Ben Stein: Cell phones are a drag on the economy
Sunday Morning tv - 8/2/15 - CBS News
Quote:
Worker productivity is how much each worker produces per unit of time.
It rose very rapidly for decades after 1941, and, recently, the rate of rise has been tepid.
Even if you don't believe the connection between productivity and wages,
(or between productivity and unemployment)...

productivity has continued to rise since the birth of the cell-phone...

So what I am reading here is... Gen X'ers want the babyboomers to retire from politics so that they can finally have their day.

I hear you... But here's the thing... Millennials have already discussed this - on the latest social media thingy that you still haven't heard about that will fade off by the time you will - and we decided we're skipping you guys. We've contracted the babyboomers - the ones we've taught to use email - and they agreed it's for the best. They are already expanding the White House basement.

If he's being pushed out because he's not partisan enough, I can only imagine that his replacement is going to be swell.

Meanwhile the base is apoplectic.. Another Nigerian, oh noes. But Carson is just a tool to trip Trump, cause confusion and consternation, so when the power behind the curtain offers up the chosen, the base will gasp him like he's the messiah.

No, I'm saying we won't know until the chosen is revealed.

It's like that study they did, where they put a particular scent on the first female that a male rat is allowed to fuck, and for the rest of his life he will show a preference for that scent, even if it's a horrible death/sewage smell. Our nation is always going to want to fuck Bush/Clinton again, no matter how many better lays might be out there.

Thanks for that visual image, Clod. I'm going to clear my mental palate with zombie death in Walking Dead.

That explains wacko extremists. They only believe the first thing they are told. So a wacko extremist has much in common with a rat. Both want to fuck others.

Mr & Mr Whiner lead GOP candidates in Denver...

Campaigns erupt over greenrooms at third GOP debate
Aides to Chris Christie and Rand Paul complain their work spaces look like bathrooms.
Politico - Alex Isenstadt - 10/27/15
Quote:
DENVER, Colo. — Just hours before GOP candidates take the stage here Wednesday night,
tensions over the Republican National Committee’s handling of the debates are flaring anew.
...
During a tense 30-minute meeting at the Coors Event Center,
which was described by three sources present,
several lower-polling campaigns lashed out at the RNC.
They accused the committee of allotting them less-than-hospitable greenroom spaces
while unfairly giving lavish ones to higher-polling candidates,
such as Donald Trump and Ben Carson.
I'm imagining the responses of the other candidates:
Trump: Mine is bigger than yours ... It's so great.
Carson: A large mind needs a large space for intellectual reasoning.
Rubio: Gee, I don't know what to make of it ... yet.
