Abbott and Hockey have achieved what many thought impossible: a true consensus. Unfortunately for the coalition government, the consensus is entirely against them. The Abbott government’s agenda has been driven by three major claims, all of them economic in nature. Let’s see how economists view these three themes:
1) There is a budget emergency Number of economists who agree: zero
2) The federal government has a debt crisis Number of economists who agree: zero
3) Carbon pricing is an economic wrecking ball Number of economists who agree: zero”
He really ought to just come out and say “I’m proposing this shit budget because it’s what conservative cunts in the UK and USA would do,” because that would at least have some semblance of truth. See also: if Abbott just announced “I self-pleasure myself to copies of Margaret Thatcher’s economic policy.”
I have not really well-thought-out thoughts on the Scottish Independence Vote coming up this fall, but here’s Karen Gillan with some Scottish colloquialisms that barely sound English to mine ears.
David Foster Wallace’s “Consider the Lobster” is a suggested search result for “best essays of all time.” Hell yeah.
'Lobster' is good, but I think his best is 'Supposedly Fun Thing.' The Federer essay is right there too.
It’s not even the best essay in that essay collection. It’s not bad, but it’s not his best. It’s like saying “Westward the Course of Empire Takes Its Way” is his best long-form fiction.
I knew it was gonna be a weird summer, but somehow I’m not sure I was prepared for the depth of feeling behind it.
There’s been another stupid storm, hasn’t there?
