Playboy’s Amusing – and Accurate – Assessment of Republicans, Democrats, and Libertarians

I will always have fond feelings for Playboy, though not for the stereotypical reason. My appreciation for the magazine is largely based on the fact that I got a very nice honorarium from the German version back in the 1990s for writing an assessment of Bill Clinton’s likely approach to economic policy (confession: he turned […]

Libertarian Humor for a Dismal Topic

I’m a bleeding heart libertarian in that I get most upset about statist policies that make life harder for disadvantaged people so that folks with more money can get undeserved goodies.

Second, I’m going to add to my collection of humor that pokes fun at libertarians. Cartoons on libertarian ice fishing and libertarian lifeguards. A mosaic showing 24 types of libertarians. A poster […]

A Genuine Christmas Present from President Obama

Since we enjoyed yesterday a libertarian version of the night-before-Christmas story, let’s continue today with the holiday spirit. During previous Christmas seasons, I’ve shared Keynesian Christmas carols, a great Jay Leno joke, a video of Santa as a small business owner dealing with red tape, and a look at the all-important question of whether Santa […]
