Greed Friday

Well first of all tell me, is there some society you know that doesn’t run on greed? … What is greed? Of course none of us are greedy. It’s only the other fella that’s greedy. – Milton Friedman

If you believe that Wall Street greed crashed the American economy, you may be right. But today’s Black Friday Drudge Report headlines should disabuse you of the notion that greed is some special evil inherent to the financial sector. We are a materialist society from top to bottom. The reason Wall Street colluded with government to take advantage of Main Street (and not vice versa) had to do with ability, not greater desire. Or, as Friedman adherent Thomas Sowell would put it: “you can become the greediest person on earth and that will not increase your pay in the slightest.”

Obamacare, Good and Hard

Bill Cosby said that his father used to pass gas in the living room then blame an invisible elephant running under the couch. “And my brother,” said Cosby, “was dumb enough to look for it!”

With Obamacare, Democrats laid a big one. And they’re blaming invisible elephants.

Dutifully, the Left is looking for them.

With Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Tea Party harassment by the IRS, and the multiple eavesdropping scandals, the Obama administration and its allies deployed their usual arsenal of Orwellian language and media gimmicks, a whole army of invisible elephants.

Bush sent those guns into Mexico. Some YouTube hack set the Middle East on fire. Rogue elements of a Cincinnati office lashed out nationwide against the Tea Party. The NSA [redacted].

In the meantime, the Left pushed forward, utilizing the federal bureaucracy to implement their agenda. To cement their legacy, these utopian technocrats passed the Affordable Care Act and radically distorted 16% of the largest economy in the world.  Continue reading

Liar Liar 2: When Presidential Promises Contradict

What did the once great Chris Rock say, that the president is like “the dad of the country”?

If that’s the case, then it looks like Obama is one of those terrible dads from the movies who promises his son he’ll be at his baseball game but also tells his boss he won’t miss the important meeting occurring at the same time. Basically, he’s Jim Carrey in Liar Liar.liar liar

At least according to Dan Pfeiffer:

Promises, promises – White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer claimed Sunday that the millions of lost insurance policies under ObamaCare was the result of a prioritization of promises. President Obama, Pfeiffer said, meant to keep his promise to allow Americans to keep their policies, but that a more important promise got in the way. “[I]f the president were to allow people to have those plans be downgraded, or insurance companies to keep selling barebones plans …if he had done that he’d be violating even more important promise to the American people, that everyone would have a guarantee to access of quality affordable health insurance,” Pfeiffer told ABC’s “This Week.” Pfeiffer did not say when Obama deemed the “if you like it” pledge inoperable due to the “barebones” promise.

Anyone else now anxiously awaiting Pfeiffer’s memoir of the Obama presidency, just for his overwrought description of the scene when Obama came to this dreadful realization: Continue reading
