Naomi, please, stop it, you\’re killing me.
And here there are more problems, because Obama – who taught law at Chicago for a decade – is embedded in the mindset known as the Chicago School.
You\’re really calling Obama a member of the Chicago School? Seriously?
Look, just because he comes from the place, taught at the law school, doesn\’t mean that he\’s not a meddling Statist. If only he weren\’t.
While Obama talks about toughening trade rules with China, Griffin has been bending the few barriers that do exist. Despite sanctions prohibiting the sale of police equipment, Citadel has been pouring money into controversial China-based security companies that are putting the local population under unprecedented levels of surveillance.
That\’s even more ridiculous. The rules forbid the sale of police equipment. There are no rules on investing in companies in China that make such.
There are rules that forbid me from importing plants into the US. There are no rules forbidding me from investing in a farm in the US that grows plants.
True enough. But before Obama can purge Washington of the scourge of Friedmanism, he has some ideological house cleaning of his own to do.
The scourge of Friedmanism? Can we just line up a few of the man\’s achievements?
The ending of the draft.
The creation of the EITC.
Unsuccessful at this, but a voice of reason against the War on Drugs.
Impeccably liberal (in both senses of the word) policies which have made the US a vastly better place to live.
This is a scourge?
