Buggy Writing from Cyberspace Exile Again
Or more precisely said: now that poor prof bug has been evicted from the Economist's View blog --- and yes, in case you want to know, for untold and unmentionable sins such as posting evidence-driven comments that contradicted the pulpit-pounding pieties of the left-wing posters there, a good seven of whom scribble out their utterly predictable dogmas dozens of times a day, and on virtually every subject-under-the-sun --- he, a wretched pariah-guy once more, finds himself shamed another time with oh-so-awful ostracism by a tetchy-touchy academic.
Nothing new here.
By now, such banishment part-and-parcel of the buggy persona --- his buzz-buzz flittings in blogsphere life doomed, alas, to retaliatory swats sooner or later; or so it seems.
No Matter. Not to Worry. By Now, An Old Buggy Habit
Like the previous academic-run blogs from which the buggy prof has been banned--- Econ-Log and the Marginal Revolution, both libertarian sites --- Professor Mark Thoma, a good economist with left-wing liberal tendencies, but with a temper and full of self-illusion (it seems) about his idolizing Magnificent Seven monomaniacal following as though it counts for something intellectually sound, never mind important--- appears to misunderstand what judicious and illuminating exchanges should consist of.
- Well not, you understand, strings of left-wing (or right-wing) ex cathedra assertions spittled out as straight-from-the-horse's-mouth scripture, and whatever the topic.
- Nor, come to that, blank-verse reiterations of them as with one of the Seven Samurai-Sling-Posters at Economist's View, a talented wordsmith, but a dogmatist through and through who is something of a slavish follower of Karl Marx . . . inevitable social-laws and all that guarantee a future of wondrous love-thy-neighbor full-tilt Socialism. Who, believe it or not, assured prof bug a couple of months ago that the slaughter of 100 million people by Communist regimes after 1918 was really just a learning-experience for a better and brighter Communism of the future.
- And certainly not, to end this list of posting-poseurs, endless links to hundreds of full-length Paul Krugman op-eds splattered over and over, dozens of times daily --- and in each and every thread --- by a raging narcissist full of raw fury toward any dissenters from her simpleton left-wing credos.
Trust Me Here. No Exaggeration!
A fruitcake poster with super-potent narcissistic urges, among which impulsive thrusts ( so she duly informed us) were her dazzling good-looks, she insisted for all this that she had a mental-calling in life: to better the world with her brainwave offerings, which she would would slosh about hour after hour here, there, and everywhere at Economist's View.
