U.S. Debt Worries Everybody, Thomas Szasz Dead at 92, Krugman Plays the Zombie Card: P.M. Links

  • Dear America: If you don't get a handle on this debt thing, we are so going to ding your credit rating. Love, Moody's.
  • The German government isn't happy about U.S. debt, either.
  • Thomas Szasz, who challenged the concept of mental illness without a physical cause, and warned that such diagnoses could be abused for coercive purposes, is dead at 92.
  • Paul Krugman accused Rand Paul of being brainwashed by zombies for asserting, quite correctly, that federal government employment is up under Obama. One of these days, we'll discover that Krugman is a performance artist ...
  • Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says his country will blow up Iran if it wants to and there's nothing the U.S. can do about it. Now just you wait a minute, young man ...
  • Money from Medicare fraud was being laundered through Cuba's state bank.
  • Is that a monkey in your underwear, or are you just happy— Oh. So it is a monkey.

    So Andy's Krugman, not Obama? Hmmmm, it is possible.

  • John||

    Andy is Biden.

    Andy could be the entire administration for all we know. Didn't he used to have other actors rotate playing his characters to create ambiguity as to whether they were real people?

    So...is Schumer actually Bob Zmuda?

    No way--that's too easy. Biden is a thin Sam Kinison.

    You’re probably curious: Did the SlutWalkers show a lot of Obama Love? Oddly, no: Although there was quite a lot of Republican-bashing, as expected, only one marcher, shown here, overtly campaigned for Obama. I’m quite certain that there were a grand total of zero Romney votes in the crowd, but it was probably considered just too square and predictable for most of the protesters to openly declare their support for a sitting president. One must maintain a supremely radical pose in public, and then in the voting booth get pragmatic and pull that lever for “D.”

    Every damaged peace of goods on the planet right now is blaming their problems on Republicans. I really wished you guys were half as evil as your reputation.

    Democracy is alive and well in Egypt as angry protestors scale the US embassy walls and burn the embassy's American flag. Protestors were screaming slogans about Allah and were demanding an apology for a film critical of Muslims made by a US based Coptic group.

  • John||

  • A Serious Man||

    I don't neccessarily see that happening since the military regime there has every incentive not to let another Tehran happen since they want our money.

  • Fluffy||

    I say this in all seriousness:

    If Egyptian students take US hostages at an embassy a few weeks before the US election, I will firmly believe it's a CIA plot to get Romney elected.

    Why the CIA would plot against Obama when he continually does this bidding, I don't know. But it will just be so obvious.

  • Killazontherun||

    Why the CIA would plot against Obama when he continually does this bidding

    Yeah, they are not going to get anyone more compliant than Obama. The personal and family links are enough to convince me of a long connection. One, the program that his father took advantage of to study in the US was sponsored by the goodwill side of our intelligence community. they would pay for talented, politically connected students to study here in hopes of building future alliances. Probably not even a bad idea.

    Two, his step father was a high ranking officer in the coup most infamously known for 'The Year of Living Dangerously.' A CIA operation in all its blood soaked glory.

    His mother worked for a bank known for laundering for the CIA in Asia, as well as working for the Ford Foundation. Their links are notorious.

    Obama's only private experience was with an outfit that Robert Wenzel, I believe it was, found a contemporaneous clip from the New York Times at the time identifying it as doing contract work for the CIA in information gathering.

    He is called a radical though his craptastic socialism is just Galbraithian public institution dominance over all independent operators. He is like a throw back in many ways to the naive technocratic vision of the world of the mid twentieth century in short that of his parents and his grandfather.

  • Killazontherun||

    Memory a little off on the last tidbit. The NYT article was actually much less innocuous than I recalled them being merely a third party gatherer of info. Probably because I have read Dreams of My Father since then I blended Obama's description of them in the mix:

    http://www.economicpolicyjourn.....d-cia.html

    In his autobiography, Dreams From My Fathers, Barack Obama writes of taking a job at some point after graduating from Columbia University in 1983. He describes his employer as “a consulting house to multinational corporations” in New York City, and his functions as a “research assistant” and “financial writer”.
    Oddly, Obama doesn’t mention the name of his employer. However, a New York Times story of October 30, 2007 identifies the company as Business International Corporation. Equally odd is that the Times did not remind its readers that the newspaper itself had disclosed in 1977 that Business International had provided cover for four CIA employees in various countries between 1955 and 1960.10

    MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) -- Idaho authorities say a pilot flying over a Republican gathering had been dropping rolls of toilet paper or streamers from his airplane before it crashed.

    The Federal Aviation Administration says early indications are the experimental aircraft stalled or reached a speed and angle at which it lost its lift. The pilot, 60-year-old Randy Humble, of Moscow, Idaho, died at the scene Saturday.

    Stupid is as stupid does.

    Major defense contractors have confirmed they’ll send tens of thousands of employee layoff warnings shortly before Election Day, according to correspondence released Monday by Arizona Sen. John McCain.

    Problem is that the administration (via the DCAA) is currently in the process of suing Lockheed Martin for not sending out WARN notices as soon as they were aware thier MIGHT be layoffs in the cancelation of the Marine One upgrade contract.

    What is Canada's age of consent?

    The age of consent for sexual activity is 16 years. It was raised from 14 years on May 1, 2008 by the Tackling Violent Crime Act.

    However, the age of consent is 18 years where the sexual activity "exploits" the young person -- when it involves prostitution, pornography or occurs in a relationship of authority, trust or dependency (e.g., with a teacher, coach or babysitter). Sexual activity can also be considered exploitative based on the nature and circumstances of the relationship, e.g., the young person's age, the age difference between the young person and their partner, how the relationship developed (quickly, secretly, or over the Internet) and how the partner may have controlled or influenced the young person.

    You wouldn't actually have to fuck her to marry her, though, John. Her actual husband worked at Yale his whole life while she lived in the Hamptons. They had "sexless marriage" written all over them. All you'd have to do is show up and eat once in a while (food, that is) and you'd be good.

    So, he was boinking coeds while she was boinking the local pool guy?

    You leave Ina alone. That woman can cook. I could probably get drunk enough to hit that if doing so came with her meals and living in her house in the Hampton.

    ???

    The hell?

    How could you...

    I don't even.

  • Restoras||

    I was informed that cougars are always on the prowl in the Hamptons. Is this not the case?

  • Coeus||

    Yes.
    It is.

    Texas cop admits to fishing for drugs for revenue:

    I know what you say. I don't even stop them unless they do at least 10 mph over. But remember, when we stop vehicles here we have other reasons too. We are at the border. When we get drugs here, we get'em by the truckload, no exageration. Criminal interdiction is our bread and butter, and speeding is one of the most frequent PCs. You realize that at 85 mph being legal, we have to tight up the belt a little.
  • The Hammer||

    Wow, he's so articulate, too. I wasn't aware that speeding was Probable Cause for anything other than a ticket.

  • Coeus||

    Hehe. Feminists confused by the government not paying for something.

    Mia Love is just one Republican in a long line of Republicans who make no sense on women’s issues but that doesn’t mean she should be able to get away with it.

    When asked about her party’s support of the Blunt amendment, their party platform which criminalizes choice, their repeated attempts to de-fund Planned Parenthood and the war on women writ large, Love said, “I would like federal government to let me keep a little bit my own money so I can pay for my own contraceptives if I want to.” In many ways this clip illustrates a Republican party who’s platform cannot be explained to a mainstream audience because it’s explicitly anti-woman.

    "But I don't want to pay for your contraceptives. Go and buy them yourself."
    "You're explicitly anti-woman!"

    "I won't give you my wallet! Go and get a job, you lazy bum!"
    "You're explicitly anti-robber!"

    Someone else quoted this a few days ago, but it's doubly appropriate here:

    Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all.

    We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain.

    I love that Bastiat quote, but why is everyone suddenly acting like it's new? Someone posts it here every couple of months since I started posting here.

  • Pro Libertate||

    I somehow missed it. I'm reading The Law as a result.

  • JW||

    their party platform which criminalizes choice

    You keep using that word.

    I'm not seeing a whole lot of choice in either platform, sweetie. Lots of coercion, but not much actual choice.

  • Pro Libertate||

    The choice to submit or die. That's the choice they're talking about.

  • JW||

    The Republican platform clearly calls for cake or death, which is much preferable to the Democrat's Fluke or death.

  • Pro Libertate||

    Yeah, I could see voting for cake. Especially chocolate cake.

  • ||

    It's literally anti-woman.

  • Restoras||

    Personally, I am anti-women but very, very pro-slut.

    Does feministing not even allow you to read comments without being logged in?

    Hey, the shirtless libertarian candidate showed up in the comments to defend himself against the narc. He needn't have bothered, but it is informative.

    How would we know, since you Sugar-Freed the link?

    Pretty amusing self-takedown here: http://www.digitaltrends.com/c.....cys-flaws/

    You need to read the comments to get to the laugh.

    Dude's definitely ignorant, but in a way that 99% of the population is. Well, maybe 98% now that Ron Paul got a little popular.

  • Robert||

    Tom was one of those guys you appreciated and who hung on for a long time and whose death you knew was overdue, and so started grieving for the loss of even before it happened. Yet I might've missed it had I not come here tonight. I'd been staying away from H y R for a couple weeks because it tended to burn out my sound processor by overheating the whole board, and I didn't see this at Volokh. Maybe I'd've been happier had I stayed away longer; I might've thought Tom was still alive months from now.
