A proven millionaire. A real homophobe. The ruler we fear.

Jane Corwin for Congress | Protecting the Status Quo & Taking Your Tax Dollars

 

Corwin Endorsed by Recognizable Old Person

Boone swears by the healing power of leatherERIE COUNTY – In response to her heroic support for Paul Ryan’s budget plan, which would end Medicare in favor of an innovative program called “widespread human suffering,” Jane Corwin has been given an award by Pat Boone, spokesman for the 60-Plus association. Boone was a famous singer in the days before it was learned that music could convey human emotions.

The 60-Plus association, which is non-partisan, unlike those commies at AARP, supports candidates who promote policies that matter to the elderly, like domestic offshore oil drilling, privatizing social security, ending the estate tax, and repeatedly misleading the public about Obamacare with millions of dollars in ads, paid for by undisclosed donors who probably aren’t the Koch brothers.

  1. Well, one could do something sensible like saying that ‘properly inflating your tires’ was the solution for $4-5 gallon gas, all the while,telling us they had no qualms with such prices, that really seems sensible.

  2. @ miguel cervantes:

    I’m reading the site and laughing until

    Increase domestic energy by burning the homeless and having gross fat people ride a treadmill that’s hooked into the grid.
    Get Washington out of the business of regulating anything, at any time, for any reason

    that second item
    and I’m thinking
    that somehow, somewhere
    Dyer is thinking . . . . . yeah

    artificial constraint

    ‘cept for Tricare o’course

  3. @ CK MacLeod:

    just a little thing where JED was telling me that government only functions in markets as an artificial constraint, which to a frog that only minored in eco undergrad, still sounds like she never got past Adam Smith, even though I think she’s supposed to have taken an undergrad eco major.

  4. @ fuster:
    Think it’s more she’s an ultra-Hayekian. Incidentally, is an interesting critique of Hayek embedded in that Fukuyama book, also taking in Locke and Hobbes. F also has some amusing things to say about certain very low tax, small government, no gun control “libertarian paradises” in contemporary Africa.

  5. It’s fatuous to compare any regime in Africa, certainly not the likes of Somalia or the Congo, as anything close to Hayek’s vision, then again he convinced himself when working for Qadaffi, that Libya was some
    laboratory for reform,

  6. Hayek was a math guy

    as a social economist he was a fruitbasket

    or did I misunderstand and you were meaning that JED has an ultra-thing for the other one
    (which may explain why she’s never responded to my offer of matrimony.)

  7. @ miguel cervantes:
    F doesn’t make any claim about Hayek approving of the Sudan, Somalia, et al. He does point out that they offer some indication that life is more complex than some ultra-pseudo-Hayek-hacks sometimes seem to suggest. Whether Hayek’s own vision actually coheres or was based on some critical misconceptions is also an open question.

    I can’t find any evidence that Fukuyama ever worked for Qaddafi. He apparently never even visited Libya. Apparently, there was a proposal put forward by an independent group to send a diverse delegation of Americans, including F and Richard Perle among many others, to Libya, but the project was never fulfilled. So I’m thinking you may be expanding upon something you read in Commentary, but please enlighten me if you happen to have something concrete. F did endorse the anti-Qaddafi intervention.

  8. @ miguel cervantes:
    How does that article support your earlier statement?

    then again he convinced himself when working for Qadaffi, that Libya was some
    laboratory for reform,

    The answer is that it doesn’t.

    I searched last night and this morning for any details on F’s relationship to the Monitor Group Libya project, and the closest thing to a statement by F is in an unsourced characterization from the undependable Michael Rubin in the undependable Contentions blog. Numerous leading U.S. academics and intellectuals were also involved – including guys you probably like, like Perle, who is said to have reported on his interactions with the Libyan regime to Dick Cheney.

  9. Fukuyama’s willing to deride the campaign for democracy in Iraq, going so far as to misrepresent the statements of Krauthammer, makes me consider his sincerity suspect, btw unlike Perle, I haven’t him speaking
    much about events in Misurata lately.

  10. Hayek was all about civil society, not about these tribal confederations
    that represent themselves as nations,

  11. Ah, yes, Fukuyama, hopefully not indicative of most Hegelians, misreads the moment when both Road to Serfdom and Constitution arises, as a counterwait to the apex of state planning typified by
    Britain’s subsequent adoption of the NHS, it’s also when Orwell wrote ‘Animal Farm’ as an allegory, to the rise of Stalinism.

  12. @ miguel cervantes:
    You don’t need Hayek or any elaborate theory to nurture doubts about the “apex of state planning.”

    Critiques of Hayek frequently emphasize that he made certain predictions, based on supposed universal laws and ineluctable tendencies, that were not borne out – unless you believe that modern European social democracy amounts to totalitarian fascism. This problem is in keeping with the notion that it’s Hayek, not his critics, who was trapped within a particular historical moment. Many also believe that his picture of signaling and rational action in a free market is faulty. F’s review touches on but hardly exhausts this response to Hayek. Instead of comprehending and overcoming such criticism, contemporary rightwing ideologues – from JED to Beck – tend to ignore it completely, and instead turn an abstractly Hayekian version of the way societies work or ought to work into a fetish.

  13. Hayek was just restating Tocqueville’s view of ‘soft despotism’ by administrative dictat, which is typical of the European model, it ignores that his complaint was more with the dirigiste Austrian model of Wagner
    and Schmoller, than it ever was with Keynes.

  14. @ CK MacLeod:

    it’s inevitable that within 60,000 or 80,000 or so years social democracy will result in fascism under certain non-real conditions, so JED is justified and consistent in not admitting to being wrong and ignoring reality in this as in so many other things.
