Is Thinking Obsolete?

If you want proof of the irrational thinking, go read the entire article about the minimum wage in Oakland http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/12-25-minimum-wage-in-Oakland-could-hit-5652706.php Gary Jimenez, who is behind the minimum wage increase push actually says, 'If we want to get them off the streets and out of trouble, we have to create jobs for them, and we have to do a living wage," In other words, Mr. Jimenez thinks that by increasing the price of hiring troubled youth that more of them will be hired. Want to bet that Mr. Jiminez has never in his life taken a course in economics?

Milton Friedman pointed out long ago that you can have open borders and you can have a welfare state, but you can't have both.

Elizabeth Warren Backs Corporate Welfare Bank

Elizabeth Warren's career has mirrored that of Paul Krugman, who went form being a decently serious economist to a lackey for the NY Times and the Democrat Party. Warren used to be a considered law professor and bankruptcy expert (read The Two Income Trap that she wrote 12 yeas ago). Now she has discovered that the road to approbation among Democrats and the media is to spew nonsense that inflames the ignorant. True, but sad. I thought she had more integrity once.

could you cite a source that would tell us how much of the Highways bill is actually spent on highways?

Important Slow News

But here's another thing that is true. As people become wealthier, here is more focus on what others have that they don't. As people become healthier, they complain more about the cost of what they've chosen.. As homicides drop they complain more about guns. As tolerance for the big items like race increases, they focus more on intolerance for deviant behavior. John, you belong to an industry whose very life depends on creating and magnifying complaints.

Best News Ever: Obama is Worst Ever!

Obama was elected for only one reason -- his skin color. That turns out to be a positive attribute while running for office. Unfortunately it offers no help when actually having to execute an office. A dog is well suited to chase a car. But to drive it?
Utopians are never satisfied.

Obama Seeks an Escape From the Middle East

The analysis boils down to your one simple statement. The Obama administration put politics and ideology ahead of everything else. And, as it turns out, they didn't even do a very good job of calculating the politics (the Benghazi lie was utterly obvious and has come back to hurt them).
Yes, Phil, Obama would agree with you that "someone should be given the authority to conclusively and speedily decide" issues. That person is he, and disregarding the law in favor of HIS common sense is exactly what he wants.

How is this different from the IRS deciding which non-profits offend them and which don't?

But we do that all the time. Most states have even codified compensation for wrongful imprisonment.
