classic example of the Dunning-Kruger effect.

We already have Mike the Wiz claiming the mantle of Wiley E, Coyote, super-genius, we don't need two.
