According to Paul Krugman of The New York Times, we need another $800 billion stimulus. The first one, you see, wasn’t big enough. “The stimulus right now makes almost no difference,” Krugman recently said at the World Knowledge Forum in Seoul. And for those who worry about the deficit, he had these soothing words: “What does a trillion dollars of borrowing do to the U.S. long-run fiscal position?”

Lying left-wing scumbag. The correct question is “What does ten trillion (or, more likely when the socialist in the White House gets done, twenty trillion dollars of borrowing do?

But since Krugman, supposedly at one time a “respectable” thinker who hasn’t been that for decades, knows only how to lie for the Red Banner at the Gray Lady, I doubt we can expect anything else but snake oil and outright lies at this point.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. From a recent post on another site:

    Introducing Our Idiot of the Day column, aka “Stupe de Jour”

    The Daily Cannibal is pleased to announce a new daily feature — well, okay, maybe semi-daily — in which we elect and dissect the most egregious fool to pop up on our radar each day. Criteria for selection include:

    1. Just plain dumb.

    2. Just plain wrong.

    3. Both of the above.

    Other rules:

    1. No picking on the deluded. They really can’t help it. We intend to break this rule a lot if it involves politicians, actors or professional athletes. It’s okay to be stupid, but you advertise it at your own risk.

    2. Free and fair rebuttal. The Daily Cannibal will guarantee anyone featured in “Stupe de Jour” ample space on the front page of the section for rebuttal without editing. That’s more than the general media will do.

    3. Paul Krugman cannot be the Stupe de Jour more than twice a week.

    Okay, it’s a plug. But I thought you’d enjoy my DP prescience.

  2. nemo, the only problem that I have with your setup is that Paul Krugman is no idiot. He knows exactly what he is doing, and he does it pretty close to as well as it can be done. His job is to provide top cover for the Liberal Fascists. Whatever tormenting of facts and logic is necessary to make black seem white, up seem down, debt seem like revenue, hate seem like love, and slavery seem like freedom, he provides each week. He is far worse than a moron – he is an associate of the Ministry of Truth, an eyes-open paid propagandist for evil.

  3. Categorizing him as an idiot based on his misleading columns is still probably more useful in limiting his influence amongst the stoops. If you make the claim that he is ‘evil’, you open yourself to attack as a flake, no matter the truth.
