On the train today, Philosoraptor and I discussed the subjective hypocrisy folks apply to their 50 Shades of Greed - they always seem to exempt themselves:

Reason entered a video in the contest to make a promo video for Obamacare. Hilarity ensues. Don't try to go vote for their submission though, apparently social media contests are not essential.

Why all the chest beating over the "poor federal workers" who are furloughed? Where was the outrage for the jobs that would have been created by the funds that are stolen to pay those workers?

How much history is historical fiction? Where's the line between, say Gore Vidal's Lincoln and Steven Spielberg's film of the same title?

Interesting.... Seems Google is flirting with the "proto-fascist organizations of the extreme right." (LOL, Mercatus and Cato) All I can say is, keep it up Google.
 
It has come to light that Google has started funding and supporting some of the most vile right wing extremist collectives and corporate front groups in America. Join us by changing your avatar and boycotting every single Google service for one day in protest. 

On Wednesday, December 11th make a serious attempt to not use anything Google. No Google Searches. No Google+. No gmail. No Youtube. No Google Calendar. No Blogger. No Google Maps. No Google Photos. No Google translate. No Google reverse image search. No Google Play. No Google Drive. No Google Books. No Google Shopping. Nothing.  If nothing else, just think of this as a challenge to see if you are able to spend a day on the internet without using a single Google product or service. 


Google, many of us are your most loyal users, but it must be understood in no uncertain terms that we vehemently disagree with your decision to start to fund proto-fascist, right wing extremist, and anti-science shock fronts like:

•ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council)
•American Conservative Union
•Americans for Tax Reform
•CATO Institute
•Federalist Society
•George Mason University Law School Law and Economics Center
•Heritage Action
•Mercatus Center
•National Taxpayers Union
•R Street Institute
•Texas Public Policy Foundation

+Paul Burton Perfect, then. ;)  It can be quite difficult to distinguish sarcasm from straight stupidity in a pure textual forum, especially because people are actually making your fake argument for real.  Sorry for assuming the worst!

When I was a kid, my Mom always told me that 'money doesn't grow on trees'. I tell my kids the same thing but add, 'it's made out of thin air'. Needless to say I get confused looks from them.

Hi Paul. Long time since we shared. I saw this post of yours and thought I would share this. I was irritated that Fed could issue orders to Treasury anytime and they would release more fiat $$$ into our banking system which sent our personal wealth down with each new issue. I contacted my Congressmen to ask why we can’t get this as a tax deduction since it was a known loss. They got IRS special consumer division involved who came back to say that this was a personal loss and hence not deductible. I don’t think this is fair, and I also don’t think many people have any real knowledge that the FRB is a private sector institution with the trappings of Federal Gov’t all over it - but it’s not.

I think we should institute a new, floating holiday. It falls on whichever days the government is shut down. It should be called "Jefferson Day" ("That government is best which governs least.").

Several Jefferson Days strung together should be known as a "Jefferson Festival". 

Some day, a Jefferson Festival may culminate in a Thoreau Day ("That government is best which governs not at all.").

Great idea! The Jefferson festival can be wrapped up with Beruit Day.
