Libertarians > RepubliCANTS and DEMONcrats 80 Politics 4/14/13 11:27pm
Bboy Bruce Lee JR
Lets be clear here. Few libertarians feel that the GOP-at-large supports making the country prosper. Rather they see a greater congruence of rhetoric between camps, and so believe that they can try to solidify a solidly "pro-market" principle among the Republicans that maybe (*FINGERS CROSSED EXTRA HARD* just maybe!) they'll stop doing things like supporting programs like Medicare Part D and o ...

Libertarians > RepubliCANTS and DEMONcrats 80 Politics 4/14/13 11:27pm
Bboy Bruce Lee JR
This is actually a really contentious topic that often gets me into bar fights at libertarian conventions. There is a lot of intra-libertarian hate about how to advance 'Liberty,' in which despite the emergent order of the movement declaring no purity tests, we routinely tar and feather the ideologically weakest. It's movement-Darwinian-ism where major organizations actively eat young whom exh ...

The S&P 500 breaks record. Blame President Obama right? 15 Politics 4/12/13 8:22pm

How about no? After all, incomes fall after financial crises, while our benchmark for poverty doesn't. So as long as wage increases come in under inflation, we should expect increasing food stamp use, especially as the US government doesn't decrease things like the federal poverty level. However, I do agree, that the stock market is a fantasy divorced from the real U.S. economy, hence why p ...

The S&P 500 breaks record. Blame President Obama right? 15 Politics 4/12/13 8:22pm
Final Lucius
While the unemployment situation has gotten better, there has been a massive deterioration of job tenure rates, and still falling real incomes. Simultaneously, the US has continued a long run trend of weakening labor market participation rates. Also, there is also some empirical evidence that a lot of people are holding off on getting jobs due to the extended period for unemployment benefits. ...

Can Someone Explain Group Game Theory? 12 Politics 4/7/13 2:27am
Christien Chalfant
Generally game theory is the study of how various 'game structures' can influence outcomes. Through looking at how various actions lead to various payoffs, there are ways at looking at how institutional or decision structure can impact decisions individuals make. 'Traditional' game theory makes a bunch of strong assumptions about humanity effectively being sociopaths, but behavioral and computatio ...

Man, this really reminds me why I generally don't care about this place. Seriously, should I just start citing random books too? I think if people don't realize to be skeptical about statistics/figures is a bad thing, but lets actually be somewhat critical here. I generally agree the fact that this is Reason/Stosell is a knock against it, anyway. Are there issues with the article? ******** ...

Well, the DC metropolitan area is also one of the most segregated, and class unequal cities in the country. Just from walking around the city should make it very clear to predominately white tourists there are areas of the city you do, and areas of the city you don't go to. Further, most of the lobbyists, politicians, and 'high rollers' are white affluent (males), while most people working ser ...

"Average" typically denotes mean. The article, and a general Google search didn't find anything specific, Again though, it's total compensation. Average salaries are still >$80,000/yr in D.C. Usually if reporting a median or mode people point it out. Otherwise simple averages (means) are taken.

Who are the 1%? Turns out the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area makes up 43% of the top 1%! ..today, for the first time, most of America's richest counties are in the Washington area. About 43 percent of "the 1 percent"—the top earners leftists say they hate—now live in 14 counties that surround the District of Columbia. Nick Sorrentino, creator of AgainstCronyCapitalism.org, notes that ...

Things that angered me 10 years out. No one seemed to care it's been 10 ******** years besides some of the crazy as balls right wingers I want to cut myself over for hanging around. Seriously Dem's, could you make the anti-war movement any more disenfranchised? It really shouldn't have been that hard. #ragequit.

There's a lot of filth in just about any fringe political movement. Most derived from philosophy ego-stroking than any sensible idea of how to progress those ideas further.
