Late Night: Piketty’s Failure of Nerve, or Why Marx Is Still the Boogeyman

By: Sunday July 27, 2014 8:00 pm

Piketty’s emphatic denial of Marxian influence on his work – and the fact that he felt compelled to make it in the first place – is quite telling. The decades of heavy-duty demonizing dumped on Marx by capitalism’s cheerleaders, particularly in the United States, have scared people away from studying his work to the point where even a French economist is quick to deny being contaminated by the thoughts of the Great Satanic Boogeyman.

Say Anything: Words Matt Entenza Lives By, Apparently

By: Sunday July 27, 2014 5:00 pm

Poor Matt Entenza. He thought he could run yet another sleazy and expensive backstabbing of a campaign against a fellow DFLer, only to be tripped up by the fact that many politically-minded Minnesota Democrats have a) long and accurate memories, and b) an ability to find the proofs that confirm the accuracy of those memories.

Come Saturday Morning: Fleet Farm’s Family Affair in MN-08

By: Saturday July 26, 2014 6:45 am

By: Saturday July 19, 2014 6:45 am

Are you smart? Do you have extensive experience in engineering? Would you like to live and work in the Rocky Mountains? Do you bathe regularly? (Well, maybe not the latter, but it’d likely help.)

If you answered “yes” to the first three questions, Solar Roadways might have a deal for you.

Late Night: Lincoln’s Remarks on Labor and Capital

By: Sunday July 13, 2014 8:00 pm

Abe Lincoln’s words have been appropriated by various groups for various purposes, and words have often been put in his mouth by people seeking to use him and his reputation to further their own causes. But the recent Upworthy spotlighting of his remarks on labor and capital, found in his December 1861 annual message to Congress, is a pretty accurate representation of his thoughts on the matter.

Come Saturday Morning: So Why Won’t You Sue Wonkette, Larry?

By: Saturday July 12, 2014 6:45 am

Ho-hum. Another day, another excretion from Larry Klayman against “Aaron Ruper” (he means Aaron Rupar), Ken Avidor (who Klayman insists on calling by another name even though Avidor’s legal name is Ken Avidor), and various other entities who dared talk about what was mentioned by a certain Ohio judge in the course of Klayman’s efforts to appeal prior judicial decisions regarding custody of and visitation rights for Klayman’s children:

Come Saturday Morning: The Saudis and 9/11 – More New Info?
