Overnight Open Thread (18 Mar 2017(

Fed's rate hikes are really a bullish validation of Trumponomics. Oh don't say that to Obama fluffers. They think Trump has inherited this recent rise in economic numbers. They won't want to believe this.

And the fact is, the economy was losing steam going into this year, before Donald Trump stepped into the Oval Office. Yes, it's true, since Trump was elected the job-market has perked up, with February's 235,000 new payroll positions a pleasant upside surprise. And business confidence is soaring.

But Obama-era economic growth rates provide no reason at all for rate hikes.

In the fourth quarter, Obama's last as president, real GDP grew just 1.9%, which equaled the mediocre pace set for the entire year and for all of Obama's presidency.


Video Games

Give me a break. Why I'm giving 'Mass Effect: Andromeda' a hard pass: It's more of the same colonialism.

A more realistic beef with this game is here. Mass Effect: Andromeda's weird animations won't get fixed with day-one patch. Although, part of that problem could be this. A cosplayer with no video game experience was the lead facial animator.

Chris Evans

It must be so hard to be this brave in Hollywood. Chris Evans is ready to fight. Good luck with that chump. Just so you know, I won't be going to any of your movies.

Chuck Berry

Damn. Chuck Berry passed away today at the age of 90.

Guns

Might be a good time to start gun shopping. How Donald Trump shot the gun industry in the gut.

Long Hair

Real-life Rapunzel has more than 4 pounds of hair. I'd hate to have that shampoo bill.

RS-25 Engine Test

360 view if your browser supports it.

Privilege Tax

Haha, um no. A proposal has been making its way through the social justice sewer system to have white people pay a 5% privilege tax. How about a dumbassery tax?

Taxes and Work

I thought this was self evident. CBO analyst: Higher taxes and government programs decrease incentive to work.
