After the Axe Effect now comes the Axing of evil. And it comes in form of a poem. Nice, though I would have preferred to use „comrade“ in the last line. But we won’t bother about wordings in part time poetry when times are hard. Hard for David Flum who actually lost his job. Evil […]

„If Keynes were alive today, what would he think of President Obama’s fiscal policies?“, Allan Meltzer of Carnegie Mellon was asked in an interview published on the cnn website. And he answered that Keynes would not be very happy because „Keynes was opposed to large structural deficits“ and contrary to the current administration understood that […]

„A columnist at Newsmax advocates a military coup to overthrow the government of the United States.“ Actually the columinist claimed not to be advocating but to be merely “describing” what could happen. Well this „only decribing“ tactic never worked too long legally. I remember in my youth there was a techzine which just „described“ how […]

Politicians have to justify their decisions. Especially when they are accused by their political opponents that they „voted for Obamacare“. And they should answer in a clear understandable way and not in a wishy-washy confusing statement about versions and possibilities. In fact the HCR is too important to have no clear opinion. But if you […]

I am not totally alone with me ignorance of the Internet Traditions: „the Servant of the Secret Shrill might not be Aware of All Internet Traditions“ (link no longer found) too. And every politician probably is as well as they have to much to do with sophistically weakening bills, reforms, parties and their leaders. At […]

It seems as if the author of this blog is visiting other websites to give a rough abstract to motivate her users to visit this pages. What a good idea. Even worse in her abstracts she is tending to be slightly ironic. I do not support such attacks against honest American science and so I […]

Edmund Standing

The blog author is leading a kind of privat war against „The Deceptions and Distortions of BNP activist Beverley Kerry“. This is something which happens from time to time in the blogosphere, but this time it contains the charge of „racism, neo-Nazis, and neo-Nazi ideology“ and so has a political dimension. As I don’t know […]

Z-Word Blog

Haiti still is one of the leading stories and so it is in this blog (or is it „Z blog“ in this case?). This time the rescue mission of the Israel Defense Forces in Haiti is mentioned and shown in an embedded Youtube video. As the situation in Haiti is still really bad this blog […]
