Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

I think Badhat answered these questions well.

Re: Newsflash: Democrats are impure too.

As a Republican myself, I consider him as much a Republican as any others in the field. Republicans and Libertarians overlap quite a bit on domestic issues, and while he is at odds with a big...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

Re: Newsflash: Democrats are impure too.

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

First time I've ever pulled kleenexes while watching BhTv. I admire the sacrifice these two made in discussing their respective situations publicly like this. It was the profoundest contribution...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Keep in mind that the power that a President has, relative to Congress and domestic issues, in the FP space. A president can pretty much do what he wants on FP. In domestic policy he needs...

My predictions for 2012

Mitt Romney will win the GOP nomination easily.

The economy will start improving with unemployment rates getting better as the election approaches.

Re: The Bromance (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

I'm sorry Itzik; I don't understand your question.

Thanks for the link to Wax's book and McWhorters review. I was not aware of this; it's very interesting!

Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Bob provide a great assessment (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/40593?in=66:19&out=68:11) of Ron Paul's foreign policy.
Let this serve as a 'teachable moment' for those liberals on this board...
