No, I think you missed the point.

Entrepreneurs may approach an idea from a variety of angles. One might be "I have an idea, how can I make it happen?" I think that is what you are thinking of.

The other sort of idea is "Man, all those wasted resources lying around, how can I put them to work to make me money?" That's the unused labor pool.

Let me put it his way...JD Rockefeller not only drilled his own oil, he also refined his own oil and transported it.

Refining of oil left a huge amount of waste, a toxic sludge.

Rockefeller took a look at that pile of sludge and said "There has got to be a way to make money off of toxic sludge." So, he put together a team of scientists to study the sludge and expermient with it to make something commercially marketable.

Now...we all tar our driveways and cinderblock basements. That's the sludge.

We are all familiar with vaseline....that's the sludge.

Paraffin wax....yup...that's the sludge.

Rockefeller and his chemists came up with something on the order of 300 marketable products from that sludge, which other oil companies just dumped into rivers and landfills. So, Rockefeller's greed and imagination helped make the oil industry more environmentally friendly.

That was the genius of Rockefeller.

Now, Rockefeller was a bad guy...his whole fucking family are evil, in fact....but JD Rockefeller is a case study in successful entreprenuership and free market mechanics.

So Baron's plan is to turn those displaced workers in to Vaseline. Seems a bit extreme personally but maybe he's on to something...

Seems to me like we're in for some pretty big Juggalo gatherings once ICP open their eyes and see these swathes of people just lying around waiting to be exploited... Or Vaseline, lots of Vaseline. Should make Tyra Banks happy at least?

Most definitely. Been watching the polls?

Democrats aren't exactly going in the right direction.

Didn't you spend all of the last election cycle ranting about poll reliability?

Yeah, and I still think there is a leftist bias reflected in the polls, so I haven't changed.

The D's are going to need a better message than "We hate Trump," or "We want to roll back your tax cuts", and they are going to need better spokespersons than Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, and Hillary Clinton. Every time one of the 3 witches open their mouths, the Dems lose votes.

Which is fine with me, I'm just pointing out the obvious.

My sense is that dems likely don't take back anything, but it's not going to be the blood letting you seem to think.

So, look at actual results.

Republicans Lost Support in Every Special Election Since Trump Became President

Have Democrats gained 50 seats formerly held by Republicans since Trump was elected?

Oh, we're probably pretty close in our assessment right now.

But....the dems were 15 points up just a few months ago. Therein lies the damning evidence.

Things can still change....4 months is a lifetime in politics....but the clock is ticking.
