I really hope he goes through with his tea party event.

Edit: He just said he is definitely going to do it.

I think I'm going to write a paper on my opinion of SCOTUS soon. I will post it here if I do.


I know you're all now dying with anticipation.

I'm pretty sure a top tier UFC fighter could take a silverback gorilla, though.

I'm pretty sure you're crazy.

Wasn't this an OOT thread, by the way?

Yes. I'm mocking it.

I went back and reread it after Travis the chimp attacked that woman.

It was just as stupid now as it was back then.

If it makes you feel better at least the value of their fixed income is probably going to drop significantly in the next couple years.

Re: ***February Low Content Thread***

Absolutely brilliant exposition of the ABCT.

I wish I was half that clear and concise.
In recent years academics have come to acknowledge the ineffectiveness of New Deal programs, but have largely failed to come to terms with the New Deal’s role in extending and deepening the downturn. Saying that government intervention was ineffective in bringing the economy out of the Depression is like saying that despite repeated blows to the head, the patient failed to regain consciousness: It’s true enough, but evades the problem of causality.

Re: ***February Low Content Thread***

I think a lot of you would enjoy this blog (I've had the guy for like 4 classes in law school):

http://lawprofessors.typepad.com/business_law/

Here's an excerpt from today that I think is right on the money:

"Now that the new Administration's economic proposals are trickling out we can add them all up and see who is taking it on the chin, who is getting played for the sucker. The old advice for players at the poker table holds: If you do not know who the sucker at the table is, it is you. Our economic system runs on voluntary compliance linked to cultural norms, not fear of getting caught and prosecuted. The cultural norms, in pre-PC days, used to be called the Protestant Work Ethic or the like. People who put themselves in position to find work and earn some income, did not over-spend their budget, bought and paid for a home they could afford, saved a bit for their children are the suckers. They will pay for others who did over-spend and saved nothing. They will pay in increased taxes, both in income and estate taxes (and their social security repayments will be means tested), and in inflation (their savings will be eaten up by inflation). Those who voluntarily complied with the rules and lived within their means are the suckers."
