Christmas in June

I do not believe it is necessary to impugn President Obama's motives about this catastrophically stupid idea of randomly forgiving massive amounts of student loan debt (and since there is no collateral, and the universities have been paid, this "forgiveness" is called "a transfer of payments" - and guess who the payer is - YOU!). Be that as it may, I believe Obama actually thinks he's helping these people. The need of the hour is a pro-growth economic agenda that would actually see them get … [Read more...]

Double Down a Fascinating Inside Look at an Embarrassing Election

I was hesitant to take on the 475-page behemoth from Halperin and Heilemann when it arrived. I had pretty much left the misery of the 2012 campaign (and subsequent election results) in the past, and the degree of backlog I am suffering from right now in my reading list was not motivating me to take on this work (the book right before this was Geithner's 550-page Stress Test and the one right after this is Prin's 425-page All the President's Bankers, which I should finish today).

My overall confidence levels have grown a lot over the years, and yet there is still something nerve-wracking about introducing your hero, and that, my friends, is what Larry Kudlow is to me - a hero. So if I sound wobbly or nervous, just take it for what it is, humility. I … [Read more...]

When “Non-Interventionist” Means Imperial Bully Intervention; or, Why Ron Paul does not want Rand to be President

Just when I get ready to believe that Rand's vastly superior political skills to that of his father's could make him political in the 2016 Republican Presidential primary, Ron Paul goes out and says this: Ron Paul says Putin's intervention in Crimea all good by him I will ignore, for now, the utterly incredible ignorance of history and law embedded in Paul's viewpoint here. I will ignore his coddling of international bully and criminal, Vladimar Putin (who seems to have more supporters … [Read more...]
