Revenge of the Sith

Saw Star Wars Episode III today.

Low expectations, I had.
Disappointed, I was.

Dan Drezner's guest bloggers have numerous posts on John Bolton and anti-Americanism. Here's one. I find the comments much more interesting and convincing than the post.

It seems to me that anti-administration politics have turned this guy into a symbol of all that invites anti-Americanism, and then made his being a symbol of all that engenders anti-Americanism a reason not to appoint him. In my opinion, the partisan contention has provided more rhetorical fuel and validation to anti-Americanism than his appointment ever could.

Social Security Thought

Fully privatizing social security would basically index benefits to economic growth during one’s life (working life plus retirement years) rather than speculating on the productivity of future generations. This would eliminate the problem of declining productivity growth and demographic changes causing shortfalls.

The system also would provide a bonus to those who have loved ones whom do not use their full benefit. As the majority gains wealth, the question is: In the future will there be Wealth Affirmative Action? Will there be a tougher job market for Trust Fund Babies?


Huffinton Blog

After seeing several posts on huffinton's celebrity group blog, most recently this one, I decided to check it out.

At a glance, it reminds me of The Onion.

That might be a compliment. I like The Onion. However, I almost never visit it.

Compare and Contrast.
