    Thunderstorm photo link.
    Some interesting debate in comments about how the US gov’t is co-opting reality and persecuting all freelancers. Spooky stuff…and completely unacceptable in a free and open society.

    Mitt Romney is a selfish jerk because he’s a corporate raider.

    Barack Obama is a mass murderer and a fascist who is funded by banks.

    So, I guess Lowes and Home Depot are obviously the most evil corporations ever to exist- not only have they run countless Mom-n-Pop hardware stores out of business by stocking a wide array of goods at very competitive prices, but they facilitate DIY construction, which robs union workers of their rightful jobs.

    As I keep saying – I can only presume that Romney is absolutely perfect given the supposed dirt that his opposition is able to dig up. This one takes the cake, though.

    Response to several items; 1) why didn’t the contractor become a millionaire himself and do the work for free for others less fortunate than himself. 2) thankfully the woman was not using the bedette she could have been eviscerated. 3) if they were pictures of white puffy clouds that looked like bunnies would the photographer been shot?

    That first link should inspire us all to open a discussion libertarians sorely need to face:

    Universal suffrage has failed. It’s time to start restricting the franchise again. The first category of persons excluded from the ballot box should be young men with stubble-beards who are “still trying to figure it all out”.

    We can enlarge the list from there. With any luck, when we’re finished the only people who are allowed to vote will be convicted drug offenders.

    “Grimes says his first step will be to get himself off the state’s sex offender registry.”

    Optimist.

    Thanks man, voting was a chore anyway.

  9. #9 |  karl | 

    I’m technically poor and have been for a long time but I still manage to live comfortably thanks to luck and frugality — and I’m voting for Obama (twice, if possible).

    That said, Romney building a walkway on his own is just fine and dandy — many people (well-off and not) just enjoy working, facing challenges, reaching goals, and the resulting sense of accomplishment.

    That said, sneaking popcorn into a theater to save a few bucks does start to make him look a little weird — I’ve don’t know anyone who does that.

  10. #10 |  DMS | 

    @3 Just wait til that person learns about the DIY channel on TV. Just think of how many jobs have been stolen by that channel teaching people to do things themselves…..of course it could also be argued that it has increased work by having people screw things up and then having to pay a professional to fix it ;)

    If I sent you a letter and said that your new book infringed various of my copyrights would you acquiesce in my use of copyright as a sword and withdraw the new book? Why or why not? Would it depend upon whether I filed a law suit, or would it not depend upon that?

  12. #12 |  karl | 

    Are we sure that the CNN “undecided idiot voter” and WSJ “latte tragedy” stories aren’t really from The Onion?

    That said, nonsense like this is leavened by the seriousness of the (yet another) photographer being questioned by the authorities. I think we’re supposed to be relieved that he wasn’t hauled downtown, but I sure am getting tired of reading about innocent people being told “you’re not a threat and you are doing a public service but just be careful next time.” What does that even mean?

    @karl: “That said, sneaking popcorn into a theater to save a few bucks does start to make him look a little weird — I’ve don’t know anyone who does that.”

    I’ve done it. Popcorn and candy. Not just because I’m cheap (though $7 for small pack of milk duds is really insane), but because the movie theater popcorn is awful.

    Then again, if I were a millionaire, I’d probably have a home theater setup that would rival most cineplexes.

  14. #14 |  albatross | 

    I don’t begrudge Mr failure-to-launch his life in his parents’ house or his vote, but I am a little curious why he was worth the time to do a detailed story on. I mean, okay, lots of people aren’t all that successful, but still have okay lives with cute girlfriends and comfortable living accomodations. Great.

    But wouldn’t it be more interesting to do a profile on his brother, the finance guy in a startup company? Or someone else actually doing something interesting and valuable, but not spectacular, in the world?

    I don’t think you’ll have to worry about Mr. Lives-Above-Mom’s-Garage voting. He doesn’t sound like he’s motivated enough to actually show up at the polls. Unless maybe Mom and Dad take him with them when they head over to the polls.

    @karl #9: That said, sneaking popcorn into a theater to save a few bucks does start to make him look a little weird — I’ve don’t know anyone who does that.

    People who have any problem with this have a problem with competition. If theaters didn’t charge exorbitant monopoly rents on concessions, there would be many fewer young pregnant women at movies. Who knows what I’m talking about? Yeah.

    Idiot at WaPo is merely repeating the Broken Window Fallacy. Romney (no endorsement of him ) saving money on a contractor doesn’t mean that money is withheld (hoarded in Keynesian terms), but means that the money will be spent elsewhere, or invested, or saved to be spent in the future.

  20. #20 |  Joshua | 

    The Romney story shows a truth that people don’t get about a lot of rich people..they are rich because they do the work themselves and are at times very cheap. Like that’s bad thing. What irks me most about those kinds of nonsense stories about Romney is they make me want to defend the man lol

  21. #21 |  marco73 | 

    The WAPO story sounds too silly to be serious.

    Romney is a bad person because he saved a couple dollars by doing some of his own home maintenance? Stop the presses! I did some home maintenance last weekend, with the help of my son and some materials from the local Lowes. I’m just waiting for some union goons to come over and break my kneecaps.

    But the second part – shopping at a convenience store to pick up some Perrier before going to the movies, that sounds more like an urban legend.
    I don’t know what convenience stores are around Romney’s favorite theater, but the one’s I frequent sure don’t carry cold Perrier in their cooler. Perrier is synonymous with “snobby rich guy’s drink”, so a snobby rich guy is cheap by bringing his own Perrier into the theater. Sure this isn’t an old story about Sam Walton, or Bill Gates, or Warren Buffet?

  22. #22 |  Personanongrata | 

    Hickory man found innocent after 24 years in prison

    This is justice for Willie Grimes?

    What happens to the cretinous thugs who while posing as police officers failed to question a half-dozen people who said Grimes was somewhere else when the rape happened. They also showed that two fingerprints found at the home where the rape happened were linked to another man, who has been charged with several rapes during the 1970s.?

    This must be the type of “police” investigation that the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Pat Gauen can get behind. Hell, if the sherrif says it is so, it must be so, evidence be damned.

  23. #23 |  Nancy Lebovitz | 

    The thing is, the Romney story is silly either way. DIY home improvement is not a moral issue. So far as I know, it was his campaign which claimed some virtue was shown because Romney and his sons built the deck.

    I suppose it’s good for a candidate to have some contact with the limits of the material world, but I wouldn’t say it’s a great big deal. Spending money or not on skilled work doesn’t prove anything.

  24. #24 |  Boyd Durkin | 

    Mitt Romney IS a jerk for doing manual labor himself (denying that work to hard-as-fuck-working hammer swingers). You know who else is a jerk? Scarlet Johansson, who adjusts her boobs many times during the day WITHOUT the help of a union boob adjusterer.

    In case you’re wondering, that article was the event horizon. No going back to anything resembling a discussion on the legitimacy or sanity of leftist/socialists.

    PS: Way to go Hugo! Good luck to my brothers in Caracas.

  25. #25 |  Boyd Durkin | 

    “He told me, ‘you’re not a threat and you are doing a public service but just be careful next time,’”

    Yes, that’s what my roommate said when he walked in on me banging a HUGE chick in college. But it is also the line from the thunderstorm photo story. Can someone from the FBI enlighten us on how to “more carefully take photos of thunderstorms”?

  26. #26 |  Weird Willy | 

    “People who have any problem with this have a problem with competition.”

    Not really, at least not in my case. I do, however, have a problem with people violating the express terms upon which they are allowed to enter and use other people’s property. I generally view the impulse to cheat or otherwise furtively glean surplus from others as a character flaw, and I definitely have a problem with it. If Mr. Romney does not wish to pay for and consume the fare offered in theaters and restaurants under the terms of the license by which he enters and occupies their premises, he is free either to do without or (in the true spirit of competition) go elsewhere.

  27. #27 |  Juice | 

    He played the game as best he could. In fall 2010, he landed a one-year gig as an athletic trainer and teacher at a boarding school an hour away, and he commuted there and back from his parents’ house. He liked the students but realized he wasn’t aching for that type of job. He watched a documentary online, “Lemonade,” about career climbers who’d been laid off in the recession and used the time to rediscover their passion through art, yoga, parenting, coffee roasting, running a small business — even changing genders.

    How can you do art, yoga, parenting, coffee roasting, and changing genders with no income?

  30. #30 |  Stormy Dragon | 

    Romney is a bad person because he saved a couple dollars by doing some of his own home maintenance?

    Per Riccardo’s Law (aka the law of comparative advantages), Romney actually lost money laying the sidewalk himself vs. paying someone else to do it and spending the same amount of time earning money via whatever his most economically efficient activity is.

  31. #31 |  ShelbyC | 

    @30, that depends on a few factors, including the utility of his time, transaction costs like taxes, etc.

  32. #32 |  a leap at the wheel | 

    #30 – Money, maybe, but I would bet not utility. I have a lawn mowing service come and mow my lawns. Then I work a bit extra to pay for it. I could also pay them to do my gardening and work for some time that is less than what I spend in the garden. But I like gardening and hate mowing the lawn.

  33. #33 |  Stormy Dragon | 

    #32 – If the enjoyment you get from gardening is actually enough that you get more utility from an hour of gardening than you do from an additional hour of work, then you should work less and start a part time job gardening for other people.

  34. #34 |  Meister574 | 

    Romney being “cheap”:
    Most rich people are notorious cheapskates. Their frugality is part of the reason they are rich and stay rich. Unlike someone who wins the lottery and is then broke in five years.

    I’m not a big fan of Romney, but his willingness to actually do some hard work is a plus for me.

  35. #35 |  SJE | 

    Plus, the utility to Romney is not solely in doing the work, but in signalling his willingness to get his hands dirty and volunteer his time.

    For example, he can talk all he likes about how much he has donated to charity (a lot), but it wont compete with a pictures of him with a hammer. It shows he is willing to help, no matter how rich.

    OTOH, the fact that Romney got a deferment from Vietnam to go on mission in France might have been a very good economic decision, and a way to ensure his intellectual assets were not ended by a VC bullet, but can be used as a signal that he is unwilling to really mix it up with the commoners.

  36. #36 |  Boyd Durkin | 

    he is unwilling to really mix it up with the commoners.

    Smart guy. I hate rubbing elbows with the Ed Hardy crowd. The “common man” is waaaaaaaaaaaay over rated. If you don’t agree, I’ll come over to your house for dinner and prove it.

  37. #37 |  Six | 

    Radley – This is something worth considering linking up. It’s not a perfect Ballot Initiative, but I think the real story is that the King County Sheriff supports it! Says something about the shifting political tides of legalization. http://www.q13fox.com/news/kcpq-report-king-county-sheriff-backs-i502-marijuana-decriminalization-on-ballot-20121001,0,7919187.story Side note – this ballot initiative could make in to a pretty good presidential debate question about how each will handle state-legalization……….

    @23 Neither is being a level 85 character in World of Warcraft. But some members of the Republican half of the Boot On Your Neck party are making it a campaign issue.

    @25 He should have told the Fan Belt Inspectors to go pound sand. Of course then he takes the risk of having the Hostage Roasting Team visit to burn the house down around him and his family.

    Never thought I’d say anything like this, but the story of Tyler the Undecided Hipster Weenie actually makes me nostalgic for the good ol’ days of thoughtful, deep-thinking yuppies.

    Photog should not have talked to the FBI agent. Any misstatement of fact to an FBI investigator is a felony.

    FBI: What time is it?
    Interviewee: It’s 12:30.
    FBI: It’s really 12:31. You are under arrest for felony misrepresentation.

    Best way to handle an FBI agent asking questions? Say you require a lawyer present for all interrogations and then DO NOT TALK.

  43. #43 |  Andrew Roth | 

    The First World Problems meme may be getting tired, but I’m not tiring of it. For one thing, it distracts me from the less developed problems that I deal with in Oregon, like doing unpaid farm work in exchange for a tent site and shower privileges on a property that doesn’t have a flush toilet. It also allows me to gloat at all the fools who waste their money on frou-frou falltimey bullshit like pumpkin spice lattes instead of getting a perfectly serviceable cup of Pike for $1.65 or making the rounds of the local convenience stores in search of the best hot chocolate (Arco has the best I’ve found around Ashland, but I’m open to suggestions, as long as they’re cheap).

    Moving on to Tyler York, I’m pretty sure that CNN published his profile as a piece of generational troll bait. That’s the kind of thing that I’d sooner expect from Salon, but it’s perfectly in line with CNN’s journalistic ethics, too. In fairness, this particular piece is more foolish than malicious, unlike some of the rot that Salon has published as troll bait.

    I took a brief look at the comments, and they were pretty much what I expected. Many were along the lines of “get a job, you posh bugger.” Others were from youngsters trying to reassure their elders that most of their cohort isn’t soft and sheltered like Tyler York. Basically, CNN found someone whose circumstances are perfect for stoking workaday resentment, then wrote a piece about him that used laughably blatant stylistic devices to embellish his privilege. (On the other hand, the really trollish parts of CNN’s readership, the ones who are itching for generational and class war, are probably too brain dead to notice that they’re being punked with something that verges on dime store fiction.) I hope CNN paid York for his trouble, because what he submitted to is the print journalism equivalent of a “Jackass” stunt.

    Having a fit of resentment over a twenty-something stranger being allowed to freeload at his parents’ place is unbecoming and ultimately corrosive to society. It does nothing to produce a stronger economy or more equitable economic policies. When CNN is the outlet abetting the resentment, it starts to look like part of a divide-and-conquer strategy, although it’s more likely a page view booster that happens to align with the goals of moneyed interests.

    These interests include division and conquest. Plutocrats would rather that the poor resent some apathetic bourgeois kid who’s allowed to freeload at home and crash by the pool than resent someone like Mitt Romney, who was raised in even more privileged circumstances (unless the Yorks hugely downplayed their own wealth) and has spent his career as a predatory asshole. Notwithstanding how handy Romney is around the house or how charitable he has been with people at church who have fallen on hard times (both of which I mostly believe), his professional life at Bain Capital was one of high-class vandalism. It is misleading to conflate the evisceration of productive companies by leveraged buyout artists with the genuine productivity of people like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. What Mitt Romney did for a living, a living that he apparently didn’t even need to make, was to buy up companies, force labor arbitrage on them with no consideration for the interests of their long-term employees, and then take the money and run off to the next sacking.

    With somebody like that running for the presidency on a platform replete with outright lies, I find it impossible to get my panties into a bunch over slacker kids who don’t want to get jobs. For one thing, it’s less competition for me at a time when I’m looking for paid work. Seriously, we should consider what voluntary withdrawal from the labor market by the well-to-do does to mitigate an already severe shortage of jobs. We also need to keep in mind that these slackers who “drink coffee for a living,” as a family friend says of Portland hipsters, aren’t preying upon anyone. It’s a sick people that turns on harmless slackers doing their own thing rather than telling off predatory assholes like Mitt Romney, who use their money to wreak havoc on the powerless.

  44. #44 |  H. Rearden | 

    #30 – Per Riccardo’s Law…

    Further proof that, while a useful subject, economics is not a true science.

  45. #45 |  H. Rearden | 

    If the enjoyment you get from gardening is actually enough that you get more utility from an hour of gardening than you do from an additional hour of work, then you should work less and start a part time job gardening for other people.

    Do you have any hobbies? I imagine that you’re a real drag around the office.

  46. #46 |  Andrew Roth | 

    Since I really dogged on Mitt Romney for being rich and sheltered in my last comment, I should mention that I have nothing against the wealthy doing their own home repairs, yard work, cooking, or whatever, particularly if they involve their children, which teaches the kids useful skills and helps them appreciate people who do physical labor for a living. My relatives, rich and poor alike, have shown me just how useful that kind of genuine self-reliance is.

    Things get hairy when frugality turns into stinginess and really hairy when money is used to manipulate and demean others. I’ve seen both of these problems in my own family, and they’re both likely problems for Mitt Romney. Actually, I’d say that the latter is a very obvious problem for Romney. The WaPo letter writer who chided the Romneys for not hiring a contractor used a terrible example and came across as a total jerk, but her overall point wasn’t far off the mark. I do not believe that Mitt Romney has the common sense to realize how fortunate he is or the sense of noblesse oblige that is proper for someone of his immense privilege. Those reasons alone are enough to convince me that he is unfit for the presidency.

  47. #47 |  Andrew Roth | 

    Re: #35:

    “OTOH, the fact that Romney got a deferment from Vietnam to go on mission in France might have been a very good economic decision, and a way to ensure his intellectual assets were not ended by a VC bullet, but can be used as a signal that he is unwilling to really mix it up with the commoners.”

    These deferments were motivated by cowardice, plain and simple. So was the tide of draft dodgers to Canada and Europe. The guys who got deferments weren’t concerned about their future utility to society; they were concerned about their not getting dead in a jungle.

    It was a reasonable concern. But the question to ask of the whole lot of them is how they feel about the deserters and the draft dodgers who didn’t get deferments. If they don’t agree that the guys who fled without permission were just doing what they had to do, they’re asshats.

  48. #48 |  Timmy Pea | 

    I remember reading this site back in 2008 and it was very pro Obama. You were in with Sullivan and Krugman at the Obama alter. I would say that up until a few days ago you were pro Obama with a wink to a sure loser Gary Johnson. Radley, where do we go to get back the last wasted 4 years? You worked yourself up into such a hatred for Bush that I seriously think you needed help. You were cheering when an Iraqi was throwing shoes at our President, remember? It was fake and phony and you were a part of it. At least Krugman is going down with the ship, you’ve got to switch now that liking Obama is uncool. You’re as bad as a Kardashian.

  49. #49 |  Radley Balko | 

    You give me too much credit, Timmeh. I think Romney is a Twit. His foreign policy is terrifying.

    And I still think the shoe thrower is a hero.

  50. #50 |  Timmy Pea | 

    And another thing, if I hear one more liberal pantie waste blame the 2008 financial crisis on Bush I’m gonna puke. The September 2008 panic was caused because it became clear the worlds largest economy was going to run by a socialist so those with brains and money took their money down.

  51. #51 |  Timmy Pea | 

    @49 “Romney is a Twit”. Not sure why the word twit is capitalized but so be it. That is exactly why you’re going to lose the election, you don’t understand how smart Romney is. He really is the 1% when it comes to brains, work ethic, business smarts, and decency.

  52. #52 |  Timmy Pea | 

    @49 “his foreign policy it terrifying”. Fake.

  53. #53 |  Rick H. | 

    “He told me, ‘you’re not a threat and you are doing a public service but just be careful next time’”

    I believe I can translate this from copspeak. What the agent is conveying in those last six words is, “Although I have gratuitously ruined your afternoon, implicitly threatening you with terrible things, I will still expect you to pretend that you did something wrong. This farewell lecture is standard in the professional code (even if it’s just a nasty parting shot) because, as a cop, my bloated, fragile ego cannot withstand the slightest hint of self-examination or humility.”

  54. #54 |  Robbo | 

    @30 For me the key thing about Romneys project is he did it with his sons. Sure you can pay a contractor to build something for you, but to work together on something useful with your sons is worth a lot more than money. Riccardo does not apply.

  55. #55 |  jmcross | 

    @50 ” The September 2008 panic was caused because it became clear the worlds largest economy was going to run by a socialist…”
    Fake. Laughably fake.

    FBI/picture taking story- So, how would this have turned out if this man was NOT a volunteer with the weather service, with “legitimate” reason to be taking photographs? What if he were just an average guy who happened to see an interesting cloud he wanted to get a picture of?

  58. #58 |  MH | 

    Or worse, what if he wanted to take a picture of the refinery, just because it made an interesting picture?

  59. #59 |  jmcross | 

    My job frequently puts me at industrial locations; power plants, refineries, chemical plants, mines, etc. I have lotsa pix that I’ve taken without any drama. Industrial architecture can be beautiful and compelling. Smokestacks towering out of the morning fog on the Ohio River is like something out of The Lord of The Rings. Sunrise on a west Texas refinery looks like science fiction.

    @#42

    Why are Americans so willing to spend HALF of our resources on “defense”? Hey Republicans!

    Actually happened to me last month. FBI agent showed up (sorry, cannot say why…but you can go ahead and guess). I explained that I don’t make statements to any state agents and that my lawyer will contact him. He was nice and I bid him “good day, sir”. This is not the first time I’ve used this line and I’ve never had a confrontation over it.

  61. #61 |  Boyd Durkin | 

    If the enjoyment you get from gardening is actually enough that you get more utility from an hour of gardening than you do from an additional hour of work, then you should work less and start a part time job gardening for other people.

    This is silly. How in hell is it hard to understand that after debugging other people’s code for 60 hours a person would enjoy riding a mower for an hour on the weekend? That doesn’t mean he/she wants to mow for 60 hours and take a pay reduction of 80%.

    But, debug for a 61st hour or mow for hour 1? That’s a pretty easy choice.

    Please, people, don’t try conducting economics without a license.

  62. #62 |  Boyd Durkin | 

    I remember reading this site back in 2008 and it was very pro Obama.

    Does anyone else remember this like Timmy Pea? And by “anyone” I mean one of the folks with over 400 posts.

    Of course Timmy might just be reminding us all that being critical of Bush means you must be a Democrat (and switchy-itchy).

  63. #63 |  el coronado | 

    “…and by ‘anyone’, I mean one of the folks with 400+ posts.”

    WTF is this shit? Leftwing/KOS echo chamber rules & regs? Thurston Howell III listening only to “*our* kind of people, Lovey!”?? Whatever happened to ‘Let 1000 flowers bloom’?

  64. #64 |  Timmy Pea | 

    This is a great day! The day that left wing liberal idiots like Radley Balko get to abandon Obama because he has lost his lead and will soon be a disgraced and defeated president. Since Romney’s foreign policy scares him so much, or should I say “frightens” him so much. He must be happy that Obama is thinking about bombing an aspirin factory in Libya. Who says frighten?

  65. #65 |  Timmy Pea | 

    Where’s the Sesame Street meme? Aren’t you going to show a anti-Romney Sesame Street meme to show that you are in lock step support of our president and you’re buddies at the other lefty sites.
