Comments Off

Comments Off

Hard to tell with these european right of center parties. Sometimes they’re libertarian, and sometimes they’re nationalist. Still shows how sick Europe is that a party opposed to joining euro is showing big gains.

‎3.3 Million New Poor People in One Year

Comments Off

Quite an accomplishment to have that many people fall below the poverty line. Keynesian left thinks mentioning the poor alot means they own them and their votes and the moral high ground. And it might because their supporters are simply data immune. For those who aren’t, here’s the data:

Someone Else Sees the College Bubble Being Popped

Comments Off
