  • AP report: The ethanol push is "an ecological disaster" [View news story]
    If we want a pure earth we will just have to give up all carbon based energy. Of course, many other countries will not so, as Hillary says, what difference does it make. Government knows best. :-(

  • Private Payrolls Rose This September [View article]

  • Vehicle Miles Driven: Population-Adjusted Fractionally Off Its Post-Crisis Low [View article]
    Makes sense. When gas was a dollar fifty a gallon, we could ride 60 miles to the Sam's Club and Costco and save enough on the purchases to make it worthwhile. At three fifty a gallon, the big stores aren't competitive with the local Wal-marts and supermarkets. And the mrs. uses mail order to reduce her shopping trips to the big city to a few times a year.

  • QE3: The Fed's Faustian Bargain For The U.S. Economy [View article]
    "I can't for the life of me understand how economists can sustain the cognitive dissonance necessary to believe that mathematical certainty doesn't apply to the US economy now."

    When dealing with the theoretical, anything is possible depending on your (unproven) assumptions. Let us eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow, we crash.

    "When you pay taxes for services, every department that touches those monies takes a cut because people need to be paid."

    Bingo! And we're at the point where some of these toll takers are very well compensated.
