A collection of stuff that’s accumulated in my, “Gee, isn’t that interesting!” file over the last week or two. Well, actually some of it is from the, “Gee, isn’t that scary?” file:
- Step-by-step plan for fed takeover of private retirement funds. Hey, they’re gonna need the money, you know.
- The most important chart … of the whole century. Debt saturation and the diminishing return on every dollar. Very dramatic. Very simple. Definitely one for the scary file.
- When you work hard and play by the rules the house wins.
- From the comments section: Philalethes linked to this excellent article, “Linux, Freedom, and Frontiers.” Would it be egotistical to say it sounds like something I’d write — only better? Maybe I should just stick with, “I wish I’d have thought of that.”
- Wow. Second mainstream source in a week to print an op-ed advocating census resistance. It’s Jeff Jacoby of the Boston Globe this time, and he advocates refusing only one question. But it’s a start.
- Speaking of mainstreamers beginning to express things only us wing-nuts used to say, Michael Kinsley fears hyperinflation. Sad that he doesn’t quite understand why he fears it. He should talk to some Mises Austrians.
- Gotta love those Free Staters! Guns, pot, and protest. All at the same time.
- Even the lefties hate the ObamaCare bill — and for some of the same reasons we do.
- But to end on a cheerier note: The Wolf in the Parlor: The Eternal Connection between Humans and Dogs. Another good one from Philalethes. Looks like a must-read for all dog lovers.
