Someone came across a review of the Ron Paul Curriculum. It got forwarded to me.

Written by Gary North on September 3, 2016

ZIRP

John Maynard Keynes was a crackpot. So are his followers. All of them. I can hear the shocked response. “But, Dr. North, you’re not supposed to say such things. It’s not polite. It shows a lack of etiquette. People who say such things are themselves dismissed as crackpots.” To which I respond: “Dismissed by whom?” […]

Trophy wives are ornaments for husbands. Men marry them because they want to be high-visibility winners among other men. “He is a winner. He got her.” They also hope for this reaction: “I didn’t get a trophy wife. I’m not a winner.” A trophy wife is a status good: limited availability, heavy demand. Spectacularly good […]
