    Oh yeah? Well, I have (the ability to forge) a letter from *25* equally fictitious Nobel laureates who say your 14-15-17 Nobel laureates are full of shit. So there.

    Posing elite poseurs never admit they are wrong. Mistakes pile up until the whole rotten system fails in a golpe.

      Espero que un golpe de pistola.

    With no apologies to Pete Seeger;

    Where have all the laureates gone, short time passing?
    Where have all the laureates gone, just moments ago?
    Where have all the laureates gone?
    Buck Fiden paid them everyone
    Oh, when will we ever learn?
    Oh, when will we ever learn?

    And they all were named Paul Krugman.

    Nobel Prize laureates, academics, journalists, writers, scientists and such flotsam, are nothing more than clapping seals for those that pay them. Think of them as highly paid Las Vegas escorts. As such they are not able to feel shame or embarrassment. If ever reminded that yesterday they swore up and down that ‘A’ was the right thing to do, and that today they swear up and down that ‘B’ is the right thing to do, they will do a series of mental gymnastics and intellectual dancing that will obfuscate and confuse, and then they will make their getaway in the clouds of Maya that they themselves laid down. They are as trustworthy as a whore, as loyal as an adulteress, as honorable as Quisling, and as dependable as a meth addict.

      You’re being a little tough on honest whores here, comparing them to economists…

      • Mike Austin August 1, 2022, 11:08 AM

        You are right. An honest whore sets the price up front, does anything to please, pretends to enjoy herself, and at the…umm…climax of the arrangement, both parties are satisfied.

    Krugman is a fraud and always wrong.

    Nancy Pelosi needs a Noble Peace Prize.

    I want to go on record now that Pelosi, should the CCP go to war, is the Quisling and the Molotov of our day. Her name will be the political identifier of what Tom-foolery began the war.

      If so may the pilots of her plane have enough soul left in them to dive straight into the ocean at full throttle and may she become chum.

        Inedible even by transitioning whales.

        Maybe she’ll seek asylum in Taiwan? Please…oh pleeeezzzee.

          “Transitioning whales:” It will take years, YEARS!, of therapy to expunge that image.
