    "...a vision for how to reach new audiences.."

    Liberty means personal responsibility and no free shit. A tough sell. It is something people generally come to on their own, the hard way.

    . A tough sell. It is something people generally come to on their own, the hard way.

    This cannot be stated enough.

  • Smilin' Joe Fission||

    ...Austrian economics is the ideological expression of the interests of rentiers like banksters and fossil fuel profiteers (and also retired middle-class people — note the demographics of the Tea Party movement!) against the actually-productive elements of societies.

    If those damn Austrian's would just stop printing money to give to wall street and then forcing fossil fuel onto us, the productive elements of society would have brought us all to keynstopia by now!

  • Smilin' Joe Fission||

  • Irish||

    How are retired middle class people not productive members of society?

    I'd also question how the people who provide oil aren't productive members of society. They're pretty much the drivers of the modern economy.

  • SIV||

    especially issues of particular interest to libertarians, such as Obamacare, federal spending, debt, war, civil liberties, criminal justice reform, the drug war, elections, food trucks, cocktail parties, marriage equality, taxed and regulated marijuana etc.

    Reason.com ... is looking for editorial design artists to create compelling visual content for our site.

    Like that picture of Newt Gingrich as a clown? Whoever did that has some excellent PhotoShop skills.

    OT:
    Idjit columnist hits on the answer to world poverty! Raise the worldwide minimum wage!
    "Low minimum wage a global worry, not just in U.S."
    http://www.sfgate.com/business.....044857.php
    I'm guessing they pay this guy, but he's a real argument that any wage is too much.

  • ||

    "But something is radically wrong in the richest country of the world ...."

    These arguments always include the assumption that there is an endless supply of money, it is just being hoarded by the greedy 1%.

    My local McDonalds is a franchise owned by a guy with 4 kids. He lives in a Average middle class neighborhood and drives a fucking minivan. He busts his ass 60 hours or more a week and makes around 150K. That is pretty good, but he earns every penny.

    I checked. He doesnt have a swimming pool filled with cash and gold coins.

  • Sevo||

    They also include the assumption that something is 'wrong'.
    No, it isn't. I don't make as much money as Bill Gates and there is absolutely nothing 'wrong' with that.

  • Rufus J. Firefly||

    That's what the Livingwagerists don't get: Franchisees are glorified managers.

    Where do they think all this money will come from?

    Right. They don't think.

  • The Late P Brooks||

    ABC Roundtable discussion seems to have boiled down to: Unbridled, unregulated financial enterprises have caused all our problems.

    Also, Rand Paul is insane, because he has no sufficiently collectivist approach to solving the problems of Detroit. What we need is a robust central planning authority to properly take control of and allocate the resources available to the Detroit People's Collective.

    We're fucked.

  • ||

    Why do you do this to yourself man?

  • robc||

    I dont know how an ABC discussion leads to the conclusion that we are fucked.

    Does anyone, other than you, watch ABC news programs?

  • The Late P Brooks||

    The people on the Sunday jibberjabber shows are the shapers of popular opinion. Top Men (and women). They think Big Thoughts.

    How many important and influential people have looked at Rand's proposal for Detroit and said, "Hey, you know what, we trust people; let's try that!"?

  • BakedPenguin||

    I should apply for the Visual Content position, making Photoshop creations that bring SugarFree's vision to light.

    *shudder*

  • The Late P Brooks||

    Get your fresh talking points, hot from the media oven!

    Researchers from the University of California at Berkeley calculate that almost a third of all bank tellers receive some form of government assistance, according to the Washington Post. That includes $534 million for health insurance through Medicaid and coverage for low-income children, $250 million in tax credits for low and moderate earners, and more than $100 million in food stamps. They qualify for government aid because, on average, the country’s half a million tellers earn about $25,790 a year, or $12.40 an hour (if they work a 40-hour work week), according to the most recent government data. That’s less than similar administrative jobs, and tellers are also more likely to be part-time employees.

    The Post says the researchers calculated the cost to taxpayers for the Committee for Better Banks, a campaign by four New York-based groups that advocate on behalf of labor and low-wage earners. The group recently protested against Bank of America’s new ATMs that connect customers to tellers via video chat. The group says the ATMs may presage layoffs for tellers not in call centers, which Bank of America (BAC)says is not the case.

    Those damn ATMs, stealing everybody's jobs.

  • Rufus J. Firefly||

    I was a teller 1996-98. I knew it was not a career and planned around that.

    What the fuck is wrong with people? A teller's job is a stepping stone into something more if you want a career.

    Despite that, I still managed to save around $15 000 living at home. Not only that, I took the opportunity to build credit.

  • The Late P Brooks||

    For four decades, banks ramped up the number of branches around the country, but the financial crisis, combined with the growth of online and mobile banking, point to a coming bust. Banks have already begun rethinking whether they really need large branches and are reducing their footprint in rural areas and poorer neighborhoods. That pressure isn’t likely to help raise the wages tellers earn—or mitigate their need for public support.

    Business Week, your source for sophisticated, trenchant economic analysis.

  • Rufus J. Firefly||

    'Footprint.'

    Jesus Christ.

  • The Late P Brooks||

    That's what the Livingwagerists don't get: Franchisees are glorified managers.

    Where do they think all this money will come from?

    It only costs a few pennies to make a cheeseburger! Look at all those profits!

  • Rufus J. Firefly||

    They don't realize profits are achieved by maintaining margins. Margins are maintained when you control costs.

    Idiots.

  • Rufus J. Firefly||

    Hang on.

    Is this a paid fellowship? And does one have to return the rings?
