America's least-respected economist blurts again

July 17, 2013 - Harry Eagar
In a review of one of his crummy books (Book Review 174: "America's Housing Boom and Bust," Nov 27, 2010), I once called Thomas Sowell America's least-respected economist. I think that's true.

But that was mild. It is not obvious that having a Chicago Ph.D. in economics qualifies one specially to opine about Trayvon Martin (heck, it isn't even obvious that it specially qualifies one to opine about economics, but that's a topic for another day), but Sowell did anyway.

Wonkette's Alex Ruthrauff provided a funny takedown. Nut sentence:

"Thomas Sowell earns a good living by expounding silly, unsupportable, poorly conceived “ideas” that appeal to lunatic right-wingers and make everyone else’s heads explode."

America, land of opportunity.

Supposedly, John F. Kennedy's father once said, when someone described him as "Irish," that his family had been in America for generations, when was he going to be described as "American."

Obama is an American. 'nuff said.

The vast majority of 'Obama bux' went to corporations.

You know, the guys who flushed Detroit city down the tubes by being totally incompetent at running the Big 3 auto companies.

The city lost 2/3 of its population because business managers -- not the government -- were incapable.

Probably because he is a black man raised under segregation.

I know, no liberal likes to talk about working hard, saving, etc. just get me those Obama bux.

Worked like a champ in Detroit, Chicago next, then pick any Dem controlled state.
