"We have now sunk to a depth at which re-statement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men." Orwell
"Men are so simple of mind and so dominated by immediate needs that the deceitful man can easily find those ready to be deceived."
MachiavelliThe fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one... credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality.
An increasing # of ppl get their info from the intranets.....and the survey sayssssss!!!!.... that the most educated read......the Drudge Report website!http://www.flcourier.com/fleditorial/8349-flex-your-political-musclesRegards,PTp.s. My new homeboy, Bruce Bartlett, dropped some knowledge today about how Repubicans (inlcuding Romney; read his quotes in the article) have been embracing facets of your beloved Keynesianism when the time was right. Seems sometimes supply side is the answer, and sometimes the Keynesians know the deal.....http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/05/29/republican-keynesians/
Sorry, PT: until there's a study saying visitors to Drudge are actually better informed than, say, visitors to Washington Monthly, your claim is meaningless. The study notes a higher percentage of bachelor's degrees @ Drudge; you might agree that says next to nothing about level of knowledge. Probably all from Liberty University, or TCU, right? But, okay, it's interesting, and makes me curious. And I'm happy to see that the NPR website has the greatest increase in traffic. I'd seen the stuff about Rs and Keynes. In fact, I have a post about it -- well, at least as it relates to something The Rominee let slip -- for tomorrow.
When choosing where to get information I ask myself (after reading,listening or viewing) "Did I learn anything from this?" Life is too short to waste on garbage disguised as "news".DD
