I would like to take just a moment to review some of my favorites from the year.
- How Can you Defend Capitalism - That one is pretty self-explanatory and was a quick, fun write.
- Helicopter Government - This was my first attempt to coin a term ... we're still waiting for it to take off. Helicopter parents... paternalism...Helicopter Government. Makes sense right?
- Hegemony Christmas - It wouldn't be the holidays without a little word play. By the way, I capitalize "united States" that way for a reason. Clever huh?
- Jamaica is a Harsh Mistress - My love affair with Robert Heinlein begins with the New Year. That won't be the last we're hearing of him.
- I published a two-part series on Keynesian Fallacies. I don't think I have gotten to quite all of them yet, so stay tuned.
- Change In Which We Can Believe - More uber clever word play and some awesome graphics. Spoiler Alert: It's gold!
- I observed that Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich would make an awesome, real-life Pinky and the Brain team.
- I tried to point out the core fallacy of central planning and became the subject of a douchey rant on a philosophy blog. Then I responded, pretty solidly I might add.
- I equated Warren Buffet to James Taggart.
- I stood up for the humble moonshiner.
- I laid into the Penny4NASA movement in a series of posts.
- I wrote a critically acclaimed (by which I mean one guy really liked it) piece on Mandatory Blood Donation following an afternoon on the donation cot.
- Heinlein showed up again, foreshadowing Cash for Clunkers in The Door Into Summer.
- I wrote an article on the how to argue with liberals. I misspelled "tenet" in the title, and the liberals on reddit had a good time with that.
- I tried to define capitalism my way - big mistake according to the comments.
- I wrapped up the year with a review of the new Atlas Shrugged movie.
So thanks again for stopping by. Here's to another year.
