Clarence Thomas has a lot of....unusual positions.  I wonder if his beliefs about blacks in America are any way reflected about his homosexuality in America?

Robin is a very good writer. He clarifies things really well.

I can totally see how his beliefs about race would apply to other minorities.

It's so weird. Granted, Kennedy went kinda floral, and I do wish he stuck more to the solid jurisprudence stuff, but the dissent was WACKY.

The legend of ECH notwithstanding, I'm considering being a cook in Norway now.

Sorry, it's gonna be like this for a while.

The dissents read like a bad reddit troll.

Someone was whining on my friend's page, and he was all, "you better step off, or someone's going to drop a house on you."


I really need to remember that line.

Well, I have learned very much about this Thwack person.  :lulz:

The question is, does he deserve minimum wage, or would that raise inflation?  :?

You'd have to ask a scientist.


There's no way to answer the question right now, because there is no scientific way to understand economics, by definition.

Did you see the piece on NPR that put it to a blind taste test?  It was really interesting.  The takeaway was that, if washed well enough first, it basically really does taste like a tough piece of calamari.

The magic of deep frying!

That's some solidly aggressive assbaggery right there.

Quick question: If economics is not a science, and by your mode of thought there can't possibly be a science of economics, then how do you suggest we analyze the factors which determine the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services?

Portland: Today someone said "I know people who can't do bone broth because they have histamine intolerance".

Soup.  They can't eat soup.

Okay... Let's back up.


I'm pretty sure you've agreed that there is a structure for economics to behave as a science, and that there are people who treat it as a science. You've also adamantly held that the majority of self-professed economists don't act that way.

So, I think we have all agreed on two points

1) ECONOMICS CAN BE TREATED AS A SCIENCE.  SOME DO.

2) A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T TREAT ECONOMICS AS A SCIENCE.  SOME DO.



Thwack, where are you currently finding disagreement?
