Morning Coffee Reading for August 11, 2011

Here's your morning coffee reading for today:
  • An excellent New York Post column by Kurt Schlichter regarding the announced 2012 film focusing on the raid by the Navy SEALs who successfully killed Osama bin Laden:

  • Republican Congressional candidate Karen Harrington isn't pulling any punches as she sets her sights for Debbie Wasserman Schultz:
NewsMax | Harrington: Wasserman Schultz Anti-GOP Charges 'Absurd'
  • New York Times' op-ed columnist Thomas Friedman wrote an unbelievably arrogant and misguided article on the debt ceiling issue. Seriously. It starts out with "Until you read the following news article, we'll be stuck in a world of hurt" and gets worse from there. First of all, this isn't a "news article," it is an opinion piece. Friedman then wanders into a wacky little fantasy world governed by the standard liberal talking's seriously such a mess, you really ought to read it (and then enjoy the giggles at @greggutfeld's post on this article).
New York Times | The Day Our Leaders Got Unstuck

Good quote someone left me on YouTube: "smartest socialist couldn't make socialism work, but dumbest capitalist could make capitalism work."Thu Aug 11 03:58:05 via Twitter for iPad

      1. Who Are The Real Economist?

        The world of economics is divided between 16th century blood sucking practitioners who believe in Keynesian economics and Austrian economics. There are some other schools in the mix that are variations of the monetarist or Chicago School but in today’s environment center stage is dominated by the Austrians and Keynesians, and we vehemently disagree on everything.

        Some might argue for the classical economist and their standard bearer Irving Fisher, but who cares. The big fight is the Keynesians and Austrians. So who is the winner?
