There’s something wrong with the Nobel Prize Committee in Sweden. They’ve issued Nobel Prizes to former Vice President Al Gore for making a Power Point presentation on Global Warming (or was if for inventing the internet?), . . . to President Obama for being black, . . . and to Paul Krugman for economics.
It’s hard to say which of these Nobel Prizes is more absurd. You might think that a Nobel Prize to Mr. Krugman for economics makes some sense since, after all, Mr. Krugman does have a PhD in economics.
But judging from Mr. Krugman’s recent comments, it’s beginning to appear that Mr. Krugman may have purchased his PhD from some online university.
For example, a recent article from Casey Daily Dispatch reports:
“If you favor sound money, you’re a sadomonetarist, according to New York Times columnist Paul Krugman. The Nobel Prize winner says he doesn’t use the term ‘just to be colorful.’ No, he uses the term ‘advisedly,’ and defines it as ‘an attitude, common among monetary officials and commentators, that involves a visceral dislike for low interest rates and easy money, even when unemployment is high and inflation is low.’”
Well, I’m a bit of a “commentator,” and my “visceral dislike” is not for low interest rates or even “easy money”. (What sort of beast would object to “easy money”?)
My visceral dislike is for robbing creditors with lies andfiat currencies.
My visceral dislike is for fiat currency since our fiat monetary system has expanded the size and power of the government to the detriment of America’s prosperity and liberty. My visceral dislike for fiat current is based on the fact that the fiat currency is implicitly prohibited by Article 1.10.1 of the Constitution of the United States.
My visceral dislike for fiat currency is based on the fact that all fiat currencies fail; our fiat dollar will eventually fail (and maybe not so long from now), collapse our economy and possibly plunge our nation into chaos or even disintegration.
It may be true that my “visceral dislike” for fiat currency makes me “sadomontetarist“. But if so, it also follows that Paul Krugman and those who believe his claptrap in support of fiat currency, low interest rates and “easy money” are “masomontarists” who have a visceral desire to live in a world where robbing creditors, destruction of the American dream, economic collapse and possible national disintegration are commonplace, painful but still desirable.
Krugman’s “masomonetarists” are guilty of “levying war” against The United States of America or at least giving “aid and comfort” to our enemies. They are thus guilty of treason.
I don’t know what, exactly, the Nobel Prize Committee is guilty of, but somebody’s gotta make ’em stop handing out Nobel Prizes to morons. (Who knows? Maybe their next Nobel Prize will go to G.W. Bush for being the world’s best painter.)
