Some Weekend Reading
14 Mar 2009 10:32 Filed in: Weekend Reading
The Tired Donkey hopes that you are able to unload your burden for the weekend, and he would like to suggest some reading for you. The Tired Donkey believes in doing research so that you may become an educated donkey, a donkey who is able to argue from facts and not emotions. In this spirt, he respectfully suggests perusing the postings of the Tax Policy Center and the Tax Foundation. Both collect a wealth of primary sources that will allow you avoid arguing from the error-laden rantings of the pundits.
The Tired Donkey also enjoys the various posting at the Liberty Papers blog, and particularly recommends taking a look at this post which collects commentary on the “Going Galt” debate. Now, the Tired Donkey will be the first to admit that he is no John Galt; he is not nearly as handsome or creative or rich. And, though wading through Ayn Rand’s prose stylings in Atlas Shrugged is a tough slog, the Tired Donkey recommends you make the effort as it contains many ideas of continuing importance. More on Monday.
