Quote Of The Day

From The Man Known As Sundance:

“Unfortunately, most financial pundits are prone to talking down the strength of the U.S. economy. It’s maddening. They spend all day mining for coal nuggets while currently surrounded by diamonds.”

That’s because they want to be able to say “I TOLD you so!” when the economy slows (as it must, eventually).  Or because they’re NeverTrumpers, Anti-Reaganites or socialists.

But read the whole article.  It’s brilliant.

Quote Of The Day

From girlyman actor [some overlap]  Ryan Gosling:

“I think women are better than men. They are stronger. More evolved … You can tell especially when you have daughters and you see their early stages, they are just leaps and bounds beyond boys immediately.”

…and yet these “less-evolved” boys somehow manage to overtake girls later in life, and go on to invent things like the Internet, concrete, the steam engine, AC power [10 million other inventions omitted for brevity].  Probably because patriarchy.

Just to underline my “girlyman” point:

“I’ve always liked women more. I was brought up by my mother and older sister… I found my way into dance class… My home life now is mostly women. They are better than us. They make me better.”
