This is Colbert being a liberal putz. FOX has been ringing the bell on economic issues since its creation.
Daily reminder that free black men in the Confederate States were 3 times more likely to own slaves than white people. Daily reminder that Anthony Johnson, a black man, was the person who set the precedent that legalized slavery in America.
Scientists successfully generate gasoline out of thin air
Breakthrough technology takes carbon, hydrogen and oxygen from CO2 and water in the air to create methanol and then converts it into gasoline.
We’ll never hear about this again. And we may never hear from those scientists again.
Big Oil’s gonna be piiiiiiiiissed
Somebody go put these folks in the witness protection program before they get hits put on them by ExxonMobil
I’ve actually heard of a man mysteriously disappearing after he refused to the government to not go through with his making of a substitute of gasoline with water. So everybody needs to reblog. Seriously.
I signed it. I’m fed up with this government. Republicans, Democrats, all of them.
Will this petition do anything?
But I will stand up and tell this tyrannical government that it is stretching its tentacles too far into my life.
Sign too, if you wish.
This is going nowhere.
I’m curious to see if this can reach 10 million notes by election day
TEN MILLION BY ELECTION DAY AND EVERYONE GETS A COOKIE
Drones as in unmanned aircraft, or Obama cult members?
Oh, really dumbass? I changed the title into something that is true and absolutely important to know, and you fucking try to cover it up with “Mitt Romney sucks”? How typical of you liberal asswipes to cover up the important facts and reverting to namecalling and insults to hide the fact that you are a moron without a clue what’s going on. I bet you couldn’t name all the presidents back from Kennedy to now.
10 million notes before election day. Impressive.
Please go away.
Could you please post the paper online?
In Season 1 Episode 3, Applejack is shown working herself to exhaustion kicking trees to shake the apples out of them. In the closing moments of the episode, Twilight is shown using her magic to lift the apples out of an entire field of apple trees all at once and get them barrelled up in a few…
You are forgetting to apply basic microeconomic concepts of opportunity cost and comparative advantage. Sure Twilight Sparkle has an absolute advantage on picking apples, which is to say nothing of Applejack’s absolute advantage in raising a crop and producing other marketable commodities such as apple-derived cuisine and spirits, but Twilight Sparkle’s opportunity cost of picking apples would be not instead devoting her time and energy studying or doing another scholarly task. Twilight, over all other ponies, has the least opportunity cost in academic affairs such as researching esoteric lore, summarizing reports and other matters that may be too arcane to be accomplished by anypony other than Celestia’s protégée. Twilight Sparkle has a comparative advantage in academics and magic, and Applejack has a comparative advantage in agriculture, and, by specializing according to one’s comparative advantage and freely trading with others, everypony is able to consume beyond what their individual productive possibilities would allow. Through economoc mechanics, the free market allows for economic growth and social harmony to emerge through rational self-interest and voluntary exchange; traditional values are quite irrelevant in explaining socio-economic behavior.
Buttercup Dew, I love you and your blog, but, as an anarcho-capitalist, I get turned off whenever you suggest such Luddite notions and contempt towards markets; whenever I read your posts on economics, you sound more and more like a socialist, while ignoring how laissez-faire capitalism has expanded society’s economic opportunities.
I’m tracking the Republican and Conservative tag but all there is on there is hate and its getting real old real quick.
