Trump Humor

Donald Trump should be an easy target for political humorists, but I’ve mostly been disappointed in the quality of the anti-Trump satire. That may be because comedians think he’s a raging conservative, so their jokes based on that theme strike someone like me (who fears Trump is a big-government populist) as senseless. After all, clever […]

This Executive Order By President Trump Would Be A Biggie

This attempt at parody isn’t a criticism [or praise] of President Trump’s daily Executive Orders, many, if not most of which, on the face of them have great merit.  Most of them sound great and as a conservative Republican I agree with almost all …

The Netherlands – We’re Number Two

Hat tip:  Bret Baier’s Special Report on the Fox News ChannelWell, taking a cue from President Trump’s mantra of “America first” and  “make America great again”, the Netherlands in the following video seems to be saying, if you can’t beat the…

Libertarian Humor: Everything You Need to Know about Statism in One Image

When trying to educate people about the superiority of free enterprise over statism, I generally show them long-run data comparing market-oriented jurisdictions with those that have state-driven economies. Here are some of my favorite examples. North Korea vs. South Korea Cuba vs. Chile Ukraine vs. Poland Hong Kong vs. Argentina Singapore vs. Jamaica It’s my […]

A Secret Glimpse at Life Inside a Bureaucracy

More than two years ago, I shared a couple of humorous images showing the languorous lifestyle of lazy bureaucrats. While those images were amusing, they didn’t really capture the true nature of bureaucracy. For a more accurate look at life inside Leviathan, here’s a video showing an unfortunate woman trying to get a permit from […]

Libertarian Christmas vs Socialist Christmas

Back in 2014, I looked at the vitally important battle over whether Santa Claus is a liberal or conservative. Let’s now broaden that debate and contemplate the difference between libertarian Christmas and socialist Christmas. We’ll start with this much-deserved jab at socialists, the people who continue to believe in coerced equality even though such systems […]

Tales Tweet Of The Week – Dec. 9, 2016

Well, it’s that time once again to find out who has won the coveted Tales Tweet of the Week award. 

“But Tales”, you may ask, “there hasn’t been a Tales Tweet of the Week award in months”.  True my friends, but there are two excuses, I mean reasons, for that.  First there are very few people out there who can meet the ultra stringent standards to qualify for this award – i.e., it must be a tweet on twitter.  And second a tweet must occur during the time the Tales law firm of Dewey, Cheatem and Howe, the firm that chooses the Tales Tweet of the Week, is not on vacation [and good luck with that].

This week’s winner is not a first time winner, is not a two-timer, but this week’s winner, drum roll please, is the first three time winner of the most prestigious of Tales’ awards.  This person is such a great quipster I call him the Greg Gutfeld of twitter.  He is, Dan the man, @Dannerism.  

Dan from Mesa, AZ calls himself “Comedian, Mathematician, Juggler, Conservatarian,Teacher, Observer, Patriot and Performer of Antics and Semantics”


Without further ado, the Tales Tweet of the Week:  

Dannerism ‏@Dannerism  
Recount Cash Cow: The Green Party is now the Green Party

____________________________________
Update Correction As a recount was just demanded by the Green Party, or Dan the man, or both, the Tales law firm, “Dewey, Cheatem and Howe” has just informed me that the Tales is mistaken in calling @Dannerism a 3-time winner. @Dannerism received his 3 time winner status on the May 19th edition of the Tales Tweet of the Week.


So, Dan from Mesa, AZ is officially a 4-time winner of the Tales Tweet of the Week.


Apologies to Dan the man for this oversight.

The New York Times (Accidentally) Debunks the Never-Ending Fairy Tale of Gun Control

When I write about gun control, I generally make two arguments. First, criminals are lawbreakers, so the notion that they will be disarmed because of gun control is a fantasy. Crooks and thugs who really want a gun will always have access to black-market weapons. Second, to the extent that good people obey bad gun-control […]

Thanksgiving, Redistributionism, and Libertarianism

What’s the fundamental problem with redistributionist economic policy? As a libertarian, I would answer with a philosophical argument against coercion. I think it is immoral for vote-seeking politicians, using the threat of imprisonment, to rob Peter to subsidize Paul. But as an economist, the problem is incentives. Simply stated, redistribution from Peter to Paul undermines […]

Have You Ever Seen Claire McCaskill And Diane Black In The Same Room At The Same Time?

On Sunday morning I was in the other room from the TV and was listening to Jake Tapper’s “State of the Union” on CNN and heard one of the members of the panel speaking, and I thought to myself, ‘oh, that sounds like Senator Claire McCaskill, D-MO’. &nb…

Secession, Federalism, and National Comity (Plus more Intentional and Unintentional Election-Related Humor)

The concept of secession (part of a jurisdiction breaking away to become independent) has a bad reputation in the United States because it is linked to the reprehensible institution of slavery. But, as Walter Williams has explained, secession today may be an effective way of protecting liberty from ever-expanding centralized government. And I’ve favorably written […]

Tax Rates and Mobility of Superstar Inventors (along with more Election-Related Humor)

Back in 2010, I shared a cartoon video making a very important point that there’s a big downside when class-warfare politicians abuse and mistreat highly productive taxpayers. Simply stated, the geese with the golden eggs may fly away. And this isn’t just theory. As revealed by IRS data, taxpayer will move across borders to escape […]

Final Election Predictions, Last-Minute Political Humor, and a Silver Lining to the Dark Cloud of 2016

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 […]

So, What Is It That Trump Followers Love About Trump?

Crying (but also Laughing) about Clinton and Trump

One interesting feature of this election is that many voters, grappling with the unpalatable choice of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, are dealing with the feelings of dismay and despair that libertarians experience almost every election. All I can say is, “welcome to my world.” Though I admit our experiences aren’t the same. Ordinary voters […]

The Clump Version of Political Humor

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 […]
