ConAgra, Walmart and JPMorgan Lounge In The Food Stamp Safety Hammock
Thus we are left with stimulus spending that is not self-sustaining and a structural expansion in the food stamp program. In effect, we have an increase in the disincentive to work or to search for better paying employment….The Congress, however, has not helped its case by taking what so far has been a do-no-harm attitude toward agricultural subsidies. Most of the benefit of these subsidies | Read More »
Two Faces and The Same “Death By Ideology”
Maybe that Lasik Surgery I had a couple of years ago didn’t quite take. Maybe I just got shot in the face with a laser for nothing. I say that because I’m looking at both Louis Farrakhan and Paul Krugman and swear that the two men could be twins. OK, just kidding. The two men could be ideological twins. In fact, I respect Farrakhan more. At least when he hates your guts for being White and Middle Class, it comes from his heart and isn’t just his day job.

It was so bad that the Obama campaign staffers over at Business Insider.com had no choice but to report it in and honest and forthright manner. The it in question involved the ADP | Read More »
The Top 10 Things Not To Say on 9-11: Paul Krugabe in Perspective
I sometimes get the impression that Paul Krugman expresses a partisan preference for the Democratic Party. The subtly and nuance flies right over my head some days; but I could just swear he’s not a fan of the whole Tea Party Movement or The GOP. Other days, I read Paul Krugabe and could just swear. His venomous, hatred-filled screed in honor of 9-11 was one | Read More »
