Utterly Meaningless » Blog Archive » SORT-OF OT: I GUESS I’M A LIBERAL

    Filed at 7:01 am under by dcobranchi

    Hollins University associate professor of political science Ed Lynch thinks he’s defined what it means to be a liberal. Among his choices:

    You uphold a woman’s right to choose, unless a woman chooses adoption, chooses to be a stay-at-home mom, chooses to homeschool, or chooses to start a business.

    I don’t know of a single liberal who does any of those things. In fact, I know quite a few liberal home educators. What would Assoc. Prof. Lynch say about that? Then there’s also this gem:

    You think that raising taxes will reduce the budget deficit.

    OK, then. I’d add another one. You might be a liberal if you think Ed Lynch is an idiot.

    So call me a liberal.

    BTW- why do non-thinking conservatives (such as the idiot quoted above) put so much faith in the Laffer curve? And even assuming that Laffer was correct, why are they 100 percent convinced that we’re on the high side of said curve? Do you want to drive one of these guys crazy? Ask them what happens to the deficit if we cut taxes to zero. They’re like the robot Norman in the original Star Trek episode “I, Mudd.”
