It's old-fashioned, garden-variety envy, dressed up in all sorts of costumes.

Scaife went broke in the divorce, Koch is frustrated six waves from Sunday, whereas candidates for the Timchenko test, like Steyer, and Soros, seem to get all the cards.

>>>And if Matt thinks that an heir to Sam Walton who can control the disbursements of a multi-billion dollar foundation somehow lacks for access, clout and A-list invitations, well, yikes.<<<

yikes indeed!

jimmyk on iPhone

Haven't these clowns heard of "From shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three generations"? All a rich person has to do is have 3 or 4 kids and the wealth is dissipated by the time it gets to his grandchildren. Unless he goes into politics, in which case it lasts longer. So the only real concentration of wealth is in the political class, and they get it by extortion rather than producing anything of value.

Ugh. Time to switch from coffeesplaining to beersplaining, then drag more firewood inside. B***s***ing was such a good word for for this.

rich@gmu

>>>I am not sure that kind of money will turn around the deplorable stagnation that is not actually happening anyway.<<<

I'm not following this point. It might be my coffee hasn't fully kicked in.

jimmyk,

Lot of very large private companies family owned on their 5th generation of ownership (ie. Cargill, Mars, Bechtel) I oftne wondered wthat their genetic-business secret was becuase they are truly the excption and not the rule.

All this talk of Piketty makes my head hurt.

rich@gmu

think this link explains what I'm confused about ...

>>>Unfortunately, this myth of wage stagnation is being used to dismantle piecemeal the very economic freedoms that cause incomes to rise. We see this in proposals to increase the minimum wage, raise taxes on businesses, and to expand redistribution programs.<<<

narciso

Well it's the same Bialystok play with climate change, which frustrates fracking, with Matt Ridley pointed out, has less impact on the earth then others,

jimmyk

Those are the exceptions, JiB, but surely we shouldn't be designing a whole confiscatory tax system because of a few success stories (never mind that it's a silly goal to begin with). That would be as crazy as tearing down the entire health care industry for the sake of getting a few million people insured. Oh, wait, never mind.

Clarice Feldman

Who is funding Klein's dreckorama? I read somewhere it is 8 figures worth. Hard to believe.

Clarice Feldman

Mars' secret is they are privately owned by the family. I don't know about the tohers.

Clarice Feldman

OOps, sorry JiB, I missed you'd noted the private ownership. Then there are the Kennedy's who life off a tax free trust in Tahiti--Certainly occasioned by some special elgislation at the time.

Eight figures, and the most amateurish enterprise, since Cop Rock;

It is great to see the left pouring money down the toilet. Better that than on Hillary's campaign. Now if we could just get the Kochs to buy CBS or the NYT...

jimmyk

I fear we will be stuck with Clintons for at least another generation as Bill and Hill only managed to get over their mutual abhorrence to spawn one child, who married into another crooked political family.

I say a 90 percent tax rates on politicians' ill-earned estates first, and then we can talk about who's next.

Clarice's Pieces this morning was an excellent example of how facts do matter in making out a powerful case against an MFM meme of the day. Note that it has garnered over 500 comments thus far. I wonder how many hits it got.

Frau Edith Steingehirn

jimmyk @ 1:58 -
I think of the Clintons and Mezvinskys as political crime families.

Clarice, your latest is beautifully sobering.

jimmyk

You cannot go broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.

Not sure--the NY Times is surely testing that proposition.

Clarice Feldman

Thanks.

Amazing, isn't it how these pundits keep falling for this same make believe? Foley, Libby, Duke LaCrosse, Trayvon Martin, Cliven Bundy...I can stop any time....

BumperStickerist

good article(s), Clarice ...

On the topic of 'mansplaining' - and for the benefit of all us swinging-dick men who don't understand the concept, because, face it, we have better things to occupy our minds


Mansplaining is the same thing as a woman explaining to you how you should interact with your five year old child.

Only, it's okay for that to happen because.

Just "because." I'm told "It's a girl thing" and apparently we wouldn't understand.

narciso

Now if they really go after Volodya's stash at Gunvor, katie bar the door,

rse

Clarice-

I am not sure they fall for it so much as they have been trained to push erroneous mass beliefs as a means for the media, just like with ed, to supposedly alter reality. Racism does not have to be real, but the perception that it exists needs to be. As long as that exists, minorities or women or other groups see their group identity at risk instead of being a conglomeration of individuals.

Yesterday the research I was doing pulled up the meaning of equity. Equality is not sufficient to redress disadvantage, nor ensure equality of outcomes. So we are to get constant meddling by the political class paying themselves well to supposedly prosecute equity.

Jack is Back

Clarice,

Because, we are unexplainable and the left needs to make shit up to explain 1) common sense, 2) life xperience dictates reasoning and 3) we believe in more than the unicorn and free stuff.

They on the other hand believe in nothing unless someone makes it something to believe in.

What a wonderful day! Two former Popes canonnized.@ miracles for Pope John Paul and 1 for Pope John the 233rd.
I remember when the Mass changed from Latin to English after Vatican II. My brothers were happy they no longer had to fake it and mumble through the Confiteor while they were serving Mass.
My brother told me recently that manu
y times he was taken out of Math class along with his twin to serve a 10:00 am funeral Mass.
JIB:
It is possible for Frederick to take the ACT earlier than junior year and sometimes grade school take promising students as part of the Midwest talent search and administer a shortened version to use as a predictor for future success.
We gave a practice PSAT to our sophomores and if the same math still applys a combined score of 210 including the verbal math and writing portions is a fair predictor that the student will become a National Merit Semi-finalis. How is Frederick as a test taker? Is he consistently in the 95th percentile?
A few years ago Dartmouth was taking only the very top students from eacH graduating class.Also students can apply early decision or to the Honors College of different universities.

I watched FNS before Captain's warning and my husband and I were cheering the total beat down of the weird harridan they had on calling the ruling a RACIST decision. Gratz had her on the ropes so bad she used the dog

Word on the street is that Boehner may want to retire after this Congress. That would not surprise me.I do not correct or apologise for the multiple errors cause that's how I roll.

Jack is Back

maryrose,

Thanks for that. Right now I want him to focus on his 5th grade assignements and work. He is doing well and reached into the 88 percentinle on his Iowa testing. We do Iowa instead of FCAT since we are a parochial school. His problem is "challenge" and that is why he goes to Embry-Riddle in the summer for Aviation and Math. Robotics is always too early in the summer for him but he loves Aviation.

I don't want him to think he has to be Ivy League but to be what he wants to be. Right now that is Marine science and Aviation. Which means he wil probably major in Political Science and end up being a world class chef:)

maryrose

JIB:
88th percentile is excellent for a fifth grader. He obviously is a good test taker. His varies interest will be helpful to him and his passion for music and aviation make him the sort of well-rounded student universities are looking for. His parochial education will help him tremendously with writing skills and his love of science is a plus. Be sure he takes honors classes when they are available. The self-discipline will teach him to continue his good study habits.I remember subbing for an AP Biology class. When I called for the homework papers every single one of them was on my desk in a trice.

Clarice Feldman

Marine science?--UCSB--room overlooking the Pacific Ocean and spending all day on boats with California girls in bikinis. Smart choice of major--but I think I'll start sending him uCSB brochures with pics of the boats, fellow students and dorm rooms.

Frau Edith Steingehirn

My br-i-l Manfred, a naturalized American citizen, read Clarice's Pieces and responded, "Clarice Feldman for president."

Clarice is eligible and qualifies beyond a doubt.

My daughter took the ACT last Wednesday. One question asked if you had negative 12 and a negative 10 on a number line (number lines!!), what would the difference be? Answers included 11, -11, 0, 2, and (I believe) -2. Not a serious instrument.

Clarice Feldman

Thanks, frau. I do have a certified b.c. but I can't personally attest that it is accurate..the whole birthy thing is sort of a blur.

Clarice,

He lives down the road from Marineland where he has swam wkh the Dolphins 4 times, surfs the sea and takes care of 4 turtle nests on the beach. He even has a friend who wears a bikini when they go swimming:)

But UCSB does sound pretty exoctic but only if the Wolverine ends up there:)

Clarice Feldman

Heh--If you don't behave, I'll start sending him publicity shots from there..extremely cute girls in the marine biology dept BTW.

I just realized something and I have no idea if I am disturbed by it. I'm listening to coverage of Donald Sterling on CNN. I just don't give a shit. Obama has made me think that "racism" is nothing but a mechanism played by democrats to manipulate people.

Racism has always seemed really weird to me. With regard to sexism, I have always thought the person who feels that way is missing out on me. I guess I feel the same way about racism. It no longer seems like the burden it used to seem like. Anyone else feel that way?

James D.

I know envy is a sin, but...

Ezra Klein and his juiceboxers are vapid, soulless twits who decrease the world's store of knowledge every time they open their mouths, and someone gave them $10 million to run their dishonest, crappy website.

Meanwhile, I'm beating my head against the wall to sell 1-2 books a day, at $0.35 income to me per book.

This makes me both depressed and, I have to admit, kind of angry.

But I know envy is a sin, so I shall try to stop thinking along those lines.

Jane, I grew up in places that were segregated, and later in places where racism was a real problem. That world no longer exists, except for the odd NBA owner. Racism is no burden in the society I live in, it is not practiced there. Today the people who should racism are it's biggest believers. It will be their downfall, but I'm not sure how long that will take.

henry

Shout, not should.

daddy

Just caught a segment of Chris Wallace between another "wise Latina" and a white female litigant who brought the recent Anti-AA case to the Supremes.

I thought the white lady did a fine, non-passionate job of praising the decision, whereas the Latina lady said it is Jim Crow all over again. Guess I'm a racist.

Also caught the Howie Kurtz segment where he was interviewing some Media commentary type trying to explain why David Gregory is stinking up the ratings. Thought that was an interesting exercise in 2 guys trying desperately to say Gregory stinks without actually saying Gregory stinks.

You made me feel better. Thanks

great suggestion from a commenter on that ignorant post of Ann's:

The Godfather said...
So here's the deal: Next Sunday we have a round table "conversation on race in America", with Bundy, Sterling, Rev. Wright, and Sen. Reid, moderated by Al Sharpton. I'd listen to that even it was on MSNBC.

That would definitely get everything all straightened out.

that was written by Judith Curry

" As glaring errors were uncovered (especially the Himalayan glaciers) and the IPCC failed to respond, I started to question whether it was possible to salvage the IPCC and whether it should be salvaged. "

My question is why would anyone want to salvage them? IMO, they have cost the world trillions.

Time to recalibrate. Giving birth to a book is a hell of an achievement. That is what you are responsible for. Since you cannot control the whims of others, be proud of what you accomplished.

The bonus of your books is that now you have something you can throw at someone any time you want.

Pager,

Another excellent read. Seems the web is full of great reads today, following the lead of Clarice. Loved this from Judith Curry:

What happened? Did the skeptics and the oil companies and the libertarian think tanks win? No, you lost. All in the name of supporting policies that I don’t think many of you fully understand. What I want is for the climate science community to shift gears and get back to doing science, and return to an environment where debate over the science is the spice of academic life. And because of the high relevance of our field, we need to figure out how to provide the best possible scientific information and assessment of uncertainties. This means abandoning this religious adherence to consensus dogma.

Thats from 4 years ago, but unfortunately they didn't the IPCC fanclub didn't take her advice and have instead doubled down on the consensus GAIA Worship.
