11.20.10 Wordplay

Kudos to my neighbor Tom Gabriel for this:

Did you know that, the words “race car” spelled backwards still spells “race
car”?

And that “eat” is the only word that, if you take the first letter and move
it to the last, spells its own past tense, “ate”?

And if you rearrange the letters in “Tea Party Republicans,” and add just a
few more letters, it spells: “Shut the fuck up you free-loading,
progress-blocking, benefit-grabbing, resource-sucking, violent hypocrites,
and deal with the fact that you nearly wrecked the country under Bush and
that our president is black, so try and get over it.”

Isn’t that interesting?

    I wonder if undergrads across the nation are using a new edition of the Baumol and Blinder textbook that I read for my microeconomics 101 class. How is that Blinder, writing in the Wall Street Journal that extending the tax cuts for those making over $250,000 a year would not create as many jobs as other measures, is now considered a left-wing nutcase??!?

    “Consider three different ways to add a dollar to the budget deficit: increase unemployment benefits by $1, give a $1 tax cut to someone earning $50,000 a year, or give a $1 tax cut to someone earning $5 million a year.

    While the immediate impacts on the budget are identical, the near-term spending impacts are not. The unemployed worker struggling to make ends meet will likely spend the entire dollar right away. The $50,000 earner probably will spend the lion’s share of it, saving just a bit —that’s what most Americans do. But the $5,000,000 earner probably will save most of the new-found dollar.”
