It’s natural for smarts to win in the end

A colleague sent me this, and I find it vaguely hopeful:

An orca (a large-brained mammal related to the dolphin) knew how to kill a Great White shark, cleverly by flipping it on its back.

I’m not sure for what that’s a metaphor, but I’ll think of something. Hat tip, boingboing.net.

Left-wing economists: They’re that stupid

Zero Hedge remembers how the Great Housing Bubble of 2003-7 was something Paul Krugman had called for:

Before you say “But that was in 2002!”, consider more recent examples of Krugman stupidity, like his calling in 2012 for the government to boost (supposedly) the economy by faking an invasion of space aliens. The Krugtron quote from Time’s account:

“If we discovered that space aliens were planning to attack, and we needed a massive build-up to counter the space alien threat, and inflation and budget deficits took secondary place to that, this slump would be over in 18 months,” Krugman says…

A second instance, from PuffHo’s account:

“So if we could get something that could cause the government to say, ‘Oh, never mind those budget things; let’s just spend and do a bunch of stuff.’ So my fake threat from space aliens is the other route,” Krugman said before a laughing crowd. “I’ve been proposing that.”

So he said it more than once; only half-joking at best. The man loves his malinvestment.*

(*Borrow-and-spend that creates market bubbles, overbuilding, leaf-raking, wars or other activity that is economically inefficient, or useless, or even destructive.)

Related: It struck me that one way you can tell a left-liberal is: government spending always sounds like a good idea, to them. Should government spend, to stimulate the economy? Check. Spend more on education, so people will (supposedly) be more educated? You betcha. It never occurs to the left-liberal that government just might be incompetent at most things. So that the proposed spending would do nothing at all – or would even make things worse, as it only subsidizes incompetence. For example: Subsidizing an incompetent system of educators. The possibility just doesn’t cross a liberal’s mind.

Let’s review how this week has been going for the Democrat Party, the party of good progressive Government, the party that works selflessly for the people.

And remember, these are just the ones who got caught.

The US State Department is really getting tough on Vladimir Putin.

Yeah, that will have Putin quaking in his boots. (Putin, BTW, has an 80% approval rating in Russia.)

Also, did you read where John Kerry pitched a hissy-fit because the Israeli Defense Minister said the US was showing weakness?

Are there any adults left at the State Department? May I speak with one of them, please?

 

Anti-Gun California Democrat Charged with Illegal Gun-Running

Democrat California State Senator Leland Yee has been a strong advocate for every gun control bill the far left People’s Republic of California has passed. Now, in addition to bribery and corruption, Senator Yee has been charged for illegally importing and selling the same guns he would outlaw to his law-abiding constituents.

The affidavit charges that the $2 million worth of weapons to have been secreted into the country from the Philippines included rocket launchers and machine guns, some of which Yee himself had fired while on Mindanao. A portion of the weapons Yee conspired to bring into the U.S. through New Jersey were to have been forwarded on to North Africa via Sicily.

Or, maybe he’s just following the example of his party’s leader; making it illegal for law abiding citizens to own guns while supplying guns to criminal drug gangs.

Update: Oh, my, it seems like Sen. Yee also offered to set up an arms deal with Islamic rebels for $2 Million in cash.

In the video after the break, Senator Yee explains how he wants to keep guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens. “To protect the general public is my priority.”
