Default Re: Don't Drink and Tweet (Monica Potts & Conn Carroll)

This is why the "Libertarianism" touted by so many on the right is a joke. Might as well be a "Marxist" if you want to live in LaLaLand. So glad the liberal left isn't an ideological sandbox.

He's talking about macro, idiot. No controlled experiments = no empiricism, duh. It's all just a bunch of stories told about a very few incidents with people on different sides never talking about the best anecdotes the other side has to offer. Ex: progressives never talk about the immediate turnaround of the depression of 1920-21. The greatest one-year GNP drop between 1870 and today... which rebounded in one year. But we got stuck with Bush/Obama/who-the-hell-knows-because-this-could-take-forever instead of Brain-dead-Wilson/Harding.
