Friday’s Pick Three (9-6-13)


Another post of the Friday irregular feature!

Today’s Three includes a bogus comparison, a bloviating Russian, and a possible $40 million boondoggle.

The workers' tools1. Libertarians are like communists? Yep, the people on to the right of conservatives, usually over-simplified as “just wanting to be left alone”, have been compared to communists by Bloomberg News – because of the authors’ assumptions and the way that they view improbable results of libertarianism similarly.

Vladimir Putin2. Russia continues to step up its criticism of President Obama’s war rhetoric and sabre rattling. Today, Putin hinted that a U.S. attack of Syria could lead to Russia sending aid, including military hardware, to the civil war-torn country. Retaliatory actions could include things including cyber warfare, and drawing in more countries to a possible proxy war.

AM General3. The Obama administration is still wasting money on alternative-fuel vehicles. A start-up which manufactures gasoline and compressed natural gas-powered vehicles saw its troubled loan sold by the energy department, resulting in a loss estimated in the tens of millions of dollars. A lack of interest in the business was cited as the reason for the loss.
