FLASH: FoxNews doesn’t know Bastiat

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Sheperd Smith on FoxNews is now saying that Sandy has a silver lining to all those in construction who are unemployed.


Guess he never heard of our old friend Freddie!

“The broken window fallacy” — Frédéric Bastiat Ce qu’on voit et ce qu’on ne voit pas (That Which Is Seen and That Which Is Unseen) 1850 

All that money spent on repairs by individuals is lost to other purposes. The Federal Disaster Aid is just printed. 

Argh!

Guilford County voters say they voted for the wrong candidate

*** begin quote *** 

On Monday, several voters complained that their electronic ballot machine cast the wrong vote. All the complaints were made by people who voted at the Bur-Mil Park polling location.

One of the voters, Sher Coromalis, says she cast her ballot for Governor Mitt Romney, but every time she entered her vote it defaulted to President Obama.

“I was so upset that this could happen,” said Coromalis.

Guilford County Board of Elections Director George Gilbert says the problem arises every election. It can be resolved after the machine is re-calibrated by poll workers.

“It’s not a conspiracy it’s just a machine that needs to be corrected,” Gilbert said.

Wasn’t it Stalin who just wanted to count the votes?

Convenient that they error favors the D.

Sounds like “barbara streisand” to me!
