Lunch Links

  • .…bankrupt America!
  • Sacramento man twice arrested and jailed in a case of mistaken identity, despite the fact that he’s four inches taller than the man police wanted, that he’s black and the other guy is white, and that they have different last names.
  • Another crime lab under review.
  • New study looks at disclosure rules and regulation of government-to-government lobbying. Surprise! Governments aren’t nearly as concerned with how they spend money (that is, your money) lobbying than they are with how people spend their own money lobbying.
  • Why, when I was a kid, just to get to school we had to . . . okay, you win.

    La Rana, you might want to try this site. http://mises.org/

    I would start with “Human Action”, and “Road to Serfdom” is also a good read. The beauty part is you can download the PDF files for free and read them if your that cheap. You will need a dictionary, considering your reading level is what 6th., 7th. grade?

    Oh…if you prefer cartoons theres this. http://mises.org/books/TRTS/

    Dude – my point is that you are simply parroting these words around without paying any attention to what they mean, on the ostensible belief that a descriptive term is definitive and foreswears any actual analysis (which is ironic, since you are the one pretending to understand econ). So you respond that other people also use those words. Awesome. And completely. missing. the. point.

    Here’s a great “professional courtesy” story for ya! A police chief got doped up on prescription painkillers, drove his city-owned vehicle to a topless bar, proceeded to consume at least 11 alcoholic beverages there, tried to drive home, wrecked his car, and the assistant chief stepped in to cover up the investigation.

    Yep. It’s the ruination of the world..oooohhhh. Healthcare for all. Another round of healthcare for my friends..even the Republican one’s. Obama is going to ruin us. Nothing to do with Bush & his stupid misdirectedl wars & stupid tax breaks. Health care gonna ruin us, everyone has care at the emergency room.
    Best care in the world. Phffffft!!

    Americanadian, you’ll be hardpressed to find anyone on this site (and that certainly includes the owner/author) who would defend Bush’s fiscal policies or what he spent money on.

    That doesn’t change the fact that your children just inherited another massive debt and another unfunded mandate.

    So I’m sorry that the news of fiscal irresponsibility Radley is talking about is… you know, current. Wait, no, not sorry.

    PR, the money is already spent whether you have Obamacare or not. If Obamacare works as proposed it should lower health care costs. Allowing people to get cut off of insurance coverage because of “pre existing conditions”, allowing insurance companies to jack up rates even with record profits & thinking emergency care for a large part of the population is a plan is criminal.
    Why do all countries with socialized coverage have higher life expectancies than this country? By the way, not my children. I’ll retire to Canada after making my millions here.
