Today’s Daily Wisdom (Listen To The Children)

We’ll let this video from Crony Chronicles serve as the Daily Wisdom today.  It’s pitch-perfect: H/T:  Moe Lane

Tom Morello Brings The Irony

So Tom Morello doesn’t like Paul Ryan.  Fine, that’s well within his rights.  This isn’t really so much about what he said as it is about the fascinating and completely amusing irony that it’s Tom Morello saying it.  (Some might say “hypocrisy”, but I’ll stick with “irony” to keep this lighter.) Morello, for the uninitiated, […]

Paul Ryan’s Medicare “Cuts” And Washington Math

Now that Paul Ryan is the VP pick for Romney, the Democrats are revving up the demagoguery machine on the “Draconian” Medicare “cuts” from Paul Ryan’s 2011 budget proposal.  However, to come to this conclusion, a unique form of Washington math called “baseline budgeting” is required.  For the uninitiated, let’s explain how this works… When […]

Today’s government and […]

Today’s Daily Wisdom (Government Strikes Out)

Being the sports fan that I am, I appreciate Thomas Sowell combining it with the economy in his column today.  It’s a brilliant piece about how we analyze sports and politics totally differently, and that we might be better off if we looked at income statistics the way we look at sports statistics.  It’s hard […]
