Roman Turek Profile In Courage Award


It's Friday, and that means one thing: Hey ladies in the place we're calling out to ya.

Huh? What? That's right! It is that time of the week when we present the Roman Turek Profile In Courage Award (the RTPIC)!

First, the big news of the week. U.S. underemployment is hovering around 18.3%. 18.3%! That's fucking banana's. Obamanomics is stupid. Keyne's is a interesting enough guy, and maybe you could possibly see why people would take a keynesian look at the economy (inebriation, naivete) but this neo-keynes shit that the President has rolled with is an obvious failure. Sorry demand siders, but you look at macro's that don't matter to tweak things that won't help, and the results are 18.3% underemployment. Here's the secret: demand is always around, supply isn't. We can demand flying cars all we want. Indeed, the demand for flying cars, if the population was polled, would assuredly reach 100%. But we don't have flying cars...maybe because the demand side of the equation doesn't really matter? In other words, you can only demand what has been produced. Demand is constant; People always want new, shiny things. Supply is variable. If you want jobs, if you want spending money, you need to let the producers produce as uninhibited as possible. Or you get 18.3% underemployment. Speaking of disappointments, Roidger Clemens is in trouble, bro. What is it with the AL East and cheating? Anyways...Mexican drug dealers know how to bling their shit up. Ballin. What? No Ground Zero mosque talk? No, none. It shouldn't go there. Yeah, we know, we're racists.

This weeks winner of the Roman Turek Profile In Courage Award: OG Gilbert Gottfried.



Brrrt.

Not much of a story with this one. We are still waiting on Antonin to convince Roman Turek to give this lowly site an interview. Get on it, Antonin. Do it!

We await Khmer Turek.

Furthermore, I think Peter Loubardias should be fired.

  1. So am I to assume you're more of a Hayek guy?

  2. Much more.

    As he would say, there are certainly humanitarian reasons to do some of these foolish things, but to argue they are done to enhance economic efficiency or output is, to me, just silly.

    And as were quoting, Ill quote Kudlow: You can print money, but you can't print jobs.
