Walter Williams Displaces Cavuto Atop Idiots Pyramid

I thought it would die out, but instead it gets more outrageous.

If you don't know him, Walter Williams is an alleged economist, a professor of economics at George Mason University. He's also someone with whom I've had previous disagreements, but I'm sure he's a great economist, it's just that he has yet to show it.

So when I came across his column tonight, the title, More votes for those who pay taxes, immediately caused me to suspect that, as a previously diagnosed moron, he'd taken a turn for the worse..

You can read it for yourself if you wish because I'm not going to deal with such idiocy here, but here's what I wrote Mr. Williams, and I anxiously await his reply…

Titled: WOW, that's un-American

I mean this in the nicest way possible – I'm fed up with you morons – Cavuto, Beck, Limbaugh,. Steyn. Is this how you counter the "tax the rich crowd,{ your group wants to tax the poor? And now your own bright idea is to disenfranchise them too? Oh I'm sorry, that's their choice under your plan. Brilliant! What a great way to win converts. Have you come up with a catchy slogan yet? For your information… way more people pay income tax than were ever supposed to when the amendment was passed. Instead of being happy that almost half the people have now escaped the tyranny, your lot has a case of misery loves company – except most of those who pay aren't even miserable – except at the thought that others are free. And by the way, where is the cutoff? How about the guy who pays fifty bucks? He's OK I assume? How about ten? One? It's bad enough that you dopes could think like this, but then you feel comfortable writing about it and even doing on-air editorials? May I assume that you also reinforce one another in private? I confess that I've never thought much of you as an economist, but as a constitutionalist, keep your day job.

Then I blocked Williams' picture from appearing in my browser!

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

  1. TedWest says:

    And Mr. Williams' reply:"Thanks for your wise complimentary comments and support. Cheers."That's about as good a reply as I could have expected from a guy who doesn't even know how to use a comma!

  2. Ben says:

    Dr. Williams is an educator. He expresses the basics of complex economic concepts in terms the average skull full of mush university student can comprehend.

  3. TedWest says:

    Do you have a degree in economics? If not, you may not be aware that Williams is an idiot, and I've told him so before.I've had several nutty econ professors. One, for example, preached at length (thirty years ago) about how Doctor Pepper was going to dominate the soft drink market – because it was addictive. And if WIlliams is a Doctor, he's more of the Pepper variety. And I might add that apart from that pronouncement, this professor had even less worth. Though he did have an advanced degree.Economics is not a science. in fact it's more fanciful than fact. Not to mention that Williams' proposal has nothing to do with economics, a field in which, in my opinion, he's possibly mislead more people than he's enlightened.But I'm not interested in what you think of Williams, I'm interested in determining conclusively whether you're of sound mind by asking if you agree with him that the number of votes one gets to cast should be based on the amount of taxes one pays?

  4. Ben says:

    Economics was my minor field, Poly. Sci. was my major. I do not believe that the right to vote should be limited to property owners or income tax payers, and I doubt very much that Dr. Williams does. He tends to use sarcasm and hyperbole in his presentation of important concepts. I do believe that the right to vote should be limited to persons who are intelligent, rational and informed. That leaves out many if not most women & Liberals as well as the clinically insane & morons.

  5. TedWest says:

    Ben, regarding Williams, you're being obsequious, and it's bordering on sycophancy, And he's so undeserving. Here's why…Williams isn't talking economics in that column, he's talking taxes – which is his favorite subject. But as such, he's no more an expert than you are, so he's merely making his deranged musings public. And since you don't agree, why would you make excuses for the man? I'm sure you realize that an advanced degree means nothing outside one's field and often as not, within it? So please spare me any further outpouring of respect for this idiot.But now that said, if you were to take Williams out of your last reply, this could be the start of a beautiful friendship!?!

  6. Ben says:

    Taxation falls within the fields of political science and economics. Neither field has a monopoly on it. The "Dismal Science" is a critical part of political science because it bears heavily on public policy and its outcomes. To be direct about it, Mark Steyn and W.E. Williams are two of my favorite Limbaugh substitutes.

  7. TedWest says:

    Then I owe it to you to be direct in return – Williams' dimwittedness as a writer is only exceeded by his dullness as an on-air commentator. I pity his students.I noticed that you haven't been exactly clear about whether you've read Williams' column. If you haven't, you have no business reacting to what I said because you're merely speculating – shall we say, "pulling a Williams?"If you have read the column then you know that what you said about taxation relating to economics is irrelevant since Williams wasn't discussing taxation in an economic sense in any way whatsoever. He was merely running off at the keyboard, and he quickly fell off the edge.By the way, I don't have any favorite substitutes for Limbaugh, I just get angry when he's not there – and not infrequently when he is there. No health care crisis in this country? Indeed. Bite it, Rush.And you're probably not aware that I hold Limbaugh responsible for where we are at this point in time – he covered for Bush and made Obama possible. But I do admit he's still the best we've got.

  8. Ben says:

    Plenty of water passed under he bridge since I read one of his columns, but I never had strong disagreement with any of those I read in the past. We disagree about Dr. Williams, I think he is a good economist and educator.

  9. Just checking in to read the outrage of the day…

  10. TedWest says:

    Ben, please don't take what I'm about to say in the wrong way, but go somewhere and die. I mean, I like uninformed fools as much as the next guy, but in all my years online, you're the first one who's spent time arguing about something in which his familiarity approaches absolute zero.So you're just defending Williams in concept? At least now I see why you like him. Oh, and I was thinking about you twenty minutes ago. That's when I was eating breakfast and heard Mark Steyn expounding on fecal matter. He was simply brilliant – at least I was sure you'd think so.I'll give you this though – you and Williams are the face of conservatives. Which is why I hold them in minimally higher regard than I do liberals. Now may I suggest you simply stick your tuning fork somewhere suitable for inclusion in Mark Steyn's theme of the day?

  11. TedWest says:

    Well Zak, I have to say that I had high hopes for Ole Ben at one point, but now I have to admit I've never been happier to see you! I'd be even more effusive, but I happened by your blog last week, and I saw Ken there. Suit yourself, but I can't be entertained by someone who entertains Ken, and I believe you are familiar with the circumstances behind my saying that?

  12. Ben says:

    Since this communication has deteriorated to the usual level maintained by LibTurds, I will decline further response.

  13. TedWest says:

    I wish you'd thought of that earlier. As it is, you're like Shake 'N' Bake, and I helped

  14. I think Williams was being sarcastic- I can't control who visits my blog & I sometimes let idiots post just to show what idiots they are and for comic relief.

  15. TedWest says:

    I think Williams was being sarcastic-Now were back to where we were last week. I can't control who visits my blog.And now we're still further back…Again I wonder aloud – do any of you people know who you're talking to?

  16. I think that I'm right on most things…

  17. TedWest says:

    Everyone thinks that. What else you got?

  18. Darcy says:

    Children… be nice.btw, I think I'm right on most things too.

  19. TedWest says:

    I rest my case.

    Can I rest my head on your chest?

  20. LOL- I'm sexier than Ted. 😮

  21. Darcy says:

    And one more thing. How do you block someone's picture from coming up in your browser? Because every time I look at your blog, OBamm-barry's picture comes up and it makes me want to hurl.

  22. Darcy says:

    Really? How do you know?

  23. TedWest says:

    Really? How do you know? Because he's right on most things!

  24. TedWest says:

    What browser do you use? If it's Firefox or IE, I can help. Otherwise, you're on your own.There's a picture of Obama on MY blog? Did I put it there?

  25. TedWest says:

    no. OK, so maybe then?

  26. You will let me know I'm sure, 😉 I'm very confident I – I eat right and work out at a gym- my dad lived the Jack LaLane program and looked the part.

  27. Darcy says:

    All I know is that you wear a leather jacket and Ted is a face on Mt. Rushmore. Me? I am a bunny. And Ted, Obama is looking at me right now. He's at the bottom of this page right below where I'm typing and he's wearing a surgeons cap and gown.
