Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

OK, crackpot, I think I see where you're coming from. Congratulations on scamming Shady Acres into allowing you Internet Access.

And have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Not Americans -- otherwise they would be concerned about democracy, freedom and human rights for Palestinians. Which they're not.

If we were on their side, they would not be blowing...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Yeah, you're right. When has something like skin color ever played a role in favoritism?

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Does it matter if the Israel Lobby is run by Jews or Gentiles? And why does Mead look at American Jewry on the whole? Go back to your basic Mancur Olson: small, intensely motivated groups drive...

Re: Riding the Metaphor Train (Katherine Mangu-Ward & Erica Grieder)

Um, did Erica Grieder attend the Obama School of Extemporaneous Public Speaking?

Re: Science Saturday: Taking the Plunge

Conservatives are in perpetual awe of the holy intentions of the Founding Fathers, and think the Constitution is this supremely moral document built on grand moral principles. (In fact, a bunch of...

Re: Science Saturday: Taking the Plunge

It really does seem there are liberals who think a gun works like a talisman out of a Stephen King novel: it will summon you in the middle of the night to "shoot the dog." I think Will Wilkinson said...

Re: We're All So Easy to Hate (Maureen Tkacik & Lizz Winstead)

These two are full of it.

Winstead's A Daily Show apologist when she offers up the old trope that hiring in show business ain't fair. Yes, and life isn't fair, blah blah blah, but that doesn't...

Re: Parting Ways With the Right (Charles Johnson & Conn Carroll)

Agreed. For Carroll everything seems to be about scoring one for the team yet, as noted earlier, he does not bother to utter a peep against Johnson's outrage over anonymous people on the Internet...

Re: One-Handed Applause (Josh Cohen & Brink Lindsey)

I have been indoctrinated with enough neo-classical economics to view the notion that the U.S. market subsidizes pharmaceutical research as intuitively plausible. Raising the potential for profits...

Re: On Barack Obama's Failures (Glenn Loury & Brink Lindsey)

Enjoyed this one quite a bit. Agreed the bits against Thaler and Sunstein were unfair: we have to structure choices somehow. People just get paranoid when these choices are *consciously* framed...

Wright and God

I watched this yesterday, and didn't think much of it, but I have to come back and say that Wright, even though I agree with him more often than not, admire his sharp intellect and so on... sometimes...

Re: Labor's Pains

Hipster look? Maybe among the other engineers at Lockheed-Martin. I'm tellin' you he looks like D-FENS, except he's rockin' an offbeat tie.

I like Jim in spite of fascism! I'm kidding, I'm kidding -- I don't really like him at all.

Will's comment that he can't remember jokes

Will's comment that he can't remember jokes reminds me of a new book from magician/joke teller Michael Closes titled THAT REMINDS ME. It has some clunkers, to be sure, and things you've heard...

Re: Just Say Yes to Drugs

Who is this Megan McArdle chick? She can't even pronounce Ayn Rand! And what's the deal with ramping up the rhetoric against a fat tax? Is the market price of Pringles sacred? Last I checked, we...

Spending $50,000 in order to receive the far-flung benefit of "living forever" sounds like just about the most conceited, biased thing a person can do. What makes YOUR interests so special? That...

Religious Dietary Restrictions...

Religious dietary restrictions also prevent the faithful from breaking bread with non-believers, which reduces chances for individuals from different backgrounds to bond and exchange ideas.

Junk Food Tax

First on the analog to smoking. McArdle makes the common claim that she was a heavy smoker and quit without great, great difficulty. People are different. Tobacco companies used to trot out old...

McCain "screaming"?

I tend to agree with Wright most of the time, and think Kaus is a knuckle-dragging, look-at-me-I'm-a-contrarian-Democrat-who-blogs-for-Slate, but Bob sometimes angrily overstates matters. I saw the...
