Leaked CIA Memo: use Obama as puppet for continued war support

March 29, 2010 – Comments (7)

Investors are ignoring the possibility of bad news on the war front. I wrote about that here.  First off, I don't wish for troop deaths. Let me remind you that I served in the Marines and it wasn't so long ago that people I served with are not in harm's way.  My politics aside, I want good things for our troops.  But you know my politics already.  [more]

March 27, 2010 – Comments (12)

Tax money well spent.  This is government regulation in a nutshell.  Without proper cost accounting, which can only happen in a competitive market with property rights, fraud and incompetence reign.  [more]

Perhaps Sometimes Water Flows Up

March 25, 2010 – Comments (26)

My biggest failure in writing these blogs is that I haven't delved into some of the deeper problems and philosophies that make economics such an unusual and difficult science.  At first, I didn't think there would such an audience for this kind of discussion, not here or anywhere.  However, you continue to prove me wrong, and so let's look at some of the background issues that plague economics.  This is a long post. You have been warned.  [more]

NeoCon Economics: We Need More Communism!

March 20, 2010 – Comments (7)

Lost in the daily enjoyment of ridiculing Liberal hacks like Paul Krugman and his little sister Brad DeLong, I almost forgot that there is far more evil source of economic illiteracy: The Neo-Conservative.  [more]

March 12, 2010 – Comments (18)

England is spiraling into a complete socialist hellhole.  Anyone who has traveled through Heathrow in the past five years is nodding solemnly at that statement.    [more]

The Peter Gibbons School of Economics

March 07, 2010 – Comments (8)

When Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston) wasn't hammering out TPS reports or watching Kung Fu with his soulmate Joanna (played by the lovely Jennifer Aniston), he was plotting the downfall of the evil Initech Corporation.  Peter and his buddies, Micheal Bolton and Samir Nagheenanajar, would plant a computer virus in Initech's accounting software that would take the fractional remainder of the company's banking transactions and siphon them off into an account they had set up. If they caper worked, they would be set for life and no one would ever know the money was missing. The movie, Office Space (1991), became an instant classic and remains one of my favorites.  [more]

A Greek Socialist Tragedy: Who's the Selfish One Now?

March 04, 2010 – Comments (9)

Here's an interesting article I came across at the Washington Times. It's not just President Obama sending us on this course.  They all are.  Vote them all out now or pay later, especially the Senate.  Disgusting animals, all of them.    [more]

I Have My Limits

March 04, 2010 – Comments (17)

When it comes to listening or reading bad economics, I have my limits.  I have thought about penning daily responses to the various bootlicking hacks that operate in the blogosphere, most notably Krugman's little sister Berkeley economist Brad DeLong.  Too bad I have discovered there is a limit to how much nonsense I can take.  [more]
