Economics Corner with Paul 

If you are the central authority in an economy and you increase the tax on a certain behavior, then you want to discourage that behavior.

If you reduce the tax on a behavior, then you want to encourage it.

The cheaper some good or behavior is, then more people will do it.

George W. Bush claims he wants to encourage a culture of life, and "life" in general (I wonder if he uses antibacterial soap?).

George W. Bush and the republican party are extremely opposed to taxing inheritance, which they believe to be a "death tax".

Therefore, the republican party and George W. Bush believe they are using economic policy to encourage death.

Therefore George W. Bush is lying when he says he wants to create a culture of life. If that were true, he would sharply increase the death tax, to discourage death. Ostensibly, George W. Bush is using economic policy to encourage as many Americans to die as soon as possible.

George W. Bush believes anyone who wants as many Americans to die as soon as possible is a terrorist.

Therefore, George W. Bush believes himself to be a terrorist.

Therefore George W. Bush, who claims to be both in favor of a "Culture of Life" and an enemy of all terrorists is both pro-death and a terrorist, which we know from his choice of economic policies.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
