Trump's Catch-22 Economy

Just a friendly reminder that liberals don’t believe in anything except what is convenient for them at the moment. Two different recent posts from the same ultra-liberal Facebook page:

So to summarize: the economy is terrible and it’s Trump’s responsibility, and also the economy is great and it’s Obama’s responsibility. All at the same […]

Democratic Armageddon: Economic Growth

We’re now a month in to the Trump Administration’s tax cuts, or “Armageddon” as Nancy Pelosi called them, and I’m forced to ask, where’s the kaboom? There was supposed to be an earth-shattering kaboom?

Well, I’m sure Doomsday is still right around the corner, but in the meantime, the tax cut’s effects have been […]

Blue State Blues - Poverty and Exodus

The Census Bureau’s Supplementary Poverty Measure, which measures the poorest states in the country (and includes the cost of housing, food etc. in its calculations) has released its new list, and guess which state is the poorest one in America? Some deep south, backwoods red state? Nope. It’s California, the bluest of the blue […]

We're The Media, And We Know Better

Courtesy of the Washington Free Beacon, a good supercut of mainstream media “experts” predicting that the Trump tax cuts won’t benefit anyone except the rich, and then reporting the reality afterwards. Womp womp!

It’d be great if we could ask our newsmakers to understand basic economics before they report on it, wouldn’t it?

2017 - The Year Liberals Lost Comics #Comicsgate

Back when our comics were written by people with common sense.

2017 was undoubtedly a year of high-profile conservative wins (the economy came roaring back, ISIS was virtually defeated, many of Trump’s key agenda was passed successfully) and liberal defeats (the Trump “resistance” was full of impotent freakouts and flame-outs, liberal attempts to control […]

Capitalism - Schmapitalism pt. 1

Forgive me, Threedonia, but today I’m going to dump three incomplete posts on the site. The first two were written on July 26th, 2016, the third on February 8th, 2017.

The impetus was a tongue in cheek post I had written mocking University elites for missing the point on what’s important for young men and […]

Capitalism - Schmapitalism pt. 2

“His Smoot Hawley view of trade is also ignorant and has never worked. Poverty is at historic lows and the idea that NAFTA, et al, is solely to blame is simple-minded.” – Floyd R. Turbo

This is a big topic; Yuge! I’m not sure I have the talent to weave it into a post, […]

The Genius of Trump that Everyone Seems to be Missing

Of all his flaws, and there are many, it amazes me how few seemingly intelligent people miss one of the most obvious aspects of Trump’s schtick. The dude made his name a household word in the ’80s by presenting himself as the king of […]

Capitalism - Schmapitalism pt. 4

I get the economics. I do. It is fair to say the world’s economy is better in the past 60 years due to free markets and somewhat unfettered global trade. It’s also fair to say more Americans have more things; cars, televisions, rooves overhead, porkchops on dinner plates… But do upward sloping lines on […]
