by Lee Ohanianvia California on Your Mind
Tuesday, April 16, 2019

“Medicare for All.” “Healthcare is a right, not a privilege.” “You will never be denied treatment under single-payer healthcare.”

The Ethics Of Charles Koch

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Charles [Koch] is a true believer, whose free-market beliefs are unquestionably self-interested--but also undeniably sincere. His value system is apparent in all aspects of his company, including Koch's lobbying operation. Until the early 1990s, the company didn't have a Washington presence; this, one former Koch lobbyist said, reflected Charles's inherent distrust of politicians and his anti-government bent.

All I remember is that the neo-Nazis were having a parade, and getting in the Blues Brothers’ way, and the whole thing was treated as farce. They were clearly a bunch of losers and idiots, not even worthy of fear. They were a punchline, the butt of a joke.
