Well, it seems that the opposite of “Going Galt” may mean eating someone else’s lunch further down the food chain:

"Going Galt" – from the book Atlas Shrugs.  It means to not allow others, especially Greedy Politicians, take advantage of your talent, time, and work ethics simply to take from you to give to others.  The solution is to merely stop working – which has a REAL desultory effect on those that have grown accustomed to sucking off the Government teat when the milk dries up.

Frankly, Obama has been using Alinsky’s Rules in his "fundamentally tranform the United States" by demonizing Wall Street.  I’m not going to get into the Right / Wrongs here of it, but what Progressives and Liberals never seem to understand that systems are dynamic.  They believe that if they tinker with a "system" (er, that would be us), only THEIR changes will take effect – they never seem to account that the rest of us will dynamically adjust to those changes, often in ways not forseen by those same Politicians and bureaucrats and launching yet more instances of The Law of Unintended Consequences (yet another reason for limited government: it negatively disturbs less of the system than otherwise).  Now, this email (H/T: NRO) is going around and it basically is "Going Shark":

If we are being thrown off the top of the financial pyramid by Obama, then we’ll just outwork you and take your meal."

It may be that we’ll be able to blame Obama for yet another set of woes that he has caused – intentionally by accident (emphasis mine):

We are Wall Street. It’s our job to make money. Whether it’s a commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it doesn’t matter. We would trade baseball cards if it were profitable. I didn’t hear America complaining when the market was roaring to 14,000 and everyone’s 401k doubled every 3 years. Just like gambling, its not a problem until you lose. I’ve never heard of anyone going to Gamblers Anonymous because they won too much in Vegas.

Well now the market crapped out, & even though it has come back somewhat, the government and the average Joes are still looking for a scapegoat. God knows there has to be one for everything. Well, here we are.

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. We get up at 5am & work till 10pm or later. We’re used to not getting up to pee when we have a position. We don’t take an hour or more for a lunch break. We don’t demand a union. We don’t retire at 50 with a pension. We eat what we kill, and when the only thing left to eat is on your dinner plates, we’ll eat that.

For years teachers and other unionized labor have had us fooled. We were too busy working to notice. Do you really think that we are incapable of teaching 3rd graders and doing landscaping? We’re going to take your cushy jobs with tenure and 4 months off a year and whine just like you that we are so-o-o-o underpaid for building the youth of America. Say goodbye to your overtime and double time and a half. I’ll be hitting grounders to the high school baseball team for $5k extra a summer, thank you very much.

So now that we’re going to be making $85k a year without upside, Joe Mainstreet is going to have his revenge, right? Wrong! Guess what: we’re going to stop buying the new 80k car, we aren’t going to leave the 35 percent tip at our business dinners anymore. No more free rides on our backs. We’re going to landscape our own back yards, wash our cars with a garden hose in our driveways. Our money was your money. You spent it. When our money dries up, so does yours.

The difference is, you lived off of it, we rejoiced in it. The Obama administration and the Democratic National Committee might get their way and knock us off the top of the pyramid, but it’s really going to hurt like hell for them when our fat a**es land directly on the middle class of America and knock them to the bottom.

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?

Smarter and a hardened work ethic.  Pretty much sums it up – a more competitive spirit than everyone else.  Decisions have consequences, and Obama and folks like Michigan Congressman Carl Levin (D) have made their decisions.  These folks above are merely reacting to it – dynamically.

How dynamic are you?
