Demagogue in Chief.

Slamming the illusory 77% statistics is nothing more than demagoguery, but it may in fact  work. Progressives love to hear this stuff and it matters not how things are measured and controlled. Just look at all the business about income distribution and how that is so sloppily measured. Elections can be won on demagoguery and the Administration is going to keep beating that false drum.

What bothers me the most is that employers are given the burden of proof to show that they did not discriminate. Guilty until proven innocent. Just another of the many ways this is not my America any more.

Notable and Quotable...Holman Jenkins in yesterday's WSJ.

 "By the same token, defenders of the traditional family are crazy to think gay marriage is the threat. The threat is the growing inability of low-skilled workers to outbid state benefit programs to be the family breadwinner."

Wonder why we stay caught in the frozen years?

I just read from my theoretical macroeconomic notes in preparation for class..."Thus, an increase in the present value of real government purchases has a negative effect on households' wealth." Could this not be one major drag on the economy as Obama adds new layer after new layer of permanent increases in government spending? How could it be otherwise?
