"The truth is that European-style welfare states have proved more resilient, more successful at job creation, than is allowed for in America’s prevailing economic philosophy."

And that's why the Italians added the Hookers & Blow sector to their GDP estimate in order to keep the unicorns flying in EUtopia. Everybody is just so damned resilient and successful that they've agreed to eat only 60% of this years seed corn in order to increase next years crops.

Happy, happy, joy, joy Ignatz

Couldn't TM save cyberink with a one size fits all post; "Paul Krugman is a mendacious idiot....again"?

Eric in Boise2

I've long been fascinated by how mind numbingly stupid some so-called "smart" people are, and Kruggers has always been exhibit A for me.

Jack is Back!

Seems a lot of parties sceptical of the EU are winning lots of elections lately. Krug would have to switch legs while spinning plates in order to avoid that fact.

Rick B

Ignatz,

I was always puzzled as to whether the NYT subscriber base was born that stupid or whether exposure to the NYT made them that stupid. TM's constant exposure of the Happy Endings Deep Data Massage statistical cherry picking used by Krugman lends support to the second thesis, although it does not preclude the possibility that Krugman is merely reinforcing the intellectual limitations of the NYT audience.

I would note that the French tendency to align governance with corporate (union) interest in limiting employment long predates the French revolution. Adam Smith noted the tendency and its impact in The Wealth of Nations.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

Why the hell do we care what the Europeans do? Isn't it "in" to hate everyone of European descent?
Krugman needs to talk with Toure & get with the leftist program.

GMax

Wealth of Nations wasn't that written like over a 100 years ago, like the Constitution? We know what academics and journalist think about musty old documents now don't we?

There is no student loan problem in Europe. Most countries provide free or limited fee University education. No need to waste away your degree flipping burgers just to plead poverty to the collection agency. You can get your worthless degree and move right into the café society with your laptop, an unlimited supply of Euro's for coffee and kirsch because time is your friend. Grow a beard.

Beating Comandante Krugman into tasajo 'shredded
horse beef' has a certain satisfaction, but without a pro growth agenda, they'll back to
square one, next year,

Meanwhile, despite Volodya and Igor's excellent repo in Crimea and the Donbass;

Danube of Thought

One day Krugman will his place in the pantheon alongside an earlier useful idiot, John Kenneth Galbraith:

After one of his chummy sight-seeing tours of Moscow in 1984, the Harvard economist John Kenneth Galbraith wrote an article about his trip for The New Yorker. The Soviet’s “great material progress” impressed him, as did the look of “solid well-being of the people on the streets.” He dismissed as groundless the rumors that were beginning to circulate that there was trouble in paradise. Although some commentators had suggested that the Soviet Union was in crisis, even “in danger of collapse,” Galbraith brusquely dismissed such pessimism: “This I strongly doubt.”

Only the National Front, which in keeping with French tradition, is perhaps the more dirigiste

JiB,

In many European countries, student is a job as you have stated. Something we are trying to emulate, except that here Student loans substitute the government largess.

Why work a demeaning job, when your government provides you with free housing and cash. Those jobs are what immigrants are there for.

anonamom

Rick B, I was born smart, started reading the NYT, got stupid, then lived long enough to realize they were FOS about most things.

JiB, could you relink to Frederick's blog please.
I don't have the patience to go back and find it.

The nut job in Santa Barbara wouldn't get a menial job. It was beneath him. Yet he drove a BMW and lived in an apartment. His parents were supporting him. Enabling him. Why don't parents, and governments, recognize enabling is not a good thing?

Anonamom, JiB is probably busy enjoying himself, so here is Frederick's blog.

"Yet he drove a BMW and lived in an apartment."

Seen the video where he shows off his $300 Giorgio Armani shades? He just couldn't grasp why that wouldn't seal the deal with the chicks.

A little light so far considering its all been walking from one gate to the other but its 9pm here in Antwerp and we are still up - so we are all handling the lag just fine so far. He, of course, is being treated like a Prince by his aunts and his one from Bordeaux just walked in with more stuff for him.

Tomorrow we are in Antwerp center and the docks for a lunch with friends. I am going to make sure he takes some good photos to share.Traffic is a nightmare. Its all those employed lorry drivers and door to door salesmen in their company cars. If only we had the same problems as Europe.

Good Morning.

Was just watching the pretty black girl on FOX named Harris doing a segment on the UCSB shooter. She was interviewing another FOX reporter (Claudia Callen?) on location. When the on-scene reporter concluded Harris said something like she knew some other memorial activities were scheduled on campus because she went to UCSB and had kept in touch with folks on campus, and then the other reporter said that she too was an alum of UCSB. Apparently neither knew the other had been a student at UCSB.

In a normal situation you would expect them to sort of laugh and giggle and hi five about that, but you could instead tell that this tragedy really hit close to home to both of them because of their emotional attachment to the campus, and they both looked and reacted as if truly pained. I found that bit really revealing about both women.

Stephanie tortoise not the hare

So glad I smoked the pork butt yesterday. We just had a gully washer with some major lightning blow through. Put a crimp in plans to work on the patio.

I've got jury duty this week, too. At this rate, we might get the backyard finished by labor day. Ugh.

Stephanie tortoise not the hare

Hit, some enterprising butt connoisseur with pic posting skillz could alleviate your problem.

Daddy? Iggy?

The shooter wasn't ugly and he had enough bling, he really must have been an asshole.

Off to bed. Trying to get Frederick off his Dr. Who plays Minecraft or whatever the heck he is doing. Mrs. JiB and sisters are jawboning it up in 3 languages all at the same time. Enough to drive you to drink or bed and I need the sleep more than the drink:)

Have a great Memorial Day remember Veteran's Day is November 11th, not today but that doesn't mean to keep them in your prayers especially if they need the VA more than the rest of us need our primary.

daddy

The other day we were in the van driving to our hotel in Cambridge with our regular driver Peter, an English grandfather who is great. The topic became Kate Middleton, and for whatever reason we did a quick poll, who would you rather marry, Kate Upton or Kate Middleton? Princess Kate won unanimously, and then somebody said, I think Peter, "that Prince William, future King of England, married above his station in life:) Ha!

Stephanie tortoise not the hare

The shooter looks soft, though. Metrosexual. Missed his calling. Instead of wanting to be an actor, he should have aspired to boy band status. Justin Beiberish. Or Austin Maloneish.

It'd be like dating a pajama boy softy with Alex Baldwin's ego. Don't you know who I am?

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

It appears that after her pork butt experience, Steph has been bitten by Iggy's butt bug as well.

Sadly, I was roped in and had to deal with it. The K Butt pic was a truly unfortunate addition to the Bild article.

Quiz Time!

Okay, haven't started catch-up yet, but here's a quiz from my Math book from yesterday:

"Paul Halmos is a lover of language. He wrote the book How to Write Mathematics, and it has had a strong influence over the shape and from of the subject. Once, in considering the issue of whether one should end a sentence with a preposition, Halmos constructed this sentence that ends with five consecutive propositions:"

When I finish catch-up I will post the sentence, but I wonder if any JOMer's in the meantime can pump one on out. (Thats 2 in a row!)

Extraneus

Why do you need a dropbox?

Stephanie tortoise not the hare

Nah. Just know some here have certain shall we say fascinations, and I'm pretty sure it's not bicycles. Just trying to spread some good cheer!

Ah, so you have a small collection?

Stephanie tortoise not the hare

Dropbox, photobucket whatever to stash the pic to link to it without pulling a Dana-fail and leaving links to my hard drive. At least that's the way I've always posted pics on the nets.

Am I missing some other way?

Stephanie tortoise not the hare

Used to have a collection of funny pics I found online. I have a fascination with funny signs and billboards, also had stuff like Hillary's cranial rectal inversion, Obama's umbrella fail and stuff like that stashed in a dropbox account for easy access for reposting.

Hi all. We spent the week-end out west (in NH). Ha. Ha. We hosted a family and friends party for the daughter and son-in-law. Gawd,I'm so old. I used to baby-sit the cousins in attendance and the family friends now have grandchildren the same ages as the daughter and her friends were growing up in northern Maine. Hope you all also had a great week-end!

Oh,when I opened my e-mail box,I assumed that Typuspad had a really bad day on Friday. :)

Geez...or typepad,whatever. Two glasses of wine and waking up at 5:30AM.

Every pic on the web has it's own url. You can embed the pic here by linking to that url...

Take the spaces out around the brackets. Right click on any pic, then copy the image url and put it in the quote marks.

Dropbox or the like is necessary when you have a pic from your phone or camera - in that case it needs to be uploaded somewhere where it will have its own url.

Thank you for the photo of Kate, Extraneus! While there could be a thong tucked in her, er, uh, crack, it appears that the Princess is honoring the military by going commando.

cathyf

Stephanie, you posted this on the other thread:

The State caved to the teachers and the BC/BS scripts and deductibles were changed to mirror the United Plan from last year. The premiums stayed the same. Pushback works!!!
Ok, so I have a question that you may know the answer to -- According to our friend who is on the employee benefits committee at DrF's work, the key fact for Obamacare for employers is this squeeze between coverage mandates and Cadillac Tax. In order to keep the value of the insurance low enough to keep it under where the tax is triggered, the employers are going to have to jettison basically everything that's not required. Really big stuff, very important to employees, like coverage at all for spouses, better-than-minimum prescription coverage, co-pays and deductibles. (As DrF says, "How do we have to worry about a Cadillac Tax when we have Corolla Coverage?")

Classic fascism -- everything not required is prohibited.

So, Stephanie, is this your take on where this is all going as well? So the teachers got another year or two, but once the Cadillac Tax kicks in, they simply won't be able to provide what the teachers want?

Extraneus

Speaking of late attendance, no Prezzy yet.

From Wiki:

During the train trip from Washington, D.C., to Gettysburg on November 18, Lincoln remarked to John Hay that he felt weak. On the morning of November 19, Lincoln mentioned to John Nicolay that he was dizzy. In the railroad car the President rode with his secretary, John G. Nicolay, his assistant secretary, John Hay, the three members of his Cabinet who accompanied him, William Seward, John Usher and Montgomery Blair, several foreign officials and others. Hay noted that during the speech Lincoln's face had 'a ghastly color' and that he was 'sad, mournful, almost haggard.' After the speech, when Lincoln boarded the 6:30 pm train for Washington, D.C., he was feverish and weak, with a severe headache. A protracted illness followed, which included a vesicular rash and was diagnosed as a mild case of smallpox. It thus seems highly likely that Lincoln was in the prodromal period of smallpox when he delivered the Gettysburg address.

The shooter wasn't ugly and he had enough bling, he really must have been an asshole.

That was the first thing that went through my head too, Jane. "My Dad's a director. He worked on a movie called The Hunger Games. Have you heard of it?" would have opened doors with a lot of gals IMHO.

From watching part of the video, I'm guessing gals probably only chatted with him for a minute or two before running hastily for the exits.

That story is nowhere to be seen over here.

daddy

I haven't read all the other stories on the EU Election shellacking. For you guys that have, is the Press making any mention of the fact that the parties that did well are opposed to the AGW meme?

Stephanie

So, Stephanie, is this your take on where this is all going as well? So the teachers got another year or two, but once the Cadillac Tax kicks in, they simply won't be able to provide what the teachers want?

Yes. I expect the states to petition to the feds for relief for state employees though as they are :cough: underpaid tireless workers for the litle people :cough:

Exemptions are for the well connected. The cadillac tax is something that is evil in the extreme. The loss of family coverage will have families pitted against each other as the kids are forced onto the exchanges and the parents coverages are stripped bare. This is the redistribution of health care that is beneath the veneer. The kids won't realize they are getting worse coverage than their parents had all their lives and the parents will resent the youngsters for not realizing this and for not giving a damn about the situation.


Thanks for that info hit... I've always just pulled a copy down from the net to my dropbox and then linked from there. No need to worry about where to find it to relink it later.

2 America's revisited!

John Edwards, chasing ambulances again

Edwards was back in the courtroom recently, suing an emergency-room doctor for "brain damage and physical injuries that a 4-year-old Virginia boy received in December 2009 when he was an infant in the care of Pitt County Memorial Hospital," according to the Raleigh News-Observer. The plaintiffs had already won a $13 million settlement from the hospital involved; the jury deadlocked in the case against the doctor.

"I really loved being back in the courtroom," Edwards told the News-Observer. "It really felt like a gift for me."

It's not known how much Edwards will take home from the $13 million settlement in the brain damage case. But the fortunes of lawyers like him come from taking a big part — sometimes half — of multi-million dollar awards in jury trials. The bigger the award, the bigger Edwards' payday. But Edwards told the News-Observer that his work is consistent with the populist focus on poverty he emphasized in the "two Americas" message of his political campaigns.


daddy

By unpopular non-acclaim, here's the answer to my Math language Quiz:

Once, in considering the issue of whether one should end a sentence with a preposition, Halmos constructed this sentence that ends with five consecutive prepositions:

"What did you want to bring that book that I didn't want to be read to out of up for?"

Meh. If he'd a done it in the pluperfect maybe we'd have been impressed.

Found on facebook:

WHY MR. ROGERS WORE
A SWEATER?

Captain Kangaroo passed away on January 23, 2004 at age 76 , which is odd,
because he always looked to be 76. (DOB: 6/27/27 )
His death reminded me of the following story.

Some people have been a bit offended that the actor, Lee Marvin,
is buried in a grave alongside 3 and 4-star generals at
Arlington National Cemetery His marker gives his name,
rank (PVT) and service (USMC). Nothing else.
Here's a guy who was only a famous movie star who served his time,
why the heck does he rate burial with these guys?
Well, following is the amazing answer:

I always liked Lee Marvin, but didn't know the extent
of his Corps experiences.

In a time when many Hollywood stars served their country
in the armed forces often in rear echelon posts where they
were carefully protected, only to be trotted out to perform
for the cameras in war bond promotions,
Lee Marvin was a genuine hero.
He won the Navy Cross at Iwo Jima There is only one
higher Naval award... the Medal Of Honor!

If that is a surprising comment on the true character of the man,
he credits his sergeant with an even greater show of bravery.

Dialog from "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson":
His guest was Lee Marvin....
Johnny said,"Lee, I'll bet a lot of people are unaware
that you were a Marine in the initial landing at Iwo Jima ..
and that during the course of that action you earned
the Navy Cross and were severely wounded."


"Yeah, yeah... I got shot square in the bottom and they gave me
the Cross for securing a hot spot about halfway up Suribachi.
Bad thing about getting shot up on a mountain is guys getting
shot hauling you down. But, Johnny, at Iwo , I served under
the bravest man I ever knew... We both got the Cross the same day,
but what he did for his Cross made mine look cheap in comparison.
That dumb guy actually stood up on Red beach and directed his
troops to move forward and get the hell off the beach..
Bullets flying by, with mortar rounds landing everywhere and he
stood there as the main target of gunfire so that he could get his
men to safety. He did this on more than one occasion because
his men's safety was more important than his own life.

That Sergeant and I have been lifelong friends. When they brought
me off Suribachi we passed the Sergeant and he lit a smoke and
passed it to me, lying on my belly on the litter and said,
"Where'd they get you Lee?" "Well Bob....
if you make it home before me, tell Mom to sell the outhouse!"


Johnny, I'm not lying, Sergeant Keeshan was the bravest man
I ever knew.
The Sergeant's name is Bob Keeshan.
You and the world know him as Captain Kangaroo."


On another note, there was this wimpy little man
(who passed away) on PBS, gentle and quiet.. Mr. Rogers is
another of those you would least suspect of being anything
but what he now portrays to our youth.
But Mr. Rogers was a U.S. Navy Seal, combat-proven in

Vietnam with over twenty-five confirmed kills to his name.
He wore a long-sleeved sweater on TV, to cover the many
tattoos on his forearm and biceps.
He was a master in small arms and hand-to-hand combat,
able to disarm or kill in a heartbeat


After the war Mr. Rogers became an ordained Presbyterian minister

and therefore a pacifist. Vowing to never harm another human and also dedicating the rest of his life to trying to help lead children on the right path in life... He hid away the tattoos and his past life and won our hearts with his quiet wit and charm..

America's real heroes don't flaunt what they did; they quietly go about their day-to-day lives, doing what they do best. They earned our respect and the freedoms that we all enjoy.
Look around and see if you can find one of those heroes in your midst.
Often, they are the ones you'd least suspect, but would most like to have on your side if anything ever happened.

Take the time to thank anyone that has fought for our freedom. With encouragement they could be the next Captain Kangaroo or Mr. Rogers..

Alas, those are urban legends, Steph. Marvin did get a Purple Heart on Iwo, but there is no record he got the Navy Cross. Keeshan was indeed a Marine, but never saw combat. The alleged dialogue on the Carson show is not accurate. Rogers never served in the military.

Krugman and France: I am in Normandy right now, and well France's Socialist Prez (Hollandaze), begs to differ with Krugger. At the same conference tomorrow, apparently Hollandaze will urge the EU to focus on failing job creation, and he'll urge to EUCrats to cut back on the European Project, which is too remote and too dictatorial towards everyday Europeans. Hollandaze and the voters all over NW Europe and Britain don't even know of much less live in this Eurotopia Krugger describes. These lies about soialist paradise are at least an 80 year NYT tradition.

George Polya tells the story of his former student John von Neumann: "He is the only student of mine I was ever intimidated by. He was so quick. There was a seminar for advanced students in Zurich that I was teaching and von Neumann was in the class. I came to a certain theorem and I said it is not proved and it might be difficult. Von Neumann didn't say anything but after 5 minutes he raised his hand. When I called on him he went to the board and proceeded to write down the proof. After that, I was afraid of von Neumann.

"Oh, I wouldn't go that far," offered Newton. "The first theorem had an error and the second had a pathological exception."
