    Default Deck the Halls with Macro Follies

    I haven't seen this here. I needed to share! Enjoy!

    "And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works." - Bastiat

    "It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere." - Voltaire

    Hilarious. "Hark, I hear a fallacy ..." (That one's my favorite.)

    I just found it over at Bob Murphy's blog: http://consultingbyrpm.com/blog/2012...ries-foul.html

    And apparently, some people are not happy with it: http://consultingbyrpm.com/blog/2012...el-of-ink.html

    I'm glad you liked that. It didn't get many views when I posted it.

    The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are out numbered by those who vote for a living !!!!!!!

    “I have many friends in the libertarian movement who look down on those of us who get involved in political activity,”
    he acknowledged, but "eventually, if you want to bring about changes … what you have to do is participate in political
    action.
    ” -- Ron Paul


    "We do have some differences and our approaches will be different, but that makes him his own person. I mean why should he [Rand] be a clone and do everything and think just exactly as I have. I think it's an opportunity to be independent minded. We are about 99% the same on issues." "People Try To Drive Wedges Between Rand And Me." --Ron Paul

    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. - Thomas Jefferson
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    It is. It's the same guy who played Bernanke in the two Hayek vs. Keynes rap videos (which were also created by John Papola & EconStories - the same people who made this one).

    Did you notice the hayekian triangle ornament during his song?
