“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Obama Never Rests

President Obama took time out today from his gruesome schedule of monitoring world events, saving jobs, stopping foreclosures and saving the republic and advancing Western Civilization, to make his picks for the NCAA men's and women's basketball tournaments that start this week.

Obama videotaped a "March Madness" segment for ESPN; it will be broadcast Wednesday morning.

It is the hallmark and Obama presidential tradition since 2009, his first year in office, to break for some b-ball.


  1. F..... Loser.
    What kind of a turdball would vote for this guy?

    ...oh, yeah,
    that would be Rufus.


  2. I've often wondered what makes Japanese people tick and now I know... Geiger Counters!

  3. Caroline Baum on the fallacy of Keynesian Earthquake Theory: "Japan won’t be better off -- richer, as a nation -- as a result of the rebuilding effort. Housing starts will increase, but the housing stock won’t. The same goes for factories and office buildings. A nation isn’t richer when it has to allocate scarce resources to rebuilding. Just think how the money could have been used, in ways only entrepreneurs can envision, rather than rebuild what was destroyed"

  4. Yeah, but as the Japanese say:

    "If something happens to your girlfriend, be patient, another one will be floating by shortly."

    Quack quack.

  5. Rufus is invincibly ignorant, for sure.
