Washington, is, of course, a long-running Asshole Contest. Paul Ryan can take some consolation in that he will at least get some prominent positioning in the encyclopedia.

*“How Government ‘Works’”, Part 1* by Bill Bonner “There are many theories to explain government. Most are nothing but scams, justifications, and puffery. One tries to put something over on the common man…the other claims it was for his own good…and the third pretends that he’d be lost without it. Most are not really ‘theories’ at all…but prescriptions, blueprints for creating the kind of government the ‘theorist’ would like to have. Not surprisingly, the blueprints flatter his intellect and engage his imagination. The “social contract,” for example, is a fraud. You can’t have a co... more »

"How Government “Works”, Part II"

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 12 hours ago
*"How Government “Works”, Part II"* by Bill Bonner "In the case of Egypt, people listened and obeyed - at least, as much as they did - because Pharaoh was, in theory, a god. In the case of Rome - with the exception of Caligula’s claims - and the Mongol empires, the theory was similarly simple, though different. Tamerlane made no claim to divinity. He merely made it clear what he would do to you if you resisted him. Towns that submitted were generally governed passably, according to the standards of the day…and taxed, but not razed to the ground. Those that contested his authority ... more »

Jupiter Last Friday

Tommaso Dorigo at Science 2.0 - Physical Sciences - 12 hours ago
Visual observation of the planets of our solar system has always been an appealing pastime for amateur astronomers, but the digital era has taken away a little bit of glamour to this activity. Until 30 years ago you could spot with your eye more detail than was at reach of normal photography even for large telescopes, so amateur astronomers could contribute to planetary science by producing detailed drawings of the surface of Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, and Mars. read more

This seems like good news: A new poll out Monday offers more evidence that the scandals plaguing Gov. Eric Greitens may be dragging down Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley in his neck-and-neck U.S. Senate race against Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill. Fifty-four percent of Missouri voters want Greitens out of office, according to an Emerson College survey. His approval rating has fallen to just 33 percent, compared to 46 percent who disapprove of his job performance....

"The BAD Stage of Inflation Has Officially Hit"

*"The BAD Stage of Inflation Has Officially Hit"* by Phoenix Capital "The BAD stage of inflation has officially hit. As I have noted previously, inflation enters the financial system in stages. The first stage involves a jump in prices paid by producers. This means that those firms responsible for manufacturing goods and services suddenly see a sharp spike in the cost of the basic materials they use to build/ manufacture finished products. That process began in early 2016 and accelerated throughout 2017 into this year. The next round of inflation… the BAD one… occurs when these price... more »
