DOOM: Now in pine, teaberry, and sandalwood scents!

DOOOOM

Jobless claims come in at 403K. The journos have become sensitive to the "unexpectedly!" mockery they're getting, so now they resort to clumsier phrasings: "just miss expectations".

Insty: "Really? They just mooch and loot? Do tell."

Our standard of living has undergone a long, steep drop during the reign of His Majesty Barack the Just.

Louisiana bans cash transactions for second-hand sales? I don’t see how this would ever stand up in court. “This note is legal tender for all debts, public and private,” and all that.

The Greek rioters have this in common with the Occupy Wall Street hippies here at home: they can’t really explain what they hope to accomplish, or what problems they hope to solve.

Rubio grills Timmah, serves him medium-well with a side of macaroni salad.

The NLRB hiding emails from Rep. Issa’s committee on the Boeing case. Most transparent government EVAH! But then...this is the same administration that made their “transparency in government” meeting a secret.

Yeah, about that “income gap” thing? The biggest gap is...in Washington, D.C.

You know what we need? More inflation! Run those printing-presses until they catch fire, baby!

Inflation is a thing of the past? You might live to eat those words, chum.

No further commentary needed, really.

I guarantee it's going to be a close election because the economy is not where it wants to be and even though I believe all the choices we've made have been the right ones, we're still going through difficult circumstances. That means people who may be sympathetic to my point of view still kind of feel like, yeah, but it still hasn't gotten done yet. This is going to be a close election and a very important one for the American people. The thing I hope the most is that everyone is going to be paying close attention to the debate that takes place because it could determine not just what happens over the next four years, but what'll happen over the next 20 or 30 years.

The disappointment of Generation "O". I don't have much pity for Obama voters. He never made a secret of who he was or what he wanted for the country. Too many people projected their own wishes and desires upon him rather than paying attention to the man himself. They that sow the wind shall reap the whirlwind.

Teh Krugman's not-so-excellent adventure.

The Eurozone argument now boils down to two philosophical camps: prudence or reckless abandon. I predict that prudence will lose, as it almost always does in situations like this.

The gold standard never dies. (This is the libertarian/Austrian economist Lew Rockwell, not the neo-Nazi George Rockwell, please note. Like Jake Blues, I hate Illinois Nazis.)

ObamaCare racks up more casualties.

Europe’s real crisis is not financial. Neither is ours, come to that: our problems are social and cultural; our dire finances are a symptom of a deeper illness.

It’s a little late for the Europeans to start worrying about what does and does not violate the terms of the Maastricht Treaty -- the entire Euro project has been full of cheats, tricks, and lies right from the start. Whenever the terms of the treaty seemed to burdensome, the Eurocrats just cleared their throats and looked the other way.

One of the reasons I spend so much time on the European sovereign debt crisis is that it has some dire implications here at home. Everything is connected in this brave new world.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- running the numbers on their bailouts.

Harry Reid: The people serve the government, not the other way around. (That's really what he's saying if you listen closely.) Thanks for giving this jackwagon another term, Nevada.

The End Times will begin in Costa Mesa, California. Please plan accordingly.

Young’s assessment was like Jesus’s return in the Book of Revelation. There were bowls of blood. Avenging angels. Goat-men. A thing with, like, seven heads and 10 horns.
