Since I focus on public finance, I think California is crazy because of punitive taxes and reckless spending policies. But I can understand why other people think California is crazy, period. This is a state, after all, where politicians come up with bizarre ideas such as regulating babysitting and banning Happy Meals. Not to mention […]

The bad news is that America is about to elect a statist president. But will we get Hillary’s corruption or Donald’s buffoonery? According to RealClearPolitics, Hillary Clinton will prevail, albeit by a very narrow margin, with 272 electoral votes. They have a very close race because Trump is projected to prevail in the swing states […]

I’m somewhat chagrined that my collection of libertarian-oriented humor contains more jokes created by statists to make fun of libertarians rather than the other way around. Since everyone should have the ability to laugh at themselves, I certainly don’t mind sharing clever humor mocking libertarians (such as the how-the-world-sees-libertarians collage). That being said, I would […]

After yesterday’s ponderous and detailed discussion of tax compliance, it’s time for some levity. So let’s have some fun with Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. And we’ll start with the crazy Senator from Vermont. I’m surprised that I haven’t seen more Sanders-specific humor. I’m probably missing some examples, but a quick look through my archives […]

It’s time to extend the tradition of sharing politics-related Halloween humor on October 31. Though this is only my fourth year, so maybe it’s not quite a tradition yet. Nonetheless, we’ve had some good material. There were two Halloween posts in 2011, including a cartoon about what happens when kids trick-or-treat at a statist’s house, […]

You would think Halloween would be the favorite holiday for leftists. After all, you go to other people’s houses and get free candy. But since the entire process is voluntary, that spoils the fun for our coercion-loving statist friends. Which may explain why a lot of Halloween humor has a libertarian bent. My favorite example […]

I wish the rest of the world was as wonky as me and dying to read the latest data on the Laffer Curve, or something like that. Alas, it seems like everybody is focused on which statist will be confiscating our earnings and trying to dictate our lives for the next four years. So I’ll […]

Today’s entry is in the running for the all-time best political humor. It surpasses the GM Obummer car, though it probably doesn’t quite beat out the Iowahawk video of the Pelosi GTxi SS/RT. Think about the image below as part III of the anti-libertarian humor series, with Parts I and II here and here. If […]

I haven’t said much about the losses/scandal at MF Global. If Jon Corzine or any of his people committed crimes, I hope they spend the rest of their lives in jail, hopefully with big burly biker cellmates. And if this was just a case of bad investments, then I’m glad there was no bailout. Maybe […]

I’m not even sure why this is funny. Maybe it’s the context. Was it put together by somebody in the United Kingdom, who is irritated by the he way Sarkozy and Merkel are turning a bad fiscal crisis into a worse fiscal crisis and trying to blame England? That’s possible, and we know the Brits […]

I still think the policy video at this link is the funniest one I’ve ever watched, but this parody is extremely clever. If you like amusing videos, these Tim Hawkins videos on home schooling and the government candyman are also great.

Given the turmoil in Europe, I suppose I should say something serious about Greece, economics, and public policy. But I can’t resist borrowing some humor from the Zerohedge website. Here’s a somewhat non-PC (but hilarious) map of how the Greeks view Europe. There are several more maps at this site, but the two others I […]

Writing for the Huffington Post, some guy named Jonathan Bines does a good job of poking fun at Republicans with a GOP-to-English dictionary. His list of definitions is not quite as amusing as this video mocking libertarians (we should all learn to laugh at ourselves), but it’s still worth sharing. Here are his best entries. […]

I haven’t been paying much attention to the protests in New York City and elsewhere (though that will change if they began to interfere with my commute). Indeed, I’m very sympathetic to their outrage about corrupt bailouts and crony capitalism. But these people don’t draw the right conclusions. They complain about the problems caused by […]

I don’t mean jokes about the Slovenian political system, though I’m sure it would be a target-rich environment since politicians all over the world are easy to mock. Instead, I happen to be in Slovenia and it’s time to share the best political jokes from America’s late-night talk shows (something I do periodically, as you […]

I’ve tried my hand at satire, but this is much snarkier and very amusing. Well done.

Okay, “collapsing” is a big exaggeration, but we’re heading in the wrong direction and we know really bad things will happen if we don’t reverse course. But the crowd in Washington has – at best – tapped on the brakes so we’re  perhaps going the wrong way at a slightly slower rate of speed. My […]

This cartoon is not new, but it succinctly captures what happened with that part of the TARP bailout. The only thing missing is some way of showing the government officials and political insiders who received undeserved wealth while the Fannie-Freddie scam was operating.

At least this form of stimulus might work.

Here’s a great one-liner from Craig Ferguson, one of the late-night TV talk show hosts. Bedbugs were also found in government buildings in Washington D.C. I can’t believe they have to deal with those blood-sucking pests. Poor bedbugs. I’m not sure if he’s referring to politicians, bureaucrats, or both. Regardless, his jab is right on […]

I received this joke today. It’s definitely worth passing on. I don’t want to spoil the punch line, so I’ll just say it would be more amusing if there actually was a choice two years ago.   ============= Guy goes into a bar, there’s a robot bartender.     The robot says, “What will you have?”     The […]

These came in an email. I can’t vouch for their veracity, but a few of them were amusing enough to share.   The liberals are asking us to give Obama time. We agree . . . and wethink 25 to life would be appropriate. –Jay Leno   America needs Obamacare like Nancy Pelosi needs a […]

Or maybe I should say darken your day, depending on how you interpret what’s on the t-shirt. Because the message is a tad bit risque, you have to click the icon for a full-size image.

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.   Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at night.”  So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.     Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?”   So they […]

The kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very excited.    Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on productive salesmanship.    Little Sally led off: “I sold girl scout cookies and I made $30,” she said proudly, “My sales approach was to appeal to the customer’s civil spirit […]

In fairness, we were getting the same medicine during the Bush years. My only other thought it that Dr. Obama is soon going to prescribe suppositories for taxpayers.

On a more serious level, this isn’t funny, but definitely a well-done cartoon. When I do a post on the article that accompanied this cartoon, there definitely won’t be anything to laugh about.

 I realize, of course, that this is actually very un-funny when you think about it, but it’s the best I can do. To darken your day, I just checked the intrade.com betting site, and the market is guessing that there’s a two-in-three chance of this turkey getting approved. By the way, the nice folks at […]
