This week in Libertarian Billionaire Dingbat net TV

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle, WhiteManistan at 2:17 pm by George Smith

More fresh and hot from the Culture of Lickspittle, via Peter Thiel, who according this blog’s archives can always be counted on for the best in witless bon mots:

You know, we landed on the moon in July of 1969. Woodstock started three weeks later, and with the benefit of hindsight, that’s when progress ended, and the hippies took over the country. Today the counterculture is to believe in science and technology.

And this is, of course, why, every business section in the country is lauding the new and boring business management secrets book by Eric Schmidt and some other guy from Google this week, two middle-aged nerd white guys who stand by their bicycles and look almost exactly alike.

Because, you know, the hippies took over and the billionaires of Google, PayPal and Facebook are the counter-culture. And Peter Thiel was two when that happened.


Peter Thiel — from the archives.

    Amazon is a perfect example of company that needs to be broken up by the government. It’s been caught red-handed in the press punishing authors of Hatchette books and anyone else that it considers to be bad-mouthing the empire of Bezos by manipulations on its page now that it controls 50 percent of the book market.

    And that doesn’t even begin to describe the odious qualities of Amazon. It’s warehouse worker predation, well documented, has not still been addressed, only showing the company ignores criticism and the government.

    I would have made today’s post longer but had to go off and actually help someone in a bad situation. If I’d been longer I would have rhetorically, again, asked, what’s with Peter Thiel? He seems to believe he’s up their with the dudes who defeated smallpox and came up with the answers to polio and cholera.

    No, no, no, the real problem with the country is hippies took over. It’s good prima facie evidence that he made his fortune through sheer luck.

    Hippies in our corporate dictatorship. It’s to laugh.
