This “IS” how collectivism always plays out, idiots…

Surprisingly, in a parody I think most leftist, including the people at the WaPo, will miss, they have an article titled “Rare diary gives details of life under Khmer Rouge“, which describes the beautiful agrarian revolution brought to Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge. From the article:

Nearly 40 years ago, hunched on the floor of the wood-and-leaf hut he was forced to live in away from his children, Cambodian school inspector Poch Younly

Another myth about “The Party of the Little People” getting busted?

And it is about time. People are wizening to the fact the people ripping them off the hardest are those that have been claiming, for decades, to be on their side and they are not happy. It is not a mistake that when progressives grab power, the policies they put into place to redress the wrongs they constantly harp about, actually do the exact opposite of what they tell everyone they want to do. … Read more

An idea I am behind..

The next big bubble that will burst, if the wholehousing market or government money printing & incessant borrowing leftist agenda, and forced anti-savings money policies, which the Europeans have adopted, doesn’t blow up on us yet again, will be the student loan bubble. There is another $1.2 trillion of tax payer liability, waiting to blow up as the economic policies of the nanny staters create even more unemployment for the … Read more

Are we there yet?

While desperate democrats, worried about the well-deserved shellacking that should be coming their way in the election at the end of this year, are desperately pissing away tax payer dollars to ward off the disastrous consequences of their economic policies, the truth about how horrible the impact on said policies on the economy is can’t be hidden:

Despite adding more than 8 million people to the working-age population since 2007, total employment has

Unintended consequence!

Or something. Yeah, sure. What do you ask am I talking about? Well, the left’s recent realization that carrying a shit-ton of student debt will prevent you from buying a home. Now the left limits it to first time home buyers, but it applies to any homebuyer at all: if you have a student debt that is as big as a mortgage you have shown you are not a reliable debtor to most sane … Read more

L.A. Times misses the real picture

The L.A. Times has a short article titled Record number of educated women are ‘marrying down’, where they bandy the following set of statistics:

A record number of American women are “marrying down,” tying the knot with a husband who is less educated than they are, according to a new study.

Nearly 21% of married women in 2012 were better educated than their spouses, a threefold jump from 1960, according to the Pew Research

If this is for real, it is real sad

The Atlantic has an article about where young people today find themselves titled Highly Educated, Highly Indebted: The Lives of Today’s 27-Year-Olds, In Charts, where they ask and answer the question:

What are today’s young adults really like? For those who’ve spent too much time gazing into the dark recesses of Thought Catalog or obsessing over “Girls,” the Department of Education has a new report that offers up some enlightening answers.

Three of the … Read more

This is probably why so many of you can’t get a job

I have become convinced that college no longer is an investment worth making for most people. The simple truth is that not every degree is created equally, and it is more than what college the degree comes from. While many people are impressed when someone tells them that they have an Ivy League degree, I have to admit that I often have the opposite reaction. I have dealt with too many Ivy leaguers that were … Read more

Now that they have read it..

So, remember a few years ago when Pelosi was telling us we had to pass it to get the details about it and the CBO, given a nice pile of bullshit lies told us this thing would reduce the country’s deficit, AND reign in healthcare costs, AND get more people on it? Remember the days where a bunch of smug scumbag marxist told us that after passing the ACA on a strict party line vote … Read more

When you are deep in debt and going broke….

Double down n the shit that got your there? Really? Most people’s reaction is to reign in the spending to what’s absolutely necessary, and to get things under control, because being a homeless bum living on the street isn’t something appealing to anyone that has the mental acuity to avoid it. Sure, some people end up homeless anyway, but they do so usually because something is seriously wrong with them, mentally, and they can’t control … Read more
