Embarrassing Economists

Someone should send a link to Krugman of the hamburger machine someone is testing. It has the potential to completely eliminate fast food workers. Not only is it vastly more productive than human beings but, it also has the added benefit of not having sick slovenly humans sneezing on the food or handling it after using the restroom and failing to wash their hands. I would certainly prefer a fast food burger from a machine every time.

What a great column as always Mr. Greenberg.

Obama's Small-Screen Worldview

"ultimately fail ... because the future is won by those who build and not destroy." If that really is true then conservatives have nothing to fear. The progressives must lose because they build nothing and only 'redistribute' what others create. Of course, they have been winning, Obama himself, being the most recent example, and the jihadists can win also. The reason can be summed up in one word. Demographics. Read Mark Steyn's America Alone. Of course, that was written B.O. before Obama. Under him, America cannot be alone. We must rush to join the rest of the world in surrendering to Islam. One of the other failings of progressives is the belief that a simple majority can never err. All communist ideologues believe that utopia can be achieved as long as 50.01% vote for it or can be strong armed into it.
Nicely done. When I read the original column I thought it was very well written and also provocative which you do seem to excel at causing your critics to accuse you of being inflammatory. The first article I saw afterwards about it was critical but, lacked exactly what you claim here, a point, or an argument against your point. Unfortunately, one of the major problems of our times is that people perceive things quite different than they actually are or from an unbiased perspective. I immediately read another article that supported you. I thought you made a good point and that was the point after all. Keep em on their toes Ann.

Sadly, I believe the answer to your final question is yes. We have become that stupid as a collective.

'Breaking Bad': A Christian Parable

They may not have and God may not. Both are irrelevant to us for we are commanded to love our enemies and forgive regardless. God will judge for he has perfect knowledge, we do not.

Nicely said right up until the unjustified slam on Pope Francis. Could have done without that. You appear to still have an unhealthy lack of respect for the right of people to choose evil over good. Everyone has that right. Most exercise it often. Not a single one of us would every make it to heaven without Jesus. The path is indeed wide leading to death and many will follow it while the path to eternal life is narrow and guarded by a gate. Nevertheless, attempting to coerce people into the correct path is foolish. Pope Francis understands this. They can only be persuaded.

How to Save Obamacare

Hitchhiker Wrote: Sep 27, 2013 9:23 PM
I fear you are right on this Mr. Greenberg. I always like hearing your opinion. Some of the most well thought out ones out there in the great big world. One can be a radical and intend the kind of fundamental transformation that Obama likes but, in the other direction without being crazy. In fact, it might attract some more moderate low information voters if they simply make the case for it like Ted Cruz did in his monumental speech. That is fine with me as long as he doesn't actually want to commit political suicide by actually shutting the government down. People view that as childish and the MSM will have a heyday and enjoy every minute of it. Obama will immediately threaten to cut off seniors social security checks and that will be that. Any credibility achieved thrown away and then some. Your suggestions are probably very wise and probably a prudent way to collapse Obamacare. I don't want to collapse Obamacare because it is the perfect symbol of progressive over reach and the people that allowed it by voting in Obama and a solid democratic Congress for two years need to lie in this bed they made or they will simply do it again and again. Do I view the electorate as children? Not by choice but, they have proven themselves quite irresponsible. No pain, no gain. No consequences, no learning. They need some pain before the next election cycles and your suggestions would spare them most of it and socialism will go creeping along a little kinder and gentler. If that is the case, count me out of here.

Ted Cruz, the GOP's Obama

Hitchhiker Wrote: Sep 25, 2013 12:16 PM
Anti-Obama? Isn't that the point Goldberg is making? His only criticism is that Cruz might suffer from some of the same faults Obama has as far as procedure goes. Philosophically, they are light years apart as he says. He is certainly correct that Obamacare is the left's biggest accomplishment to date and must be repealed. However, his methodology is giving cover to many of Obama's failures as Thomas Sowell points out. The low information voter that decides elections must be allowed to witness Obama's failures on a grand scale. Cruz might be helping to obscure this. Change cannot come until another election. Obamacare cannot be undone until change comes to the Senate and oval office. If he runs for president, he absolutely should make Obamacare a central issue. Now, is not the time, imo. It hasn't even been implemented yet. Let the people enjoy it for a couple more years before making such a big deal out of it. Unlike Cruz and most of us here, they don't know any better and must experience it before they can be mobilized against it.

Absolutely. We didn't make up the rules. People like oligarchyrising do. Of course, they don't apply to the people that created them. I think I heard the n word used between the lines much like the black caucus hears it among their political opponents. All you have to do is listen closely and you will hear it also wherever you wish to.
