Wait, do you?

 

GDP shouldn't include government spending, because government can pay Joe $50K to dig a ditch, pay Jim $50K to put the dirt back in the ditch, and call that $100K of economic growth.

As if they'd just pay them $50k. Didn't Obama's stimulus jobs cost several hundred thousand each?

But the money goes back into the community... at least that's what I was told when I was doing cleanup work for the L.A. Zoo's Elephant exhibit, and getting payed $40 an hour.

Paul Krugman supports the broken window fallacy when Obama is the one causing it. He must be right.

The only wit Paul Krugman has is the ability to talk about economics as though he knows something well enough that people believe him.

Obama had opportunity to do something good, and he didn't even know it.

The Obama administration will send a letter to every public school district in the country telling them to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their chosen gender identity, as opposed to their birth certificate.

While the letter does not have the force of law, it does warn that schools that do not abide by the administration’s interpretation of civil rights law may face lawsuits or loss of federal aid.

Glad to see the feds improving the educational system, as usual.
