Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The Austerity Follies

The BLS has a new report out.

They look at regional and state unemployment numbers.  Guess which state had the worst job creation numbers over the past year?

Scott Walker's Wisconsin.

How about over the past month?  John Kasich's Ohio, Chris Christie's New Jersey and Scott Walker's Wisconsin.

When you cut public sector jobs, you increase unemployment.

This isn't complicated.
