Common Sense-ical and whatnot
From a Recent Walter Williams column:
"I buy more from my grocer than he buys from me, and I bet it's the same with you and your grocer. That means we have a trade deficit with our grocers. Does our perpetual grocer trade deficit portend doom?"
read more. please.

Deep, man.. deep.
Seriously though - I just found a link to an awesome site where people send in an anonymous postcard which they collect in batches and post. There are smoe really interesting/sad/moving/introspective ones up there..

I had a discussion with Angela a months ago where I Was trying to make the point that businesses often need government to screw over people, and government is usually more than willnig to comply. I didn't have anything really specific as an example, but I ran into this article from Walter Williams, describing how a few gasoline retailers cost Maryland gas buyers millions of dollars through higher prices (a nickel at a time).

I got friends.. in low places
Or actually, not so low places. I got a postcard from my friend Elan, who moved out to San Fran last year. Its funny who you do and don't end up keeping in touch with. Anyways, hey there Elan - if perchance you come across my blog.
Last Sunday (May Day), while shopping at DSW/Whole Foods across from Union Square, there were a bunch of protesters and May Day supporters out protesting. One of the groups of people had a sign that said the word 'Bush', with a Swastika in place of the S.
Now.. as i'm reminded on Catallarchy, Nazi stood for 'National Socialist Workers Party' of Germany.
So.. perhaps I am the only one who finds it the slightest bit amusing that at a May Day rally, you'd be making fun of someone by calling them a socialist..
