John Derbyshire: coming out of his cave for a snack

On the National Review Online, a very cute bit of delusional, self-aggrandizing nonsense appears in John Derbyshire’s blog.  “The Derb” introduces this piece as if it were a random email circulating around Wall Street rather than a torrent of his very own personal bile.  After a few meandering opening remarks, we get to the heart of the matter:

“Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you’re only going to hurt yourselves. What’s going to happen when we can’t find jobs on the Street anymore? Guess what: We’re going to take yours.”

Yeah, you read that right. Wall Street is going to quit trading and steal all 150 million ordinary American jobs if it turns out they might have to follow some rules.

Apparently, Derb – sorry, I mean the “anonymous” writer of this “email” – is particularly keen on leading a bloodthirsty army of non-unionized workaholics into public schools where, in a fit of pique, they will become third grade teachers and work 17 hours a day for $85,000 a year.

I expect it might come as quite a shock when they take home their first paychecks only to find that  they’re only making half that, regardless of how many overtime hours they put in (just like all teachers, everywhere).

So, to recap:  if Obama regulates Wall Street, this elite team of sociopathic triple-A personalities will stride into the workplace of Joe Public and offer to do his job for double the average wage, simultaneously boycotting any existing collective negotiating body with a snowball’s chance in hell of convincing anybody anywhere to pay them one grubby shilling more than the going rate.

The “email” the Derb “found” sustains a frenzied level of ideological auto-fellatio throughout, eventually suggesting that the above-mentioned migration of Wall Street traders would be enough to completely crush the entire middle class, establishing a new economic order with former Wall Street traders who now do landscaping at the top (still) and the people who used to do landscaping before they were crushed at the bottom (still).

For a final salvo,

“We aren’t dinosaurs. We are smarter and more vicious than that, and we are going to survive. The question is, now that Obama & his administration are making Joe Mainstreet our food supply…will he? and will they?”

Yes, you heard that right.  They’re not just going to steal our jobs, they’re going to eat us.

Look out!  John Derbyshire smells brains, and you can bet your lazy hippie ass they aren’t his!
