And Another Thing...

I take a break from my break on this blog to urge you to take an hour to watch this lecture by Yaron Brook called, "The Resurgence of Big Government." Not only is Dr. Brook an Objectivist, but he used to teach finance at a college, so he, like, actually knows what he's talking about regarding economics.

You won't find any commentary this good from conservatives, neo-conservatives, paleo-conservatives or libertarians. (Commentary from liberals, socialists and environmentalists on economics is about as useful as flapping your lips with your index finger while vocalizing. Try it! You'll sound just like Barney Frank.)

On another note, I heard on the radio that a church in the midwest, referring to Katy Perry's smash hit, "I Kissed A Girl," had a sign out front that read, "I kissed a girl and I liked it -- then I went to hell."

UPDATE: This commentary by Hugh Hewitt castigating House Republicans for having the temerity to question Paulson's bailout plan shows why Hewitt is the worst. Republicans should be saying, "Uh, wait a minute..." about the greatest leap toward socialism in recent memory. But if the government does not intervene and the meltdown spreads, then McCain's presidential hopes might suffer, and Hewitt cares only about one thing: Republican electoral success.

Republicans embracing big government for fear they might lose the next election is destroying the party. Voters are not stupid: if they want Democrats, they know they might as well elect real ones instead of these trembling, spineless creatures that are me too Republicans.

Congressman Mike Pence's earlier castigation of the bailout plan was undercut by today's statement. Unsurprisingly.

This seems politically inexorable.

I love the sound I make when I do what you suggest with my index finger. It always sounds to me like the happy sound that a really skilled auctioneer makes. You know, "beddle-be-baddle-be-beddle-be...sold America." Hmmm. Maybe that is Barney Frank.
